headphone socket

Post by THE MOLE » Sun Nov 09, 2014 6:42 pm

when the headphones are plugged in if the lead get a knock or moved it gives a high tone false signal ? have tried a few different headphones and all do the same so must be the jack socket.

any advise please, im out of warranty ;;z

What always springs to mind when it comes to Cscope is just give them a ring first and see what they can do and for how much, many members here are always surprised by their after-sales service, regardless if they have warranty or not you own a Cscope! ::g

Give us a call on 01233 629181 and ask to speak to martin (after 9 as the office doesnt open till then) and you can discuss the options which are available to you. Hve you held the plug in place and just moved the headphone lead?? It sounds like the headphone plug has taken a whack when the headphones were plugged in

Hope this has helped

I think whats happening andy is when the phones are plugged in the slightest movement causes the sound to come throught the speaker rather than the headphones sometimes when you plug the phones in it just bleeps its tits off through the speaker ?

Hi Moley, good to see you're getting out and about again and hope your swinging arm is mended ::g

The headphone jack socket is a swtching type which relies on the headphone's jack plug pushing away a little contact to break the connection of the speaker. There's quite a lot of leverage on the socket and it's very easy for this to take a knock and bend the contact strips slightly making the gap which disconnects the speaker very small so only a little leverage on the jack plug re-connects it. On some jack sockets it's possible to bend the contact strips slightly to correct the problem but on others access is not possible.

Switching jack sockets are used on guitar amps to ground unused input sockets and on some boutique valve amps they're used to switch in a (dummy) load, so preventing an expensive output transformer becoming toast!

cheers stratman, yeh arms better but not right yet can manage a couple of sessions before it starts to hurt again usually the day after ;;z . as for the socket ive realised its not cutting the speaker off when phones are plugged in so get sound from both. dont want to open it as im not 100% sure its out of warranty as i bought it second hand and the guy couldnt find the paperwork. will give cscope the serial im sure they will know ::g

You dont need any paperwork which came with the detector, just have the serial number (located in the battery compartment) ready to give martin and he can tell you if its still in warranty. The unit has the warranty...not the user. I wouldnt recommend opening the detector to try and repair it as more damage can be done.

The best way round damaging the headphone socket if your not using a wireless set up is to get headphones with a right angled plug or get the one on your headphones changed to one.
