Question about Kingston Kpex100 Digital Media Player
While walking through a crowded airplane, I snagged the headphones on a seat I was walking past. This yanked the headphones out of the Kpex's headphone jack. When I put the headphones back in, I discovered I could only hear sound in the left headphone, the right is completely silent.
I find that I *can* get audio out of both headphones by twisting the headphones plug in the jack, which leads me to think that there must be a contact inside the jack that is bent so it doesn't always make contact.
I have tested the same headphones on a different device and they work fine. Similarly, I have tested a different set of headphones on the same Kpex player and found the same problem.
I also dismantled the player in hopes that it was just a wire that could be re-soldered. No such luck, it looks like the jack is soldered in place properly, which must mean that the contact inside is bent like I suspect (I guess).
Does anyone know where I can purchase a new headphone jack? Is there another possible solution?

Try to change your baby jack adapter inside your kpex,because it was damage,if it is still under the warranty,bring it to your kpex dealer

The contacts inside the headphone jack are made of a springy metal there is one for the left and one for the right speakers. This happened to my Blackberry and I took it apart and got inside the jack block and re-sprung the contacts. It worked for me... I used a dental pick.
