Question about SanDisk Sansa m240 MP3 Player

1 Answer

My earphones keep losing and regaining sound!

My right earphone for the sansa m240 works great, but the left one loses sound when you make a sudden movement, when you are running, or when the car hits a bump. You have to twist the plug/jack and adjust and hold your hand there to get decent sound. But then, if you move, it goes away again? What is wrong with it? Can I fix it?

Left earphone has lower volume than right

Maybe you can try adjusting the plug, or the wire within the left earphone is rusted, or change the sound effects on a computer.

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.

Only get sound through one ear

You can see if there is a balance settings in the equaliser..

Highly unlikely its a setting chances are the earphone female connector on the player is eighter damaged or shorting, simply opwn it up and resolder the pins on the connector.

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.

Earphones stop working

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...
