Re: Headphone jack failure
Normal repair shop can't fix it
iRiver will not send you the headphone jacks, although you can purchase a broken iRiver on Ebay and obtain jacks for this purpose - be careful - you are risking other damage to player
You must get the entire player replaced
Sorry, but this is true of nearly all Mp3 manufacturers.

The chances are your headphone socket is either dirty or broken. A few places still replace the headphone jacks on iPod Classics. A number of them advertise on eBay. Search for "iPod repair" in eBay or in Google
All the best
This problem is common with a lot of MP3 players. It is caused by excessive movement of the headphone jack and causes the headphone jack has worked loose from the circuit board. To fix this problem the MP3 player needs dismantling and the headphone jack needs resoldering onto the circuit board to get the headphone working properly.
the headphone jack would either be a 3 prong or a 4 prong. meaning it was either had 2 contacts on the headphone barrel or 3 contacts and the last prong being for ground. If you desolder the headphone jack you can easily determine this. Then you can goto a radio shack and pick one up for under 5 dollars. Problems that may come into play are is if they used a low profile jack over a standardized. But even if its 3.5mm or 2.5mm radio shack generally always sells them. You could also purchase them online. Most likely the cause is the contacts inside the headphone jack are no longer making contact with the barrel of the headphone plug. But if its not the headphone jack then it is possible the amp inside the unit has broken. also if you open the unit up determine if the solder on the headphone jack that makes the contact may have become cracked. If that is the case just heat up a soldering iron and make circles around the solder, but be careful not to spread the solder and cross connections.

ok well i am thinking that if you wiggle around the headphone jack you might get it. i believe you have a few loose solders and i hope that we have found the problem, i have a samsung yp-p2 and the headphone jack is loose and the lyrics will fade out basically and become unclear, so your headphone jack is probably loose.
Most likely the solder points inside the unit where the headphone jack attaches to the system board have come undone. If you know how to solder, you could open the unit and fix it. If that is not an option, you could resort to using the other headphone jack instead assuming it is not damaged as well.
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.
