Just tried my e260, and I had to press the power button once to exit the tuner back to the main menu. There is probably another solution, but that is all I know at the moment. Hope that helps. BTW, Merry Christmas!

Re: How Do I Exit Radio on the e250?

The Sansa remembers the last thing it was doing when shut down.  This means, if you were listening to an audio file, it will resume when powered up.  If the file is paused (note, there is no "stop" for a file), the Sansa will power up in the paused state.

 

Now for the FM radio.  With the FM selected, try pressing the play button.  Now, we have a slightly different situation.  You can "stop" radio playback by pressing the play / pause button, which effectively "mutes" the radio.  Simply stated, the Sansa "halts" in the present mode, ready to resume playback of the last thing selected.

 

To completely exit FM radio playback, simply navigate to Music and select a track.

"To completely exit FM radio playback, simply navigate to Music and select a track"

 

It seems his problem is he doesn't know how to do that.

 

chewy_bad_ass  - Look at the symbol on the "down" button below the volume wheel.  That symbol represents a menu, and in most operation modes that will get you the specific control menu for that mode.  (Don't know if it does that everywhere, as I only use Music and Radio.)

 

Now look at the lower left corner of the display while playing your FM.  You should see that same symbol.  That is telling you that the button in the lower left corner of the player will also bring up a menu - the overall device menu.  Press this to be able to switch between Radio, Music, Video, etc.   If you press and HOLD that button for a couple of seconds it acts as a power switch.

ouch indeed!

 

just got a sandisk for xmas and stumbled

upon radio mode waiting for the bus today

cannot get out of it!!!!

 

tried all the options outlined above...

the bottom square button leads to

the radio menu which does not contain 

a return to the previous menu option,

only these 4:

-delete preset

-auto presets

-view all presets

-recording

 

pressing the power button always turns

the thing off, no matter how many times or

the duration, and when i power it back up,

it's back in radio mode.

 

l looked up how to remove the battery

online, but every youtube i see looks

like they have to risk damaging the

device to do so...

 

beginning to think theres no way out
