My sansa clip is frozen on the blue flower


One issue that people experience with the Sansa Fuze player is that the screen turns white when they are trying to use it. If you experience this common Sansa Fuze MP3 player repair issue, you need to reset your player. Hold down the "Play" and "Power" buttons for about 20 seconds. The player should automatically reset.
MP3 Player Freezes

Another issue is that the player freezes. You may see lights on the player, but it won't do anything. Follow the below steps to correct this issue:

1. Use the above steps to perform a hard reset.

2. Turn the player back on, and slide the "Power" button upward.

3. Use the USB cord that came with your player, and connect it to your computer. Only connect your player directly to the computer. Don't connect it to a USB hub.

4. See if your computer recognizes that a device was connected to it. Or, look in "Devices and Printers" folder, and see if the device shows up in it.

If your device doesn't reset, and the computer doesn't recognize it, contact SanDisk for additional assistance. Or, you can attempt to repair the device yourself.
Repairing Internal Components

If your Sansa Fuze player is out of warranty, you can attempt to repair internal components. This is an "enter at your own risk" solution, but you may be able to fix the issue. If it doesn't work, or if you damage another component, you will most likely need to get a new player.

1. Shut off the device.

2. If you don't have one, purchase a case opener tool. This is a tool with an extremely small head that is used specifically for opening up small devices.

3. Place the head of the tool in the seam of the device, and rise up the faceplate. Do not do this forcibly, or you'll break the ribbon cable connected to it.

4. Remove the ribbon cable from the faceplate.

5. Examine the battery cable. If this connection is loose, your Fuze player won't turn on. Plug the connection firmly into the port.

6. Check the LCD screen connection. A loose connection here means that you can't see anything on your screen. Disconnect the cable from the port, and reconnect it.

7. Reattach the cable to the faceplate, and reattach the faceplate. Turn the device back on.

These Sansa Fuze MP3 player repair suggestions may not fix all issues. If your player is still not working properly, either take it back to the place where you bought it, or contact SanDisk for additional help.

A file might have corrupted on the system.

If you uploaded some POI file just before the crash, it might be a defective POI database. You can delete it by booting in test mode (turn device off, press on the lower left corner, keeping pressed turn the device on, wait for the test menu to appear. If the unit stays on, you can connect it to a computer and see its memory, locating the poi.gpi file in the POI folder. Move it on your computer (just to have a backup; one never knows), safely remove and disconnect the USB device from the PC and power cycle the Nuvi).

Assuming it's not the POI, you will have to perform the Firmware Restore on your device (or you might install the newest firmware from Garmin, as well). When in Test Mode (see above), the Garmin Web Updater function should work: http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp

Also, you may try a Master Reset:

How do I clear out old address locations on the tomtom ONE from start to finish I have 2 adresses in there that is NO LONGER needed


It depends on if you have them set as favourites, POI (Points of Interest) or recent locations?

If Favourites or POI, just go into the menu/settings, and delete from there, if recent detination, do a soft reset. If that fails, do a hard reset

Having problems with poi loader cant find csv file to be able to download files.unit is a garmin c31o


Here's how you get custom POI files on a Nuvi:

1. Download and install Garmin's POI Loader.

2. Create a folder on your computer, suggest Desktop, with a name like "Custom POIs". The name and location doesn't matter but you have to remember what it's called and where it is.

3. Go online and look for 3rd party POI files. Places like www.poi-factory.com have dozens if not hundreds of files.

4. Select ones you want on your gps to download. Make sure you are getting the files in the correct format. Newer Nuvis use *.csv files. Not sure if the C310 does. Download your POI files into the folder you created.

5. Plug your USB cable into the GPS and your computer. Wait until the driver finishes loading.

6. Run POI Loader and follow the instructions until you get to a screen asking for location of POI files. Point it towards the folder you created. Next tell it to load the POI files. After a few seconds it should give you a message "XXXX data points successfully loaded".

You should now be able to go to POI/Extras screen and see "Custom POI Files". Open that up and your custom POIs should be there.

POI menu with custom POI does not appear anywhere on the C330?


You need to use Garmin POI loader to input custom POI. After loading POI's they will show up in "My Favorite" under "Custom POI"
