If it is not your headphones then try checking the connections. Remove the back and check the connections to the audio socket. They may need re-soldering to the main circuit board.

Hope this helps,

Earphones wont work with hy-2008-det turntable


I'm assuming it does have a headphone socket!
If you plug the headphones in and wiggle the plug around whilst inside it might cause some life to the headphones, even if it is only for a short time. If this is the case the headphone socket (not plug) is faulty. It could still be faulty if there is no connection. The contacts can easily break in the socket leaving no connection to the headphones.
It would be very cheap to replace the headphone socket.

Dear, in your mobile just play an audio without your ear phone, then increase or decrease its volume if it get increased or decrease then their is no problem in your mobile.
then again put your ear phone to your mobile, and trying doing the same thing, if it does not getting increase or decrease then surely their is a problem in your ear phone.
change your ear phone either from nokia care or some local mobile accessories store.

When I plug the earphone jack into my MP4 player, I only get sound from one earpiece. I have tried several earphone sets to determine that it is not a problem with the earphones


Hi, this is a very common problem, after you have pulled the ear phones in and out a few times the solder on the earphone socket becomes brittle and breaks making you lose the connection with the circuit board, now as you have ruled out it being an earphone fault then the only possible problem could be the solder.

now sometimes if you wiggle the earphone at the part that goes into the mp3 you can sometimes get the sound working again, but this dont always work so dont rely on this,

now the problem you have is that the cost of getting this part fixed would cost a lot more than buying a new mp4 player.

the cheapest place to try and get this fixed is a tv repair shop, tell them exactly what the problem is so they dont have to test it and see how much they will charge you to resolder the earphone socket back in place properly.

that would be the cheapest option and could possibly get it working again if they will do the work for you

im sorry their is no easy fix but without getting the earphone socket re-soldered it will just never work

let me know if you need further assistance ok

Earphone socket in mp4 player not working properly


Hi alot of people have had this problem but as you didnt buy it new then you cant send it back to them as they would have repaired this for free if it was you who brought it.
It points to one of two problems as you say some of the keys are not working also then this could be a sign that the mp4 has got damp or wet at some stage causing the terminals to corrode this could be solved by removing the case and cleaning the contacts behind the buttons.
Taking it apart isnt easy and you could easily destroy it completely as for the ear phones not working i know you said it works fine in a different device but it is still worth buying a cheap set of ear phones just to bw 100% sure as they only cost pennys nowadays.
If you still have the problem after trying this then i would say that its either the damp or wet problem again with coroded connections shorting on the ear phone jack or it could be that it needs the two contacts resoldering but this isnt a job for someone who has never done this repair before as you can ruin it all together ok.
Sorry their is no easy fix but hopefully you get the sort of idea what the problem could be anyway let me know if you need further assistance ok
