Re: Samsung MP3 512MB
Loose headset jacks are a very common thing and sometimes easy to fix. First thing make sure you know how to take apart the device as they all dont have screws as some units have snaps and you dont wanna break them. If you do get it apart, see if the solder connections are loose or broken. If you know how to solder then touch the solder iron with a bit of solder and let it flow only on the one tab. Next resolder the other two as there are usually three terminals. If the flex board or printed curcuit board seems to come off with it then your gonna need to run a small(26-28 gauge)wire from the jack connection to another part of the PCB thats along the same line as the terminal. If all this is a little frightning then take the unnit to a pro as this is a minor repair MOST of the time and should'nt cost much. Good Luck

It might be the plug on the headphone that's bad - try it on another laptop. If it's the jack that's bad, then it will need to be taken apart and that's not easy to fix - recommend having a repair shop fix it.
sounds from the description that one connection on the jack is either loose or the connection in ear is faulty if the jack can be taken apart you could try and resolder or the earpieace could be done the same.
if there isn't screws to take the MP3 player apart then their are clips on the inside
Unscrew the screws (or if you have clips from the on/off switch use a screw driver to open it. this isn't the most safest way to open it i could break so this is a last opption.) ussing a sodering iron resoder the conection between the loose headphone jack and the curcit board.
(you can pick up a sodering iron at Radio shack for as low as 10$)
