My e260 is turning off unexpectedly when in use. It appears to be a problem with the earphones. When I turn the earphone plug inside the player jack, I get static and the unit turns off. I cannot turn the unit on again unless I unplug the earphones. Anyone else have this problem? Is it a short of some type? Thanks in advance for your input.

Not that I've heard of, and I've been around here for a lttle while.
Certainly sounds like it. Unfortunately, it's doubtful that you can fix it (unless you're familiar with electronics, tiny wires and soldering irons, or know somoeone who is). Much as I'm sure you hate to say good-bye to a trusty old friend like the e260, I think that's what you're going to have to do.

Thanks. I confirmed the problem with 2 sets of earphones. This machine is a beast. I've used it running in all kinds of weather for 4+ years to the point where the screws can't even be removed because of the corrosion (which may be part of the issue). It still works-just have to be careful with the plug.
