Speaker broke came off breaking both wires, where can i get this fixed? can i send it to blue parrot?


My guess is that the soldered piece broke? Does it look like it can be re-soldered? If so, do u have any friends who are good with a soldering iron? You can buy one for under $10 and fix it yourself, but if uncertain, check the following:
Radio Shack ... some have techs to repair in house stuff
Jewelers --- find one who is not busy at Christmas
Mr. Fix-It ... almost every mall has one.

You will most likely end up soldering the wires together to make contact. Keep the colors the same ... black to black ... white with a stripe to white witha stripe ... you get it? If you still have the female end of the wires that attached to the connectors you can test to see if it works by directly wiring to the female connector. If it works, then you can try a more permanent repair. If not, speakers are not a ton of money, unless they are huge AR15's or something nice!
I almost forgot the ABSOLUTE BEST place to take them ... go to any Automotive stereo installer ... most of them know how to solder and repair speakers, I would guess. Try that one! And if ALL of the above Fail! See if you have a ham radio seller in town and see if he'll do you a favor. Back also to Radio Shack or anyone who sells speakers.

LG Tone HBS-730 won't turn on


First a couple of questions:





  • How old is the unit?...Battery could be spent and can no longer hold a charge. Replace battery.


  • Is the switch working properly? You should feel a discernable "click" when you turn on the unit. If you don\'t, the piece that moves the on off switch within the unit has probably broken.



    • Fix for broken switch:




      • Get some quality small screwdrivers (flat head and Philips), a small, single color, Terry cloth (to catch small screws), a cutting blade (utility knife), small needle/pin, and a well lit work area.


      • Place Terry cloth on to work area


      • Find rubber stopper just above switch and adjacent to speaker wire that covers the Philips screw.


      • Use needle/pin to remove rubber stopper. Chances are it will fly off once freed from unit, so prick it with needle to attain a firm hold.


      • Use small Philips screw driver to remove screw. Terry cloth should catch screw and keep from rolling off into oblivion.


      • Use utility knife to pry open plastic casing at the seam. It may be best to start at top near the screw hole and work your way down. Use small flat head screwdriver to place between opened area to assist in helping your progress downward. Eventually the entire casing will pop off.


      • Examine the on off switch actuator to determine if this is the problem by moving it back and forth. The actuator should move a small black switch on the circuit board. If the actuator is broken, the switch will move back and forth w/o moving the black switch.


      • If it is determined that the actuator is not moving the switch, use small screw driver to move black switch to "on" position and look/listen for activity, to verify that switch is working.


      • To fix broken actuator, remove it from casing and place on Terry cloth. From examination, you will notice that tab(s) at the bottom have bent or broken off. To repair, a simple solution was to flip the actuator and cutout a the middle section of the tab opposite of the broken end using the utility knife. Be careful to cut too much so that it would not be able to move the switch.


      • Replace the actuator back on the sliding mechanism and test to see if the actuator moves the switch properly. If you cut too much, all may be lost! Perhaps some super glue and a tiny spare plastic piece to attach to actuator may work.


      • Replace plastic covering and replace screw and stopper. (Be careful to return speaker wire knot inside unit to its proper place)


      • Again, check switch to verify that it is working properly.


      • In future, take care when turning on and off the unit. Perhaps too much pressure or faulty plastic may have been the cause of it failing.

No noise is coming out of the right earphone


If in warranty, return it for repair.
Assure that your player is working by trying it with another headset. If it doesn't work, having the balance off to one side would be a cause. Another cause is lint or dirt getting into the headphone connector.
Most likely there is a broken wire caused by pulling on the cord at the connector or earphone. To isolate which end, try pushing the wire into the connector or earphone and seeing what makes the sound come back. The break will usually be where it enters the strain relief and can flex the most.
If holding the wire straight makes it work, you can try applying epoxy around it to keep it that way. Otherwise, you will either need to solder on a new connector (reasonably easy if you can solder) or re-solder where it goes into the earphone (difficult and/or looks like hell). These items are not made to be repaired.

Old question, but may be somebody else is experiencing the same issue. The earcup without the boom has a noise cancelling board, so it could be one of the wires that goes from one board to the other one. Gently take the earcup off and look at the 4 wires that are soldered on top (red, black, shield and white). If one of these is cut, the speaker/anr won't work. You will need a very small soldering iron to repair it (no more than 15 - 20 watts). Good luck, hope this helps ;)

Most headphones hide the access under the part that fits to your ear. The Black rubber pad cushion should remove and you made need to peal away the foam part depending on the type. You might have to glue it back on when done. There should be between 2 and 4-5 screws of the tiny possidrive type. I found soldering the wires back on tricky. They seem to resist the solder, sometimes a bit of spit helps.
The biggest problem however to headphone repair is getting the Black foam pad back on! There's a kind of skirt that has to go around the thing and it never wants to go on!!
PS make certain the cable doesn't have breaks in it especially around the plug!!

Logitech 350 Headset Casing


Had the same problem, no headphone speakers would work.
First use a flat head screwdriver and insert in between leather padding
and plastic case and pry apart. Best to start at one area, insert a wedge
and pry further along. It will take a bit of force before it pops apart.

I found that the wire had broke right at the entry grommet. I pulled the
wire through and wiggled it and the speakers went on and off.

In my case I felt it was best to redo all the wiring. I first took these pictures
to have a map and pulled through an extra 4" of wire through and cut/desoldered
the wires.
Here are the original wiring connections at the speaker
4017e98.jpg and what must be the common. This was the wire that was broken
inside.

I re-soldered all the connections and separated them as best I could with
electrical tape (no shrink). Put everything back together and so far
seems to work fine.

How to take apart


I figured out how to remove the headphone clip without causing cosmetic damage to the headphone casing. Unfortunately for me, this was after I had scratched up the casing already. Anyway, to avoid the cosmetic damage, use some kind of plastic tool, like a plastic spoon. After pulling off the headphone cushion, you will see the aforementioned 4 slots. Carefully slip the handle end of the spoon underneath one of the slots(not through them), and apply gentle pressure toward the center of the speaker. Do this for each of the 4 slots, and the tabs should easily come loose. Hope that helps.As for figuring out how to get the headphone to work, I'm waiting for that solution myself. The right headphone is out, but the left one works, none of the wires are loose, so the damage must be from my nephew being careless with the headset cable, and probably tugging on it once too often. Don't let your 15 year olds use your headsets, if they tend to be clumsy :)

Can't hear sound on one of the headphone's speaker


It's less common for one of the speakers to go bad in a set of headphones. It's possible - but there are more common problems that will cause this. I assume you have tried the headphones on another device to rule our a problem with the device you are currently listening with and using the other device, you still only hear audio from the left speaker.

The wires in the cord that connect the plug to the headphones are very thin and are susceptible to breaking. The most commmon place for these wires to break is at the point where the cord is flexed or stressed the most. Those points are:

1. Right at the plug
2. Where the wire enters into the left and right speaker.

There are occasions where I have seen the wires become unsoldered from the speaker terminals within the headphones themself.

What You Can Do:

1. While listening with the headphones, try flexing the cord back & forth at the plug and where the wire goes into the right speaker. See if the audio will come back and cut out again.

2. What I have done is cut the cord about 3" back from the plug. Go to Radio Shack and purchase a new plug and install a new plug on the cord.

3. You can also take the headphones apart and cut a few inches off the cord where it connects to the right speaker and reconnect the new end of the wire to the right speaker. The goal is to cut away the bad part of the cord and re-attach the good part back.

4. You can try to replace the entire cord but I haven't been able to find replacement (THIN) cords too easily.

Good Luck,

- Jim
