My Headphone JAck is messed up

When i plug in any pair of headphones the same thing always happens, the right ear doesn't play. I went to the Apple store and let them look at it. MY warranty is up and they said that i would either have to buy a new ipod or get a radio transmitter that goes in through the charging port. I would just like to know if you know of any other ways to try and fix it

If it is infact the headphone jack, you can definitely buy a new jack and replace it..since your warranty is up, it wont matter if you open the ipod. youtube has several videos on opening the ipod and replacing the headphone jack

My phones' audio jack won't play music from the right ear bud


Have you use another headphones insteading of your Sony headphones to have a try? Make sure it is not the problem of headphone, then you may need a headphone jack replacement to replace the old one.
I've also met this situation with my phone. Finally I found the right

Could be possibly dirt in Ipad headphone jack (common prob) - put a drop of isopropyl alcohol in Ipad jack - just a drop. You might also check headphones in a computer jack to verify if it is possibly the headphones.

My headphone jack is messing up. whenever i put a pair of headphones in it will not play in both speakers. i just bought new headphones so i know it is not that. How do i fix that?


I have the same problem with my Nextar. If I lift up on the headphone jack, it makes proper contact to play in both ears. So I tightly wrap a rubberband around the jack when it is plugged in and pull up the last loop and sling it over the top of the player. This pull-up makes the contact. Sometimes the rubberband slips off the top so I put a second band 'around' the player to hold the 'sling' in place. Hope this helps!

Yes, if you changed headphones and it is still happening, it's almost surely a problem with your iPod's jack. I think the warranty is 1 year only, so you should get it repaired asap.

Ipod (30 G) earbud jack only plays out of one ear


Does this still happen with a different pair of headphones? If not, get another pair. If the same behaviour with any headphones you will need to contact Apple if still in warranty to get it repaired.

My bet is with the headphones not the IPOD.

Good Luck

Fixed broken headphones but sound quality has plummeted


 it sounds as if the wires are wired wrong . yes it is best to solder the wires.all jacks are the same,yours will be stereo i believe. is the braid attached to the earth point, the two other wires attach to the centre of the plug and the other terminal point. these are right and left.

Broken headphone tip in headphone jack


Only thing I can think of is to use a very small drill bit and drill into the broken tip and then pull it out very carefully.Try this at your own risk.

Ipod and headphone problem


The headphone jack on all the apple products have issues (even their laptops). There is no easy fix, other than having the jack replaced, or remounted. A common issue is that it comes loose from the pc board, especially with the movement of the headphone cord. This is a design/functionality flaw.

Hope this helps some.

Problems with Headphone and USB plugs


I share the same problem - I'm worried it's due to routine wear-and-tear on the jacks, so the connections are no longer solid. I hate to think I need to get it serviced for this. Usually buying a new cable has worked, but that gets expensive too... Anyone have a fix??
