Your supossed to just keep the plug in, if one doesn't work when the plug is fully in, buy new ones.

Only one side works, but when you move the wire it will work but it is choppy. when you stop pushing the wire, it will not work.

im assuming that your talking about your ear plugs when u say only one side works it sounds like you have a short in your ear plugs try a different pair of ear plugs.

My MP3 suddenly only plays in one ear piece (speaker side) I bought a new pair of heads phones and it is still the same. What's happened ?

Notice the plug is sectioned into two or three bits by black lines? Each section corresponds to a 'connection' within the jack--one for each of the stereo channels

If you are pushing the earphone plug deep enough into the jack to make contact with the respective sockets and are still not getting all (both) channels, most likely one of the wires connected to the jack (socket) or the corresponding circuit (board) has either shorted out or is no longer connected.
If you can open the device, look for a thin red or black wire that is no longer connected/soldered. Splice it or re-solder it.

Failing that, the jack itself may have cracked (due to excessive bending when you insert the plug).

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.

Ear phone out put

This usually happens when your headphones get old. Try getting a new pair and it should work fine!
