Re: headphone jack

Try cleaning out the headphone jack with a Q-tip and a very small amount of glass cleaner or rubbing alcohol. That seemed to work for me.

My ipod classic is only playing out of 1 headphone, it is the same with all headphones

Step 1:
Your trusty iPod has been a close and reliable friend for a long time but one morning only the sound of air comes through the headphones. The likely culprit is a loose or broken headphone jack that is in need of repair. Rather than spend an exorbitant amount of money to have someone fix it you can easily make the repair on your own and have your iPod friend back. Read on to learn how to fix a broken headphone jack for a fifth generation 30GB or 60GB iPod video.

Open the iPod case with a small flathead screwdriver by slipping it under the centerline of the case. You will find a series of clips you have to release in order for the case to open up about an inch. Locate the headphone jack connection and verify that there are no broken wires. Fix broken wires quickly by twisting the wires back together and wrapping with electrical tape. Test the iPod for sound by connecting your headphones to the jack. Replace the wires completely if you find static coming from the iPod jack. Fold a business card twice so that it wants to unfold and slip it into the case over the blue sponge. This creates the pressure needed to hold the jack in place and allow a solid connection. Push the case together without engaging the clips on the side and test to make sure the jack is now working. Try a thicker business card or fold the first one again to get enough pressure onto the jack connection if the first card didn't fix the problem. Press the case fully together until the clips click into place. Use extra care when inserting your headset to ensure the jack remains in place.

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.

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?

Everytime m headphones move my zune acts like they fell out and stops playing but they didnt so i bought new headphones and found out it was the zune that was acting up........i was wondering if it cant be...

Sounds like the headphone jack has broken solder connections to the circuit board. Mine MP3 player did too.
Fix it with a REALLY small-tipped soldering iron, re-solder the jack connections... not real easy.
Or return/exchange it.

Sound only in right ear

Its either the jack or the connector in the device is the problem. You can try connecting other headphone, if this works, then the problem lies on the jack of the old headphone.

ok well i am thinking that if you wiggle around the headphone jack you might get it. i believe you have a few loose solders and i hope that we have found the problem, i have a samsung yp-p2 and the headphone jack is loose and the lyrics will fade out basically and become unclear, so your headphone jack is probably loose.

Theres a good posibility that the solder connections are the only thinbg wrong with the connections BUT theres a possibility that the Printed curcuit board its self is a flex board and that the flex connections are torn. If thats the case you probably wont be able to fix the unit. If you can open the unit then you can look at the connections and see if its just plain old solder connections?? Good Luck
