Question about SanDisk SDMX1 MP3 Player
The headphone port on my SDMX1 appears defective. It works intermitently on the left side only when the plug is at a certain angle and tilted that way. It does the same thing with new head phones. It has been suggested on this board that it can be repaired by resoldering. I can do this and other possible repairs to the metal contacts, but I can't figure out how to open the case. The only instructions on this board: "remove the battery, slide the plate down, and pop open the case" aren't good enough. What plate? Where does the case pop open? Please give me very specific instructions. With a $50 replacement cost I have very little to lose trying this repair.
I had the same problem with my SanDisk SDMX1 player. After you remove the battery you can slide down the two plastic endcaps of the MP3 player shell (one end has the headphones and microphone and the other end has the usb input). After you slide both of them off the player can be pulled apart into the two peices of the outer shell and the internal "guts." The spot to resolder was hard to get to with a conventional soldering iron. Since I didn't have one I just heated up a paper clip tip on the stove to red hot and pressed it to the area that needed soldering and rubbed on the solder. My MP3 player now works fine (I was amazed it worked) If you need more detail please ask.
