Re: Right speaker has a shorrt

Access screws on headphones are sometimes under the ear padding, or maybe on the opposite side under a sticker or label. Sometimes the wire will have come loose from the internal speaker, or it could be the external cable has been abused enough that the copper strands inside have separated.

It sounds like the right side speaker is loose. You could try to take it apart and re-glue it.

My scala rider G4 set has lost hearing in one of the headsets. Where is an authorized rapair shop?

Cardo had a problem in the firmware of the early models that caused the auto adjust on the volume to overload the speakers. Not knowing how old your unit is I have no way of knowing if this is the problem. If you still have the units you can buy new audio bases. I also have a source for replacement batteries.

Change battery on a motorola bluetooth H700

Turn off the unit before attempting a battery replacement. Without doing so, the power disruption that the headset will acquire can damage the internal workings.
  • Find the even **** on the bottom side of the unit, where the microphone boom is attached.
  • Place the edge of a flathead screwdriver along these slits, and twist gently back and forth until the unit opens up. Do not completely open the unit up, however.
  • Find the small ring near the plug and the mini-USB port. Use the screwdriver to push under the ring where the battery is found. Push forward gently to pop the battery out.

    Logitech 350 Headset Casing

    Had the same problem, no headphone speakers would work.
    First use a flat head screwdriver and insert in between leather padding
    and plastic case and pry apart. Best to start at one area, insert a wedge
    and pry further along. It will take a bit of force before it pops apart.
    Take out 4 small philips screws
    I found that the wire had broke right at the entry grommet. I pulled the
    wire through and wiggled it and the speakers went on and off.
    In my case I felt it was best to redo all the wiring. I first took these pictures
    to have a map and pulled through an extra 4" of wire through and cut/desoldered
    the wires.
    Here are the original wiring connections at the speaker
    4017e98.jpg and what must be the common. This was the wire that was broken
    I re-soldered all the connections and separated them as best I could with
    electrical tape (no shrink). Put everything back together and so far
    seems to work fine.

    How to take apart

    I figured out how to remove the headphone clip without causing cosmetic damage to the headphone casing. Unfortunately for me, this was after I had scratched up the casing already. Anyway, to avoid the cosmetic damage, use some kind of plastic tool, like a plastic spoon. After pulling off the headphone cushion, you will see the aforementioned 4 slots. Carefully slip the handle end of the spoon underneath one of the slots(not through them), and apply gentle pressure toward the center of the speaker. Do this for each of the 4 slots, and the tabs should easily come loose. Hope that helps.As for figuring out how to get the headphone to work, I'm waiting for that solution myself. The right headphone is out, but the left one works, none of the wires are loose, so the damage must be from my nephew being careless with the headset cable, and probably tugging on it once too often. Don't let your 15 year olds use your headsets, if they tend to be clumsy :)

    Can't hear sound on one of the headphone's speaker

    It's less common for one of the speakers to go bad in a set of headphones. It's possible - but there are more common problems that will cause this. I assume you have tried the headphones on another device to rule our a problem with the device you are currently listening with and using the other device, you still only hear audio from the left speaker.

    The wires in the cord that connect the plug to the headphones are very thin and are susceptible to breaking. The most commmon place for these wires to break is at the point where the cord is flexed or stressed the most. Those points are:

    1. Right at the plug
    2. Where the wire enters into the left and right speaker.

    There are occasions where I have seen the wires become unsoldered from the speaker terminals within the headphones themself.

    What You Can Do:

    1. While listening with the headphones, try flexing the cord back & forth at the plug and where the wire goes into the right speaker. See if the audio will come back and cut out again.

    2. What I have done is cut the cord about 3" back from the plug. Go to Radio Shack and purchase a new plug and install a new plug on the cord.

    3. You can also take the headphones apart and cut a few inches off the cord where it connects to the right speaker and reconnect the new end of the wire to the right speaker. The goal is to cut away the bad part of the cord and re-attach the good part back.

    4. You can try to replace the entire cord but I haven't been able to find replacement (THIN) cords too easily.

    Good Luck,

    - Jim

    Only one speaker on hte headset is working

    Even I have encountered the same problem with Logitech headset.Also my microphone is not working at all.

    I thing I noticed that when I tilt the cable connected at the end of microphone towards the other direction both the speakers work as I hold the cable in that position.But when I release the cable only one of them works.
