I also do have the problem, that my FM radio does not work.
I already went through the existing postings covering this issue and tried a lot of the proposed solutions, but without success.
Product: Clip (black)
a) I updated the firmware to V01.01.35A and the FM radio does not work.
(Unfortunatelly I can not tell whether FM radio worked at all with the original firmware, as I did not use the clip for quite a long time and updated the firmware just to be up to date, without testing the FM radio function befor the update)
b) I updated the firmware as described in one of the postings with the “a”-extension of the FW file.
c) I restarted the Clip and the installation of the FW went fine.
d) I changed the Settings for the FM radio to “World” and “Stereo”
e) I ran in the radio menu the “Auto-Preset” scan. The progress bar started and completed, but no radiostation was found. (Earphone was plugged in to have the antenna.)
f) I did a manual selection of the FM frequency of a known broadcasting station in the area, but no reception (not even noise; however playing music files works, so earphones etc are working fine)
g) I repeated steps a)-f) also with firmware extensions “E”, “F” and even “T” and all Region combinations of “Europe”, “world”, “America” with the same negative result.
a) Is it possible thet the FM radio receiver hardware module is not implemented in the Clip version I do have?
How can I check this?
Will there be a FM Radio “Auto-Preset” progress bar visible, even there would not be a FM receiver hardware module available in my clip version?
b) As i do NOT use the original earphones , but Sennheiser CX300II with the clip, can it be that this ear phone can for any reason not be used as antenna (shielded cable)? (I can not imagine, why, but you knever know!)
Thanks in advance for any comments.
