When I plug in my earphones for my Sansa c250 MP3 player, sound only comes from one earphone. Called Sansa and they said it is problem inside the earphone jack of unit. As it is beyond warranty time, they cannot help me. Can it be fixed or should I buy another MP3 player?

You could try using your earphones with another device to see if they are working properly. For example, I think my earphones have a broken wire in them because when the earphone plug revolves up or down in the jack the sound cuts out. When I turn the plug around a little, the sound comes back. (I am sure you had the volume turned up :)
buy new ones or plug it into something else and see if it is working. you can also wiggle the jack at the end and see if that'll work or go into music settings see if it can play the music or see if music player is turned all the way up.
recharge it by plugging it in to the USB port. your sansa should have come with a USB cable and the ports are pretty easy to find.
almost all types of earbuds or earphones are compatible with the sansa system, so if you just go out and buy some you should be fine.
If you have to adjust your earphone (even if you used other earphones) just to get a normal stereo sound, then the problem is with the player's earphone jacks. If that's the case (and assuming the radio feature of the player also manifests the same problem), then you may need to call the tech support guys at SanDisk for advanced troubleshooting, or possibly replacing that player.
I found their tech support contact number at their website upon consulting prior issues I had with my player.
