The jack might need replacement since it may be broken on the inside. Also check with your headphones on anther known working device to make sure that the issue is not with the headset.

When I use the music player I only get sound in one ear of the headphones


Use another headphone to confirm if the wire is cut or the jack connection within is faulty.
Most of the time these cords are so delicate that a slight pull can stretch and cut cconnection off .
Once the test proves right you can either get a jack fixed or might need to buy a new one.

Headphone jack works but no sound


I had this problem too, only there was zero sound, even when I clicked Test. I know the jack is good because it's never done any of the typical crackling or cutting out when the cord is pulled in a certain direction, etc. - I knew it had to be a setting of some kind. So here's how I solved this particular problem:

[N.B. - This is in Windows 7 OS]
I went into Control Panel -> Hardware & Sound -> Sound -> Manage Audio Devices.

In the popup window's Playback tab (which comes up by default,) I right-clicked on Headphones, then clicked Properties. The new popup window's General tab comes up as default; I clicked on the Levels tab, where there's a slider control for headphone volume. For whatever reason, this was set to 0. I changed it to 100 and I immediately got sound. 'Clicked OK, and exited Control Panel.

Music only comes from the left headphone


This is a common problem with the headphone jack - if you google "ipod 30Gb headphone jack repair" there are both places that will replace the jack and places that will sell you the new "ribbon" connector and hold switch and jack (it's all one unit). If you're comfortable opening the iPod and have a TINY (#000) jeweler's philips head screwdriver you can replace the unit with no soldering. It helps if you have patience and small fingers and good light; you'll have to fasten the ribbon connector carefully. I paid under $10 for my last part but I've seen the same part for $30+, so caveat emptor. For that price they should put it in for you...

Tip of my headphones popped off in the headphone jack


The easiest way to get it out would be to use a couple of long sewing needles and put them in the jack on either side applying a little pressure (Not to much or you'll have broken needles in there too1) like chopsticks try and pull it out. Make sure you do this with the power off. If you want to salvage the headphones the connector will need replacing, they can be bought at most electronic stores. It's a 3.5mm headphone jack that your after. They can give you instructions for fitting at the shop, it varies depending on the connector.

Tdk mp100 headphone jack


Each of the rubber covered cords running to each ear piece has two fine strand wire bundles inside. The right ear piece has a red colored strand and a copper colored strand. The left ear piece has a green colored strand and a copper colored strand. The wires are coated with an insulation lacquer. The lacquer burns off when you heat the wire for soldering.

Repair item: 3.5 mm stereo headphone jack, shrink tubing

Plan for strain relief:. These headphone wires can't take any tension at all. You need to crimp the black cords to the headphone jack somehow.

Slide strain relief and headphone jack housing over the over the rubber covered headphone cord.

  • You need to plan a way to relieve the pulling stress on the solder joints where the two headphone cords enter your replacement headphone jack.
  • Try shrink tubing if you have it.
  • If you have some thermal shrink tubing, slide a piece over the headphone cord end before stripping the wires.
  • Slide the headphone jack casing over the headphone cord also.
Strip each headphone cord 5/8" using the 18 gage setting of your wire stripper..

Hold each headphone cord in a "third hand" soldering assist tool and tease the green, red and copper bundles apart..I wore a 10x Magnavisor and I used a sewing needle and a bright light.

Twist the copper colored strands from both headphone cords together. They are the common ground wires. The copper colored bundle will attach to the headphone jack ground.

Apply a dab of solder to the end of each of the three bundles of wire. You will see and smell the insulating lacquer as it burns off. Keep most of the wire bundle cool.

Position the two strand headphone cord and the 3.5 mm headphone jack in the third hand soldering stand.
  • Plan where you can crimp the headphone cord. Crimp it when ready.
  • The green == left channel wire goes to the tip of the 3.5mm jack.
  • The red==right channel wire goes to the middle of the 3.5 mm jack
  • The copper colored wires go to the ground of the jack..
  • Measure resistance, 31 ohms per earpiece.
  • Screw the jack cover on and finish the strain relief craftsmanship.

Headphone jack broken speakers wont work


Yes, since the Headphone pin is stuck in the Jack, you are not getting audio from Speakers.

You should have noticed that connecting the headphones to the Jack will block the audio coming from the Speakers and the same is the current situation.

You can either try removing the blocked part using a Tweaser or get it repaired.

Ipod and headphone problem


The headphone jack on all the apple products have issues (even their laptops). There is no easy fix, other than having the jack replaced, or remounted. A common issue is that it comes loose from the pc board, especially with the movement of the headphone cord. This is a design/functionality flaw.

Hope this helps some.

Problems with Headphone and USB plugs


I share the same problem - I'm worried it's due to routine wear-and-tear on the jacks, so the connections are no longer solid. I hate to think I need to get it serviced for this. Usually buying a new cable has worked, but that gets expensive too... Anyone have a fix??
