Headphones only work if they aren't fully in

For some reason, my headphones only work if they are not fully plugged in. I know it's not the headphones because I tried them in something else and they work fine. Any suggestions??

Its a problem with the jack on the circuit board. If its less than 1 year, SanDisk will replace it. SanDisk Technical Support 1-866-726-3475 Best of Luck.

I had purchased an Ipod nano and when I try to plug in the ear phones I can still hear it coming from the nano. And if I turn around the plug for the earbuds the sound goes in and out.

Make sure the headphones are fully inserted. If the problem persists try a different set of headphones. If the problem is there with the second set then you have a defective jack and should return the nano.

ITouch 2nd g only plays music throuhg left side of all headphones

Try playing with the headphone plug, until you can also hear the right
channel and also try a different set of headphones as it is probably a
matter of an intermittent headphone jack, or plug, owing to sudden
snatching of the headphone plug from same, a very common problem.

I hear more from my right side of my ipod with headphones

There is 2 possible reasons this is happening, 1 is that you have better hearing in your right ear or it's possible that your headphones are tangled and if they are the sound waves will not come through fully.

Problems with Headphone and USB plugs

I share the same problem - I'm worried it's due to routine wear-and-tear on the jacks, so the connections are no longer solid. I hate to think I need to get it serviced for this. Usually buying a new cable has worked, but that gets expensive too... Anyone have a fix??

Cannot hear music

The bad news is that your headphone jack is most likely shot. The soldered connections inside are most likely broken. This is not repairable generally, at least not for a cost that would be reasonable. Music will play through your computer because it can be read off your player through the USB connection. Use it as a data storage drive and buy a new one, or a used one. I've seen used T30s on Amazon for around $30 to $40.

There is a reason for the headphone jack being loose. You either repeatedly plug and unplug your headphones, or the headphone's wire is to big. Nothing else to say, sorry!

Music loud, voice low-pitched

Found your question due to having the exact problem you described. New firmware, format... loaded new music, same problem. While switching to yet another set of headphones the sound got better momentarily. The case doesn't appear loose, but squeeze right next to the lcd and lyra name and the audio was fixed. For some reason the audio was mechanical sounding and the voice was almost non-existant unless pressure was placed on the player where described. I tightened the screw in the retaining strap hole and the one under the USB connector flap and all is well for now. Good Luck!!!!
