Hey i have an rca th1702-a and the audio wont work unless ihold the headphone jack just right, and even then only through one earphone. i've tried different headphones, and it doesnt seem to be damaged....


The headphone has come un soldered and it is not making a contact with the motherboard .... I have this player. It did the same thing. I took it apart and found this to be the reason for mine not working. I do not have a soldering gun or else I would re solder it back to the motherboard. I would suggest asking if anyone you know would be willing to solder it back for you.

Plays only thru one speaker or one headphone one side just wont play


Sounds like your headphone jack is messed up you can get replacement parts and a repair guide for this at ifixit.com. the website is www.ifixit.com ... they do show you step by step the process of removing the faceplate and where all the screws are at on the ipod. I took mine apart to replace the hard drive ... It was very helpful. the replacement parts are more reasonable than you would think ... hope this helps

Sansa mp3 jack problems


Hi, have had loads of mp3 players and this has happenede quite frequently (im, sure you have tried it with different headphones, but if you havent do so) It happens when the headphone jacks, bends the metal contact in the socket, so you have to push in the headphone to on side to get stereo, so annoying! Have fixed this a couple of usb stick mp3 players before by taking them apart and cleaning the contacts with deoxit 5% (its a contact cleaner) then bending the contact back a little bit, sometimes its worked other times it hasn't, but I was only doing it on cheap £20 players
Your player is a nice 6gb player, and I really wouldnt reccomend taking it apart in any way, if you do you will end up voiding your warranty
If its still under manufactures warranty (between 1 and 2 years) and even if its not get in touch with sansa by email

make sure you describe the problem clearly, giving your model number, and any serial numbers/product numbers you see on your player, Hope this helps

Mp3 player repair


I just took mine apart using this: http://www.anythingbutipod.com/archives/2006/11/sandisk-sansa-c200-disassembled.php

If this doesn't work for yours, I suggest using the model name/# with "disassemble" or even "take apart" as search terms in Google.

One channel not working on my iRiver t10 mp3 player


Most common cause is that the solder connection that holds the headphone jack to the board is broken. Usually can be fixed by taking the player apart and re-soldering the connection. Takes some effort and a pencil type soldering iron.
The T10 headphone jack is underneath the main board and you have to undo a solder connection in order to remove the board to gain access to the headphone jack. It's a lot of work but it can be done.

Audio only plays from left headphone


The contacts inside the headphone jack are made of a springy metal there is one for the left and one for the right speakers. This happened to my Blackberry and I took it apart and got inside the jack block and re-sprung the contacts. It worked for me... I used a dental pick.

Ear phone jack


what a coincidence.  had the exact same problem today.  ur connection on the inside of the player between the circuit board and the headphone jack is probably broken.  I had to re-sauter mine.  just open it up and take a look

Headphone jack


I had to take mine apart and re-solder the headphone jack. It was amazingly easy, but if you don't do electronics repairs, I would suggest getting help. Everything is very tiny! This type of head phone jack is modular and soldered directly to the tiny internal circuit board. It is poorly anchored by the outside of the case where you plug into it, so most of the stress of pluggin and unplugging the headphones is put directly on the three tiny little solder joints. This causes one (or more) of them to break eventually. Mine lasted only about two months. And, I was carefull very gentle with it! This will cause one side or the other, or both speakers to lose their signal so that only one side works or worse, niether side works anymore. Consequently, I don't unplug mine anymore. If it breaks again, I may try to fix it. It only takes a few minutes. But, I'm hoping I don't ever get to that point.
