My right audio channel doesn't work on one of my decks? How do I go about fixing it?

Hi Lawrence,
This is a common problem with failed speaker cables. Try swapping the other speaker to your right channel to see if that will work. If it does than speaker cable on the right is damaged. If the swapped speaker doesn't work as well, you need to check the joints from the RCA jack.

Hope this helps.

Sound only in right ear bud now. Some headphones don't have sound at all. The same headphones work fine in other MP3 players.

It happens, just keep trying different head or ear phones till you get the one that will work well(both ears). I have had that kind of challenge before, mind you, the problem is not from the mp3 but from phones.

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.

Zune 30 gb broken "lock" button

The Lock button came right out and the wires attached to it broke, right? If so, y'alls pfft.
or, if not...
Go to this website and follow Steps 1 thru 4 ONLY. Picture 4 of Step 4 shows the top of the device to the left and the headphone jack nearest you. The Lock button should be right below the top arrow on the left of Picture 4. To unlock it, slide the switch **away** from the headphone jack.

!!! Please note that this is all strictly assumptions on my part. I have *never* taken my 30gig apart and am strictly working from the pics & past experience w/ micro-electronics. Do Not Take My Words As Being Absolutely Correct !!!

Headphone Jack Stopped working

It's worth a shot, is there a pan control somewhere in the settings? These settings act as a cross fade between the right and left stereo signal. If its on all the way left or all the way right, you won't get sound out of one phone. Also have you tried to use a different pair of phones? The only other thing it could be is if there are internal volume/gain controls. My iPod has these. It limits the max volume I can get out of it. It may have been turned on some how. If it's not any of those, then i'm afraid you have a faulty headphone jack. It may be need to be sent in for warranty, or repair. If this is the case, you could in the mean time fanagle it a bit... Sometimes if you pull a phone out of the jack just a touch it creates a short in the jack which sends the single thru as mono. Hope that helps.

Lost right channel on Dell Digitial Juke Box

yes, you need to remove the roller (prod with screw driver at its base) then the plastic covers from the top and bottom of the dj must come off. this will expose eight screws total. remove them. then push the motherboard and the harddrive and bettery up through the case/shell. you will see the bad connections between the jack and the motherboard, solder them again to reestablish the connection. re assemble.

i am not saying this will not harm the dj, i did it a bit differently and screwed mine up. bestofluck

More than likely the ear bud or the wiring is damaged. Try set from a friend that you know works for confirmation.

Headphone jack issues

Although headphones jacks are convient. They are very delicate as well. It take very little pressure agaist the jack when plugged in to bend the pins inside the jack that makes the connection. Then they get temermental. Generally the only recourse is to replace the headphonejack in the unit. better left to the techs. replacing can be tricky. But just to make sure you say you have tried other units. Here is something that works once in a great while. Unplug the unit dip the headphone jack {the tip on the headphones} in rubbing alchol insert it in the jack on the unit and spin it repeat several times let alchol evaporate then stick jack back in unit an spin again. Plug unit back in and see if it is better or the same.

Headphone jack

For my mp3 player I just took a simple peice of aluminum foil and wrapped it around my headphone piece. I shoved it in the mp3 player slot and it worked perfectly.
