Re: permanent pause

It might be that the memory chip is fryed and it thinks that you are hitting the pause button, or eather it is that something is caught in the pause button. Take it a part or find something that will fit in between the pause button and clean it.

Does the Eclipse Fit Clip Plus have resume play functions?

I have just discovered that if you pause the player and then let it shut off on its own then press pause again later to wake up the unit and again it will pick up where you were. Now, I don't know if it uses any battery life when it's sleeping so will just have to experiment there. But the key here seems to be NOT actually turning it off. Turning it off will reset it to song #1 every single time. Which is really obnoxious.

My sansa clip won't play the songs I loaded on!

I've had this happen a couple of times in the last 6 months. You can get it to play again by chosing the format option from the settings menu. Of course, then you've lost everything you had loaded on to it. Download your music/audio books again and they will play.

Radio won't play

1) Go into the settings menu, go to FM settings, and make sure the FM Region is set for United States. If you are outside the US, change it to "World"
2) The radio might initially be set for Pause - to test this, turn to a specific radio station that you know you get, and press up on the clickwheel. The "block" icon underneath the radio station should now change to a play arrow, if indeed it was on pause.

Pause function for RCA Lyra RD1072A.

This player does not have the true pause you are looking for. The iPod Nano - 2nd generation - has a true pause - once you hit pause it will stay paused and even go to sleep. When you revive the player it will leave off where you left it.

SONY NWD-B105 it says BOOT ERROR and it shut down

Hey,FRIEND!! I actually found out a solution regarding on the problem by myself,accidentally, lol. As you guys mentioned, everytime you try to play a song, the device automatically turned off itself. Now, i'll tell the trick behind. You may simply hold the "Play/Pause" button and don't let it go. At the mean time,try to select song by pressing "Next/Previous" button. The moment you select song, you let go the "Play/Pause" and hold it on again within a million second (that's mean you need to do it damn fast). Right now, you're listening your favourite song,but you can't just let your thumb keep pressing the "Play/Pause" button,right? Here is the "HOLD" button comes to work, you flip the "HOLD" button to activate it. TADA! You can let go your thumb and relax yourself with the songs playing. The battery will eventually dies out,nevermind though, you always can recharge it. Repeating these steps everytime you want to listen songs, my mp3 actually fixed on its own. I admit that it's still not the best solution it appears to be,but you guys should really try it out, you're not just going to give up your mp3 like that,agree? haha, all the best and good luck!

Sounds like the files are DRM copy protected.

You can check for protected tracks.
  • In Windows Explorer, go to the folder where the tracks are stored on your PC.
  • Click on View -----> Details
  • Right click on the header bar in the right hand window and select protected. (If protected is not listed click on More)
  • Tracks will be listed with No or Yes under "protected". Check your non-playing tracks are listed as No, under "protected".
The HDD1830 is not compatible with protected files, although your PC will play them ok.

Audiobook download

Playing Songs, Audiobooks, and Podcasts on iPod shuffle iPod shuffle allows you to play your audio files in a couple different ways—you can play songs, audiobooks, and podcasts in the order in which they appear on your player, or let iPod shuffle work its namesake magic for you (that is, shuffle the files by playing them randomly).
Show Me How
If you want iPod shuffle to play audio files in the order in which they appear on the player, move the switch on the top of the iPod shuffle to the play in order (circular arrows) position. If you want iPod shuffle to play songs in random order, move the switch to the shuffle (crossed arrows) position.
ip02_playfnky_04_shuflebutton.gif This iPod Shuffle is set to shuffle.
To play music, an audiobook, or podcast, just press the Play/Pause button. To skip to the next song (or a different song if you're in shuffle mode, or a different chapter if you're listening to an audiobook or podcast), press the Next/Fast-forward button. To fast-forward through the audio, hold down the Next/Fast-forward button. To go back to the beginning of a song (or the previous chapter), press the Previous/Rewind button; press this button twice to go to the previous song or hold it down to rewind through the file.
To stop play, press the Play/Pause button during play. To turn off iPod shuffle, move the switch to the Off position (you shouldn't see green beneath the switch).
