Head ear phones works

have you tried other headphones or earphones
some headphones lose connection in the wire  and will cause a short where one side works and the other doesnt
if this is not the problem may have a lose jack on the inside of the player and will probably have to have it serviced

My headphones wont work everthing else is fine

Hi There,                The input for the head phone is a 32 ohm input. You need to get the proper 32ohm headphone for it. It seems that you tryed others but there are 16 ohms and 32ohms headphones. But if they do not work then it is your input connection or the device if your headphones work on other devices.You should bring the product back as a faulty device to the store and exchange it with your reciept then.  For the headphone that works on one side it can be the headphone jack that does not fit properly into the hole input (female jack).The one side does not touch or connect for it to work. It happens to cheap headphones and some good ones too. The male jacks on the headphones are slightly off it specification size by a small amount that it is not noticed by the naked eye, so it does not get a good connection.Try another head phone if you haven't tryed that

Loss of stereo mode

First I would try a different set of headphones/earbuds to make sure they're working properly.

If all the headphones you try have the same issue, the headphone jack is damaged. Bring it back to Best Buy. The contacts are too small to fix and are connecting incorrectly.

Ipod head phone jack no good

I agree with Solution 5. The copper pins in the jack that make the connection to your headphone plug are bent in such a way that they are springy and will make a good tight connection to the plug. When those copper connections get worn, they are not so springy and they bend inward causing you to lose audio on one side of your headphones unless you wiggle the plug and find that sweet spot that makes a connection. Then you have to hold the wire to keep pressure on it... it gets annoying.

You can open the case and there are slots in the headphone jack that you can get a hook scribe (like the dentists use) or safety pin to bent those copper connections back out. Don't bend them too far or they will break. You can also pick get a new part for $25 or a used part much cheaper. Once you iPod is open, it's a matter of a couple screws and a ribbon cable to replace the jack. Problem solved!
