You will need a very small soldering iron (pencil) and solder and solder the jack back on the board

My mp3 worked fine, but all of a sudden my sound is not as it should be. I can hear the music quite fine, but the voices aren't hearable. Sometimes you can hear a voice clearly on some songs, but mostly it...

The earphone jack inside the player has broken the 'Ground' pin off the circuitboard. The jack needs to be resoldered. This does take an experienced technician with watchmaking skills.

I am only receiving sound out of one ear from my mp3

Open up the player and look at the headphone jack, there may be a loose conneciton that needs to be re-soldered in or the jack itself is faulty and will need to be replaced. You may be able to get one from

Loose earphone Jack on sony NW s705f


If you remove the "hold" switch from the back of the unit, you'll discover a screw. Remove the screw and gently life the metal off cover off, it's might appear stuck but this is ok, it's held in place with a bit of double sided tape. Once inside there are two more screws... and to remove the PCB, there's another few screws.. Have fun!

However, I'm thinking when you say loose, are you referring to the physical socket? Because inside the player the socket isn't mounted directly to the PCB, instead it's mounted to a super thin plastic with copper-like contacts which in attaches to the main-board. The actual socket is designed to be slightly loose turns this puts less stress on the PCB and it's held in place buy the track controller/collar...

My advice, if it works don't dismantle it..

Sound Only Comes Out Of The Right Earphone

If its less than 1 year old, have it replaced. Its a loose connection on the circuit board. SanDisk Technical Support 1-866-726-3475 Best of Luck.
