Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players
Try another pair of headphones first to determine if the trouble is the phones or in the player. The wires in the headphone cable are very thin, and flexing at the plug often makes them break inside.
If the problem is in the player, it's usually due to solder connections breaking where the jack joins the circuit board. These connections might be repairable. If you can open the player in the first place (the case on many brands is either glued together or the halves are held together with plastic tabs that are nearly impossible to open without breaking the case), and if the jack has a style of solder tab you can reach with a normal iron (many use a type that requires special soldering equipment), you might be able to resolder the connections. These things were never intended to be repaired, even by the manufacturers. Under warranty they just replace the unit at their expense. Out of warranty, you do.
