My ipod earphone jack will not work even after using a number of different headsets..the scarey thing about it, is that i can see an imprint at the top of the screen when i insert the headphone into the ipod with abit of force. The clicker still works, and like i said above my ipod plays music sometimes.

When I plug my earphones into the headphone jack, the sound still comes through the laptop speakers, not the earphones


Forgive if this is too simplistic, but 2 suggestions before digging into the laptop: Confirm that you are plugging into the headphone jack and not the mic jack. Second, try a different set of earphones - sometimes buds with a mic capability like for a cell phone don't respond the same as pure headset.

Input jack on my hp541 kicker headphone's sound comes and goes. I have tried multiple cables, If I wiggle the cable around it works in one speaker sometimes both.


Hi hotrodjayrod,

If the symptoms remain the same after trying another headset, this kind of fault is caused by bad solder joints in the earphone jack itself of your unit. This is due to frequent inserting and pulling the headset plug. To resolve the issue, the earphone jack must be re-soldered. You have to open the back cover of your player and using a pointed soldering iron, re-solder the joints.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

The earphone jack connection produces sound in only one ear. Partially with drawing the jack produces sound in both ears. Clearly, the jack is not making a good connection once inside its 'port'.


Hi,
This is usually the result of faulty earphones. Try replacing the earphones you are using with the ipod and it should work normally.
Good Luck!

Hi i have a 1st gen 16gb ipod touch. When i insert the earphones into the socket i either get no sound, very poor quality sound, or ok quality sound which disapears when i move. i think this is because of...


Some devices such as yours have a 4 conductor jack, (used for earphones and microphone) and most earphones have a 3 conductor plug. They are not compatible. This would be my first guess. Second is earphones and earbuds get tossed around, put into pockets, etc. The cords can get damaged, and not be visible from the outside as the wires inside are very delicate. I would try a set that works in a different device.

Earphones on my turtle beach x1's not working


Try using the headset to listen to your iPod or MP3 player. Plug the USB plug into your Xbox or PC USB port, then plug the X1 green plug into the Headphones jack on your iPod or MP3 player. Make sure the master volume is up on the X1 (inline volume control box). Play a tune on the MP3 player. Do you hear the music? If yes, the X1 is fine. If no, you should contact Turtle Beach tech support and tell them about it.

My ipod touch plays the music, but the lyrics are distorted. Tried different earphones, but it's still the same. If I move the plug a bit, it sometimes clears up.


Sounds like a bad headphone jack. Contact Apple at 1-800-275-2273 (1-800-APL-CARE) if it's under warranty. If not, find an iPod repair company to see if they can re-solder the headphone jack.
