*always make sure your grounded when working with electronics

you can carefully pop the casing at where the usb port connects to the case. carefully take out the pcb and look where the play button is, if you inspect the button, one of the prongs on the very end may be broken.. (mine looks like an S with the button in the middle).
i super glued mine on the ends where the button connects to the case and it works just great now.

If you mean the push button got push down into the case then youll have to probably replace the case as these buttons are most of the time attached right to the outer housing and are not available by them selfs. if you wanna take a chance then open the unit and take out the pcb chassis and see if you can push back the s,mmall button but its something I would not recommend as there are lots of problems you can cause if you dont know the right procedture on disassembly.

The dryer keeps shutting down the code E68 flashes on the control board dryer won't shut off, have to turn the breaker off

E68 is a stuck button on the control.

Take a very hot damp wash cloth and go over the control panel to loosen up the sticky button.
If you are storing detergents on top of machine remove them to prevent sticky buttons.

How do i skip to the next cong quickly

According to the manual, which can be found online here:, once you start a song using the Play button, you can immediately press the Next button to skip to the next song. It appears that the next button is the right button on the control pad.
Here is the layout of the control pad, from what I can determine online: Play/Pause Previous Next Volume

Problem with MP3 player-Stops after one song

On closer look (after my long road trip to test this out), I realize when you hit Browse, there's a button on the bottom titled Play All. If you select this button, the buttons mentioned above work as intended, and the Forward, Backward buttons bring you to the next or previous songs in the list.

Well, you can press the button you use to change songs. If you press it, you get options. Move the mode button and find play settings and you will find normal mode. Press the mode button and you will solve the problem.

Music will not play, just cycles through songs without playing

I just had the same problem with my 2GB silver nano. I had to restore the factory settings through iTunes and reload all of my music. There was also an update for the nano that I downloaded yesterday (Jan. 29, 2006) and installed when I restored the factory settings. My nano appears to be running fine for the moment,but we'll see if this actually took care of the problem.
