8GB MP3/4 Player

My Player works OK, but the screen stays live continuously whilst playing music tracks. Consequently, the battery drains in 2 instead of 8 hours. The screen goes blank OK when I re-charge the battery. Hope you can help me with this problem. Regards, Mike Brown.

    I have checked around the settings, but there is no facility for changing the backlight. With regard to type of MP3/4 Player, the only writing on the case is TIP4 digital player. I purchased this item from eBay via Hong Kong.

Well there may be a setting on the MP3/4 player that you can change the delay on the screen backlight staying lit for. Rummage around the settings for such a thing. If you can't find anything, some more information on what type of MP3/MP4 player it is would be helpful.

    Has this issue been the case ever since receiving the MP3/4 player, or has it developed this problem?

  • Anonymous Sep 10, 2007

    The player you mentioned is a cheap replica of a branded product, in this case it appears to be a mimic of a Sony MP4 player. The backlight will stay on while playing music due to poor design of the product. Buying these products from Hong Kong and other similar countries is not recommended as there is no reputable company to fall back upon.

    With most players, backlight delay comes as standard, sometimes with an option to change the delay to suit the user - but in this case, the player has been poorly designed by a counterfeit Hong Kong firm. If it developed the fault over time, I would believe it to be a setting, but since it came as it did, it is how it was designed to be.

    You may want to try and persue a refund.

Is it possible to change the order of the tracks?

When listening to music, you can hit 'M' to access the menu. Whilst in the menu, go down to Repeat. The sub-folder has several different options, among them being Random All on the second page. Though the order it plays songs in does not often differ (i.e. When you click random, it will always play Track 4, then 9, then 2, and so on and will do this again the next time you go into your music selection), it can be useful for when you have prior sub-folders to trade off between.

If you have already tried this, you can also plug your player into your desktop computer and move the songs off of the player via the folders available there. When you re-upload files, they tend to be in alphabetical order, so you can also rename them (i.e. from "Charlie on the M.T.A." to "01 Charlie on the M.T.A." and so on and so forth) to get them in a playlist-style format. If you have more than thirty files in a folder on the device, things tend to become out-of-sequence anyway, so that can add a pleasingly random element to your music.

Enjoy <3

How to set up an eclipse fit clip plus mp3 8GB and how to download music without using iTunes?

To use it without iTunes, you can just go to any free music download site and download and save music. Then go to your files and drag all of the music you want on your player into teh player, adn into the MUSIC folder. Then eject the player. It should be able to play the mucic. For the free download site I reccomend but that's just me. Hope this works for your music problem!

It is stuck on "Repeat One" - refer to p.23 of your user's manual -
You can set your player to play music tracks randomly (Shuffle All ) or repeatedly (Repeat One or
Repeat All ).
1. From the main menu, select Settings > Play mode.
2. Use the VERTICAL TOUCH STRIP to scroll up or down the options.

While you are playing music you can see the following active play mode screen.

E250--several problems lol

it could be either a bad usb hub or cord for the sandisk e250, but it would most likely be that one of your CD's is either corupted, or your sandisk detects a virus and is skipping through the song.

They may be talking about a different player make sure its your one. Otherwise check another player thats the same for its function.
