    Headphone issue .

    I'd appreciate some opinions .

    Should Headphones be left plugged in for a month or more?

    I've had my HP's plugged in my Teknetics G2 + for a good month or 2 , I unplugged them on Thursday & when I used the machine yesterday I noticed there were a few times that I had a signal but could hear nothing , I made sure the Switch on the Grey Ghost's was turned on ( it was ) ; removed the plug wiped it blew into the Jack hole plugged them back in & they would work for a min, or 2 then mute out , I then noticed that when the plug was not plugged in all the way ( say a Quarter inch was exposed ) the problem got better .

    I wonder if this is a HP issue or a Jack issue ?

    One other thing & a different matter is I can set the Disc at 45 ( note on this machine anything under a VDI of 40 is 'usually ' Iron) now it seems I'm hearing signals in the 10-39 range

    I never noticed this before ' It was giving off some strange Harmonics that I am not used to '

    Anybody with a G2 or F-19 ever notice this ?

    I'd hate to send it in but it's 2 years old & i'm 99% sure I signed up for the warranty.

    Ill do a couple more hunts & see 'what's up ' & also try some different HP's .

    I'm just being a worry wart as usual , so any comfy advice will help .

    A blessed day to all.

    Unplug them when done there's contact springs in the female connector and they might lose tension if leaving them plugged in.
    Sounds like it loose in there, I would give first texas a call and see if you can get it fixed.

    I think mine have been plugged in for around 11 years, though I do alternate between two headsets there is always one or the other plugged into the detector.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Thanks for the reply .
    That's what I was kinda thinking , ie, the Female connector "took a set", for lack of better words.

    Can you clean the male connector with steel wool?
