Thumbwheel/scrollwheel races uncontrollably can anyone help?
It is with great difficulty to select genre as the scrollwheel races without stopping. Once volume is set it will also race very high or very low. Sansa has no support for out of warrenty MP3 player. I love my e280 and willing to have it serviced, but no one will touch it. Help.
Does it only race around in volume and genre selection? If so you have a software problem and beyond suggesting that you update to the latest firmware I can't help with that. If it races all the time or all the time when it's been activated start by feeling it. Does it feel steady and fastened or loose? If it feels tight add a drop or 2 of (electronic) contact cleaner and lubricant. Still doesn't work? update the firmware. Still doesn't work? A pro will need to fix it. If it's feels lose- it probably is. the player's front and back covers have to come off and the thumbwheel has to be lined up and fastened- there are two tabs on the part that you actually touch that fit into recesses on the assembly that it sits on- this will normally not hold it on though. The black center button does that and it gets snapped into recesses on the board. You may need to take the board out of its carrier to attach it right- but only if it doesn't snap in on its own. Reassamble, and if you still have problems add 1 or 2 drops of (electronic) contact cleaner and lubricant. If it still doesn't update the firmware. if it still doesn't work a proffessional will have to fix it.

For the Sansa Fuze, the selection Shuffle Mode is correct, just like you told:
In Main Menu > Music > Submenu > Music Options > Shuffle Mode:
1. Select Shuffle.
2. Use thumbwheel to choose Shuffle on or Shuffle off.
(to play songs in random order, set Shuffle to ON).
3. Press Select to change the Shuffle mode.
Open Windows Media Player 11
Right-click a song on your computer that you want to change and select "Advanced Tag Editor"
Change the Genre
Now, you must delete the version of your song off your GoGear (the ones without the genre), and then resync the newly-edited song using Windows Media Player.
It is slow and painful, but you cannot make these edits once the song is already loaded onto the GoGear. Also, you cannot simply sync the newly-edited songs onto the GoGear once you are finished with the edits, without first deleting the song off the GoGear, because the GoGear would otherwise think, "Hey, this song is already on here, I'm going to ignore you now!"
Are you creating playlists with Musicmatch or are you creating them directly on the DJ?
Let's say you have a playlist on your DJ and want to add a track to it. First, play the playlist. While it is playing, go to Music Library, find the track you want to add, select it with the thumbwheel, one of your choices in the menu that comes up is "Add to Selected". Select "Add to Selected". Now when the DJ reverts back to the screen showing the track being played. Hit the thumbwheel twice. A menu comes up. Select "Save as Playlist". Name it. Then delete your previous version of the playlist. Your new version will include the track (or tracks) you added.
Okay, that answered your specific question, but let me tell you it is much easier to build and organize, and yes, edit and/or add to your playlists from musicmatch.
After loading musicmatch, up near the top is a button called playlists. On its menu, select Playlist Manager. The window that opens has buttons that will let you create new playlists or modify old ones. You can dock your dj and edit the playlists on it from here or build playlists and then Send them to Portable Device (your DJ) Fairly easy.
O.K. this was a tough one. I started here. Without asking for help in the sansa forum I reviewed the entire user manual. This manual (as you may already know) does not contain the words "mute" or "unmute". So I will refer you to the forum sansa has set up for users.
retrevo is a great source for manuals, reviews and support for all electronics. I would go to the support group sansa has and ask there. If no unmute is found, this solution will surely unmute your player. However if you do resort to this your player will be reset to factory settings. This will not affect memory, but all your system settings will be reset. That means any customized wallpaper settings, art displayed in lists, backlight, power saver, language, date and time, brightness and volume settings will be restored to their original status! Memory content will not be affected! Only formatting the memory drive will delete memory content. So...
This will restore the player to its original factory settings.
1. Press Home button to return to the Main Menu.
2. Select Settings.
3. Scroll down to System Settings and select it. 4. Scroll down to Reset Factory Settings and select it.
5. Use thumbwheel to highlight Yes then press the Select button.
I didn't realize the sansa clip supported pictures - are sure you posted in the right section?

You have to scroll down the music/artist/genre you want and instead of clicking the one you think ( which is the play button ) click the button with a big "M" on it to play the artist's song. I hope I helped! =D
If your using Windows XP right click on the MP3 and select properties. Then click on the Summary tab and select Advance. From here you will see a list of labels for your MP3 such as artist, title, year. album, genre and etc... When you edit it from here it should show on your Sansa.
I hope this helps :-D!
The revolutionary "Clickwheel", introduced with the now discontinued iPod mini and also used on all subsequent iPod models (except the iPod shuffle), places pressure sensitive navigation buttons underneath the scroll wheel. The "Thumbwheel", introduced with the original iPod and used on the second and third generation models as well, is designed for one handed selection of song tracks and other information, but navigational buttons (play/pause, previous, next, menu, and select) are each separate buttons placed either around or above the "thumbwheel", depending on model.
