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.

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.

My ipod classic is only playing out of 1 headphone, it is the same with all headphones


Step 1:
Your trusty iPod has been a close and reliable friend for a long time but one morning only the sound of air comes through the headphones. The likely culprit is a loose or broken headphone jack that is in need of repair. Rather than spend an exorbitant amount of money to have someone fix it you can easily make the repair on your own and have your iPod friend back. Read on to learn how to fix a broken headphone jack for a fifth generation 30GB or 60GB iPod video.

Open the iPod case with a small flathead screwdriver by slipping it under the centerline of the case. You will find a series of clips you have to release in order for the case to open up about an inch. Locate the headphone jack connection and verify that there are no broken wires. Fix broken wires quickly by twisting the wires back together and wrapping with electrical tape. Test the iPod for sound by connecting your headphones to the jack. Replace the wires completely if you find static coming from the iPod jack. Fold a business card twice so that it wants to unfold and slip it into the case over the blue sponge. This creates the pressure needed to hold the jack in place and allow a solid connection. Push the case together without engaging the clips on the side and test to make sure the jack is now working. Try a thicker business card or fold the first one again to get enough pressure onto the jack connection if the first card didn't fix the problem. Press the case fully together until the clips click into place. Use extra care when inserting your headset to ensure the jack remains in place.

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

Headphone jack does not make a good connection


I have a couple of these players and have found that some headphones do this and some do not, maybe try a different pair and see if they fit any better, if the player is new you could think about returning it.

MP3 PLAYERS ARE MADE CHEAPLY!


I have one that had the same problem. I solder the jack back on but noticed that the solder pad came off the circuit board. Look at the circuit board and find the component where the connection from the solder pad leads. Using a piece of wire you should be able make a new connection. even after Soldering the jack back on, check to see if the pads inside the jack are bulging out enough to connect to the headphones. The constant wear and tear from rocking the headphone jack back and forth is what causes it to "brake". Could happen when its on your pocket.

Ipod head phone jack no good


I agree with Solution 5. The copper pins in the jack that make the connection to your headphone plug are bent in such a way that they are springy and will make a good tight connection to the plug. When those copper connections get worn, they are not so springy and they bend inward causing you to lose audio on one side of your headphones unless you wiggle the plug and find that sweet spot that makes a connection. Then you have to hold the wire to keep pressure on it... it gets annoying.

You can open the case and there are slots in the headphone jack that you can get a hook scribe (like the dentists use) or safety pin to bent those copper connections back out. Don't bend them too far or they will break. You can also pick get a new part for $25 or a used part much cheaper. Once you iPod is open, it's a matter of a couple screws and a ribbon cable to replace the jack. Problem solved!

Headphone jack on archos gmini 220


I find the ground contact, the first one from the outside, tends to bend. Just bend it back a bit with a small screwdriver (eg. for eyeglasses) or manicure scissors.

Headphone jack issues


Although headphones jacks are convient. They are very delicate as well. It take very little pressure agaist the jack when plugged in to bend the pins inside the jack that makes the connection. Then they get temermental. Generally the only recourse is to replace the headphonejack in the unit. better left to the techs. replacing can be tricky. But just to make sure you say you have tried other units. Here is something that works once in a great while. Unplug the unit dip the headphone jack {the tip on the headphones} in rubbing alchol insert it in the jack on the unit and spin it repeat several times let alchol evaporate then stick jack back in unit an spin again. Plug unit back in and see if it is better or the same.
