Question about SanDisk SDMX1 MP3 Player

Open Question

Individual Parts The 1-year warranty recently expired and one of the buttons is basically broken off inside...convenient. Is there a certain place where we can buy individual parts so I can replace the button assembly? I already sifted through the SanDisk website for help on this subject...but it seems like there's only help for problems with software and files types and the there at least a way I can get it replaced without warranty? Even if I have to pay...

SOURCE: Broken Screen

I just got off the phone with Sandisk and they said that they do not sell parts. If the problem is a manufacturer defect they will replace it if it is under warrenty. They do not refurbish any of their MP3 players. This in essence makes their players throw away items for all but warrenty replacements. Don't buy the extended warrenty it's another waste of your money because of this. .

SOURCE: Dont know what part to weld!!

I hope I can help you since so much time has passed. This is a rather common problem with the SDMX1 and that is because the headphone jack was installed with too little solder. Here is what you do.
1. Dismantle the player by removing 3 screws ( 2 at one end and 1 at the other).
2.Carefully pry the end caps away.they should pop off.
3.lift the upper half of the case from the joystick end gently.
4.lift the entire circuitboard out. watch where the battery terminals are.
5.look at the headphone jack where it is installed on the smaller circuitboard.
6.on both left and right sides of the jack down on the circuitboard you will see 2 solder connections.
7.these are for the left and right channels.
8.if you look carefully (you might need a magnifying glass), you will probably see a very small break in the connection.
9.using a pointed soldering iron (no soldering gun here!), simply resolder BOTH connections using a very small amount to solder. This will most likely solve your problem.
10.put everything back together and it's as good as new. VERY EASY.

SOURCE: sansa e250 cracked screen

it is nearly impossible to remove one from one sansa and be able to use it on another. I agree, the only way would be to get new screen from sansa but they most likely will not sell any. Also, the sync connector, if damaged, might be able to be transferred from one sansa to another but micro soldering would be the technique necessary. I have been soldering for over 30 years, can remove dip components from boards and reuse them else where. the computer stuff is way too fine to do by hand.
just my 2 cents

This model is no longer listed under the LG Electronics Warranty Claims List. That would indicate that the warranty status of this monitor is now expired.
Another verification would be to look at the date on the sticker on the back of the monitor. Monitors will carry warranties varying from 1, 3, and 5 years. I believe LG typically carries a 3 year warranty. If the date on the back of the monitor is older than 3 years then it is certainly out of warranty.

I have a Eee PC 1005 with Windows 7, when i put it on, i can only open the screen up to a certain height before the screen goes white and blank, if i close it slightly then the wriing comes back again. ...

Ann Marie, I'm almost certain your problem is a short in your video connection. This happens in all types of laptops, including the minis, since the tiny cable carrying your video signal from your screen to the board inside your computer actually runs through a plastic / metal channel inside one of the hinges (usually the left). A new cable should cost less than $20 on eBay, so see if your warranty covers this issue--if your warranty provider does not cover 'accidental', as many don't, remember to tell them this is a common issue, as I've said. I've repaired many of these myself--the cable is shielded, but still given to bending and eventual shorting, causing your problem. Mike Denney The PC Doctor hope this helps, glad your warranty is still in place!

On/Off button seems to not turn it on. The on button seems to not work unless you play with it for a while.

The button needs to be replaced, but as doing so costs more than buying another budget model camera you have just two choices:-

1. If still under warranty, return the camera to the manufacturer for replacement (they won't fix it for the reasons I started with). Polaroid will advise you to remove the memory cars, strap and possibly the battery, just follow their instructions.

2. If not under warranty, remove any useful parts, recycle the camera and buy another.

Note that if you live in the UK then you also have rights under the Sale of Goods Act to demand a refund, replacement or repair from the retailer (as opposed to the manufacturer). These rights are additional to any under the manufacturer's warranty and extend up to a maximum of six years (five in Scotland) but depend on what's reasonable. You certainly wouldn't expect a camera like yours which would have sold for under £70 to last six years, but it's arguable that you may expect it to last for up to two years, so don't be fobbed off if the retailer claims that the warranty has expired and there's nothing they can do.

Good luck, I hope you manage to use this information to fix your camera, or at least are able to use the information to help decide whether to buy another camera. Please take a moment to rate the free answer I have provided for you and any testimonial which you might wish to add is always welcome.

Who is the manufacturer for Etec DVD model #2658? I need mine repaired before the warranty expires.

I recently discovered that eTec Electronic products are cheap Chinese imports brought into the US through a company called Schoenfeld International in Bloomington, Minnesota. They contend that there are NO Service manuals or schematics for ANY of their products because their products are so cheap, they're not worth repairing. Basically they're saying, "If it breaks, throw it away and buy another one!"

Exercise your right to "exchange" it, if the 2 years has not yet expired.

Otherwise, it might be cheaper to buy a new printer.

Screen went black on Philips LCD TV

nope..I'd say that you lost your power supply inside..

first you'll need to find a source of supply for the boards,

then, a good tool kit

then, you will see it's not that big of deal

just make certain that when/if you place this on it's face for removing the rear panel, you pad that table or countertop with three layers of soft material.

Fridge noise

Some larger refrigeration units have fans, but typical domestic ones usually do not, only inside the fridge/freezer compartment as such, and is used to force cold air inside the unit to help keep the contents cold.

As for the fire risk, anything electrical usually have a certain amount of risk as far as fire hazards are concerned, but certainly a lot lower then say an electrical heating element or similar device.

The noises you describe usually come from the pump itself, and i can not say if your particular fridge would have any type of fan on it not knowing the model, makes it very difficult to give any sort of prognosis - based on specific models and their typical faults/noises.

Unplugging the fridge simply stops the pump, and the noise usually returns in a minute or two as you have described, simply because the fault/noise is still there.

Pumps and repair work can be expensive, especially if the fridge is an older model and based on the average that most electrical units have a typical lifespan of 1 - 5 years depending on the quality of manufacture.

Look at it this way, a good basic unit costs anywhere from $800 - $1,500 and some of the more expensive models start from around $1,800 + ( Prices are based on Australian models and are quoted in Australian dollars )

Ok so lets break this down a little, i buy a new fridge for $1,000 and it lasts approximately 5 years, this is not expensive if you look at the cost per year which is approximately $200 / year.

Compared to the cost of repairs, typical service has a call out fee, plus parts and labor which can run into literally 100's of dollars. I guess what i am saying here is, they do wear out in time, due to fair wear and tear, and planning to buy a newer one every few years, is not such a bad idea - considering when you weigh up the possibilities of having purchased a device that can keep food cold for up to 5 years ( and in some cases longer ) for around $200 / year, planned replacement models make sense in the long run. A good way to know, is by looking at the warranty and plan to have a newer one to replace it within 12 months of the warranty's expiration, with the added bonus, you can now plan to sell the one you currently have for a few hundred dollars to help with the cost of getting a replacement.

Trust this helps you out a little, and please take the time to rate this answer, thank you.

No, this could mean a loose connection on crt board(red of course) Look also and check to see if lines going to board are connected correctly. If nothing, then there could be something trying to short itself out on crt board. look for burnt resistors and bad capacitors.
