Re: my headphone jack may be messed up

If your 1 year warrenty is still in effect I suggest taking it back for hardware malfunction, otherwise you can take it to best buy or some place they can do repairs on it :)

Hey i have an rca th1702-a and the audio wont work unless ihold the headphone jack just right, and even then only through one earphone. i've tried different headphones, and it doesnt seem to be damaged....

The headphone has come un soldered and it is not making a contact with the motherboard .... I have this player. It did the same thing. I took it apart and found this to be the reason for mine not working. I do not have a soldering gun or else I would re solder it back to the motherboard. I would suggest asking if anyone you know would be willing to solder it back for you.

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.

Sound out of one speaker only

I think it's probably a damaged audio jack. If you're still in warranty, get it off to Apple. If not, you've got 3 choices;

1. Attempt to fix it yourself. I managed to get stereo again by opening the ipod up and inserting a staple in the bottom of the jack, to fit between the headphone and the ipod's audio input. This took some fiddling around, using tweezers, and will probably not last long if I take it out somewhere. I might attempt removing the audio jack and seeing if I can bend the metal connects for the right audio channel so they touch the headphone cable again. An alternative to this method would be to put some cardboard in the audio jack socket and adjusting it so that it brings the hardphones back into contact. Someone did this and posted the results on their blog, but I forgot the URL...

2. Buy a new audio jack and replace it yourself. There's an ipod repair wiki out there, and several of the replacement jack suppliers have detailed instructions. It's about 40 UK pounds for the replacement though....

3. Get someone to repair it. Expensive, about 60 quid, but perhaps worth it if you're scared of further damaging your precious beast.

Note though that there have also been issues with software updates and audio output, search the apple discussion boards for more details...

There is a reason for the headphone jack being loose. You either repeatedly plug and unplug your headphones, or the headphone's wire is to big. Nothing else to say, sorry!

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.
