I need help disabling my fm radio on my new sansa clip.

This is possible. It requires firmware upgrade to disable the FM radio. Follow the directions below link:
Good luck.

No sound from radio on sansa clip. mp3 playing still works fine.

Did you accidently pause radio. put sansa in radio mode and push the play/pause button.

I formatted a sandisk sansa with a mac and it formatted everything even the os on it so how do i put it back?????

Here's a page showing links how to reconnect the player to the MAC Operating System and how to use iTunes for the e200 series:

When the firmware on the player has been erased, a download and reinstallation of the firmware has to be performed.

The Sansa Firmware Updater can only be used on Windows based systems: So get the firmware directly from this site :
Check the version of your player to get the matching download.

e.g. selecting e200 v2 there's one download for America; 2 downloads for Europe, one without FM (radio) and one with FM.
Read the instructions on the sandisk forums site for the players recovery.

Need more help ? Just post a comment.

No sound for FM radio mode

The radio is weak on this device - try different areas of the house, and see if you can get reception on one good station. I have heard that the Sansa e200 series had the radio function ruined by a firmware upgrade, but it wouldn't apply to the Sansa Clip. As a last resort, you can reset all of your settings within the player itself- the user manual will show you how to do this.

No FM Radio Available

Hi fitx-64

Every where you site this model on the web, it has an inbuilt FM tuner... you not even having that option is really weird. I take it you have been through the manual to see what is what? :)

There is a firmware upgrade for it here you could do that first and see how you go.

If that does not fix it, I suggest you take it to a Sony service center. I am sure they willl exchange it for you.

No FM Tuner Option

The FM radio feature did not come standard on all HDD1600 models - mostly they were on the European instead of the US variants - unfortunately, they did not consider this when they printed the manuals in Europe

There is no FM radio option in my Sansa e250 mp3 player

Go on the Sandisk Website and download the firmware updater in the support and let it run and update your firmware and it should solve it.

Thank you and please respond with any comments or more questions.

Did you buy it in Europe? It could be a certain model made for Europe not to have FM radio. Or if you bought in the U.S. it should already be activated...

Also, if it has settings see if it has a place for region or country and change it to U.S. if it has it.
