Headphone Jack Stopped working

Only Right Ear phone I beleive is working currently... They are both identical but I think it's right, either way the volume is low when pluged in and I have to Fidgit the Plug and Push on it to make it sound proper at the best of times, but usually it simply just does not work.

    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.

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.

Sandisk M250 ear phones Jack information 2.5 or 3.5 ?


It's the larger headphone minijack standard on most portable tape players etc., not the much larger one found on hime stereo equipment or the smaller one most often found on cellphones. So, "3.5" (mm?), I suppose.

Ear plug


That is normal for most mp3 players

If you are getting sound out of only one ear, then the headphone jack is broke - unfortunately, Philips does not have any more HDD models to send you as a replacement

Headphone jack


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.
