Re: Samsung MP3 512MB
Loose headset jacks are a very common thing and sometimes easy to fix. First thing make sure you know how to take apart the device as they all dont have screws as some units have snaps and you dont wanna break them. If you do get it apart, see if the solder connections are loose or broken. If you know how to solder then touch the solder iron with a bit of solder and let it flow only on the one tab. Next resolder the other two as there are usually three terminals. If the flex board or printed curcuit board seems to come off with it then your gonna need to run a small(26-28 gauge)wire from the jack connection to another part of the PCB thats along the same line as the terminal. If all this is a little frightning then take the unnit to a pro as this is a minor repair MOST of the time and should'nt cost much. Good Luck

ok well i am thinking that if you wiggle around the headphone jack you might get it. i believe you have a few loose solders and i hope that we have found the problem, i have a samsung yp-p2 and the headphone jack is loose and the lyrics will fade out basically and become unclear, so your headphone jack is probably loose.
if there isn't screws to take the MP3 player apart then their are clips on the inside
Unscrew the screws (or if you have clips from the on/off switch use a screw driver to open it. this isn't the most safest way to open it i could break so this is a last opption.) ussing a sodering iron resoder the conection between the loose headphone jack and the curcit board.
(you can pick up a sodering iron at Radio shack for as low as 10$)
On some creative mp3 players like my 20g sleek photo, the problem stems from poor design on the solder joint inside the unit. I did a search and found a tutorial with pics on how to take it apart and resolder it. It works now but cosmetically it's not 100%. If it's still under warranty, I think for $20 bucks you can send it back and they'll fix it....goodluck!
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
