Connect Stereo Balance Problem

When I use 'phones and insert the plug fully I get one side very clearly and the other side is very soft. If I mess with the and get a pertial insert, I get enven balance. I have tried blowing it out wht canned air. This happens with al my earphones and earibuds

You probably have a bad earphone jack :frowning: though one thing that seems to be a general disclaimer for earphone jacks on most/all Sansas is that they’re very tight … are you sure you have the plug pushed in all the way?  I was fooled by this with a Sansa Fuze I bought recently.  The jack is REALLY tight.

 Thanks

About as sure as can be without having tried with my full strength and it had been fine before and is fine with a partial insert. on the way to the full insert the uncooperative side does give a brief stakic-y sound.
