Question about Garmin nuvi 670 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

The headphone jack has become loose, thus not making easy contact when plugging a 1/8" jack. The contacts seem to have been damaged and now there is no sound coming from the unit. Garmin told me they will not repair it and simply said "you will not have the use of the audio jack anymore." How and where can I get my unit repaired?

    Thanks.

    One question: this unit does not have any screws in the back. Is the case one of those with pressure locking tabs, or similar?

Amm why not repair it your self ???

its simple really,

1.) take the unit out,
2.) unscrew the back of the unit to expose the headphone jack
3.) use a soldering Iron and solder the contacts back in place.. Normally Its just loose solder that causes the problem in the first place..
4.) you can also buy a female connector, Take the old one out and take it with you to get the propper size.. and solder the new one in place.. Its a simple fix and will save you time and money!!

The speakers no long produce sound after using the headphone jack,,disconnected jack , still no sound


When you plug in the headphones, the jack itself routes the signal away from the speakers. When you unplug the headphones, the jack has contacts that close again, routing signal to the speakers. If the jack contacts are dirty, they won't close correctly. I suspect were you to clean the contacts, you'd solve the problem.

Unable to hear system through speakers,but ok through headphones


Make certain the connections to your speakers are good. Test each of your speakers with a 1.5 battery. Put the + and - ends of the battery to the + & - of the speaker (not connected to amp). Just for a short time only - the speaker should "pop".
If they are good you might have damaged the headphone socket on the machine. These disconnect the speakers when the headphone jack is inserted. Sometimes the contacts break or become bent out of place thus not reconnecting the speakers. This can be easily fixed and is not an expensive repair. The only exception would be if there is a switch to switch off the speakers on the unit itself. But if in the past you have put a headphone jack in the unit when the speakers were operating and they cut off then a faulty jack socket is to blame.

There's no sound when I put a cable in input, but when I put headphones too, there is a sound. How to reset ibanez mimx65?


If the sound you when plugging in the headphones is coming from the main speaker, it is just the interupt contacts on the headphones are making or breaking contacts. This can be a good sign if there is volume to it.

Make sure the plugs you are using are the right length for jacks in the Ibanez as there are 5 lengths in use.. If this just developed, the length issue is not a concern. If the jacks are loose, snug them down, it may be a faulty ground relying on the chassis contact with the jack.. It may be a broken wire. It can also be a dirty switch contact or dirty level control, especially the standby switch. make sure they are clean with some contact cleaner. Make sure your level is turned up too,

If you have effects, or a preamp on the guitar, make sure they have fresh batteries or good power connections and are not on mute.

My headphone jack is messing up. whenever i put a pair of headphones in it will not play in both speakers. i just bought new headphones so i know it is not that. How do i fix that?


I have the same problem with my Nextar. If I lift up on the headphone jack, it makes proper contact to play in both ears. So I tightly wrap a rubberband around the jack when it is plugged in and pull up the last loop and sling it over the top of the player. This pull-up makes the contact. Sometimes the rubberband slips off the top so I put a second band 'around' the player to hold the 'sling' in place. Hope this helps!

Head phone socket intermitent and now failed. Any idea what to solder where?


the headphone jack would either be a 3 prong or a 4 prong. meaning it was either had 2 contacts on the headphone barrel or 3 contacts and the last prong being for ground. If you desolder the headphone jack you can easily determine this. Then you can goto a radio shack and pick one up for under 5 dollars. Problems that may come into play are is if they used a low profile jack over a standardized. But even if its 3.5mm or 2.5mm radio shack generally always sells them. You could also purchase them online. Most likely the cause is the contacts inside the headphone jack are no longer making contact with the barrel of the headphone plug. But if its not the headphone jack then it is possible the amp inside the unit has broken. also if you open the unit up determine if the solder on the headphone jack that makes the contact may have become cracked. If that is the case just heat up a soldering iron and make circles around the solder, but be careful not to spread the solder and cross connections.

No sound on the left side


There are two ways that can happen...either the plug part is damaged and cannot connect correctly to the device in the jack and is only able to recieve the right side audio or, the left side speaker is blown...

You may just have to buy new headphones.

Headphone jack seemingly screwed up


What generally happens to connectors, especially exposed to air is they oxydize.

Buy a can of "Contact Cleaner" from a local Radio Shack and spray it (through the thin tube usually provided) into the jack. One quick push, dont flood it. Take the earphone jack and insert and remove it several times, wiping off excess, which sould clear contacts and it should work normally again. If not it would have to be replaced which is no easy matter requiring an experienced Technician or Factory. Sometimes it cannot be replaced without damaging the Mother Board. This however sounds like a common problem the Contact Cleaner will fox

Cheers,

Good Luck :)

Audio only plays from left headphone


The contacts inside the headphone jack are made of a springy metal there is one for the left and one for the right speakers. This happened to my Blackberry and I took it apart and got inside the jack block and re-sprung the contacts. It worked for me... I used a dental pick.

Headphone jack on archos gmini 220


I find the ground contact, the first one from the outside, tends to bend. Just bend it back a bit with a small screwdriver (eg. for eyeglasses) or manicure scissors.
