Question about SanDisk SDMX1 MP3 Player
The problem with my sandisk sdmx1 is that i can only hear the music through the headphones when i hold them at a certain spot or an angle and ive already gotten a couple of new headphones and its not the problem...I looked on this website and i saw someone who had the same problem and the solution was to weld a part back together but i need something more specific than that i already took it all apart but i don't know what to weld together with the paper clip!!!! What specific part do i need to weld??????????????????????? Someone please help!!
I hope I can help you since so much time has passed. This is a rather common problem with the SDMX1 and that is because the headphone jack was installed with too little solder. Here is what you do.
1. Dismantle the player by removing 3 screws ( 2 at one end and 1 at the other).
2.Carefully pry the end caps away.they should pop off.
3.lift the upper half of the case from the joystick end gently.
4.lift the entire circuitboard out. watch where the battery terminals are.
5.look at the headphone jack where it is installed on the smaller circuitboard.
6.on both left and right sides of the jack down on the circuitboard you will see 2 solder connections.
7.these are for the left and right channels.
8.if you look carefully (you might need a magnifying glass), you will probably see a very small break in the connection.
9.using a pointed soldering iron (no soldering gun here!), simply resolder BOTH connections using a very small amount to solder. This will most likely solve your problem.
10.put everything back together and it's as good as new. VERY EASY.
