iPod button sensor issue

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
Okay, so last night, I was able to use the rewind button sensor on my iPod, but today, I am not able to, all of my other buttons work fine, but the rewind will not respond...I have reset it, but still no luck. Any ideas, or is this just an Applecare solution...It is a 3G iPod BTW.

    At times, buttons on my 3G iPod get stuck too. Try to clean them or clean your fingers. Try to tap the buttons with your other hand or your other fingers. I know this sounds stupid, but buttons on 3G iPods can be strange at times.

    Hope it helps.

    Thanks for your reply, I finally got it to work as a last straw I switched the hold button back and forth and that brought the sensor back to life, it was crazy, but it did the trick, I had remembered that sometimes at the gym, my play button will freeze, so I just would switch the hold back and forth...It seemed to solve the problem, so I am posting this here in case anyone else runs into the same problem.
