Question about Sylvania SMP2012SL 2GB MP3 Player
This device has fragile connectors in the headphone jack. Most of my headphones don't cause any trouble, but one of them always bends the contacts back so other headphones don't work properly.
Symptoms of this problem are: the sound becomes quiet; some frequencies are muffled or inaudible (especially vocals and mid-range); no stereo effect. To be certain that this problem is with the device and not the headphones, try it with a different set of headphones. If the problem remains, the device is damaged.
Unfortunately, the only solution is to open it up and bend the contacts back into the headphone jack so they can connect to the plug properly. This is an advanced maneuver, and you are very likely to break the device permanently if you attempt it. I've been doing this kind of thing for years, and this device was one of the most difficult to work with. Fixing it will be fun for bonafide hardware hackers, but everyone else will be better off just getting a new one. Give the old device to a kid who likes messing with electronics... they can probably re-purpose the battery and the case. :)
