    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!

Icant listen to fm radio


The antenna for this and many other MP3 players is the wire for the headphones. If your using a short aux cable between say this player and a dock or speaker it may not be functioning as the worlds best antenna.

some mp3 players REQUIRE the headphones, headset, earphones connected. The wire functions as an antenna. So try using it with headphones. If the problem persists, then it has something to do with the gadget itself. Hope this gave you a hint on what to do! Good luck!

Go to Settings and then to brightness.
Adjust the brightness setting.
It actually sounds like you have a bad LCD.
Possibly return to whoever fixed it and get another LCD

Iriver e10 how to record radio

After you long press the right arrow button the special menu appears: Record, Saved FM Recording, FM Recording Quality, Save Preset, Stereo/Mono, Auto preset, Tuner region. The FM Radio works very well, it has amazing reception compared to cellphones with FM support, but it won't continue playback while you are reading a text file. You must stay in the FM app to have it activated.
