Try another headset to be sure its a problem of the player and not broken headphones. if its the player i hope its still under warranty, else you need to open it whats wrong. hot air soldering machine is an advantage..

    there can be 3 things wrong with the connector inside the mp3 player.

    1. the conector itself is broken
    2. the conectors contact to the main board is loose but the small metalic contact on mainboard itself is still intact.
    3. the connectors contact to the conectors contact to the main board is loose because the small metalic contact was ripped out of the main board (worst case)

    solution:
    1. replace the conector with a hot air soldering machine. using a classic soldering machine could damage the mainboard.

    2. just resolder the contact

    3. i did not find a posibility to fix the 0,5mm contact square on mainboard, but it was possible to me to find a workaround, by connecting a cable to the loose connector foot to an other working contact on the mainboard. during this i did start the open player and listened to music while pressing the other and of the cable to random contacts on the board.

    the said news is, once 1 of the 3 connectors contacts are loose its more likely that the same will happen to them.

    bonus solution for all 3 problems: take some rubber or matches piece place it above the connector and close the whole thing so that it pushes on the connector :)

Earphone jack on my compaq presario c700 stopped working. How do I fix it?


You will need professional help on this, the laptop must be dismantled down to the motherboard level to access the problem. The earphone jack may have to be replaced and requires a high degree of solder skills to remedy the situation.

My mp3 worked fine, but all of a sudden my sound is not as it should be. I can hear the music quite fine, but the voices aren't hearable. Sometimes you can hear a voice clearly on some songs, but mostly it...


The earphone jack inside the player has broken the 'Ground' pin off the circuitboard. The jack needs to be resoldered. This does take an experienced technician with watchmaking skills.

Low and bad quality sound by headphone port


sounds like an internal problem
like a bad connection
if you have the skill, you could pull it apart and resolder the parts around the earphone output jack
hope this helps!

My Samsung Instinct is stuck in headset mode


DONT DO THE RESTART/ERASE CODE!!!!!!!!!!! its a hardware problem, not software or virus. your phone is probabluy stuck in headset mode, where you can hear the ringtone for incoming calls and alarms but not calls (without headphones). you three real options are to (1) stick a boby pin or stylus into the jack until it leaves headset mode (2) more invasively, find a really small screw driver and open the phone(screws are under the battery cover, in the corners) and poke in the earphone jack or (3) get a new phone. thats all i can tell you.

Ear jack in Iriver h10 doesn't work correctly


I bought a used unit from ebay with the same problem (discovered later) and had to buy another as-is player, open it up, and replace the defective headphone jack module on the first player.
see this forum for directions to open player: forum

plan b - sell the unit as-is on ebay and put your profits toward a 20gb refurb for $30-60 (from sellers like metromania)

Not a good sound


could simply just be the earphones... sometimes it just means ur heaphones are stuffed.
if its not the headphones either the player is stuffed or the audio format is something the X20 can't read
if its the player i'll be frank, you have no hope, there are no specialised stores that can fix it besides iriver international (they'll only take it if its still in warranty). you cant fix it yourself unless you have thorough knowledge of the circuit.
If its the sound format try changing it to mp3 or wma...
hope this helps!

Help with sansa e250


Call Sandisk and tell them about your problem. I had the same exact problem. The headphone jack inside is loose. Talk to Sandisk and don't worry about the box, the customer is always right. But after they send you a new sansa e250, sell it on ebay and buy a durable mp3 player like the iriver t10 series. My old iriver dropped on the floor plenty of times and it's still working after 3 years.
