Dell digital jukebox

Hi my mp3 player has been crashed or i dont know exactly what happened, but i went to use it one day and it started to make this clicking sound then it froze on the dell screen for quite a while until it died from lack of battery charge. So I was wondering if you can give me any advice on what to do to try and fix this?

    I was using my dell dj 20gb in school and i went to turn it off and it wouldnt. Then I went to lunch thinking it turned off. I came back about 20min later and it hadnt turned of. I used a pin to reset it. Then it brought up the menu with reboot, clean, etc. I tried doing what u said and clean it. I clicked clean and it did nothing. I pressed reboot and it turned it off then back on to the same screen what should i do?

Hey, mine was doing the exact same thing for awhile. This worked for me: Use a pin or pointy object to press the reset button while simultaneously holding down the play button. Continue to hold down the play button, but release the reset button. You should now see a screen with some options such as clean, reformat, etc. I just cleaned mine, then said reboot when that was done. It works again and I didn't lose any of my songs!!!

Samsung mp3 player crash

Hi undercover. I don't have experience of your actual model, but I've had a similar thing happen to my Inovix MP3/4 player when it crashed (also crashing my whole computer!) and went completely 'dead'. Plugging it into the USB port had no effect - no charge symbol and the computer didn't even acknowledge something was being plugged in. Basically, I kept on trying every time I was on the computer! 2 days later, I plugged it in and 'ding-dong' Windows XP recognised something was in the USB port. I then carried out a Firmware re-load using the supplied disc, and my player burst into life! Firmware crashes are pretty common with various players, I believe. Depending on how old your player is, try the manufacturer's website to see if they've updated the Firmware. Good luck.

Doesnt start up

Hi. My Inovix mp3/4 player suffered a similar fate when it crashed during a Firmware reload. The player went completely dead and wasn't even recognised by the computer when plugged into the USB port. I basically kept on trying - a couple of times whenever I used the computer - using different ports. 2 days later - 'ding-dong' - Windows XP suddenly recognised something was in the port, and I tentatively attempted a Firmware reload. Success! (Don't ask me to explain it tho'...)

sounds like the hard drive took a dump you may need to reformat totally and redo the firmware as if you dont have the ability to do this send back to the manufact and they do this stu ff all the time.
