Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a problem with the headphone socket. When the headphones are plugged in there is no sound, and unless I jiggle the headphone jack around into a different position do I get sound. Any slight jolt or movement of the player and the sound disappears again or is reduced, with crackling etc. I have tried several sets of fully functioning headphones to confirm the problem exsists in the player's socket and not the headphones themselves.

Not an uncommon fault ,its easy to repair providing you can take the set apart then clean the contacts on the jack plug and bend them in a bit and away you go for another year or so

The headphone socket


When you move the headphone plug around and the sound cuts in and out that usually means that the terminals in the jack have corrosion on them. You can usually clean the jack with contact cleaner that is sold in home improvement stores.

Here's a video showing how to clean the headphone jack on a phone but the process is the same for any device that uses a headphone.

Having problem with audio, with auria tv (when unplug headphones, sound will not come back on tv)


The socket for the jack on the set has a leaf connection that when you insert the jack moves aside routing sound to head phones and cutting it off to speakers= the socket for the jack is out of position inside, either needs to be replaced or tweaked inside just a little.

Not much else can cause this if the headphones work.

When I plug my headphones into my iPod, there is no sound, unless I jiggle the cord around and do not plug them all the way in. They worked fine at the beginning, but do not work now.


I'm not certain it's not the I-Pod socket or the headphone jack that is playing up? If you can get another pair of headphones (a friends etc) and put them in the socket of the I-Pod, to test it that should clear it up. For if they don't work you know it's the I-Pod socket that's faulty.
If it's the Bose jack that's gone, you better see my tip on dodgy cable/plugs on headphones. You should be able to replace it with the 3.5mm type shown, but I think you can get the thinner type jacks.

My razzle. headphones only to hear sound.


I sprayed WD40 on the headphone plug and put it in and out of the headphone jack on the phone a few times. It seems that the jack gets stuck when the headphones are plug in but doesn't go back when the headphones are removed.

Left side quit working, not earbuds, i tried other sets


I had the same problem. the stereo mini jack connection to the circuit board of the mp3 player is broken or loose. I jiggled the jack around and the sound came back into both ears but that only worked for a little while and is annoying. Basically, unless you can re-solder the mini jack to the circuit board, or get someone to do it for you, your player is now just a flash drive.

If I jiggle the cord in the stereo outliet, the sound switches from left to right earpiece and has to be just right in the outlet to get both earpieces working at the same time.


If you plug the headphones into another device do they stay on solid?
The problem can be the cord/plug (headphones) or the socket which your plugging into. Socket might need re-soldered or replaced.

Loose headphone connection on mp3


Replacing a headphone jack on a Sansa is a risky endeavor that is bound to do further damage to your player - the original jacks are not orderable directly from Sandisk. Your best bet is to call Sandisk and get an in-warranty replacement.

Your headphone jack is probably damaged and needs replacement. Here is one I found on the net: Repair your broken "Hands Free" socket, soldering required. This item is also available pre-mounted to the board, ready to plug in. Free shipping.
