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.

Maytag fridge right door won't stay closed


it may be necessary to reset the hinge adjustment to move the door further across the opening giving the magnets a better area to hold on to . there is a slight amount of adjustment in the mounting points of the hinges. You may have to replace the door gaskets as they become hard over time and the magnets cannot work properly in the hard plastic

First I suggest to check fuses; keep in mind that the OBD-II port didn't work because the power wire in the connector corroded and didn't have a connection anymore. No power equals no OBD worked.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Car runs hot!!


I have the same car and had the exact same problem. I had the heads worked on, replaced the radiator, replaced the cooling sensor, replaced the thermostat, replaced a relay switch under the hood (in fuse box) and it was STILL loosing all the water and then running hot. Auto shop told me the fans were only cutting on, on low and I needed a whole fan assembly kit. $300 later and it's still doing it. Come to find out it was the overflow tank that leads to the raditor. The threads (where the cap goes on) were bad. (Although they didn't look bad at all.) Spent $30 to replace the overflow tank and haven't had a problem since. I hope this helps you out. I'm no mechanic, but I sure wish someone would have offered that suggestion to begin with. I've been fighting with this car since I got it in May and didn't have it fixed till Thanksgiving Day

Sparking at brushes


This isn't abnormal although cleaning the armature with fine emery or sandpaper can help.BTW, new brushes will always need a period of run-in before their contact with the armature has reached its best.
