The earphone jack is loose, sometimes interrupting one or both sides. I've tried several sets and the problem is with the player. Is there a way to tighten it up?

Not realy, the socket may be faulty or dry solder joints has formed between the socket and the circuit board.
You may be able to DIY if you have the skills, if not then cost of repair may not be worth it as MP3 players are not expensive.

The earphone jack seems to be loose, sometimes cutting out one side, sometimes both. I tried several sets and it points to the jack being loose, not the earphones. Is there a way I can open the case to...


The two rubber dimples on the other end of the back side of the unit can be removed to expose a pair of screws.
At that point the cover can be removed., Pushing in on the sides of the case will help the side and top catches release.

Once onside you can see 2 more screws on the top (head phone jack) end that will allow the board to come up.

But at that point you better be good with SMT. The headphone jack is fed by feed throughs to pads that are likely ripped off.

Have Fun :-)

When I plug the earphone jack into my MP4 player, I only get sound from one earpiece. I have tried several earphone sets to determine that it is not a problem with the earphones


Hi, this is a very common problem, after you have pulled the ear phones in and out a few times the solder on the earphone socket becomes brittle and breaks making you lose the connection with the circuit board, now as you have ruled out it being an earphone fault then the only possible problem could be the solder.

now sometimes if you wiggle the earphone at the part that goes into the mp3 you can sometimes get the sound working again, but this dont always work so dont rely on this,

now the problem you have is that the cost of getting this part fixed would cost a lot more than buying a new mp4 player.

the cheapest place to try and get this fixed is a tv repair shop, tell them exactly what the problem is so they dont have to test it and see how much they will charge you to resolder the earphone socket back in place properly.

that would be the cheapest option and could possibly get it working again if they will do the work for you

im sorry their is no easy fix but without getting the earphone socket re-soldered it will just never work

let me know if you need further assistance ok

The MP3 player earphones only work sometimes. Left will work the right doesn't, the right works the left doesn't. Somethimes if you move the MP3 player, neither one of the speakers work. We purchased new...


Sounds as though either the earphone's Plug isn't the right size or plug end shape... OR the actual Jack is faulty, and only making intermittent connections... or the wire to them is broken. What is best is take the MP3 unit along when buying any head/earphones and try them in shop.. As for Walmart... Talk to a manager and demand a refund or a change of type... Don't take NO for an answer. Also you don't need to spend that amount for them... any cheap pair that works will be OK. Try before you buy.

Shure in-ear phone


I plugged the earphones in another mp3 player and they worked fine. So the interruption of sound must be in the connection between the Mp3 and earphone plug. So the earphone wiring gets a verdict of not guilty. I will do some experiments involving the female plug on the original mp3 player. That is where the problem is.

Sound Only Comes Out Of The Right Earphone


If its less than 1 year old, have it replaced. Its a loose connection on the circuit board. SanDisk Technical Support 1-866-726-3475 Best of Luck.

Headset jack


Ok often this is caused by one of the cables in the earphones breaking.. try another set. Sometimes it can be the socket on the unit breaking at the solder joint on the PCB, if it is, and ya can solder? it is a pretty easy fix. But I would "Punt" for a broken earphone lead.
