Hi, My sansa e250 2gb was working fine until recently i can hear audio only from my right earbuds and not the left. I thought the earbuds were faulty, so i hooked up another one and again the same problem. I donot know how or why it happened. If I put the 3.5 mm plug only half way in into the output of the mp3 player i can hear it in both sides but not without interference. It is very unnerving to hear music only in one ear. Thanks

Re: Sound on only one side
This is a hardware problem that happens every so often on mp3 players regardless of manufacturer. Unfortunately, the whole player will have to be replaced, b/c there is no repair svc, and no headphone jack components for sale.

1) either the earbud plug has a loose connection, or
2) a soldier joint in the player itself is cracked.
Have you tried different earbuds? If that fixes the problem, then yea!
If new earbuds don't fix the problem, the it's likely a cracked soldier joint. Cracked joints are easy to repair, IF you have the right soldiering iron and are a careful working who enjoys learning new skills.
YOU HAVE A STEREO JACK, LOOKING AT THE EAR JACK THERE ARE 2 COLORED CIRCLES AROUND THE STEEL EAR JACK WHICH DESIGNATE STEREO, ONE COLORED CIRCLE IS MONO-ONE SIDE, IF YOU HAVE TRIED SEVERAL DIFFERENT SETS THEN YOUR EAR JACK IS NOT MAKING A GOOD CONNECTION TO YOUR STEREO EAR JACK AND ONLY GIVING YOU SOUND TO ONE SIDE(MONO), AND MIGHT NEED REPAIRED
That has happened to me before, what happened was where you input the earphone jack was broken, no matter how many different headphones i tried none worked. Now I understand this doesn't help, but it might save a lot of time. Although one short short term thing i did find out though, is that if you push the headphone jack to the side, sometimes you will receive a little sound.
