Default Replacing Jack-in

My jack-in broke a long time ago, and I've been using strings to make it work. (it works when you push it to the side :P)

Recently I bought a Cowon S9, happy etc. Since my friend is customizing my e200's backplate I want to bring it back to life.

So I've been looking on the interwebs looking for a female jack.

I found this: http://www.allekabels.nl/Jack-Stekke...ack-3.5mm.html (Its a Dutch site, but I'm Dutch too so it doesnt matter :P)
I was wondering if it would work/fit.

Any experiences on jack replacements?

Looks like we both have the same problem ... I'll keep in touch if I find anything else. Iv'e had mine for a couple years now and only yesterday decided to see if I can try and MAKE a Jack for the sansa ... of course just until I get a working jack to solider. But I am half successful ... I used a thin piece of metal from those twist ties they put on bags of bread, and some aluminum foil ... the foil works great. and now I just have to find a way to get the the headphone's jack to stay in place ... maybe you could try using some foil to replace the disconnected/broken connector from your jack-in.

I was actually going to ditch trying to use the same type of jack-in for the sansa, since I noticed that they break way to easily and there's no guaranty that it will be the exact size you want it. So i was going with this idea ...

This is for a C200 but the same method will work for an E200. It should prevent from ever again having to replace the connector since this time the Jack is out, and of course if glued, soldered and placed correctly the wires inside should never break.

Hope it helps

I had an issue with my headphone jack also. I opened up the Sansa e280 and re-soldered the connections. I had to do it a couple times, but there was finally a good connection and it has been working great for the last year. Did you try to solder it yourself or is it beyond repair?

Good luck.

Well my actual Jack-in was split in half, so resoldering wouldn't work. The part from the guide from sonicjr01's link has been shipped, so I'll wait till it gets here.

One question though, using that guide, I have to solder some wires from a jack-in plug to the board, but I don't know which wires should be soldered where.
How will I know which belongs where?
Thanks in advance.

I guess you’re asking about the contacts? They’re on the back of the PC board, from top to bottom, common, right, & left. BTW you can not find the headphone jack anywhere or on line, the best solution is to buy a broken player and salvage parts from it, there’s normally some on ebay. If you decided to go another route, here’s two links will help …
