    I have a second clip player and it plays fm stations when this one can't; so, there must be another problem.

    Thanks for your response.

    The player was in pause mode.

    Thanks very much for your help.

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.

    Well, I certainly blew that one. I found some more pertinent information:

    1) Go into the settings menu, go to FM settings, and make sure the FM Region is set for United States. If you are outside the US, change it to "World"

    2) The radio might initially be set for Pause - to test this, turn to a specific radio station that you know you get, and press up on the clickwheel. The "block" icon underneath the radio station should now change to a play arrow, if indeed it was on pause.



    I worked for an mp3 manufacturer, and not all of the models had FM players that worked in the United States, so when the Sansa Clip didn't get radio, I assumed that my Clip was the same way. Thanks to your information, I was actually able to fix the FM radio on my own Sansa Clip.



    Thanks for the alert!

Squealing sound


are you listening via FM transmitter function?

if so, make sure that you do either.

1) when watching the same DVD on both screens, disable the FM transmit on one DVD.
2) when watching separate DVDs on each screen, make sure that the frequencies are separate by as big a gap as you can make.

I had this problem and it was due to both screens transmitting on the same FM frequency and interfering with each other.

I also found that the lower FM frequencies stopped my GPS from working!

After altering the FM transmit settings (FM-TX) button on remote, it was all good.

I get a picture but no sound. I bought the car with the dvd player already installed but no directions.


Hopefully you have a remote control for this unit. There is a FM select button. It's to turn on the FM modulator. When you press the button it will select different radio stations on the FM band. Once you select a station on the DVD, tune your vehicle radio station to the same and you will be able to hear the sound. Use this system to select the station with the best reception and less interference.
If no remote is available, there may be a FM button on the DVD player to perform the same function.

Go to Settings and then to brightness.
Adjust the brightness setting.
