    I have a 5th generation 80 gig ipod classic that will not play music. I know its not a problem with the headphone jack because in diagnostic mode it produces static in the headphones. Also, when plugging in a 30 pin jack to 3.5 mm jack that also doesn't play music. I have tried restoring and I dont know what else to do. Any help would be awesome.

    What does the interface look like? Is everything functioning well software-wise?

    Pretty common issue with the 5th gen classics. If you squeeze the bottom right near the clickwheel you should hear music. Some manufacturing defect causes a connection to get dislodged for some reason.

    Your choices now are to use it as a hard drive, pay to have it fixed or fix it yourself (good luck,) or sell it as-is.
