I have the exact same thing and i have to get a whole new player. if you keep your headphones cord in the mp3 jack it makes the headphone jack get bigger so it wiggles and you can only hear from one bud. you may not want to mess with it too much because otherwise you could ruin your mp3. ask a person at a electronic store and see if there is a way to make it last a little longer. its connected to the hard drive thats why you cant fix it completly

It could just be the earphones. Happened to mine last week, tried it with a different pair and it worked just fine.
Same thing has happened before with CD players and such, and replacing the earphones works every time.

I have this same problem, and appreciate the solution, but being a novice to this art, I wonder, how do you open up the sansa?

Posted on Jan 04, 2008

What a coincidence.  had the exact same problem today.  ur connection on the inside of the player between the circuit board and the headphone jack is probably broken.  I had to re-sauter mine.  just open it up and take a look

Poor contact with ear bud jack. Can this be fixed?


You can try to clean the headphone jack with rubbing alcohol. Use a q-tip. Just moisten q-tip as you don't want lots of liquid running into your device though the alcohol will dry quickly.

If it is a loose connection, you may have to open your device and need soldering skills to fix it. Try cleaning the jack first.

It only lets me listen to music in one ear


  • If you have a warranty I would definitely send it back to the manufacturer. Most companies will pay for shipping for warranty repairs as well. What sounds like has happened happens a lot. The plug the jack plugs into (inside the Mp3 player) gets a cold soldier joint or the jack on the ear buds gets caught on something one to many times and breaks a soldier joint loose.

  • I usually open the media players and reheat the soldier joints myself. If you have already tried a different pair of ear buds it is almost certainly the jack inside the MP3.

  • Hope this helps.

Every single o ne of my headphones one side is not working. i tried many electronics


  • If you have several different head pones that completely work on other players but only partially work on that MP3 player then it is pretty clear you have a cold soldier joint where the input jack for the ear buds connects to the circuit board. I see it all the times. The jack plug for the MP3 player gets bumped bumped bumped and pretty soon this happens.

  • Easy fix though. Just pull the back of the MP3 player off. You will see the jack input. Take a soldier gun and heat it up and just barely melt all soldier points (3 or 4 points is all) where the input connects to the board. This should fix your problem. I've had this happen to every one of my sons MP3 players.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Sansa clip headphone jack -- headphones work fine on other players or phone, but clip plays only one ear. If i jiggle the headphones thingie inside of jack i get sound in both ears sometimes. 1) Any...


the jack inside the unit either is bad or the solder connections are bad...you can re-solder the jack(if you know how to solder) and see if this fixes it...or else you'll have to replace the jack(which may be avail. through Radio Shack)

Left side quit working, not earbuds, i tried other sets


I had the same problem. the stereo mini jack connection to the circuit board of the mp3 player is broken or loose. I jiggled the jack around and the sound came back into both ears but that only worked for a little while and is annoying. Basically, unless you can re-solder the mini jack to the circuit board, or get someone to do it for you, your player is now just a flash drive.

One one ear bud works on my in ear headphones


YOU HAVE A BROKEN WIRE IN YOUR HEADSET, OR IN THE INTERNAL JACK CONNECTION. TRY A DIFFERENT HEADSET. IF THE SAME PROBLEM OCCURS THE PHONE JACK MUST BE REPAIRED.

Only the left ear bud has sound


Hey NoRightSound,

If your earbud headphones function normally with other devices, there are a number of reasons why this problem may be occurring, including faulty connections within the iPod itself or a potentially defective headphone jack. While both of these issues can typically be resolved fairly easily, I would first suggest contacting your local Apple-authorized service center for a complete diagnostic to pinpoint the exact cause of the problem.

Remember that if your iPod is still under the original manufacturer's warranty, you can always call Apple directly for technical support over the phone in addition to working with a technician in your area.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

More than likely the ear bud or the wiring is damaged. Try set from a friend that you know works for confirmation.
