Um.. but sometimes this can just be caused by broken connections between the headphone jack and the circuit board, and can be fixed by a bit of soldering? Right?

That is a common problem with Mp3 players - unfortunately, no one that I know of yet has been successful in repairing this issue, b/c the manufacturers do not sell the component parts. I'm afraid this Mp3 player will have to be replaced, even though only the headphone jack and associated circuit are bad.

How do I fix busted speakers on headphones?

Hi Anonymous.

The short answer is that outside of pretty high end headphones, you're not likely to be able to repair them. There may be a small crossover circuit to drive more than one small speaker, but most headsets will only have one speaker per ear. If you're only getting the beat, the speaker membrane or solid state equivalent is probably blown, and the bass you're hearing is the edges of the diaphragm flapping around. These assemblies are soldered or crimped for electrical connections, very fine wires inside the pads, and unlikely to have parts available even if you have mad DIY electronics chops.

That said, make sure you're diagnosing what's wrong. Plug your MP3 player into another set of headphones and confirm that the sound is fine with that set. That isolates the problem to the headphones, instead of some crazy equalizer setting.

After that, if they're under warranty, you might try to get the manufacturer to replace them, but otherwise it's rare to be able to repair headphones at all, or to do so for less than what a new pair would cost if parts were actually available.

I would like to listen to my saddisk with out using my hear plugs

The Sansa does not have any speakers. You need to have something produce sound. If you don't want to use headphones/ear plugs, you can plug some speakers into the headphone jack.

Problems with my sandisk sansa mp3

Do any of the songs play? It may be that the song(s) are corrupted. If this is the case, delete the songs and try to download them from somewhere else or, if you uploaded from a cd put them on again and see if they work. It also might be the jack that these speakers are plugged into. Sometimes the port for the speaker plug is made incorrectly, and the plug is too loose inside to actually connect, but tight enough to stay in. If it's a base cradle, does it work? Are you missing any batteries( if battery powered), or is the plug in the outlet right? Is the player connected properly? Is it actually FOR the player, or is it only for a certain type of player that you don't have? It by 'speaker' you mean headphones, the wires might be disconnected in some places. If that's the case, buy some $0.98 headphones from walmart and attempt it with those. Are the volume bars on the player and the speakers high enough up?

Sound is warped

Likely what happened is, in your efforts to get the piece out of there, you loosened a solder point on the headphone jack, and it will need to be resoldered. If you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself, you can send it to a technician who can.

Music loud, voice low-pitched

Found your question due to having the exact problem you described. New firmware, format... loaded new music, same problem. While switching to yet another set of headphones the sound got better momentarily. The case doesn't appear loose, but squeeze right next to the lcd and lyra name and the audio was fixed. For some reason the audio was mechanical sounding and the voice was almost non-existant unless pressure was placed on the player where described. I tightened the screw in the retaining strap hole and the one under the USB connector flap and all is well for now. Good Luck!!!!
