WAV Trigger , this is a great product. Thanks

I was able to setup the WAV trigger , and it working quiet well. Still , I have issues with the Stereo Out connector. More than once it stop working. It output noise and stop completely. I notice that if I move the stereo cable I can restored the audio out. I have try more than one cable but the issue continues. I think it is the board stereo jack , which is faulty.

Since I want to have stereo out , can you identify which points I can solder to the stereo jack connections directly. I don't want to de-solder the stereo jack , but to identify where in the board I can make the same stereo connections.

Thanks,
PRPROG

Hello PRPROG, and thanks for posting on the forums.

Have you tried using a pair of headphones or earbuds with the WAV Trigger? Give that a quick try and let us know if you have the same issues.

1/8" or 3.5mm connectors are what are commonly found on headphones and either will work with the socket on the WAV Trigger.

OK.
I try with headphones...same issue. The stereo connector is not working properly. It works for a while, but if I move the WAV trigger board just a little, it make noise (like when you have a bad audio connection). I need to move the connector (put pressure down and/or up) on the connector, then sound is restore. I have try several audio cables and it is the same behavior.

I need to have stereo out. Can you point me to which place on the board I can get the stereo out. I can solder directly to the board and bypass the audio connector all together.

Thanks,
PRPROG

OK, that definitely sounds like a bad jack.

If you purchased the board directly from our website, head on over to our RMA form on the right hand side of this page.

Make sure to fill out your email address, order number and part number in the form and in the "Why do you want an RMA?" box but a brief description of the issue and include this link:
https://forum.sparkfun.com/viewtopic.php?f=112&t=49525

Once we get that, we can get you setup with a replacement.

If you purchased the board from a distributor, just contact them and they will be happy to help with a replacement.
