    I also have issues with my headphone jack...and I've TRIED new headphones. If I hold the headphone plug in firmly it will be OK BUT if my finger moves just a slight bit it drops out and I'll only hear one track of the music. I can plug it into my stationary speakers and it won't cut out as long as the player doesn't move. Can't get the back off to see what the wire status is.

This may seem like a silly question but, have you tried a different set of head phones? A lot of the time this is caused by normal wear and tear on the wires in the headphones. Its usually around the jack because this is where most of the stress is placed on the wires. We take for granted the fact that the cables bend so freely and forget that its still metal in there and all metal is susceptible to fatigue. You bend it enough times it breaks. Hopefully that helps.

The head phone jack is causing crackles and static noise and not a clear reception. I move the earbud jack around to get the right sound. Is there a way to permanently fix the headphone jack port?


It is very possible that the problem lies with your headphones and not the player. Have you tried to use a different set of headphones to see if that fixes the problem?

On deaf ear


sounds like headphone jack is either dirty or loose in the unit or a possible blown fuse.

if still under warrenty I would get it serviced if not then if you feel comfortable opening it up and looking around the inside of the unit around the sounds output jack then you can try that and see if you can find any blown or burnt problems around there loose connections.

I have a Creative Zen Vision M (30 Gb) and am suddenly having some strange problems with sound. My usual headphones are now producing sound out of only the left channel. When I tried other headphones...


Hi if you are having head phone are giving you different sound from different head phones you have a head phone jack that is not connection properly. Some times the head phone jack can be replaced and that will fix it. other times the whole main board will have to be replaced due to a chip on the main board is whats causing the sound to change like it does. Try moving the jack around by twisting it and moving it from side to side while in the players whole. If the sound seems to change, start working on both side or you get static. as long as the sound you are getting is not staying the same then I would say its the head phone jack itself. It the sound stays the same witch is sounds like ti doesn't from what you have stated then it would be the main board. Either way something needs to be repaired.


If you need any more help, parts or your player repaired you can go to my repair service web page and e-mial me, call me or contact me threw my Ebay user name at from my web page at firehouse7777.weebly.com Thanks

Head phone jack on mp3 player doesnt work properly


im pretty sure if you were to use a q-tip and a bit of rubbing alcohol and just wet the tip then clean out the port it might work just let it dry out for a little bit after you do it by all means dont use water.

Left side quit working, not earbuds, i tried other sets


I had the same problem. the stereo mini jack connection to the circuit board of the mp3 player is broken or loose. I jiggled the jack around and the sound came back into both ears but that only worked for a little while and is annoying. Basically, unless you can re-solder the mini jack to the circuit board, or get someone to do it for you, your player is now just a flash drive.

Head ear phones works


have you tried other headphones or earphones
some headphones lose connection in the wire  and will cause a short where one side works and the other doesnt
if this is not the problem may have a lose jack on the inside of the player and will probably have to have it serviced

Ok people the problome is in the head phone jack. It don't make proper conection any more from being twisted and wiggled around all the time. What you can do is take the mp3 apart and put a little pice of paper and fold it upon top of the head phone jack and put it back together. Make sure that the paper is still thick enough to push down on the jack. You might have to get two extra screws of the longer two types. just in case. Any comments e mail me at: nick_sixx@live.com
