And had to return it. Like the Clip+ the heaphone does not go in all the way on one side and I was using a right angle piece to keep in there so I didn’t have to take the headphones out but this stragety didn’t work as after about 2 month one side would not work and it was the player and not the headphones in both cases.
Any suggestions so this doesn’t happen again after 2 months. It is annoying to have to return this every two months and buy a $5 replacement plan if it doesn’t last a year.
The headphone jack on these things are extremely tight when new, and usually requires a little extra push and maybe a twist to get it all the way in. Maybe you never fully seated the plug in the jack.
The old e200 series headphone jack was not anchored securely to the circuit board inside the casing and the solder joints were faulty causing a lot of problems but we haven’t heard of any inherent headphone jack failures in either the Zip or its predecessor, the Clip+. And there’s some people here that give them a very good work-out with various headphones.
