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

SOURCE: Headphones port on my Zen no longer working

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.

Zen Micro will not produce any sound after "play" is clicked

Hi,

Thanks for using Fixya!

try to isolate the problem first by using another headphone. if another headphone doesn't work. try to check if the volume levels from your zen is turned up.

Have a great day.

Creative zen plus player problem?

Bad quality headphones? or possibly the headphone jack port is damaged which can alter the way songs sound. 9 times out of 10 it can be solved by buying new headphones.

Mono Sound Playing through Headphones

Simplest solution, from experience: make sure your headphone jack is pushed all the way into Zen 3.5 output jack. Sometimes it will feel like it's clicked in but you need a little extra push to get it all the way in.
Another thing to look at: I pretty sure the is a preference setting that controls right/left balance (my son has my Zen right now). If you can find  this control, it could be set all the way to one or the other side.
Give it a try, or see if resetting zen helps.
Good Luck.

Headphone port broken?

most of the time you can just solder the headphone jack back on if you have a good soldering iron and skill to do so otherwise you have to send it in
