Question about SanDisk Audio Players & Recorders

Answer to question from k_akima: No, factory reset doesn't work. I had tried that earlier (it's always worked before if I had problems) but it doesn't help. Thanks.

    Okay. The menu button is supposed to get you out of FM mode, but apparently doesn't. Are you saying the reset puts you back into FM mode? Do you have a microSD card installed? If so, what happens after you remove it and reset the Sansa? What happens when you connect the Sansa to a computer?

    No microSD card installed. Reset didn't work, but when I plugged the Sansa into the computer it reset. Thanks for your help.

My last suggestion is to do a factory reset and reinstall the app

How do i return my acer aspire 5630 to factory settings

Method of Restoring yourPC to factory reset: Try tapping the F10 key every couple of seconds during a boot. Most OEMmachines have a recovery partition on the hard drive. Don't worry about the partition, it's probably hidden and it doesn't concernyou. In that partition there is an image of your system that was made justbefore it left the factory. Just follow the directions to recovery your system and you should be fine.You 'might' have an option to do a 'non-destructive' or a 'destructive'recovery. If you choose the 'non-destructive' it will 'try' to repair yoursystem and save all your files. If you choose the 'destructive', it willrestore your system to the way it came from the factory. I suggest trying the 'non-destructive' first. You can always try the'destructive' if it doesn't work.

I have a linksys router and i have tried to access the configuration menu. I have tried the common with no sucess. i have even looked at my details for the ip and it is That does...

Resetting by pressing the button for a total of sixty seconds usually works! While holding the button you can also power cycle the router once or twice. That should put the router back to default settings. Its frustrating sometimes but usually works by prolonged resetting and power cycle. Good luck!

Im Using LGKm555e the problem is my camera was not working .. Its capture fail always everytime i try to use it help plzz,

Try to check your phone memory if there's still available memory and sufficiency to save a photo. delete some unused data or file to save space and to be able to operate any other phone features. also check the memory card if still have a space to save data.

If the above method doesn't work,try to reset your phone by going to setting and choose reset factory settings,and if ask for a code,the default code will be 0000.

hope this method will works.thank you for visiting fixya.

What version of ActiveSync do you have on your computer?

I assume that you have had this device for a while and are not new to it. I am currently using version 4.2 of ActiveSync, which you can download from Microsoft, and rarely have any problems with it.

I would try doing a soft-reset on this machine, restarting your desktop computer. I would recommend uninstalling ActiveSync if you have an older version and installing 4.2, or even 4.5, they both seem to work well for me, and I rarely have problems. If this doesn't work, you can always do a hard reset on your 900, which is removing both batteries, waiting no less than 15 minutes with both batteries off, and then re-inserting the batteries and starting over. (Do this only if you have nothing you would regret losing, or if you have backed-up your data.)

I mentioned the hard-reset because it can often save you a lot of hassle of looking all over for the answer and then finding out that the answer you got gets you nowhere.

If you are able to, I would do a hard reset plus uninstall older version of ActiveSync and install either version 4.2 or 4.5 on your Windows XP or earlier machine, and then see if that works.

If that does not work, go to, go to the section for Handheld PC's, and make a post with your problem and someone will answer. They are really good with these machines and can usually point you in the right direction.

Hope this helps
