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.

My headphones have a loud click in the right ear which happens when I move, making listening to music whilst walking/on bus unbearable. It's nothing to do with the mp3s, as it happens when unplugged


stop by a Radio Shack or Best Buy and ask for a stereo to mono adapter for your headphones. You will get the same sound on both sides. Otherwise you have a either a damaged plug or a damage jack. Good Luck.

Why is the sound in one ear only?


It's probably a broken wire.

First, make sure it happens with those headphones no matter what you plug them into. If you're using them on your computer, try plugging them into your phone or someone else's computer. If you're using the quarter-inch adapter, try plugging into something that will take the eight-inch plug (the picture I'm seeing of your headphones shows an eighth-inch plug with a quarter-inch adapter). If the problems goes away, then it's either the adapter or the audio jack on the original device. But a new quarter-inch adapter online or at your local Radio Shack. If that doesn't fix it, then the jack on your device is shot, and your best bet is probably to get a new device. (Before I spent the money on a new device, I'd borrow another set of headphones, just to be sure that the problem persists no matter what headphones you use.) If the device is a computer, then you can buy a USB sound card (which plugs into a USB port and has mike and headphone jacks on the other end) instead of replacing the whole computer.

But it's more likely that the problem will persist no matter what you plug into, and it's your headphones. It's probably a broken wire; sometimes if you jiggle the wires going into the dead earpiece, you'll get crackling to confirm this diagnosis. But it doesn't really matter why the headphones don't work; no matter what's broken, the repair is more expensive than replacement. Time for new headphones.

The above answer assumes that you are listening to a stereo sound source. In addition to trying your headphones on another device, you should make sure you're listening to a stereo sound.

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.

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.
