Common to all mp3 players - there are a few videos on YouTube purporting to show you how to fix the headphone jacks, but they usually don't work. Replace the mp3 player is the only solution.

I have a 2002 Chrysler Town & country and I can't get the sound to work for the Vcr/player Without headphones. How do I get the sound without the headphones?


I had one of these and it turned out to be the headphone jack, when you put the headphone plug into the jack it disables the speaker and when you unplug the headphones it enables the speaker. There's a contact in the jack and it is probably stuck to headphones. The jack may need to be replaced. Try and wiggle the plug a few times but not hard as it may break from the curcuit board.

Why i have to wiggle the headphone jack to get sound


Two possibilities:
1) either the earbud plug has a loose connection, or
2) a soldier joint in the player itself is cracked.

Have you tried different earbuds? If that fixes the problem, then yea!

If new earbuds don't fix the problem, the it's likely a cracked soldier joint. Cracked joints are easy to repair, IF you have the right soldiering iron and are a careful working who enjoys learning new skills.

Good luck.

Your inner jack could be jacked jack LOL . No really sometimes the inner connection gets loose or the connection to the headphone jack port not making good contact might need replaced if you know that your head phones themself work fine!

My Skullcandy Hesh headphones have messed up sound with my ipod


I would say that if they work fine with other devices then your input jack on your ipod is bad. First I would plug other headphones into your Ipod and see if the problem persists. If not the case then I would plug in your headphones into a known working device and wiggle the wire at the connection point to see if you can duplicate the problem. If this does happen then you need to replace the connector (1/8th inch stereo male plug) on your headphones.

Hi, What test did you preform to know the right phone is OK? Connections can look solid to the naked eye but not be the case. What are you using to test these phones? Make sure the the plug you are plugging your jack into is functioning properly so you know you will get a proper test of the phones themselves. With the phones on your ears and plugged in and music playing can you wiggle any of the wires or connections and hear any crackling? This will give you a good starting point to address. Good luck.

My left earpiece in my sentry headphones have no sound. How do I fix this?


Check the plug - it might have a broken wire, by wiggling it in the jack. It could be the jack as well - try another headphone in the jack.

It sounds like you have what can be a common problem. Sometimes the receptacle (jack) that the plug goes into develops a broken solder joint which is easily repaired if you have a soldering gun or iron , some solder, patience and can get at the solder side of the circuit board. Also check for lifted circuit traces. If they are broken they can be bridged with solder and a small piece of wire if necessary. Make sure you scrape some of the insulating paint off botyh sides of the joint. Also wiggle the receptacle to see if one of the pins is broken if the solder joints look good. Replacement jacks are cheap. Just take the old one to a good electronics supplier to match one up. Hope this helps.

How do I fix a bad connection with the headphone jack on my ipod touch? When plugged in, the music is static-y. It is definitely the headphone jack that is the problem.


Hi, this seems to happen on a lot of mp3 players , usually when you wiggle the headphone in the jack the sound cuts in and out, its the result of the headphone jack bending the metal contact inside the player or can be due to a build up of dirt/ grime in the socket.The problem generally gets worse as time goes on
if you have tried it with different headphones still get the problem and its still under warranty I would get on the apple site or down to you local apple centre and try and get a replacement.
Sometimes a spray of deoxit (plastic conductive lubricant /cleaner)
in the socket does the trick , but I would strongly reccomend trying to get a replacemnt

Dell Inspiron 6000 PC Audio Ports Damaged


You should have sound from the speakers at all times until headphones are plugged into the jack, the jack then overrides the speakers and allows you to listen using the headphones. If the speakers aren't working, it's because they're being overridden by the damaged jack. The only way to correct this is to replace the faulty jacks. You could get a set of external speakers, the con is they're bulky and inconvenient.
