Topic: 3DS XL Audio Jack Help

Posts 1 to 3 of 3


My 3DS XL has been having an audio jack problem. I have had it for less than a year and I never used the audio jack to listen in headphones and such until recently. When I tried to plug in my headphones that work perfectly with all my other devices the sound only came out of the right ear. I tried different earphones and headphones and such and the sound would only come out of the right ear. If I move around the plug anywhere from 1 to 10 minutes I might be able to get it to work for like 30 seconds. I don't know if there is some sort of fix or if I need to send it to Nintendo. If anyone has a solution to this please help.
TL;DR: Sound on 3DS XL only comes out of right ear on headphones and I'm looking for a solution



Have you blown into the port? Some times it can be a bit of dust. Other than that I'd think you'd have to send it to Nintendo since it seems to be that the port isn't functioning properly.

I know this sounds crazy but I was having the same problem. It was simple as making sure I pushed the headphone jack all the way. Use some force to make sure it is secure.
