Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player

1 Answer

My Headphone JAck is messed up

When i plug in any pair of headphones the same thing always happens, the right ear doesn't play. I went to the Apple store and let them look at it. MY warranty is up and they said that i would either have to buy a new ipod or get a radio transmitter that goes in through the charging port. I would just like to know if you know of any other ways to try and fix it

If it is infact the headphone jack, you can definitely buy a new jack and replace it..since your warranty is up, it wont matter if you open the ipod. youtube has several videos on opening the ipod and replacing the headphone jack

Jvc gumy ear bud headphones purple


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.

When I sweat the the earphones start acting up and loose control of the mics functions. What's Apple doing about this problem? This is my third pair and learned to buy the warrenty so I can just take it...


Apple expensively sells cheaply made devices - your problems are something to be expected from them. The only thing Apple is going to do is to sell you another one.
Or you could get a decent pair of aftermarket headphones for a quarter of the price.

My skullcandy earphones are busted


could be caused by the way you wrap them up the cords should never be wound tightly it causes a short and it just so happens that earphones are made of light weight wiring to make them seem to disapear when wearing them so what to do is instead of winding them when your done simply fold them loosely so to speak

Ipod (30 G) earbud jack only plays out of one ear


Does this still happen with a different pair of headphones? If not, get another pair. If the same behaviour with any headphones you will need to contact Apple if still in warranty to get it repaired.

My bet is with the headphones not the IPOD.

Good Luck

I put the ear plugs in and nothing happens.. not


To get the basics out of the way, is the volume turned up and not muted at all... if it's turned up then try another pair of headphones that you know work in something else or test these headphones in something else...( cd player, radio etc.) use a pair that you know work to retest your mp3. plug them in, turn it on and play a song the gently wiggle the end plugged into the player back and forth. If you hear a crackling or snippets of song, then it's probably the jack inside the player....try these things and get back.
PS. post the make and model of your player, it helps with problem identification

My left earbuds on my JVC gummy earphones went out.


I have this problem all the time with my JVC earbuds. This may sound a little gross but it will work. I put the ear phone in my mouth and **** on the end of it pretty hard. What I have found is that sweat or even wax will plug the little hole and prevent the sound from coming out.
