Question about Dell DJ MP3 Player

How do I take it apart so I can re-solder the ear jack. I can't get inside it

I have a problem with the earjack and a suggested solution was to see if a connection needed to be re-soldered. I cant seem to find a way to open it up without destroying the player. Please help.

Make sure you remove the scroll wheel first or you can damage it very easily.

I had this same problem.
If you have the Gen II (I believe) that has a solid case, ie no visible split, or "rubber feet", then you must remove both of the black ends. Once you have them off, you may then remove the screws from the corners and gently lift the metal plates out of each end. Once there you can see the "guts" of the player. Disconnect the battery connector, (the small 2 wire plug) then gently pull the battery out of the case. Then CAREFULLY push the board up from the bottom so that the top of the player comes out of the case. Solder the 4 points of the jack & check that there is no corrosion inside the jack. Now reverse the directions to put it all back together. That should do it.

the jack inside the unit either is bad or the solder connections are bad...you can re-solder the jack(if you know how to solder) and see if this fixes it...or else you'll have to replace the jack(which may be avail. through Radio Shack)

I just bought an Archos 404 on Ebay and the headphone jack is not working properly! The sound only comes out of one side. I can get it to play out of both ears but its takes alot of jiggling and pulling it...


Well it is really hard to find the part other than seeing if you can find another one on ebay for parts. That is what I would do and pull the headphone jack out if that one and use it. But no one has that part only Company that manufacturs it

No sound--master volume says ear jack


i put it in the freezer, hit it, drove a nail into the earjack port. then i poured water into the earjack port, held a lighter to it, and blew into it, none of that worked, so i jammed a paper clip into the earport and that fixed it. i also slammed in on the ground a few times.

The center pin of the external power supply jack is broken off. Is there some place who repairs scanners ?


your second option is to re route the track so by solder 2 wires to the original power input and routing them to the ear phone socket make sure to disconnect the wirering from the ear socket first ,on your power supply unit remove the jack and replace with ear phone jack makes sure to put positive to centre and other to ground earth

My guitar hero world tour drum kit is broken


If you know how to solder, you can resolder the wire back onto the connector. I just did that tonight actually. the orange cymbal has a white wire and a black/bare copper wire. You can cut open the male connector [I use an exact-o knife along the underside mold line] (one side only) so you can just slide the wires/connector back into it. The white would solder onto the base of the male connector. The bare copper thats wrapped around the white one is the black/bare copper wire mentioned above. This one is soldered to the tip [the solder point inside that small black plastic piece] of the connector. Once you have it soldered, just slip the male connector rubber piece back into place and use some super glue to glue back together.I wrap it in electrical tape just so its definitely secured. If wire length is an issue, simply solder some wire extensions before soldering to the male connector/plug.

Tdk mp100 headphone jack


Each of the rubber covered cords running to each ear piece has two fine strand wire bundles inside. The right ear piece has a red colored strand and a copper colored strand. The left ear piece has a green colored strand and a copper colored strand. The wires are coated with an insulation lacquer. The lacquer burns off when you heat the wire for soldering.

Repair item: 3.5 mm stereo headphone jack, shrink tubing

Plan for strain relief:. These headphone wires can't take any tension at all. You need to crimp the black cords to the headphone jack somehow.

Slide strain relief and headphone jack housing over the over the rubber covered headphone cord.

  • You need to plan a way to relieve the pulling stress on the solder joints where the two headphone cords enter your replacement headphone jack.
  • Try shrink tubing if you have it.
  • If you have some thermal shrink tubing, slide a piece over the headphone cord end before stripping the wires.
  • Slide the headphone jack casing over the headphone cord also.
Strip each headphone cord 5/8" using the 18 gage setting of your wire stripper..

Hold each headphone cord in a "third hand" soldering assist tool and tease the green, red and copper bundles apart..I wore a 10x Magnavisor and I used a sewing needle and a bright light.

Twist the copper colored strands from both headphone cords together. They are the common ground wires. The copper colored bundle will attach to the headphone jack ground.

Apply a dab of solder to the end of each of the three bundles of wire. You will see and smell the insulating lacquer as it burns off. Keep most of the wire bundle cool.

Position the two strand headphone cord and the 3.5 mm headphone jack in the third hand soldering stand.
  • Plan where you can crimp the headphone cord. Crimp it when ready.
  • The green == left channel wire goes to the tip of the 3.5mm jack.
  • The red==right channel wire goes to the middle of the 3.5 mm jack
  • The copper colored wires go to the ground of the jack..
  • Measure resistance, 31 ohms per earpiece.
  • Screw the jack cover on and finish the strain relief craftsmanship.

One earphone works


i had the same exact problem with mine. Reading around it seems to be a common problem with the Sansa line. I opened mine up and found that one of the solder points that holds the ear phone jack to the main board had come loose. I soldered it back and it works like a charm. Pretty easy too. If you have a soldering iron, just open it up and resolder the solder point that has broken off. You can read instructions for disassembly here: http://www.anythingbutipod.com/archives/2006/11/sandisk-sansa-c200-disassembled.php When you have it apart, looking at it from the side, with the jack to the right, the broken point should be the rear (closest to the circuitry) point. You will see a very small, not sure what to call it, chip on the board you have to solder a connection to. here is a diagram: http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e321/fuzzygoat/sansa-c200-disassembley-8.jpg Hope this helps.

Problems with hole you place the ear phone


The ear phone jack is lose and your gonna need to or have someone resolder the audio jack inside the unit. if you know how to solder then it shouldnt be a big deal once you get the bugger apart. if your not good with a soldering iron, take the unit to an electronic repair shop and there shouldnt be much of a charge exept for minumum beance charge as this is not a major repair UNLESS the jack is ripped out of the PCboard or theres a flex cable connected to the ear jack as thats hard to fix correctly. Good Luck
