Bad earphone jack on e280

I bought several of these for the family. One of them has a bad earphone jack - plays only the right side. I'm sure the contacts inside are bent. Any ideas how to fix it? Thanks.

Volume balance is not the same on both speakers or headphones


The bad news: There is no way to fix one that is broken or not working correctly unless you pay more than it would cost to just replace it. You can get headphone jack/hold buttons at www.ipodmods.com. They cost approximately $50. You can pay ipodmods to install it for you, but it is unnecessary when you can just as easily install it yourself considering they charge a ridiculous amount just for a simple task. You may also be able to find the proper headphone jack for less money on eBay.

I hope this helps.

2 sets of headphones will play only on left earphone.


Dirt inside of the headphone jack can be the culprit. If you have canned air, you can blow it out, or twist the headphone connector inside the jack to clean the contacts.

IPod Not Working


Hi,

Does your iPod come on? If not, your battery could be bad.

If you can see the music playing, but cannot hear anything, you could have a bad earphone jack or a bad circuit board.

You can tell if it is the battery the iPod will not come on at all unless it is attached to the computer or to a power outlet.

If you can move the earphone jack around while playing music and hear something, then it is the headphone jack. If you move the jack around and hear nothing, then I would suspect the circuit board.

If you have a device that can play your music out of the USB port on the iPod, you can make sure that it is the circuit board that way. When the circuit board is bad, music will not play out of the headphone jack or the USB port.
Hope that helps.

Bad Tracks


For the bad tracks go Under Settings, look for Mode or USB Mode. Put the unit in MSC (if that's available) or Rhapsody.

Connect it to the computer. See what driveletter it is :F: Sansa E280...G: Sansa E280... whatever it is.

Click Start/Run and type in chkdsk F:/f (or G: or whatever the letter is) . That will check and may fix the bad files.

I hope that helps

Sansa earphones


first try using different headphones, if the problem isn't with the headphones then it's the mp3 you'll probably have to send it in to get it fixed.
