Question about SanDisk Sansa m240 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Headphone jack The headphone jack in my sansa is broken. It randomly cuts out in the left ear, and then randomly un-cuts out. If I rotate the plug of the headphones, that will also sometimes fix it. I'm thinking about just replacing the sansa, but, I can't really afford that, so I was wondering if there is any way I can repair the one I already have?

I had the same problem on my e200 series after maybe 8 months of use. If you apply some pressure from the side of the plug, the sound should come back. Wiggle it even. If this is the case, there is a connection problem. If under a year old, RMA it with the company, I just got mine back from the same issue. I have also read that if not under warrenty, you can take aprt the player and apply a shim (piece of cardboard the thinkness of a matchbook cover) inside to fix. There are other posting on the web that describe this in detail from people who claim to have done this sucessfully. Cheers

One ear on bose qc 15 headphones doesnt work

Check your jack. A bad jack will cut-one ear. Try wiggling the wire going into your jack. You can buy the entire jack and plug.

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.

Your headphone jack connections have broken inside, cutting off the speaker and one side od the audio, left or right. The jack needs to be replaced or resoldered.

Sound only in right ear

Its either the jack or the connector in the device is the problem. You can try connecting other headphone, if this works, then the problem lies on the jack of the old headphone.

Hi, my sansa e250 has sound come out of only one head phone no matter how many headphones i try the same happens

The jack in the e250s is not made of adamantium, so it can actually go bad; however, if you try different headphones and thus determine that either:
  - All the headphones simultaneously went bad in one side
  - Your left ear has issues
  - The Sansa is only cranking out one channel; and
     -the jack feels a little off, or
     -perfectly good mp3s are being played off-balance; AND the balance has not been misconfigured in Settings.

...well then, the plot's moving forward and you can get your ear fixed, or stop the cat from killing your headphones, or re-load Sansa or Rockbox.org firmware, or fix the Settings, or see to the appropriate repair to the jack (depending on your warrantee status and skill with soldering irons and ordering off Jameco.com etc.)

One earphone works

i had the same exact problem with mine. Reading around it seems to be a common problem with the Sansa line. I opened mine up and found that one of the solder points that holds the ear phone jack to the main board had come loose. I soldered it back and it works like a charm. Pretty easy too. If you have a soldering iron, just open it up and resolder the solder point that has broken off. You can read instructions for disassembly here: http://www.anythingbutipod.com/archives/2006/11/sandisk-sansa-c200-disassembled.php When you have it apart, looking at it from the side, with the jack to the right, the broken point should be the rear (closest to the circuitry) point. You will see a very small, not sure what to call it, chip on the board you have to solder a connection to. here is a diagram: http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e321/fuzzygoat/sansa-c200-disassembley-8.jpg Hope this helps.
