There is no fix for that. They will need to be sent to Shure for repairs. Contact Shure Service.

There was a fix for mine my right hand side was only just audible and the left around half volume I got some electronic contact spray cleaner and took off the ear buds and sprayed the contact cleaner directly into the tube part of the headphone. There was an immediate improvement but still not quite right and so I did it again and now once again my Shure 345's are sounding perfect. I can only think that there was a build up of dirt actually inside the unit and the contact cleaner removed it. I hope that this works for others and doesn't actually destroy the earphone but as mine were unusable any way I had little to lose.

Hello my Hoover works well except it is has gotten very, very loud it wasn't this loud before any suggestions?

Not knowing what the loud sound is, try to determine if it's coming from the spinning brushes or the motor. Those are the most likely problems.

What is the cause of the earphone and speaker malfunctioning in the Samsung galaxy pocket and how do i fix that?

Your speaker/mic may have gotten damaged, that often happens to me if mine gets wet. Mine will usually go away after a few days, and if you know it got somewhat wet, try the soaking in rice trick.

Nosound from earphones onGalaxzy 4 tablot

what did you clean them with ? water?, bad move. you should only clean your electronics with acceptable electronic cleaning solutions,
or Rubbing Alcohol on a lint free wipe very lightly saturated then swing the cloth around in the air for a few second to make sure its not dripping wet, but very lightly damp. then make sure all units are off with no current flowing through. also make sure that you DO NOT turn them on straight after let them dry completely. ( when applied to items should see a streaking not an overall wetness.(if overall wet, you've used to much) drying time is based on wetness.) Use hair dryer if necessary.
Good Luck, try the dryer on the headphones. including the tablet plug in area. you might have gotten water in it.too!

Keyboard got wet

The best thing to do with any electronics that have gotten wet is to remove any power source and allow it to dry thoroughly (letting it sit for several days in a dry area). The last thing you want to do is apply power to electronics that are wet, as it will most likely permanently damage them and cause failures (sometimes only intermittent).

If the dsi xl has gotten wet is it completely lost?

Let it dry out for about 3 days. One way is to put it in a container with uncooked white rice. The rice should soak up some of the moisture. It should work fine after its been dried out.

Sweat got into earbud- sound very faint

That happens because the water and saline solution in the sweat are causing the wires inside the earbud shorting to each other, or shorting to the earbud casing that is grounded.

Let the earbud dry out in few hours or more, if the problem does not go away, then get replacement heaphones, it means that oxide formation on the contacts is causing a short.

Do not use shorted hearphones they can cause damage to the connected device.

Shure in-ear phone

I plugged the earphones in another mp3 player and they worked fine. So the interruption of sound must be in the connection between the Mp3 and earphone plug. So the earphone wiring gets a verdict of not guilty. I will do some experiments involving the female plug on the original mp3 player. That is where the problem is.
