The wire inside of the earbud part became unglued. How can I reattach it?

    I'm not exactly sure...it's where the end of the wire is attached in the earbud. It looks like it was soldered down, so I was wondering if I could just re-solder it.

How to fix fuel guauge has loose wire


Reattach the wire after you have turned off the switch. How to do this depends on why and how it became disconnected. If the wire is pulled out of the gauge, then it is more difficult. Pleas give year, make, model.

Ask a windscreen replacing shop for ideas and failing that very careful use of Loctite 401 may fix the problem It is a super glue made for the purpose of fixing rear vision mirrors to windscreens. Ensure you have acetone or nail polish remover on hand in case you stick your fingers together.

My Jenn Air microwave model JMC8130DDS door panel has come unglued...what do I use to reattach it?


Super glue, hot glue, or J. B. Weld would all work, if applied neatly in minimal quantities to squeaky clean, dry surfaces which are then clamp lightly until the glue sets.

Left earbud has no sound


I had this problem with 2 of my HBS 700s. The speaker in the earbud goes bad and needs to be replaced. If it is still under waranty you can send it in to be replaced (trying a home repair will probably void your waranty so try this at your own risk). If it is out of waranty and you have experience with a soldering iron, the earbuds can be replaced with a plain set that look similar to the originals from your local store (Wallgreens has a good selection for like $10). I am a novice at these things but the solution was pretty easy and has worked for both of my earbuds. I actually improved the quality of sound by installing better earbuds.

3d9a9467-2679-44c4-ba93-679ba93f6b9d.jpgYou will need:
- 1 small soldering iron
- one set of new wired earbuds (no volume control or mic... just plain earbuds)
- jewlers phillips head screwdriver
- one small flat screwdriver or thin flat edge to pry the cover off.
- one needle or thumbtack
Directions are the same for both sides. I suggest doing one side at a time and repeating the steps for the other side.
Directions:
- TURN OFF HBS 700
- locate the rubber plug on the bottom of the case (one on each side above the L and R symbols) and remove the plug with a needle.
- remove the screw located under the plug

- use a jewelers flathead screwdriver or thin flat edge to pry the case appart. The best method is to gently pry the bottom of the case outward then push in and up on the top part of the case starting at the back of the plastic case (where the earbud wire comes out) and working your way forward.

- remove the earbud cup and set aside. (if working on left side, also remove the charger door.)
- the circut board is held in place by plastic arms on the sides. Gently pry the circut board away from the case and lift up where the arms are holding it in place.

- once case is removed from circut board, you will see where the earbud soldered to the board.

NOW FOR THE FUN STUFF...
-cut your replacement earbuds to length and expose about 1/4" of the two wires inside (usually one gold and one colored or one solid color and one multi colored).
-The two wires are coated to prevent them from shorting out while touching. Add solder to your soldering iron so there is a good drop hanging from the tip. Insert one wire at a time into the drop of solder (about 1/32" will do) and hold it there for a few seconds. This will melt the coating and allow the solder to stick to the wire.
BE CAREFUL NOT TO SOLDER TOO MUCH OF THE WIRE OR IT WILL TOUCH THE OTHER AND SHORT OUT! ONLY A LITTLE ON THE TIP OF THE WIRE WILL DO.
-carefully use the soldering iron to remove the old earbuds from the circut board. A small soldering iron with a sharp tip works much better than the standard size at this. The soldering points for +/- are VERY close together so becareful not to melt them together.
-solder the new earbuds in place of the old ones. + to + and - to -.
-tie a knot in the earbud wire close to the circut board so it does not pull free from the case when closed.

-at this point in my repair, I turned the HBS 700 on to listen for the startup tone to make sure the earbud was connected properly. I DO NOT RECOMMEND TURNING IT ON OR TOUCHING COMPONENTS WHILE IT IS ON. IF YOU WISH TO CHECK IT AT THIS POINT LIKE I DID, DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK. ALSO, MAKE SURE NOT TO HOLD THE CIRCUT BOARD OR TOUCH IT WHILE IT IS ON AND TURN IT OFF BEFORE CONTINUING.

NOW IT'S TIME TO PUT IT ALL BACK TOGETHER.
-reinsert the circut board to the top cover in reverse of how you took it out. Do not force it and make sure all the plastic arms clip over the circut board securely. Make sure to press the buttons to see if the are seated right.
-replace the earbud cup, battery door and power switch if it fell off.
-attach the bottom cover making sure to leave the knot on the inside of the cover. The cover should snap on easily.
-Re-insert the screw and plug.
DONE!

If you wish your new earbuds to attach magnettically to the cup, you will need to break open the old earbuds and remove the magnets from inside. Then glue them to the outside of the new earbuds or drill a hole for them to sit in and glue them in. Be careful tho because drilling holes too deep in the new earbuds could damage the wires inside (I found that out the hard way)

Is there a way to fix my earbuds when only one side works, but when i move around the wire both sides work. Or do I need to get new earbuds?


This happens because on of the wires inside the cable that goes to the faulty earbud is broken so it makes contact just by accident. This is unfixable, you need new ones.

Why did my left earbud become silent?


Hi,
you can make both of the earbuds work. You can open the earbud where the speaker is that you use to hear the musik. Use a soldering iron and a lead. check if the wire inside has removed, fix it back and you will hear sound on both earbuds.

Take care.

This is not a serious problem, but it should be fixed. It probably just came unglued and can be reattached.
