SOURCE: Ear Jack

I had the same problem you had on a Dell DJ 30 I wrapped aluminum foil around my headphone jack and I plugged the headphones in. When I took my headphones out, the aluminum foil got stuck inside the player. I put the headphones back in and tested it and it worked. The aluminum foil is well placed in there and doesn't come out. I just did this a few minutes ago, so I am not sure of the long-term effects of this. Some articles I have read on the internet seem to suggest that this can cause a short-circuit. I am not sure and cautious about this. I will continue to use my mp3 player, but I might discontinue use in my car, for fear of shorting out my car speaker.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Audio Problems With MP3

First thing you wanna do is to try another set of headphones. If it still sounds muffled then theres a fault in the audio output section and these things are non user serviceable. Your gonna need to send back to the manufacturer. Good Luck

SOURCE: how to fix a broken headphone jack on mp3 player

Have you tried another set of headphones? Normally the headphones wire is what goes, instead of the jack itself.
I've never opened one of those up, but I guess you could re-solder a new jack into it if you were adept at that sort of thing...Finding the right jack is the trick, I'm afraid.
I'd repost your question to the sandisk forum board here. Also see this list. It sounds like yours is a common complaint, and you may have good luck contacting sandisk technical support and getting it repaired...
Good luck.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Zune only plays music out of one ear


When I first got my Zune the sound was really bad, but it turned out that I hadn't pushed the headphone jack all the way in. Don't be afraid to use a little force because it's necessary. I'm not sure if this is what's wrong or not, though. Hopefully it's a not a problem with the device.

I CAN'T HEAR ANYTHING! HELP!


That has happened to me before, what happened was where you input the earphone jack was broken, no matter how many different headphones i tried none worked. Now I understand this doesn't help, but it might save a lot of time.
Although one short short term thing i did find out though, is that if you push the headphone jack to the side, sometimes you will receive a little sound.

Headphone prob


hmm...alright then.
1. Check the volume (but I expect you've probably done this)
2. Instead of putting mp4 or m4a on the computer try to put mp3 or wma on the player
3. Does the USB work too? The usb is also out of the headphone jack. If there's problems with that, then there's problems with the jack
4. Have you been pulling hard on the USB to take it out of the jack? If so the headphone jack part of the jack may have gotten a bit loose.
5. Call RCA. Chances are the person you get is from India. Talk slowly and tell them your problem.
