    I am experiencing same problem. If I do not plug in the earpiece all the way into the jack I can hear out of both. BUT if I plug it in firmly, I either get nothing, or just one side. Can anyone help?

    same problem. new earphones didn't help.

  • Pattiog May 11, 2010

    Of course I tried different earphones....I am not that silly. The odd part is if I hold it in firmly it works, or if I pull the earphones half way out it works.

Have you tried using differnt earphones? if the problem is still the same with different earphones then it's the ipod itself that has a problem, you'll have to get it fixed.

My ipod crackles and my hearing seems to be getting damaged

Id say you should go see a doctor. But for now id say that you should do your best to not listen to it for a while as it can affect hearing. try to use full on speakers if you can. On you tube there are a few Sub-Woofer sound tests you can do. Try playing one (low volume) and repeat. (not a song one) also to hear which frequencies are out of range to you click here. ( click the second icon on the list further down the page)

But yeah go see a doctor. Perhaps some ear drops.

Left side of earphones don't work

I have the same problem as well. you just have to take the headphones out, and not put them in all the way. just put them in partway, wait until you can hear out of both.

Right earphone wont work.

It is very likely that the problem is in your MP3 player and not your ear phones. If it is still under guarentee, then take it back to where you bought it. If not it may be that the earphone jack plug is faulty? It is a trade off between the cost of repair against the cost of a new one. These things are often glued together so opening it could break it anyway - sorry

Only one headphone works and its not the headphones but the player thats doing it

Your earpiece device could be faulty and needs a replacement

Try this steps to detect which could be the fault.

1. Take another earpiece andf insert it on your device. if you pick the sounds clearly on both sides then the former earpiece is bad. But if the problem still persist then get a technician to look at the earpiece port on your device.

Yes, if you changed headphones and it is still happening, it's almost surely a problem with your iPod's jack. I think the warranty is 1 year only, so you should get it repaired asap.

Dell mp3 problem

On the left side next to the jack, there is a screw. Take a small screw driver and tighten the screw. On mine, I had the same problem, then was messing around one night and discovered that the screw controlled the pins inside the jack. Hopefully that helps.
