Hold in the power on button for 5 seconds - this should reset the player. Then try turning it on again.

If that fails:
These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

I have MiTone mitmp32 , bought week ago in duty free shop in Netherlands. The problem is, when i try to change the album or artist in the main music menu, it always gets back to a specific song(album) that...


I have the same problem and it irritates me like crazy. A weird thing that seems to work is when you want to switch off your mp3 player, put it on pause and let it switch itself off automatically. When you next switch it on, it will be on that same song and not some random one you listened to ages ago. Seems to work for me. Do you have any idea how to play music on shuffle by the way?

I synced it added music but when i unpluggd it all my music was gone


Press the MODE button to enter "Music Mode". Press the MODE button again and highlight "Local Folder". Keep pressing the MODE button until you reach the album titles and then press the PREVIOUS button and then press the MODE button again. This will bring you to the root directory of your music files. Remember that if you pause too long before pressing the MODE button, it will return you to the first song that appeared when you first entered "Music Mode" and you will have to start over. Once you get to the route directory, press the NEXT or PREVIOUS buttons until you highlight the artist you want to listen to. Press the MODE button again and repeat the last method to select the album and song you want to listen to. Good Luck!!! This is not a user friendly device and even with the instruction manual it took me a while to figure out. I hope this helps.

My sansa clip won't play the songs I loaded on!


I've had this happen a couple of times in the last 6 months. You can get it to play again by chosing the format option from the settings menu. Of course, then you've lost everything you had loaded on to it. Download your music/audio books again and they will play.

I have the same model - you have to press and hold the Play/Pause button (the button to the left of the 4-way button) until the unit turns on.

It took me awhile to figure it out.

Good luck!

The radio on my Coby 610 turns off after 3 minutes of play


I don't think I am actually solving this, but I think I may have a reason why it is happening. I am having the same problem with the radio turning off after about three minutes (I, too, had to reinstall the firmware).
I think the system sees the player as "inactive" when in radio mode and shuts down after a few minutes of "inactivity" -- even though you are, in reality, listening to the radio. The exact same thing happens when you pause an MP3 you are listening to; the system will see the player as inactive (because the music is paused) and shut down after a few minutes.
Maybe there isn't anything in the system (firmware?) that can differentiate the inactivity of just listening to music coming in through an antenna and the inactivity of paused digital music?
Feel free to send this to Coby tech support and see what comes back.

Hold the menu button (the m button, in the middle), then it will go to the main menu.
Then click on the music button with the "m" but dont hold it then click the play button and then click the volume button wile the sign next to the bar that tells you how long the song is and how long it takes to get done. check the volume if you have it on pause or stop it will go strait to the record button. try it and if it dont work then srry.
