Either the left headphone is shot or the headphone jack is messed up. Try a different set of head phones if its same result see about replacing the jack.

Hello, My left headphone are not working, meaning, no audio. Is there a way I can fix this? If so, how (step by step for Dummies please)


The headphone may be faulty - may have a broken wire leading to the left headphone.
Try a different headphone to see if this headphone is OK, if so the the other headphone is faulty.
If this headphone is also does not work on the left headphone then the MP3 player phone jack is faulty and either the phone jack needs replacing or it needs resoldering onto the circuit.
This is not a job for a Dummy, you need a friend who knows electronics.

Music only comes from the left headphone


This is a common problem with the headphone jack - if you google "ipod 30Gb headphone jack repair" there are both places that will replace the jack and places that will sell you the new "ribbon" connector and hold switch and jack (it's all one unit). If you're comfortable opening the iPod and have a TINY (#000) jeweler's philips head screwdriver you can replace the unit with no soldering. It helps if you have patience and small fingers and good light; you'll have to fasten the ribbon connector carefully. I paid under $10 for my last part but I've seen the same part for $30+, so caveat emptor. For that price they should put it in for you...

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

MY head phone jack on my mp3 player doesnt work but only when I move the jack around but only the left side. Any ideas?


This may seem like a silly question but, have you tried a different set of head phones? A lot of the time this is caused by normal wear and tear on the wires in the headphones. Its usually around the jack because this is where most of the stress is placed on the wires. We take for granted the fact that the cables bend so freely and forget that its still metal in there and all metal is susceptible to fatigue. You bend it enough times it breaks. Hopefully that helps.

Sound only on left side. tried earbuds and head phones


Hey markallen407,

If you've tried several different pairs of headphones and have encountered the same problem with every pair, you could possibly be looking at a defective headphone jack. In some cases when headphones are unable to make a secure connection within the jack, they may only receive an audio signal through one of the two speakers.

Unfortunately, this means that you may want to seek repairs on your iPod at this time. If you are still covered under the manufacturer's warranty, I would strongly suggest contacting Apple first for more information or further assistance. Many manufacturers may be able to provide faster solutions than third-party service facilities for problems with their products, but remember that it may be necessary to ship your iPod out for repairs.

Additionally, please keep in mind that you may always bring your iPod to your local Best Buy™ store for service. Geek Squad® agents are able to provide support for most products we sell, and can even honor existing factory warranties for products that were purchased through other retailers.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Audio only plays from left headphone


The contacts inside the headphone jack are made of a springy metal there is one for the left and one for the right speakers. This happened to my Blackberry and I took it apart and got inside the jack block and re-sprung the contacts. It worked for me... I used a dental pick.

Audio problem


nope it never hurts to ask as in this case it seams theres a common problem where the headphone jack has a cold solder connection on the pc board or its broken loose from the pc board itself. Now unless you get instuctions on how to open this unit do not attemt to try!! as its all plastic locking tabs and you need to know where to press to realease these tabs .. I would contact www.samsung.com or call them and see what they have to say as there is probably a flat rate they charge to fix these units
