Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players
I too had that problem and when I took it in to be repaired, I was told that the unit was out of warranty. So I fixed it myself. This is what I did:
1. Removed the back and the battery
2. Removed the the top cap that holds everything in place.
3. Removed the on/off/lock buttom
4. Removed the two small screws from the top
5. Removed the unit from the case. This was a little tricky and took some finagling.
6. Once removed you see the circuits. I removed the part with the jack which had a metal covering.
7. Removed the metal covering which had two small screws.
8. The connectors in the jack I scrapped with my tiny screwdriver and I pushed them in more to make a tighter connection when the headset goes in.
9. I put everything back together and voila! The chit is working like new.
If you're not brave enough to do this yourself, ask a friend who is tech savy and a do it yourselfer.

The Sansa's are notorious for the headphone jacks failing.

SOURCE: HEADPHONE JACK DOES NOT WORK
what kind of headphones do you have??? some Mp3s cannot supply enough power to those big headphones out of the market right now... try to use a earbud or earphone first and if they are not working it means that the jack is defective
