Problems with the headphone jack

Something is wrong with my headphone jack. My ilo only works when I angle the headphones a certain way and even then it doesn't always work. It never used to do that so I am wondering what happened to it and if it can be fixed.

You can try 2 things:
first thing:
remove the battery from the unit, if it is removable
grab some contact cleaner/rejuvinator and lightly coat a headphone plug with it, insert it into the headphone jack on the mp3 player and rotate it a few times, repeat 4-5 times.. then let everything dry for 5-10 minutes, pop battery back in and try it. if you don't have contact cleaner/rejuvinator, you can also use 70% or greater rubbing alcohol.

second thing:
if the first didn't work, you can remove the batteries, disassemble the unit, and replace the headphone jack itself. if you do not have experience with de-soldering, soldering, and potentially smd soldering techniques, i don't recommend this option. you may be able to get a local general electronics repair shop (tv/stereo) to replace the part for you for a nominal fee.

hope this helps,
trin

Speakers won't work after I use headphones


This more about what you are connecting the speakers to.
The headphone jack is essentially a switch that mechaniccally opens the ground connection to the speakers. It is a spring that is opened by the headphone jack pushing the spring contact open. What often happens is the headphone plug gets pulled at an angle and forces the clip to be open permanently.
Sometimes the jack can be removed and replaced. Take the music source to a repair shop.

My head phone works very good but the microphone doesn't work


When you say headphones do you mean the music headphones, like speakers, because they go in the headphone jack in the computer while microphones go in the microphone jack. The microphone is normally a pink color and the headphone jack is normally green. If you already knew this try wiggling the microphone to see if there is a brake in the wire, if that dose not make it fissile in and out then its something wrong with the microphone its self and should be replaced

I think I have broken my headphone jack on my sony vaio VGN-CS320J because headphones plugged into this jack do not work, unless held at a certain angle, otherwise sound continues to come from the laptop...


It might be the plug on the headphone that's bad - try it on another laptop. If it's the jack that's bad, then it will need to be taken apart and that's not easy to fix - recommend having a repair shop fix it.

Coby mp4 705 4GB headphone issues


Hey why don't you see if you can pry the two halves apart like an ipod, and then re solder the headphone jack. Or try wedging something around the edge of the jack to hold it where you want it. try this first. here is a link to youtube search.

Jack


sounds like the headphone socket is faulty. one of the channels could have a stray wire bridging it across to the earth connection. this would also explain the pause, as it would create a short circuit within the electronics.

sugest you take it back to the shop and complain.

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.

sometimes when overplugging the headphones people tend to loosen what holds it in place i suggest you insert the headphones about halfway and rotate them when and if you hear sound completely insert them but be patient
