Reset the player, and then run the Sansa Recovery Tool, Here are a few other "Soft" methods: (but, keep in mind, your player may be experiencing a hardware issue with the LCD screen - if none of the below methods work, the player will need to be replaced - non-replaceable battery:
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.

How do i play back a recording i've made? I have the Sansa m200 series MP3 Player


To play back a voice recording, you will need to do the following steps after turning on the player. Press Power/Menu briefly to get the software menu. Press the Repeat/A-B/Down button to highlight the line Play Music and press Select to enter the play back sub-menu. Press the Down button again to go to the line Recordings and press Select again. Use the Down button to highlight a particular voice recording and press Select to start playing the recording.

The manual for the Sansa M200 MP3 player is available as a PDF from the manufacturer here: http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/241 . The details for playing back a Voice Recording are on page 23-24 (24-25 of the PDF). You will need Adobe Reader or a similar program to read the manual.

I hope this helps.

Downloading instructions Delphi SKYFi3 unit


You can't download Xm programming, like you can from itunes, where you get a song in 3 or 4 seconds.  
Do you mean record music? You must record realtime, either while listening or while the unit is idle in its cradle.
It's easy. while listening to the radio in the cradle (press mode repeatedly to get to Live XM mode), then press the center (play/pause) button.  the menu will pop-up, select Record.  It will give you the option for Song, Channel, and Session.  Just chose one of the first two and press the button.  You should see a microphone appear at the top of the screen.  It's recording.  Follow the same steps to stop the recording.  Setting up a recording session is self-explanatory once you get into that screen.

Recording from camcorder problems


does the unit display what it's pointed at on its display screen or on the viewfinder? if the unit will play a disk but not record the problem may be in the lense or the video sensor. Check if the autofocus operates by running your hand across the front of the unit. if the autofocus knob or lever doesn't turn it may be the power. otherwise it may not operate with -R but only with +R disks?

Display of recorded programs does not match the program playing


There is a very small reset button under the back cover. You will need a small paper clip to reach the button. It is located in the upper left hand corner. The button is not under the batt., it is about 2" above the screw on the side. I don't know if this will solve your problem, but it should reset your radio to its default settings. Good Luck!
