I have the exact same problem and went to the applestore to ask what solutions they suggest. either you can buy an adapter which goes in the bottom of the ipod and has the necessary headphone equipment. propably best to go to www.apple.com and look at the accessories. another solution is to send it to www.ipodrepairs.com. unfortunaley there are no solutions which are for free.

Well Aiwa stereos are very hard to open and designs to break when opening, however some models can be opening without too much issue.
So before you try to open the item, try these if you have some switch cleaner or alcohol tape head cleaner - put a little drop onto the headphone jack and insert and move around the socket just incase there is dirt on the contacts inside, also clean the tape head too just incase of the same,
if not then its an open up, sometime the solders come loose, so with a soldering iron just warm the solders up a little this may fix it.
if this does not it may be a broken part inside the jack - they can be replaced but not easy - spares can be got from ebay from china, for about 1.00gbp
Get a round toothpick, break off the sharp end and put a small dab of "Crazy Glue" on the end of the cut off toothpick.
Then insert the toothpick into the head phone jack hole till it touchs the ball, wait approximatly 1 minute and pull the toothpick with the ball out of the head phone jack.
Be sure not to touch the sides of the head phone jack hole with the "Crazy Glue" .
Good luck, I hope this helped
Please rate me, Thank you
there is a broken solder joint where it is on the pc board.it is not the earbud itself,because when you pull it out,both sides work.the jack has 3 sections,the tip which is one side,the next piece,which is the other side,and the shank piece which is the ground.the ground connects to the outside ring of the headphone jack.there are 2 contact points inside for the two channels.what happens is the copper foil of the pc board fractures where the pins are soldered.scrape away some of the foil so that copper is exposed for the pins,and resolder it and it will work if you wiggle the jack,you will see the whole piece of circuit board move where it is cracked.after fixing it,put epoxy over the area to make it stronger.
if there isn't screws to take the MP3 player apart then their are clips on the inside
Unscrew the screws (or if you have clips from the on/off switch use a screw driver to open it. this isn't the most safest way to open it i could break so this is a last opption.) ussing a sodering iron resoder the conection between the loose headphone jack and the curcit board.
(you can pick up a sodering iron at Radio shack for as low as 10$)
Unfortunately - that is a common problem with mp3 players - the headphone jack itself is damaged (check a 2nd set of headphones just to be sure). Philips does not sell the headphone jack by itself, so it looks like it's replacement time - I would call Philips and see how much it would cost to replace the whole player (won't be much more than 100$ even if out of warranty). If you wanted to try to work with the existing player, you could twist the headphones until you find a position where both sides work - then keep it in that place, and don't move around too much.
i had the same problem, the headphone jack on the sansa is loose. I opened it all up, and saw that one of the connections on the headphone jack was loose. you can sauter it and it should work clearly again.
I agree with Solution 5. The copper pins in the jack that make the connection to your headphone plug are bent in such a way that they are springy and will make a good tight connection to the plug. When those copper connections get worn, they are not so springy and they bend inward causing you to lose audio on one side of your headphones unless you wiggle the plug and find that sweet spot that makes a connection. Then you have to hold the wire to keep pressure on it... it gets annoying.
You can open the case and there are slots in the headphone jack that you can get a hook scribe (like the dentists use) or safety pin to bent those copper connections back out. Don't bend them too far or they will break. You can also pick get a new part for $25 or a used part much cheaper. Once you iPod is open, it's a matter of a couple screws and a ribbon cable to replace the jack. Problem solved!
