Try disconnecting the negative ground (-) cable from the battery. That will disconnect power to everything including your radio. It might reset it self when you restore power by reconnect the negative ground cable to the battery.

I just bought and recieved this Oakley Thump Pro. I tried it out for 2 songs, all was cool. Then I pluged it to the PC, it blinked green. Added 1 more song, and tried turning it off, on, and back off again...

Make sure they're fulling charged up (at least 3 hours), then if they still won't start up reset them: press the play and rewind buttons at the same time then release. Those are the middle and aft/backbuttons on the right temple. Try starting them up again (hold the play button until you get the Thump-Thump sound). If none of that works, call their customer support line ... they're still under warranty.

Freeze ipod

Had the same problem at the weekend there, and my friend told me to hold the menu button and the centre button down at the same time for around 10-15secs, and this will reboot the ipod. Hope this helps you also :)

After a while of listening to songs my mp3 player freezes up.

Triple Reset for Philips’ GoGear:

Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns off. Hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.

After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.

I also had the same problem with my ipod nano..

Do this and i assure you, it will work..

1. Hold the MENU button and then the middle button down(in that order) together for about 10 seconds..

2. This should re-boot your ipod..

3. Wait for your ipod to start..

4. Problem fixed. It plays..

The songs that are skipping are most likely corrupt or have been encoded incorrectly.

Delete them and that should solve it.

Best of Luck.
