I don't know about getting to the headphone jack but there is a little screw underneath the flap which covers the USB port and the power plug. Try unscrewing that and having a look. Tim

Re: NW-HD5 MP3 Player

I can't remember - it was such a long time ago. Here's how I got mine open: Open up the battery compartment bit and take out the battery. The little door that holds the battery in is made of two parts, a plastic bit and a metal bit. Carefully, pull off the piece of metal (don't worry, the plastic shouldn't break - I've opened mine up a fair few of times and it never has). Once you've got that off, you need to unscrew the bottom two screws and then you should be able to take the case off. If you look at the bottom of the player on the side you put the battery in, you should see a piece of metal poking out from underneath the main casing. You can use this to push the insides of the player out of the case. It will move a bit but then stop, this is because of the little thing for attaching a strap is in the way (on the opposite corner). You need to take this out and then continue pushing the insides out. There will be a small flat cable connecting the buttons to the insides of the player, if you open the little flap holding the cable in place, then you can disconnect it and take the insides all the way out. I hope this is clear enough Tim

Open up the player and look at the headphone jack, there may be a loose conneciton that needs to be re-soldered in or the jack itself is faulty and will need to be replaced. You may be able to get one from

Head phone jack only plays right side/brad new headphones

Call Philips, get replaced - this is a common problem across all mp3 manufacturers. You can look at the YouTube video on repairing mp3 player headphone jacks, but i doubt it will work without causing more problems with your mp3 player.

Sounds like a sound issue. i would send it back to SONY and demand that they either, give you a full written explanation of how to fix, or fix it themselves. (they wouldn't be bothered to write it out...)
