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.

Turn on all of the devices in your sound system. Turn off any auto-equalizers on your sound system to gain fullest control over frequencies. This switch might be found on the receiver or the equalizer itself.
    • 2
Play a test song on repeat. Choose a song with both extremely high and extremely low instruments so that you have a wide frequency range to listen for.

    • 3
Listen for any obvious distortions in the highs and lows of the songs. Lower the knob on your equalizer for any distorted frequencies until the distortion disappears. Try at first to find the highest setting possible without distortion.
    • 4
Adjust all frequency ranges in relation to each other to find a pleasing blend for your room, trying not to let any one frequency range dominate the others. Use the highest non-distorting settings found in Step 3 as maximum settings, but don't be afraid to lower a booming bass or a screeching flute that disrupts the overall blend of the music.
    • 5
Play a song from a different genre to test how the EQ works for different types of music. A hip hop song will have louder lows than a string quartet, for example, so make sure your bass frequencies sound crisp on both types of music.

When I play a cd the sound is great but when I listen to music on the radio (FM) it sounds terrible. I have adusted all of the knobs but nothing helps. It sounds to high pitched.


Hi, when you turn on the rear audio button, in the back of the center console, the rear speakers turn off, to enable headphone use in the rear. perhaps this is the issue. Good luck...Coop

Samsung eternity wont play back sound


I had a problem similar to this a few times and found that it was due to the phone thinking that there was still something in the headphone jack so the only sound that would come from the phone was a ringtone or when using the speakerphone. To fix it you can plug in and unplug your headphones (while playing music) until the external sound playback comes back. Hope this helps!

My mp3 on my pantch matrix wont play the music from the external


I had the same problem. I put music on my SD card, and whenever I tried to play it, my phone would reset. I looked through the files, and found that the songs i had bought on iTunes were all in MP4 format. I downloaded the 4media mp4 to mp3 converter, and converted the files. When I put the card back into my phone, the music player worked perfectly!

Note: MP4 files DO NOT have question marks beside them in the phone. The only way you can tell is to highlight the files on a computer. Hope this was a help!!

Hi my sansa shaker wont play music


The Sansa Shaker ONLY plays MP3's, I downloaded a bunch of .wma files and kept getting the uh-oh so I put on an mp3 I had a voila! it played. Bummer though. Guess I gotta figure out how to convert my music files for my daughter, or pitch this thing and buy one that will play any media file.

What is the Q-Factor and where should it be set??


The Q factor does have to do with tones and pitches of your music. This determines a Quality factor of how pitches are placed (high tones, low tones, and mid tones) and using the Q factor will use a preset setting to put the tones at a high proformance audio.

Simple test and trick for you.

  1. Put in your favorite cd.
  2. Turn on the Q factor
  3. Play a song and listen to it for atleast 45 seconds
  4. turn off the Q factot
  5. Play that same song for atleast 45 seconds
  6. Now you determine if the quality used by the Q factor is better or worse

For some songs that have close pitch audio, it may not be as noticeable, so you can repeat and test. Give it a try, because then you can understand it more by hearing then reading. Its all about how you want it to sound. Good luck

Thank You

Try playing that particular track on your PC. If the same happens, then it is a corrupt file.
