Default How to Repair Sony MDR-NC020 headphones

Hi everybody

I have a Sony Walkman NWZ-S738F (the one with the built in noise cancelling). It is delivered with special headphones(The MDR-NC020) compatible with the noise cancelling function , recently the noise cancelling stopped working and after a short period one of the headphones (the right one ) stopped working too and i think the problem is comming from a bad contact in this zone .





Notice that when i touch the cord on that zone in a particular way the sound comes and goes randomly .

Does anyone knows if it's possible to repair this kind of problem ?


thanks

I've been having this problem with my J2 buds. When I press the part that connects to the port a certain way, both sides work, but otherwise, no sounds come out of the right earbud.

This happened to a pair of headphones I had. Yanked them too hard once, and one of the earbud leads snapped out of the y-connector.

I ended up cutting the cable to try to re-solder it, but it turned out that the l/r/ground wires were like woven yarn instead of a single piece of copper, and impossible to solder. Instead I bought a cheap pair of headphones with a nice cable, cut the earbuds off, and soldered them directly to the drivers of the broken earbuds, which fixed the problem.

Anyway, here are a couple of links that could help.
