Question about Sony Walkman D-FJ61 Personal CD Player

1 Answer

Sound only comes from left earphone (taking the cover off the headphone jack)

I recently was given a Sony D-FJ61 by a friend for free. I got lucky. It worked great, the quality is perfect, no skipping, I expected no less. Meanwhile, after a few days I began to have a problem where the sound only comes through the left earphone. Pushing the headphone jack at a certain angle appeared to fix the problem if I held it in place, so I figured one of the prongs inside the jack must have been bent. So I opened it up, and bent the prong back inward. Meanwhile, it doesn't appear to fix the problem. If I could get the black cover of the headphone jack inside the CD player off, I could better see and adjust the prongs so they touch the jack correctly. Does anyone happen to know how to do this, or know an easier way of fixing the problem?

Hello. The problem could be the jack itself, more exactly it has a bad contact with the main board. If you have a soldering equipment you should try to resolder the jack to the main board. Or you may try to go at a service center, to have the jack replaced just to be shure. It isn't an expensive repair and can be done in half hour at max. I don't recomand you to try to dissasemble the jack because it may get damaged even further. check the connections with the main board, it may even be a broken pin. Good luck, feel free to ask further questions and don't forget to rate any answer received from this site :)

Input jack on my hp541 kicker headphone's sound comes and goes. I have tried multiple cables, If I wiggle the cable around it works in one speaker sometimes both.

Hi hotrodjayrod,

If the symptoms remain the same after trying another headset, this kind of fault is caused by bad solder joints in the earphone jack itself of your unit. This is due to frequent inserting and pulling the headset plug. To resolve the issue, the earphone jack must be re-soldered. You have to open the back cover of your player and using a pointed soldering iron, re-solder the joints.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

Left ear bud lost all sound- no cord damage-only 5 months old...is it worth getting fixed by professional or is there something I can do to fix it ? H

The cords are sealed into the earphone. You can take a multimeter and test the continutity of the either earpieces, once you are convinced that the left side is faulty, first of all use a small thin needle as the probe, use your multimeter in the continuity range, holding one end of the meter probe to the jack , inset the pin like an ijection into the wires to obtain the connection, it there is no connection out of the headphone jack, I think you can replace with a new one to be soldered. If not proceed to the earpiece to confirm, then open the sealed unit and be lucky if the earpiece is not damaged but only the wires. Good Day

No sound coming out the headphones

Try the line out on the back of the unit and see if sound signal comes out there U must plug that into a preamp on your stereo the signal level is to low for the headphones to sound and if there is sound then u have a blown output amp in the headphones circuit!

Headphones and sound.

Hey guys!
Since the internal speakers are working, the sound portion of your pc is set up correctly and working. That is also confirmed by the fact that the sound goes away when you insert the earphone jack.
That means that either your headphone jack is defective (I doubt that, since 2 of you seem to have the same problem, but possible), your earphones (or cables) are defective, or there is a compatibility problem with the earphone jack in the pc and the earphone plug on the earphone cable. Just because the plug fits the jack, doesn't mean that it's making the proper connection. I've been stung with that one myself, a time or two. That's about all there is to that circuit.

The only other thing that I might suggest is that you try to plug the earphones in, hold the Fn key while pressing the F8 key a couple of times. That key combination toggles you speakers on and off. Doubt that will buy you anything, but it's worth a try.

I bought a second hand blackweb home theater system bwa18s8003 that has only the receiver and subwoofer how can I use this without the speakers I bought a second hand blackweb home theater system bwa18s8003. I am not familiar with speakers and these home theater systems. I thought a subwoofer was a speaker but after getting this home and doing research I see now that there should have been five little speakers making this like a surround sound I suppose. My friend thought it was a home stereo and for $10 I thought I found a heck of a deal. After reading I see that it's not recommended to switch up brands with this kind of systems. I hope I still have a deal. I'm wondering what kind of speakers (this is BT) I need and if second hand speakers possibly bought at thrift store, that aren't Bluetooth or blackweb brand may work. If not does anyone know a cheap place to get the right speakers, if they do indeed have to be replacements only to this system. My hopes was I have a little Bluetooth setup to play music off my phone and a stereo. I am asking for options as to what I can do with this system, being just the receiver and subwoofer without having to spend much more if any more money. For example, can I just plug it to my TV, etc. How can I even check to see if the two parts work before I put time and more cash into it since a subwoofer isn't a speaker how do I know if I can't the sound? I just guidance all around, wondering if I got a deal or do I need to kiss that money bye, and recycle or toss it. Thank you in advance for any directions and/or ideas.
