Question about iRiver H10 MP3 Player

How can i fix the headphone jack on my iriver H10 6GB?

I already know it isn't a solder joint problem, because i checked for that and it was ok. so this leads me to believe that it is the headphone jack. I only get the left channel when I plug it in all the way, if i plug it in halfway, i get both channels. What is the best way to remedy this problem?

Having both side sound when plug is half inserted is getting only single channel sound goes to both sides of the headset. I will strongly recommend you to check the channels by touching on the PCB where the headset jack mounted using thin wires. Sometimes headset jack internally might be broken or the knobs internally migh be stuck.

    Headset is not the issue as you have give good clue, PCB means Printed Circuit Board, or another word mini mainboard of the MP3 player. headset's female jack (socket) is mounted on PCB and soldered. Visually solder might seem ok but still there is a chance issue can be resolved if resolder gently the connections of headset socket. However as I have informed it will be better if you check the both L and R channel by touching the connection points with thin wires. other sides of the wires can be tied up to the headset temporarily (testing purpose).

Sansa clip headphone jack -- headphones work fine on other players or phone, but clip plays only one ear. If i jiggle the headphones thingie inside of jack i get sound in both ears sometimes. 1) Any...


the jack inside the unit either is bad or the solder connections are bad...you can re-solder the jack(if you know how to solder) and see if this fixes it...or else you'll have to replace the jack(which may be avail. through Radio Shack)

Sound only in right ear bud now. Some headphones don't have sound at all. The same headphones work fine in other MP3 players.


It happens, just keep trying different head or ear phones till you get the one that will work well(both ears). I have had that kind of challenge before, mind you, the problem is not from the mp3 but from phones.

One channel not working on my iRiver t10 mp3 player


Most common cause is that the solder connection that holds the headphone jack to the board is broken. Usually can be fixed by taking the player apart and re-soldering the connection. Takes some effort and a pencil type soldering iron.
The T10 headphone jack is underneath the main board and you have to undo a solder connection in order to remove the board to gain access to the headphone jack. It's a lot of work but it can be done.

Headphone jack failure


Normal repair shop can't fix it
iRiver will not send you the headphone jacks, although you can purchase a broken iRiver on Ebay and obtain jacks for this purpose - be careful - you are risking other damage to player
You must get the entire player replaced
Sorry, but this is true of nearly all Mp3 manufacturers.
This is the only answer I can give you, because it is the only truthful answer.

Headphone jack problem


Most likely the solder points inside the unit where the headphone jack attaches to the system board have come undone. If you know how to solder, you could open the unit and fix it. If that is not an option, you could resort to using the other headphone jack instead assuming it is not damaged as well.

IRiver headphone jack


By the sound of it, I think your headphone jack might be damaged by "tear and wear". In that case, there's little you can do aside getting it serviced. If its warranty is void or expired already, you MIGHT be able to repair it yourself, if you're handy with soldering iron (and, possibly a hot glue gun). However, that would require quite a precision work, patience and vigilance 'cause you could easily damage other electrical components, either by physical means or by burning them out with excess heat... if you're willing to risk it, that is.

To sum it up: you do need to service it.

Headphone jack


Note this solution is for the Sansa e200.

OK, same headphone jack problem here and a bunch of people have the same problem. It got so annoying that I decided to risk the consequences and rip this baby apart. Sure enough one of the jack legs had a cold solder joint (the solder had not completely reflowed over the pin). I could press on the edge and see the pin lift away from the PCB pad. Looks like the others were touched up by hand because the pins were completely covered but the pin for the left side had been left as is. It is also the hardest to get at (because the SD cage is right next to it) so I'm wondering if they got sloppy and have a major quality problem with these. It's an easy problem to fix if you have a fine point soldering iron (big IF). A few tips: 1) Once you have the 4 inner and 4 outer screws off you have to carefully pry off the front cover, so be careful here 2) you then have to gently get the PCB out by carefully taking out the connector side first 3) there may be a riser card you have to take off to access the culprit jack pin, it is attached with some doubled sided sticky foam. Hope this helps.

Cannot hear music


The bad news is that your headphone jack is most likely shot. The soldered connections inside are most likely broken. This is not repairable generally, at least not for a cost that would be reasonable. Music will play through your computer because it can be read off your player through the USB connection. Use it as a data storage drive and buy a new one, or a used one. I've seen used T30s on Amazon for around $30 to $40.
