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.

My Sansa Clip 1G's screen has completely gone out &

It is not a good mp3 player - you have more than one hardware issue. The replacement headphone jacks are not available, and would require major electrical work to install anyways (bootleg DIY fixes, such as those shown on YouTube, only succeed about half of the time). That issue alone would justify getting an in-warranty exchange.

But, due to your screen problem, the LCD controller circuit is also bad. Mp3 repair for such issues is not cost-effective AT ALL, even in areas where such services are available - you could buy 6 of these for the cost of repair.

That player has a 1-year warranty - go ahead and call Sansa and get it replaced.

i had the same problem, the headphone jack on the sansa is loose. I opened it all up, and saw that one of the connections on the headphone jack was loose. you can sauter it and it should work clearly again.

Hi, my sansa e250 has sound come out of only one head phone no matter how many headphones i try the same happens

The jack in the e250s is not made of adamantium, so it can actually go bad; however, if you try different headphones and thus determine that either:
  - All the headphones simultaneously went bad in one side
  - Your left ear has issues
  - The Sansa is only cranking out one channel; and
     -the jack feels a little off, or
     -perfectly good mp3s are being played off-balance; AND the balance has not been misconfigured in Settings.

...well then, the plot's moving forward and you can get your ear fixed, or stop the cat from killing your headphones, or re-load Sansa or firmware, or fix the Settings, or see to the appropriate repair to the jack (depending on your warrantee status and skill with soldering irons and ordering off etc.)

Hi, I have the same problem but sometime is the left channel & sometime the right channel. I tested multiple headphones and it's alway the same problem. FYI the problem begin after a firmware update. With the original firmware the problem never append. It start with the firmware ver. 01.02.15E. Today I have downloaded the new firmware version (01.02.18E). I hope it fix this annoying bug. Bye

Self Panning Headphones

I recently purchased a Sansa e280 and in three weeks of regular use it developed a similar problem, with music cutting out from playing in stereo to mono, coming out of one headphone speaker. Sandisk tech support told me to reformat the device and install the latest firmware, which I did, but the problem continued and occured more frequently. I have returned the player back to the seller and I shall not be getting another one. A nice Ipod alternative from Sandisk, but from what I have seen written about in forums, the Sansa e200 series appears to be buggey with problems.
