Re: MP3 Locked...

The lock is a small silver slide switch located on the side of the unit labelled as "HOLD". Slide that back to the right.

How to unlock mp3 series 2008

Sansa MP3 music players, made by SanDisk, are capable of playing files stored in the MP3 file format. One of the features on a Sansa MP3 player is that the screen is lockable. This prevents you from accidentally closing out a music file while listening to it. You can unlock your Sansa by pushing a switch.

Turn the Sansa on.

Locate the "Power" switch. It is on the left side of the Sansa and has an icon of a bar going through a circle. Push it down to put it into the "Locked" position.

Push the "Power" switch up to put the Sansa in the "Unlocked" position.

Hope it helped.

My Opal RCA MP4 player will not play. it keeps

Assuming the lock key on the back of the player is in the unlocked position, it sounds like there is a corrupt firmware file. This should just need a firmware reinstall.

Download the firmware install from the RCA website:
Follow the on-screen instructions to perform the install.
Be sure to back up any important media before performing this install.

If your computer does not recognize it, press and hold the play button while connecting the device for upwards of 30 seconds.

Samsung MP3 Model YP-K3J QR

I went back to my Napster account and downloaded the music to a cd. I then downloaded the cd to my Samsung Media player and deleted the locked music. Now everything plays. I also discovered that some of my own CDs had locked when I transferred the music to my new computer so I just reloaded them on my computer and deleted the locked cds.

Thanks for checking.

Slick mp3 player

When you try to play it the screen should say locked. Push the bottom button that says hold and the screen should say unlocked. Hope that helps. I just bought the same MP3 player and am liking it so far.
