Re: I can only hear out of one headphone i ve bought new...

Hate to tell you this, but most likely the headphone jack on your player is broken. It happens alot. If it's under warranty return it to the store. I don't believe the jack is user replaceable on this player. Try inserting the headphone jack only partway and see if you get both sides. Your cheapest solution if it's out of warranty may be to just insert the jack to the point at which you get both sides to work. It's a crappy solution, but it's probably your only hope. It's not a software problem or anything that can be fixed without tearing the player apart. Sorry for the bad news....

Left ear bud won't work

ensure the headphone jack is plugged into the media player completely and that there isn't anything in the jack keeping it from plugging in all the way or getting a good connection. try another set of headphones and see if it is the headphones or the media player device. if it is the headphones mostly they are not serviceable and have to be replaced with a new set. if you just bought them u might be able to take them to where u bought them and exchange for a new set. or contact the manufacturer (altec) to see if they will warranty them out for a new set.

I have bought several pairs of headphones for my gogear but they all sound like there is a problem with the connection only getting sound through one ear sometimes

The headphone socket in the GoGear is faulty. If you can hear sounds from both ear pieces when you wriggle the headphone plug in the GoGear, then the headphone socket in the GoGear is faulty. This fault can be easily fixed by removing the circuit board in the GoGear and resoldering the headphone socket to the circuit. You need a very fine tipped temperature soldering iron to do this job.

I have to wiggle the earbud plug to hear from both sided

Try new headphones or it may be the input has been corrupted or broken. This could also be a cause of water damage. Try different headphones (new) nd if that doesnt work i advise you to contact the brand company or where you bought it and see if it is repairable and if it is covered under warranty.

Hope this helps ^^. Please dont forget to rate, Thanks

My ipod

Yes, if you changed headphones and it is still happening, it's almost surely a problem with your iPod's jack. I think the warranty is 1 year only, so you should get it repaired asap.

Can't hear anything from my speakers....

The headphone jack is defective - get a refund if you still can, or find out from jWin if it is still in warranty (doubtful). A replacement headphone jack is not an orderable part.

Cant hear songs

It sounds like your headphone/hold cable is faulty. Try plugging it into a sound device with a docking bay. If no sound comes out of there either then it's a faulty logic board.

Hello rd34227,

If the headphones are defective, you should be able to purchase replacement headphones at the store where you bought the iPod.

Depending on when you bought the item the unit may still be under manufacturer's warranty. If that is the case you should give Apple a call at 1-800-275-2273 and they can advise you whether the headphones would be covered and how to get a replacement.

Best Regards,
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Headphones not playing in iPod

This is either cause by a damaged headphone socket in the iPod or a loose connection. The only way to solve it will involve opening the iPod case and inspecting the daughter board that the headphone socket is on.

Cannot hear music

The bad news is that your headphone jack is most likely shot. The soldered connections inside are most likely broken. This is not repairable generally, at least not for a cost that would be reasonable. Music will play through your computer because it can be read off your player through the USB connection. Use it as a data storage drive and buy a new one, or a used one. I've seen used T30s on Amazon for around $30 to $40.
