Maybe the battery's dead?

Hello, Well I've had my jukebox for almost a year now, and this is what's suddenly going on. Also, let me mention that when i got it, the person who sold it to me put a brand new battery in it for me (or so he says....). I had not touched the player for about three months, I just didn't have any time to use it. And so two days ago I tried to turn it on, but it wouldn't do anything, so i figured that the battery must have died over that time it was idle. i plug it into the wall, and everything works fine. I even upload some more music into it while it's plugged in. I let it sit over night to charge, but when I pick it up the next day it won't turn on again. However whenever it's in the wall it works perfect again, it'll be working great while in the wall but the second i take out the power cord it turns off. Perhaps the battery won't get a charge at all, or something. I don't know what's going on or how to fix it, any ideas? Is there a way to give the battery some kinda jump start? Thanks a lot for any advice in advance. I'm going from LA to NY and would really like to listen to some music on that long flight!

Re: Maybe the battery's dead?

Hi, it could be of two reasons 1. internal charging circuitary is blown,it just show as if charging but actually no current for charging is fed in to the battery. 2.Battery is totally dead and it is impossible to get it done with the low current charger inside. According to my opinion the first one is more common since the unit is kept with battery and this complaint usually happens to camcorders,and i have corrected many charger circuitary with this problem. all the best my friend sreejith

I have Musicmatch Jukebox 10 but have just changed over to Windows 7.I have a Packard Bell Hard Drive.How do I update from xp please ?

Musicmatch Jukebox 10 is not compatible with windows 7 >>

MusicMatch Jukebox 10 was designed to be used on older 32-bit operating systems like Windows XP.Note that MusicMatch Jukebox 10 is also no longer being developed, so it is unlikely that these problems will be resolved in future.
Before proceeding with installation of Musicmatch Jukebox 10, you need to look on your Windows 7 PC for any previous versions of Musicmatch Jukebox. If you've already tried installing version 8, for example, then you need to run a complete uninstall, not to mention a good clean up of the registry.Use Revo uninstaller to uninstall and clean any registry trash ,revo uninstaller can be downloaded on the link below:

Once you have done this, or if you had no earlier versions of Musicmatch Jukebox installed, you will need to download and install the only suitable version.Download and Install Musicmatch Jukebox 10 on Windows 7 >>

Once downloaded, right-click the installer file and select Run as Administrator. Next, you will need to OK the first of many warnings that the file is incompatible with this version of Windows.Proceed through the installer, clicking Next at each option.When you come to the registration page, click the option to not register and also claim to be under 13. Click Next to complete more steps of the installation, changing the location required for your Music folder if necessary. Musicmatch Jukebox 10 will add files and playlists to this location.As the installer finishes, you will be prompted to install the Yahoo! toolbar. You will need to deselect this.A successful installation should result in more incompatibility warnings. Ignore these, but agree to reboot your PC. Next right click Musicmatch Jukebox icon and select properties > compatibility >check run this program in compatibility mode for: (Windows XP) click apply ->ok.

Sansa clip went dead

Slide the power button on your SanDisk Sansa MP3 player up.

  • 2 Hold the power button on your Sansa in the up position for about 15 seconds. This action serves as a powering down of the Sansa device.
  • 3 Wait for your Sansa MP3 player to restart and let go of the power button. Actions taken during your last operation since powering down normally have been deleted and your player is now reset.

    Won't turn on.

    "If your Zen is dead, wont respond to anything, try this, plug it in to the computer, hold the power switch in the on position, THEN trigger the reset button, worked like a charm for mine, I had thought it a lost cause."
