No Out-put From Headphones - Repairable?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Got some JVC Xtreme Xplosion HA-S5X (over the ear) head phones from a friend the other day. The problem is that there is no output coming from them. The guy told me that one day he went to use them and they were just dead. No clue why. Anyways, I took them apart and both the wires are connected to each earphone. No noticeable damage anywhere. The cable looks perfectly fine as well.

Can't really figure it out. Is there any other way to test these things or repair them? I have tried many devices and they just wont put any output out at all. One thing that I did notice is that when plugged in to my PC, Windows 7 doesn't even see them. In the volume settings where you can select the default devices, it shows the headphone option but says nothing is connected....

Any thoughts?

Here's the earphones I have: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826262249

The cable could be cut anywhere. I always run over mine with my chair.
An easy test is to find any old crap earphones that work. cut them just keeping the 3.5mm jack and sufficient length wire, burn the ends with a lighter to remove any shielding that still might be there, and connect it directly to the speakers.
