    Default Headphone jack broken :/

    When I listen to music, the sounds get distorted unless I fiddle with the headphone jack. Any slight movement will cause it to mess up again. I've tried multiple headphones so I'm pretty sure it's the Ipaqs that's broken.

    My question is, what are my options on fixing this and the costs? I'm pretty sure my warranty ran out last month. Thanks for your time.

    Same here with my h1910. The problem is not that sereve at the moment.

    I think that the solution is to get the jack replaced.

    I have no idea on the cost through sorry

    Hmm interesting. I bet I'll make it worse but it's worth checking out.

    I had the same problem before. Turns out there's two very small metal parts on the ear phone socket assambly that came into contact with the inner side of the back cover. HP put a section of black tape on the cover to prevent this from happening and it wears out from all the vibration. all you have to do is open up the ipaq, apply a thin tape over the old one and that's it. 10 min job max.

    to see if you have the excate same problem as I did. hold the ipaq front facing up, press down on the face plate around those two power/bt indicators, see if you hear those noise form ear phone(music on please ) while pressing down.

    for some reason the face plate casing is conductive, hence the static sound when the metal parts came into contact with it. open the ipaq up and slap on a tape about 1cmx1cm over the old one. won't hurt to try. Just be jentle on those tab that holds the front and back casing togeter.
