OK this seems to easy a fix for you, but try it.
* In the main menu where it lists your options (and where FM Radio would be) press the 'Menu' button on your Microphoto (bottom right button) and there is an option to 'Configure Menu' and in there should be the option to show FM Radio again. Hope that helps you.
I have a similar, but different problem, so ill list below, maybe it will help someone out.
i also replaced the (broken) 8gb microdrive with 8gb compact flash in my Zen Microphoto, which worked flawlessly! BTW i bought the A-Data 'SPEEDY CF 8GB' from newegg.com.
My FM Radio still shows up, but only gets MONO sound on the Right channel, its very frustrating. i took it all apart again and made sure no connections were loose or broken, but everything seems perfect. i believe it to be a firmware issue, i think ill try to roll back the drivers. im using firmware 1.31.01.
its just annoying to have to roll back to Media Player 10 everytime just to install the firmware and have windows properly communicate with the zen... :[

Offhand, can you pls try and do a reset. This model don't have a reset button, but you can try removing the batteries for say an hour or so. The idea is to reset the microprocessor if the problem is software/firmware. Preset/memory would be erased as well as any personalized settings if you do this. But the unit will be back to factory default.
If the reset doesn't work, then your particular version/model has a slight offset resulting to the "humming sound". This is a known problem and many in the "ham" world have written corrective procedures which would require an insulated tuning/alignment screwdriver or at the very least a jewellers screwdriver and doing a bit of alignment by "ear"
If you are adventurous to give this a try, pls post back. Otherwise your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified ham radio technician.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Replacing the firmware of your Coby 610 MP3 Player will unfreeze it and help it act normally again. This will also fix the 'File System Error' that has been popping up with some Coby 610 players. You can find it at the cobyusa.com website by choosing 'Mp3 & Portable', then 'Mp3 & Mp4 Players', then your model 'MP610', from the support page. Here is the Coby 610 Firmware Direct Link.
Unpacking the zipfile will give you a PDF file with instructions, and a program file to run.
Your music will be erased when you run this firmware update. The instructions suggest that even if your mp3 player won't startup properly, if you plug it into your computer you should be able to access it as a removable disk, and copy all your music to a temporary folder on your computer.
Here are the steps:
Plug your MP610 into your computer.
Copy all your music to a temporary folder.
Disconnect your MP610 from your computer.
Disconnect as many USB devices as possible from your computer (to simplify identifying the MP610 at a later step, and avoid damaging other devices by trying to load the MP610 firmware into them by mistake.)
Run the Firmware Update program 'MP610 T LCD Firmware Update for file sys err.exe'
You will see a screen with up to 24 numbered, empty boxes.
Connect the MP610 to your computer. It will show up in one of the boxes.
Once the MP3 player shows up, click on the Firmware Feature icon to start the firmware upgrade.
After the firmware update is complete, you will receive a checkmark in the firmware box.
Disconnect the MP610.
Close the firmware update software.
Turn on the 610 to confirm it starts up and the display reads 'COBY'.
Plug it back into your computer and copy your music back on to it.
normally the problem you are describing means that your antenna is bad. typically, if you have no am good fm bad antenna if you had good am and no fm the fm section of your radio would be bad.
you can test this but you will need an antenna (this can be purchased at most car parts stores for about $10.00) pull out the radio unplug the black round plug from the back of the radio and plug in the new one ( the antenna plug is a universal fit) you will probably need to ground the base of the antenna for the test then turn your radio I'm sure this will fix your problem but if not you can e-mail me at email@example.com
Reset the player once to make sure it isn't a temporary glitch - reset will NOT erase all of your songs.
Press the downward part of the circular ring when the word "music" is on your screen, and see if it will scroll doen to FM; if the word "music" does not appear, press the left side of the circular ring until the word "Music" appears on the screen
i figured it out with help from a delphi service rep.! you need to go into the menu and reset to factory default.this will erase everything you have changed from the factory settings,but once done you can reprogram your settings and they will stay. step 1-enter menu step 2-reset factory default settings step 3-reprogram your preset stations,FM freq. colors etc. step 4-use power button on the roady to turn it off.once the roady shuts down turn it back on with the power button. step 4-now you should be able to turn the key off without erasing your presets.
