Question about Toshiba Gigabeat MEGF40S MP3 Player

7 Answers

Toshiba Gigabeat F20

Touchpad doesn't properly respond on fully charged device that was under charging long period when being not used. When switched on, it immediately started to play something random; then over time, when switched on, it only shows main menu; any touch of pad just scrolls menu all way to very top or very bottom; right/left buttons do not work at all; when I press the PLAY button on remote, it plays randomly selected music; pressing >> or<< may change tracks, but randomly, from Babbitt to Xenakis or Nono when omitting anything else; on screen, there invariably sits the main menu.

    ATTENTION, THE SAME EXPERT!
    Thank you, dear expert12, you put in me some hope, but I need to ask you more questions:
    1)because the lithium battery is built-in, in no way can I leave the item WITHOUT BATTERY (as you write) - only DISCONNECT IT FROM THE CHARGER. Right? did you mean IT? and
    2)do I need to disconnect it AND wait until the Gigabeat discharges fully... an all music in it will be gone?

    I was sure that Junoon007 is a person, but I see there are many under that guise. I appeal to a person who gave me an advice about Firmware update. Please instruct me in detail how to to that, step by step (connect to the computer etc.)

  • speravy35 Sep 04, 2008

    Thank you, Ithana, but I expect the answer from Junoon007, after 2 appeals.

Hey,

seems like a issue with the touchpad - would most likely have to be replaced if its indeed the problem. A firmware update might be available have you tried that? Its unlikely to solve the problem if its a hardware issue but if its a bug in the software it might just fix it.

Thanks,
Ekse

Due to heavy charging the device is facing this problem .you just keep your unit in OFF MODE FOR MORE THEN 24 HOURS WITHOUT BATTERY IT WILL AUTOMATICALLY RESET THE DEVICE.

Touchpad won't work on my Gigabeat F40


Mine did the same, touch pad became erratic then stopped working, I could still access everything when linked to a computer. Then all stopped, on power up I got a 00000010 or 0000020 error and nothing.

I popped the end caps off, removed the two small screws holding the back on and found the strap of wires connecting the hard drive was almost completely dissconnected. Pushed the connector back together , reassembled and now all working

Battery is dead


Identical problem - working only with power cord.
Wont power on battery or usb cable.

I actually opened player and check every single option.
(I am experienced electronic - tech.)
Result: battery is fully charged (768 mA/ 3.97V on bench)
Battery switch on bottom fully functional. (switching on/off 3.97V
comming from battery)
USB supply 5.0 V in perfect order.
Conclusion:
There is no "EASY" fix for this problem.
It is either problem with firmware (low possibility)
or semiconductor on logic board (practically not fixable on DIY basis)

I bought my Gigabeat 60Gb for $ 70.00 used on Ebay so
I will live with this problem.

Doesn't work without cord! Battery switch is not responding at all.


There's a "hidden" switch on the lower part that makes it not use the battery. You can switch it with a pencil or pen.

Toshiba gigabeat MES60VK (60 GB) stopped working


There is a little battery cut of switch at the bottom of the device. You can unbend a paper clip and switch it off. Then switch it back on after a few seconds. Plug it back into the usb cable to charge it. It should work ok now.
