SOURCE: dell dj firmware

I had the same problem and it turns out the firmware did get loaded, the program just didn't close out properly. If you go to Settings & Info-->Information on your DJ you should see that it is the updated version.

SOURCE: Dell DJ Gen 2 Won't connect

if your Dell DJ player is no longer recognized by the upgrade firmware even with the correct, original device driver installed, then you will need to install a windows 'MTP' driver by doing the following. Note that this applies to Windows XP only.

1. make sure you have the SP2 XP upgrade.

2. Install Windows Media Player 10 or roll it back to version 10 if you are using a later version. You can roll it back by going to 'Add or Remove programs' and uninstalling any WMP upgrade from the 'Change or Remove Programs' dialog window. Note: don't uninstall WMP enitrely from the 'Add/remove windows components' dialog.

3. Go get this file: fixup.zip Unzip it in a temporary directory and run the fixup.cmd by double-clicking in explorer or using the windows 'Run' command. Follow the instructions it prints in its DOS window about deleting the Dell device in the hardware manager.

4. plug your DJ player into the USB port. XP should now say 'Found MTP device' or something similar.

5. Get the Dell DJ 1.02 firmware from their support site appropriate for your player. Run the firmware upgrade. The software should detect your player this time.

A good reference for the Dell DJ stuff is here: gotzune.com

Note: I can't personally recommend the 'PlayForSure' firmware as I have not been successful upgrading to it. WMP 11 does not seem to work with the Dell DJ but WMP10 does and the device Sync function works just fine.

For almost ALL of the MP3 players out there that seem bricked due to a firmware upgrade failure or some other reason, they can be usually restored in a simlar way by installing a basic 'MTP' driver which allows windows to at least send a file to it, and by putting the player into a recovery mode as defined by the manufacturer.

SOURCE: how do I install my dell dj gen 2 on windows 7 ?

You must first install the driver, don't plug in the jukebox until you rdone with this, then install the dj explorer v2 and then connect your DJ. I really have had no problems whatsoever except I had to use virtual XP to mess with my playlist. email me if you have any problems.

Appears that the 3.5MM input jack (for my ipod) is loose/broken. How to replace it?


to do that you'd actually have to disassemble the unit. ( start by removeing scews on the bottom ) and dropping out the pc boards that hold the jack or are in the way of the pcb with the jack on it. at which you'd just have to un-solder old jack and install replacement and reassemble and your done. you cann call american audio to find distributers of their parts.

The earphone jack seems to be loose, sometimes cutting out one side, sometimes both. I tried several sets and it points to the jack being loose, not the earphones. Is there a way I can open the case to...


The two rubber dimples on the other end of the back side of the unit can be removed to expose a pair of screws.
At that point the cover can be removed., Pushing in on the sides of the case will help the side and top catches release.

Once onside you can see 2 more screws on the top (head phone jack) end that will allow the board to come up.

But at that point you better be good with SMT. The headphone jack is fed by feed throughs to pads that are likely ripped off.

Have Fun :-)

Hello,

To disassemble the phone, you need to get he appropriate screwdrivers and follow the processes below;

  1. Turn your phone over so the battery cover is facing you. Remove the battery cover and battery. Next remove the 2 rubber stoppers and unscrew the aerial.
  2. Remove the screws,
  3. Next remove the 2 rubber stoppers & screws above the main screen,
  4. Prise the back part away from the rest of the phone by running your fingernail between where the two parts meet,
  5. Unclip the ribbon,
  6. After removing the ribbon cable, carefully lift the metal part. Another ribbon will be attached which should be carefully removed. Take the circuit board & keypad out and you'll be left with just the screen and the keypad rack.
  7. On the circuit board, you'll see the charging port and the broken charger that is in it.
  8. Try to pick it out with a pincher, and if you cannot, then you have to replace the charging port.
  9. Disconnect the charging port and replace it with a new one.
  10. Reverse the process to reassemble the phone back together.

  11. Take care.

Only one earphone works, weird problem


there is a broken solder joint where it is on the pc board.it is not the earbud itself,because when you pull it out,both sides work.the jack has 3 sections,the tip which is one side,the next piece,which is the other side,and the shank piece which is the ground.the ground connects to the outside ring of the headphone jack.there are 2 contact points inside for the two channels.what happens is the copper foil of the pc board fractures where the pins are soldered.scrape away some of the foil so that copper is exposed for the pins,and resolder it and it will work if you wiggle the jack,you will see the whole piece of circuit board move where it is cracked.after fixing it,put epoxy over the area to make it stronger.

IPod Not Working


Hi,

Does your iPod come on? If not, your battery could be bad.

If you can see the music playing, but cannot hear anything, you could have a bad earphone jack or a bad circuit board.

You can tell if it is the battery the iPod will not come on at all unless it is attached to the computer or to a power outlet.

If you can move the earphone jack around while playing music and hear something, then it is the headphone jack. If you move the jack around and hear nothing, then I would suspect the circuit board.

If you have a device that can play your music out of the USB port on the iPod, you can make sure that it is the circuit board that way. When the circuit board is bad, music will not play out of the headphone jack or the USB port.
Hope that helps.

The earplug/headset input on my Garmin Nuvi 660 is broken.


Interesting problem but I have repaired this problem before. This is not going to be something you can fix yourself.....believe me... I have 30 years of experience in Electronics.

The headphone jack either has to be resoldered or replaced. When its loose, in most cases the pins of the jack are broken and/or the printed circuit board tracks have been torn off the board. The jack is a surface mount part.

A new jack must be installed but there is no way to solder in a new jack because the printed circuit board tracks are gone. The new jack must be installed with epoxy to the board and new wires have to be soldered from the printed circuit board to the jack.

There's around 2 hrs worth of work involved in this repair.
