Question about Sony MDR-G42LP Consumer Headphones

Left Headphone not working

This has happened before with the same model of headphones, only the left headphone stopped working after a year or so. With this new pair, it stopped working after 3 months or so. Sound comes only out of the right headphone and not the left.

Actually, if you open it up, you can sometimes see the problem easier. It may be one of two problems. The first would be that the wiring inside of the little rubber bits aren't connected properly.
The second may be that the wiring got loose of the solder, and you may need to re-solder it back.
Hope this helps.

Loose parts inside one headphone....?


The solution may be to open up the headphones and find out exactly what went wrong inside. It could be simply a loose or broken connection or something more serious related to that rattle.

Only 1 side of my dr dre detox is working


THE INTERNAL WIRE CONNECTING BOTH HEADPHONES IS BROKEN. THIS PROBABLY HAPPENED WHEN TWISTING ONE OF THE HEADPHONES TO HEAR ONLY THROUGH ONE OF THEM. TRY FEEDING EEACH HEADPHONE INDEPENDENTLY WITH ITS OWN CABLE USING ONE OF THOSE PLUGS TO SHARE MUSIC FROM SAME SOURCE.

Sony MDR-J10, left headphone not working ,probably having some wire defect, Has been working fine for me since last 3 years . please contact me for more information


I found one for $5.95 including postage listed on eBay.
If you like that model, that is a way to replace it.
Or buy another headphone locally.
It is just not worth repairing

My left headphone stopped working after a year or so. How can i fix this?


The copper wires inside the cable have broken. Since you don't know where the break occurred all you can do is to open the left headphone, remove the speaker, cut a piece of the cord and resolder it to the speaker. Test it, if it's fixed just put the headphone back together. If not, cut another piece. If you must cut more than a third of the cable to get it working then it's dead, just buy a new pair.

Wire broke right next to headphone jack; any easy way to fix?


if you are not handy, then no.
repair will require disassembly of the ear piece, splicing of the wire, and reassembly.

No sound coming out of the left speaker


It sounds like you have a break in your cord right where it joins the plug. You will either have to replace the plug or buy new headphones.
