It's probably a problem with either the headphone jack itself, or the jack's connection to the main board. You cannot fix this without opening the case up. The best thing to do would be to take it to a repair shop where they can either replace or re-solder the connection of the headphone jack. I have a similar problem with my old one, where if you push the headphone end to one side, the sound comes in on both, but if you let go, it only goes to one. On mine, it's because a connection or two are loose between the jack itself and the board.

I over heated,the serpentine belt snapped. Opened the hood to find steam rapidly coming out of both the antifreeze and out of the engine right by the head gasket. It wasn't smoke not blue or black jus

Perform a compression test on your cylinders. One unfortunate result of overheating is the blown head gasket. Without compression your motor will not run. Tester are not super expensive or some stores will lend tools.

In my laptop leftside speaker is not working. i can hear from only right side only. Note: if i insert head phones i can hear both side on head phones. working good on headphones. i need to hear from...

If your headphone confirms the working on both sides then it is confirmed that the amplifier is working and the fault is with the speakers.
You need to open the laptop covers and get access to test the speakers, if there a possible line break or connection fault on the speakers, if not the speaker must be replaced with the same type.
Test using a multimeter, open the board carefully without damaging or get help to check this out.

How do you change a blinker light on a volkswagen jetta? front driver's side.

Hi there. Open the hood and look to the right side of the headlight housing. There is a small box that is seperate from the actual headlight housing that is about 2-3 inches wide and about 4-5 inches long. There is a small tab on the top of it that you must depress to remove it. I took me some time to get this done because it was the first time for me and I wasnt sure this was right or not. I actually depressed the tab and used a screwdriver to pry the box open from the side and it popped off finally. Be careful as the tab can snap because it is made of plastic, but I pressed it pretty hard and it did not. Next reach in with fingers and twist the white colored housing counter-clockwise until it snaps out. Pull out the housing and pinch the sides (I had to use a flat head screw driver to get enough leverage on the bulbs plastic base to pry it out) and pull the bulb out. Takes some pressure because they are snapped into place. Put in the new bulb and make sure it snaps in. Now just reverse the procedure and you are good to go!
Regards, Joe PS: kindly rate my answer. thank you.

The black ink head does not print . I have run a print check as well as cleaned the head and during the test print the black ink prints however when I attempt to print a document it will not print in...

You've contaminated the head by not fitting the cartridge in right. It flooded the head and now will skew any settings that you do.
The following is unorthodox but I do have 3 i850 Canons so I know that it works:
1. Snap all the cartridges out and lay them out on newspapers on their sides
2. Snap the print head out by lifting the lever on the side of the carriage.
3. Place the print head under a faucet directing the water at those areas covered by the cartridges
4. Shake the cartridge periodically as you rinse until the water runs clear out of the print head screen on the bottom.
5. After it seems clean centrifically shake the cartridge in a downward manner until no more water runs out.
6. Snap the print head back in and put all the cartridges back in their proper place; make sure that they snap in completely.
7. Print out some blocks of Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black in an illustrator program untile they seem accurate.

Eats my Cassette Tapes

Ok sound like the play head is out of a-line ment - easy way to fix if it is this - remove from the mains supply and open the cassette deck door - press the play button down and look at the play head there is 2 screws 1 either side 1 is fixed and 1 is sprung - now inset batterys (much safer) - try and fit a cassette in without using the cassette door should just fit in then press play and ajust the Right hand side scree with a small screwdriver (insulated) and ajust slightly to the left or to the right and this should fix the chewing - to get it just right use headphones ajusting left to right will tke the sound + & - to each earphone. Warning dont turn to far to the left as this will undo the screw completely - u have a least 1 whole turn either way is fine

Head phones problem

You have a weak connection somewhere, either a kink in the cable or a bad connection where the cable connects to the right earpiece. It sounds like they need replacing I'm afraid.

Yes they can be fixed. Hopefully the break is inside and not somewhere in the cord. Remove the foam pad being careful not to tear it. Look for small "phillips head" screws which holds the two halves together. Sometimes the halves snap together. Gentally pry apart. Simply resolder the wires, and put halves back together. You may have to "re-strip" the wires. If you do they are very small gauge wires and delicate. Use a small tip soldering iron.
