MP3 player/s no sound or control of device

Hi. i have had this player for a while. For some reason, every time i turn the thing on, it says error 2 (ERR 2 as stated on the device display) on the screen instead of MEM 16, like usual, when the track starts, there is no sound. i can not control the sound volume level, nor can i use any of the functions of the player (like changing the track, using the mode and tone buttons or the stop button). what happened and how can i fix it so i can enjoy this player?

Every 4 weeks my mp3 player gives me a message saying " File System Error". It doesn't go away for at least 2 months. How do I fix this problem?

Hi There

I can understand your issue. This issue might occur due to two reasons,
1) May be the songs which you have might now supported or corrupted
2) If this is happen for all songs, then its problem with MP3 player itself.

If its first reason, then try deleting the song and play it
If its second reason, then please format the device.

Please revert if any clarifications.

My mp3 keeps saying file system error when i turn it on.

Hi There.

I can understand the issue.
When you say getting file system error while you turn on the device, Possible cause would be device was not formatted properly or may be you would have unplugged the device in improper way (i.e) SAFELY REMOVE HARDWARE.

Do one thing. Please connect the device to the computer and check whether do u see green color arrow on the system tray.
If u see the arrow mark, right click on the icon and choose the option properties.
Then update the MTP drivers..Then try turning ON the device..
If still you face the same issue kindly revert..

Help please

You must run a repair using the Philips Device Manager that came with the CD. After you have done that, you must run the "update" with the Philips Device Manager.
Repair=1 time fix
Update=permanent fix

Well, this is a rare problem however I believe it isn't working due to a system error on the mp3.

Synching problems....someone please help

Hi Nikki. Seems like the Operating System (is it Windows XP?) may have encountered errors loading the native drivers for your player when in MTP mode, or the Windows Media Player version on the PC your plugging your player in is Windows 9 or below. The minimum requirements of the M240 is Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Windows Media Player 10 or above. Falling short of this minimum requirement may cause your player not to be properly recognized. But assuming that the PC you're using the player with meets all the requirements, try to re-load the native driver by plugging your player to the PC and doing the following: Step 1: Right-click on the "My Computer" icon, then select "Manage". This will open the "Computer Management" window. Step 2: Left-click on "Device Manager" If your player is currently in MTP mode, then try this: (1) Left-click in "Windows Portable Device". You should find your M240 indicated there. Check for an error indicator on the left side of that icon. The error indicator would be yellow-colored icons displayed as "!" or "?" (2): Right-click on the M240 and select "Scan for hardware changes" or "uninstall". Both would have the same effect If your player is currently in MSC mode, then try this: (1): Left-click in "Universal Serial Bus Controller". You should find a "Mass Storage Device" there (make sure that the M240 is the only device plugged in to your PC at this time). Check for an error indicator on the left side of that icon. The error indicator would be yellow-colored icons displayed as "!" or "?" (2): Right-click on the "Mass Storage" and select "Scan for hardware changes" or "uninstall". Both would have the same effect Step 3: Unplug your M240 and plug it back in. This would force Windows to re-load the driver. 90-99% of the time, it would re-load the native drivers correctly. I hope this works.
