The wiring in the cable got loose so now it no longer makes a proper contact on the capsule in the rear.  It can be fixed, it's a very simple job - all you need to do is to open the headphone and resolder the wire to the capsule.But finding a shop that would do that for less than the price for a new pair of headphones will be close to impossible in the western world.

My right ear bud wont work after like 3 weeks. i was wondering if i broke anything

I have done some research on damaging earphones and it seems to me as if you have been pulling the earphones off in an incorrect way which may put strain on the place where the wire and the right phone meet.
Thus you may have accidentally pulled the wire out of the socket slightly. I doubt you will be able to fix what has happened.

External speakers are working but headphones/earphones are not working on my computer

Maybe the headphone connector is broken. If that is correct you need to replace the motherboard. If you had connected the earphone and accidentally received a tug on the cable perhaps the earphone connector was damage.

When I plug the earphone jack into my MP4 player, I only get sound from one earpiece. I have tried several earphone sets to determine that it is not a problem with the earphones

Hi, this is a very common problem, after you have pulled the ear phones in and out a few times the solder on the earphone socket becomes brittle and breaks making you lose the connection with the circuit board, now as you have ruled out it being an earphone fault then the only possible problem could be the solder.

now sometimes if you wiggle the earphone at the part that goes into the mp3 you can sometimes get the sound working again, but this dont always work so dont rely on this,

now the problem you have is that the cost of getting this part fixed would cost a lot more than buying a new mp4 player.

the cheapest place to try and get this fixed is a tv repair shop, tell them exactly what the problem is so they dont have to test it and see how much they will charge you to resolder the earphone socket back in place properly.

that would be the cheapest option and could possibly get it working again if they will do the work for you

im sorry their is no easy fix but without getting the earphone socket re-soldered it will just never work

let me know if you need further assistance ok

The headphone jack on your PSP has died, this is actually very common, and there's not much you can do about it other then contacting Playstation and asking for a repair order.

The right earphone on my headphones stopped making noise yesterday. There is no volume coming out of it at all and right now i am listening out of my left ear only. I was able to fix the problem by pulling...

if you are techy or have a knowldge in connecting wire, then you can give a try to fix the right portion of your headphones. There was just a wire inside of your earphone which have been cut. For some instance maybe you had pull your headphones thats why the wire inside has been cut. If you can't repair then that's the time you'll need to buy.

either the speaker or the jack is out. I wonder have you tried them in more than one device. If you have and it still dosn't work. Most likely the speaker is out. your only fix is gonna be taking the earphone apart, pulling the speaker than, finding somewhere that carries one you can replace it with... or of course there is a simpler solution... Buy a new pair. Either way, Good Luck
