    i restored and restarted the itouch as suggested but the problem still persist. i do think however, that it may the headphone jack because fiddeling with the headphones the sound would come on and off. what do you think?

  • layaway Aug 16, 2008

    the thing is about the headphone jack problem is i never droped my itouch, there simple was no sound coming out of the left headphone with no prior problem before-hand. i tried three different pairs of headphone since with the same result. but when i tried the apple headphone that came with my itouch it worked on both sides, however they too no longer play on both sides.one last thing, on another site in regardes to my problem a blogger posted they put a piece of foil in the jack and it worked. what do you think about this possible solution and do you think i should try it? thanks for all the help.

There is a good chance the headphone jack female socket on itouch is faulty, this happens more often than you think.
Check your guaranty and contact Apple at number printed at the end of user manual to get it repaired.

Dear sir/madam,

There is a good chance that the drop caused some contacts in the headphone jack to move. This wouldn't be a difficult repair except that all of Apple's equipment is impossible to open up without demolishing. I suggest utilizing any warranty you may have. Good luck.

thanks

Sounds like headphone jack is either dirty or loose in the unit or a possible blown fuse.

if still under warrenty I would get it serviced if not then if you feel comfortable opening it up and looking around the inside of the unit around the sounds output jack then you can try that and see if you can find any blown or burnt problems around there loose connections.

Jvc gumy ear bud headphones purple


When you pull the wire up does it increase the right ear bud volume/ sound? If it does, then it means the right side ear bud has a short within the head phones circuit which is aka the wire that leads to the musical device in which the ear buds branch off from.

If the right side ear bud does not produce an increased volume for sound by picking the wire up or pulling it in towards you or to the left side of your body or musical device then it means that the right speaker is blown.

I know that all head phones come spiced together aka they are stuck together and have to be pulled apart in order to get both head phones seperated from each other so that they can be worn in the ears. If you pulled the wire apart to much or too quickly then that is what ruined the right head phone.


I suggest that regardless if the ear phones begin to work by pulling the wire up,side ways, or into towards your body that you return them back to the store since after awhile the problem will eventually continue to happen causing the right ear bud to completely blow. Once you return the ear phones be cautious with the new set when you seperate the ear buds from each other since they are very touchy and have to be handled with delicateness when seperation is taking place.

Please let me know how it works out for you. I have had many ear buds and I tell ya something; they are very easy to blow one side when seperating. I had to learn after a few pairs that I was ruining the speakers by the way I was seperating my wires. I kept thinking for the first 3 pairs that the store was selling blown ear buds until I began having same problems with another few stores so I said to myself "well the solution is to figure out what I am doing wrong in order to blow one side of my ear buds every time". After few seconds it was not that obvious that all I had to do for assembly was to pull the wires apart in order to get both ear buds to go into my ears.

Hi


Try them in another device to eliminate a faulty jack, if they still dont work the head phone may be faulty, return to seller and ask for a refund or replacement.


But also try a different head set in the jack to see if the jacks working properly.


Cheers

Left ear doesnt give out sound


there are two reasons for which your left ear head phone is not working:
1.If the insulation between the wires(copper leads inside the cord) fails....the two leads gets short circuited and it will stop working...OR some times the cord ll be looking good but inside one of the leads got cut then one of the headphones fails...
the solution for the above problem is dont wrap the cord...this ll lead to cut or insulation failure....
2.the speaker in the left head phone got failed...
dont forget to rate me...
good luck...

Only left head phone works on Motoroloa S9 Bluetooth on LG Xenon


It's supposed to be that way. The S9 has been designed to comply with US law that you can only receive telephone calls through one ear while driving - it's a "safety" feature to allow you to hear the road and your surroundings when driving

If your phone supports the A2DP bluetooth protocol, music you play on the phone will be heard in both ears of the S9 headset.

Voice calls are always in one ear only.
