Sansa e250 - the head phone jack is damaged and will not reproduce sound in both stereo channels. Is this reparable or is it a case of throwing it in the bucket? It is out of warranty period...Thanks firstname.lastname@example.org

The first thing to try is to see if the volume somehow managed to get set on zero.
Secondly try it another pair of headphones . The jack should be a 3.5mm stereo. When you buy the replacement take your player and see it fits. You will need a soldering iron to fit the new jack. Soldering experience is useful here. Mini jacks are fiddly. Replacing the jack is not a guaranteed fix. Remember to put the jack cover on the wire before you start soldering.
I wish you success, there is some satisfaction to not having to buy a new set of headphones but it's always a last resort.
have you tried other headphones or earphones some headphones lose connection in the wire and will cause a short where one side works and the other doesnt if this is not the problem may have a lose jack on the inside of the player and will probably have to have it serviced
Plug a 1-to-2 audio jack from the headphone jack of the Sansa to two audio inputs (red and white) of the TV. Change your TV's source channel to the appropriate input (AV1, AV2, Video 1, Video 2, etc). Find the song on your Sansa and press play. you may have to adjust the volume on the Sansa AND on your TV.
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.
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 Rockbox.org 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 Jameco.com etc.)
