LOL. We do give free advice - if Pyro's Tips & Tricks don't help, check out my Tips and Tricks also - linked to my profile. Or just call Sansa and see if they can help.

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:
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.

Oh wow thank you so much, I tried to do that once, but thought it would not...

One of the typical problems people run into with MP3 players is that they lose the software that came with the player and can't figure out how to get music on or off the player. So here's a quick how to. This will work with most brands of MP3 players, or even USB flash drives.

First you need to plug it in to the USB port, if you are running anything newer than windows 98 you won't need a driver. Double click on my computer and it shows up as a removable disc(usually drive letter f:), double click this drive to open it as folder. This folder will show you all directory's and files on your player, here you can delete any songs on your player by finding the file and deleteing it. From here you can also put your music onto the player by copying and pasting your music files from your hard drive. If you are not sure where your music is located you can run a search by clicking START>SEARCH>FOR FILES OR FOLDERS (if you are running XP click pictures music or video, check music then click search, each file will have it's location in small print below it's name, or you can right click each song and hit copy, then go back to f: drive and right click and hit paste, you can copy more than one). Hope this helps.

Turn on microwave and it blows the fuse. Replace fuse and as quick as you turn on the microwave it blows the fuse again. Thanks Frankie

Oh where oh where can my starter be

hootnick: The starter shouldn't be too much of a pain.
What you want to do, standing in front of the car, in the center, facing the engine, look straight down. Look for the engine support bracket. Once you find it, look to the left of it and follow it up to the engine, where the engine and transmission meet. Roughly half way up the block, you will see the starter!
It shouldn't be that difficult to get to or replace.
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A HOT BATTERY, GOOD CONNECTIONS, NOT THOSE ADD-ON AFTER THOUGHT CABLE ENDS WHICH CORRODE! Those are notorious for selling starters and batteries which were perfectly good! Current goes around the outer parameters of the wire, not through the core, consequently, corroded surfaces from bad connections make for poor diagnosis.
Good luck.

Retro fit

Big money? Oh yes! Easy or hard? Relative to who is doing it. A reasonably competent mechanic should be able to do it with no problems. Some would consider it as plug and play. Basically what it consists of is a modulator and ABS ECM and wheel sensors. Calipers and MCs are the same as non-ABS. You can look at bikebandit and see what is involved, hardware wise as well as $$$!! Don't forget about the additional wiring. If I were going to be doing it, ebay would be my source. Which brings up a related thought. I have not seen any ABS Sprints there lately. Wonder if that is a testament to their increased safety factor? I too wish I had opted for ABS when I bought my Sprint. I will not make that mistake again.

Onkyo TX-DS939 optical selection problem help!

That coaxial, opt-1 and opt-2 are available only if they are not selected to some other channel. So you have to check if opt-2 is selected to Video-1,2,3,4,5,6,7,CD or DAT. Change that to Analog and then opt-2 is free to another device.
