Question about Insignia Kix MP3 Player

Loss of stereo mode

When I plug in the earbuds half way, both earbuds work. When I push the plug in all the way, I lose one side. Soldering may not be the problem because it works initially......HELP! please and thank you.

First I would try a different set of headphones/earbuds to make sure they're working properly.

If all the headphones you try have the same issue, the headphone jack is damaged. Bring it back to Best Buy. The contacts are too small to fix and are connecting incorrectly.

How can I hook my Sandisk Sansa Clip+ up to my stereo system if the stereo doesn't have a USB port?


Connect a audio from the headphone socket on the player and plug it into the AUX input on the stereo system. Set the stereo to AUX, turn on the player and adjust the volume level on the stereo.

Left side quit working, not earbuds, i tried other sets


I had the same problem. the stereo mini jack connection to the circuit board of the mp3 player is broken or loose. I jiggled the jack around and the sound came back into both ears but that only worked for a little while and is annoying. Basically, unless you can re-solder the mini jack to the circuit board, or get someone to do it for you, your player is now just a flash drive.

I have a problem with earbuds or headphones, when I plug the earbuds in it only plays on my right side of earbuds.


Hey...that's the exaxt same thing that happened to me. On the same side too.

If you've had it for awhile the only thing I can suggest is replace it.

No sound out of one of the earbuds


YOU HAVE A STEREO JACK, LOOKING AT THE EAR JACK THERE ARE 2 COLORED CIRCLES AROUND THE STEEL EAR JACK WHICH DESIGNATE STEREO, ONE COLORED CIRCLE IS MONO-ONE SIDE, IF YOU HAVE TRIED SEVERAL DIFFERENT SETS THEN YOUR EAR JACK IS NOT MAKING A GOOD CONNECTION TO YOUR STEREO EAR JACK AND ONLY GIVING YOU SOUND TO ONE SIDE(MONO), AND MIGHT NEED REPAIRED

Sound on only one side


This is a hardware problem that happens every so often on mp3 players regardless of manufacturer. Unfortunately, the whole player will have to be replaced, b/c there is no repair svc, and no headphone jack components for sale.

More than likely the ear bud or the wiring is damaged. Try set from a friend that you know works for confirmation.
