Question about Speedo Aquabeat MP3 Player i

# Earphone muffling None of the earbuds that came with the mp3 player keep the water out of my ears. After I swim about 6 feet, my ears fill with water and I can barely hear the music. Any suggestions?

When I insert the earphones I lick them first to moisten them. Then I pull my earlobes upwards when I insert them deep. There will be a slight vacuum on them when they sit tight. <div>(Try to use a bigger size if this does not work.)<br /> <div>To get them out afterwards is not so easy: just pull gently and wiggle a bit.</div> <div>But they are GREAT fun to have on your laps!</div></div><!-- from fixya rte -->

I had the same problem but through trial and error came to a good solution that works consistantly for me as I swim laps. When you push the earbud in your ear push it as deep as you can so that there is suction if you try to pull it out. That keeps water out. When pulling out the earbud do it slowly and wiggle to break the suction. This is an uncomfortable way to walk around with the earbud in your ear but if you do this just when you are swimming laps you'll never notice this discomfort while you are swimming.

### How many gallons of water in 3172 cubic feet of water?

There are 7 1/2 gallons of water in a cubic foot.

3172 x 7.5 = 23,790

To calculate how much water in a swimming pool, in 'US Feet':
Length x Width = Surface Feet
Surface Feet x Average Depth = Cubic Feet
Cubic Feet x 7.5 = Total Gallons

### My swimp3 Player won't play. It seems to have a

The Swimp3 Surf was discontinued by the manufacturer in 2009, so at this point the warranty is likely expired. (sorry for that bad news).

However, there may be a bright point. If the short is in the earpiece, they do offer replacement earbuds that work specifically with the SurfMp3 and new Xtreamp3. You can visit
http://www.finisinc.com/P-130024/Xtreamp3-Replacement-Ear-Buds to purchase them.

If the short is somewhere else, it may not be fixable since the player is a sealed unit.

Good Luck and I hope you're back to swimming to music, soon.

### I have a problem with earbuds or headphones, when I plug the earbuds in it only plays on my right side of earbuds.

Hey...that's the exaxt same thing that happened to me. On the same side too.

If you've had it for awhile the only thing I can suggest is replace it.

### I CAN'T HEAR ANYTHING! HELP!

That has happened to me before, what happened was where you input the earphone jack was broken, no matter how many different headphones i tried none worked. Now I understand this doesn't help, but it might save a lot of time.
Although one short short term thing i did find out though, is that if you push the headphone jack to the side, sometimes you will receive a little sound.

### Earphone socket on the Cowon iAudio XL5 30 gig.

try to send it back to Cowon company, or try to solder the joints, inside the mp3 player most likely it is at the top of the mp3 player, but know what your doing otherwise it can be destroyed, if you don't repair it the right way

### One earphone works

i had the same exact problem with mine. Reading around it seems to be a common problem with the Sansa line. I opened mine up and found that one of the solder points that holds the ear phone jack to the main board had come loose. I soldered it back and it works like a charm. Pretty easy too. If you have a soldering iron, just open it up and resolder the solder point that has broken off. You can read instructions for disassembly here: http://www.anythingbutipod.com/archives/2006/11/sandisk-sansa-c200-disassembled.php When you have it apart, looking at it from the side, with the jack to the right, the broken point should be the rear (closest to the circuitry) point. You will see a very small, not sure what to call it, chip on the board you have to solder a connection to. here is a diagram: http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e321/fuzzygoat/sansa-c200-disassembley-8.jpg Hope this helps.
