Question about SanDisk Sansa e270 MP3 Player

Earphones stop working

Hi there, I have a Sansa e280 that I am experiencing some problems with. Every now and then one of the earphones (randomly left or right it seems) will just drop out and I can only hear through one speaker. Skipping to the next song fixes it and I can then hear through both again, or sometimes if you leave the song it goes a little scratchy and then comes back. It is not the headphones since I have tried others. I am also running the latest firmware as of the 28/03/2007. I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced a similar problem, or perhaps I have just received a defective unit. Your comments are appreciated. Mat.

    I have 'fixed' this. I was using custom settings for the equaliser. Changing to the predefined 'Rock' setting has eliminated this issue.

    However, I still do not know if it is an issue with just my player or other Sansa's out there....

I had this very problem. The Sansa worked great for over 1 year, but then I started getting some dropping out of sound on the left side. Today I went to an electronic shop and they opened up the unit. There was a small crack in the solder of the earphone jack on one side. So the electrician just used a fine point solder and fixed that, then strengthened the other solder points of the jack to make sure it won't happen again... I hooked in the earphones....and it is PERFECT again!!!! So, don't lose hope...just take it in to a decent electronics shop and they will most likely be able to fix your problem. And he only took around US$10 for the job. Beats buying a new player...

Try the new firmware or check if the earphones plug is not loose

I'm having a similar problem as of today. I was walking on a treadmill and my arm accidentally knocked the cord of the headphones and the player swooped down but was still hanging from my headphones that were connected to my ears. I found out after that I couldn't hear through my left earphone. So, I tried different headphones and all were the same. I have found that plugging them in barely so that the plug is hanging about halfway out proves to work both sides, but that seems kind of useless since they won't be able to stay in. Before this, nothing was wrong with them... which could mean my problem is not related to yours whatsoever, but i was kind of frustrated when the technical support told me it wasn't under "normal usage"...

Only one of my earphones work for my mp3 player


Make sure that you've pushed the earphone plug all the way in. Some Sansa players have very tight earphone jacks. If that doesn't work, it's likely that the player is broken.

Left side of earphones don't work


I have the same problem as well. you just have to take the headphones out, and not put them in all the way. just put them in partway, wait until you can hear out of both.

I can only hear out of one headphone. I replaced the headphones and the problem still exists


Hi
does both of the earphones are new?
make sure you plugged the earphones properly .
If the earphones are new and connected properly then the problem is in the player connector and you probably have to take it to be fixed or even more simple buy new one.

Sansa earphones


first try using different headphones, if the problem isn't with the headphones then it's the mp3 you'll probably have to send it in to get it fixed.

Sound Only Comes Out Of The Right Earphone


If its less than 1 year old, have it replaced. Its a loose connection on the circuit board. SanDisk Technical Support 1-866-726-3475 Best of Luck.
