Sound is in mono thru earpiece (right is ok, left is the problem)
The problem is with the connector into the MP3 Player, when I wiggle or push the earpeice connector in I get stereo, but obviously it's difficult to keep holding it in this position - any suggestions to resolve this problem!! Many thanks

Did you try plugging in a different set of headphones? If other headphones work, maybe you need new headphones.
Try playing music from your Sansa through the computer, while it is tethered. If you can do this, it may mean that the audio amplifier part of the Sansa is broken-- Usually this means, 'get another Sansa.'
Also, try gently wiggling the headphone plug to the left and right, while it is plugged in. If you get music on and off, its possible that the headphone connector on your Sansa has a broken connection. This is a VERY difficult problem to fix (without breaking or melting something else inside the case) and also usually means it is time to get another MP3 player.
" Some DVD\'s sound fine whilst others have background sounds but no
voices. I do have an old model TV that has mono sound.Would that cause
" Hi, I wrote a short article for someone who had a similar problem a few days ago. I will edit it for you so that it fits. Here it is. Your DVD player should have output connectors in the
back of it to plug your amplifier or receiver into. If you have a Stereo
system (no surround sound speakers, or front center speaker) connect
the DVD Audio Cables on the back of the DVD player to the STEREO (or MIXED ) Output
Jacks. If it is connected to the Left Front and Right Front jacks of
the "Surround Sound" output jacks instead of Stereo(or MIXED) then the dialog
will be sent to the CENTER channel output. If you have no center channel
speaker you will not hear it. Thus no dialog. NOTE: In your case for the TV that is mono, here is the solution. 1 Connect a stereo pair of RCA cables (red and white "male" connectors at each end) to the Mixed or Stereo Output of the DVD player (NOT ANY SURROUND OUTPUTS). 2 Purchase an RCA type "Y" connector that has 2 female to a single male connectors on it. Walmart about 3 dollars. 3 Plug the single male plug of the Y connector into the back of the TV set's single mono audio input. 4 Connect the stereo RCA pair from the MIXED output of the DVD player into the Y connector that is now on the back of yourTV. 5 Run your yellow Video output from the DVD into the Back of the Set's yellow input. That should do it. The sound should be clear and correct with dialog, effects and music. Hope this helps, Best, Mark
If it's all music on the mp3 player,then try a different pair of headphones. If still no sound, try partially unplugging, plugging in the headphones and try wiggling the connector .If there is still no sound, then try erasing all the songs on it and restore the device. If that doesn't help, then it's probably time to replace the mp3 player since the headphone jack is damaged.
Press the AB button to toggle between Audio Play, Radio, and Voice Record. Use the left/right scroll to highlight Radio. Then press the center button or play/pause button once to select radio.
You will see FM Radio in the upper left corner of the display. Under that you will see either Preset followed by a number OR Channel. If it is on Preset, you can use the left/right scroll to switch between preset stations. If you press and hold the AB button, the player will scan through all frequencies to find the strongest stations in your area and set those as the default preset stations. When on a particular station, press and hold the record button to delete that station from your presets.
Press the center button once to switch to Channel (or back to Preset). Under Channel, you can manually scroll through the frequencies yourself. Push left or right and hold for about a second to find the next available station.
Press the play/pause button once to toggle between Mono and Stereo.
Those are all the functions I've found so far. Hope it helps.
Simplest solution, from experience: make sure your headphone jack is pushed all the way into Zen 3.5 output jack. Sometimes it will feel like it's clicked in but you need a little extra push to get it all the way in.
Another thing to look at: I pretty sure the is a preference setting that controls right/left balance (my son has my Zen right now). If you can find this control, it could be set all the way to one or the other side.
Give it a try, or see if resetting zen helps.
ok... when your looking at it from the front (screen forward) on the right there are 4 buttons.. the top button is play/pause push that the turn on the mp3 player. underneath the play/pause button is the stop button this stops the song and when you hold the stop button down it turns off the mp3 player. the next buttons are the skip forward and skip backward buttons..
on the left side, the very top button the longer shaped one is the +/- volume button. underneath the +/- button is the equalizer button push this to changed the sound of the device.. and the last button i have yet to figure out.. i hope this helps you..
