Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Custom eq problem

When set to the custom eq, one side of the audio drops out every 3 or 4 songs. Turning it off/on again fixes it for just a few songs. Also, switching to a different eq setting (rock for example) and then immediately back to custom eq fixes it for a few more songs. Firmware is the latest version and all songs came from my CD collection. I have taken 2 e270 units back to Best Buy with this problem. Upgraded to the e280, same problem. Please see if you guys can recreate my issue on your units. thanks DenverTom

How do i adjust the EQ on the Eclipse 180G2

These answers are not even related to the problem. He wants to customize the equalizer, which is *clearly* an option. However, our Eclipse 180g2 players are not allowing us to switch bands, so we can only adjust the first bar of our equalizer.

How do we switch bands and fully adjust the equalizer?

Unable to download files from apple itunes

ITunes does not support this player. To put music on the player you must copy the files from the folders where the music files are on your computer to the device mounted on your computer.

Sound Problem

Sounds like something's up with your EQ. From the main menu, go to Music>Music Options>Music EQ and try another setting or play around with Custom. Could also be volume. Go to main menu>Settings>Reset All (NOT FORMAT!!!) Recommend trying both in given order. Hope this helps.

Zen V Plus is locked up, won't shut off

EQ is something you can set up to make the sound of your songs better..well, sounding. It can add a base boost, vocals clearer to hear, etc. It won't effect your player or music. You set that on yourself. Ex: I have EQ by my battery sign b/c I set the EQ on "New Age" in the System. (You can take it off by going into system, and going to audio settings.)

I just recommend that you should try letting the battery run out, and it will most likely reset itself. My player did that too, and I totally freaked out. I thought that it was broken, but I hooked it up and it just needed to be docked.

Music EQ

Upgrading the firmware also has the same effect - Sansa never has and never will resolve this issue - sorry.

If your songs are coming from more than one source, or you are using a pure file sharing program like Limewire, Morpheus, Frostwire, etc., every mp3 is recorded at different levels. You will have to become a bit of an audio editing expert to do this, but you will need to get audio editing software, and set the elvels, bit rate, etc of all of the songs to exactly the same level - or else, you will get variable play quality on your custom EQ settings. WARNING: This is going to take a LONG time.

Creative Zen Nano plus -512 MB

well it shouldnt play the first song in the folder. it should automatically play the song where you left off. and when you are changing the EQ, make sure that you are pressing in the selector key. (the key at the bottom to the right of the volume control keys) as it may take a while to adjust to your volume settings

can you still switch the MP3 player on? if so... 1)Switch the MP3 player on and go to 'SETTINGS' 2)Try to restore the factory settings. This will NOT make the songs disappear from your MP3 player, but will reset the Custom EQ settings if you used them. I hope this helps.
