Re: buttons

This isnt a solution but an additional request for help since I dont think it takes much to "break the touchpad" I stored mine in my purse for a while the purse was full to a level of "cozy" but not cramped and my touchpad also stopped working properly!!!
According to creative, changing the sensitivity is supposed to help (how the heck is this supposed to help when you cant get to the menu option??), they also said reformat (i tried 3times it didnt work), and the other thing ive seen is people say take it apart and clean it, i have not been this ballsy as of yet but may try. one other thing is some one said this maybe temperature related that if its too cold it may not work properly. (didnt work for me either).

Dropped ipod in water. Got it to come on and all the buttons work except the top right hand button that takes you back to the main menu. What can I do to get the button to work, I have tried canned air but...

If this just happened, stop using it right away and wait at least 48 hours. Then try again. You might find that it magically works.

Don't use canned air too much, as it can create new condensation under the button's contacts.

Transcend not working


You can see a Reset button on the right side of the player.
That's a small button between play button and the lock button
Press that, now the player will shut down
Now switch on the player and try again. Now you will be able to record/scroll

If this doesn't help out, send to service center.

No video types are working on my Samsung S3 mp3 player, ive tryed .SIV .MP4 .WMV .M4V almost everything. ive tryed 2 different video converters, but nothing works.

Open up Samsung Media Studio and on the left hand side, you should see a table. Connect the S3 via USB to the computer. Above the table on the left hand side, you should see 4 icons. Press the one that looks like a reel of film. Then drag and drop your video clip you want to put on (note: If you can not open it in Windows Media Player you can't encode it for use on the S3. Use SUPER from erightsoft to convert if you can not open it in Media Player). There should be a button down the bottom right to start the encoding. The encoding process is slow, but it should work.

Archos 704 stopped working


A couple of things you can try:
  1. hard reset the 704 using the button under the battery right hand side;
  2. reformat the unit (but that would of course delete contents).
Just curious, did you try/did a firmware update recently? Additionally, the manual has some details on troubleshooting as well as Archos online support.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Touch pad will only scroll down, not up!

when my zen buttons stopped working all i did was just tap (not to soft or to hard) it on the side of my desk on the side of the zen on the volume side.

i think the problem is when people are dropping them its moving bits inside.

Continuous scrolling menu

copy and paste the following link into your web browser address bar, and then click Go or hit your Enter key. When prompted, choose the option to Save the file to your Desktop.

Once you have downloaded the file, please follow these instructions.

1) Double click on My Computer so that you can see it on your screen.

2) Turn the player off.

3) On the top of the player is a Hold switch, move it to the right (toward the headphone jack) so you see Orange.

4) On the left hand side of the player is a Record button, press and hold it while connecting the player to the computer. Continue holding the Record button until you see a new icon under My Computer called 16MB FORMAT. Once you see that icon you may release the Record button.

5) Double click the file you downloaded earlier and run it. Follow all of the on-screen instructions, and when you get to the prompt where it asks you whether you would like to Format it, choose Yes. Once it is done, click Finish.

6) Disconnect the player and look at the screen. Several things will be displayed, and when you see Key Lock, System Shutdown, move the Hold switch on the top back to the left.

7) Turn the player on and watch the screen. If you see a Refresh Database Fail error, you will need to follow steps 1-7 again until you do not get the error. If it does not work the first time, it could take up to 3 times for it to work.

Touch pad issues

Next time you try scrolling on the touch pad, also push down (really) hard on the touch pad(kind of like you're squeezing the player). Keep doing this, and you may get it working. I've dropped mine a few times, and this push/squeeze/scroll seemed to work.

Creative Zen Xtra hard disk problem


32. I bought one of these and used it on and of for 4 months. One day I got a "harddisk problem" and tried everything. Because I purchased in the US, Creative said that it was out of warranty but they would fix for £100. I looked around the web and found a thread that shows how to fix it. The solution, and this is a bit technical, is - seriously - to hit it on the right hand side very firmly on the right hand side with your hand whilst switching it on. It re-indexed and I've never had a problem since.
