Title: Jukebox restarts when the headphone jack is moved
Post by: nixon on November 05, 2004, 01:34:14 AM
Sorry if this is a FAQ - but my Jukebox restarts whenever the headphone jack is twisted a bit.  It's worked fine for several years.

Anyone have a similar problem?

Thanks!

Not really. I think it is a grounding problem, that the ground gets disconnected when you wiggle the headphone jack. Open it up and resolder any suspicious solder joints.

Thanks Linus; if it gets much worse I'll give this a try and let  you know how it goes!

I usually break a bunch of other things whenever I try to do something like this!
