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.

Can't get headphones to work on this unit


Aux-in jack is used to play another device such as an Ipod or other sources through your Jensen player, using it as some sort of an amplifier. Look for another port on your Jensen player that says "audio out" or "Spkr" (means speakers) to plug in her headphones. If you can't find any of these ports then you might have purchased a n actual boom box, which does not have the capability to play through headphones, sorry about that.

My headphones jack is broken i've tried to plug my headphones into the jack but it is not working at all please help!


This really is a common fault with most pc's ,a few years ago it was this and theold ps2 mouse sockets that would fail.
If you can take it apart very carefully and gently find the fault broken connection wires/solderd points .You could repair it yourself.
almost as common as this problem is the jack plug on your headphones they fail more times than mr singh and the a-level examiners daughter,to coin a corrupt phrase!

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

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.

No sound after pluging in headphones


Not unless you know how to work on a headphone jack and how the jack and the jack switchs work??? Also if you dont know about the HI Voltage saftey issues, it would be best for you to bring this set to a pro tech, as it shouldnt cost to much for a new headphone jack??. Good Luck
