Question about Sony MDR-7506 Professional Headphones
All of a sudden no sound whatsoever from the right side. Took the covers off both sides and the wiring looks sound. Tried wiggling the input (the gold stereo input to my laptop) to no avail. Tried wiggling other wires too. Any ideas? Could my right side speaker (driver?) be blown? Or maybe the input is damaged?
It sounds like the pin cracked. If this is the case, you'll need to soldier a new jack on it. Here's how, assuming you already know how to soldier a new 1/8" TRS phono plug.
Cut and strip the cord. There should be two copper wires and (on Sony headphones, at least) a red and a green strand. On a new 1/8" jack, there should be three connections. The middle one is left, and is where the green one goes. The short one on the side is right, and is where the red one goes. The long bit is the common, and is where the copper one goes. Before you solder, however, remember which strand is which, because you have to sand or burn off the colored enamel. (Use a fine grain paper, or use a standard lighter or stick match- anything else might damage or melt the wire)
