Subject: Possible Loose Ear Out connector
From: Nathan Gray (sanguination_at_hotmail.com)
Long time no post,
I own a FMR 20 and yesturday I noticed that slight shifts in the headphone
OR audio cable connected to the ear out hole makes the right channel cut out
for a moment; solution: tap the cable again. I suspect I screwed up the
internal components of the ear out connector somehow. (I.E., the connector
seems a bit loose when something is connected)
So, what're my options here?
Anyone know how, or of a way to get this fixed? I suppose I could live with
this, but ah so annoying to have to keep shifting the headphone cable.
My EE skills are a bit lax so I haven't done any of the mods; probably can't
resolder the device myself if that is the problem. Any freelance hardware
