Question about Sony Ericsson W550i Cellular Phone
I might have messed up the connector on the phone by buying a cheap converter that plugs into the connector and provides a normal 3.5mm audio jack. The plastic on the converter was stiffer than the stuff on sony brand products like the usb cable or the charger cable. The converter didn't want to go in unless I put a good deal of pressure on it. Now, both the sony connectors and the cheap converters don't connect firmly to the phone, so when I try to play audio, it either doesn't play at all or I only get one side but not the other. I can't tell if the loose connection is at the point of the contacts or if it is between the connector and some internal phone parts. The connector on the phone seems to move a little bit when I plug stuff in.
Sounds like you have loosened up the plug on the phone with your audio converter. If it's still under warranty, use it! Don't mention you have used a cheap connector, afterall you're not 100% sure that was the real cause. If that's not an option, then you can make all your plug legs slightly wider so they'll hook into the phone better. Try use a hairdryer to slightly soften up the tips of the plugs that go into the phone, make sure you don't heat it up too much or it'll deform. Then gently press the tips straight down on a table and very slightly widen the tips. When the tips are wider, they should hook onto the phone better. Good luck!
