Stuck on startup screen and sister's sansa headphone jack problem

Anyways, both my sister and I got our sansas for christmas and about a month ago, my sansa just got stuck on the startup screen and won't go any further. I've tried holding down the menu/power button and many things but it just is frozen. The problem my sister is having is the left earbud will cut in and out and she's tried many pairs of headphones so we know those aren't the problem. Anyways, I need some advice with what to do. Thanks

My Sansa Clip 1G's screen has completely gone out &

It is not a good mp3 player - you have more than one hardware issue. The replacement headphone jacks are not available, and would require major electrical work to install anyways (bootleg DIY fixes, such as those shown on YouTube, only succeed about half of the time). That issue alone would justify getting an in-warranty exchange.

But, due to your screen problem, the LCD controller circuit is also bad. Mp3 repair for such issues is not cost-effective AT ALL, even in areas where such services are available - you could buy 6 of these for the cost of repair.

That player has a 1-year warranty - go ahead and call Sansa and get it replaced.

Headphone jack

I had to take mine apart and re-solder the headphone jack. It was amazingly easy, but if you don't do electronics repairs, I would suggest getting help. Everything is very tiny! This type of head phone jack is modular and soldered directly to the tiny internal circuit board. It is poorly anchored by the outside of the case where you plug into it, so most of the stress of pluggin and unplugging the headphones is put directly on the three tiny little solder joints. This causes one (or more) of them to break eventually. Mine lasted only about two months. And, I was carefull very gentle with it! This will cause one side or the other, or both speakers to lose their signal so that only one side works or worse, niether side works anymore. Consequently, I don't unplug mine anymore. If it breaks again, I may try to fix it. It only takes a few minutes. But, I'm hoping I don't ever get to that point.
