Well opening your laptop would not be an easy job. You might damage it because to get to where you can solder it you have open it up.

I suggest that you can buy this usb adapter and you will have earphone and mic.

Sound does not transfer from laptop to earphones when they are plugged in. Tested earphone and test was good. How do I get the sound to come out of the earphones instead of laptop?


I would guess there is a fault with with the earphone jack socket, the soldering to the printed circuit board or perhaps some of the electronic components that might or might not provide attenuation and/or tone correction for the earphones.

Probably be a cheaper cure to use bluetooth.

I use a usb FM transmitter so my sound files can be played on any nearby FM radio.

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!

No matter what set of head phones i plug into to my lyra rca mp3 player the left ear phone won't play anything


Hi,

Most of this symptoms is a caused by bad solder joints on the earphone jack of the player. The unit must be take apart and re-solder the joints of the earphone jack. You need a pointed soldering iron to do this. If the symptoms still persist, the fault is in the audio circuitry. You must sent it in because this is not DIY, parts are too small and surface mounted.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!

Can I replace plug on my Denon overear headphones


If the cord is broken at the plug, most standard sub-mini,mini phone plugs can be replaced by someone with a little skill at soldering ( a ohm meter also helps). Get a replacement stereo plug like the old one (often at Radio shack or any electronic parts store). Cut off the old plug and carefully strip off the outside insulation back about 1/4". Note there is 3 conductors. The webbing around the 2 wires goes to the outside back end of the plug. This is the ground or common wire for both sides. This wire may have a non conducting coating on it which needs to be stripped off before you solder it to the plug. There is 2 other wires in the cord. one (often red) is the right channel and the other is the left. You can check which channel is the right side with a meter or a AA battery. DON'T try to check with the earphones on your head!! The right 'hot' side will go to the tip of the plug and the left side goes to the ring next to the tip. Don't forget to strip off the insulation of the wires by gently scraping them with a sharp knife or razer blade. Also don't do like I sometimes do and forget to put the collar or back piece on the wire before you solder the wires on the plug. Hope this helps.

What can I do to fix a cable issue in my headphone? The right side doesn't work unless I move around the wire attached to the headphone.


Hi, what makes oneofthe earphones not to work,is because the wire inside the right side of the earphone hascut and will need to soldered back to it's position.

Open the right side of the earphone,and use a soldering iron and a lead to put back the wire properly.
after put back the wire,problem solved.

When I plug the earphone jack into my MP4 player, I only get sound from one earpiece. I have tried several earphone sets to determine that it is not a problem with the earphones


Hi, this is a very common problem, after you have pulled the ear phones in and out a few times the solder on the earphone socket becomes brittle and breaks making you lose the connection with the circuit board, now as you have ruled out it being an earphone fault then the only possible problem could be the solder.

now sometimes if you wiggle the earphone at the part that goes into the mp3 you can sometimes get the sound working again, but this dont always work so dont rely on this,

now the problem you have is that the cost of getting this part fixed would cost a lot more than buying a new mp4 player.

the cheapest place to try and get this fixed is a tv repair shop, tell them exactly what the problem is so they dont have to test it and see how much they will charge you to resolder the earphone socket back in place properly.

that would be the cheapest option and could possibly get it working again if they will do the work for you

im sorry their is no easy fix but without getting the earphone socket re-soldered it will just never work

let me know if you need further assistance ok

Only one earphone works and its not the problem of earphones


if the earphones are fine then it is usually a problem with the audio jack. Either the contacts that push on the barrel of the earphone plug have gotten worn out or a connection that is soldered to the board has become bad.
In this case you really have one of 2 options How long have you owned the unit.. if it is still under warranty then have it repaired under warranty by the manufacturer. If it is not under warranty call Apple and ask them how much to get it repaired then base out if it is worth to pay to get it repaired or is it worth buying a new or used product of the same caliber. But id say in my experience its worth it to have them repair it. its actually not that hard to solder on a new headphone connector just takes someone with alot of skills and the tools to be able to desolder the old one and put a new one on.
if you need further assistance i will be here to help. Thanks and have a good day.

Battery replacement norelco t7500 shaver


If you know how to solder, it's easy to replace the rechargeable battery in the Norelco T7500 shaver, thanks its beautiful mechanical design: You just remove the single screw at the bottom, and the entire charging circuit board & battery simply slides out, still attached to the shaver by a folded ribbon cable!
Then, you just pop off the plastic shields, unsolder the battery, and solder in a new AA 1.2V NiCd solder-tail battery. Or, you can use a higher-capacity AA NiMH battery for a longer run-time, at the expense of fewer recharge cycles for NiMH.
In either case, dispose of old NiCd batteries properly: They contain cadmium, which is an environmental poison!

Mp4 ear phones


hi the problem will be with the earphones after a bit of use the wires inside the plastic casing covering the wires where they plug into the mp4 these wires fray and eventually short out it is best to replace the earphones as soon as possible as shorting out will eventually cause the mp4 to overheat and short out.
If you have replaced the earphones and are still getting the same problem then it will be the solder points on the jack plug that you plug the earphones into the solder eventually will work lose causing bad connection but first repalce earphones then if you still have the problem but you probanly wont as the solder failing isnt a known problem with this product then you will need to take the cases off and get to the board where the earphone socket is soldered onto the board then you need to resolder the solder joint that connect it to the board.
But first repalce earphone with new ones as using someone elses or old ones might have same problem let me know if you need further assistance

I can only hear out of one ear of my ear phones and sometimes I hear no sound at all


Perhaps you can open the player and solder the head socket it may have some dry joints there.
