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.
What i would recommend you to do is to use a different headphone jack....I am a DJ also and certain headset doesnt work properly when you have it all way..try a different one and let me know the outcome..
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.
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!
your headphones probably blew in the one ear. Try another pair of headphones.the same thing happened to me. if that doesnt work the recepters in the ear jack youll have to have a professional to fix it
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.
You are using a not compatible headset. Make sure headset used is compatible with the player.
The headset is not properly inserted. Insert the headset firmly and make sure it sits firmly in.
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
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.
i had the same problem, the headphone jack on the sansa is loose. I opened it all up, and saw that one of the connections on the headphone jack was loose. you can sauter it and it should work clearly again.
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!
