Sound works for radio not for music volume is up music is playing no sound from any headphones


Did you try plugging in a different set of headphones? If other headphones work, maybe you need new headphones.

Try playing music from your Sansa through the computer, while it is tethered. If you can do this, it may mean that the audio amplifier part of the Sansa is broken-- Usually this means, 'get another Sansa.'

Also, try gently wiggling the headphone plug to the left and right, while it is plugged in. If you get music on and off, its possible that the headphone connector on your Sansa has a broken connection. This is a VERY difficult problem to fix (without breaking or melting something else inside the case) and also usually means it is time to get another MP3 player.

Whatdo i do if my skullcandy headphones dont charge?


Are these amplifing headphones or ? Most headphones use the devices power source to make the headphones work, they use very low voltage and various ohlms to make the earpieces vibrate and make sound. If they are not working try pushing the connection in all the way, or try another set of headphones to see if the problem is with the device. Sometimes we get defective headphones right out of the box, Skull Candy is usually very reliable and quality checked before shipping, but it can happen with all manufactures. Gool Luck.

I purchased this mp3 on 11th devmber. the music is not getting through to the headphones - can you help? is it powered by a battery & is one included as standard?


Hi mharrington9,

You may want to post the make and model of your mp3 player. Someone may have solved the same problem with the same player, and would then be able to give you a more specific answer than this one;

I assume you have replaced or re-charged the battery first, and that full power to your player did not help. If so, it is likely to be a problem with the headphones, the headphone receptacle, or the amplifier inside the mp3 player;

1) Headphone problem?
Get a different set of ear-bud headphones, and try them out. If the alternative set works but your headphones do not work, it's the headphones.

1a) Large headphones, small player?
If your headphones are large, but the power of your MP3 player is small, the player may not have enough power to drive the headphone speakers. If you run your MP3 player through an additional amplifier, you may then have enough power to get sound out of your headphones.

1b) Broken wire in ear bud jack?
Most of my broken ear-bud sets have failed because one or more of the wires has broken, usually at the plug-end. There are 3 thin wires; If you break the left-channel or right-channel wire, only one earbud goes out. If you break the ground wire, both earbuds stop working, or you may hear a very faint sound at full volume. If you like to solder things, it is possible to get a new plug, cut off the old one, and solder in a new one. But it may be easier to get a new set of earbuds.

2) Broken Receptacle?

Plug your ear-buds into a different, working MP3 player. If the ear-buds work, then
Plug your MP3 into a computer through the data cable, and try to play something through the computer.
If the MP3 works through the data cable, something is wrong with the receptacle for your ear-bud plug.
You may be able to get your MP3 player replaced under warranty, since the purchase was recent. Or, if no warranty and you feel adventurous, take the back off and try to re-solder or replace the receptacle-- Though this usually ends in irreparable damage to the MP3 player :-\

3) Broken MP3 player?
If you can't get any music to play through the data cable or the computer, something is seriously wrong with the guts of the MP3 player. Try for a warranty replacement if you can.

Best of luck, mharrington9

Music only comes from the left headphone


This is a common problem with the headphone jack - if you google "ipod 30Gb headphone jack repair" there are both places that will replace the jack and places that will sell you the new "ribbon" connector and hold switch and jack (it's all one unit). If you're comfortable opening the iPod and have a TINY (#000) jeweler's philips head screwdriver you can replace the unit with no soldering. It helps if you have patience and small fingers and good light; you'll have to fasten the ribbon connector carefully. I paid under $10 for my last part but I've seen the same part for $30+, so caveat emptor. For that price they should put it in for you...

Ipod shuffle cannot hear music through headphones


Hi,

Is it really a Head phone issue? lets find out that first.
If your headphones don't work as expected or not at all, connect the headphones to another audio source, such as your computer's speaker jack or another audio device that has a 3.5 mm stereo headphone jack, and test them. If your headphones are under warranty and still don't work, you can order replacement iPod headphones - Link - https://selfsolve.apple.com/GetWarranty.do;jsessionid=1B9ED1B556F0978A6C914A52711E59AA

And about the yellow and green LEDs
The yellow LED shows when the player is charging and a blinking green LED indicates you've paused the player.
At the back is another LED, the 'Battery Status' button, just below the toggle switch; when pressed, it flashes to give you a general idea of how much battery charge remains... green indicates a full charge... yellow, a low charge... red, very low charge... and no glow means its given up its ghost.

Hope this helps :-))

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.

Ipod and headphone problem


The headphone jack on all the apple products have issues (even their laptops). There is no easy fix, other than having the jack replaced, or remounted. A common issue is that it comes loose from the pc board, especially with the movement of the headphone cord. This is a design/functionality flaw.

Hope this helps some.

Cannot hear music


The bad news is that your headphone jack is most likely shot. The soldered connections inside are most likely broken. This is not repairable generally, at least not for a cost that would be reasonable. Music will play through your computer because it can be read off your player through the USB connection. Use it as a data storage drive and buy a new one, or a used one. I've seen used T30s on Amazon for around $30 to $40.
