Question about Philips PSA232 (512 MB) MP3 Player
Sounds like the ground connection (-ve) to the earphone socket is broken.
When you plug in the earphones, they ground through the control section on the board. Poor sound is another sympton of this problem.
If you have any soldering experience, dismantle the player, and re-solder the 4 connections to the headphone socket.
