I figured that that the earphones were pretty old, so if my 'repair' didn't work I would just replace them with new ones. There is a groove filled with acoustic foam that runs right around each earcup that terminates at the cord's entry point. After removing the headband yoke by carefully popping it out of each earcup I simply gripped both sides of the earcup and applied outward pressure until the front and back halves separated. Fortunately they are held together by plastic clips that snap apart. Once I had located the fault in the cable and repaired it the earcup halves easily snapped back into place. I now have a functioning set of headphones again!

Need replacement part for JVC receiver built in 1996 (part #VWF1219-16TTB) FFC

My search shows "no longer available" and you'll probably not like my alternative fix. Buy a spool of small diameter (24 AWG) solid core wire (wire wrap wire is great for these repairs) and hand solder the connections from point A to point B. I've done these repairs for both broken ribbon cables and cracked PC boards but I was younger back then, could see better and was a bit more steady with an iron.

Well my earphones .. one side is not working which is the right ide it used to work when wiggling the wire but now even when wiggling wire it does not work . ??

Broken wire on jack. To fix it, you'll need to cut it open and solder in a new jack. The wires are usually so fine that it'll be difficult to strip; you might want to invest in a new pair of headphones instead.

The left speaker or controlling speaker has no ... very little sound.. the right one is working. I have them hooked up to a computer with the earphone jack which splits into right and left jacks.

Right click on your volume icon at the taskbar, & open your volume control. Check if the Master Volume - "balance" is at the center!!

Check your speaker connecting cables are securely plug in.

Hope it helps.

My fuses keep blowing in my behringer mx 2442a power supply

Fuses usually blow for a good reason - because something else is wrong.
A fuse may go once if it is just a bit old but if changing a fuse twice has not solved the problem then there is some sort of electrical fault that you need to trace. It could be
  • a short circuit - maybe a crack in the insulation in the cable somewhere - most likely point is where the cable enters or exits the power supply and is subject to a lot of flexing or where it joins the coil windings inside the transformer.
  • too much equipment connected to the power supply overloading it
  • an open circuit or failed component causing- too low a resistance allowing too much current to flow
  • a cable or component somewhere in the power supply that has too high a resistance for the current to flow causing a build up of heat at the weakest point - the fuse.
Unless the fault is something obvious like a broken wire it may just be a case of replacing the power supply

The earphone socket does not deliver constant sound. Can I replace the socket or can it be repaired?

You can replace the earphone socket or also you can replace the wires. But make sure with a multimeter check on the earpiece L&R, the correct fault, continuity of the wires before the sockets is changed.
Buy the right pin and solder with care.

How do I connect old jensen speakers to a technics m222 duel cassette deck

You have to send your signal out through an amplifier of course. The amplifier is what has the "speaker out" jacks on it's back. The cassette deck and the amplifier have connections through low-level signal cables (patch cords) which are ususally 3 or 6 feet par of cables which are red and white (referencing right and left signal channels).
An alternative is the hook earphones to your jack on the front to listen to if you do not have an amplifier to connect to.
