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).

Input jack on my hp541 kicker headphone's sound comes and goes. I have tried multiple cables, If I wiggle the cable around it works in one speaker sometimes both.


Hi hotrodjayrod,

If the symptoms remain the same after trying another headset, this kind of fault is caused by bad solder joints in the earphone jack itself of your unit. This is due to frequent inserting and pulling the headset plug. To resolve the issue, the earphone jack must be re-soldered. You have to open the back cover of your player and using a pointed soldering iron, re-solder the joints.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

go to radioshack or some other electronics repair shop, and get an 1/8 inch stereo headphone jack. now you have to open the case of the PSP, an look at the main circuit board. undo the 4 or 5 solder joints in the main vicinity of the Old Jack. once the jack is loose, take it out and replace it with the new one in the exact same place. Now carefully re solder all of the joints being careful not to get any solder on the board, as this will ruin the entire system. Now close everything back up, and you should be good to go.

Peavey minx 110 no sound from main speaker but headphone jack is ok. speaker wires are attached ok.everything on the board appears to be in good shape.amp powers up and all controls work great through...


Inside the headphone jack is a built in switching mechanism. It is there to cut off the sound to the speaker when you are using headphones to practice quietly. For some reason or another it seems as if this is no longer working correctly. One of the causes of this can be bad solder joints on the circuit board where this jack is located. Another cause is a failure of the jack itself. If you are capable, Take the circuit board out and have a look. Hope this helps.

I'm having trouble with my rca whp150c wireless headphones. The power adapter doesn't seem to be getting a good connection. I push in the AC/DC adapter to the unit and the light only comes on for a split...


It sounds like you have what can be a common problem. Sometimes the receptacle (jack) that the plug goes into develops a broken solder joint which is easily repaired if you have a soldering gun or iron , some solder, patience and can get at the solder side of the circuit board. Also check for lifted circuit traces. If they are broken they can be bridged with solder and a small piece of wire if necessary. Make sure you scrape some of the insulating paint off botyh sides of the joint. Also wiggle the receptacle to see if one of the pins is broken if the solder joints look good. Replacement jacks are cheap. Just take the old one to a good electronics supplier to match one up. Hope this helps.

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.

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.

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.
