Question about Creative Labs Zen Micro MP3 Player
Um ok well my zens headphone port is broken and it wont let my headphones have sound....no its not the headphones i have tried many but its the same still dosnt work.....it only lets sound come out of them if there in a certain spot...and i just want to kno how i can fix it so i can get my zen to work again
It is a dry/broken solder joint on the headphone port. If its under warranty yet, have Creative fix it. If not, they want something like $80. If you know someone who has a soldering iron then its a fairly easy fix. It just requires removing the battery, sliding down the plate, popping off the plastic surrounding, removing two screws that hold it together at the top, and reheating the pad.

My suggestion is that there is a loose connection in the headphones and that is why it will only work when it's in a certain direction. That would be the soloution if it was just that one pair of headphones. If lots of pairs of headphones don't work. then it might be that one of the metal plates in the headphone port is broken or damaged. If this is so it might be worth taking it to your local electrician.

sounds like the ground or common has broken or cracked on the headphone jack. It shouldnt be a big deal unless its a broken Printed curcuit board or flex cable. Contact http://us.creative.com/support/custsup/a... for a sevicer near you. Good Luck

You may have a detatched connector on your circuit board. My main solution is: Solder the wire to the connector and presto. You may have to read instructions as to how to take it apart. Good Luck.
