Help on Clip + headphone jack output issue
Hi There;

I'm sure there must be a thread somewhere here, but it appears my Clip+ has developed an intermitant headphone jack issues.

Ideas or can you point me to a thread on this??

I HATE having to replace my Clip+ as been a killer player

Did you try using the Search function on this board? I came up with several threads that are relevant and could be of help.

There's a chance it's this problem http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum...d.php?p=505524. I messed up one of mine by using a 1/4" to 1/8" adapter that came out to a length of about 3 inches. Having a lever that long in there caused problems after about 3 days.

I did just about the same thing Adub did. Popped it open, reflowed the solder and reenforced the area with a little hot melt glue. That was quite a while ago and I haven't had any problems since.

Thanks skip, I may try the paper thing on the thread, I didn't know the Clip+ could be opened

I used the pics here http://anythingbutipod.com/2009/08/s...s-disassembly/ to get it open without breaking of the clips that hold it together. If you check around you can probably find some clearer than those.

I don't know how long putting a piece of paper is going to last. I soldered mine because I wanted the repair to be permanent. Soldering isn't very difficult to pick up and the tools are dead cheap. Once you get the basics you'll find yourself thinking about other projects that can save you a ton of cash. I hate to think about all the things I tossed or gave away that $30 worth of tools and a $1 worth of solder could have saved.

Enough of that, I don't want to seem to be pushing you into something you wouldn't be comfortable doing. However you decide to go about it, here's hoping it works and you get your Clip+ back in good working order.:)

I may get a friend of mine to do that as I haven't soldered in YEARS and don't trust myself, thanks again

Also, do note that your player has a 1 year warranty (2 in the EU); SanDisk will replace the player if you're within the warranty period. http://www.sandisk.com/about-sandisk/contact-us/

Happened to me aswell. Had to RMA it and they fixed it. However now i had to RMA it again because of a faulty battery which only has 1 hour at most at full charge.
