Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

The headset plug is either loose or broken. It might need replacement or resoldering. But i have to get into it first. I don't see screws so I can pry it apart but that doesn't seem logical. If this is a paying service, no go.

Hey! Make sure that the problem isnt in the headphones. Try it in an mp3 player or another audio device. If you are sure it is the audio port, than the actual internal connector has a short. I would not recommend going in and soldering things on your motherboard but if you can, go for it. Be careful you do not drop anything.

You could also buy a cheap sound card.

These are usually of good quality but like anything you buy online, check the ratings and reviews. That seems to have good ratings though. Good luck!

Brake light stays on a hd 2003 fxsts Problem

Usually when the brake light stays on it's because the front brake light switch is broken. You can try loosening the front master cylinder clamp and slide it back against the right handlebar switch housing. If that doesn't extinguish the brake light, the switch is probably broken. You'll have to go inside the right handlebar switch housing to replace the switch. Loosen the adjustment on the throttle and idle cables, remove the two screws that holds the switch housing halves together and separate the halves. Take the cables loose from the throttle sleeve, don't lose the ferrules on the ends of the cables. Lower the lower half of the switch housing and you'll see the switch in the front of it. You'll probably have to desolder the wires, replace the switch, the resolder the wires to the new switch. Make sure you get the throttle assembly back together correctly and that it works properly. Don't pinch any wires when putting the switch housing back together

Good Luck

I am trying to use a plantronics headset system and cannot get a dial tone. Is this Norstar phone compatible?

You don't say what headset it is, but I will to help you.

If this is a Plantronics corded "H" series headset you will need to use an A10 adapter cord, which plugs into the headset jack on the phone.

If this is what you are using and you don't hear anything then you need to probably need to switch to an M22 amplifier box, which is then plugged into the jack where the telephone handset was plugged in.

If you are using a wireless headset it plugs into the handset jack where the handset cord was plugged into.

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

I have a pantronics gamecom 1. the wiring has come loose inside the headset, and the left speaker goes on and off as it pleases. the right one is fine, but i would like to know where exactly to find the...

Most headphones hide the access under the part that fits to your ear. The Black rubber pad cushion should remove and you made need to peal away the foam part depending on the type. You might have to glue it back on when done. There should be between 2 and 4-5 screws of the tiny possidrive type. I found soldering the wires back on tricky. They seem to resist the solder, sometimes a bit of spit helps.
The biggest problem however to headphone repair is getting the Black foam pad back on! There's a kind of skirt that has to go around the thing and it never wants to go on!!
PS make certain the cable doesn't have breaks in it especially around the plug!!

The earplug/headset input on my Garmin Nuvi 660 is broken.

Interesting problem but I have repaired this problem before. This is not going to be something you can fix yourself.....believe me... I have 30 years of experience in Electronics.

The headphone jack either has to be resoldered or replaced. When its loose, in most cases the pins of the jack are broken and/or the printed circuit board tracks have been torn off the board. The jack is a surface mount part.

A new jack must be installed but there is no way to solder in a new jack because the printed circuit board tracks are gone. The new jack must be installed with epoxy to the board and new wires have to be soldered from the printed circuit board to the jack.

There's around 2 hrs worth of work involved in this repair.

Replacement part for charger plug in on laptop.

The plug for the charger? its soldered into the motherboard. it requires a full disassembly of the laptop.

Just need to find a replacement for it.
you can try contacting with the laptop details for the power connector / plug
you can also look for it on

computer repair shops should be able todo the job, really no need to replace the whole motherboard, just the plug. Also check is the cord of the power adapter broken? I had to take my power adapter, the black box in the middle of the cord from the wall to the laptop, one cable had came loose inside the power adapter, worked perfectly after I resoldered it in place.

Mic stopped working

Could be loose connection where the two wires connect to the circuit board. The mic looks like a small silver canister with two wires leading from it. Resolder if you are handy with electronics. Oherwise replace with a like mic from Radio Shack. Take the old one with you.

How can I fix the loose power jack?

The last 2 screws to separate top from bottom are located ynder the 3/8" wide clip on plastic piece above your function buttons. Center screw and right hand side. Be careful of ribbons, plug-ins and wires that attach to both sides. I strongley suggest not doing this if you are not mechanically inclined. You could very easily cause damage to your laptop.

Loose headset jacks are a very common thing and sometimes easy to fix. First thing make sure you know how to take apart the device as they all dont have screws as some units have snaps and you dont wanna break them. If you do get it apart, see if the solder connections are loose or broken. If you know how to solder then touch the solder iron with a bit of solder and let it flow only on the one tab. Next resolder the other two as there are usually three terminals. If the flex board or printed curcuit board seems to come off with it then your gonna need to run a small(26-28 gauge)wire from the jack connection to another part of the PCB thats along the same line as the terminal. If all this is a little frightning then take the unnit to a pro as this is a minor repair MOST of the time and should'nt cost much. Good Luck
