Re: wont turn on

Do you have the remote and if so have you tried to do a reset? Most likely your battery is dead. As in cannot be charged anymore. The good news is that the battery is replaceable. You can sometimes find them on E-Bay for around $20 and they are fairly simple to replace.

My Olympus m:robe MR-500i MP3... Problem:


click Start>Run then copy and paste the following:
C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\

replace 'Username" with the name of your user account and press enter

In the new window, find olympus and make sure there are no important data in it and delete the folder
then do the same in
C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Local Settings\Application Data

You will need to re-syn your m:robe and re add songs.

Or you can try sync on a different computer and resync on your own computer

M:trip not responsive to m:robe

Mine did that to me a few times. One thing you could try is to make sure the driver is activated. Do this by using the start menu and clicking run. then type in msconfig. the go to the tab services, and make sure the program Mrobeservice is checked and running. Hope that helps!

My m:robe wont work at all!

If the screen doesnt even light up then you pretty much stuffed.

If battery isnt charging then the battery's life is gone. you cant really get another battery all you can do is remove it to prevent damage and use it plugged in.

Open the case by unscrewing the four screws (2on bottom and 2 on side)

move the HDD (hard disk) and take out battery and unplug

replace HDD and lid.

Scratchy music

Hey, sorry you havn't received a solution for your m:robe till now, you've probably already fixed the problem. But if not, I'd suggest taking it back to the store that you bought it from, then they can send it back to the 'Customer support centre'. I had the exact problem happen to me and I just had it sent away, it came back fine. Hope that helps:)
