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.

    One fixed by re-soldering all the legs on the headphone jack :) :) The other might have worked but I broke one of the tiny connecting wires when I was trying to put it back together :( :( Still one working MP3 player is better than none!

Onkyo tx-552 With NO head phones in use the unit will go one mode to stereo and stay there till you press wher the head phones plug in, it then goes back to other mode.


It sounds to me like you have dodgy contacts on the headphone socket. Servisol Video 40 cleaning solution sprayed into the headphone hole might solve it of it's dust that's causing the problem. Otherwise soldering or a new socket might be needed. It's possible you have a bad solder joint. So when you press it makes contact! Try resoldering before replacement.

When I turn my yamaha YPT-320 on the panel lights up for 2 seconds then turns of any ideas


MY guess would be one of 2 things.

1) Power adapter faulty
2) Socket where adapter plugs in has a bad solder joint.

Turn on the keyboard and push the plug on the back of the keyboard up ( hold in upright position ) if it doesn't shut down / or alternatively doesn't work investigate solder connections to pcb for the socket. They often fail and break the track on the pcb. Repair as needed

At the time only one speaker is working untill twisting the pin


This problem could be a faulty head phone socket in the MP3 player or the head phones itself.
Try a different head phone in your MP3 player and if the problem is still present then the head phone socket in the MP3 player is faulty or it may only need the socket re-soldering on the circuit board.

Television sound was intermitent but now gone


Hi I am Vortash .. sounds like it could be dry solder joints on the circuit or the final speaker drive board , if you are O fae with electronics and can do this yourself .. check with a spyglass for rings or cracks around the component legs on the solder side of the circuit board and re solder to eliminate , you may find a gentle tap on the board will bring the sound back on this would confirm dry joints , however it could be the audio IC defunct or the output caps also .So maybe a visit to the engineers is needed in this case .for an free estimate on the cost of repair . . regards Vortash

Music on Mp4 wont pla through head phones,it only


Hi, the problem is going to be with the solder on the headphone socket this isnt the kind of job a novice can do and you would need specialist soldering and testing equipment to ensure that is the cause of the problem.

What you can do is check that the head phone socket has not got anything stuck inside it like fluff or small piece of paper, failing that you would have to take it into your nearest electrical repair shop.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

My MP3 suddenly only plays in one ear piece (speaker side) I bought a new pair of heads phones and it is still the same. What's happened ?


Notice the plug is sectioned into two or three bits by black lines? Each section corresponds to a 'connection' within the jack--one for each of the stereo channels

If you are pushing the earphone plug deep enough into the jack to make contact with the respective sockets and are still not getting all (both) channels, most likely one of the wires connected to the jack (socket) or the corresponding circuit (board) has either shorted out or is no longer connected.
If you can open the device, look for a thin red or black wire that is no longer connected/soldered. Splice it or re-solder it.

Failing that, the jack itself may have cracked (due to excessive bending when you insert the plug).

Lock up


Sounds like the ground connection (-ve) to the earphone socket is broken.

When you plug in the earphones, they ground through the control section on the board. Poor sound is another sympton of this problem.

If you have any soldering experience, dismantle the player, and re-solder the 4 connections to the headphone socket.
