Question about Sylvania SMPK8858 MP3 Player

1 Answer

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 tighten up the jack?

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 :-)

My left head phone isn't playing music anymore, what should I do?


Usually the problem is a cut at one of the copper cables. Try moving the cables at bothe ends (jack and earphone end) to locate the end that has the problem. In case it's the jack's side, you can easily change this end with another jack (complete jack and part of the cable from another headphones) by connecting the cables. The best solution is to change the jack with another one and solder the cables but since these cables are very thin, it isn't so easy. In case the problem is at the earphone side, you have to open the earphone and reconnect it at the cable again removing the part of the cable that is cut, but since the cables are too thin isn't so easy.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

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.

Is it possible to replace headphone jack on laptop?


try a new set of headphones and if the issue still persist, the contact point inside the earphone port might be damaged which will lead to motherboard replacement since the earphone port is integrated with the mobo.

Left side of stereo earphone does not work.


In side of your left wire there are two tiny coper wires (either blue/green/Red and gold) one of which is easily cut off.
Peel off the wire cover (Dont cut it off) near the earphone head (normally not more than an inch) to findout where one of the colored wire is cut off and fix it.
Note: Before you could join or fix this broken one firstly you need to burn up the color coded wire with fire for a SECOND so that all the color (green/Red...) are cleaned up.

If this dont fix Please tell me. Im here to help you

Good Luck!

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.

Earphones stop working


I had this very problem. The Sansa worked great for over 1 year, but then I started getting some dropping out of sound on the left side. Today I went to an electronic shop and they opened up the unit. There was a small crack in the solder of the earphone jack on one side. So the electrician just used a fine point solder and fixed that, then strengthened the other solder points of the jack to make sure it won't happen again... I hooked in the earphones....and it is PERFECT again!!!! So, don't lose hope...just take it in to a decent electronics shop and they will most likely be able to fix your problem. And he only took around US$10 for the job. Beats buying a new player...
