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.

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.

I have broke my headphone? now what can i do


depends on where it is broken and whether or not they are ear buds. ove ear headphones or even the on ear, can be easily repaired by soldering the leads back onto the respective speaker. however ear buds tend to be a bit tougher for a novice to solder. if you broke the cable off of the connector, you are better off buying a new pair of headphones modern wires used in the cables for headphones is coated with a colored (or clear, for the grounds) lacquer that is hard to clean off and still get a good connection. good luck, and i hope this helps.

Charging of sony music plyaer


Hello vabs008,

The Sony MP3 player in question appears to come with ear bud headphones, an ear bud extension cord, USB cable, and software CD-ROM. It does not appear to come with a charger and would require that you have a device with a USB port to provide power to the unit. However you can add an aftermarket USB AC adapter such as this one to allow charging without connection to a computer.

Best Regards,
Ken

Ipod and headphone problem


The headphone jack on all the apple products have issues (even their laptops). There is no easy fix, other than having the jack replaced, or remounted. A common issue is that it comes loose from the pc board, especially with the movement of the headphone cord. This is a design/functionality flaw.

Hope this helps some.

One earphone works


i had the same exact problem with mine. Reading around it seems to be a common problem with the Sansa line. I opened mine up and found that one of the solder points that holds the ear phone jack to the main board had come loose. I soldered it back and it works like a charm. Pretty easy too. If you have a soldering iron, just open it up and resolder the solder point that has broken off. You can read instructions for disassembly here: http://www.anythingbutipod.com/archives/2006/11/sandisk-sansa-c200-disassembled.php When you have it apart, looking at it from the side, with the jack to the right, the broken point should be the rear (closest to the circuitry) point. You will see a very small, not sure what to call it, chip on the board you have to solder a connection to. here is a diagram: http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e321/fuzzygoat/sansa-c200-disassembley-8.jpg Hope this helps.

Ear Jack


Theres a good posibility that the solder connections are the only thinbg wrong with the connections BUT theres a possibility that the Printed curcuit board its self is a flex board and that the flex connections are torn. If thats the case you probably wont be able to fix the unit. If you can open the unit then you can look at the connections and see if its just plain old solder connections?? Good Luck
