Only one side of my player works. Someone said to take it apart and fix a connection from the circuit board to the headphone jack. Well, I got off all the screws and got the back cover off but that's it! The circuit board is still covered underneath! Does it pop off or slide out??? Help please. Thanks.

If you have several different head pones that completely work on other players but only partially work on that MP3 player then it is pretty clear you have a cold soldier joint where the input jack for the ear buds connects to the circuit board. I see it all the times. The jack plug for the MP3 player gets bumped bumped bumped and pretty soon this happens.
Easy fix though. Just pull the back of the MP3 player off. You will see the jack input. Take a soldier gun and heat it up and just barely melt all soldier points (3 or 4 points is all) where the input connects to the board. This should fix your problem. I've had this happen to every one of my sons MP3 players.
This problem is common with a lot of MP3 players. It is caused by excessive movement of the headphone jack and causes the headphone jack has worked loose from the circuit board. To fix this problem the MP3 player needs dismantling and the headphone jack needs resoldering onto the circuit board to get the headphone working properly.
I had the same problem. the stereo mini jack connection to the circuit board of the mp3 player is broken or loose. I jiggled the jack around and the sound came back into both ears but that only worked for a little while and is annoying. Basically, unless you can re-solder the mini jack to the circuit board, or get someone to do it for you, your player is now just a flash drive.
Kay it might be the head phones buy a new pair and see what happens. If it doesn't work I must advise that you do not open it and tamper with it because then you cannot take it back. I suggest you send it back to woot for another one
That is a common problem with Mp3 players - unfortunately, no one that I know of yet has been successful in repairing this issue, b/c the manufacturers do not sell the component parts. I'm afraid this Mp3 player will have to be replaced, even though only the headphone jack and associated circuit are bad.
Most common cause is that the solder connection that holds the headphone jack to the board is broken. Usually can be fixed by taking the player apart and re-soldering the connection. Takes some effort and a pencil type soldering iron.
The T10 headphone jack is underneath the main board and you have to undo a solder connection in order to remove the board to gain access to the headphone jack. It's a lot of work but it can be done.
I have one that had the same problem. I solder the jack back on but noticed that the solder pad came off the circuit board. Look at the circuit board and find the component where the connection from the solder pad leads. Using a piece of wire you should be able make a new connection. even after Soldering the jack back on, check to see if the pads inside the jack are bulging out enough to connect to the headphones. The constant wear and tear from rocking the headphone jack back and forth is what causes it to "brake". Could happen when its on your pocket.
i have a sugetion , i have the same problem but when u press the headphone jack a little it works right? well it could be that the joint in the headphone jack on the Ipod/ or MP3 is not getting any connection just call the ipod service or get someone professional to tak it apart and fix it.
Theres a good posibility that the solder connections are the only thinbg wrong with the connections BUT theres a possibility that the Printed curcuit board its self is a flex board and that the flex connections are torn. If thats the case you probably wont be able to fix the unit. If you can open the unit then you can look at the connections and see if its just plain old solder connections?? Good Luck
