Chord needs changing but screw won't come out

Anybody open their headphones and find the screw stops at a certain point. I'm not sure it's supposed to do this and I should pry it or if the screw is screwed. I've never opned them before (MDR7509) so there's no reason this should have stripped screw. Help pleas.

Well, I got it out but what a pain. I had to take a tiny eyeglass repair screwdrive and dig down next to the screw and leverage past whatever threa of impediment. Then it finally came out. Origially I didn't know if this was manufactured to stay in so some of my earlier "prying" attempsts left some marks. Don't pry the outer cover off if you have this problem--you'll break something. There's an idiosynchracy with the screw which also happened on the other side cup.

I have ecko unltd headphone and when I bent the chord of them the music stopped but when I bend them the other way they work

There is a broken wire in the lead. You can replace the cord or locate the broken wire/s break the lead at this point and rejoin the wires. Make sure the joins do not short against each other. This joint may look a bit untidy.

My headphone cord was cut how do I repair?

Hi, it all depends on where the damage was from, either from the top close to where the ear speaker is,or just from the body of the cord..

From the ear speaker area, you might need to do some soldering...

Get a screw driver,remove the forms from the ear speaker, unscrew the screws off, and open...if there is any cut wires,take the soldering iron and re-solder it... That will do..

If it's from just body of the chord area just get a sharp object, peal off the rubber surface covering the wires inside,and joint all cut wires,with color codes, and after doing this,use a tape to cover it up...And your done..

After all this exercise.still no sound, you will need to test if the ear speakers are working well and also you might need to replace your chord with another one...

Hope that helped.

Sound in one headphone keeps going off and on, moving the wire around can fix it temporarily but is very annoying

You have a break in the cable. You don't say in what area it's in, so I will have to give you 3 ways of clearing the fault.
1: Break in, near or around the plug. The best solution is to cut off the plug making certain the break area goes with it. You can then fit a new 3.5mm plug. If you need advice on how to do this let me know.
2. Break halfway to 2-thirds along the cable. Again cut the cable to a point clear of the break, again fit a new plug. To extend it you can purchase an extension headphone cable from any hi-fi shop.
3. Break to close to headset. In which case you will need to replace the entire lead. To do this you need to open up the headphones. Access is obtained by removing the pad(s) and any foam. You might need to force the foam off. You can glue it back on afterwards. You should then see screws to open it.
Fitting new plugs or attaching the wire inside will require the use of a small soldering iron.

The lower part or the wire of my headphones got cut off, so the headphone jack is detached from the headphones. i tried stripping the chord and twisting the wires 2gether and electrical taping them but it...

Strip back the cable and fit a new 3.5mm plug. You will need to solder the wires on. You will find when you have baired back the cable two coloured wires and two earths. The earths fit together on the metal flange that comes out of the main body of the plug. The coloured wires go on the the two smaller flanges (left and right channels). If you get them wrong way round reverse them you won't do any damage. Make certain the earths don't come into contact with the R & L channels wires or terminals and the left or right don't touch each other. The T shaped end on the large flange is to grip the cable body, bend the tabs to grip the cable.
Once done you can buy an extension headphone cable if you need a to span any great distance.

The left channel has stopped working on my AKG K66 headphones. I have checked the plug, and there doesn't seem to be any damage to the chord. I want to check for an unsoldered wire in the speaker, but I...

Most headphones are opened at the bit that goes to your ear. Remove the pad and foam and you should see screws. You may have to force the foam off, but you can allways glue it back on when done.

Replacement Chord

try radio shack.

you could also take an 1/8 to 1/8 4' cable which will run about 10 dollars or close to it and cut one end off then splice it back in to your headphones.
