    Same problem here :-(



    Glad to see it's a common thing, I've never experienced such a ridiculous problem with the many earphones i've experienced over the years.



    Based on the number of complaints, Bose in-ear headphones are obviously faulty.....AVOID THEM!

    Same here - I have to wiggle the lead near to the jack and the problem is becoming worse by the day.



    It seems to be a common fault - considering the cost of these headphones you would think they'd be problem free.



    The 2 year Bose warranty is only valid if you bought from an authorised seller which isn't great news for me!

No not really as the wires are extremely difficult to solder etc, best to contact bose for warrenty replacement or just have to go buy another pair.

Earphone jack on my compaq presario c700 stopped working. How do I fix it?


You will need professional help on this, the laptop must be dismantled down to the motherboard level to access the problem. The earphone jack may have to be replaced and requires a high degree of solder skills to remedy the situation.

One of the earphones doesn't always work you have to jiggle the wire near in the input plug and it will go on and off in the left earphone what's wrong and if possible how do i fix it


The wire in the plug or near it has broken. You can fix it if you know how to use a soldering iron. You will need to purchase a jack plug from your electronic shop. Determine where the break is and cut the cable below it. You will need to strip the end of the cable to get to the wires. There will be at least two coloured wires and two earths. Next with a sharp knife open the plastic barrell of the old plug. This should tell you where the wires connect on your new one. If in doubt remember that the earths will go together on the long metal piece of a 3.5mm plug. The two coloured wires (left & right) will go on the smaller lugs. If you get them wrong reverse them, but it will not hurt anything if you do. If the sound is spaced out after you have done connecting. Then a earth wire(s) is off. Make certain the wires only connect with the lugs they are supposed to and the solder doesn't short anything.

My earphones won't work


Usually this is a problem with the wires in the earphones themselves actually being broken or the connection on the earplugs is too small. I suggest borrowing another pair of earphones to make sure the problem actually is in the Zen. If another pair works, you know the issue is the earphones. If the problem remains even with different earphones, take a look in the earphone jack hole to make sure nothing is stuck in it like paper or something. If everything is clean, the earphone jack or its soldered connections inside the Zen may be cracked and will require the unit to be opened and serviced.

Speaker problem


you wont, it will sense off of the jack as to which output method to use. If the jack is bad and the device cannot communicate with it, it will remain in its current state.

Left side of stereo earphone does not work.


In side of your left wire there are two tiny coper wires (either blue/green/Red and gold) one of which is easily cut off.
Peel off the wire cover (Dont cut it off) near the earphone head (normally not more than an inch) to findout where one of the colored wire is cut off and fix it.
Note: Before you could join or fix this broken one firstly you need to burn up the color coded wire with fire for a SECOND so that all the color (green/Red...) are cleaned up.

If this dont fix Please tell me. Im here to help you

Good Luck!

Sansa E250 Left Earphone Issue


I have the same problem and read on other forums that it was because of a MusicEQ glitch and that if you swtched it to a non-Normal mode and then back to Normal, the problem would fix itself. This didn't work for me, but maybe it will for you.

(Just got off the phone with Sandisk Tech Support and they basically told me to update to the latest firmware, but that didn't work either so they said that they didn't know what else to tell me and let me go. Not exactly helpful.)
