I was fixing a problem I had with the head phone jack and when I was finished I relized that my radio wasn't working. Is there any way for me to fix my radio? where is the antenna?


The antenna for the radio is the headphones wire. The twisted copper wire can act not only transporting the sound to the headphones, but receiving the signal for the radio. The two applications work in different frequencies, the radio works on Megahertz and the sound in Kilohertz.
You will have to revise the soldering of the 3.5 mm jack, because it's probably that the contacts are bad. They could work for sending the sound to the headphones, because the power of the signal is very strong. However, the power of the radio signal is very weak, and the contacts must be very good to get a good signal.

Headphone port is not working properly. when using normal headphones the sound cuts out and comes back after manipulation the jack.


Hello,

check the headphone plug likewise the headphone port. Also test the player with another headphone.

Best regards.

The scroll wheel does not respond


Go to ebay and look under Stiletto Wheel. A guy in Maine will fix it for $24.95. I overnighted it to him on Monday and got it back on Friday. It works perfectly, well worth it.

Stiletto2 sometimes has static while playing mp3's from exp. card


I also own a Stiletto 2 and I have noticed this same problem, but only when playing MP3's in my car. What I have found is that if the volume on the Stilletto is too high it creates distortion. The solution is to turn down the volume on the actual Stilletto and just use the volume on the car stereo. Problem solved everytime.

How to open Stiletto 100


Service manuals are not available except from manufacturer - they probably won't give you one, but you can always ask. You can check online sites, but call them in person and make sure they have a SERVICE manual, not a USER'S manual. 1-800-869-5590

Stiletto 100 sound only comes out of 1 channel


The "one earphone only" problem is common to many Mp3 players. It is not fixable, and the entire player must be replaced. Attempting to replace the headphone jack and assicated circuit yourself can cause major damage to your player. I know you don't like this answer, but it is the only honest answer.

Just to let you know, on that model the radio uses your headphone cord as the antennae. If the headphones are unplugged will get no reception. Hope this helps
