Question about Apple iPod shuffle MP3 Player
I have had this problem for a while, but only while at work today I was listening to kanye west in mono and i felt like fixing it.
I have a solution to save you from spending $5 on a new 512mb ipod haha.
To fix my ipod, so that both earphones would play, I...
1) slide the panel on the back all the way up to switch ipod off
2) get a fingernail underneath the bottom of the slider, and wench the button off (takes a tiny bit of force and the slider shouldn't snap, although it does bend alot)
3) get a small amount of paper and fold a few times so that it is slightly smaller than the square of visible PCB (printed circuit board) (i used standard lined paper folder 4 times, so it is 16 layers thick!!)
4) place the folded paper on the visible pcb (making sure that the paper is not covering any of the plastic casing )and push to clip the slider back in to the off position with the paper underneath it.
and you done!
Hope i have help some people in the world, and done my part to make the world a better place hahah! tell me whether this worked for you, as it is only a temporary solution. :D

Same thing happened with mine. Looks like one side of the headphone jack has slipped. I have no cash or tools to go and fix this myself, so i put some aluminum foil on the side that the jack had slipped so it makes contact with the slipped side and with the headphones.. and it works perfectly fine now.

I'd say upgrade, but a definite possibility is dirt in the jack. Take a sharp object and attempt to clean it out with a very lightly damp thin cloth. go in a few times, and it it comes out dirty, you have a shot(esp. since this might be garbage anyways) good luck, hope this helps! problem solved!
