IPod- right earphone doesn't work

I've tried many earphones and it still doesnt work. Could it be the headphone jack that's broken? if so, where could i get it fixed without paying Apple $130? Thnx, LC.

    headphones only have audio coming through on one side, apply pressure to the wire while its in the jack and it will come through, remove pressure, back to just one side. have had a rubber band around headphone wire and stretched to bottom of ipod to keep pressure, but its only temporary and would like to take it apart as its most likely the headphone jack wiring coming undone

Yes, the headphone jack will need to be resoldered back in place. You can get it fixed at a computer repair shop or electronics shop. It shouldn't cost that much to get it repaired. Good luck to you:)

They iPod Headphone jack can be replaced without any major issues.
The problem you are experiencing is a bad headphone jack. You can find one online or you can have it fixed by a tech.
No Soldering is required.

Can I use headphones on a Kindle?

Some Kindles have an earphone jack and some don't You can use earphones only if your Kindle has the earphone jack. It is the mini-jack like used in iPods and iPhones and many headphones (as opposed to ear buds) use a larger size jack.
Adapters are available. Try Radio Shack for adapters and lead cables. Keep in mind that most earphones require more power to operate than earbuds do and the Kindle may not be able to sufficiently power headphones to get any decent volume.

First, try using another set of earphones, if that doesnt work, I would try to reset your device. If your on an ipod touch, press and hold the lock button and home button until the device turns off and the apple logo appears, let go and see if that works. If youre on a nano, flick the hold button off then on then off again, then press and hold the center button and menu button, if neither one works, your head phone jack in your device might be bad.

I plugged my earphones into my ipod and laptop to play music, and the music comes out of my left earphone, but not the right

This could the way the music is been recorded if it is strero or mono, also do confirm the earphone if one side of the earphone is faulty or not, if bad replace with the exact type and if not the media itself is faulty, you can take it the an electronics repair shop for them to diagonised the appliances... Hope this will help in solving.......

Ipod left earphone

Have you checked the headphones with another player to ensure that it is the headphones and not the iPod's headphone jack? If not I would greatly recommend doing so. If it is headphone jack on the iPod, this can be replaced rather simply. You can go to:

to view the price of the part and decide if it is worth repairing to you.
On the same site you can view a free guide on how to remove the damaged part(s) but also I posted a direct URL below. Simply copy and paste into your web browser's address bar.

The left speaker is not working. only the right speaker is working. can anyone describe how i can open the case and inspect the headphones myself?

If the left earphone is completely deaf, then the problem is the input jack, and the usual solution is just to buy new headphones. I've had this problem with the earphones for my iPod.
