Question about Dell DJ MP3 Player

Dell DJ won't reload or reboot

I had a problem powering down my Dell DJ (15 GB). I then went to the manual and used the Rescue Mode. I first tried to reload the firmware - it dumped it (I guess) from the player and then when I hooked it to my PC it recognized it but then nothing changed. NOW when I re-start it says "Firware problem". When I delete and reinstall the driver from the system, and then go to sync it says the player has no space....but the player reads more than 14 GB of free space......what gives?

I would first suggest reformatting the DJ from Rescue Mode, and then try reloading the firmware from here: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&releaseid=R107735&SystemID=PDA_MP3_DJ_2&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=9420&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=3&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=31&fileid=139674 If neither of those work, it may be time to look into some repair options.

Firmware error


Try going into rescue mode by pressing the Play button while inserting the end of a thin object such as a straightened paper clip into the reset at the same time, then hold the Play button until your Dell Pocket DJ turns on.
Scroll to "clean up" and select. This just defragments your players hard drive, you won't lose any data.
If that doesn't fix it try replacing the firmware. Download the most current firmware from Dell's support website. Scroll to and select "reload firmware" in rescue mode. Connect to pc with usb cable and power on player. Double click the firmware file on your pc and let it do it's thing. This won't affect your saved data either.
If neither of those work you may need to reformat the players hard drive. This will wipe out anything you had on the player. Scroll to and select "format all" while in rescue mode. Select "yes" then just watch the progress bar. Good luck!

Anything unusual happen to the player before the problem started? Dropped it or perhaps unplugged it from pc while synchronising? The most likely fixable problem is a loose connector on the HDD/main board cable, or a failing battery/power adaptor giving the HDD a voltage too low. unfortunately however the HDD on these players is a bit vulnerable to rough treatment. When you connect it to a computer, does it still appear as normal or is it not recognised etc. What operating system PC are you using - perhaps formatting from the PC first before trying to install the firmware will help. Are you using the latest firmware from Dell or are you using a cd that came with the player? Is your player still under warranty or do you want to try and open it up and have a check yourself. Let me know more info and what you wish to try :)

The solution to many random problems is to simply reset your Dell DJ. This can be done by using a small, thin object (such as the tip of an ink pen) to press the reset button that is on the bottom-left side of the DJ. -or- Hold down the play/pause button while it's off, insert a paperclip into the reset button, take it out, and then let go of the play/pause. The DJ should open to a rescue mode, then run disc clean-up.
