When things freeze up like this, usually a Firmware reload is the thing to attempt. You should have a disc with the player - follow the instructions carefully.

    Hi again.

    I'm not familiar with this model, so my comments are based partly on my own MP3 player.

    First thing to try: does your player have a main on/off switch as well as a 'press' for on button? If so, try connecting it to your computer with the main switch in both positions.

    (My player has a sliding main on/off switch, and then a press button on the front which turns it on, does 'play' and 'pause', and turns it off - with a long press).

    When I connect it to the computer, the player is 'off' - ie: not running - but it'll only connect properly if the main sliding switch is first placed in the correct position - I can't remember if it's 'on' or 'off'! - and bizarrely it'll only charge from the computer with this switch in the opposite position. So, that's the first thing to try.

    If no luck with this, it might be worth the Firmware reload. Your player should have come with a disc. On this should be various helpful progs and manuals, one of which is the Firmware. The 'firmware' is the actual software which operates your player and makes it work - without it your player is just an empty chip.

    You first need to install this prog on your computer, then connect your player to it and follow the instructions carefully, step by step.

    It'll wipe out everything that's already on your player, so transfer and save your music first if you don't already have a back-up copy.

    If you don't have a disc, go on to the manufacturer's website, and look for 'support' - they should have it there.

My console works and lets me play online games but it wont let me play disk games how can i fix this


Your Blu-ray drive has gone bad most likely. Try inserting a blu-ray movie to double check. Also, try to play a music cd or a dvd. I usually see that cd's and dvds will play but the BR movies and games will not.If your concole is less that 1 year old, contact sony for a warranty repair. If it is older than 1 year, they will repair it for a cost.

My sandisk sansa e260 mp3 player wont trun on it goes to the start up screen and thin keeps repeting that screen how can i fix this does any1 know?


Hi, the Sansa E260 is a portable MP3 player released by SanDisk in 2004. Several problems may cause the E260 to not function as intended from time to time. Common problems that occur are the device freezing, album art not appearing on the screen when a song is playing, pictures not filling the screen size and missing information on the separate tracks. You can troubleshoot the device and fix many of these common problems without the need of a service technician.

Reset
1. The Sansa E260 may freeze or function in other unexpected ways from time to time. This generally occurs when the unit's software has developed an error. Reset the device to clear the error and return the device to normal working operation. A unit reset is similar to rebooting your computer. You won't lose any data stored on your device.

To reset the E260, press and hold the "Power/Menu" button for about 15 seconds. The device will be forced to power down, during which the error will be cleared. You can restart the E260 as normal once the reset is complete.
Album Art Does Not Display
2. The E260 supports viewing album art on the display screen during the playing of a song. You may find that your album art is not showing up on the display when music is playing on the device. To fix this, make sure the associated album art file is in the same folder as the song being played. You will need to connect the E260 into your computer to move the album art files into the music folder.
Photos Aren't Full-Screen
3. Photos displayed on the E260 will not show up as full-screen shots if they are not cropped to the correct dimensions. The E260 software does not support stretching pictures to fit the full screen. To ensure your photographs will display on the full screen, crop the images to 128x64 in photo-editing software prior to transferring the image on the E260.
Unknown Artist or Album
4. The E260 displays information about each song using the ID3 tags associated with each track. ID3 tags hold information such as the artist name, album name, track number, year it was released and other information. If the E260 shows an artist or album as unknown, the information in the ID3 tag was not filled in. You can insert information into the ID3 tags from your computer.

To change the ID3 information, right-click on the music file and choose "Properties." Click on the "Summary" tab and choose "Advanced." The ID3 fields will display in the window. Insert any of the missing information and click "OK." When you upload the song onto your E260, the newly inserted information will show up in the display.

Hope it helped...

The deck opens buts doesnt play music and the screen doesnt show.


I have the same deck and a very similar problem. Mine was stuck in the out position and would beep and move a little but there was no lights or music. I called Alpine and they told me that sometimes the inner sleeve around the deck will pinch the unit a little. I took my unit out of the dash and sure enough the plastic face plate came loose and moved about 1/32 of an inch when I slide it back in place and turned the power back on it worked perfectly. Hope this helps.
