a bit of an unusual question I have, hoping to get it resolved before sending this mp3 back. So I’ve had my sansa clip zip not too long, maybe 4-6 weeks. it was working no problem, really loved teh radio option, held just enough music, etc. but very recently it has started to act up. allow me to highlight its main problems:
-upon startup, I am automatically taken to the already playing music screen (has title, artist and progression of track, with album artwork or just background media). there is no option to select ‘music’ or ‘radio’
-the “back” button. the button that takes you to the previous screen, will ONLY function as a previous song button (even weirder, if the music is stuck on pause, then i click ‘back’ (trying, of course, to get to the radio screen, or at least let me pick the song!) then it will find a new song and AUTOmatically start playing it.
I am stuck in this hell of music that I can’t control~! Can anybody help? I know it’s a very odd problem, not one i’ve found others have experience after looking around this site… I know that there is HOPE, because just once I “format” 'ed the drive when it was plugged into the computer, and after that (deleting all my music), it took me to the home screen where I had access to radio, settings, etc (and the back button actually took me to the previous screen :0~!) but after not too long (maybe half a day, using it twice) when i pushed power it took me straight to the currently playing screen, with no option of getting out.
any advice you all had would be wonderful! I really enjoy this mp3 player aside from this huge mess and don’t want to have to return/exchange/get a new one, but i mean, I need the FM stations, and I have to be able to at least choose what song I’m going to listen to. hopefully someone here can help! a thousand thanks!!
