Re: Dell DJ 30 head phone jack has a bad conection.
Yeah i just fixed mine. Take out the black plastic on both ends. 4 tiny screws underneath, then 2 small metal ends. You will see the board on both ends.
Take out the battery fron the botton. Then TAKE OUT THE SCROLL BUTTON. After that you take out the board. Looking at the headphone jack, you will see 3 small metal connectors inside the jack. try to bend them a lil towards the inside of the connector. I actually put a very tiny piece of metal between the metal and the black plastic in order to force them out.
I was able to fix it, but in the process i broke the scroll button. If you decide to not fix yours and you want to give me the broken dell dj, let me know, i could use the parts.
Re: Dell DJ 30 head phone jack has a bad conection.
I had that problem on my dell dj. I took the screws out of the back plate, carefully! Then used a qtip and spot cleaned around it. Then I used the air spray and in light quick spurts, got the dust out. Put the plate back on. Doing this upside down, I got a small wire brush and spun it around where the contacts of the headphones and port are, and tap it so any dust comes out from the bottom. It worked for me.
Another problem might be the actual song. Sometimes the song is grainy. The higher the kbps the better. Kbps is kilobit per second. I like my songs in the 190s. Better sound. If the song is say, 32 kbps, it'll sound like ****. To me anyways. I like higher kbps. Bigger file but better.

use a mini adapter to a large one.(3.5 to 1/4) or mini headphone jack to 1/4 headphone jack.plug a male3.5 into your outgoing headphone jack or from the pc convert the other end of that cord to get you to the proper size or 1/4 head phone jack.the primary cord from the pc needs to be a male to female cord.they make adapters that will get you the rest of the way.3.5 mini male to 1/4 phono female.then you plug your amp in to the 1/4 female.wala
The problem is in the earphone jack, when you plug headphones into the jack it dis-connects the internal speaker. Since you can hear the sound through the head gear, it indicates the jack is defective and needs to be replaced, or it needs a good flushing of electronic contact cleaner, attach the supplied straw and aim it in the jack and spray, next take the headphone jack and push it in and out quickly, repeat the process three or four times, If this fails the laptop will need to be dis-assembled for continued repair.
Please use S.K.O super kerosine oi to the female socket and push the jack three or four time .l Also you will install the driver, or update your mobile. for repair jack click here click here REGARD'S SHIBUDA
if you tried switching the headphones and have same issue, only a touch of solider will fix it. Microcenter has refurbed players for CHEAP with nice lcd video screens. http://www.microcenter.com/search/search_results.phtml?sortby=pricelow&web_group=hw_mp3_players&category=KB1
yes, you need to remove the roller (prod with screw driver at its base) then the plastic covers from the top and bottom of the dj must come off. this will expose eight screws total. remove them. then push the motherboard and the harddrive and bettery up through the case/shell. you will see the bad connections between the jack and the motherboard, solder them again to reestablish the connection. re assemble.
i am not saying this will not harm the dj, i did it a bit differently and screwed mine up. bestofluck
I have the same problem with my DJ 30, and it exists with several different types of headphones.
I am thinking about trying a mono to stereo adaper, where the plug is mono, and the ear phones are stereo. I don't know if it will work or not.
Same here! There must be a big problem with these things. I called DELL....that is a major ordeal in itself dealing with them.....but finally got ahold of a guy at corporate. He said they didnt make them anymore....wouldnt say why and offered a $100.00 discount on anything else they sold. I got a camera and they took off the money. Good luck! They are hell to deal with!
Theres a good posibility that the solder connections are the only thinbg wrong with the connections BUT theres a possibility that the Printed curcuit board its self is a flex board and that the flex connections are torn. If thats the case you probably wont be able to fix the unit. If you can open the unit then you can look at the connections and see if its just plain old solder connections?? Good Luck
