Try another pair of headphones first to determine if the trouble is the phones or in the player. The wires in the headphone cable are very thin, and flexing at the plug often makes them break inside.

If the problem is in the player, it's usually due to solder connections breaking where the jack joins the circuit board. These connections might be repairable. If you can open the player in the first place (the case on many brands is either glued together or the halves are held together with plastic tabs that are nearly impossible to open without breaking the case), and if the jack has a style of solder tab you can reach with a normal iron (many use a type that requires special soldering equipment), you might be able to resolder the connections. These things were never intended to be repaired, even by the manufacturers. Under warranty they just replace the unit at their expense. Out of warranty, you do.

Sound works for radio not for music volume is up music is playing no sound from any headphones


Did you try plugging in a different set of headphones? If other headphones work, maybe you need new headphones.

Try playing music from your Sansa through the computer, while it is tethered. If you can do this, it may mean that the audio amplifier part of the Sansa is broken-- Usually this means, 'get another Sansa.'

Also, try gently wiggling the headphone plug to the left and right, while it is plugged in. If you get music on and off, its possible that the headphone connector on your Sansa has a broken connection. This is a VERY difficult problem to fix (without breaking or melting something else inside the case) and also usually means it is time to get another MP3 player.

My Sansa will only play through the right speaker/headphone unless you jiggle the cord and hold it in the perfect spot, then it will play through both speakers/headphones. Is there a way to fix this...


This is a common problem, it is the lead in the headphones get a new headphone set that will sort you,IF it is the actual jack, soldered onto the motherboard, this then will required to be resoldered. I think, however just replacing them will work fine.

ITouch 2nd g only plays music throuhg left side of all headphones


Try playing with the headphone plug, until you can also hear the right
channel and also try a different set of headphones as it is probably a
matter of an intermittent headphone jack, or plug, owing to sudden
snatching of the headphone plug from same, a very common problem.

Eliminate this cause before submitting your Touch for much more
expensive remedies

Ipod (30 G) earbud jack only plays out of one ear


Does this still happen with a different pair of headphones? If not, get another pair. If the same behaviour with any headphones you will need to contact Apple if still in warranty to get it repaired.

My bet is with the headphones not the IPOD.

Good Luck
