The receiver for my headphones in my 8GB Zune doesn't work
So the receiver in the zune doesn't work. I tried some suggestions from people that had the same problem and it worked for a while. But now the left headphone doesn't work at all. Part of the receiver broke off a little bit when i put my headphones back in...so i dont know what i should do or what to buy to fix it, but if someone could help that would be awesome.

How to update your Zune player
If you haven't used your Zune player in a while, you might need to update it in order to get the latest features and improvements.
Steps to update
On your computer, start the Zune software.
Connect your Zune player to your computer by using the USB cable that was included with your player.
If a newer version of the Zune firmware is available, you'll see a notice to update your player.
You can also manually check for new player updates in the Zune software. Go to Settings (located at the top of the screen), Device (located in the upper-left corner), and then Update (located in the list at the left).
If you receive a notice to update your player, follow the on-screen instructions.
Important During the update process, don't disconnect your Zune player it until the update finishes. The update might take several minutes. During this time, your Zune player might restart several times.
If it doesn't connect, I suggest uninstalling and reinstalling the Zune software. Try to use a different USB port you haven't used before, so Vista will reinstall the USB drivers for the specific port. If that doesn't work, with the Zune in, go to Device Manager and uninstall and reinstall the drivers that are installed for in the DM.
Secondly, Here are just a few different suggestions. 1) Make sure its not muted on your zune 2) Some headphones have a volume switch on them so if yours have that switch, turn them up. 3) Try a different pair of headphones.
I had a similar problem with my 30GB Zune. The first normal solution is to make sure that the USB port is providing enough power to the Zune to charge it by trying a different port or computer, but since your other Zune charges it is likely not the problem.
Other possibly solutions are performing a hard reset on the Zune (hold back and up until it resets), or allowing the zone to completely discharge and try again. In my case, none of these solutions worked and I was forced to send my Zune in for a new battery, which Microsoft was willing to replace for free.
the set needs to be oped and have switches checked, one of the switch is holding down a connection of power.
also check the reguration of that set,
pause switch is cascaded in series with the many switch.
plse try that
Once you have the cable, you stick the headphone plug (3.5 mm stereo mini-phono) into the headphone jack on your Zune, then you insert the red and white RCA jacks into an open input on your surround receiver... most have an auxilliary input jack set on the front of the unit. All you need to do at this point is select the "aux input" for the source on the surround receiver, start your Zune, and make sure the volume on the Zune is somewhere in the 50 - 75% range, and you should be good to go.
The problem you're encountering may not necessarily be a loose internal connection, and may instead be a defective headphone jack. In cases when headphones are unable to make a secure connection, users may only experience sound coming from one of their headphone's speakers, a static-filled signal or no sound at all.
While there may be some third-party parts suppliers that carry replacement components you can install on your own, I'd strongly suggest contacting either the toll-free Zune support hotline or your local repair facility for further assistance. Any repairs that are not performed by a factory-authorized technician may void any warranty coverage you still have on your Zune.
If you're not sure how to contact Microsoft, you should be able to reach their technical support by calling 1-877-GET-ZUNE (877-438-3269). Additionally, if you're not quite sure where your local repair facility is, you may always bring your product into the Geek Squad® counter at your local Best Buy™ store for service and support.
