Re: Ticking noise

The ticking noise is the arm inside the hard drive swinging back and forth in an effort to find the first sector of the drive. Best guess is a stuck spindle on which the platters ride. Another common name for this condition is called "stiction." If you feel comfortable, you can take the hard drive out and remove the cover off of it. Then, gently take your index finger and touch the edge of the platter and attempt to turn it. DO NOT touch the surface of the platter or play with the servo arm. You must do this in a dust free environment and as quickly as possible. Otherwise, you can take it to someone who is familiar with hard drive repair. Once it is working, you will need to a backup of the drive. Also, you will need to replace the drive because it will stick again. Good luck.

How do I delete songs on 3oc vision

Do you have a copy of these songs in your computer through itunes? Or have you connected to Itunes before? If YES then connect to Itunes, select the Ipod in the left midle side of the Itunes source pane. Once you have the summary page, select music and then make sure to sync selected songs only and tick the ones that you like to go in your Ipod and the ones that you will not tick will be deleted.
Note: If you have not connected this ipod ever before in that computer, beware as it will delete all your songs in the ipod. This only works with people whose content is managed by itunes.

I can't hear any music

Does the player show the time for the song ticking down as if it is playing? Try some new or different ear buds or hook it up to your computer speakers.

Music outside the iPod

You can't because you can't. It is not a speaker that is meant for music, last time i checked it was pseudo something but forgot the exact name, its not able to make audio, just ticking sounds. Its sort of like the 'beep' that happens when your computer starts, you can't make that speaker play music it just beeps..

Player doesn't display the music that is synced on it

maybe you don´t get the right format on the music you put on your device sometimes you need to convert the music archives to mp3 before you put in

IPod Errors

Distinct clicking, right? Your hard drive is about to crash completely. Other than the ticking, your problems are probably because the hard drive is not giving out the information it needs to because it can't. You need either a new Hard drive or a new player. once you get it all of you problems should go away.

My philips mp3 wont work

Make sure you back up all songs on the GoGear before attempting this solution.

1) Back up all files on the GoGear
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new

Now you can do the firmware upgrade that will prevent this problem from occuring in the future. Open up Philips Device Manager and click the Update tab. This problem was caused because most GoGear's were designed for Windows XP with Media Player 10 (which is no longer the latest standard).
