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.

I purchased this mp3 on 11th devmber. the music is not getting through to the headphones - can you help? is it powered by a battery & is one included as standard?


Hi mharrington9,

You may want to post the make and model of your mp3 player. Someone may have solved the same problem with the same player, and would then be able to give you a more specific answer than this one;

I assume you have replaced or re-charged the battery first, and that full power to your player did not help. If so, it is likely to be a problem with the headphones, the headphone receptacle, or the amplifier inside the mp3 player;

1) Headphone problem?
Get a different set of ear-bud headphones, and try them out. If the alternative set works but your headphones do not work, it's the headphones.

1a) Large headphones, small player?
If your headphones are large, but the power of your MP3 player is small, the player may not have enough power to drive the headphone speakers. If you run your MP3 player through an additional amplifier, you may then have enough power to get sound out of your headphones.

1b) Broken wire in ear bud jack?
Most of my broken ear-bud sets have failed because one or more of the wires has broken, usually at the plug-end. There are 3 thin wires; If you break the left-channel or right-channel wire, only one earbud goes out. If you break the ground wire, both earbuds stop working, or you may hear a very faint sound at full volume. If you like to solder things, it is possible to get a new plug, cut off the old one, and solder in a new one. But it may be easier to get a new set of earbuds.

2) Broken Receptacle?

Plug your ear-buds into a different, working MP3 player. If the ear-buds work, then
Plug your MP3 into a computer through the data cable, and try to play something through the computer.
If the MP3 works through the data cable, something is wrong with the receptacle for your ear-bud plug.
You may be able to get your MP3 player replaced under warranty, since the purchase was recent. Or, if no warranty and you feel adventurous, take the back off and try to re-solder or replace the receptacle-- Though this usually ends in irreparable damage to the MP3 player :-\

3) Broken MP3 player?
If you can't get any music to play through the data cable or the computer, something is seriously wrong with the guts of the MP3 player. Try for a warranty replacement if you can.

Best of luck, mharrington9

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 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.
