Won't sync to itunes


Hi Sheri

There are several possible reasons;

Is the cable in good condition? If it is somehow damaged / broken, replace it and try it again.

Does the USB port work? Test it with another device

Does iTunes work with other devices? If not, reinstall iTunes and try it again.

Does the iPod charge? If not, cable and / or port @ iPod might be broken: solution depends on problem.

If it is not about any of the issues described above, pls let me know.

Craig wireless portable speaker cma3561 won't charge battery


Batteries are holding back the 21st century. I have the older model of this and my battery went bad very fast. Now I have to keep it plugged in and not just any usb port will work it has to be a usb power supply of at least 2 amps. I keep mine in a 2100mA usb source.

Yes, they only last two to three years.

A search of eBay, a place i look to check availability gives a number available.
Search "Samsung YP-Z5 battery"

If you are able to open up the case You could cut off the existing battery leads close to the battery and join the two wires. Soldering is preferred if you have an insulated tip soldering iron.
Otherwise twisting the wires together is probably good enough.
Tape the joins to strengthen and insulate them.

I purchased this mp3 on 11th devmber. the music is not getting through to the headphones - can you help? is it powered by a battery & is one included as standard?


Hi mharrington9,

You may want to post the make and model of your mp3 player. Someone may have solved the same problem with the same player, and would then be able to give you a more specific answer than this one;

I assume you have replaced or re-charged the battery first, and that full power to your player did not help. If so, it is likely to be a problem with the headphones, the headphone receptacle, or the amplifier inside the mp3 player;

1) Headphone problem?
Get a different set of ear-bud headphones, and try them out. If the alternative set works but your headphones do not work, it's the headphones.

1a) Large headphones, small player?
If your headphones are large, but the power of your MP3 player is small, the player may not have enough power to drive the headphone speakers. If you run your MP3 player through an additional amplifier, you may then have enough power to get sound out of your headphones.

1b) Broken wire in ear bud jack?
Most of my broken ear-bud sets have failed because one or more of the wires has broken, usually at the plug-end. There are 3 thin wires; If you break the left-channel or right-channel wire, only one earbud goes out. If you break the ground wire, both earbuds stop working, or you may hear a very faint sound at full volume. If you like to solder things, it is possible to get a new plug, cut off the old one, and solder in a new one. But it may be easier to get a new set of earbuds.

2) Broken Receptacle?

Plug your ear-buds into a different, working MP3 player. If the ear-buds work, then
Plug your MP3 into a computer through the data cable, and try to play something through the computer.
If the MP3 works through the data cable, something is wrong with the receptacle for your ear-bud plug.
You may be able to get your MP3 player replaced under warranty, since the purchase was recent. Or, if no warranty and you feel adventurous, take the back off and try to re-solder or replace the receptacle-- Though this usually ends in irreparable damage to the MP3 player :-\

3) Broken MP3 player?
If you can't get any music to play through the data cable or the computer, something is seriously wrong with the guts of the MP3 player. Try for a warranty replacement if you can.

Best of luck, mharrington9

AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Try another pair of headphones first to determine if the trouble is the phones or in the player. The wires in the headphone cable are very thin, and flexing at the plug often makes them break inside.

If the problem is in the player, it's usually due to solder connections breaking where the jack joins the circuit board. These connections might be repairable. If you can open the player in the first place (the case on many brands is either glued together or the halves are held together with plastic tabs that are nearly impossible to open without breaking the case), and if the jack has a style of solder tab you can reach with a normal iron (many use a type that requires special soldering equipment), you might be able to resolder the connections. These things were never intended to be repaired, even by the manufacturers. Under warranty they just replace the unit at their expense. Out of warranty, you do.

You might have too much power in use from the USB ports on your machine: Try unplugging some USB devices you do not need, and trying again.

I have this issue with several devices I own: not really with my zune, but I never charge it with the PC: I use the AC power adapter, which I STRONGLY recommend any zune owner purchasing.

My Mp3 player cant charge


No - I know you may rate me poorly for this. But there is definitely not a wireless charger for this - i'm not guessing - it's a fact.

Headphone port broken?


most of the time you can just solder the headphone jack back on if you have a good soldering iron and skill to do so otherwise you have to send it in

Headphone jack issues


Although headphones jacks are convient. They are very delicate as well. It take very little pressure agaist the jack when plugged in to bend the pins inside the jack that makes the connection. Then they get temermental. Generally the only recourse is to replace the headphonejack in the unit. better left to the techs. replacing can be tricky. But just to make sure you say you have tried other units. Here is something that works once in a great while. Unplug the unit dip the headphone jack {the tip on the headphones} in rubbing alchol insert it in the jack on the unit and spin it repeat several times let alchol evaporate then stick jack back in unit an spin again. Plug unit back in and see if it is better or the same.

My suggestion is that there is a loose connection in the headphones and that is why it will only work when it's in a certain direction. That would be the soloution if it was just that one pair of headphones. If lots of pairs of headphones don't work. then it might be that one of the metal plates in the headphone port is broken or damaged. If this is so it might be worth taking it to your local electrician.
