Question about SanDisk Sansa c140 MP3 Player
The headphone jack on my Sansa C140 is only outputting to one earbud. The headphones work OK on other players. Problem occurs w/both music and FM tuner (so it's not the music files). I'm guessing I have a loose connection on the headphone jack. Does anyone know how to open up the Sansa C100 series players. All attempts so far have failed (no screws, no visible clips, etc.) I can slip a fingernail/thin blade into the seams between the different parts (there are three major pieces), bu nothing has budged so far. (On the plus side, nothing has broken off either :-) )
I too had a problem with the headphone jack. It took me a while, and a few scratches on my Sansa C140 case, but I FINALLY figured out how to seperate the case.
1) POP the black top (with the buttons and display cover) off. Get under the edge and pry, working your way around. It's just snapped on.
2) With that cover off, you will see four (4) screws, one on each corner. Remove these. The BOTTOM will now come off (may require a little wiggling to slip the battery terminals out of their grooves).
3) You should now be left with the main board contained within the middle of the plastic case. Removing the board is a CHALLENGE as it is held (not tightly) by a couple of tabs, as well as the headphone jack and the connection port.
Be careful when working to get the board free. I ended up popping two of the solder-tabs off the board for the headphone jack when "prying" the board out of the case. Luckily I was able to fix it when re-soldering the jack to the board. And one of these may have already bad (requiring the repair in the first place).
Reverse the steps to put it back together, again being careful when re-inserting the board back into the casing.
Good luck. Hope this answer still find you in time...
