Left ear bud won't work


ensure the headphone jack is plugged into the media player completely and that there isn't anything in the jack keeping it from plugging in all the way or getting a good connection. try another set of headphones and see if it is the headphones or the media player device. if it is the headphones mostly they are not serviceable and have to be replaced with a new set. if you just bought them u might be able to take them to where u bought them and exchange for a new set. or contact the manufacturer (altec) to see if they will warranty them out for a new set.

I have bought several pairs of headphones for my gogear but they all sound like there is a problem with the connection only getting sound through one ear sometimes


The headphone socket in the GoGear is faulty. If you can hear sounds from both ear pieces when you wriggle the headphone plug in the GoGear, then the headphone socket in the GoGear is faulty. This fault can be easily fixed by removing the circuit board in the GoGear and resoldering the headphone socket to the circuit. You need a very fine tipped temperature soldering iron to do this job.

I purchased this mp3 on 11th devmber. the music is not getting through to the headphones - can you help? is it powered by a battery & is one included as standard?


Hi mharrington9,

You may want to post the make and model of your mp3 player. Someone may have solved the same problem with the same player, and would then be able to give you a more specific answer than this one;

I assume you have replaced or re-charged the battery first, and that full power to your player did not help. If so, it is likely to be a problem with the headphones, the headphone receptacle, or the amplifier inside the mp3 player;

1) Headphone problem?
Get a different set of ear-bud headphones, and try them out. If the alternative set works but your headphones do not work, it's the headphones.

1a) Large headphones, small player?
If your headphones are large, but the power of your MP3 player is small, the player may not have enough power to drive the headphone speakers. If you run your MP3 player through an additional amplifier, you may then have enough power to get sound out of your headphones.

1b) Broken wire in ear bud jack?
Most of my broken ear-bud sets have failed because one or more of the wires has broken, usually at the plug-end. There are 3 thin wires; If you break the left-channel or right-channel wire, only one earbud goes out. If you break the ground wire, both earbuds stop working, or you may hear a very faint sound at full volume. If you like to solder things, it is possible to get a new plug, cut off the old one, and solder in a new one. But it may be easier to get a new set of earbuds.

2) Broken Receptacle?

Plug your ear-buds into a different, working MP3 player. If the ear-buds work, then
Plug your MP3 into a computer through the data cable, and try to play something through the computer.
If the MP3 works through the data cable, something is wrong with the receptacle for your ear-bud plug.
You may be able to get your MP3 player replaced under warranty, since the purchase was recent. Or, if no warranty and you feel adventurous, take the back off and try to re-solder or replace the receptacle-- Though this usually ends in irreparable damage to the MP3 player :-\

3) Broken MP3 player?
If you can't get any music to play through the data cable or the computer, something is seriously wrong with the guts of the MP3 player. Try for a warranty replacement if you can.

Best of luck, mharrington9

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!

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

Mp3


Your MP3 file might not have any content on the right channel. Try another Mp3 file. If the problem occurs on another file check the hardware:
Unplug the headphones from the mp3 player. Try another set of headphones. If the problem occurs with another set of headphones, it is a broken player. If using another set of headphones cures the problem, try your original headphones again. Plug your original headphones back in. If the problem comes back, buy a new set of headphones.

Hello rd34227,

If the headphones are defective, you should be able to purchase replacement headphones at the store where you bought the iPod.

Depending on when you bought the item the unit may still be under manufacturer's warranty. If that is the case you should give Apple a call at 1-800-275-2273 and they can advise you whether the headphones would be covered and how to get a replacement.

Best Regards,
Ken

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.
