Question about SanDisk Sansa c250 (2 GB) MP3 Player (SDMX7-2048)
I bought my Sandisk Sansa c250 about a year ago. It was working great until very recently it stopped playing music in the left ear, for no apparent reason. If you push and twist it just right you can get it to play in both ears, but if you dont hold it there the sound will go out in the left again. Also, if you put in the headphones about half way you can get sound in both ears, but its significantly quieter than if it were in all the way and the left ear is a lot weaker than the right. The thing is, I had this same problem with my Sandisk 512 mb player, which also worked perfectly for a little over a year. It's the reason I bought the Sansa in the first place. What gives?
That happened to me. It is fixable, but you need to open the caseing of the mp3 player itself. what hapened was that one of the dongles connecting the jack to the main chipset lost connection. you probably bent the headphone thing too much and it released.
to open the sansa, you must take out the battery. then you should find 2 black screws near the edge of the casing. Unscrew them and take off the black plastic cover. You should see the bottom is now totally silver. Near the headphone jack there should be another screw, Unscrew it. These are the only screwes you will need to unscrew from now. Next, Pry off the screen cover to reveal the chipset. Remove the connection from the chipset to the button pad. Take a standard screwdriver and carefully pry out the chipset, revealing the headphone jack. Be sure that the 3 dongles hooking it up to the chipset are in place. Put some tape on however you like, just be sure its tight, and be sure it doesnt interfere with any of the side buttons. Then add some more tape underneith the dongle for more support (do this unless you have a sodder, then sodder the dongles back on. Put the chipset back in the casing and replace the faceplate (dont forget to connect the button pad back to the chipset), and replace the back thing. Put the battery back in and test it. If it doesnt work then add a little tin foil into the back on the dongle. It should work.
