Question about Sony NWZ-B103FBLK MP3 Player

1 Answer

No FM Radio Available

There is no icon for the FM radio option in the home menu, but the manual says it is there (it is not). I bought this Walkman in Mexico, but it came with a Spanish/English manual -- the English version being exactly the same as the US one. Also, the sony website stock images (USA and Mexico) show the same 3 icons as the home menu screen on my WALKMAN (no fm radio icon anywhere), but I can't find any options or clues anywhere else to start setting up the fm radio options. Why would they have eliminated this option (if they did?) Any suggestions for resolving this?
Thx

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.

My sansa screen is showing Arabic, I need to reset it to English.


power up by sliding up the power button on the left side, 'til it lights up. If it's not at the main menu with some picture icons (Settings, Music, Voice, FM Radio), then press the 'lil HOME button. Then scroll up or down to get to the SETTINGS menu (thats the one with the icon of four EQ switches on a board with animation of the 2 middle switches movin' up and down). Press the middle button (or right ">>I" on the circular pad). You should be at the Settings menu, scroll up or down and highlight the LANGUAGE option. Best way to find it when set in any language on this menu.... see an option that has some foreign text then FM? Thats the FM settings option, and the one above that is the LANGUAGE settings option, so highlight that one and press the middle button ( or right ">>I" on the circular pad), and you should be in language menu. Just scroll up or down to ENGLISH and press the middle button ( or right ">>I" on the circular pad). HTH!

THE ONLY OPTION I CAN GET IS THE FM RADIO. HOW DO I VIEW MY MUSIC THAT I THOUGHT I DOWNLOADED?


Turn the player on, press the small (home) button on the front, when you see the FM radio screen press the up/down wheel to access the other menu items. When you see the Music screen press the arrow wheel to the right to access the Music menu and the MP3 songs you have put on it. Hope this helps.

I have an ipod classic 160gb and i go under settings/main menu and i have radio checked isnt it supposed too??


Do you mean that you don't have access to the radio because you need the optional radio piece which connects to the bottom of the device if you wish to use the radio. You can either purchase the radio device or go without radio.

LANGUAGE IS NOT ENGLISH


It was your setting. You can change it to english.
For sansa clip:
1. From main menu, select settings (picture with 4 bars)
2. Use up/down button to find " FM...", the language option is right about FM..., select it and use up / down button to find English.
3. Press home button to come back main menu
Good luck
For sansa clip plus:
1. the same as about.
2. Getting into Settings, you have 4 options (Music, Audiobook, Radio, and System Settings). Languages with letters (a, b, c, ....), you can see "Radio...." option, move the selection bar down 1 - it is System Settings. If Languages without letters a, b, c, ...., you have to get in to each option, at each option you move the selection bar down or up to find letters " USB...." , it means you are inside System Settings, from USB, press down button 6 times, and select it (language option), scroll up/ down to select English.

I have a sansa clip mp3 but i can't turn on the fm radio. help


1) Go into the settings menu, go to FM settings, and make sure the FM Region is set for United States. If you are outside the US, change it to "World"
2) The radio might initially be set for Pause - to test this, turn to a specific radio station that you know you get, and press up on the clickwheel. The "block" icon underneath the radio station should now change to a play arrow, if indeed it was on pause.

FM Radio was erased from the MP 3


OK this seems to easy a fix for you, but try it.
* In the main menu where it lists your options (and where FM Radio would be) press the 'Menu' button on your Microphoto (bottom right button) and there is an option to 'Configure Menu' and in there should be the option to show FM Radio again. Hope that helps you.

I have a similar, but different problem, so ill list below, maybe it will help someone out.

i also replaced the (broken) 8gb microdrive with 8gb compact flash in my Zen Microphoto, which worked flawlessly! BTW i bought the A-Data 'SPEEDY CF 8GB' from newegg.com.

My FM Radio still shows up, but only gets MONO sound on the Right channel, its very frustrating. i took it all apart again and made sure no connections were loose or broken, but everything seems perfect. i believe it to be a firmware issue, i think ill try to roll back the drivers. im using firmware 1.31.01.

its just annoying to have to roll back to Media Player 10 everytime just to install the firmware and have windows properly communicate with the zen... :[
