Question about RCA H100 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Sound from headphones is messed

When the headphones are plugged all the way in to the player, the left ear is really fuzzy. If the volume is low, the left doesn't work at all. If I have the phones plugged in partially, it sounds fine. I tried cleaning it out with rubbing alcohol and q-tips and nothing. Any Ideas?

I purchased this mp3 on 11th devmber. the music is not getting through to the headphones - can you help? is it powered by a battery & is one included as standard?


Hi mharrington9,

You may want to post the make and model of your mp3 player. Someone may have solved the same problem with the same player, and would then be able to give you a more specific answer than this one;

I assume you have replaced or re-charged the battery first, and that full power to your player did not help. If so, it is likely to be a problem with the headphones, the headphone receptacle, or the amplifier inside the mp3 player;

1) Headphone problem?
Get a different set of ear-bud headphones, and try them out. If the alternative set works but your headphones do not work, it's the headphones.

1a) Large headphones, small player?
If your headphones are large, but the power of your MP3 player is small, the player may not have enough power to drive the headphone speakers. If you run your MP3 player through an additional amplifier, you may then have enough power to get sound out of your headphones.

1b) Broken wire in ear bud jack?
Most of my broken ear-bud sets have failed because one or more of the wires has broken, usually at the plug-end. There are 3 thin wires; If you break the left-channel or right-channel wire, only one earbud goes out. If you break the ground wire, both earbuds stop working, or you may hear a very faint sound at full volume. If you like to solder things, it is possible to get a new plug, cut off the old one, and solder in a new one. But it may be easier to get a new set of earbuds.

2) Broken Receptacle?

Plug your ear-buds into a different, working MP3 player. If the ear-buds work, then
Plug your MP3 into a computer through the data cable, and try to play something through the computer.
If the MP3 works through the data cable, something is wrong with the receptacle for your ear-bud plug.
You may be able to get your MP3 player replaced under warranty, since the purchase was recent. Or, if no warranty and you feel adventurous, take the back off and try to re-solder or replace the receptacle-- Though this usually ends in irreparable damage to the MP3 player :-\

3) Broken MP3 player?
If you can't get any music to play through the data cable or the computer, something is seriously wrong with the guts of the MP3 player. Try for a warranty replacement if you can.

Best of luck, mharrington9

I put the ear plugs in and nothing happens.. not


To get the basics out of the way, is the volume turned up and not muted at all... if it's turned up then try another pair of headphones that you know work in something else or test these headphones in something else...( cd player, radio etc.) use a pair that you know work to retest your mp3. plug them in, turn it on and play a song the gently wiggle the end plugged into the player back and forth. If you hear a crackling or snippets of song, then it's probably the jack inside the player....try these things and get back.
PS. post the make and model of your player, it helps with problem identification

Volume problems


If you're willing to take a risk.... theres rockbox.org download/install that. It will pump an extra 25% or more volume out.... But the layout is different and takes some getting used to...


also you can buy some better headphones... the kind that cover the whole ear and not those little ear bud things!

Check settings and look for maximum volume, this might have been changed.
otherwise your plug in your ipod is broken or both your headphones and docking station are broken.

Problems changing volume & sound horrible


Your player is flipped. It thinks that it's connected to an external device, and acts as if it in line out output. When outputing to line out, you really don't have volume control, and you hear it right with the headphones, you would be missing some amplification. Try to reverse the actions that choose line output: Press and hold BACK. The Home menu appears. Press the arrows to select the settings icon(looks like a suitcase), and then press play/pause. Press the up/down buttons to select Audio Output and press play/pause. Now you should see "line out" selected. move the arrows to another setting - headphones if available, and press play/pause. Now unless something is really wrong with your player it should work. If it doesn't, use your warranty if valid, send for repair. Good luck
