You need to get a new head phone jack installed. It should be free if it is still under warranty.

This issue is caused by either wear and tear of the jack or by a weak pin which would be covered under the manufacturing warranty.

I can hear only from right headphone of my sony bluetooth


Either the left headphone is shot or the headphone jack is messed up. Try a different set of head phones if its same result see about replacing the jack.

On deaf ear


sounds like headphone jack is either dirty or loose in the unit or a possible blown fuse.

if still under warrenty I would get it serviced if not then if you feel comfortable opening it up and looking around the inside of the unit around the sounds output jack then you can try that and see if you can find any blown or burnt problems around there loose connections.

The head phone jack is causing crackles and static noise and not a clear reception. I move the earbud jack around to get the right sound. Is there a way to permanently fix the headphone jack port?


It is very possible that the problem lies with your headphones and not the player. Have you tried to use a different set of headphones to see if that fixes the problem?

Why can't I no longer hear music through the earphones on my sharper image mp4 player?


Try another set of headphones to verify it's not the head phones that's the problem. If the other set of head phones don't work, then the audio output jack is the problem.

ITouch 2nd g only plays music throuhg left side of all headphones


Try playing with the headphone plug, until you can also hear the right
channel and also try a different set of headphones as it is probably a
matter of an intermittent headphone jack, or plug, owing to sudden
snatching of the headphone plug from same, a very common problem.

Eliminate this cause before submitting your Touch for much more
expensive remedies

Ipod head phone jack no good


I agree with Solution 5. The copper pins in the jack that make the connection to your headphone plug are bent in such a way that they are springy and will make a good tight connection to the plug. When those copper connections get worn, they are not so springy and they bend inward causing you to lose audio on one side of your headphones unless you wiggle the plug and find that sweet spot that makes a connection. Then you have to hold the wire to keep pressure on it... it gets annoying.

You can open the case and there are slots in the headphone jack that you can get a hook scribe (like the dentists use) or safety pin to bent those copper connections back out. Don't bend them too far or they will break. You can also pick get a new part for $25 or a used part much cheaper. Once you iPod is open, it's a matter of a couple screws and a ribbon cable to replace the jack. Problem solved!
