    I have to keep jiggling my earphones to hear the music everytime I move. I just wanted to know if anyone had any suggestions, or the same problem.

Nothing works long term, you just have to get a newer, more advanced mp3 player

For a temporary fix, I stretched a rubber band around the base of the headphone jack (where it plugs into the dj) and brought it around to the back of the belt clip thus forcing the metal part of the jack to contact the inside of the female part of the connection. This worked for the past couple years. Since then, however, performance has degraded slightly and now I only get sound from one side...

I had the same problem you had on a Dell DJ 30 I wrapped aluminum foil around my headphone jack and I plugged the headphones in. When I took my headphones out, the aluminum foil got stuck inside the player. I put the headphones back in and tested it and it worked. The aluminum foil is well placed in there and doesn't come out. I just did this a few minutes ago, so I am not sure of the long-term effects of this. Some articles I have read on the internet seem to suggest that this can cause a short-circuit. I am not sure and cautious about this. I will continue to use my mp3 player, but I might discontinue use in my car, for fear of shorting out my car speaker.

Theres a good posibility that the solder connections are the only thinbg wrong with the connections BUT theres a possibility that the Printed curcuit board its self is a flex board and that the flex connections are torn. If thats the case you probably wont be able to fix the unit. If you can open the unit then you can look at the connections and see if its just plain old solder connections?? Good Luck

It only lets me listen to music in one ear


  • If you have a warranty I would definitely send it back to the manufacturer. Most companies will pay for shipping for warranty repairs as well. What sounds like has happened happens a lot. The plug the jack plugs into (inside the Mp3 player) gets a cold soldier joint or the jack on the ear buds gets caught on something one to many times and breaks a soldier joint loose.

  • I usually open the media players and reheat the soldier joints myself. If you have already tried a different pair of ear buds it is almost certainly the jack inside the MP3.

  • Hope this helps.

One of my ear phones is not working


Check the cable at both ends, at the connection to the headphones and the jack. Try jiggling it around a bit while you have music playing to see if you have a loose connection. If this is the problem a temporary fix is to tape the cable up in the position where the wires inside are connected.

When I listen to my music you can hear the instrument, but you can't hear the singing. HELP.


Hi, when your using an ear-phone and you hear only the instruments alone, it means that the ear-phone is bringing out a mono signal(always have one ring at the tip of the jack),but if it was two rings,then you will have a stereo signal that will allow you to hear both the instruments and the voice..

Hope that helped..

Thanks for using fixya.

Got my Skullcandy Lowrider Headphones 2 days ago, fine at the start, but then the music only played in one ear, unless I wiggled the headphone jack about a bit. Today, it got worse, with neither of them...


I suggest you take them back to the shop and see what they say, hope you kept the recit! Otherwise contact Skullcanday. Don't attemp to fix it yourself or you won't get your money back or any replacement, as you should under law.

Ear jack in Iriver h10 doesn't work correctly


I bought a used unit from ebay with the same problem (discovered later) and had to buy another as-is player, open it up, and replace the defective headphone jack module on the first player.
see this forum for directions to open player: forum

plan b - sell the unit as-is on ebay and put your profits toward a 20gb refurb for $30-60 (from sellers like metromania)

Ear phone jack needs to be replaced


If you know anyone with soldering capability the pads on the headphone jack just need to be re-soldered. Mine did the same thing so I re-flowed the solder joint and now it works perfect.

Headphone jack


I have the same problem with my DJ 30, and it exists with several different types of headphones.
I am thinking about trying a mono to stereo adaper, where the plug is mono, and the ear phones are stereo. I don't know if it will work or not.
