Buzzing noise I am gettin a buzzing noise (like a jet engine getting ready for take-off) part way thru listening to an MP3 download of talk readio. Everything will be fine and then all of a sudden this noise will start and I just rip off my earphones before I go deaf. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks!!!

Re: buzzing noise

If this happens all the time you may check the headphone jack for any corrosion, rust, etc. by taking a handy flashlight and shining it into that jack. Also, try another pair of headphones, if this happens all the time. If this problem occurs only while listening to that one audio track, you can check that the file plays nicely on your computer, and if it doesn't you may wanna download a new copy of that track. If those simple steps fail to result in solution, you can take an alcohol quetip into the headphone jack and clean inside, just make sure its dry when you plug your headphones back in. All in all, however, it sounds like you are having some issues either with a tuner or audio decoder chip inside the MP3 player. Typically, that results in simply the purchase of a new one. If you do get a new one, purchase a warranty - small electronics are more liable for damage than larger ones and it usually pays to invest in warranties when it comes to such things.

You must upgrade your Audible subscription to get transfer rights - if you ever let your subscription expire, you can kiss those play rights goodbye - this is the cold new world of mp3 player services

Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa 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 "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out:

Mp3 palyer

Firstly, "re-set" the T9 (ie hold 'MENU & REC' for 3 secs to re-initialise the built-in firmware - refer to your manual, or download manual off Samsung website). This procedure will overide everything. If this gets it goin, then download the latest firmware update from Samsung website (download centre/mp3) and save newest firmware onto your T9 - your manual should explain how to do this. Always update your T8 with latest firmware when available (appropriate with your Windows OS), to eliminate any bugs in the firmware. Failing this, then a replacement battery is the next step. If still under warranty (ie less than 12mnths old), then have an approved Samsung service agent look at it Free of charge. Good luck.
