My Playful Mp3 Player

            Play… pause… Play… pause… Play… Ooops! –that’s not how I play my Mp3 player, and that’s not how my MP3 player play my favorite mp3s. it play my favorite mp3s the way it should be, play the song when I press the Play button, pause when I push the pause button and shut off when I turned it off. That’s my Sony Mp3 player.

            It was again just given to me, gift or present in other word. It works just fine, not until I’ve observed that it’s now showing some abnormality, I’ve observed that when playing a music or any audio files like audiobooks and other audios in mp3 format, it’s louder when I’m touching the audio jack—hehe I’m not sure if it’s the right term, I’m referring to the end portion of the headphone, the thing you plug in you mp3 player’s output port. When I’m touching that or perhaps holding while I’m playing music, the volume boosts louder than it used to be, and after a week I suddenly can’t hear any sound from the headphone even if the music was already playing, at first I thought that the problem was on my headphone, so I used and tried other headphone that surely not defective, and the result was still the same. So, it was clear now that the problem was on the mp3 player itself.

            Due to boredom and a little curiosity, I did not wait for second opinion from a known expert, I’ve check out the mp3 player by opening those portion that can be opened by using just my bare hands, and I found out that a screwdriver with a small tip was necessary, fortunately I have something like that somewhere on our cabinet, it took me more that 10minutes and I found it. It’s dissecting time!


            So I drove the screws out or perhaps the bolts? –hehe, and carefully checked out the wirings, the LCD display, the small chips with, the chip with capacitors , insulators, and conductor? –haha I’m not sure if those were those, and if those were present there, it’s just seems to me that it looks like those.

            After a few minutes of careful analysis or perhaps observation of what might be the problem is, I’ve seen that somewhere near the port where earphone is plug, there was a broken solded lead, and my intuition told me that it was the problem, and fortunately I have a soldering iron, I bought it when I was in high school, for what purpose? Uhmm I just want it, it looks cool –hehe. But unluckily I don’t have a soldering lead and honestly I don’t know how to use it –haha. So I just took my mp3 player to cellphone repair shop, I asked the technician if he could fix it, I told him the problem, and he started to open my mp3 player and in not more than 10minutes it was fixed. I only paid 20 pesos for that.
