THis problem is caused by weakness inside. The headphones have no matter. After 50-60 times you put them in & out they will broke)     I fixed it by myself, but i think it would be better to you to go to the Philips repair centre in your city) It will definetly be there if the city is big))

Unfortunately - that is a common problem with mp3 players - the headphone jack itself is damaged (check a 2nd set of headphones just to be sure). Philips does not sell the headphone jack by itself, so it looks like it's replacement time - I would call Philips and see how much it would cost to replace the whole player (won't be much more than 100$ even if out of warranty). If you wanted to try to work with the existing player, you could twist the headphones until you find a position where both sides work - then keep it in that place, and don't move around too much.

My sony tv screan is written no signal and i keep trying to turn it on but its not coming on , ido not know what else to do. i have tried every thing i thaught was right but failed,onybannis@

Your TV may be on the wrong input setting. Find the Source or Input button on your remote control or television set and press it to select a different input. If this is not the problem, try checking all the video cables connected to the TV, as well as the video devices you are trying to use. For example, your cable box may be broken and not sending a signal to the TV. If you have a second TV to test each video device on, that is a good way to narrow down the possibilities. If all of your devices work, your cables are plugged in and your TV is on the correct input setting, there may be an internal problem with your television, which would require a professional to repair.

Where is batter located and what size do you need?

The battery is inside the case under the logic board.
To get at you will need a very small phillips screwdriver and a very small prie tool (Spectical flat screwdriver will do).
1/ Place your unit screen down on a towel (Prevent scratching the screen)
2/ Remove the small rubber plugs on each corner. There are 4
3/ Remove the 4 small phillips head screws.
4/ Now the tricky bit with the prie tool or small flat head screwdriver. pop it into the sides
gently and pop out the locking tabs, work you way all around (there are two on each side).
Be gentle doing this as the electronics inside here are very delicate.
5/ OK now the back is loose you will need to unplug the speaker from the logic board. Now
the back can be completly removed.
6/ There are 2 screws holding the logic board in place 1 on the left 1 on the right. Remove them.
7/ Now on the side were you put your SD card in apply gental pressure to push out the plasic and at the same time lift out the logic board, remember to lift up the microphone at the top left.
8/ Wala theres your battery it is taped in place so gental pressure will be needed to lift it out
Unplug and replace rebuild is the reverse of stripdown.
Once you put it all back together you will need to charge it for at least 4 hours.
Good luck hope this helped you

It has stopped speaking. Everything else works fine. We have checked that the voice is definitely switched on. It's a TomTom about 4 years old.

the spoken direction mode only works when you have selected the "computer voice" option. If you have changed the voice in the settings, spoken direction will be disabled. Also, in the settings, there is an option to switch off the speaker. Make sure you have not done this. Finally, tap the bottom left hand side of the screen and move the slider bar to the right to increase volume.
I hope one of these hints helps

Garmin Nuvi won't talk. No sound when programming

If the mute is not checked, try plugging in a set of headphones. if you now hear sound, your internal speaker is blown. Please see this link:

I am having the same problem with a twist, sound works from the fm and headphone but only from the right side no left audio. I have the 760 and it only has one speaker and my guess it that it gets its feed...

If you use the headphone jack a lot and your missing the audio from the speaker and one channel from the headphone jack, then it's possible that some of the headphone jack connections have broken off of the PC board. The audio goes to the speaker through the headphone jack.

Please see this link for more info and read the section about the headphone jack.

Loose sound to left side

I have the same EXACT problem. Most of the time only the right speaker plays and the left doesn't but when they both play its very distorted. I've tried everything. Resetting the ipod does not work and its not the ipod because when I use it on my fiance's avic-x910 its perfect. If I remove my head unit and play with the wires its fixed but only for a short while. I've soldered the connections so they are solid but I still have this issue. Any help?

Is the sound muted? and I assume you have the volume set at maximum?

On the older Nuvi's you could try plugging in a set of headphones to see if you could hear audio. If you could, then that verified that the internal speaker is bad. On the Nuvi 2xx series there is no head phone jack so there is not an easy way to confirm if the speaker is bad.

From my experience is repairing Nuvi's I would say that your internal speaker is bad, provided all of the settings are correct. The speaker will need to be replaced. I can help you with that.

Best wishes,

Tom tom gps speakers not working.

I have had the same problem. I bought my gps used.I soon found out sound would not come out of the gps untill I taped on the back of the gps. I solved my problem. The voice coil in the speaker becomes detached. Their are 4 screws in the back of the gps once you open up the gps the speaker is attached to the back of the inside of the gps. You have to carefully detach the speaker from the back of the gps ( I used a small flat head screw driver like one from a eye glass repair kit ) then press lightly on the center of the speaker wile the gps is trying to talk (hopefully when you do this the speaker will make noise). I stacked 2 dimes in the center of the housing of the speaker then reatached the speaker to the housing thus sandwitching the 2 dimes between the housing and the center of the speaker. For my unit this put enough pressure on the center of the speaker for the system to work. Then I reassembled the gps. It was about 4 or 5 months ago and the speaker still works fine. Some times the easy solution works just fine.

You mean helmet speakers? If you use the bike mount it should work, the car mount is a line out(not amplified so the sound is very poor) I had a wired helmet set, worked okay below 50 KMh
