Try another headset to be sure its a problem of the player and not broken headphones. if its the player i hope its still under warranty, else you need to open it whats wrong. hot air soldering machine is an advantage..

    there can be 3 things wrong with the connector inside the mp3 player.

    1. the conector itself is broken
    2. the conectors contact to the main board is loose but the small metalic contact on mainboard itself is still intact.
    3. the connectors contact to the conectors contact to the main board is loose because the small metalic contact was ripped out of the main board (worst case)

    solution:
    1. replace the conector with a hot air soldering machine. using a classic soldering machine could damage the mainboard.

    2. just resolder the contact

    3. i did not find a posibility to fix the 0,5mm contact square on mainboard, but it was possible to me to find a workaround, by connecting a cable to the loose connector foot to an other working contact on the mainboard. during this i did start the open player and listened to music while pressing the other and of the cable to random contacts on the board.

    the said news is, once 1 of the 3 connectors contacts are loose its more likely that the same will happen to them.

    bonus solution for all 3 problems: take some rubber or matches piece place it above the connector and close the whole thing so that it pushes on the connector :)

I think I have broken my headphone jack on my sony unless held at a certain angle for speaker too


Lean a book on the earphone plug to keep it in the right position. Or, pay a computer repair shop to replace the socket.

Earphone jack on my compaq presario c700 stopped working. How do I fix it?


You will need professional help on this, the laptop must be dismantled down to the motherboard level to access the problem. The earphone jack may have to be replaced and requires a high degree of solder skills to remedy the situation.

New Bounty Hunter Discovery 3300 Metal Detector No external sound


Most earphone jacks have two functions. One, to provide signal to a set of earphones or headphones. Two, to DISCONNECT the path that would be amplified and sent to loudspeakers. If that particular contact on the jack is bent or broken, when you UNPLUG the male jack, the connection is NOT re-established!

Only one earphone works, weird problem


there is a broken solder joint where it is on the pc board.it is not the earbud itself,because when you pull it out,both sides work.the jack has 3 sections,the tip which is one side,the next piece,which is the other side,and the shank piece which is the ground.the ground connects to the outside ring of the headphone jack.there are 2 contact points inside for the two channels.what happens is the copper foil of the pc board fractures where the pins are soldered.scrape away some of the foil so that copper is exposed for the pins,and resolder it and it will work if you wiggle the jack,you will see the whole piece of circuit board move where it is cracked.after fixing it,put epoxy over the area to make it stronger.

Low and bad quality sound by headphone port


sounds like an internal problem
like a bad connection
if you have the skill, you could pull it apart and resolder the parts around the earphone output jack
hope this helps!

Speaker problem


you wont, it will sense off of the jack as to which output method to use. If the jack is bad and the device cannot communicate with it, it will remain in its current state.

The earplug/headset input on my Garmin Nuvi 660 is broken.


Interesting problem but I have repaired this problem before. This is not going to be something you can fix yourself.....believe me... I have 30 years of experience in Electronics.

The headphone jack either has to be resoldered or replaced. When its loose, in most cases the pins of the jack are broken and/or the printed circuit board tracks have been torn off the board. The jack is a surface mount part.

A new jack must be installed but there is no way to solder in a new jack because the printed circuit board tracks are gone. The new jack must be installed with epoxy to the board and new wires have to be soldered from the printed circuit board to the jack.

There's around 2 hrs worth of work involved in this repair.

IHP-120


have you tried playing it in ole iriver style (not rockbox). to see if you really did delete something. and if so go to www.iriver.com and download the the last firmware you had to rebuild. and hopefully you can come back to rockbox latest version also. its just a very late suggestion. oh yeah one more do you know of any one who has a 120 as yours (you can copy theirs software, but you will have to format yours in order for it to work correctly)

Help with sansa e250


Call Sandisk and tell them about your problem. I had the same exact problem. The headphone jack inside is loose. Talk to Sandisk and don't worry about the box, the customer is always right. But after they send you a new sansa e250, sell it on ebay and buy a durable mp3 player like the iriver t10 series. My old iriver dropped on the floor plenty of times and it's still working after 3 years.
