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.

There can be lots of things in the whole audio chain that can be wrong, but I limit to things you could try and test yourself.
You could switch the sound switch, where it says Hi-Fi Sound several times, up and down and then check if on any setting you hear something. (lift the view finder up. I thought it was the switch to the front.
Then you could try to put in a headphone, and listen if you then hear any sound. If the switch behind the plug is oxidised the sound is gone too. If you hear sound in the headphone you know almost every thing is working. when you unplug the phone and you again hear nothing, plug and unplug several times. Difficult to clean it yourself, because you could cause the oxide or other debris comes in the camera.
Then you have a video / audio output switch right side to the front, try switching that one too, several times. I hope you get the old baby working again.
just do the volume the equalization. Once the Bluetooth is on just click the volume (+) until you hear a beep then click volume (-) until you hear a beep, this should equalize your volume. and give you equal sound from both of you earbud.
you can make both of the earbuds work. You can open the earbud where the speaker is that you use to hear the musik. Use a soldering iron and a lead. check if the wire inside has removed, fix it back and you will hear sound on both earbuds.
It is likely that your right stereo channel has either been severed somehow or there is a severe short in one of the cables. What you can try to do to test this theory is first turn on your music. Then wiggle the cable at the very base of the right earbud. If nothing happens wiggle the cord right where it connects to the stereo jack. If still nothing happens run your fingers along the right earbud audio cable bending and twisting it. If at any point you hear music again then you likely have a short. If it is near the earbud then it is going to be difficult to fix since these earbudfs have a large gauard. If the short is at the stereo jack then the fix is simple. A standard 1/8" stereo jack can be purchased from any electronics or audio store. You can then fairly easily seperate teh old stereo jack and solder this new one in place. Search the internet for tutorials on how to do this if need be. Even if you do not get any kind of sound when wiggling it at the base of the jack this is the most likely culprit since this is where most of the stress on the headphones occur. Be wary though, if you do attempt a stereo jack repair you will void whatever kind of warranty your earbuds may have so check before you try. But, in teh end you may end up saving a 60-100 dollar set of earbuds for 5-8 dollars. Hope this helped.
