Why does the left side of the headphones work inconsistently? ANNOYING
The left side of my Jbl e45 bt do not work most of the time. If i move it around and im lucky it will work but it is inconsistent and annoying. Please help.
you did not tell us where and what you move around. This could be as simple as replacing the connector or resoldering a wire. sometimes things can be repaired and do not always need to be replaced."
In my case, I realised if I twisted my right earcup, the audio on the left will start appearing again. I ended up How do I open it up? and realised that if I pushed the white wire inside the headphones into the headband bit, the left side audio starts to work consistently again. So I super-glued that in place, put it back together and all seemed to work. I suspect the portion of the wire that bends when you fold the headphones had failed, and doing what I did forced the conductive material together and also forced another part of the wire to do the bending instead. Not a great solution, but it seems to do the job.
