Headphone jack issues

Whenever I bump the plug attached to my headphones, I lose audio quality. I have had this issue with more than just this mp3 player; two cd players and a tape player have also experienced this problem. Since it is so common, someone must know how to fix it. I have tried cleaning out the jack (I thought that maybe there was some dust or something blocking the connection) but it did no good. Has anyone ever managed to fix this problem? Any assistance would be appreciated.

Given your experience with other devices it seems likely to be your headphones rather than the MP3 player causing this problem. Try another set of headphones on the MP3 player & see if that fixes the problem. If not then you know the problem is with the MP3 player.

The Marv is right about these being delicate. My little MP3 player's headphone jack developed a bad connection where it was soldered to its tiny little internal circuit board. If you're good at soldering and have great hand-eye coordination, then you might give it a try. Remove the battery from the player, first. Carefully disassemble the unit, check out the connections, and solder away. Be careful not to get solder across points that shouldn't be connected. You have little to lose, if the player is frustrating you to the point where you are about to chuck it in the trash, anyway.

It's a well known issue with the Rio Carbon... caused due to shortcuit in the plug connector... several fixes: 1. attach electric tape with a hole on top of the jack 2. get a special adapter from the manufacturer 3. don't push the headphones plug all the way in (requires very precise insertion and might not play in stereo)

Sometimes after headphones have been used so much that the wires have been bent and moved around a lot for many months/years, they can break inside the tube holding the wires together. One of the wires may have broken and that could be what's causing it to lose audio as soon as it's bumped. If it's resting a certain way that may connect the wire and when moved, it separates again.

Although headphones jacks are convient. They are very delicate as well. It take very little pressure agaist the jack when plugged in to bend the pins inside the jack that makes the connection. Then they get temermental. Generally the only recourse is to replace the headphonejack in the unit. better left to the techs. replacing can be tricky. But just to make sure you say you have tried other units. Here is something that works once in a great while. Unplug the unit dip the headphone jack {the tip on the headphones} in rubbing alchol insert it in the jack on the unit and spin it repeat several times let alchol evaporate then stick jack back in unit an spin again. Plug unit back in and see if it is better or the same.

Whenever I plug in my headphones, only the external speaker plays. How do I fix it?


Like 99% of the Visual Land products, the reset button usually fixes these issues. Try that, if not make sure the head phones are fix right with the player. If you have to force the headphone jack into the player of if it is loose, that could cause the player to believe there is no headphones pluged in. The V-Touch as a slandered, 3.5 mm headphone jack (most headphones are 3.5 mm) If you still have issues, you will have to format the player, doing so will erase ALL data that you have put on the player restoring to factory settings.

Most Dell computers have special hardware and software that are set up to automatically adjust the configuration of the headphone ports when headphones are connected, muting the primary speakers in the process. If no sound is coming out of your headphones, this is most likely caused by a configuration issue that can be resolved with a few simple steps.

Basic Headphone Troubleshooting
If no sound is coming from your headphones, confirm that the headphones work properly by using them with a different device. After this, confirm that the headphones are plugged into the proper jack. If your CD/DVD drive has a headphone jack in front, audio will only be played through this jack when you are playing a disc. On a desktop computer, the correct jack to use for headphones is usually color-coded green, while notebook computers will have headphone icons next to the correct jacks. Finally, check the speaker icon in the system tray to make sure that your sound output is not muted. b> Troubleshooting Notebooks b> Most Dell notebooks use a special type of audio jack. The jack, along with the sound drivers that are installed, automatically detect whether headphones or speakers are plugged in and adjust the sound output accordingly. If this does not happen when headphones are plugged in, the sound drivers may be at fault. Visit the Dell support website and download the most recent sound drivers for your notebook. If this does not help, some users have reported success with removing the sound drivers completely and letting Windows install generic drivers automatically. Last Resort b> If all other options have been exhausted, the last resort in troubleshooting a headphone jack is running a complete system recovery operation. This will completely erase all of the information on your primary hard drive partition and reinstall Windows along with the drivers for all of your hardware. This is an extreme measure, as you will lose all of the information that you have stored on the hard drive. However, it will resolve the issue if it is caused by a software problem. If the issue remains, the headphone jack must be replaced. Hope this helps.

Headphone out jack is really quiet.


Hi,

If you're trying to plug the speakers into the headphone connector that will happen.
Headphones are having a high impedance and those loudspeakers a low impedance.
That's why your volume is down. It stresses your audio-amplifier and even blow your finals.

Cheers,
Gerard

My headphone jack has one spot it works. If I bump it, i get no sound. I have to pull it out a little. Replacing the plug in costs $35.00 just for shipping. Do I have any other options?


This is the only right answer i can give you - no. A common problem with all brands of mp3 players is the "sound only comes out of one headphone" issue. Requires replacing the jack or the whole player. Sorry.

Ipod and headphone problem


The headphone jack on all the apple products have issues (even their laptops). There is no easy fix, other than having the jack replaced, or remounted. A common issue is that it comes loose from the pc board, especially with the movement of the headphone cord. This is a design/functionality flaw.

Hope this helps some.
