Re: Headphone problems

Your headphone jack might just be worn out. there are little pins inside headphone jacks that make contact with you headphone plug and sometimes they get so bent out of shape that they no longer connect with the headphones hence- no sound. this is for advanced users only (if you are not very technology savvy or just clumsy maybe you have a friend who can do this for you) you can crack open the mp3 player CAREFULLY with a thin flathead screwdriver (this most certainly violates warranty by the way) and bend the pins back into position with a small tool. there are three of them and try not to bend them too far or they will break and your headphones will never work so

Re: Headphone problems

Sometimes when overplugging the headphones people tend to loosen what holds it in place i suggest you insert the headphones about halfway and rotate them when and if you hear sound completely insert them but be patient

My left headphone of my ipod is not working anymore what can i do to fix this ?

The headphone may be faulty and not the IPod. Connect a different headphone to the IPod to check if the left headphone is still faulty. If the left headphone is still faulty then the IPod headphone is probably faulty and needs to be repaired.

No music playing in headphones

Try to adjust the headphone.
Check if it is connected properly.
If it still doesn't work, try to check the headphone on other devices.
If the headphone is working on other devices, your MP3 headphone jack has some problem.
But if the headphone is not working on other devices, you should get new headphone or you can try other headphone (besides your current one) on your MP3.

hope it helps.

Broken Headphone Jack

Replacing it is expensive. However the player is bound to have some sort of usb port on it. You can buy some usb headphones for about £15 and use those.

I'd say something is wrong with your headphone jack on the ipod. I would contact the apple helpline and make them help you.

Loss of stereo mode

First I would try a different set of headphones/earbuds to make sure they're working properly.

If all the headphones you try have the same issue, the headphone jack is damaged. Bring it back to Best Buy. The contacts are too small to fix and are connecting incorrectly.

My iriver headphone jack gives distorted or no sound at all sometimes. after jiggling the phones it seems to work but it soon moves again when i move everything else works well

Have you tried using different headphones? If they work, then the headphones you currently have may have some faulty wiring. If different headphones do not work, then there may be something wrong with the headphone port on the iriver.
If there is a problem with the headphones, the best solution would just be to buy new ones. It is much less of a hassle and much less costly. If there is a problem with the iriver's port, it would be best to take it to an electronics store and have them find out exactly what is wrong.

Cannot hear music

The bad news is that your headphone jack is most likely shot. The soldered connections inside are most likely broken. This is not repairable generally, at least not for a cost that would be reasonable. Music will play through your computer because it can be read off your player through the USB connection. Use it as a data storage drive and buy a new one, or a used one. I've seen used T30s on Amazon for around $30 to $40.
