Somewhere I saw something about how to make an origami jack in the box and I was wondering if anyone on here knew how to make one that could sort of explain how to make one to me. I looked it up on google but only found a diagram that, for me, was very hard to follow. Can help me with this? Thanks!

Greetings: This is my first contest entry using Instructables. I made the video, followed all of the instructions, received a confirmation email from Instructables...but my video didn't make it to the contest entry. I've received nothing from Jack Daniels. If I did something wrong I would of corrected it. The entry period has closed so I'm out of luck I'm sure. Does anyone have a email address for answers from this contest? Many thanks.

Hi there, I'd like to change jack of some headphones I have. Original jack has 3 pins (left, right, power) and a switch on/off for power, now I want to use a standard 35 mm jack... How? I have 5 cables: blue, red, green, gray, brown... I'm sure blue and red go to same pin but no idea which of others go together... Any suggestion please? Thank you

Actually I'm a complete newbie and I'm afraid that I would ruin my speakers if I do it without instructions. Can somebody please give me step by step instructions on how to replace this jack with the universal 3.5 mm jack. :)

Well, I have obtained a small speaker from a computer that I have scraped. It seems to only have a positive and negative wire, my only problem is, is that I do not know how to attach the jack to it (I'm very new to this). I've obtained some cord from an old pare of headphones witch also has a volume control wheel. The wires inside the cord are Copper, Green, and Red. Would very much appreciate the assistance.

I'm looking for the tiniest power jack socket possible for charging an internal battery. I'm considering micro USB, but it's difficult to solder (and it would be nice if the plug didn't have an up and down direction). Can anybody suggest alternatives? Thanks.

I have a pair of airline headphones that have a standard 3.5mm jack for the audio but require power to an additional 2.5mm jack in order to work. I'm looking to use them with a desktop PC so thought about getting the power supply from the USB but am a little confused about how I can get it there, I've had a look around on ebay to see if there was someone that was selling a 2.5mm female to USB jack but havent managed to find what I need. Do these things even exist? Or would I need to get myself a 2.5mm female connection and wire it up to a USB lead myself?

Hello, I am trying to create a universal remote with my android. I have been trying to light a remote led using my android headphone jack, but I have had no success. I am running ARA Smart Rem on my android to produce the signal. I pressed the button on the remote and I can see the light on my webcam, but I can not see the light when I power it with the headphone jack. I connect a stripped headphone plug with a pair of with alligator clips to the led. The media volume is all the way up. How do I get the light to light up?

Hello, I am trying to connect a 3.5mm jack to a speaker I salvaged from an old radio. The speaker has 2 wires: A + wire (marked yellow) A - wire (marked black) The problem is, the 3.5mm jack has 4 different wires: on one side, there is a copper one and a red one on the other, there is a copper one and a blue one. I got the speaker to work for a few seconds while plugged into my phone, but I cannot remember how it went.

I have seen one before and would like to have my own super strong airbag jack. I do not need airtank or air compressors to be considered. I have air addressed. Just need an easy solution to the problem. Here is one in Australia, I think http://s106.photobucket.com/user/kellypf/media/AirbagJack.jpg.html

This is our front porch decoration for tonight. I wanted something a little more robotic for Halloween this year and this is what we're going to have. We just need to secure the bowl a bit more because it holds our leftovers pretty often. I just finished it up and don't have any lit up shots. I'll try and get some done tonight. Update: OK, got some night shots.

Hi, I am sorry if this question is repetitive, and I figure who ever is approving videos for The Jack Daniels Contest is overloaded today, but I am just worried that my video submission is somehow void for some reason. Matter uploading my submission on Friday, I received the email stating: "If after two business days or so your project has still not been accepted, then it did not meet all of the requirements for participation in the contest. You will then need to make the appropriate changes to your project." So I will not receive an email stating if I have done anything wrong, which I have not, because the email also says: "Requirements: - Video of one minute or less explaining what you would do with $25,000 prize - Date of birth in the text part of the entry - Entrant is 21 years or older at time of entry" And I meet all of the requirements: https://m.instructables.com/id/Independent-film-distribution-model/ Should I be worried? I do to miss out on this opportunity due to a technicality. Thanks!

Hi. I purchased some decent headphones a little while ago and my little brother was playing with the cats with the jack. One of them stuck their claw through it and it needs replacing. They were pretty expensive headphones, so I want to repair these. Will any old solder do? I like my sound quality. I've only got Lead-free crap ATM. Cheers, Josho.

I've looked at a few data sheets for different stereo jack connectors, but none of them appear to identify what these five pins would do in a common application. I'm building an audio amplifier, and this is the connector (de-soldered off another circuit board), and I have no part number. Please see the attached picture. Thanks for any help you can offer.
Question by giantjamsandwich | last reply
I have a stereo bluetooth headset which has a right channel earbud connected to the mic part and a detachable left channel earbud. I opened it up and found a green and copper colored coated wire going to the right earbud then another set of green and coppor coloerd wires going to the plug in for the left earbud. Using a left/right audio testing program on my phone I tried wiring the wires up to a set of headphones to test which wire is which. When I wire up the green right wire to the right channel and the copper colored wire to the ground I get sound through just the right channel as I would expect. When I add the green wire from the left channel to te left connection on the headphones both channels play through both sides of my headphones. When I did those tests I was assuming the copper colored wire was a ground. I then reversed the colors assuming the green wire was the ground and repeated the same test with the same results. No matter what combination I connect the wires in I cannot isolate the left channel to the left side and the right channel to the right side. Anyone have any ideas?

I am, by dint of geography, unable to enter the Jack Daniel's Contest. I do, though, have a rather good idea, which I think would have a decent chance of winning, if presented properly. Here's the deal - you can have the idea, for free. But, if you win the $25,000 grand prize, you must make a serious attempt to get the barrel to me in the UK. If you "only" win first or second, then all I want from you is a polite "thank you". There's a catch, though - I will not give this idea to any one person. I will give it to everybody who asks for it by PM. Nobody will know how many people have been given my idea, and it is down to everybody who asks to present the idea in their own video, in their own style. You can comment if you want, maybe add your own ideas if you are also from an ineligible location, but I will only give the idea by return of PM.

I am trying to attach a apple headphone jack to 2 speakers. Which wires do I have to put where because on the right side there are 3 wires which are the red, copper, and the red and green wire twisted together and on the left side there is the green and the copper and is there anyway that you can control the volume on your ipod from the remote that's on the headphones??

Can I have a silly technical question for which I would have known the answer if I only paid more attention at school? how is possible that stereo headphones, ie 2 speaker circuits use only 3 cables? I understand the "ground" is the one that both speakers,ie left and right have in common but how come it doesnt bother the signals which go to the speakers? doesnt the left signal get mixed up with the right signal? and why is it called "ground" when it's not actually connected to the ground, like for example lightning conductor is? I've read through the wikipedia article about TRS several times but still can't understand it. thanks for answer, I promis I won't forget it this time :)

I'm planning on hooking up a small speaker out of a cheap toy to a 3.5 mm Mono jack that will go into my mp3 player but I don't know if it matters which wires go where. Do speakers have a Positive + and Negative - like LEDs? If they do, how would I find it out? Thanks
Power jack on Dell Inspiron laptop is broken. Rather than fix it, can't I splice something onto my power cord that will plug directly in through the battery panel's access? Sure, you'd have to stay plugged in without battery, but it's a temporary fix that doesn't involve taking the thing apart...
Apologies if this has been asked before, but I've looked around and haven't been able to find anything dealing with the IP rights associated with the JD Independence Project contest winners. Typically Instructables contests don't run into this issue as they are dealing with already-created content and as such the IP is either available already or made available by nature of the public release of information (rendering the content ineligible for patent, at least under US IP law). With this particular contest, however, the prize is meant to preemptively fund a project, business, etc - so there's definitely the possibility of IP creation. How would Instructables/JD deal with this and what assurances do entrants have that IP generated as a result of the contest remains their own?
