Repair to Headphones jack plug

I have a Worldtech MP4 player. It works fine, but the jack plug point took a knock a while ago and it only plays in stereo if you apply pressure to the jack-plug. Can it be fixed?

Yes it can at a cost if im right you knocked it while head phones were in ? if so look down the hole of the jack you will see a small flat peace of metal with a wach screw driver gently force the metal out in order to make a contact

The most common problem when you have to apply "pressure" to the plug to get sound to come thru is that the soldered connections to the internal jack have been detached. If you dont know how to solder a connection, you need to take your player to a service center. AT YOUR OWN RISK, open the case and CAREFULLY re solder the connections at the sides of the jack. this must be done with as LITTLE AS POSSIBLE amount of solder, too much and you will make an unwanted connection and possibly ruin the player.

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

Keep your mp4 player turned OFF while charging and keep it in for an hour. Let it charge up. If that doesn't work something else will - Follow these directions carefully!

1. GENTLY hold your Craig MP4 player in hand. 2. Walk over to window and hold it near sunlight for 2 minutes. 3. Shake it gently 3 times. 4. GENTLY place it down and wait 2 minutes. 5. Grab mp4 player and smash it into trash can.

Voila! Problem solved!

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.
