Question about Cowon System iAUDIO X5 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Earphone socket on the Cowon iAudio XL5 30 gig.

I wonder if anyone can help me. The earphone socket on my Cowon XL5 is playing up something rotten. The sound switches from one ear then it makes a wierd noise then music I was listening disappears! I have to keep twisting it and then hold the plug up or down or try to keep the lead from moving so I can listen to my music. I know it's not the headphones I'm using coz it's working properly. Is there anywhere I can send to get it repaired or can I do it myself. I've had the Cowon for about 2years and it started to play up about 6 months ago.

Regards, vinyljunky001

    same problem, I can't get sound out of the left channel unless I push the socket connection up or down and it won't stay connected. Bloody annoying.

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

Hi. I had problem like this, now resolved. My device is iAudio 9+ otherwise it's not matter.
You can find some solutions on the web but... maybe you can not do proper result first or second time. It comes because of some differences for so lot of devices.
I used this method.
How To Recover your Bricked J3 using Tcctool iAudiophile net Forums
Only one way working for me.
1. Prepare drivers and firmwares. Tcctool and Windows drivers for USB flashmode. Latest FW for your iAudio from Cowon Korea site. Unpack all files/folders into special directory in root of your Hard Drive (c:\COWON for example).
2. Boot your PC in compatibility with non-authorised hardware mode. Press F8 button when PC loading and choose Drivers signature disabled mode.
3. Turn off your iAudio with reset button. Press both M(enu) and VolUp buttons and boot on power. Screen doesn't fire but device standing up in flashmode. Connect USB cable to device, then to PC. On Windows Device Manager you must find new Unknown Device. Install drivers manually from your specific directory.
4. Run on PC new task CMD, e.g. terminal window. Change work directory to your specific, f.e. cd c:\COWON
Run execution tcctool.exe -d cowons9 "name of your FW file"(without quotes).bin
Attention, your FW file (iaudio9P_fw.bin for me) must be in same directory with executable tcctool!
5. After flashing your iAudio must be connected to PC immediately as USB flash device. So you must copy all firmware files (named *.bin) to root of your Cowon device memory. Then reboot, your player must updating firmware and working fine. If still no, try use tcctool to boot on once more, then reboot normally. Copying FW files again doesn't required.
Hey you don't give up!

What caused my wurlitzer model no. 625 to stop playing after removing the ear phone plug I had inserted? I get electric static when turned on so I know it's getting electricity.


Well if the removing the earphone plug and the unit no longer working aren't a co-incidence? Then perhaps the earphone socket has faulted and cut off the speakers, output. You see in an earphone socket there is an additional set of contacts, that makes & breaks the line to the speaker and routes it to the earphones, often these contacts will stay open, after the plug is withdrawn. and thus stop any output from going to the speakers. Or sometimes the solder join on the PCB can break and the effect is the same.
The only way to tell is to examine the unit and check this out. As mooted before though, i do wonder if this isn't a co-incidence, and the fault is to do with something else, often these units fail in the area of the output amplifier IC's. The unit really needs to be put through the troubleshooting procedures to exactly tell. If one was to attempt a DIY, then at the least one would need to obtain a service manual, for these steps and to obtain the parts numbers to buy any spare parts.

Above is a place to assist you with a service manual, should you wish to DIY? However, Wurlitzer's are a complex device, and my professional recommendation is to get a "Quote" for any prospective repairs, from a Wurlitzer repairer.

DOSES MY IAUDIO PLAY VIDEO


Yes it does, but the screen is small and the playback rate (15 frames per second) is slow for a fast action movie.

If you really want a video player with the same audio quality as the X5L, then take a look at the A2 from Cowon.

My mp3 doesnt play music properly


This is caused by the ground connection from the earphone socket not making contact with the main PCB.

This can be repaired by anyone competent with a soldering iron.

The four contacts on the earphone socket need to be re-soldered.

IAudio X5 not recognised as removable drive


If there's no difference in the operating systems, or other software, a possibility is a faulty USB socket on the computer. Try another USB, or swap workstations... ;] hope it works out
