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$)

First find out which side on your multi media divice is loose then on the opposite side of which you had to push your plug, put a piece of aluminum foil and itll work perfectly if you only use a little peice just fold it a few times( once or twice ) and then push it into the headphone slot if it doesnt fit than use a smaller peice of aluminum foil. second hold onto the peice on aluminum foil wile you put it into the jack so it doesnt fall in and get stuck.

this works perfectly just change out the aluminume foil once a week or a day make sure you leave your headphones in dont take them out or you will have to repeat this process and that sucks

Ok this is a quick fix i have done for my mp3 players with a bad headphone jack, i always end up wearing out the headphone jack very quickly. so i reccomend you use tape like electric tape. what u do, is u push up on the headphone plug connector whatever u wanna call it. now play with it until its perfect then u should be able to hear both working. then just tape it there. works perfectly, just replace the tape once in a while.

    i have the best fix ever now. its a smart one too. get somebody else to fix it, my father has a few friends who are professional engineers and they are gonna fix it for me. And people i know what your going through. its annoying. but seriously until you can get it fixed properly tape it.you can tape it and sometimes pushing it up or down will fix it. people on my other fixes will laugh a bit about it. until they try it. and it will work. so dont laugh this one off. this will work for a while. electric tape. gorilla tape, scotch tape. just get tape and use the tape to hold it.

Where are you? There is a good repair center in Penrith. But that's no good to you if you are in Wyoming.

My ipod classic is only playing out of 1 headphone, it is the same with all headphones


Step 1:
Your trusty iPod has been a close and reliable friend for a long time but one morning only the sound of air comes through the headphones. The likely culprit is a loose or broken headphone jack that is in need of repair. Rather than spend an exorbitant amount of money to have someone fix it you can easily make the repair on your own and have your iPod friend back. Read on to learn how to fix a broken headphone jack for a fifth generation 30GB or 60GB iPod video.

Open the iPod case with a small flathead screwdriver by slipping it under the centerline of the case. You will find a series of clips you have to release in order for the case to open up about an inch. Locate the headphone jack connection and verify that there are no broken wires. Fix broken wires quickly by twisting the wires back together and wrapping with electrical tape. Test the iPod for sound by connecting your headphones to the jack. Replace the wires completely if you find static coming from the iPod jack. Fold a business card twice so that it wants to unfold and slip it into the case over the blue sponge. This creates the pressure needed to hold the jack in place and allow a solid connection. Push the case together without engaging the clips on the side and test to make sure the jack is now working. Try a thicker business card or fold the first one again to get enough pressure onto the jack connection if the first card didn't fix the problem. Press the case fully together until the clips click into place. Use extra care when inserting your headset to ensure the jack remains in place.

Headphone jack requires bending the headphone jack to a side to get stereo. this is the coby mp725 16 gig love the unit. got it as a gift. had to send my first unit in due to headphone jack not working....


This problem is common with a lot of MP3 players. It is caused by excessive movement of the headphone jack and causes the headphone jack has worked loose from the circuit board.
To fix this problem the MP3 player needs dismantling and the headphone jack needs resoldering onto the circuit board to get the headphone working properly.

The headphones crackle, tried several different headphones, no better. I have to twist the end of it to get it to work. The slightest bump will make it crackle again.


This happens when the headphone jack gets rust on its surface or it is loose.

Clean the jack using a tissue paper on matchstick (or a similar thin object). Be gentle or you may destroy it!

If cleaning did not help you may need to replace the jack. Contact for repairs or if you have experience in soldering, you can purchase a replacement jack online (search ebay) and solder it in.

Hello, headphone jack is loose, i have to hold the jack and press ir against an angle to make both chanels work. walter


Hi Walter,

If the headphone jack is loose you can try to use the USB headset (If there is one) or Bluetooth.
If you wanna fix the headphone jack yourself you can find a very good step by step guide here.
The repair service will take about anything from 40$-60$ to repair it.

Good Luck!

DONT CLEAR THE VOICE OF SONGS


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.

Nano shows song playing but nothing happens


Make sure your headphones are working properly by testing with your computer headphone jack.

Is the headphone port on the Nano loose?

Connect the Nano to your iPod dock and see if you can head audio through the docks headphone jack.

If the headphones work, and you can get audio out of the dock headphone port, then there is a problem with your Nanos headphone jack.

Headphone prob


hmm...alright then.
1. Check the volume (but I expect you've probably done this)
2. Instead of putting mp4 or m4a on the computer try to put mp3 or wma on the player
3. Does the USB work too? The usb is also out of the headphone jack. If there's problems with that, then there's problems with the jack
4. Have you been pulling hard on the USB to take it out of the jack? If so the headphone jack part of the jack may have gotten a bit loose.
5. Call RCA. Chances are the person you get is from India. Talk slowly and tell them your problem.

There is a reason for the headphone jack being loose. You either repeatedly plug and unplug your headphones, or the headphone's wire is to big. Nothing else to say, sorry!
