    I had my mp3 for almost a year and this problem recntly started about 3-4 months ago. I noticed the left side of my headphones didn't work. I tried 3 sets of headphones until i realized it wasn't the headphones I need an answer. It's a great mp3 but this is the only problem.

My samsungs Yp-p2 headphone in-put is borken. It wont let me hear the music thats playing on the mp4 unless i hold the headphone jack in a certain position i the head phone i-put? PLz help


Yo. Your guys problem is the headphone jack. Once it cracks, this situation happens. It's really easy to crack because the headphone jack part is alone in the YP P2. You just need to go to a samsung shop and get this repaired. Not expensive at all. haha Oh and when you get it fixed, tell them to put a plastic part beside it to try preventing it from happening.

ITouch 2nd g only plays music throuhg left side of all headphones


Try playing with the headphone plug, until you can also hear the right
channel and also try a different set of headphones as it is probably a
matter of an intermittent headphone jack, or plug, owing to sudden
snatching of the headphone plug from same, a very common problem.

Eliminate this cause before submitting your Touch for much more
expensive remedies

Samsung yp k5j radio doesnt work


You have to plug in the headphones. The head phones act as an antennae, therefore you need to be plugged in. YOu can still listen through the speakers, but keep the head phones plugged in.

MP3 PLAYERS ARE MADE CHEAPLY!


I have one that had the same problem. I solder the jack back on but noticed that the solder pad came off the circuit board. Look at the circuit board and find the component where the connection from the solder pad leads. Using a piece of wire you should be able make a new connection. even after Soldering the jack back on, check to see if the pads inside the jack are bulging out enough to connect to the headphones. The constant wear and tear from rocking the headphone jack back and forth is what causes it to "brake". Could happen when its on your pocket.

Hi, my sansa e250 has sound come out of only one head phone no matter how many headphones i try the same happens


The jack in the e250s is not made of adamantium, so it can actually go bad; however, if you try different headphones and thus determine that either:
  - All the headphones simultaneously went bad in one side
  - Your left ear has issues
  - The Sansa is only cranking out one channel; and
     -the jack feels a little off, or
     -perfectly good mp3s are being played off-balance; AND the balance has not been misconfigured in Settings.

...well then, the plot's moving forward and you can get your ear fixed, or stop the cat from killing your headphones, or re-load Sansa or Rockbox.org firmware, or fix the Settings, or see to the appropriate repair to the jack (depending on your warrantee status and skill with soldering irons and ordering off Jameco.com etc.)

Only hearing sound out of the right earbud...


The solder joint for the left channel has probably come unstuck from the pcb.
