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 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!

My Ipod Nano only has sound in one ear. when you turn the headphone jack in the socket it picks up the other sounds ear for a second then disappears. I've tried different using headphones and the samething...


Within the jack, there is a very delicate balance. The same thing happened to the auxiliary jack in my car. Since it is broken, you'll need to either see if you're eligible for an Apple warranty replacement or repair, see if a local electronics place can fix it at a decent price, or spring for a replacement.

Sound only in right ear


Its either the jack or the connector in the device is the problem. You can try connecting other headphone, if this works, then the problem lies on the jack of the old headphone.

My ipod


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

Only the left ear bud has sound


Hey NoRightSound,

If your earbud headphones function normally with other devices, there are a number of reasons why this problem may be occurring, including faulty connections within the iPod itself or a potentially defective headphone jack. While both of these issues can typically be resolved fairly easily, I would first suggest contacting your local Apple-authorized service center for a complete diagnostic to pinpoint the exact cause of the problem.

Remember that if your iPod is still under the original manufacturer's warranty, you can always call Apple directly for technical support over the phone in addition to working with a technician in your area.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Headphones not playing in iPod


This is either cause by a damaged headphone socket in the iPod or a loose connection. The only way to solve it will involve opening the iPod case and inspecting the daughter board that the headphone socket is on.

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??
