My sandisk when you put in headphones only one

Verify that you've pushed the headphone jack all the way in. Sansas tend to have very tight headphone ports.

If not, try other headphones. If the others do the same thing, it's likely that your Sansa is damaged.

This is a common issue with Mp3 players - the headphone jack is damaged, and must be replaced. Sansa will not sell you just a headphone jack, and there are no repair services, so the entire player must be replaced.

No left ear sound.

That happened to me. It is fixable, but you need to open the caseing of the mp3 player itself. what hapened was that one of the dongles connecting the jack to the main chipset lost connection. you probably bent the headphone thing too much and it released.

to open the sansa, you must take out the battery. then you should find 2 black screws near the edge of the casing. Unscrew them and take off the black plastic cover. You should see the bottom is now totally silver. Near the headphone jack there should be another screw, Unscrew it. These are the only screwes you will need to unscrew from now. Next, Pry off the screen cover to reveal the chipset. Remove the connection from the chipset to the button pad. Take a standard screwdriver and carefully pry out the chipset, revealing the headphone jack. Be sure that the 3 dongles hooking it up to the chipset are in place. Put some tape on however you like, just be sure its tight, and be sure it doesnt interfere with any of the side buttons. Then add some more tape underneith the dongle for more support (do this unless you have a sodder, then sodder the dongles back on. Put the chipset back in the casing and replace the faceplate (dont forget to connect the button pad back to the chipset), and replace the back thing. Put the battery back in and test it. If it doesnt work then add a little tin foil into the back on the dongle. It should work.

Headphone problems

sometimes when overplugging the headphones people tend to loosen what holds it in place i suggest you insert the headphones about halfway and rotate them when and if you hear sound completely insert them but be patient

There is a reason for the headphone jack being loose. You either repeatedly plug and unplug your headphones, or the headphone's wire is to big. Nothing else to say, sorry!
