How to unfreeze mp3 player

Hi, I have a failry new mp3/mp4 player, I've had it working fine for months, even had it playing three days ago. I went to turn it on yesterday and instead of coming up with the 'hello' screen, it went straight to a blank screen with a egg timer on it, then it doesn't move from this screen. Can you please give me suggestions as to how to fix it? There's no reset button, only a on/off switch not button. I've tried pressing either the menu of play button for a while but that doesn't change anything. Thanks, Heather i got mine from walmart. any who mine won't go off the loading screen

SOURCE: cant change channels

Your in the video mode so you have to change the input. On the original remote, its the button left of the power button. A universal may not work for this. If you need the original remote, Its available at http://www.remotes.com Good Luck

SOURCE: Starts up but turns onto standby straight away

There could be a problem with the flip down iris protector. If the Sanyo is on and you flip the protector down manually then the projector will go into standby mode. This is obviously to protect the system incase it ever gets flipped down accidently and the system is on. There could be a faulty switcher inside the protector mechanism which is not working properly and the machine thinks that the screen is down when in fact it is open!

Switch off the entire projector at the mains and open and close the screen a few time manually. If you feel comfortable doing so try and force the screen up a little bit past its stopping point when it is supposed to be fully open. Be careful and don't break it. Now keeping it open plug it back in a see if that works and don't touch the protector ever again! If it doesn't try opening and closing a few more times to try and release the triggering button that is inside the projector screen.

I had the same problem and that worked for me.

Just fixed ours with the same problem. You need to hit the volume buttons on the remote during the time the screen goes black but BEFORE it gives you the "Connect cables" message.It should trick the TV into giving you a blank channel.

Sanyo TVs are made notoriously cheap, and have little glitches like this. Best of luck, space cowboy.

I have no problem playing the Xacti HD2 files. I guess this is because I have the codecs installed in my computer.

I recommend the Combined Community Codec Pack which I don't really understand but if you download and install it in your computer it allows you to play most video file types.

The HD2 mp4 files are pretty bog-standard MPEG-4 files, and very different from the newer Xacti HD1000/1010 files. The HD1000/1010 uses the new "h.264" super-duper compresion format (all the rage in many cameras now) that requires a lot of processor power to decode.

You often seem to need a fast dual/quad pentium to play the files, without the sound lagging for instance.

While the quality is considerably better, the old Xacti HD1/HD2 is often sufficient for things like Youtube or even Vimeo (strangely, unless you upload in HD to Youtube the quality is not good).

I hear that the (HD1000/1010's) h.264 format is the future, but until all your computers are very fast, and afaik most laptops currently on sale in 2009 do not have the power, it is a risky way to go.

I enjoy my Xacti HD2 and I hear that the Xacti HD1 is only a little worse, in lower light. For the next three years, till 2012, I think that they are great for Youtube vlogging in daylight situations. Added to that, the the Xacti HD1 and 2 (like the HD1000) have a microphone input which is a must for anywhere outside of your room.

SOURCE: Sanyo DP42746 - Screen went black and no sound. Power light on.

The TV is on protect mode.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.

If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.


If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

check to see if your files are MP4, vs MP3. MP4 files won't play in this player, so you'd have to convert them to mp3.

To reset your iPod:
  • 1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  • 2. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
you can also try restoreing it


Restore
  • Note: Because Restore erases all of the songs and files on iPod, make sure to back up any files you've saved on the iPod disk. All of your songs, videos, podcasts, audiobooks, and games can be loaded back to your iPod provided that you have them stored in your itunes Library.
How to restore your iPod:
For Windows:
  • 1. Make sure you've reinstalled the latest version of itunes.
  • 2. Open itunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer.
  • 3. After a few moments, it will appear in the source list in itunes.
  • 4. Select your iPod in the source list and you will see information about it appear in the Summary tab of the main itunes windows.
  • 5. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt itunes to automatically download of the latest iPod Software. The 4 possible restore options are:
    • Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.
    • Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available.
    • Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.
    • Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.
  • 6. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started. When this stage is completed, itunes will instruct you to leave iPod connected to your computer to complete restore.
  • 7. During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage. Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.
  • 8. After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the itunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.

if the problem isn't solved.. check your warranty at

It sounds like the MP3 player you got is defective. Its warranty should still be in effect, so I would recommend exchanging it for a replacement.

We have a toshiba gigabeat f20. today it worked fine, listened to it for hoursbefore turning it off. turned it on within a hour to play it and got a blank screen. nothing in the environment could have caused this. battery had been replaced a week before. so, took the case off to opened it and take a look. realized that one of the plug ins for the screen had come loose or slightly lifted inside. it did not totally unplug, just not pressed down tight. pushed it back in. put the case back on. hit the power button and it's back on, nothing that had been previously loaded was lost.
