Try reseting it to factory settings. in other words recovery mode. to do this simply plug it into your computer. Next, puh the hold button until the orange is showing. Now you want to push AND hold down the record button AND the power button at the same time. after a few short seconds, a black screen should come up and say welcome to recovery mode. it may take a few tries to put it into recovery mode by the way. if this doesn't work you will have to take it to where you bought it becuase it's probably the headphone jack is most liley damaged. if it's damaged buy a new one cheap here. www.ebay.com If you need more resources about recovery mode or of you have more questions, here is a link to the sansa e200 series forums. http://forums.sandisk.com/sansa/ i hope this helped you. : )

I can hear only from right headphone of my sony bluetooth


Either the left headphone is shot or the headphone jack is messed up. Try a different set of head phones if its same result see about replacing the jack.

Hello, My left headphone are not working, meaning, no audio. Is there a way I can fix this? If so, how (step by step for Dummies please)


The headphone may be faulty - may have a broken wire leading to the left headphone.
Try a different headphone to see if this headphone is OK, if so the the other headphone is faulty.
If this headphone is also does not work on the left headphone then the MP3 player phone jack is faulty and either the phone jack needs replacing or it needs resoldering onto the circuit.
This is not a job for a Dummy, you need a friend who knows electronics.

Headphone jack requires bending the headphone jack to a side to get stereo. this is the coby mp725 16 gig love the unit. got it as a gift. had to send my first unit in due to headphone jack not working....


This problem is common with a lot of MP3 players. It is caused by excessive movement of the headphone jack and causes the headphone jack has worked loose from the circuit board.
To fix this problem the MP3 player needs dismantling and the headphone jack needs resoldering onto the circuit board to get the headphone working properly.

Music only comes from the left headphone


This is a common problem with the headphone jack - if you google "ipod 30Gb headphone jack repair" there are both places that will replace the jack and places that will sell you the new "ribbon" connector and hold switch and jack (it's all one unit). If you're comfortable opening the iPod and have a TINY (#000) jeweler's philips head screwdriver you can replace the unit with no soldering. It helps if you have patience and small fingers and good light; you'll have to fasten the ribbon connector carefully. I paid under $10 for my last part but I've seen the same part for $30+, so caveat emptor. For that price they should put it in for you...

My headphones wont work everthing else is fine


Hi There,                The input for the head phone is a 32 ohm input. You need to get the proper 32ohm headphone for it. It seems that you tryed others but there are 16 ohms and 32ohms headphones. But if they do not work then it is your input connection or the device if your headphones work on other devices.You should bring the product back as a faulty device to the store and exchange it with your reciept then.  For the headphone that works on one side it can be the headphone jack that does not fit properly into the hole input (female jack).The one side does not touch or connect for it to work. It happens to cheap headphones and some good ones too. The male jacks on the headphones are slightly off it specification size by a small amount that it is not noticed by the naked eye, so it does not get a good connection.Try another head phone if you haven't tryed that

Ipod head phone jack no good


I agree with Solution 5. The copper pins in the jack that make the connection to your headphone plug are bent in such a way that they are springy and will make a good tight connection to the plug. When those copper connections get worn, they are not so springy and they bend inward causing you to lose audio on one side of your headphones unless you wiggle the plug and find that sweet spot that makes a connection. Then you have to hold the wire to keep pressure on it... it gets annoying.

You can open the case and there are slots in the headphone jack that you can get a hook scribe (like the dentists use) or safety pin to bent those copper connections back out. Don't bend them too far or they will break. You can also pick get a new part for $25 or a used part much cheaper. Once you iPod is open, it's a matter of a couple screws and a ribbon cable to replace the jack. Problem solved!

Audio only plays from left headphone


The contacts inside the headphone jack are made of a springy metal there is one for the left and one for the right speakers. This happened to my Blackberry and I took it apart and got inside the jack block and re-sprung the contacts. It worked for me... I used a dental pick.
