Hi, my iPod has been fudging up lately. The volume sounds like it's at 60% volume level when really it's at 0%. When I increase it, there is literally no difference in the volume level (it's loud) until it passes 75% or so where it gets even louder. EVERYTHING is fine. Music still plays, no crackling sounds, no nothing. I don't remember dropping it or water damage or anything. Initially it did come with the crackling issue (crackling noises when the chord is touched) and I sent it in for repairs which fixed that. But this volume issue is still persistent. And no, it's not the earphone I'm using. If I can't fix it, I can live with it. I usually do have my music on loud (but not that loud) but it's just that it's a little annoying sometimes.
