Plug a 1-to-2 audio jack from the headphone jack of the Sansa to two audio inputs (red and white) of the TV. Change your TV's source channel to the appropriate input (AV1, AV2, Video 1, Video 2, etc). Find the song on your Sansa and press play. you may have to adjust the volume on the Sansa AND on your TV.
do you mean out of the headphones. if so just try moving the headphone plug around in the audio jack but also keep the music plying to tell if you have figured the problem out or maybe just try a new or different pair of headphones
i had the same problem, the headphone jack on the sansa is loose. I opened it all up, and saw that one of the connections on the headphone jack was loose. you can sauter it and it should work clearly again.
The jack in the e250s is not made of adamantium, so it can actually go bad; however, if you try different headphones and thus determine that either: - All the headphones simultaneously went bad in one side - Your left ear has issues - The Sansa is only cranking out one channel; and -the jack feels a little off, or -perfectly good mp3s are being played off-balance; AND the balance has not been misconfigured in Settings.
...well then, the plot's moving forward and you can get your ear fixed, or stop the cat from killing your headphones, or re-load Sansa or Rockbox.org firmware, or fix the Settings, or see to the appropriate repair to the jack (depending on your warrantee status and skill with soldering irons and ordering off Jameco.com etc.)
Call Sandisk and tell them about your problem. I had the same exact problem. The headphone jack inside is loose. Talk to Sandisk and don't worry about the box, the customer is always right. But after they send you a new sansa e250, sell it on ebay and buy a durable mp3 player like the iriver t10 series. My old iriver dropped on the floor plenty of times and it's still working after 3 years.
