    Thanks for the info but the screen remains blank.

  • Reavan20 Feb 27, 2009

    I have the same problem. Actually first my screen when white and I could not see anything but it would light up. Then the next day it went completely black. I tried to turn it on it would not. I had to format it. then I heard the sounds from the mp3 player, however, the screen is still black and will not light up? So... what do I do about the situation I tried calling the customer service line but they are not answering calls. So is this investment lost money or can I fix it? And how if I can fix it?

You can try the following :
1. First kepp the player on plane surface like table etc.
2. Push Menu and middle button simultaneously and kepp them pushed for 6 seconds.
3. It will turn on, otherwise you have to format it.

Mac reformatted


MP3 players expect an MS-DOS (or FAT) format.

They do not read Mac formatted memory.

Reformat the MP3 player to MS-DOS format (your files will be deleted, so back them up if necessary) and the player should read the memory once more.

The mp3 player is frozen once it turns on. Keeps on saying refreshing your media.


Press and hold the power button. Hold it long enough (10 to 15 seconds ) it will eventually turn the frozen player off. Press the power button again to turn it back on. You can try formatting the player again either through windows media player or (if a v2 model) through the player's own menu system. Failing that, put the player in MSC mode and format it from Windows Explorer. I would also update the firmware. I have attached the link to the Sansa site to find the firmware and further instructions.
Thanks for using FixYa.

C200 1 gb won't work.


When you plugged it into Windows, it was formatted as a a FAT32. when your friend plugged it into his Mac, it was reformatted as a non-FAT32. You will have to reformat your player, which will end up erasing all of your songs:
WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 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 "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

I need to upload my music from a mac osx on to mp3 player imp-65


Both of you need to reformat your players, but the method is different for the Mac, than it is for the Windows-based machine. For windows:

There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 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.

Why is my mp3


This player is not Mac compatible - plugging it into the Mac caused a reformatting to take place. Upgrade the firmware and see if you have better luck, but this player might eb toast.

Player frozen..


You need to do two things - the first tactic will force the computer to recognize the GoGear - the second will fix the device:

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.

After this is done, open the Philips Device Manager that came with the install CD, and run a "Repair" - the instructions will be remarkably similar to what we did before.

The do a "update" in the Philips Device Manager to be on the safe side.

Deleting music from Sansa Clip MP3 player


You can reformat the player in Windows Media Player - this will erase all songs (or you can delete the songs one by one in Windows Media Player). Microsoft's website has click-by-click instructions on how to do this - complete with illustrations. Just enter "Windows Media Player" as your search term - it will take you to the Windows Media Player help files.

MP3 Frozen


go to memorexelectronics.com and then to support. You need to upload the current firmware for model MMP8565.. I downloaded the firmware program and followed the instructions, it fixed all the problems I was having with the mp3 player. Make sure you follow the instructions carefully, it may get a little tricky if you are not somewhat computer literate.
