The headphone jack is loose from the circuit board.

If its less than 1 year old, SanDisk will replace it.

Otherwise, you can take it to a electronics repair shop, or someone who knows how to solder.

Best of Luck.

Sound works for radio not for music volume is up music is playing no sound from any headphones

Did you try plugging in a different set of headphones? If other headphones work, maybe you need new headphones.

Try playing music from your Sansa through the computer, while it is tethered. If you can do this, it may mean that the audio amplifier part of the Sansa is broken-- Usually this means, 'get another Sansa.'

Also, try gently wiggling the headphone plug to the left and right, while it is plugged in. If you get music on and off, its possible that the headphone connector on your Sansa has a broken connection. This is a VERY difficult problem to fix (without breaking or melting something else inside the case) and also usually means it is time to get another MP3 player.

So basically my left earbud doesnt work anymore, I dont get how this is possible, I bought them two weeks, one day I go use and its not working anymore, the right one works perfectly fine, i really need...

First try them in a different device,
if they still don't work properly - Your headphones are broken.
This can occur if they are pulled too hard - the slim guage wires that they use in these things can come apart pretty simply. My advice is to take them back and get new ones :)

My lenovo y 430 has no sound for hedset & subwoofer doesn`t work. ... and right speaker works but left one doesn`t what should i do?

Make sure that the correct playback device is set as default in sound properties.
If all is well there then you could try a pair of headphones to see if the sound is working.
If headphones work ok then it is down to your built in speakers, not much you can do unfortunatly unless you are still under warentee

I lost the sound on the right ear of my bose around-ear head phones and I checked the lines and nothing is cut, the left ear is working perfectly. Please help!

This may be your headphone jack (what you use to connect it to your ipod or speakers ect.). check the connection there, and if you see the wire became loose near it, that is most likely the problem. You can fix it! With a new headphone jack (available at the Source or Radioshack or other stores like that), and with some manual soldering (it's not too hard, I fixed my myself and I havn't soldered before.) you'll get those headphone to be as good as new. here are the steps to fix this problem.
1. cut your old headphone ******** and strip the wires. you should see two wires; one copper wire and one coloured wire (green or Red) on each cord. there is a total of 4 wires, two per cord.

2. Tin coat the wires. this means to burn the wires a bit (with the soldering iron) and put solder over them. this gets rid of the coating that is on the wires to stop them from shorting out in the cord and helps conductivity when soldering them onto your headphone jack.

3. there should be three holes on your new headphone jack. there should be two prongs left and right of the part you plug into the machine, and there should be one connected to the part that holds the wires once done.

4. connect the coloured wires (red and green) to the left and right prongs of the new jack and secure with solder. These are called the live (or hot) wires because they are the ones that send the signal that makes the sound.

5. connect both of the copper wires to the other hole and secure with solder. these wire are both ground wires, which are very important.

6. by the end, you should have connected four wires. two to the seperate prongs, and two to the third ground hole.

7. test your connection by trying to use your headphones. if it does not work (which may happen, don't get discouraged!) check your soldering. if it is touching any metal it shouldn't be, that means you have created a short circuit. simply burn off the solder (with the soldering iron) and try again.

8. keep trying until you get sound. good luck!

9. Once you get sound, you may want to secure the soldering job. you can either use two part epoxy and put this over your work, or you can tie a knot before you put the cover on you headphone jack. either will work just fine. Also, there sometimes are two metal protrusions that you can bend with plyers to help hold your chord in place.

10. enjoy your fixed, good as new headphones! Enoy hope this helped.
