Question about SanDisk Sansa View 8GB MP3 Player - Black

2 Answers

My sansa view 16gb unit stopped picking up radio signals. I also noticed that the clock stopped at the same time. Any attempt to play the radio locks the unit up. To further confuse me, it will charge when plugged into the usb but it will no longer interface with windows media player. Essentially it is a glorified cd player with the songs that I had on it at the time of malfunction.

    One part works now. I formatted the drive from the usb menu. I can now interface and sync with my music. I still cannot access radio and the clock still does not work. If I try to access the radio, then the unit simply locks up at the highlight. I then have to hardboot (hold the on button up for 20 seconds) to make the unit useable again. Thoughts?

    The unit does not have a reset on it (or at least not one that I can see) Are there any hidden resets on the view 16gb unit and where might I find it.

OK..if it is seen by the computer again..now to make it work with all features try to reset it ...These kinda devices have a hidden button in a little hole at the side(it is written reset near it ) and you have to press it with something sharp...Usually after this kinda operation the functions are restored..

Hi,
The only way to solve this problem is to format the player . First connect the unit to your computer, go to my computer, right click on the removable drive associated to your player and select format. This will erase all data off the unit and correct errors from it; making the unit usable again. Before clicking on start make sure that the file system is on "FAT32" and that the format options are all unchecked.

Hope this helps .

Like other MP3 players, the SanDisk Sansa series of music and video players lets you listen to your music while on the go. With their easy-to-use control interfaces, Sansa players let you add, change or delete tracks in a playlist quickly. However, there might be times when you want to lock the player so that you don't stop playback or change the current track inadvertently -- like when exercising or jogging. Locking a Sansa player ensures that music plays continuously even if you touch controls on the face of the unit accidentally. To make changes to a queued play list or stop playback on a Sansa with the controls disabled, you must first unlock the player manually.
Sansa Clip Zip and Fuze+ Players Step 1 Press and hold the power button on the Clip Zip or Fuze+ player a few seconds to power on the device. Scroll to "Music" on the home screen and press the "Select" button. The Select button is a rectangular or square button in the center of the button-control pad beneath the viewing screen on the Sansa player.
Step 2 Press the "Play" button to play the first track in your play list. Alternatively, press the right or left arrow button to navigate to another song in the list, and then press the "Play" button.
Step 3 Press the "Power" button on the top of the player once quickly to lock the unit. The player will play music continuously while disabling all navigation controls on the face of the unit. A padlock icon appears on the face of the player indicating the lock feature is active. Don't hold the Power button after you press it, as this will turn off the player.
Step 4 Unlock the player by quickly pressing the "Power" button. The Unlocked icon appears on the player screen.
Sansa Clip+ Step 1 Power on the Sansa Clip+ player.
Step 2 Choose "Music" on the Main Menu screen, then press the "Select" button. The Select button is the square one in the center of the control pad on the face of the player.
Step 3 Press "Play" to begin playing tracks from your play list.
Step 4 Press and hold the "Home" button just below the viewing screen. After a couple of seconds, a padlock icon appears at the top of the viewing screen indicating the Sansa Clip+ locking feature is active.
Step 5 Press and hold the "Home" button again to unlock the Clip+ player.
Tips
  • With the Sansa Clip Zip and Fuze+ players, locking the devices disables all navigation controls on the unit (i.e. Play and Fast Forward), but not the volume control. If you lock the Clip Zip or Fuze+, you can still adjust the volume as needed. By contrast, if you lock the Clip+ player, the unit disables all controls on the player -- including the volume control buttons.

Sounds like it is not picking up the radio signal.

I got a new Sangean clock radio R22. Te atomic clock doesn't pick up the time and I can't get it to set manually either. It reads ony L 0 on the right side. I have the part that receives set in a window....


I just had the same problem which you find posted here on FixYa.com. The problem solved itself overnight for me. I left the RCR-22 unit plugged in and searching for the signal when I woke up the next morning the time was set and the Atomic signal indicator was solid instead of flashing. It has kept perfect time since then. My only issue is that setting the alarm clock-radio is complicated.

Clock keeps working plus 1 hour Lexibook RP200GB set the time but every night it resets to 1 hour ahead can't find user manual please help


Hope this helps I had same irratating problem
1. The RP200 is designed to automatically synchronize its calendar clock once it is brought within a range of 1500km of the Frankfurt DCF77 radio signal. When the RP200 is brought within this range, its auto-control mechanism will override all manual settings.
2. The clock automatically starts scanning the RF 433MHz signal after new batteries are inserted in the main unit. When receiving the RF 433MHz radio signal, the Radio Tower symbol starts to blink. A complete reception generally takes about 10 minutes, depending on the strength of the radio signal.
3. When the reception is complete, the Radio Tower symbol will stop blinking and remain solid
4. For an optimal reception, place the clock away from metal objects and electrical appliances (i.e. television, computer, monitor, etc) to minimize interference.
Notes:
• The unit will receive the RCC signals every day at 2am.
• The RCC signal can also be triggered by holding the key for 2
seconds in time mode.
• When the unit is searching or receiving the RCC signal (which lasts
about 5 minutes), none of the keys is working except the key.
• Press and hold the key for 2 seconds if you wish to stop to the
RCC signal search.
If the RP200 is brought outside the range of the Frankfurt DCF77 radio signal or if the signal is interfered, please set the time and date manually according to the instructions below. If the unit is located within the radio-controlled range, you may want to customize some of the clock settings.
Note: When no key is pressed for more than one minute, the unit returns to time mode (time, date and temperature display
World Time Clock
This function allows you to adjust the clock to a time zone. It is
particularly useful for travelers. Set the clock to the city you are located in, or to a city in the same time zone.
1. In time mode, press [MODE] twice to select the world time clock.
2. Press the key to select the city in which you are located.
3. Press to adjust the summer saving time function.
4. Press and hold [SET] to set the world time as the local time. When the local time is the same as the world time, the icon flashes.

How do i make the atomic clock work on my wireless thermometer?


The main clock need to be located close to a window.

Although the signals often pass through the walls of a house, they can also be blocked by the metal in the walls.

Also if the clock is located close to your tv or computer, the signal may be blocked.

Good Luck!

I recently bought a Garmin 200W Widescreen satnav. I have tried and found a satelite but each time when I take back indoors I loose it, is there anyway to lock the signal in after acquiring.


Hello snippey,

Global Positioning System satellites transmit radio signals which are received by your GPS receiver unit. Your GPS receiver uses these signals to calculate its current location, speed and altitude.

The GPS is not able to perform these calculations unless it is actually able to receive the radio signals from the satellites. Radio signals can be blocked by obstructions such as tall buildings, heavy foliage, tall hills and mountains, etc. Anything that prevents your GPS receiver from having a clear view of the sky will affect it's operation. This includes attempting to use the unit indoors or inside of a vehicle without an external antenna.

There is no way to "lock" the signals in. The GPS simply must be able to receive the signals and in order to do that it needs to be able to "see" the sky.

Hope this helps,
Ken
