Need advice on how to repair my E17 :(

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

I've had my FiiO E17 for a while now and sadly it's been breaking down on me :(

I'll add some pictures to clearify what's going on but basically the headphone jack seems to be to... expanding or something lol?

When I first got it I would just plug in headphones and that was that, but now they can wobble a bit when plugged in which causes the audio to cut off from 1 side.

Which is insanely annoying if that happens when walking around :(

 

Here are some pics.

 

Audio Cut off:

 

 

No problems:

 

 

Anyone here knows how I can fix this? redface.gif

Open it up, take a look. Maybe the jack can be soldered back.

Any reason why you don't want to use the warranty claim?

plz contact local dealer to get warranty service, usually they will send you a new replacement. but if you buy from unknown retailer or buy from other country, you may have to send back to us first. 

 

of course, we can send you a free headphone socket if you can replace it by yourself. but it need some professional skill to do that.

How exactly do we get this replacement head? Also where can we get the how too on separating the circuitry from the body of the unit? I looked inside and the actual board seems to be wedged in there pretty good.

Warranty would be your best bet. Contact the place that you bought it from. Other than that, I don't know what to tell you. Fiio was a pain in the rectum for me to contact. Ask around here on the forums too. Never know, maybe someone knows how to repair it.
