Question about SanDisk Sansa c250 (2 GB) MP3 Player (SDMX7-2048)

1 Answer

Head phone jack

The head phone jack on Ipod is shorting out. You can jiggle it and get sound in both earbuds but just the slightest movement makes it go out on one side.

    I have the same problem (earphone jack losing contact). I tried to open the player. Opened the back, and got out the battery. Then unscrewed 2 tiny black screws, and carefully clicked out the black plastic frame. Next, one other screw was found and unscrewed, but I cannot find a way to disassemble to the next layer... Can anyone help ?

    Pry apart the silver/black plastic pieces. In the lanyard hole (next to the headphone jack) is a good place to start. I'm stuck trying to figure out how to remove the screen so I can solder the headphone jack back into place.

Flip the Sansa face down with the headphone jack to the left. Take the cover off the battery then remove the 2 screws by the sync port. This frees up the plastic that covers the last screw. But before you can remove this piece you need to lift the 2 black tabs in the middle and slide your nail between the seam between the black and silver areas near the hold button. The rest comes apart easy or the couple I have fixed the headphone jack have.

The head phone jack is causing crackles and static noise and not a clear reception. I move the earbud jack around to get the right sound. Is there a way to permanently fix the headphone jack port?


It is very possible that the problem lies with your headphones and not the player. Have you tried to use a different set of headphones to see if that fixes the problem?

When I put my earbuds into my ipod touch only one side works


For the iPod nano you can replace the headphone jack your self for under thirty dollars. Even cheaper if you get the basic tool kit for it. :)


Step 1 Gather the needed tools. Copy an paste the URL below in your Browser window to view the needed items and purchase them if you wish. :)
http://www.rapidrepair.com/shop/1073-deluxe-tool-kit.html

Step 2 You need to remove the bottom bezel 1st. Take a flat head or safe open case tool and slide it in the crack of the bottom. Be careful not to pry to hard or you will break the bezel where the dock port hole is. This bottom piece is held on with mild adhesive.


Step 3 Once the bottom panel is removed, take your + driver and remove the 2 visible screws.


Step 4 There is one other screw that is hidden under the headphone jack. You will not be able to remove the bottom metal dock bezel until this hidden screw is removed. Take the flathead and pull the headphone jack out very slowly & carefully.
Once you have slid the new headphone jack into place just go backwards to reassemble.

The actual part is only one dollar! :) Here is the URL to view the part and decide if you wish to go that route instead of apples so called great rout of Charging a lot of money for something so small and simple.

Apple itouch 8 GIG earphones dont work properly


try getting new head phones if the new head phones dont work then it is the jack and u need to get it replaced. If it is the new 2nd gen ipod (has speakers on the bottom) u aren't going to want to check the plug it is dangerous to the ipod to take off the rear or front plate because u can damage the screen or wires and u will have even more things to fix.

Ipod Nano 4GB does not deliver sound


Try slowly and carefully twisting the head phone plug in the jack while music is playing. If it starts coming in in a choppy manner, then you may need to a) resawder the jack down or b) get a new ipod. I'd recommend b.

You need to get a new head phone jack installed. It should be free if it is still under warranty.

Sound only on left side. tried earbuds and head phones


Hey markallen407,

If you've tried several different pairs of headphones and have encountered the same problem with every pair, you could possibly be looking at a defective headphone jack. In some cases when headphones are unable to make a secure connection within the jack, they may only receive an audio signal through one of the two speakers.

Unfortunately, this means that you may want to seek repairs on your iPod at this time. If you are still covered under the manufacturer's warranty, I would strongly suggest contacting Apple first for more information or further assistance. Many manufacturers may be able to provide faster solutions than third-party service facilities for problems with their products, but remember that it may be necessary to ship your iPod out for repairs.

Additionally, please keep in mind that you may always bring your iPod to your local Best Buy™ store for service. Geek Squad® agents are able to provide support for most products we sell, and can even honor existing factory warranties for products that were purchased through other retailers.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.
