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.

My ipod classic is only playing out of 1 headphone, it is the same with all headphones


Step 1:
Your trusty iPod has been a close and reliable friend for a long time but one morning only the sound of air comes through the headphones. The likely culprit is a loose or broken headphone jack that is in need of repair. Rather than spend an exorbitant amount of money to have someone fix it you can easily make the repair on your own and have your iPod friend back. Read on to learn how to fix a broken headphone jack for a fifth generation 30GB or 60GB iPod video.

Open the iPod case with a small flathead screwdriver by slipping it under the centerline of the case. You will find a series of clips you have to release in order for the case to open up about an inch. Locate the headphone jack connection and verify that there are no broken wires. Fix broken wires quickly by twisting the wires back together and wrapping with electrical tape. Test the iPod for sound by connecting your headphones to the jack. Replace the wires completely if you find static coming from the iPod jack. Fold a business card twice so that it wants to unfold and slip it into the case over the blue sponge. This creates the pressure needed to hold the jack in place and allow a solid connection. Push the case together without engaging the clips on the side and test to make sure the jack is now working. Try a thicker business card or fold the first one again to get enough pressure onto the jack connection if the first card didn't fix the problem. Press the case fully together until the clips click into place. Use extra care when inserting your headset to ensure the jack remains in place.

When i turn my sansa e260 on the screen says key locked and under that it says system shutdown


There's a slide switch on the top of the unit, near the headphone jack. Slide the switch away from the jack to unlock the unit.

If that doesn't do it, then the plasic piece under the switch is broken, and you'll have to open the unit to fix it.

Can my sansa e260 hook up to ipod stuff like speakers... it looks like it would fit


You can connect to anything through the headphone jack on the top of the unit. This will let you use iPod speakers and the like. Do NOT use the USB connector at the bottom to connect to iPod accessories; the pin-outs are different and will not work (in fact, they may cause damage).

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.

My sansa e260 will not play with my jvc kx810 car stereo connected thru usb


The Sansa doesn't play through the USB connector. Plug the stereo into the Sansa's headphone jack instead.

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.
