Have you tried using different headphones? If they work, then the headphones you currently have may have some faulty wiring. If different headphones do not work, then there may be something wrong with the headphone port on the iriver.
If there is a problem with the headphones, the best solution would just be to buy new ones. It is much less of a hassle and much less costly. If there is a problem with the iriver's port, it would be best to take it to an electronics store and have them find out exactly what is wrong.

Htc headphones distorted in computer


Hello,

Have you tried using your HTC headphones in the other computers?

You can also try checking the connection or the jack if it really fits in correctly.

You may want to return it to the store as soon as possible, before your warranty runs out to get a new pair. It seems to me that there was a problem with them at the factory in which they were produced.

My ipod touch plays the music, but the lyrics are distorted. Tried different earphones, but it's still the same. If I move the plug a bit, it sometimes clears up.


Sounds like a bad headphone jack. Contact Apple at 1-800-275-2273 (1-800-APL-CARE) if it's under warranty. If not, find an iPod repair company to see if they can re-solder the headphone jack.

Headphone jack seemingly screwed up


What generally happens to connectors, especially exposed to air is they oxydize.

Buy a can of "Contact Cleaner" from a local Radio Shack and spray it (through the thin tube usually provided) into the jack. One quick push, dont flood it. Take the earphone jack and insert and remove it several times, wiping off excess, which sould clear contacts and it should work normally again. If not it would have to be replaced which is no easy matter requiring an experienced Technician or Factory. Sometimes it cannot be replaced without damaging the Mother Board. This however sounds like a common problem the Contact Cleaner will fox

Cheers,

Good Luck :)

Motorola W755 2.5mm headphone adpater connectivity problem


It actually has to do with the 2.5 mm adapter. I had the same problem and went to buy a new one because I thought the adapter was bad. Went to Radio Shack and the guy said there are 4 wires within the audio input so that you can add a microphone too if you want. You have to buy an adapter that grounds that 4th microphone wire and it'll work just fine. I got the more expensive adapter (about $10) and haven't had the redial problem since.

IRiver headphone jack


By the sound of it, I think your headphone jack might be damaged by "tear and wear". In that case, there's little you can do aside getting it serviced. If its warranty is void or expired already, you MIGHT be able to repair it yourself, if you're handy with soldering iron (and, possibly a hot glue gun). However, that would require quite a precision work, patience and vigilance 'cause you could easily damage other electrical components, either by physical means or by burning them out with excess heat... if you're willing to risk it, that is.

To sum it up: you do need to service it.

Headphone jack


Try cleaning out the headphone jack with a Q-tip and a very small amount of glass cleaner or rubbing alcohol. That seemed to work for me.
