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?

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.
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..
this player seems to have a hardware issue mine has done the same thing sorry to say that you'll lose all your data on the device with this solution but it should get the mp3 player working again, while holding the volume up button connect the device and let the program do the recovery mode on the device and it should fix the error for a while i had this once fixed it and havent had it since,
well done XP! device repaired :) I'm so happy I didn't sell my travel notebook, good enough for running XP slowly... very slowly. I will left more space now than last time. Why I didn't thought that some kilobytes aren't enough for operating.
Try these steps:
SOLUTION 1 - Reset the device. 1. Press and hold the Power/Menu button for approximately 20 seconds. 2. Release the Power/Menu button. 3. Press the Power/Menu button again to turn on the player.
SOLUTION 2 - Power cycle the device.
STEP 1 - Remove the battery
STEP 2 - Power cycle the player 1. Connect the device to the PC. 2. Leave the device connected for about 2 minutes.
STEP 3 - Turn on the device 1. Disconnect the player from the PC. 2. Insert a fresh AAA battery into the player. 3. Turn on the player.
one way to check if it's connecting right is too go to device manager.
1.right click my computer
3.click hardware tab
4.click device manager button
5.expand universal serial bus controllers list
6.look for your device name when it's plugged in
7.if their is a yellow exclamation point by it then it's not connecting correctly.
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
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:
Right-click on the "My Computer" icon, then select "Manage". This will open the "Computer Management" window.
Left-click on "Device Manager"
If your player is currently in MTP mode, then try this:
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 "?"
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:
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 "?"
Right-click on the "Mass Storage" and select "Scan for hardware changes" or "uninstall". Both would have the same effect
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.
