my bro has a SanDisk Sansa C250 and when you put the headphones in it, the slightest bump will disturb the connection causing the sound to fade and or abruptly stop in the headphones. it switches quickly from side to side.

my theory is that the little tabs inside the female end of the headphone jack are weak and dont push down against the male end of the headphones hard enough and cause a bad connection. ive put a small piece of paper on one side of the jack to force the male end to the side so it can make a better connection. it helps a little but its still not as reliable as i would like and it makes taking the headphones out and putting them back in an annoying task.

is there anyway i can fix this some other way?
