I think I may ahve made this thread looooooooooooong time ago.

But anyway. I have a Creative Zen Micro (6GB), it's one of the real old ones and it hasn't been used in a while. I found it again when finding a new set of earphones.

Problem with it, the headphone jack seems to be messed up, you have to hold the jack in place (as in push it to the left) to get stereo audio.

If I stop pressing it against the side then it just has either left or right ear (which is annoying).

Anyone know how to fix this?

The only way I can think this would be happening is if one of the contacts has moved inside the jack so that it's not touching the pin when inserted, to fix it you're going to have to open the unit and bend the contact back into a position where it'll actually touch the headphone pin when it's inserted.

Cool sounds like itd work.

And I do have a new mp3 player, I was thinking of selling it and going back to this one though. Never let me down (apart from this obviously).

me and my brothers all had this problem, we had to take it back. Bit late for ur guarantee though!

I have the same MP3 player. The trick is just to keep the headphones plugged in. They're pretty reliable old MP3 players, actually. I've got some dead pixels in mine, but I've had it for yonks.

But yeah, I'd say take it apart. Just be careful what you do (e.g. think carefully before doing anything, and don't touch the screen)

Sometimes it's not as easy as bending the contact back, if you can't get to it. On my sony where the contact met the circuit board was actually broken. I soldered there to connect the two but it only held for a little while.

Long story short, 10 minutes later we were all sat there jerking off. (Our own, not each others)
