Music stops as soon as the solder on the 3.5 mm jack dries after application? Answered
well...I have been repairing headphones for about a year now...like switching drivers..changing jacks and so on..so i have fair experience with soldering...well..I have a pair of audio technica -FC700A's which as really great for the small price i paid..and so later, i exchanged the cables(which were thin as string!) with more stronger and better Sony headphone cables(my old pair)..they worked fine for few months..but now i ruined my previous jack..and bought a new gold plated one...i connected the wires correctly..left, right and common..but I have a problem with the left wire(red)..i soldered it on to the point but the sound plays only when the solder is wet(or hot or still gooey)..as sson as the solder dries(cools down) the sound stops...i dont know what im doing wrong..is it dirt in the solder? or some gap? please help..im stuck!! Thanks..
