    Typically the red and white are the right and left, then the shield (the braided wire surrounding the red & white is the ground/common)With a better pic, in focus and closer up we can help you. Concentrate on the solder padsĀ  You will need a soldering iron and rosin core solder.

These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out:
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

Do a soft reset, once or twice, by pressing the power and center buttons at the same time. This should work. It did for me, and I found the answer on the Griffon site. Hope it helps!

from what you have described and what i have read on the rca technical forum. the problem seems to be a flash memory error or the slide lock is activated on the unit. Is the unit locked? if not it means the flash memory is no longer working or is intermittently working. There isnt much you can do on the consumer level. And with the price of the unit its not really worth paying to get repaired. I would suggest replacing the unit. From what i can tell rca charges 55$+ shipping to fix this error. If its under warranty they will fix it free of charge, as long as it has not been tampered with. If its not under warranty its up to you to decide is it worth paying 55$+shipping or buying a new unit. No one likes to hear this, But unfortunately that is the case.
I hope this helps you understand your problem. If you require further explanation or assistance i will be glad to provide it. Thanks and have a great day -Midwest-tek

the easiest solution is to get yourself a cord that switches from headphone plug to RCA and connect it that way. I sure hope that this helps you in hooking your ipad up to the Jamo 200 Sub. Thanks, Cody

Boss oethe left side of my headphone is stop working


The most common cause for this, is a loose wire connection to that speaker (as opposed to the speaker being faulty).

Has anyone pulled the cord too tight or tripped on the cord? If yes, then the internal wire connecting that speaker has an internal break somewhere.

Try the following:

1) Plug headphones into music device and turn on.
2) Gently press the wire 'in' at the left earpiece (or wiggle at the earpiece end). If sound returns intermittently, then you have n internal wire break in that end of the cord.
3) Gently press the wire 'in' at the plug where it connects to your player (or wiggle the cord at the plug end). If sound returns, then there is an internal wire break at this end of the cord.

In the case of broken internal wires, it is possible to repair.

Although very fragile, it is possible to resolder these tiny wires (you'll have to burn off the enamel coating around these wires first) back onto their respective connections, or onto a new plug.

Good luck....

Hi there,

this should be fairly straight forward so here we go.

Firstly, do you have your speakers connected properly? If you get sound from anything else plugged into your amplifier, then all is good here.
If you have not used the amp ever before then I will try to explain all.

You should have at least 2 speakers attached to the amplifier. Each speaker has 2 wires (1 positive, red or + and one negative, black or -) Have a look on the back of the amplifier and you should have e series of connections for the speakers, these are also marked in the same way as the amp. the connections will be marked as;
FR - Front right FL - Front left RR - Rear right RL - Rear left C - Centre
Fairly easy so far. If you are just listening to music then unless you want surround effects then 2 speakers will do.
Now to the record player. Again should be fairly easy, you should have a twin cable with red and white plugs on the end and there may also be a thinner wire maybe with a small metal horseshoe on the end. On the rear of the amplifier, look for sockets marked phono. The right and white twin wire plugs in here. As for the thin wire, there should be a thumbscrew on the back of the amplifier, unscrew this and attach the thin wire here.
Now when it is all switched on and you select phono on the amp you should have sound
hope this helps

Crackling Speakers


That because maybe due to your itunes player which the installation got error..please try another player other than Itune or play it in windows media player or some other player which you think good player.

Or try reinstall your player or update it.

if this not resolve the issue, then verify the connection of your sound card maybe got grounded to other components making the sound crackle..Or you may try attached a grounding wire from your stuff directed to the ground or attached in any metal that is connected to the ground to eliminate noise.

please tell me what ever result for further analysis

Can't hear sound on one of the headphone's speaker

It's less common for one of the speakers to go bad in a set of headphones. It's possible - but there are more common problems that will cause this. I assume you have tried the headphones on another device to rule our a problem with the device you are currently listening with and using the other device, you still only hear audio from the left speaker.

The wires in the cord that connect the plug to the headphones are very thin and are susceptible to breaking. The most commmon place for these wires to break is at the point where the cord is flexed or stressed the most. Those points are:

1. Right at the plug
2. Where the wire enters into the left and right speaker.

There are occasions where I have seen the wires become unsoldered from the speaker terminals within the headphones themself.

What You Can Do:

1. While listening with the headphones, try flexing the cord back & forth at the plug and where the wire goes into the right speaker. See if the audio will come back and cut out again.

2. What I have done is cut the cord about 3" back from the plug. Go to Radio Shack and purchase a new plug and install a new plug on the cord.

3. You can also take the headphones apart and cut a few inches off the cord where it connects to the right speaker and reconnect the new end of the wire to the right speaker. The goal is to cut away the bad part of the cord and re-attach the good part back.

4. You can try to replace the entire cord but I haven't been able to find replacement (THIN) cords too easily.

Good Luck,

- Jim
