always be careful when opening electronics; you should know or at least have an understanding of basic locations and wiring. i can tell you for sure; solder the cable back to where it was connected and you should recover power. note the cabe may be insulated so just twisting both end together might not work. you need to remove the insulation before you reconnect both ends.
Depending on the MP3 brand, if it is an I Pod, the speaker output should be eigther way the headphone jack or the same electric charge outlet, if it is not working as electric charge shouldnt eighter with sound, try blowing the harder you can against the speaker out, do it couple of times, that may work, otherwise some one tried unpluged the sound by twisting instead of pulling out
Mine did that too. Don't know if it was the problem but I pulled out the headphone jack and it started up, when I plugged the headphones back in, it went off again, but when I pulled it out it started up again. I plugged the headphones back in and it worked this time. Maybe there's a flaw in mine, I was playing with the headphones before it died, not pulling it out or anything but twisting it (yes, I know that could probably tear that up but I only did it once because the jack was slipping out.)
The socket on your player is an audio output. The headphone socket on a Hi-Fi unit is, again, an audio output. If your cable has a 3.5mm audio mini-jack (male) at each end, you can connect the headphone output of your device to an input socket, but these generally only exist in some in-car players, and rarely on home audio products.
If you want to connect to a Hi-Fi system, you are better off connecting to the phono-in sockets that you will find at the back of your unit, notably on dedicated amplifiers. You can then get a simple lead with a 3.5mm audio mini-jack (male) at one end and a pair of phono plugs (left and right) at the other end. This should cost no more than a few pounds and are available from places like Maplin or from specialist sellers on eBay.
to be honest i would see how well its jammed in there. if you cant extract it by hand then use a screw driver and undo it because either way its gonna be damaged.....only problem is you might not be able to put a headphone jack in the hole because the screw may of opened it up too much.
sounds like the headphone socket is faulty. one of the channels could have a stray wire bridging it across to the earth connection. this would also explain the pause, as it would create a short circuit within the electronics.
I actually managed to fix it myself today with just a plain old screw. Find a screw that fits in what is left of the tip and play with it. It took me 2 minutes! Bring a bit force to the screw and twist it and then pull. It popped out like a soar tooth ;-)
