The player should be replaced - the headphone jack or the headphone controller on the circuit are damaged, and these are nt orderable parts.

Can only hear from 1 side of earplugs on my electro brand mp3

three possible scenarios, either the balance ( left/right) setting of menu are set to favor right vs. left. the earbud cable is not seated properly or defective sometimes the earphone jack itself on MP3 is not making contact, or broken speaker inside earplug

How do I fix skullcandy earphones? I think a wire is lose because the sound comes in and out when you move the earphone. How do you open the earphones up to fix the wires? Thank you for you time

I'm sorry to bring you bad news, but the most likely thing is that the copper conductor has become fractured inside the wire. The best you can do is to carefully identify which end of the wire has become broken (it usually happens at an end, where it goes in to an earbud, or a plug) and cut it back to the break, and then pry open the bud, cut back the insulation and re-solder the conductors. This is a pretty involved process, and to be honest, even with all the tools, I wouldn't attempt this. Oh, and plugs are usually moulded, so you can't do it, but if you try to buy a new plug in a store it will cost almost as much as new earbuds.

My earphone plug in for my sylvania SMPK8858 isn't working properly. The sound through the headphones isnt correct.

I have the same problem. I had to tape the earbud connector tightly to my player.

Now my player won't even turn on!!

No earphones sound OK, with earphones no sound

the connector may have come loose from the player board, you could try opening it and replacing/resoldering the port, but it would be best if you just sent it back for repair.

No sound from one side of earphone.

The headphone jack module needs to be replaced you can try to do it yourself if you're tech savy, There are specialized online tutorials with iPod Repair instructions that will guide you through the steps of taking it otherwise you'll have to send it to any third party iPod repair service and they'll do it for you.

That has happened to me before, what happened was where you input the earphone jack was broken, no matter how many different headphones i tried none worked. Now I understand this doesn't help, but it might save a lot of time.
Although one short short term thing i did find out though, is that if you push the headphone jack to the side, sometimes you will receive a little sound.

Sound to one earphone only unless pressure applied.

try taking a cue tip or something smaller and cleaning out the inside of the earphone port, sometimes dust can cause interference with the headphones

Need replacement earphones

Any earphones should work but try not to buy too cheap as they won't sound good. ~$40 is probably the starting price I would pay for earbuds.

No sound

Are you sure it isn't just your earphones, try some other earphones if they don't work as well, your best bet is to send the mp3 player back because this sounds to me like a component failure.

On the safe side just send it back because if you try to manually open it up and do anything you could do more damage to it than there orignally was.

Good luck, hope my solutions helpful.
