Pin broke off in the headphone jack

My headphone jack broke off in the plug of my e260. I can't get it out. Is there a way to open the case and push it out from the bottom. Please help! I can't listen to my Sansa if i can't plug in a headphone jack.I tried with needles and tweezers but with no luck. Thank you.

Hey jamie ,
you have no luck to get it out you have to go to a special shop to get the head phone jack out and if you don't want to do that then get a new one.

Jack problem


This unsually indicates a bad connection with the jack. Not the headphone jack, but the connector on the player. My son had that issue so I ended up opening the unit up and resoldering the connector to the circuit board. Don't recommend doing that. You'll need to have a technician do that or if it's still under warranty take it in.

Headphone jack


The Sansas Earphone Jack soldier is very cheap try bending it or placing something extra to hold the jacks connection to the player. when closed its not niticeable, no need for soldiering. Try it. Contact me if you want a video of what i did. hope this works.

Ipod head phone jack no good


I agree with Solution 5. The copper pins in the jack that make the connection to your headphone plug are bent in such a way that they are springy and will make a good tight connection to the plug. When those copper connections get worn, they are not so springy and they bend inward causing you to lose audio on one side of your headphones unless you wiggle the plug and find that sweet spot that makes a connection. Then you have to hold the wire to keep pressure on it... it gets annoying.

You can open the case and there are slots in the headphone jack that you can get a hook scribe (like the dentists use) or safety pin to bent those copper connections back out. Don't bend them too far or they will break. You can also pick get a new part for $25 or a used part much cheaper. Once you iPod is open, it's a matter of a couple screws and a ribbon cable to replace the jack. Problem solved!

Lost sound


It's probably a problem with either the headphone jack itself, or the jack's connection to the main board. You cannot fix this without opening the case up. The best thing to do would be to take it to a repair shop where they can either replace or re-solder the connection of the headphone jack. I have a similar problem with my old one, where if you push the headphone end to one side, the sound comes in on both, but if you let go, it only goes to one. On mine, it's because a connection or two are loose between the jack itself and the board.

Speaker Doesn't Work


If you use a plug in set of headphones often, you have probably caused the contacts to spread apart inside permanently. The only solution (if that is the case) is to replace the headphone jack, or to (for the brave) attempt to insert a pin inside the jack and open the contacts so they are not pressed against the outside of the jack assembly.
