20 Most Recent JVC Gumy Ear Bud Headphone - Peppermint Blue Questions & Answers


I can not hear anything

Hi there thobe47!
Please test the pair with a different audio device and see if the problem goes away first!

Firstly, make sure you are pressing the plug all the way into your audio device jack. Most are designed with two tiers, so only one ear will sound if only one tier of the electrical connection is fully established. Once you've tried that, continue!

Most earbuds are created with very small working parts with equally small electrical connections. If you have lost sound in one side, the most likely cause is a loose connection somewhere.
If it still doesn't work, your options are sort of limited. I would recommend first gently "jimmying" the wire leading to the bad earbud around while it is in your ear and music is playing. If you manage to get the sound to be restored, wrap sticky tape tightly around the wire and the tapered part of the bottom of the earbud in an attempt to maintain the new connection. It is not a permanent fix but might buy you a bit of time with the pair.
If you can't get it to work in that way, your remaining options are pretty much to either open the earbud and attempt to reestablish the connection (difficult, small parts, and could damage the earbuds if you don't know what you are doing), or to buy a new pair. You can get some pretty nice earbuds for under $5 at most megastores, and anybody who could fix them and would charge you will charge you much more.

If you must try to open the earbud (I don't recommend it!), I have a generic set of steps here. I take no responsibility for damage of your earbuds or devices that may follow!
Gently peel back the gelly cover of the earbud, starting under the top seam and pulling it off.
Unscrew or "pop off" the portion of the earbud that has the small grating. There may be an inner retaining system involving more plastic rings. Just keep these safe and remember the order in which you took them apart.
You will now probably be seeing the speaker of the earbud, looking like what you might see on an uncovered subwoofer speaker (just much smaller!)
Being careful to not touch the flat portion of this disk and avoiding anything magnetic (including your laptop / desktop), see if you can pinch it by the sides and gently pull it out of the casing -- probably less than a quarter centimeter. If you can, look for any severed connections between the solder points on the bottom of the speaker and the wires coming from the bottom of the bud. Soldering these would be extremely difficult, but you can attempt to fix them with small pieces of tape.
Nestle the speaker back into the housing, replace any retaining disks in the correct order, screw/pop the outer clip back on, and slide the gelly back into place.

Hope this helps!

My left earbuds on my JVC gummy earphones went out.

I have this problem all the time with my JVC earbuds. This may sound a little gross but it will work. I put the ear phone in my mouth and **** on the end of it pretty hard. What I have found is that sweat or even wax will plug the little hole and prevent the sound from coming out.

Jvc gumy ear bud headphones purple

When you pull the wire up does it increase the right ear bud volume/ sound? If it does, then it means the right side ear bud has a short within the head phones circuit which is aka the wire that leads to the musical device in which the ear buds branch off from. If the right side ear bud does not produce an increased volume for sound by picking the wire up or pulling it in towards you or to the left side of your body or musical device then it means that the right speaker is blown. I know that all head phones come spiced together aka they are stuck together and have to be pulled apart in order to get both head phones seperated from each other so that they can be worn in the ears. If you pulled the wire apart to much or too quickly then that is what ruined the right head phone. I suggest that regardless if the ear phones begin to work by pulling the wire up,side ways, or into towards your body that you return them back to the store since after awhile the problem will eventually continue to happen causing the right ear bud to completely blow. Once you return the ear phones be cautious with the new set when you seperate the ear buds from each other since they are very touchy and have to be handled with delicateness when seperation is taking place. Please let me know how it works out for you. I have had many ear buds and I tell ya something; they are very easy to blow one side when seperating. I had to learn after a few pairs that I was ruining the speakers by the way I was seperating my wires. I kept thinking for the first 3 pairs that the store was selling blown ear buds until I began having same problems with another few stores so I said to myself "well the solution is to figure out what I am doing wrong in order to blow one side of my ear buds every time". After few seconds it was not that obvious that all I had to do for assembly was to pull the wires apart in order to get both ear buds to go into my ears.

This could the way the music is been recorded if it is strero or mono, also do confirm the earphone if one side of the earphone is faulty or not, if bad replace with the exact type and if not the media itself is faulty, you can take it the an electronics repair shop for them to diagonised the appliances... Hope this will help in solving.......

My gumy earphone popped and

Unfortunately due to the size of the drivers it would be unrealistic to repair. You would have get a speaker from another pair of earbuds and re-solder the connection to the wire.

It would be more efficient and cost effective to replace the earbuds.

My left head phone isn't playing music anymore,

Usually the problem is a cut at one of the copper cables. Try moving the cables at bothe ends (jack and earphone end) to locate the end that has the problem. In case it's the jack's side, you can easily change this end with another jack (complete jack and part of the cable from another headphones) by connecting the cables. The best solution is to change the jack with another one and solder the cables but since these cables are very thin, it isn't so easy. In case the problem is at the earphone side, you have to open the earphone and reconnect it at the cable again removing the part of the cable that is cut, but since the cables are too thin isn't so easy.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

None of the ear pieces

sounds like the jack is faulty tghe cable has been pulled and the wire probably stripped off connectors. if you can access a electronics or audio shop purchase a new jack these are cheap and you will need to cut the end off the cable there should be three wires an earth and a left and right cable these will need to be resoldered on the new jack plug.. make sure it is a stereo jack...!!.the best way to solder is to gently heat the cable end and dab a bit of solder on each before trying to attach to the jack. then when you come to connect the jack end lightly touch the connector and cable together with solder iron and solder..good luck A

I can only hear in one side of the headphones

Make sure the plug is fully seated in the playback device. Try plugging the headphones in a friend's .mp3 player. If the problem persists, your headphones are probably bad and will need to be replaced.

Does anyone have a JVC RX 817 manual?

I have a JVC RX 817 receiver. I have power, but no sound function. Can someone help me?

Unless you are an electronics engineer, it is unlikely you can fix. Look on the back for a fuse holder. If there is check it with a multimeter. It may be protecting the audio parts. Make sure you don't have a button press for a different audio source than what you think and also check if you have switchable speaker outputs. Finally make sure the speakers are connected and the dog hasn't pulled them out.

After system reset, how do I preset stations on my ux-d327b jvc hi-fi

You can only preset stations one by one. First, you can do a full scan for all stations in range. Press and hold the Stop button on the unit. Press Play/Pause to start the scan. (There are alternate methods using the remote control. See page 17 of the manual.) Press Fast Forward or Fast Reverse on the unit to navigate through the stations that have signal. To set a preset, tune in a station using the Tune+/Tune- buttons on the remote or Fast Forward/Fast Reverse. Then press and hold Prog/Preset on the remote. When you see ##Empty or a preset number, use Tune+/Tune- to select one of the 20 preset storage numbers. Press OK/Play/Pause to save the preset. (If using the buttons on the unit, press Fast Forward/Fast Reverse to select a preset location. Press Play/Pause to save. You will see Stored on the display in either case, if you successfully saved the frequency to the location. ManualsLib has the manual for the JVC UX-S327B here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/1939546/Jvc-Ux-D327b.html#product-UX-D327B . See page 18 for presetting stations. I hope this helps. Cindy Wells

JVC l-A31 turntable volume not very loud, is connected to a amp with phono inputs, wires are connected to the cartridge...

Hello Charles. Maybe you use the wrong pickup system. Normal Phono inputs are just for MM-Systems. MC-System needs other Pre-Amp. Some newer Amps have a switch (mostly near the Phono inp.) to select MM- or MC- system. (MM means Moving Magnet-Sys. and MC is Moving Coil-Sys) Best Regrets Gue.
