Says Do not disconnect on screen and is frozen there


Hi,

If the Player is frozen while connected to the Computer, then reset the Player by pressing the RESET button without disconnecting from the Computer. Once the Walkman player is reset, then remove it from the Computer. If the portable player is still not responding, reset it by pressing the RESET button with a small pin or similar object.
Confirm that the portable player is connected to a working USB port and that it is charging. If necessary, connect it to a different port. When connected properly, the battery icon will be animated or it will indicate the charge status such as FULL when charging is completed.
After charging the Walkman Player, you can use it. If the issue persists, FORMAT the Player to resolve the issue.
To format the player, select the FORMAT option from the Common Settings menu of the Player.

Sony ebook Reader is Frozen, Not charging


The Sony Reader used a special type of display; the LCD can retain an image without having power. It takes power while changing the pages. In most of the cases, if the power is fully discharged, the LCD will keep the last image that was displayed it makes an impression that the Reader is frozen. However, the Actual thing is, the screen retains the last image on the screen and there is no power to change the pages. These type of situations can be resolved by charging the Reader sufficiently.
Each step in my solution is a possible resolution. Hence I suggest thatyou perform each step and check the operation.
  1. Charge the battery fully by connecting to a computer or by using a compatible AC Adaptor. It may take a few minutes (up to 15 minutes) to displaythe charging symbol if the Reader is fully drained in its last use.
  2. Once the reader is charged fully (at least 45 minutes), slide the power button to turn ON.
  3. Perform a softreset. We can perform a soft reset by pressing the reset button on the Reader.
  4. After the RESET button has been pressed, slide the POWER switch to activate the Reader device again. If the Indicator light nextto the power button on the Reader device is yellow, the unit is attempting to start up. If this is the case, allow it a few moments to complete startup.
  5. If the Reader is still not charging up properly, connect the Reader to computer or AC Adaptorand then press the reset button.
  6. Disconnect the Reader device from the computer (if applicable) and then slide the POWER switch to activate the Readerdevice. Check if the Indicator light next to the powerswitch on the Reader device is yellow (indicating it is turning on) and if the unit is responding.
    If the unit isstill frozen, connect it again to the computer or AC adapter and while connected,check if the Indicator light next to the power switch on the Reader device is red. If this light is red , allow the Reader device tocharge for one hour sothere is sufficient charge for troubleshooting.


    If the issue persists, perform a hard reset to resolve the issue. Please follow the steps to perform a hard reset:

Sat nav won't reset. have tried the re-set button. Screen has frozen


If the reset button of your device is not resetting the device and it is still on the frozen screen. Just turn to the back of the device, unlock the battery from the device and remove it. Then you allow the device rest for about 5 minutes then you fix it back in. Plug the device for about 2 hours and power it on. It should work fine after this. Be sure not to turn on too many applications on the device at the same time time, because that could result in the device being frozen again.
You can as well update the software of the device by charging it for about 2 hours, then you connect it to the computer that has its software. That will show if there are recent updates for the device, then you update the software with the latest version. that should take a little while to update. Then install your maps on it, safely disconnect the device from the computer and turn it on. That can also help you solve the problem.
Hope this was helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

Non responsive (battery is fully charged). Screen has frozen up.


There is a reset button at the bottom (insert paper clip in pinhole). If all attempts trying to unfreeze it fail, you may have a logic board issue. Are you sure the Kindle powers up? Try to power up your Kindle with a different battery. If that fails, you can get the part at Kindle Repair and there is a guide that shows you how to open a kindle and install parts at Kindle Repair Guide.

Unit crashes then will not restart after being unresponsive.


After removing the battery, I discovered a small brass reset button, about 3 mm in diameter, near the battery connection terminal. This was gently pressed with a pen for 15 seconds. After refitting the battery, the unit was fully functional again. This reset results in needing to set the clock again. No other settings are affected.

Screen frozen on slide to power off


Turn iPod touch off and turn it on again.

If the iPod will not turn off, try to reset it. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until either the Apple logo or battery symbol appears. If the battery symbol appears, continue to charge iPod touch until it is fully charged.

If this doesn't work, try restoring the iPod
