Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player

1 Answer

Headphone jack k, so my headphones go in and out, usually one side never plays, sometimes they'll both play or go out at the same time. i assumed it was my headphones because they were quite old. wrong, i bought brand new headphones today, nice ones even, and they do the exact same thing. So i am thinking now that the headphone input on the ipod is dirty or loose or something What to do?

Re: headphone jack

Your best bet is to find a shop that repairs Ipods. Your headphone jack is breaking away from the printed circuit board and needs resoldered. Shouldnt be too expensive. My shop would charge $25-$40 for a repair like that.

When i plug my headphone in my ipod 5 genration it plays out loud

Try getting a can of compressed air to blow out the headphone jack sometimes dirt gets in there. Don't blow with just your mouth. If this works try keeping headphone jack covered so dirt doesn't get in there. Switcheasy makes doc and headphone port covers they come with their cases.

Head phone jack only plays right side/brad new headphones

Call Philips, get replaced - this is a common problem across all mp3 manufacturers. You can look at the YouTube video on repairing mp3 player headphone jacks, but i doubt it will work without causing more problems with your mp3 player.

Mono Sound Playing through Headphones

Simplest solution, from experience: make sure your headphone jack is pushed all the way into Zen 3.5 output jack. Sometimes it will feel like it's clicked in but you need a little extra push to get it all the way in.
Another thing to look at: I pretty sure the is a preference setting that controls right/left balance (my son has my Zen right now). If you can find  this control, it could be set all the way to one or the other side.
Give it a try, or see if resetting zen helps.
Good Luck.

IPod MA146LL/A no sound

You should check and see if the headphone jack is broke or not. That sometimes accounts for the reason why sound won't come out.

Nano shows song playing but nothing happens

Make sure your headphones are working properly by testing with your computer headphone jack.

Is the headphone port on the Nano loose?

Connect the Nano to your iPod dock and see if you can head audio through the docks headphone jack.

If the headphones work, and you can get audio out of the dock headphone port, then there is a problem with your Nanos headphone jack.
