Headphone jack the headphone jack on my 4GB sansa broke after 1 1/2 years or so, I love my device everything works great except now the sound'll only come out one side. has anyone ever opened one of these and soldered the jack? is it fairly straight forward? is there something unusual or even surprising worth paying attention to when opening the device? just thought I'd ask before opening it... thank you!

The Sansas Earphone Jack soldier is very cheap try bending it or placing something extra to hold the jacks connection to the player. when closed its not niticeable, no need for soldiering. Try it. Contact me if you want a video of what i did. hope this works.

the jack inside the unit either is bad or the solder connections are bad...you can re-solder the jack(if you know how to solder) and see if this fixes it...or else you'll have to replace the jack(which may be avail. through Radio Shack)

Sansa fuze mp3 4gb radio does not have any sound!!!


Check your headphones with another system, check your ipod with another headphone if the fault is now confirmed you may have a conection fault with the jack usually if another type had been pushed in. If you are electronics savvy then use right tools to slowly open device, use a good soldering low wattage iron with emi protection to solder up the output jack side. and still if no sound comes the audio amp ic. If not you have a damaged ic. Hope you have tried to reset the device. check this out! helpful? Good day

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.

Left side of earphones don't work


I have the same problem as well. you just have to take the headphones out, and not put them in all the way. just put them in partway, wait until you can hear out of both.

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.

Pin broke off in the headphone jack


hey jamie ,
you have no luck to get it out you have to go to a special shop to get the head phone jack out and if you don't want to do that then get a new one.

Headphone


YES there is a way.

you can head on over to radio shack , and look for an exact matching headphone jack replacement.

or order one.

then solder in the new one.

or if you are in the mood , you can look for a "junked/unwanted device" that has the correct headphone jack you are looking for and strip it out and use it as your new headphone jack.

I love that last option because it will not cost anything :-)

Shalom and may the nforce be with you , always.
