YES there is a way.

you can head on over to radio shack , and look for an exact matching headphone jack replacement.

or order one.

then solder in the new one.

or if you are in the mood , you can look for a "junked/unwanted device" that has the correct headphone jack you are looking for and strip it out and use it as your new headphone jack.

I love that last option because it will not cost anything :-)

Shalom and may the nforce be with you , always.

How do you fix the headphone jack, and what is the specific replacement jack to be used? My sandisk sansa e200's jack seems to be broken since there's no sound despite having good earphones.

The first thing to try is to see if the volume somehow managed to get set on zero.

Secondly try it another pair of headphones
The jack should be a 3.5mm stereo. When you buy the replacement take your player and see it fits.
You will need a soldering iron to fit the new jack.
Soldering experience is useful here. Mini jacks are fiddly.
Replacing the jack is not a guaranteed fix.
Remember to put the jack cover on the wire before you start soldering.

I wish you success, there is some satisfaction to not having to buy a new set of headphones but it's always a last resort.

Buy a broken one with the headphone jack intact off Ebay and switch the jacks.

Broken Headphone Jack

Replacing it is expensive. However the player is bound to have some sort of usb port on it. You can buy some usb headphones for about £15 and use those.

My mp3 player is dragging when my arm moves. The music gets very slow and you can't here it very well.Model #is S2001

this has happened to me before. this can be caused by one of two things. either:
  • your headphone cord is defective, or, 
  • the ipod's headphone jack is defective
if it's caused by the first, no problem. just buy new headphones. if you do happen to buy new headphones and they still don't work, then this becomes rather difficult. to replace the jack you'd have to open up your ipod and replace it yourself. if it comes to this, i recommend just returning it and getting a new one over tearing up your ipod.
hope this helps ;-)

Head phone jack only plays right side/brad new headphones

Call Philips, get replaced - this is a common problem across all mp3 manufacturers. You can look at the YouTube video on repairing mp3 player headphone jacks, but i doubt it will work without causing more problems with your mp3 player.

Ipod Headphone jack is damaged

Hey mas2514,

If the headphone jack of your iPod is no longer functioning, it can sometimes be repaired or replaced. The cost to repair or replace the headphone jack does vary depending on the iPod model, and if the product is still covered by the manufacturer's warranty or some kind of third-party coverage (such as the Best Buy Performance Service Plan, or PSP).

If you are unsure what kind of coverage your iPod currently has, I would first suggest contacting Apple directly for technical support or speaking with a Geek Squad® agent at your local Best Buy™ store for further assistance. Either of these parties should be able to provide you with a detailed diagnostic, as well as an estimate for repairs if you no longer have any kind of warranty or service plan coverage on the unit.

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

No sound

first off, check the volume...easy enough...

if not, the ipod 5th gen's are notorious for the headphone jack pins getting bent and broken...if this is the case, you need to buy a new headphone jack and replace it (there are many websites that you can buy/offer a replacement service)

I can only hear out of one headphone i ve bought new headphones it just want work

Hate to tell you this, but most likely the headphone jack on your player is broken. It happens alot. If it's under warranty return it to the store. I don't believe the jack is user replaceable on this player. Try inserting the headphone jack only partway and see if you get both sides. Your cheapest solution if it's out of warranty may be to just insert the jack to the point at which you get both sides to work. It's a crappy solution, but it's probably your only hope. It's not a software problem or anything that can be fixed without tearing the player apart. Sorry for the bad news....

IPod- right earphone doesn't work

Yes, the headphone jack will need to be resoldered back in place. You can get it fixed at a computer repair shop or electronics shop. It shouldn't cost that much to get it repaired. Good luck to you:)
