Okay, so I have these headphones, Sony MRD-Q33, I LOVE these headphones, they are great, but the left speaker won't work unless I position the jack that plugs into my ipod in a really weird way. I really want to fix these, suggestions?

If you plug in headphones, do you have sound in them? If so, then the problem is either the built-in speaker or the headphone jack. If it's the speaker, then you're in for a pretty involved fix involving soldering little tiny wires. Do-able, but not for someone just learning how to use a soldering iron.
If it's the jack, then you might get lucky and fix it by inserting and then removing your headphone's plug.
I've had this style of jack get a bit of dust in it before, and basically think headphones are plugged in even when they're not.
Let me know if you've got sound in headphones, and we can take it from there.
you can check if you speaker is broken by using a set of headphones. if you don't hear sound when using your headphones there is something wrong with your software settings. if you do hear sounds using your headphones you need to replace your speaker. You can buy a replacement speaker on ebay and do this yourself, of search for someone to do if for you.
If you still have warranty on your phone just return it to the shop that sold the phone.
I had this problem as well. I would get sound from headphones but unplugging them I had no sound from the builtin speaker.
When you plug in your headphones it moves a thin piece of metal in the jack which interrupts a connection (this is a good thing) so it can know when to disable the internal speaker. When you unplug your headphones the piece of metal moves back and it enables the internal speaker again.
I was able to fix this by taking apart my x51v and bending the piece of metal a little while the headphones are plugged in so that it will contact better when the headphones are unplugged,
To take your axim apart there are 4 screws on the back underneath the rubber grips that you need to take out. Then you can just slide a finger nail up and down each side to remove the front and back of the casing. The back you will need to swing out from the bottom since it hooks over the headphone jack. I unplugged the small wire that connects the front half of the case to the guts using a tiny flat screwdriver.
Inside on the back, there is a black plastic plate that is held on by 4 more screws. Take that off.
Now you can see the headphone jack. I plugged in my headphones and used a small flat screwdriver to push against the headphone jack on the bottom piece of metal on the right side with the axim face down. You can observe the piece I mean by looking at the side of the headphone jack when you plug and unplug headphones. It moves perhaps 1/32 of an inch.
Your goal is to bend the piece of metal closer to where it is when no headphones are plugged in. The only way to bend it properly is to do it when the headphones are in.
Sorry if this isn't clear enough. I'm not sure if this is a permanent fix or not but it's worked for me.
I went to www.sony.com, clicked on customer support, typed in the model number of my headphones, and then clicked on the "operation" link. A PDF file came up and told me exactly step by step how to use my headphones.
Normally it should get detected automatically.. There is seperate volume for inbuilt speaker and headphones. So in your case have you checked the volume control status after connecting the headset? in taskbar as well as in the audio manager...??
hey i had exactly the same problem i kinda found the solution to fix it do the following:- dial a number and start talking to that person while in the call switch to speakerphone use a speaker phone for about 15 seconds and diconnects while on the speakerphone try playing music it should work now if not restart the phone i know it sounds funny but it worked for me cheers harpal my email is firstname.lastname@example.org mail me of it works cheers
If you use a plug in set of headphones often, you have probably caused the contacts to spread apart inside permanently. The only solution (if that is the case) is to replace the headphone jack, or to (for the brave) attempt to insert a pin inside the jack and open the contacts so they are not pressed against the outside of the jack assembly.
Sounds like a mechanical issue that hp should fix under warranty. It would be annoying to have to perform surgery every time you want to remove the headphones.
Also, if my inderstanding of how these jacks work is correct, it's possible that rapidly plugging and unplugging the headphones could get the audio to go back to the internal speaker.
I would suggest getting hp to permanently fix it.
