Um.. but sometimes this can just be caused by broken connections between the headphone jack and the circuit board, and can be fixed by a bit of soldering? Right?

That is a common problem with Mp3 players - unfortunately, no one that I know of yet has been successful in repairing this issue, b/c the manufacturers do not sell the component parts. I'm afraid this Mp3 player will have to be replaced, even though only the headphone jack and associated circuit are bad.

Hi i am having trouble with plugging in my ear phones. I have plugged in them, but no voice s coming form them, instead it is coming from my laptop's speakers even if it is plugged in. I have checked


Hello hardly hearing friend,
Firstly ensure your headphones work by using them on another device.
Next make sure they are plugged into the green port not the pink one. (that is for a microphone)
Once they are connected, in the bottom right corner, right click the speaker icon and select playback devices.
You should see the speakers and headphones seperatly.
If they are there right click and enable them.
If not you may have a hardware problem and your laptop will need to be sent back to the manufacturer for repair.

Only 1 side of my dr dre detox is working


THE INTERNAL WIRE CONNECTING BOTH HEADPHONES IS BROKEN. THIS PROBABLY HAPPENED WHEN TWISTING ONE OF THE HEADPHONES TO HEAR ONLY THROUGH ONE OF THEM. TRY FEEDING EEACH HEADPHONE INDEPENDENTLY WITH ITS OWN CABLE USING ONE OF THOSE PLUGS TO SHARE MUSIC FROM SAME SOURCE.

Toshiiba satellite p205 Internal Harmon Kardon Speakers Do Not Work


Most likely its a nardware problem.
If Device manager shows the audio driver is working and enabled and when you plug an headphone into the headphone/audio out and you only get sound from the right headphone then the audio amp chip is faulty.
If the headphone sounds OK then the easiest solution is to connect a set of powered speakers to your laptop.

Turtle Beach X1's(xbox360) Not working as they should be?


Check and see if your TV is on a mono setting. That would cause all sounds to play through the right and left speakers or the headphones.

Only hearing sound out of left side of headphones


i think the problem is in the jack of your sound blaster. since you have already tried different headphones and the problem still persist, and when you use speakers it works fine. i conclude it is the jack of your sound blaster card.

No sound from speakers


Believe it or not, not all speaker plugs, even if they are of the same size are NOT made the same.Some times the "male" PLUG pushes into the "female" socket in such a way that it makes NO connection or does not make the right connection causing the headphones not to work.
TEST: play music that u can hear through the internal laptop speakers, and while the music is playing, plug in the headphones.
The internal speakers SHOULD cut out, and under normal conditions the music should pass through the headphones.
If the speakers cut out and the headphones don't work, your plug is damaged.
If the speakers DON'T cut out after u plug in the headphones, your plug is open.
Depending on the audio circuit, your audio amp. inside the laptop is going to get damaged.
It depends on the WAY the audio circuit was made.

Can't hear sound on one of the headphone's speaker


It's less common for one of the speakers to go bad in a set of headphones. It's possible - but there are more common problems that will cause this. I assume you have tried the headphones on another device to rule our a problem with the device you are currently listening with and using the other device, you still only hear audio from the left speaker.

The wires in the cord that connect the plug to the headphones are very thin and are susceptible to breaking. The most commmon place for these wires to break is at the point where the cord is flexed or stressed the most. Those points are:

1. Right at the plug
2. Where the wire enters into the left and right speaker.

There are occasions where I have seen the wires become unsoldered from the speaker terminals within the headphones themself.

What You Can Do:

1. While listening with the headphones, try flexing the cord back & forth at the plug and where the wire goes into the right speaker. See if the audio will come back and cut out again.

2. What I have done is cut the cord about 3" back from the plug. Go to Radio Shack and purchase a new plug and install a new plug on the cord.

3. You can also take the headphones apart and cut a few inches off the cord where it connects to the right speaker and reconnect the new end of the wire to the right speaker. The goal is to cut away the bad part of the cord and re-attach the good part back.

4. You can try to replace the entire cord but I haven't been able to find replacement (THIN) cords too easily.

Good Luck,

- Jim

No sound from headphones connected to speaker


I may be too simple of an answer but that would happen if the headphones weren't plugged all the way in. If there is a bend in the connector and it's hitting the speaker they may not be plugged in all the way.
