Hey markallen407,

If you've tried several different pairs of headphones and have encountered the same problem with every pair, you could possibly be looking at a defective headphone jack. In some cases when headphones are unable to make a secure connection within the jack, they may only receive an audio signal through one of the two speakers.

Unfortunately, this means that you may want to seek repairs on your iPod at this time. If you are still covered under the manufacturer's warranty, I would strongly suggest contacting Apple first for more information or further assistance. Many manufacturers may be able to provide faster solutions than third-party service facilities for problems with their products, but remember that it may be necessary to ship your iPod out for repairs.

Additionally, please keep in mind that you may always bring your iPod to your local Best Buy™ store for service. Geek Squad® agents are able to provide support for most products we sell, and can even honor existing factory warranties for products that were purchased through other retailers.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Jvc gumy ear bud headphones purple


When you pull the wire up does it increase the right ear bud volume/ sound? If it does, then it means the right side ear bud has a short within the head phones circuit which is aka the wire that leads to the musical device in which the ear buds branch off from.

If the right side ear bud does not produce an increased volume for sound by picking the wire up or pulling it in towards you or to the left side of your body or musical device then it means that the right speaker is blown.

I know that all head phones come spiced together aka they are stuck together and have to be pulled apart in order to get both head phones seperated from each other so that they can be worn in the ears. If you pulled the wire apart to much or too quickly then that is what ruined the right head phone.


I suggest that regardless if the ear phones begin to work by pulling the wire up,side ways, or into towards your body that you return them back to the store since after awhile the problem will eventually continue to happen causing the right ear bud to completely blow. Once you return the ear phones be cautious with the new set when you seperate the ear buds from each other since they are very touchy and have to be handled with delicateness when seperation is taking place.

Please let me know how it works out for you. I have had many ear buds and I tell ya something; they are very easy to blow one side when seperating. I had to learn after a few pairs that I was ruining the speakers by the way I was seperating my wires. I kept thinking for the first 3 pairs that the store was selling blown ear buds until I began having same problems with another few stores so I said to myself "well the solution is to figure out what I am doing wrong in order to blow one side of my ear buds every time". After few seconds it was not that obvious that all I had to do for assembly was to pull the wires apart in order to get both ear buds to go into my ears.

Left earbud has no sound


I had this problem with 2 of my HBS 700s. The speaker in the earbud goes bad and needs to be replaced. If it is still under waranty you can send it in to be replaced (trying a home repair will probably void your waranty so try this at your own risk). If it is out of waranty and you have experience with a soldering iron, the earbuds can be replaced with a plain set that look similar to the originals from your local store (Wallgreens has a good selection for like $10). I am a novice at these things but the solution was pretty easy and has worked for both of my earbuds. I actually improved the quality of sound by installing better earbuds.

3d9a9467-2679-44c4-ba93-679ba93f6b9d.jpgYou will need:
- 1 small soldering iron
- one set of new wired earbuds (no volume control or mic... just plain earbuds)
- jewlers phillips head screwdriver
- one small flat screwdriver or thin flat edge to pry the cover off.
- one needle or thumbtack
Directions are the same for both sides. I suggest doing one side at a time and repeating the steps for the other side.
Directions:
- TURN OFF HBS 700
- locate the rubber plug on the bottom of the case (one on each side above the L and R symbols) and remove the plug with a needle.
- remove the screw located under the plug
d49d0cf9-a723-46a8-9565-47c904450fdf.jpg
- use a jewelers flathead screwdriver or thin flat edge to pry the case appart. The best method is to gently pry the bottom of the case outward then push in and up on the top part of the case starting at the back of the plastic case (where the earbud wire comes out) and working your way forward.
5ebd207b-e704-43ba-b2c1-4c0bb3656563.jpg
- remove the earbud cup and set aside. (if working on left side, also remove the charger door.)
- the circut board is held in place by plastic arms on the sides. Gently pry the circut board away from the case and lift up where the arms are holding it in place.
4865fbac-05ba-4dcd-bd70-b4bb366d79c7.jpg
- once case is removed from circut board, you will see where the earbud soldered to the board.

NOW FOR THE FUN STUFF...
-cut your replacement earbuds to length and expose about 1/4" of the two wires inside (usually one gold and one colored or one solid color and one multi colored).
-The two wires are coated to prevent them from shorting out while touching. Add solder to your soldering iron so there is a good drop hanging from the tip. Insert one wire at a time into the drop of solder (about 1/32" will do) and hold it there for a few seconds. This will melt the coating and allow the solder to stick to the wire.
BE CAREFUL NOT TO SOLDER TOO MUCH OF THE WIRE OR IT WILL TOUCH THE OTHER AND SHORT OUT! ONLY A LITTLE ON THE TIP OF THE WIRE WILL DO.
-carefully use the soldering iron to remove the old earbuds from the circut board. A small soldering iron with a sharp tip works much better than the standard size at this. The soldering points for +/- are VERY close together so becareful not to melt them together.
-solder the new earbuds in place of the old ones. + to + and - to -.
-tie a knot in the earbud wire close to the circut board so it does not pull free from the case when closed.

-at this point in my repair, I turned the HBS 700 on to listen for the startup tone to make sure the earbud was connected properly. I DO NOT RECOMMEND TURNING IT ON OR TOUCHING COMPONENTS WHILE IT IS ON. IF YOU WISH TO CHECK IT AT THIS POINT LIKE I DID, DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK. ALSO, MAKE SURE NOT TO HOLD THE CIRCUT BOARD OR TOUCH IT WHILE IT IS ON AND TURN IT OFF BEFORE CONTINUING.

NOW IT'S TIME TO PUT IT ALL BACK TOGETHER.
-reinsert the circut board to the top cover in reverse of how you took it out. Do not force it and make sure all the plastic arms clip over the circut board securely. Make sure to press the buttons to see if the are seated right.
-replace the earbud cup, battery door and power switch if it fell off.
-attach the bottom cover making sure to leave the knot on the inside of the cover. The cover should snap on easily.
-Re-insert the screw and plug.
DONE!

If you wish your new earbuds to attach magnettically to the cup, you will need to break open the old earbuds and remove the magnets from inside. Then glue them to the outside of the new earbuds or drill a hole for them to sit in and glue them in. Be careful tho because drilling holes too deep in the new earbuds could damage the wires inside (I found that out the hard way)

Headphones


Firstly, it looks like the plug showing in your video has 3 black bands on it. Is that correct? If so, that usually indicates that it would be a headset that also includes a microphone like the kind of device to use on a cell phone that has that kind of female plug on it. I would try to determine where the problem originates, the computer or the earbuds. You could do this by plugging in a pair of known working headphones in to the computer and see if they work ok. I took a pair of earbuds of my own that have the 3 black lines on the plug (and they do in fact have a microphone too) and plugged it in to my laptop and they work fine. The fact of the 3 black lines does not seem to have any effect on whether or not sound comes out of both buds. so, I would take the "broken" earbuds and try them on an mp3 player, someone else's computer or anything else like that that plays stereo music. If you only get sound from one speaker while they're plugged in to a different device then you can safely assume that the earbuds are broken. Most likely a bad wire in my opinion. It's probably time to head to the store at that point and pick up a new pair of earbuds. Thankfully, they're not very expensive these days. I hope that helps. any more questions? you can email me: davidsfreud@gmail.com

Only one side sends out sounds


Usually the wires are so small that they are hard to repair even if you can open the units to re-attach. I think they make these things to break.

The wires break at the flex points.

Left earbud problems


Well, I had the same problem with the right earbud. Luckily I was under warranty with Target, so they told me to contact Bose. I did and they had me send in the headphones (to make sure I waas telling the truth) and about 2 weeks later I got my earbuds back. Their customer service is excellent, so that's what I would reccomend

Head phone jack


Flip the Sansa face down with the headphone jack to the left. Take the cover off the battery then remove the 2 screws by the sync port. This frees up the plastic that covers the last screw. But before you can remove this piece you need to lift the 2 black tabs in the middle and slide your nail between the seam between the black and silver areas near the hold button. The rest comes apart easy or the couple I have fixed the headphone jack have.

My left earbuds on my JVC gummy earphones went out.


I have this problem all the time with my JVC earbuds. This may sound a little gross but it will work. I put the ear phone in my mouth and **** on the end of it pretty hard. What I have found is that sweat or even wax will plug the little hole and prevent the sound from coming out.
