Question about SanDisk Sansa c140 MP3 Player

What happened to my headphone jack???

I recently started hearing only the "left" tracks or "right" tracks of the music through my player. So I replace the headphones, assuming I had a short. Nope. It just isn't working anymore. I get random bits of "left" and "right" ....and it seems to be that I am moving toward getting no audio at all unless I fidget with the player and keep it held in an impossible and random position. I knew this thing was too good to be true :(

Same problem here. I believe it is a bad jack... which is the same as a ruined mp3 player. the only future solution is to always unplug the headset when not in use to avoid strain at that joint. I have busted two sansa 140's this way but had replacement from radio shack. that's mho.

I can hear only from right headphone of my sony bluetooth


Either the left headphone is shot or the headphone jack is messed up. Try a different set of head phones if its same result see about replacing the jack.

Music only comes from the left headphone


This is a common problem with the headphone jack - if you google "ipod 30Gb headphone jack repair" there are both places that will replace the jack and places that will sell you the new "ribbon" connector and hold switch and jack (it's all one unit). If you're comfortable opening the iPod and have a TINY (#000) jeweler's philips head screwdriver you can replace the unit with no soldering. It helps if you have patience and small fingers and good light; you'll have to fasten the ribbon connector carefully. I paid under $10 for my last part but I've seen the same part for $30+, so caveat emptor. For that price they should put it in for you...

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

Sound on only one side


This is a hardware problem that happens every so often on mp3 players regardless of manufacturer. Unfortunately, the whole player will have to be replaced, b/c there is no repair svc, and no headphone jack components for sale.

Audio only plays from left headphone


The contacts inside the headphone jack are made of a springy metal there is one for the left and one for the right speakers. This happened to my Blackberry and I took it apart and got inside the jack block and re-sprung the contacts. It worked for me... I used a dental pick.

Sound problems on my D-NE720


!st, try a different pair of headphones. If the problem persists, the jack is breaking from the PCB and will need to be resoldered.
