Cannot identify Sansa player - HELP! (PLS) Hi everyone:
I came into the possession of an unknown model of a SANSA Radio/Player and have spent the last several months trying to get some use from it. My second biggest problem is identifying the model so that I can locate a user’s manual and specifications.
The biggest problem has been that I could not get it to display anything (It refused to turn on at all). Then a couple of days ago, the iconic SANSA splash screen magically appeared! Now, my biggest problem has become getting it to do anything else. It now displays a permanent error screen which is not very informative, but appears to be a “file folder” icon with a superimposed “X”.
The only other response that I have been able to induce is that it displays an error message saying “Not enough space for Music DB. Please free 3 MB.” when a Micro SD Card is inserted.
The pixs below are not particularly helpful, but you can see the appearance, and the error screen. The first and second are the front and back; the third is the persistent error screen and the fourth is the “innards” showing the circuit board. The board is marked STANZA Ver 1.3.
Also there is no sound at all through the headphone jack, and it is not recognized on a Windows computer or a Linux computer. I have yet to locate a MAC to see if it may be detected on it.
This message is to ask if anyone can provide any info on this model. I have spent hours googling for any hint of this unit but have not found any clues. The unit is 2" square and about 1/2" thick. The body is metallic and there is a clip on the back of the unit (also metallic). The face is a printed plastic sheet which is just glued on with sticky adhesive. Lastly, the display is black&white (i.e., no color).
