    when I plug it into the USB and computer it does the same thing, keeps refreshing, and it doesn't look as if it is charging, it just says connecting. I thought the first time I charged it, it actually said it was charging but I'm not certain because I've only had it two days.

    Out of the box, my e260 has low battery, so I try to charge it and it alternates between "writing", then "refresh database." Any suggestions would be aprreciated.

    Not only does it keep refreshing all the time, even in the middle of a song sometimes, it is also repeating all my songs.

    Repeat is not switched on.

From Stollydog - I had put in an SanDisk 8GB as I have heaps of CD's. I removed this and then went back to factory settings. I reloaded my music from the computer and now it thankfully has stopped refreshing and repeating songs. My partner has an identical SanDisk with an 8GB card extra in it but isn't causing this problem. Maybe this can help at least solve some of the problem though my 4GB is just about full now.

I cannot seem to cancel an old job stuck in there. I have hit cancel, powered off and on, unplugged. Everytime I try to print a new job it puts out this old one.

moz-screenshot.pngThe best thing to do is do a memory reset. But this could also clear pages and formats, user defined characters and fonts, configurations,tables,or all of these parameters.

To reset memory
1.Turn off the printer.
2. Set the DIP switches to reset a portion.
3. Press and hold the Feed/Pause button while turning on the printer. The printer prints out a hardware configuration test label.
4. Hold the Feed/Pause button for 1 second. The printer resets a portion or all of its memory.
5. To exit test and Service mode, turn off the printer.
6. Reset the DIP switches to their original setting and then turn on the printer.

That should do the trick.

Recognition by computer

It seems that the storage portion of your MP3 player is already corrupted. If the device is still under the warranty, take advantage of it and contact the manufacturer for memory card replacement.

The memory card (storage) should be replaced and NOT reformat. There could be bad sectors and it cannot be fixed by reformatting only.

Have a great day!

Janome MC 10001 auto. needle threader stuck in up position.

You are threading the top of the machine incorrectly.

Make sure the needle is in correctly with the flat side to the rear of the machine, make sure to thread the upper and lower portions of the machine correctly. If this does not solve your problem, please respond.
