Question about RCA H100 MP3 Player

1 Answer

The phono jack on my son's H100 is loose

The phono jack is somehow loose inside. We only get sound when inserting about 60% of the way and leaning the plug to one side. I want to know how to open the case so I can get inside and fix it.

It only lets me listen to music in one ear


  • If you have a warranty I would definitely send it back to the manufacturer. Most companies will pay for shipping for warranty repairs as well. What sounds like has happened happens a lot. The plug the jack plugs into (inside the Mp3 player) gets a cold soldier joint or the jack on the ear buds gets caught on something one to many times and breaks a soldier joint loose.

  • I usually open the media players and reheat the soldier joints myself. If you have already tried a different pair of ear buds it is almost certainly the jack inside the MP3.

  • Hope this helps.

What kind of input jack for tape and phono?
You could make the right cable from the ipod to the tape input with the right adapters or correct cable. You want to use the tape line level input rather than the phono preamp input. I am assuming you don't need an external preamp for the phono input.
I have seen this unit on EBay with a 1/8 inch plug added as a mod for ipod or other mp3 input. I image they just connect to the tape input leads and drill a hole for the 1/8 input jack. Then you just need a 1/8 inch cable to go from the ipod to the intercom.
There are dealers that can do the upgrade if you don't have the schematics. some of the upgrades are really over the top.
you can get the manual online at PDF heaven.

How to connect peavey mixer to tascam 2488neo


you can get an adapter to go from the earphone jack of your MP3 platers earphone jack to any
equipment with standard line in, check Radioshack. Once you plug it in set the volume low then
adjust it up to a suitable level. Earphone jacks can overload the signal and possibly damage equipment if the volume is too high. I would avoid using phono line in it uses an even lower voltage. You can use the phono line in just be very careful about volume settings and you'll probably get some noise.

Phono jacks are specifically to hook up a turntable to an amplifier (which is what I assume you mean instead by "receiver" ). Most amplifiers have a receiver (radio) section, but they can be separate components. Anyway, try hooking it up to an auxiliary (AUX) input on your amplifier instead. This may be all you need to do. Good luck!

Why do I hear music coming from my MP4 player when I have the earphones plugged in?


There is a switch inside the player headset female jack that is deactivated by headset the male jack when it is plugged in. The switch deactivates the outside speakers. In your case, the switch is not deactivated so you hear sound from both. Three things may cause the problem that you need to check.
  1. You are using a not compatible headset. Make sure headset used is compatible with the player.
  2. The headset is not properly inserted. Insert the headset firmly and make sure it sits firmly in.
  3. The switch inside the unit is defective. It may be stuck or broken. Disassemble the unit to check the switch. Insert the headset and make a visual check if it hits the said switch and deactivates it. You may need the help of a person with know-how in electronics.

Left side quit working, not earbuds, i tried other sets


I had the same problem. the stereo mini jack connection to the circuit board of the mp3 player is broken or loose. I jiggled the jack around and the sound came back into both ears but that only worked for a little while and is annoying. Basically, unless you can re-solder the mini jack to the circuit board, or get someone to do it for you, your player is now just a flash drive.

Ipod head phone jack no good


I agree with Solution 5. The copper pins in the jack that make the connection to your headphone plug are bent in such a way that they are springy and will make a good tight connection to the plug. When those copper connections get worn, they are not so springy and they bend inward causing you to lose audio on one side of your headphones unless you wiggle the plug and find that sweet spot that makes a connection. Then you have to hold the wire to keep pressure on it... it gets annoying.

You can open the case and there are slots in the headphone jack that you can get a hook scribe (like the dentists use) or safety pin to bent those copper connections back out. Don't bend them too far or they will break. You can also pick get a new part for $25 or a used part much cheaper. Once you iPod is open, it's a matter of a couple screws and a ribbon cable to replace the jack. Problem solved!
