My headphones are not the problem. I’ve plugged them into my laptop, into the desktop, into my phone - they work just perfectly.
Any headphones plugged them into my Clip + will not work, or I have to hold the bottom of the headphones funny, or hold the wires a weird way for both or one of them to work. I can actually wiggle around the headphone jack.
I’m thinking the only way to fix this is to send it in for repairs, or if that is too expensive, buy a new one.
Still. I would like to keep this one. It works just fine, except for the headphone jack problem.
It has not been dropped, cracked, stepped on, dropped in water, attacked by a wild dog, abducted by aliens, or taken over to the dark side of the force.
What should I do?
Sounds like a headphone jack mechanical issue. Are you still within the warranty period (1 year U.S., 2 years EU)? SanDisk is good about the warranty and warranty replacement.
In the U.S.: 1-866-SANDISK (726-3475). And other SanDisk contact information: http://www.sandisk.com/sandisk-support/contact-us
Sometimes people have been able to fix jack issues by smoothing out issues in the connection, such as by inserting a headphone jack repeatedly/twisting it, and the like.
I thought the warranty only lasted a month, but it’s good to know it’s good for a year. Yes, I’ve only had it for about 5 months, maybe.
My last Clip + lasted 13 months before it froze up, stopped working, and eventually just crashed. I have terrible luck with MP3 players. But I will happily contact Sansa, thank you so much.
