If the power is cycled, the language is stored.
Fear not, you have two ready options.
Let’s try the first: power up your trusty Clip. Press the Home button in the upper right. You can scroll to Settings (you’ll see the familiar EQ slider logo. Now there’s only one catch: if you have the device operating with a subscription service like Rhapsody, the device has an Account choice in Settings. This is important, because the number of presses for the scroll will change.
In my case, I have Rhapsody on the device. So, give the Home button a press to refresh the screen. You can press it till the cows come home, as long as you find the EQ logo for Settings.
Press the center button once. Now we have a few options. When FIRST entering settings, it starts with the Equalizer as the first (top) choice. In my case, I scroll down the correct number of clicks until finding Language. Here’s the list:
Press and Hold
As you scroll through these choices, some things may look familiar in the foreign language, for example, you may see something that looks like USB. Follow the number of steps listed above to scroll back to language, then click the center button.
Now how about something cool and sneaky? There’s a rolling bar on the right side of the display. Try scrolling up and down in settings or any other menu. Note that if there are more than three choices, the rolling bar on the right slides to show you that there are multiple choices not seen. It’s important that you play with this display for a moment, and don’t panic- choices aren’t being made yet unless you press the center button in these displays. When in doubt, simply pop the HOME button and you will see the EQ / Settings logo, and you’re back!
Okay, back to the rolling bar on the right. Press the home button, and you’re in settings. Press the center button ONCE, and you have a lot of choices. Scroll up until the wee bar tops out. If you go too far, it jumps to the bottom! STOP when it does, and scroll back ONE click. Bingo! you are at the TOP of the list. Use the guide above to go the correct number of clicks down to Language, noting that ACCOUNT will be missing if you don’t subscribe to a service.
Click on &#%^ or “language”, and look again at the scroll bar on the right. Find the TOP one just as you did previously. The FIRST choice is English.
Now for choice number two. When in doubt, reloading the FIRMWARE gives the language choice again, starting with English. If all seems lost, follow the firmware thread and install a new copy.
Hope this helps!
