It is a very delicate operation, but it is possible to take the unit apart and "adjust" the connections in the jack on the player so that the headphone plug fits a little tighter. Its best left to a shop. If you have some basic electronics ability, you can do it yourself and save a ton of money. I had a similar problem with an old transistor radio, I used a rubber band wrapped around the body of teh radio and also the plug (it was a "right angle" That held it in tight enough to work till the radio finally gave up.

Sound works for radio not for music volume is up music is playing no sound from any headphones


Did you try plugging in a different set of headphones? If other headphones work, maybe you need new headphones.

Try playing music from your Sansa through the computer, while it is tethered. If you can do this, it may mean that the audio amplifier part of the Sansa is broken-- Usually this means, 'get another Sansa.'

Also, try gently wiggling the headphone plug to the left and right, while it is plugged in. If you get music on and off, its possible that the headphone connector on your Sansa has a broken connection. This is a VERY difficult problem to fix (without breaking or melting something else inside the case) and also usually means it is time to get another MP3 player.

My sandisk when you put in headphones only one


Verify that you've pushed the headphone jack all the way in. Sansas tend to have very tight headphone ports.

If not, try other headphones. If the others do the same thing, it's likely that your Sansa is damaged.

Sansa mp3 jack problems


Hi, have had loads of mp3 players and this has happenede quite frequently (im, sure you have tried it with different headphones, but if you havent do so) It happens when the headphone jacks, bends the metal contact in the socket, so you have to push in the headphone to on side to get stereo, so annoying! Have fixed this a couple of usb stick mp3 players before by taking them apart and cleaning the contacts with deoxit 5% (its a contact cleaner) then bending the contact back a little bit, sometimes its worked other times it hasn't, but I was only doing it on cheap £20 players
Your player is a nice 6gb player, and I really wouldnt reccomend taking it apart in any way, if you do you will end up voiding your warranty
If its still under manufactures warranty (between 1 and 2 years) and even if its not get in touch with sansa by email
http://www.sansa.com/contact_us
make sure you describe the problem clearly, giving your model number, and any serial numbers/product numbers you see on your player, Hope this helps

Sound only in right ear


Its either the jack or the connector in the device is the problem. You can try connecting other headphone, if this works, then the problem lies on the jack of the old headphone.

Head ear phones works


have you tried other headphones or earphones
some headphones lose connection in the wire  and will cause a short where one side works and the other doesnt
if this is not the problem may have a lose jack on the inside of the player and will probably have to have it serviced

Headphone jack


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. : )

Headphone jack


Note this solution is for the Sansa e200.

OK, same headphone jack problem here and a bunch of people have the same problem. It got so annoying that I decided to risk the consequences and rip this baby apart. Sure enough one of the jack legs had a cold solder joint (the solder had not completely reflowed over the pin). I could press on the edge and see the pin lift away from the PCB pad. Looks like the others were touched up by hand because the pins were completely covered but the pin for the left side had been left as is. It is also the hardest to get at (because the SD cage is right next to it) so I'm wondering if they got sloppy and have a major quality problem with these. It's an easy problem to fix if you have a fine point soldering iron (big IF). A few tips: 1) Once you have the 4 inner and 4 outer screws off you have to carefully pry off the front cover, so be careful here 2) you then have to gently get the PCB out by carefully taking out the connector side first 3) there may be a riser card you have to take off to access the culprit jack pin, it is attached with some doubled sided sticky foam. Hope this helps.
