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.

Every single o ne of my headphones one side is not working. i tried many electronics


  • If you have several different head pones that completely work on other players but only partially work on that MP3 player then it is pretty clear you have a cold soldier joint where the input jack for the ear buds connects to the circuit board. I see it all the times. The jack plug for the MP3 player gets bumped bumped bumped and pretty soon this happens.

  • Easy fix though. Just pull the back of the MP3 player off. You will see the jack input. Take a soldier gun and heat it up and just barely melt all soldier points (3 or 4 points is all) where the input connects to the board. This should fix your problem. I've had this happen to every one of my sons MP3 players.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Four weeks ago I bought an iPod Touch 32GB. After listening to my iPod on an external speaker I tried using the headphone and the sound is just too low. I thought my headphone was damaged but I tried it on...


Sounds like plugging the external speakers in has damage the spot were the headphones go in. If this is under warranty that bring it to apple store.

The earplug jack on my Creative Zen Touch (20G) does not work without constantly messing with the plug to find just the right spot then when you let go it messes up again.


Hi it sounds the solder connection on the board has a dry joint, or worse still, broken internals in the jack plug.
The only way to find out is open the player and take a look.

Headphone jack does not make a good connection


I have a couple of these players and have found that some headphones do this and some do not, maybe try a different pair and see if they fit any better, if the player is new you could think about returning it.

NO sound comes out of the headphone jack or the bottom plug in


All you need is a new headphone jack as yours may be messed up, or it may need to be checked as the cord may have came loose and just needs to be reconnected. They are pretty cheap to replace so it will not cost alot to fix.

RCA OpAL MP3 player


My son had a similar issue with his. It turned out that he had damaged the headphone/charger/download/upload jack. There was no way to easily fix it, but we were able to return it to Wal-mart for another one. Why they decided to use this jack for so many different functions, I have yet to figure out. It's really a poor design for an otherwise nice mp3 player. If you can't take it back where you bought it, you are pretty much out of luck, unless you're handy enough to take the player apart and replace the jack. Sorry.

Problems with Headphone and USB plugs


I share the same problem - I'm worried it's due to routine wear-and-tear on the jacks, so the connections are no longer solid. I hate to think I need to get it serviced for this. Usually buying a new cable has worked, but that gets expensive too... Anyone have a fix??

Headphone jack issues


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.
