My sansa fuze 8g won.t turn on, the sreen is blank when I put it on, the wheel is still there but I cannot choose any program because nothing can be seen


images?q=tbn:and9gcsb9oziak98wfbldmcvinyavo_rmsvbsyuocssrou-epn-nmma4bqimages?q=tbn:and9gcrpr6kd-tlf1-2z44vxjzmisxr6eqaymcupuii2vgslv7lxdpkifawhich one?
i have a decent amount of knowledge concerning the left picture. your problem is a little vague but i think it may be broken. let me start with the basics. the sansa fuze has a hard reset function that when you hold the slider to the right for a few seconds it turns off. when released it should slide back to the left. when you slide it again it turns it back on "boots". now you say it is a dark screen, but are the lights on the wheel on? when the ribbon cable to the wheel is loose or broken 1 or more of these lights usually go out. if you take a flashlight and shine it directly into the screen do you see any image. it is easier to see when moving through the menus.

My volumn on my ipod 4th gen is not working and when i go to settings it only shows languages no volumn setting


One of the major warnings Apple includes with all of its iPods is the permanent hearing damage that could occur if you have the volume on your iPod turned up too high.


To help combat the problem, the iPod comes with a feature that allows you to set a maximum volume level that your iPod can be played at that level is controlled by a combination that can keep others namely children from turning the volume up to dangerous levels.


The good news is, if that combination falls into the wrong hands, it can be reset.


Use your iPod's click wheel to scroll down to "Settings."


Press the center button located in the middle of the click wheel to select the settings menu.

Scroll down to "Playback" and press the center button to select it.


Scroll to "Volume Limit" and press the center button to select it.


Use the click wheel to scroll to the first number of the old combination and press the center button to select it.


Repeat this process for all four numbers of the old combination.


Use the click wheel to scroll to where you want the maximum volume to be set and press the center button.


Use the click wheel to scroll to "Lock" and press the center button.


Use the click wheel to enter the first number of the new combination when the message "Enter New Combination" appears on the screen repeat the process for the three remaining numbers.


Once the four numbers have been entered, your iPod's maximum volume will be set and your password will be changed.

hope this helps

My sansa e260's navigation wheel lights up but the screen is blank. what do I do . It may be the battery is completely dead. Bob L.


Your battery is not dead because if it was, then navigation wheel would not be lighting up. Your screen is blank because when you touch the navigation wheel, you probably decrease the brightness of the screen. Turn the wheel counterclockwise, as this will brighten up the screen display. Press the center button when done. Reply back if this solution does not help.

ZEN will not power up


First back up all of your music and do this: Turn off the player and make sure it is disconnected from the computer. Then press and hold the play/pause button and turn it on simultaneously. It will then enter recovery mode. Scroll down and select format (all) and let it format and it should work like normal. If it freezes again, then you may need a firmware update.

My mp3 player's screen doesn't work


You may need to now reset the player, that may have been a bit much for it. To reset your Sansa Mp3 player. Slide and hold the Power switch up for approximately 20 seconds. Release the Power switch. To turn the player on, slide the Power switch up then release instantly. If that does not get your player working again, try and Format to clear any corrupt files that may be present.

Screen went blank


Hi, I experienced the same problem this morning, my sansa player (e280, 8Gb) froze in the middle of a song, the screen went blank but the wheel still had its blue light on and i didn't know how to fix it bur then i figured how. If that's the case with your player too, then the solution will be to press and hold the power button till the blue light goes off (abt 8-10sec) and then just restart the player. It should work.

Screen goes blank when i unplug from coputer does it have a battery that might be bad and if so how do change it out?


Hi shannonsprou,

this is normal operation for the ipod nano. It is a power saving feature.

Just so long as you can turn the screen on again by click on the scroll wheel. Make sure the ipod is unlocked by sliding the clip at the top of the ipod nano so no orange shows on top.

Nathan.

Screen is blank - blue whee in lit


I just encountered the exact same problem with my mp3 player. It is the 2nd time that this has happened to me. I have taken it back to the store both times and they have given me a new one. They keep telling me that illegally downloaded music will cause it to crash but i only had CDs on there. I guess i dont have a real solution other than taking it back and hoping for one that works.
