Hello there! I am a super junior head fi-er. Haha, well I guess to the good gritty stuff.

 

I bought a pari of Vsonic gr06 IEM's about 6 months ago, but within two months of using the right earphone stopped playing music, or so i thought. Recently I picked them back up in hopes that they fixed themselves..............to my amazement, I found that the right earphone was still receiving signal from whatever it was plugged into BUT the music or voices were so quiet I could not hear unless I cupped my hand over my ear. I have no experience in repairing headphones nor do I know what tools I would need. Anybody have any suggestions? I am pretty poor and nobody local (that I know of) repairs headphones. Any help would be appreciated!

I did research but I come up with nothing.

I have recently purchased a Discman D-303 that I think the electrolytic caps need replacing.  Is this unit worth the repair effort?

1. how difficult is this if you know how to solder?

2. what caps should I replace them with?  any recommendations?

3. how many are there?  I've read elsewhere there are 7.

 

Thanks!

Bought a Sony D-321 at a pawn shop about a month ago and created an account at Head-Fi.org because this was the only place online that offered a solution to the problem I was experiencing. After chatting to utahtaper, he suspected a couple SMD capacitors went bad and recommended replacing them.

 

I invested $125 in a hot air blower and soldering iron station and $5 for a few SMD capacitors on eBay. Removed and replaced the capacitors and now the Discman works flawlessly. Many thanks to utahtaper for his help.

Excellent. Always nice to read a success story!

Anyone knows what kind of lubricant is needed for the assembly (the 2 steel rods) that moves the laser back & forth?

I used a tiny bit of white grease. Maybe a light silicon based lube? I have used both with success.
