These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
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: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

When listening to music it suddenly stopped playing. Screen frozen saying shutting down but nothing happening


That could be a short in your mp3. You should be a small hole somewhere on it that says reset. You would need to get a needle or something that thin and push the button inside the hole and hold it for ten seconds. That should fix your system.

Ipod Touch vs. V -Touch


I would go for the ipod touch. Although it cost about $150 more than the V-Touch it last longer. For example first two days of owning my V-Touch the screen stopped working and it wouldn't turn on.My son brought his to school and when he got home there was a huge dent in the back plastic. Also they are very iffy a lot of videos won't work on V-touches and music and images. Although for the ipod touch you will be using itunes a lot adding more expenses they are more durable and rugged and have way better screen quality and sound quality. But if you are going for a gift for a younger kid ages 7-9 the V-Touch is exactly what you're looking for, a fun media player that won't last for ever but will last until you buy a more advanced (higher priced) media player. So if you are looking for something that will last for a a year and a half go for the V-Touch if you are looking for a long time commitment go for the ipod Touch.

Samsung YP-Z5 has locked up while playing. Cannot exit, or change, or shut it down


This is the same problem I have! Try cleaning the resistive touch-pad (located under the sticker in the center) and the ribbon wire connecting it (green and flat with 4 strips of metal in it) with a bit of Windex or rubbing alcohol. The pad has various wires of different resistances in it and when certain groups are connected (touched) their resistance combines. For this to actually work, the pad has to be super clean and free of any corrosion.

This picture shows the buttons and the ribbon wire:

The pad is under the sticker with the arrows on it:

Cant get it to play files


Hi,

Getting it to play files all depends on the kind of mp3 you talking about and the kind of format that the mp3 can play.

First check if it is just an normal mp3 player. Normal mp3 player they play mp3 files(audio files), while other type might play other formats like wave formats, aac format,etc.


After checking, if it is not a normal mp3player, you can get a converter to change the format at which it can player with.

Note:

Make sure you check the right format of the player to be sure of the format you are going to you, if not when you put a different format it will not play.

Have a nice day.

Static electricity


everything works but no volume comes out the dock or the head phone plug??

if it's the head phone plug you could have burnt something out in between well i guess that would be true either way

if it is the head phone plug there is a good likely hood you can get away with minor wallet skimming

if it's both then you got me and if it's the dock then just be happy it's not totally blown

if your player stopped responding like downloading the music from your computer to your player or after your player is not working just reset by using paper clip to the hole and press down until your player is off then press on it should work properly sometimes it does freeze or crashed at some point.
