Question about SanDisk Sansa m240 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Worst trip ever!

I got mine for Christmas, and it worked fine for about two weeks. I was getting ready to go on an eight hour trip, and I thought, 'Cool, I can actually plug this into my car and actually have some music.' I got to the gas station and saw that the screen was frozen. Basically I went on an eight hour trip with no music. I thought I was going to go crazy. I still didn't have any time to check on the internet to see what was wrong with it when I got back, and I've been exercising with a loud radio and driving my neighbors crazy. I just hope that Sansa will give me a new one that won't have the same problem, Santa Clause paid good money for this one and waited in line for hours to get it. There are no receipts...and yeah, I really DO wish that they had sent recalls on it, so I could've avoided the last month.

I have two christmas cactuses. One blossoms the other does not. WHY?

How does a Christmas cactus know when to bloom?
Care of Christmas Cactus in Bloom. Christmas cactus plants should continue receiving dark, cool treatment for at least 6-8 weeks, or until buds begin forming. Once buds have formed, it usually takes up to 12 weeks (or less) for blooms to appear. The plant should also be relocated at this time.29 Jan 2015

My Sunbeam RN17280 dual control heating blanket does not get as warm as it did, after only 2-3 years. Is this a common problem and is there anything that can be done? Both sides are affected the same, and...

I got mine for Christmas (2010)... Worked fine the first week or two... Then I noticed that it doesn't get hot at all anymore... Thought maybe my husbands side controlled both (like a master safety)... Since he sets it at 3... Mine is set on 'high'... But no, put his on high, it gets super hot, my side barely warm.

No heat, air blender might need to be replaced.

If your climate panel works fine, but the air just isn't warm, it's probably the thermostat. I'm not as sure on the 1.8T engine, but I can guarantee you that a stuck thermostat is very common on the 2.8L V6 engine. I changed mine three weeks ago, and have done seven or eight of them in the past. It's very labor-intensive (the front of the car has to come off), so you may as well do the timing belt as well. I'd bet a shop will get you for 5-6 hours' labor. If you're in or near upstate NY, I can do it. If not, find an independent shop that specializes in European cars. Use a dealer as last resort only, as they'll get you for $100-120 per hour.

My Nomad Jukebox Zen Xtra (Vers. 2.02.26) gets stuck in the boot mode intermittently. Do you think I should replace my HDD before it gets stuck in boot mode permanently? Thanks for your help. Bernard Dupre

I've had this trouble with mine. I keep it in my vehicle. Seems to be worst when there are temperature swings or high humidity, so I thought maybe it was condensation inside. Set the Zen on my woodstove for a few hours. This got mine working again. If you do plan on changing hard drive, I would pick one up soon. They use 2.5" IDE drives, which are getting harder to find.

My fridge won't cool down or freeze

Your condenser is likely dirty clean it. the compressor could be tripped out on over load (to hot) unplug the fridge a couple hours should do it . plug it back in make sure the thermostat is on and set correctly if that does not work you will need service. Tom

1999 Chrysler 300M overheating

I am having the same prob. on 04 300m 83,000 mi. I am a chrysler tech and another tech at my shop had the same problem a week ago. Mine started when i Was on the thruway my guage crept up to 3/4 so i kicked the heat on and it went normal. After stopping I found the water pump went and was leaking bad. I replaced the waterpump timing belt and tensioner pulley. thought it was good untill on a long trip. Noticed temp goin up no leaks this time, coolant full. doesnt overheat with heater on. Actuated fans with DRB3 and both work and are working when car says its overheating. Replaced thermostat and bleed system. thought it was ok untill drove 35mi. suspecting bad wiring plugged radiator or coolant temp sensor. Still driving with heat on low to keep from overheating. any others fix this problem yet?
