There could be a damage or corrupted file in the sansa clip. I suggest to reformat the player. To reformat the player. First turn off the player. Then slide the power switch down it will be showing red, now press and hold the center or the middle button on the player while connecting the player to the computer. It will be detected as a drive on your computer, now right click on it and choose FORMAT, make sure the file system is FAT32 then click start to continue formatting the player. This will erase or remove all the songs on your player but this will fix the problem that you are having

My rca m4304-A mp3 player says profiling requires 20mb free space shutting down and then when i try to hook it up to the computer it will not show that it is hooked to the computer and goes off


Restoring RCA M4304A Recorder Firmware

Symtom: recorder shows OPAL splash screen, then shows "profiling requires20mb of free space, shutting down" and then shuts down. Recorder cannot be accessed by windows or the RCA easyrip software.

Solution: Use the firmware update found here: http://www.voxxsupport.com/images/downloads/OPAL_066F_85A4_85A5_0_1140_SIG.EXE

This update needs to be ran on an xp computer running 32 bitOS. It was tested in a Win 7 64bitmachine and proven to not work.


Necessary steps taken to get the firmware to properlyrestore were as follows:

1. Hold in the power (menu) button for 10 seconds(the splash screen will show and it will give the error message, ignore it)

2. While still holding the power button, press theplay/pause button and hold down.

3. Release the power button while still holdingdown the play/pause button and wait 5 seconds.

4. While still holding the play/pause button plugin the usb cable to the recorder. Continue to hold the play/pause button foranother 5 seconds after plugging the cable in.

5. Release the play pause button then launch theEXE for the firmware update. Minimize the instruction screen so you can see thefull update screen.

6. Leave the format checkbox checked (check it ifit isn't checked) formatting is crucial to this working.

7. Once the status in the update window changesfrom initializing to ready click start to update the recorder. It will go through formatting, then updating.

8. Once the status shows complete disconnect therecorder and with any luck the recorder is usable again. The media files will obviously have to bereloaded, but the recording is functional at least.

It keeps intializing


Install and run the Philips Device Manager.

Press and hold the [VOL+] button on the player whilst connecting to the PC.

Philips Device Manager will show the device connected in repair mode. Release the [VOL+] button and follow the on-screen prompts.

This will format the player and re-flash the firmware.

Disconnect the player when finished, and re-start it. It should briefly show initiallizing and then shut down.

Re-start the player again, and it should show "updating", then start up.

Occasionally this will cure the problem. If it doesn't try it 2 or 3 times.

If it still doesn't work, then unfortunately you will have to take it back, as there is no other known cure.

Sa6087/37 continually updating?????


Not sure why this happens, but you could try repairing the player with the Philips Device Manager from the product CD.

Run Philips Device Manager, then press and hold [VOL+] whilst plugging into the PC.

Device Manager should show the device connected in repair mode. Follow the on-screen prompts.

This will format the player and re-load the firmware.

When you have disconnected the player, swithc it back on. It will show "initializing" briefly, then shut down.

Re-start the player. It should show "updating" and then go to the main menu screen.

Have you tried holding the power button down for about 30-60 seconds? It should power off itself off. You should be able to then power it back on and it work normally.

You might try a firmware update on your daughter's. Look at solution 4 here: http://www.fixya.com/support/t131894-format_sansa_e250

I works for any Sansa e series.

Initializing keeps flashing on and off in a blue screen


Uninstall the existing Device Manager.
Download the latest Device Manager software for this device from www.p4c.philips.com and install this.

Repair the player using the updated software.

If the problem still persists, try the update once more.

If this still doesn't work, then the main PCB is faulty and will have to be replaced.

If the repair does work, the player briefly shows a message on screen when restarted, then shuts down again.

You then need to restart the player again and it shows Updating, and then goes to the main menu.

Player shuts itself off


Obvious stuff first. Check battery. Make sure the spring is making contact. Seeing as you are getting some power I would say thats not an issue. Connect it to a PC and make sure it has songs of the correct format. WMA and MP3. If its not a matter of incorrect file formats, it would be an internal problem. Possibly a short somewhere on the board. I am not sure as to the ease of repair on these players. SO I would look at sending it to the manufacturer.
