Question about Sony Network Walkman NW-A1200 MP3 Player

1 Answer

No sound My headphone jack doesn't work. If I plug in some headphones, and push them down and turn them, I may be lucky enough to get a few flickers of static and sound. Its as if the 3.5mm jack is too big for the headphones. Any advice?

Ihome won't play ipod, even after resetting ipod I have de same problem. I got an itouch 2nd generation and docked it on a speaker that supports it. It worked fine for two or three hours, but suddenly it...


Welcome to the wonderful world of the iHome frying the Ipod.
Your iHome, has most likely fried the mainboard on your ipod.
to check plug a usb into the ipod and connect to the computer.
if it comes up disconnect the usb and try a headphones in the jack.
if it doesn;t play sound its fried and you will need a new mainboard.
if it does play through the headphone jack, your lucky and keep it off the dock.

I have fixed at least 30 ipods taken out by ihome docks and other docks.
they are terrible for the ipod. Even Apple sells the docks on their website
that shows how much they care about the product.

If this helps leave a vote on fixya

Headphone jack does not make a good connection


I have a couple of these players and have found that some headphones do this and some do not, maybe try a different pair and see if they fit any better, if the player is new you could think about returning it.

Loose headphone jack


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$)

My ipod doesnt only works out of one headphone.


HI,
I actually had the exact same problem with my ipod touch. It's actually not a problem with the headphones but with the headphone jack on the ipod. For a while i "solved" this problem by wrapping my headphone wires twice around my ipod [so it was tight and the sound could be heard, the same way u do it by pushing it with ur finger]. Well one day my ipod jack just fixed itself, I got lucky. But my advice to you is to send it into apple like my friend who had the same problem did, they sent him a new one [hopefully u have a warrenty!]
hope that helped!!..thank you!!..

RCA OpAL MP3 player


My son had a similar issue with his. It turned out that he had damaged the headphone/charger/download/upload jack. There was no way to easily fix it, but we were able to return it to Wal-mart for another one. Why they decided to use this jack for so many different functions, I have yet to figure out. It's really a poor design for an otherwise nice mp3 player. If you can't take it back where you bought it, you are pretty much out of luck, unless you're handy enough to take the player apart and replace the jack. Sorry.

Headphone jack


try reseting it to factory settings. in other words recovery mode. to do this simply plug it into your computer. Next, puh the hold button until the orange is showing. Now you want to push AND hold down the record button AND the power button at the same time. after a few short seconds, a black screen should come up and say welcome to recovery mode. it may take a few tries to put it into recovery mode by the way. if this doesn't work you will have to take it to where you bought it becuase it's probably the headphone jack is most liley damaged. if it's damaged buy a new one cheap here. www.ebay.com If you need more resources about recovery mode or of you have more questions, here is a link to the sansa e200 series forums. http://forums.sandisk.com/sansa/ i hope this helped you. : )

Ipod head phone jack no good


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!
