    Only plays out one side of the headphones, it is a definite problem with the jack being loose, and from what I am getting on other sites, it is a common problem. Annoying bloody machine

It sounds like you may have an audio jack issue. The audio jack can be replaced by an very tech savy user or techy friend if you use an iPod repair guide that shows you how to open and disassemble and ipod touch. the parts are readily available on ebay. it may not be a broken jack, sometimes that cooper traces that lead to the jack are broken, then you can solve the problems by creating bridges that replace defective traces.

It's worth a shot, is there a pan control somewhere in the settings? These settings act as a cross fade between the right and left stereo signal. If its on all the way left or all the way right, you won't get sound out of one phone. Also have you tried to use a different pair of phones? The only other thing it could be is if there are internal volume/gain controls. My iPod has these. It limits the max volume I can get out of it. It may have been turned on some how. If it's not any of those, then i'm afraid you have a faulty headphone jack. It may be need to be sent in for warranty, or repair. If this is the case, you could in the mean time fanagle it a bit... Sometimes if you pull a phone out of the jack just a touch it creates a short in the jack which sends the single thru as mono. Hope that helps.

Bluetooth headset and headphone jack same time


They're designed to work one at a time. I'm not sure if you could do this with tweaks, but you're going to have to root your phone for that (and you may void your warranty by doing that.)

Could be possibly dirt in Ipad headphone jack (common prob) - put a drop of isopropyl alcohol in Ipad jack - just a drop. You might also check headphones in a computer jack to verify if it is possibly the headphones.

Sound only in right ear bud now. Some headphones don't have sound at all. The same headphones work fine in other MP3 players.


It happens, just keep trying different head or ear phones till you get the one that will work well(both ears). I have had that kind of challenge before, mind you, the problem is not from the mp3 but from phones.

Sound only in right ear


Its either the jack or the connector in the device is the problem. You can try connecting other headphone, if this works, then the problem lies on the jack of the old headphone.

Headphone Jack is NOT working properly


Check your sound device levels. you may need to enable that headphone port before it is usable. you can do this in the control panel tab. reinstalling your sound drivers wouldn't hurt also.

Tdk mp100 headphone jack


Each of the rubber covered cords running to each ear piece has two fine strand wire bundles inside. The right ear piece has a red colored strand and a copper colored strand. The left ear piece has a green colored strand and a copper colored strand. The wires are coated with an insulation lacquer. The lacquer burns off when you heat the wire for soldering.

Repair item: 3.5 mm stereo headphone jack, shrink tubing

Plan for strain relief:. These headphone wires can't take any tension at all. You need to crimp the black cords to the headphone jack somehow.

Slide strain relief and headphone jack housing over the over the rubber covered headphone cord.

  • You need to plan a way to relieve the pulling stress on the solder joints where the two headphone cords enter your replacement headphone jack.
  • Try shrink tubing if you have it.
  • If you have some thermal shrink tubing, slide a piece over the headphone cord end before stripping the wires.
  • Slide the headphone jack casing over the headphone cord also.
Strip each headphone cord 5/8" using the 18 gage setting of your wire stripper..

Hold each headphone cord in a "third hand" soldering assist tool and tease the green, red and copper bundles apart..I wore a 10x Magnavisor and I used a sewing needle and a bright light.

Twist the copper colored strands from both headphone cords together. They are the common ground wires. The copper colored bundle will attach to the headphone jack ground.

Apply a dab of solder to the end of each of the three bundles of wire. You will see and smell the insulating lacquer as it burns off. Keep most of the wire bundle cool.

Position the two strand headphone cord and the 3.5 mm headphone jack in the third hand soldering stand.
  • Plan where you can crimp the headphone cord. Crimp it when ready.
  • The green == left channel wire goes to the tip of the 3.5mm jack.
  • The red==right channel wire goes to the middle of the 3.5 mm jack
  • The copper colored wires go to the ground of the jack..
  • Measure resistance, 31 ohms per earpiece.
  • Screw the jack cover on and finish the strain relief craftsmanship.
