To all three it may be that your earphones aren't working! try it on another audio product you know... if it doesn't work get new earphones!

if not it may be the audio format... try changing it to a format the X20 can read! (mp3 and wma should work)

if its neither you're out of luck. the socket is probably the problem. if its in warranty you might get lucky and they send it to be repaired. if not really bad luck there are few specialised stores with the knowledge to repair an iriver...

Have my earphones on but can not hear music


You could try using your earphones with another device to see if they are working properly. For example, I think my earphones have a broken wire in them because when the earphone plug revolves up or down in the jack the sound cuts out. When I turn the plug around a little, the sound comes back. (I am sure you had the volume turned up :)

I have 2 different mp3 players that have been used in the car now I can't use the earphones as no sound comes out of them. They work fine in the car but I can't use them with earphones now.


If you used bluetooth to connect in the car, you may have to go back to the settings menu and reconfigure for audio jack output. If you used a direct plugin connection, try plugging your computer speakers in to the players and playing through them. If that works, your earphones may be bad.

My Philips GoGear Raga 2GB is not working properly. Its earfone jack socket is causing some problems, it doesnt give proper sound now!


The fault could be the earphone, check the earphone in a different device/player, if the fault still appears the the earphone is faulty, probably a broken wire in the cord.
If the earphone is OK then the earphone socket in the MP3 player is faulty. If may be too expensive to repair, unless you can DIY.

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

The phones are probably not reaching the bottom of the connection where the MP3 is told to stop sending sound to the speaker.

Test with other phones.

If the problem persists, a firmware update would be a good idea.
