Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Internal Connection My headphone connection seems loose. For my headphones, the stream to only one ear comes through. I have an adapter to listen through my car radio. Sometimes it works fine. Sometimes the sound fades in and out. Wiggling the connector back and forth makes it better or worse.

Where do I find the model number


The words "red and blue lights", "paired", "connect" and "beeps" make me believe that your headphones are Bluetooth-enabled. However, I never heard of a TV that is Bluetooth-enabled. Therefore, I do not think that you will be able to pair, nor connect your headphones to your TV. If you want to listen to your TV wirelessly, you will have to use regular (not Bluetooth) wireless headphones, which consist of two pieces: the headphones and a transmitter that connects to the audio output(s) of your TV and transmits the sound from your TV to the headphones wirelessly.

Earphones wont work with hy-2008-det turntable


I'm assuming it does have a headphone socket!
If you plug the headphones in and wiggle the plug around whilst inside it might cause some life to the headphones, even if it is only for a short time. If this is the case the headphone socket (not plug) is faulty. It could still be faulty if there is no connection. The contacts can easily break in the socket leaving no connection to the headphones.
It would be very cheap to replace the headphone socket.

Headphones are a convenient way to experience audio-rich entertainment on your own terms. Headphones allow you to customize your listening level without disturbing other people in your general vicinity.
Headphone cables can be a hassle, however, so many new headphone models feature a wireless connection.
PCs tend to be wire jungles, so eliminating one wire from a potentially jumbled mess can be an intriguing feature of wireless headphones.
Connecting wireless headphones to your PC allows you to take advantage of the benefits of listening to your movies, music or games through headphones without the struggle of the headphone cable.
Charge up or place batteries in your headphones and transmitter.
Wireless headphones require power to function.
Many wireless headphones come with a charger base.
You need to charge your headphones before you attempt to connect them to your PC.
Some wireless headphone models require batteries, which you must install before you connect the headphones to the PC.
Connect the transmitter to your PC.
The transmitter may connect via the PC's headphone jack or USB port.
If the transmitter connects to the headphone jack, plug it in and check your headphone's user guide to verify how to synchronize the headphones to the transmitter.
If the transmitter connects via USB, you will likely need to install software to use your wireless headphones.
If your wireless headphones are Bluetooth-compatible, continue to the next step.
Pair your headphones via Bluetooth to your PC.
If your PC is not Bluetooth-equipped, you will need to install a Bluetooth USB dongle.
Turn on your headphones and open the Bluetooth software on your PC.
Scan for Bluetooth devices from your PC.
Your headphones should appear.
Select the headphones and follow any further instructions to complete the pairing process.
Test the headphones.
Pick out a song or a video and play it on your PC.
Connect your wireless headphones and verify that you can hear the audio.
Find the volume controls on your headphones and adjust them to make sure the volume changes correctly.
If your headphones are not functioning properly, verify that the headphones are turned on.
If the headphones are on and you do not hear anything, verify that your transmitter is functioning properly and that you have your volume turned up on your PC.
Recharge your headphones when you are finished using them.
To ensure that the headphones are ready anytime you need them, you must always place them on the charging base when you are finished using them.
If the headphones are battery-powered, be sure that you always have spare batteries on hand.

It sounds like you have a faulty connection between the headphones and the music device. Try fiddling with the port of your computer, iPod, or whatever else you use to listen to music. If the headphones do this on more than one device, it's a problem with them. Fiddle with the cord while you listen and see if you can target the bad area of the cord. If you can manage to listen to the headphones successfully while tweaking the cord, you might be able to use them still, if not they're probably blown or dead. Hope this helps =]

I can only get sound out of one ear. Sometimes, if I move the chord around, I can get sound our of both ears. It comes and goes.


I have had this problem several times. It can be due to a number of things
Firstly, try the MP3 player with a different set of headphones, if both ears work, then the headphones are the problem. Check the adaptor and/or cabling for any damage or defects. If the internal cabling is damaged, you will need to go and buy a new pair.
If the problem is the player itself, try checking the headphone port for dust or any other artefacts blocking the way. This can cause he connection to fail and therefore lose sound.
On a side note, if you love listening to music, i would suggest a high quality set of headphones. Sennheiser (my personal favourites) and Shure are both a VERY good brand to go for. You do pay a bit more, but sound quality and build quality are faultless.

Motorola S9-HD will not turn on or charge


I had this problem as well, and my issue stemmed from a faulty charger that came with my headset. I would suggest trying to charge your headphones with a different cable. I found that I could charge my headphones with the microUSB cable that connects my laptop to my external hard drive.

When headphones are connected to my laptop sound still comes from


Double-check that you're connecting to the headphones/audio out jack and not the microphone jack.

Beyond that, if your headphones aren't working (assuming you have audio without them) then you have a hardware problem between motherboard and headphone jack.
