Question about Samsung YP-T8 Digital Media Player

1 Answer

Audio problem im assuming something in the slot where you plug the headphones in is broken. originally one side of my headphones was cutting out and i went ahead and bought new head phones. fixing the problem for only a day. the next day i decided to go exchange the headphones and they wouldnt because i bought them from a cheap store. so i went to bestbuy and bought better more expensive headphones. only to find the problem got worse. now 1 side of the headphones did not play at all while the other cut out. ive tried plugging in the old headphones and still 1 side doesnt work and the other cuts out. i then tried plugging the headphones in a cd player. and all 3 worked perfectly. now before i run off and buy a new mp3 player is there anything i could possibly do to fix this? is there a place where i can get it repaired at? theres no screws or anything to get inside the digital audio player so im assuming im pretty much out of luck. but i figured it wouldnt hurt to ask.

Nope it never hurts to ask as in this case it seams theres a common problem where the headphone jack has a cold solder connection on the pc board or its broken loose from the pc board itself. Now unless you get instuctions on how to open this unit do not attemt to try!! as its all plastic locking tabs and you need to know where to press to realease these tabs .. I would contact www.samsung.com or call them and see what they have to say as there is probably a flat rate they charge to fix these units

Why is the sound in one ear only?


It's probably a broken wire.

First, make sure it happens with those headphones no matter what you plug them into. If you're using them on your computer, try plugging them into your phone or someone else's computer. If you're using the quarter-inch adapter, try plugging into something that will take the eight-inch plug (the picture I'm seeing of your headphones shows an eighth-inch plug with a quarter-inch adapter). If the problems goes away, then it's either the adapter or the audio jack on the original device. But a new quarter-inch adapter online or at your local Radio Shack. If that doesn't fix it, then the jack on your device is shot, and your best bet is probably to get a new device. (Before I spent the money on a new device, I'd borrow another set of headphones, just to be sure that the problem persists no matter what headphones you use.) If the device is a computer, then you can buy a USB sound card (which plugs into a USB port and has mike and headphone jacks on the other end) instead of replacing the whole computer.

But it's more likely that the problem will persist no matter what you plug into, and it's your headphones. It's probably a broken wire; sometimes if you jiggle the wires going into the dead earpiece, you'll get crackling to confirm this diagnosis. But it doesn't really matter why the headphones don't work; no matter what's broken, the repair is more expensive than replacement. Time for new headphones.

The above answer assumes that you are listening to a stereo sound source. In addition to trying your headphones on another device, you should make sure you're listening to a stereo sound.

Can you send sound from a headphone output to an rac input? kvncloete@gmail.com


I assume that instead of a headphone you want to pop the sound through your stereo or something to that effect? You can take a cable with the same plug as your headphone and RCA sockets on the other end and plug it in and it should work

I just recently got a pair of Audio-Technica ATH-ANC27 headphones and I've noticed that when I touch the detachable cable the sound shorts out and plays through one side of the headphones.


There is a wire in the detachable cable that is broken inside so might have to cut and rejoin the broken part.Thats why when you touch the detachable cable you happen to move the wire so sound is only transmitted to one ear phone only.

Thanks and good luck

Right side of bose headphone is not working


I have fixed over 500 headphones. Its the plug that connects to audio devices.
Take a look at it http://images.appleinsider.com/ipodiphoneav-review-5.jpg
http://sound.westhost.com/p70-f2.gif
Look at the Standard stereo headphone. When you plug it and unplug it from your audio/music device,
the little 3 or 4 wires disconnect. The smaller the headphone, the more chance this will happen.
To revive your headphone, you have to cut it and re solder the wires to the plug.
follow this step because I don't know how to explain it to you and make you understand it.

I purchased this mp3 on 11th devmber. the music is not getting through to the headphones - can you help? is it powered by a battery & is one included as standard?


Hi mharrington9,

You may want to post the make and model of your mp3 player. Someone may have solved the same problem with the same player, and would then be able to give you a more specific answer than this one;

I assume you have replaced or re-charged the battery first, and that full power to your player did not help. If so, it is likely to be a problem with the headphones, the headphone receptacle, or the amplifier inside the mp3 player;

1) Headphone problem?
Get a different set of ear-bud headphones, and try them out. If the alternative set works but your headphones do not work, it's the headphones.

1a) Large headphones, small player?
If your headphones are large, but the power of your MP3 player is small, the player may not have enough power to drive the headphone speakers. If you run your MP3 player through an additional amplifier, you may then have enough power to get sound out of your headphones.

1b) Broken wire in ear bud jack?
Most of my broken ear-bud sets have failed because one or more of the wires has broken, usually at the plug-end. There are 3 thin wires; If you break the left-channel or right-channel wire, only one earbud goes out. If you break the ground wire, both earbuds stop working, or you may hear a very faint sound at full volume. If you like to solder things, it is possible to get a new plug, cut off the old one, and solder in a new one. But it may be easier to get a new set of earbuds.

2) Broken Receptacle?

Plug your ear-buds into a different, working MP3 player. If the ear-buds work, then
Plug your MP3 into a computer through the data cable, and try to play something through the computer.
If the MP3 works through the data cable, something is wrong with the receptacle for your ear-bud plug.
You may be able to get your MP3 player replaced under warranty, since the purchase was recent. Or, if no warranty and you feel adventurous, take the back off and try to re-solder or replace the receptacle-- Though this usually ends in irreparable damage to the MP3 player :-\

3) Broken MP3 player?
If you can't get any music to play through the data cable or the computer, something is seriously wrong with the guts of the MP3 player. Try for a warranty replacement if you can.

Best of luck, mharrington9

Hi,,in most cases what causes one side of the headphone to work is because, the wire that is connected to speaker inside the headphone might have cut and it's not contacting properly.

What you will need to do is to open up the head phone (left),and check if the wire inside has not cut, If it has removed ,then you will need to put it back with soldering iron and a lead...

But if the wire inside has not removed and they are intact, then you will have to replace the left speaker .

Your headphone jack connections have broken inside, cutting off the speaker and one side od the audio, left or right. The jack needs to be replaced or resoldered.

I have a casio keyboard and if i plug headphones into the audio hole they dont work it just plays out loud. help.


It is important that your headphones are STEREO tyoe as a monaural 1/4 inch plug will short out one side of the output audio.

Make sure the plug is fully seated as it has a switch in the unit that disconnects the speakers typically when headphones are plugged in.

If your speakers do not get cut off when you plug in the headphones, it is POSSIBLLE that the switches on the jack have been broken. This would require servicing.

My right earphone won't play


Sound not coming out of one side of the headphone is an indication of connection failure, so that means you have to see where its 'broken' from, either inside the headphone on on the wire somewhere. Usually it happens at the jack, especially if you use an ipod as it tends to get moved alot in pockets, etc..

If this is the case, you could try to cut the wire from where you suspect its broken, and get a 3.5mm (or whatever the original size is) replacement (Do-it-yourself) jack from Radio shack or electronics store.

THen you would have to cut the wire, strip the the rubber coating off, and then if applicable, carefully strip the very thin layer of further insulation thats on the wire it self. Otherwise you would directly connect the cables to the prongs/connections located on the replacement jack. And depending on the jack you would screw it in place or soldier it with soldier and soldiering gun.

If its broken in the headphone or at the headphone, thats much harder to do as you would have to open the head/earphone case and soldier it that way and get it back together in one piece.

Next time don't buy bose headphones and by something cheaper, bose isn't that great, skullcandy is pretty good too. Sennheiser is the best though in my opinion. albieit its expensive too..
