Reset the player first.


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 the Sandisk website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out.
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.

When I put earplugs into the computer to listen to something they do not work. I can not hear through the earplugs. I still hear through the speakers of the computer.


If you have the ear plugs connected to correct output they should work unless the earplugs are no good. Try with another computer to see if they work and draw your conclusions.

Right earplug is shorted out. sound goes in and out. how do i fix it?


The right ear plug internal wire is cut off due to wear and tear. This is common problem with earplug especially if
if you pull by the wire of your earplugs. The solution is to
cut open the wirings of your right earplug and reconnect,
resolder it, and tape the bare wires, to restore the sound. However, it will be unsighty. So, the best thing
to do is to buy another.

I cant hear from my earplugs ....


Helllo,
There is probably a problem from your ear plugs if it works on the system. Probably the cord is cut or the connection in the earplugs is bad. would recommend getting a new one.

cheers

Headphones are only working in one ear.


This is a common problem. All stereo adapters will only play in the right ear. What you should do is send back the headset adapter and get a stereo headset that plugs directly into the 2.5mm jack, without going through an adapter. That should solve the problem.

I beleive that recorder is mono. You have to use an adapter for stereo headsets or listen on one side of the head set.
