Title: FM Recorder Only Plays One Channel
Post by: mrfuser on October 13, 2004, 03:21:44 PM
 ???
Anyone know why my FM Recorder only plays one channel out?  I only get sound out of the left side of my headphones.

Help!

Actually yes, I am slow, but not THAT slow  ::)

It is actually a problem internally , when I push the headphone jack in and hold it firmly I get both channels, something is tweaked within.  (sounds like a lot of people I know!)

I got exactly the same problem with two different headphones.
I dissamble my FM recorder ( http://www.angelfire.com/trek/archos/disassembly.htm ) and I found that a weld was broken.

This is the image of a Multimedia 20 :

On the FM recorder, there is a small PCB in place of the "470" component. This is where the weld was broken.
