Question about Oakley Thump 2 MP3 Player

Connection not recognized

I connected my thump pro to the computer so that it would charge but it does not seem to recognize that a connection has occured. There is not light - red or otherwise - nothing seems to be happening.

    Like miata148, I often have difficulty getting my Thump Pros to connect with my computer. Usually, this occurs when the battery is very low (to the point of turning itself off). I've left them connected overnight, but no light, no connection, etc. The only way I've been able to recover is to allow the battery time to recover enough to turn on, then quickly connect to the PC. Any thoughts?

The led should come on even without a battery installed, its either sweat damage to the USB connector, micro fuse, corrupt firmware or logig/flash ic sweat damage. Try using a standard mains USB charger and see if the led comes on, The glasses have two charging circuits, not sure if it was design flaw but when connected to a computer USB it will charge using the + & - data lines instead of the + & - power line.

I have often had the same problem. Resetting the software enabled me to recover. Press and Hold the Play/Pause (center) button and the Previous Song/Rewind (rear) button•at the same time. I held it for about 5 seconds. Then I released both buttons, then pressed the Play/Pause for about 1-2 seconds, the unit powered up and I was able to connect and charge the unit.

• If the reset procedure does not work, you may need to restore the internal software.See your .pdf users guide, this will erase your song list.

Good luck.

Try to reset it if possible.
If the computer charges it then the computer recognizes it as a connected device. That's how usb works. It could be you need a new USB cable. Many devices that use USB for charging do not have the data leads connected in their cables. This is called a "vampire" connection as it only sucks 5 volts DC from the computer/charger .

My ipod not recognized by itunes in order to reinstall the software


Connections b> The USB cable must be securely connected both to the iPod and to the selected USB port on the computer. Reattach the cable at both ends, and click "Computer" in the start menu to see if the iPod is shown connected to the drive for that USB port. b> Drivers b> If the drivers of the computer responsible for the USB interface are out of date, malfunctioning or incorrectly installed, that may also cause the iPod to not be recognized by the computer. If this is the case, the device may not appear in iTunes and there may be an exclamation point next to the device in Device Manager. b> Software b> The latest version of iTunes is recommended to best communicate with the various models of iPod. Go to the iTunes website or click "Help" and "Check for Updates" in iTunes to install the most recent update. Further, the computer must be running Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 for PCs, or OS X v.10.4.11 or later for Macs. b> Battery b> The iPod's battery must have sufficient charge to be recognized in iTunes; charge it either via USB connection or another power source if the indicator shows a low battery. Once the battery has charged, try to connect the iPod to the computer via USB cable again.

My sony nwz-s638f is not charging if i put it in the plug how can i make it work?


Hi,

Please make sure that the Computer is recognizing the Walkman when connected to the USB port.

Make sure that you're using the supplied USB cable for connecting to the Computer.

If you use the portable player for the first time, if you have not used it for a long time, or the battery is depleted, it may take up to 5 minutes for it to be recognized or start charging. On models with a display, the display will remain blank. If it the portable player is not recognized or does not begin to charge after waiting 5 minutes, reset the player by pressing the reset button.

Disconnect the USB cable from the portable player and then reconnect.

Check the connection status again.

Disconnect the USB cable from the computer and then reconnect.

Check the connection status again.

Check for available space on the player using Windows Media Player or My Computer.

Restart the computer.

Check the connection status again.

Check that the USB cable is firmly connected to both the computer and the player.

Check the connection status again.

If the player is connected to a USB hub, disconnect it and connect it directly to the computer with a dedicated USB cable.

Check the connection status again.

If the player is still not recognized by the computer, disconnect all devices connected to the computer with a USB connection and restart the computer.

After the computer restarts, connect only the Walkman player and test the connection again.

If the player is still not charged by the computer, try a different USB port.

Thanks for using FixYa.
