Question about Grundig Audio Players & Recorders
As a side note, most AM/FM radios use a separate antenna for each band, thus why you can pick up AM but not FM. Check your mast antenna connections to make sure they are solid and not missing or loose.

The most common problem for no FM is the failure of component F1 IF transformer. One of the windings on the transformer opens, so you have either no input, or a very low level input to the FM mixer. You need to obtain a copy of the Satellit 700 service manual, and then find F1 in the schematics. You can check the windings with a simple ohm meter to verify if one of the windings is open or not.
If F1 is defective, and I have seen many 700's with this fault, you need to replace it with an adjustable 10.7 MHz IF Transformer in a 7mm can configuration.
I found a replacement 7 mm 10.7 MHz IF Transformer at Talon Electronics. Their part number for it is IND2134, and it costs a whopping $0.80. Here is a link:

Make sure the headphones are connected, since they are the antenna. If you are in an indoor area, the potential for picking up stations is greatly reduced.

Go into the Settings menu of the Sansa, and change the region to "World" if you live outside the US, and change to "United States" if you live inside the US. Then, go back to the Radio mode and see if there is an icon that looks like a block (technically, a "Stop" sign) - if there is, press up on the clickwheel - it will get your radio off of pause mode. You radio should now work again.

Most MP3 players don't actually broadcast FM. Sorry, but you didn't bother to specify make and model of your MP3 player, so I can't be any more specific than that.
Having said that, however, there are a number of products available which will plug into the earphone jack of your MP3 player and broadcast FM from that, so you can tune your car radio to pick that up. They usually have a (small) number of frequencies you can choose, then you simply tune your car radio to match.
