I have the exact same thing and i have to get a whole new player. if you keep your headphones cord in the mp3 jack it makes the headphone jack get bigger so it wiggles and you can only hear from one bud. you may not want to mess with it too much because otherwise you could ruin your mp3. ask a person at a electronic store and see if there is a way to make it last a little longer. its connected to the hard drive thats why you cant fix it completly
It could just be the earphones. Happened to mine last week, tried it with a different pair and it worked just fine.
Same thing has happened before with CD players and such, and replacing the earphones works every time.
What a coincidence. had the exact same problem today. ur connection on the inside of the player between the circuit board and the headphone jack is probably broken. I had to re-sauter mine. just open it up and take a look

When you pull the wire up does it increase the right ear bud volume/ sound? If it does, then it means the right side ear bud has a short within the head phones circuit which is aka the wire that leads to the musical device in which the ear buds branch off from.
If the right side ear bud does not produce an increased volume for sound by picking the wire up or pulling it in towards you or to the left side of your body or musical device then it means that the right speaker is blown.
I know that all head phones come spiced together aka they are stuck together and have to be pulled apart in order to get both head phones seperated from each other so that they can be worn in the ears. If you pulled the wire apart to much or too quickly then that is what ruined the right head phone.
I suggest that regardless if the ear phones begin to work by pulling the wire up,side ways, or into towards your body that you return them back to the store since after awhile the problem will eventually continue to happen causing the right ear bud to completely blow. Once you return the ear phones be cautious with the new set when you seperate the ear buds from each other since they are very touchy and have to be handled with delicateness when seperation is taking place.
Please let me know how it works out for you. I have had many ear buds and I tell ya something; they are very easy to blow one side when seperating. I had to learn after a few pairs that I was ruining the speakers by the way I was seperating my wires. I kept thinking for the first 3 pairs that the store was selling blown ear buds until I began having same problems with another few stores so I said to myself "well the solution is to figure out what I am doing wrong in order to blow one side of my ear buds every time". After few seconds it was not that obvious that all I had to do for assembly was to pull the wires apart in order to get both ear buds to go into my ears.
I have the GC-1020 Element mp3 player..i have had it for 2 months.All of a sudden i can only hear the music out of one ear of my ear buds,i have tried my earbuds on something else and they work fine..why won't sound come through both ears anymore?
I don't know if you used new earphones but if you did I would try to clean the inside of the mp3 player then reconnect youre earphone. If you still have the problem return to the store, then the hardware in the mp3 itself is wrong.
Aparently your mp3 player does work but it sounds like your having trouble with the head-set. I recomend purchasing a new set of ear-phones as the small wires that connect to your ear-buds are FAMOUS for breaking!
