What you describe means that there is a connection problem at the jack end. e don't if it's at the male jack (the one at the cable) or at the female one (the jack on the device). Check your headphones at another device to clarify this. If the problem is active on the other device too, you have to fix the male jack. In order to do this, you can easily change this end with another jack (complete jack and part of the cable from another headphones) by connecting the cables. The best solution is to change the jack with another one and solder the cables but since these cables are very thin, it isn't so easy.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

Simple test : plug the headphones in another device. If they work there without a problem then the defect is in the socket of the device you are now using. You will have to dismantle the device and replace the headphones socket.

My ipod classic is only playing out of 1 headphone, it is the same with all headphones


Step 1:
Your trusty iPod has been a close and reliable friend for a long time but one morning only the sound of air comes through the headphones. The likely culprit is a loose or broken headphone jack that is in need of repair. Rather than spend an exorbitant amount of money to have someone fix it you can easily make the repair on your own and have your iPod friend back. Read on to learn how to fix a broken headphone jack for a fifth generation 30GB or 60GB iPod video.

Open the iPod case with a small flathead screwdriver by slipping it under the centerline of the case. You will find a series of clips you have to release in order for the case to open up about an inch. Locate the headphone jack connection and verify that there are no broken wires. Fix broken wires quickly by twisting the wires back together and wrapping with electrical tape. Test the iPod for sound by connecting your headphones to the jack. Replace the wires completely if you find static coming from the iPod jack. Fold a business card twice so that it wants to unfold and slip it into the case over the blue sponge. This creates the pressure needed to hold the jack in place and allow a solid connection. Push the case together without engaging the clips on the side and test to make sure the jack is now working. Try a thicker business card or fold the first one again to get enough pressure onto the jack connection if the first card didn't fix the problem. Press the case fully together until the clips click into place. Use extra care when inserting your headset to ensure the jack remains in place.

Headpone one side dead


Hello there,

Most cases of broken headphones I've seen fail because the cable breaks at the point right by the jack due to bending and stress. Wiggle the cable by the jack and see if it comes on/off. If it's intermittent, then you can buy a new jack from a components supplier (eg Maplins). Remember to solder the correct wires - jack tip is left, ring is right, sleeve is ground. You might want to use a multiplier on the cut off jack to find out the color of each (working) wire and to which part of the jack it is connected.

There's a video here about this procedure:

Right side of bose headphone is not working


I have fixed over 500 headphones. Its the plug that connects to audio devices.
Take a look at it http://images.appleinsider.com/ipodiphoneav-review-5.jpg
http://sound.westhost.com/p70-f2.gif
Look at the Standard stereo headphone. When you plug it and unplug it from your audio/music device,
the little 3 or 4 wires disconnect. The smaller the headphone, the more chance this will happen.
To revive your headphone, you have to cut it and re solder the wires to the plug.
follow this step because I don't know how to explain it to you and make you understand it.

Speakers are ok but headphone is not working


OK. Speaker works/headphones don't! Sultanrajia, what is refering to! Audio Amp, play-back record, computer, radio, TV, all communication equipment. what. It could be broken wire on the headphone jack plug or it could the headphone aren't working. Maybe some bad wire in the headphone cable, faulty plugs.

By the way, do have a Night Visison optic devise that it can take a look into the night. Also, how does the spearkers and headphone work with the Night Vision Optics? stewbison

The right ear phone doesn't work but the other one does


check that the wiring in the plug is not broken. if you pull the plug out a little so that one contact in the jack contacts both sides,you will hear the dead side come on. If it does not,the wire is either broken in the plug ,or where the wire goes into the headphone.

Hi,,in most cases what causes one side of the headphone to work is because, the wire that is connected to speaker inside the headphone might have cut and it's not contacting properly.

What you will need to do is to open up the head phone (left),and check if the wire inside has not cut, If it has removed ,then you will need to put it back with soldering iron and a lead...

But if the wire inside has not removed and they are intact, then you will have to replace the left speaker .

Hope that helps...

Thanks for using fixya...

One side of my headphones dont work


Check that the plug is completely in the jack. If it was part way out it would kill one side.

If plug is normal, likely the crossover wire to the deead side has broken.

These wires are rather fragile and the break could be almost anywhere.

Put sound into the headphones and try pushing wire together along its length to see if you can find a break.

Only one earphone works, weird problem


there is a broken solder joint where it is on the pc board.it is not the earbud itself,because when you pull it out,both sides work.the jack has 3 sections,the tip which is one side,the next piece,which is the other side,and the shank piece which is the ground.the ground connects to the outside ring of the headphone jack.there are 2 contact points inside for the two channels.what happens is the copper foil of the pc board fractures where the pins are soldered.scrape away some of the foil so that copper is exposed for the pins,and resolder it and it will work if you wiggle the jack,you will see the whole piece of circuit board move where it is cracked.after fixing it,put epoxy over the area to make it stronger.

Fixed broken headphones but sound quality has plummeted


 it sounds as if the wires are wired wrong . yes it is best to solder the wires.all jacks are the same,yours will be stereo i believe. is the braid attached to the earth point, the two other wires attach to the centre of the plug and the other terminal point. these are right and left.
