Hey guys...

I just got a steal of a deal for a 1st gen ipod touch 32gb. The only problem is that the headphone jack only plays out of the left side. I realize that the headphone jack needs replaced. I have a replacement jack, but I'm not sure I need it. I'm trying to avoid soldering them stinkin little contacts as much as possible.

I would like, if it can be done, to fix the contacts inside before i go desoldering and resoldering. Possible? Anyone ever done this? I've googled and youtube and it seems no one has covered replacing the headphone jack itself.

Thanks guys!

Meh.... Nevermind.

I took it all apart, soldered it and it works great.

Mods can delete this if necessary. :D
