Hi guys

For some reason recently when I plug in my headphones I only get sound from one side.

Can anyone guide me on this? Most likely a hardware problem I know.

Does anyone know if I have to get a new jack port, where I could get one from?

Actually, this has happened to me quite a few times. I found it to be a problem with the headphones/earbuds instead of faulty hardware. First, my left audio would disappear, and about a month later, the right audio would follow suit. I believe it's just a problem with cheap earbuds, or at least was in my case.

Hmm I dont think its the ear buds as they work fine in every other thing. I've also tried different ones in the n7

Have you tried shining a light down the 3.5 jack hole (haha, i said jack hole!) to make sure both the small contacts are sticking out far enough to make contact with the earbuds stem?
