Re: My MP# is stuck in recording mode

There is a reset button accessible by a paper clip through a small hole on the top of the player. This will reset your player (this is an extremely useful button!). You will not lose any data/tracks but you will have to reset the time/date when you turn your player back on.

To perform a hard reset, press and hold the Select button while pressing the Volume Up (+) button.

My mp3 player is stuck at the voice record screen

Reset it first by holding in the power button for 10-15 seconds. If that fails:
Connect the device to the PC in MSC Mode
View/c200: Turn on then press and hold the rewind button while plugging to the PC

Hey EMURK72,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, you should be able to enable voice recording by following the steps below:

1) Press the menu button ("M") twice to enter the main menu.

2) Press the "+" or "-" button to highlight "Voice Recording," then press the next track button to advance.

3) Press the "+" or "-" button to highlight "Record," then press the next track button to enter voice recording mode.

4) If you press the "●" button when the display screen says "Ready," you should then be able to start voice recording.

5) You can press the "Play/Pause" button to pause and resume recording.

6) Pressing the "●" button a second time stops recording.

If you'd like more information or step-by-step instructions that include visual aides, you may wish to refer to your owner's manual.

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

I need 2 know how 2 uninstall info from my mp-4001 moV.ox centon

Do this procedure for "voice" mode to delete voice recordings:

Delete file (stop submenu) - Delete corresponding files and save files in Music mode, Voice mode or FM mode.
1. In stop interface (FM without stop interface)
2. Short press "MODE" to enter stop submenu
3. Click "NEXT" or "PREV" to choose "single" or "all" files
4. Short press "MODE" to enter the Delete interface
5. Click "NEXT" to change "no" into "yes"
6. Short press MODE to confirm the delete prompt
"Delete all" will delete all related files stored in the selected folder. For example, if in music mode "Delete all" will delete all the music files, while other recorded files (e.g. voice recordings or FM recordings) will not be deleted.
Likewise, if "Delete all" is used when in the "Replay" menu, this will delete all recorded files but leave music files intact.
FM is much simpler – "Delete" or "Delete all" will delete the station(s) saved before.

Web link with the manual is

If your lazy he's the cut and paste from the manual;

1. To start voice recording, press M twice to access the Home menu.
2. Press or to highlight “Voice Recording". Then press to advance. (thats the key you would press to skip ahead a song)
3. Press or to highlight “Record”. Then press to access voice recording
4. Press when the display shows “Ready” to start voice recording.
5. Press to pause record. Press again to resume recording.

I had a hard time myself with this fuction so don't feel alone. I used the voice record to record a lecture and it was surprising sensitive but then again I had the professer put it in is front shirt pocket. It would over modulate a bit but was audioable and served its fuction for me

Sansa e250 screen is stuck on refresh database

Press the "lock" button to where the Orange is showing. Then press the record button on the left side of the MP3 for a bit. Try this several times. I did it twice and it worked! M.P.
