Fuji M3360SL512MB MP3 bad fm reception

The fm radio function was working great. Then I lost one ear phone side, then the other. So I bought replacement head phones, now the fm has bad reception. Is the antennea in the original headphones? If so, can I buy original replacement parts?

I think the antenna is in the phone wiring...but try this as a test: purchase a "Y" headphone splitter and plug that into the player then pug each set of headphones in...any improvement? if so, the phones you purchased do work but not same wiring configuration as original.

When i put on the ear phones there is no sound only a little background static. have tried to replace ear phones twice but still have same problem

if you have already tried different ear phones and if it didn't work then for sure the issue is with the device.I hope those ear phones you tried are working in other audio devices.just try to connect it to a external speaker like computer speakers to see the fault is really with the device and not the ear phones
before assming it as an hardware issue just try to back up whatever you have in the device format the device upgrade the firmware of the device you can do it by clicking here..try hearing the FM radio before going to songs from the computer if the FM radio works fine then try some MP3 format songs you stored in the device from computer..if still you have the same issue.. take it to the sansa repair service center with the bill so that they can help you out..
hope this was helpfull

My player doesn't pick up an fm signal. other functions work well. I have tried removing the battery to reset. No change. Thanks

umm theres a built in antenna in every device that is supposed to pick up am or fm frequencies..either its just bad reception from where you are trying to get the radio from, or the internal intenna is broken...if it is you can replace the intenna by buying that part seperately. if you have a warranty on the device you can replace the whole thing for free.

Reception on fm is not very good

Unfortunately there are only two real ways the reception could be "bad".

Either your MP3 player is a lemon itself (meaning a single defective product, in which case you can return it, if you bought it recently!)....OR, the more likely answer is that MP3 players with FM tuners generally don't have great reception.

I have run into one MP3 player that has pretty good reception, and that is the Zune. It lets you set presets and such as well. Hope that helps!

No sound from FM player; all other functions appear okay

The FM radio on that player is unusually weak. You will probably only be able to get reception outside. It is not actually a volume issue - that player just has weak reception and is very sensitive to interference.

FM RADIO Reception

No, it should work, although it will depend on how good your reception is. This depends on how strong the signal is where you are trying to receive. If you have tried scanning for channels and all you receive is static, it's possible your tuner is bad. Have you tried to tune it to a known good station manusally?

How do I turn on the FM radio?

The headphones are the antenna, you may have to walk around to get better reception. I've never found the radio reception to be great on t. A full manual is available for this product on Sandisk's website.

SL100 static and bad FM reception

I have noticed various changes in my invehicle FM reception as well. There should be a external antenna that came with your car kit. This is precisely for these types of issues. It is designed to run along the windshield inside the car closest to the Cars radio antenna. It should plugin to the bottom of the cradle. Then tune it into a clean FM station (one that has no local station on it) and position the cradle and/or ext. antenna till you get the best reception in your vehicle. It could very well be that the antenna has come has loose on your car stereo backplane. You would probably notice decreased reception on regular AM/FM stations as well though.
Your wifi reception/functionality is a completely different animal and has no bearing on the FM transmitter in the car cradle. When your on wifi your not receiving signal from a sat. anymore just simply streaming internet audio like your computer.
Good luck.
