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?

Which radio stations are best to listen to your mp3 in the car?


That depends on where you are, and what frequencies the stations in your area are using. That's why you have so many choices. If you drive a couple of hundred miles away, you may find that you need to change stations.

The sales person said i could receive fm radio on this mp3 player


When it's booted up use the +/- buttons to navigate to radio, press play/pause to enter the radio tuner, it's default station is 88.something , use the |<< and the >>| buttons to navigate stations, hold the player around in the air to fin good reception, look around in the radio menu and you can record songs/talk shows off the radio, be careful, if you're recording and you hear static, it will record the static. good luck!

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.

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.
