Mp3 player help

by thomas840 / October 15, 2012 12:56 AM PDT

I have recently purchased a Sylvania smp4200 4gb mp3 player. It is just a cheap basic mp3 player. My question is does anyone know how to turn shuffle on/off and such. There is no screen and I do have the manual, but it has absolutely no instructions for how to use these functions(shuffle, repeat, etc.) and I have somehow accidentally set it to shuffle and can not turn that off. It is driving me crazy. I have wiped it and re-loaded it with new music to no avail. I am ready to take a hammer to it, I am so frustrated with it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I don't own it but the button changes it.

Thanks for the link. It is vague but I think I get the idea. Hopefully it will work. The only thing that sucks(not really a big deal though) is that I have so much music loaded on it right now. I think I will just wipe it and add maybe one short album and try it. Thanks again. It was driving me crazy

The only clue was in the manual and what folk answered.

The manual notes a short press of the play button and a long press but it appears there's a time period inbetween?

Sorry but I don't have this to play with.
