My nakamichi over the ear headphones don't work. only the right side works, and the part where the cord attachs to the headphones are slidy.

The part where the cord goes into the phones has that little metal part, and mine slides in and out which may be the source of the problem

SOURCE: No sound in right ear

Check for a loose connection in the wire. Wiggle (carefully) the wire around both the headset where it sits on your heat. Also, check the other end (plug) to see if there are any shorts. If this simple "wiggle" test shows nothing, there may be a problem with the driver (speaker) in the right channel in your headphone.

Another thing to check and this should be obvious: make sure your balance on your stereo/receiver is set to be in the middle and not to the left.

M886 won't charge battery. replaced battery still no charge. charger is good.

Hi Jane, I'm Peter. I have had the same problem and discovered that on certain phones the port where you plug the charger cord into may have a little finger of metal that has been bent down some so it can't connect the charger connector . On mine I had to remove the back of my phone to get a little better view then got a toothpick ( don't use any metal ) and gently pried the metal finger back straight so it could slide properly into position to charge. I hope this helps .

Over head mic came out of slot

Hello, Naz.

The same thing happened to mime.

There is a plastic notch that prevents the metal arc piece (which slides into the plastic housing to adjust the length of the head rest end) that probably broke.

What I did to fix mine is to get a little zip tight used to wrap cables together and used it near the end of the plastic housing to hold the metal piece. You should tie is as hard as you can (BUT WITH THE META PLACED INSERTED - other wise you can break the plastic housing), and cut the strip with a scissor or cutter plier. In fact, in mine, I can even slide and adjust the metal band as I wish and resume normal operation of the headset without any problems.

I hope it will help your.

How do you remove your sim card from the 6700 slide to replace with new?

I don't have this particular phone, but generally the sim card in under the battery. Before you start, make sure you have all your contacts and stuff stored on the phone, not the sim, or it all goes bye-bye when you change the sim. Snap off the back of the phone. Don't pry the battery out. Usually you have to look for 2 tiny little "latches" that hold it in. Sometimes there is a lever that you push to release the battery. Then you can see the sim card. Sometimes you release a little metal clip that holds it down. On other phones, you just slide the card out from under the metal holder. Pay attention to which way the card is turned, and don't put the new one in upside down. Then reassemble the phone.

Boss oethe left side of my headphone is stop working


The most common cause for this, is a loose wire connection to that speaker (as opposed to the speaker being faulty).

Has anyone pulled the cord too tight or tripped on the cord? If yes, then the internal wire connecting that speaker has an internal break somewhere.

Try the following:

1) Plug headphones into music device and turn on.
2) Gently press the wire 'in' at the left earpiece (or wiggle at the earpiece end). If sound returns intermittently, then you have n internal wire break in that end of the cord.
3) Gently press the wire 'in' at the plug where it connects to your player (or wiggle the cord at the plug end). If sound returns, then there is an internal wire break at this end of the cord.

In the case of broken internal wires, it is possible to repair.

Although very fragile, it is possible to resolder these tiny wires (you'll have to burn off the enamel coating around these wires first) back onto their respective connections, or onto a new plug.

Good luck....

Where the power cord goes through the metal casing, there is a plastic thing that protects the cord. I can't get the power cord to slide through nor can I seem to get that plastic thing to release or...

That plastic thing is the cord retainer. The cord will not pull out or push in until the strain relief is pulled out. A needle nose or channel lock pliers should be used. Squeeze the strain relief as close to the housing as possible and pull it out. You can then slide the cord further into the strain relief and replace it in same fashion.

I think this is common problem for headphones. To fix it you will have to solder cord's wires back to plug. If you have tools and some experience you'll be fine

Ayish DX,

If you just want to get rid of the remote control functionality, you could simply replace the cord for your headphones. This may be a little difficult to do, but it is possible. Do keep in mind though that you have purchased a Bose product, and unless they have changed lately, they provide a lifetime warranty on almost all of their products. you may be able to send off for a replacement pair! if this is the case, don't make any modifications at all, as you will void the warranty.
