Hi alot of people have had this problem but as you didnt buy it new then you cant send it back to them as they would have repaired this for free if it was you who brought it.
It points to one of two problems as you say some of the keys are not working also then this could be a sign that the mp4 has got damp or wet at some stage causing the terminals to corrode this could be solved by removing the case and cleaning the contacts behind the buttons.
Taking it apart isnt easy and you could easily destroy it completely as for the ear phones not working i know you said it works fine in a different device but it is still worth buying a cheap set of ear phones just to bw 100% sure as they only cost pennys nowadays.
If you still have the problem after trying this then i would say that its either the damp or wet problem again with coroded connections shorting on the ear phone jack or it could be that it needs the two contacts resoldering but this isnt a job for someone who has never done this repair before as you can ruin it all together ok.
Sorry their is no easy fix but hopefully you get the sort of idea what the problem could be anyway let me know if you need further assistance ok

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

This is caused by the grounding connection on the earphone socket becoming disconnected, either due to faulty earphones or poor soldering.

If changing the earphones does not work, then the only fix is to dismantle the player and re-solder the headphone socket connections.

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.

Earphone socket on the Cowon iAudio XL5 30 gig.


try to send it back to Cowon company, or try to solder the joints, inside the mp3 player most likely it is at the top of the mp3 player, but know what your doing otherwise it can be destroyed, if you don't repair it the right way

Mp4 ear phones


hi the problem will be with the earphones after a bit of use the wires inside the plastic casing covering the wires where they plug into the mp4 these wires fray and eventually short out it is best to replace the earphones as soon as possible as shorting out will eventually cause the mp4 to overheat and short out.
If you have replaced the earphones and are still getting the same problem then it will be the solder points on the jack plug that you plug the earphones into the solder eventually will work lose causing bad connection but first repalce earphones then if you still have the problem but you probanly wont as the solder failing isnt a known problem with this product then you will need to take the cases off and get to the board where the earphone socket is soldered onto the board then you need to resolder the solder joint that connect it to the board.
But first repalce earphone with new ones as using someone elses or old ones might have same problem let me know if you need further assistance

Won't play the Voices in the songs


one side of any earphones (we've checked and it isn't the earphones) doesn't work. It does work if you press down on the plug in or hold it to one side.
