Hi,the problem with my dell inspiron1420 is that suddenly theres no sound..but if pluf in my works...pls do i fix this?thx

The most common issue when this happens, is not easy to fix. There is a pin in the headphone jack that opens a circuit when you plug the headphones in which turns off the internal speakers. Over time the pin gets worn down and stays in the position even if headphones are not plugged in. This prevents the internal speakers from getting the audio signal.
Some people have had success with poking a pin in the hole and gently prying the pin back a little. I don't recommend you do this though as you may make it worse or short something out. By all means if you want to try that, turn off the laptop first and unplug it from the A/C and take out the battery.
Most cases you will need to send the laptop to DELL for servicing. If the laptop is out of warranty, the repair might not be worth the cost.
This happens a lot and I has happened to one of my Asus Laptops. Very annoying! I feel your pain.
Regards, Chris

The headphones have stopped working in the left ear. They are jvc ha-v570 headphones. Is there anything i can do?


This is usually caused by a short in a wire. If you are brave, you can open up the headphones and find the wire that has shorted out and repair it. Usually this happens at the point where the headphones pivot. This may require the use of a soldering gun, or at least some new wire and electrical tape. Nothing you can't find at radioshack. Let me know if you need help opening the casing up to find the bad connection!

We just bought a viore 19" class lcd and can't figure out how to hook up our new sony wireless MDR-RF925RK RF headphones so that one person can hear the tv and no one else can hear the sound.

After doing some searching for the TV you mentioned, it appears it doesn't have any outputs to plug the headphones. Website says it only has inputs. You would need a monitor or a fixed audio out for this to function as you wish. Sorry.

Cannot hear out of both left and right headphones unless I twist the insert plug. Can this be fixed?

Plug another headphone in walkman to check wither headphone jack in walkman is damaged or its headphone plug.
If other headphone gives same problem then open walkman and re-solder headphone jack in circuit.
Hope this will solve your problem.

Opening Case for Repair, Defective Head Phone Port

I had the same problem with my SanDisk SDMX1 player. After you remove the battery you can slide down the two plastic endcaps of the MP3 player shell (one end has the headphones and microphone and the other end has the usb input). After you slide both of them off the player can be pulled apart into the two peices of the outer shell and the internal "guts." The spot to resolder was hard to get to with a conventional soldering iron. Since I didn't have one I just heated up a paper clip tip on the stove to red hot and pressed it to the area that needed soldering and rubbed on the solder. My MP3 player now works fine (I was amazed it worked) If you need more detail please ask.

Audio problem

nope it never hurts to ask as in this case it seams theres a common problem where the headphone jack has a cold solder connection on the pc board or its broken loose from the pc board itself. Now unless you get instuctions on how to open this unit do not attemt to try!! as its all plastic locking tabs and you need to know where to press to realease these tabs .. I would contact or call them and see what they have to say as there is probably a flat rate they charge to fix these units
