Re: i cant reset my play cuse of a cracked screen

My screen is also cracked, I bought a new player but I want to get all of my songs off of my old one and put them on my computer, but it says I need to change the setting of my old MP3 player to MSC mode... but I cant see the screen to do so. What do I need to do?

It seems as though the the damage is not totally visible. If you have the manufacturer's warranty you ought to try sending it in for a replacement MP3 player.

Mp3 turns on but screen is black

This happens a lot with these units (not just insignia). The backlighting goes bad. The lcd probably works, but, because no light is going through, it just looks black. This happens a lot especially if they get wet (moist). Wrap them in plastic before going on a run. The good news is, these are inexpensive to replace on ebay.

My Ipod nanno gen2 4GB screen is no longer showing any displays.

Hi Guys.. try this out

  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

Cracked screen i dropped mine yesterday and the screen cracked if works but i cant see anything! please help!

The only solution for a cracked screen is to replace it, once the screen cracks the LCD is no longer good. If the player is still under warranty see if it's covered if not you can try to replace the screen yourself, but that is usually risky and the screen alone is going to be expensive, best advice is to replace the player and try to be more careful, sorry.

Hope this helps

To reset the player hold in the power button for at least 20 seconds, when you release the button the player should restart on it's own. If it doesn't then try again holding the power button for a little longer. If for some reason the player becomes unstable and resetting doesn?t resolve the issue, then try the Sansa Connect Recovery Tool which will clean up your player and restore it to factory settings. You can download this tool & get instructions on it's use on the following link: Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

My rio nitrus will not show anything on the screen

Ok. You have reset your device, there is a reset hole next to the DC-in hole. Then if it still not working then you have to ask for a new lcd screen/ lcd screen module. That means the LCD of your MP3 Player isn't working anymore. Good Luck

Backlight wont work?

Check the backlight settings in the menu - yes, cracked screen would definitely cause such a problem
