Re: head phone jack messed up???

I had the same problem, the fix...
Remove 4 screws on the back case. Remove the battery. Remove 4 more screws holding the circuit board cover. Pry out the circuit board. A black rectangular box may fall out, that's the jack receptacle.

I soldered a small ball of solder on the only tab sticking out of the jack receptacle, I then folded a post-it-note into 4's then cut it to fit on the back of the housing (to force the housing to fit tighter against the circuit board) then reassemble...

Good luck, Brian W

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.

My headphones wont work everthing else is fine

Hi There,                The input for the head phone is a 32 ohm input. You need to get the proper 32ohm headphone for it. It seems that you tryed others but there are 16 ohms and 32ohms headphones. But if they do not work then it is your input connection or the device if your headphones work on other devices.You should bring the product back as a faulty device to the store and exchange it with your reciept then.  For the headphone that works on one side it can be the headphone jack that does not fit properly into the hole input (female jack).The one side does not touch or connect for it to work. It happens to cheap headphones and some good ones too. The male jacks on the headphones are slightly off it specification size by a small amount that it is not noticed by the naked eye, so it does not get a good connection.Try another head phone if you haven't tryed that

You need to get a new head phone jack installed. It should be free if it is still under warranty.

IRiver headphone jack

By the sound of it, I think your headphone jack might be damaged by "tear and wear". In that case, there's little you can do aside getting it serviced. If its warranty is void or expired already, you MIGHT be able to repair it yourself, if you're handy with soldering iron (and, possibly a hot glue gun). However, that would require quite a precision work, patience and vigilance 'cause you could easily damage other electrical components, either by physical means or by burning them out with excess heat... if you're willing to risk it, that is.

To sum it up: you do need to service it.
