Screen is magnetized

I went camping and took some small speakers with me and plugged them in. The next day the bottom corner was dark. I thought it was magnetized and would last months but the next day after that the whole screen was dark and has been since. How do I fix that?

I have a polaroid mp3 player 4GB PMP280C-4 i madea mistake and adjusted the brightness and noe the screen completely dark. how can i get it back to normal

Ok, I had this problem & finally fixed it! Hold the power button till the word "polaroid" come across the screen, wait a few seconds to make sure its on. Push the bottom right corner of the screen, push the middle of the left hand of the screen next, go down to about the middle of the screen and start pushing towards the right. If it doesnt work right off then keep trying cause it does work!

You may reset or restore your iPod for a try, this can fix many general iPod problems. Or you may take a look at this iPod FAQ, it's informative.

My 30 gb zune is frozen

There's a fix:

Your zune will need a "hard reset."

To do this, use a small screwdriver to pop off the plastic shielding where the zune cable plugs into and remove the two screws on either side of the plug. Next pop the cover off and locate the battery plug at the top left corner of the zune, using your screw driver, pop the cable connection half way off, and do this to the other plug on the right side. Wait 3 seconds, then push down the right connector and then the left battery connecter. Your zune should start up immediately. Press the backing of the zune down (make sure headphone jack is aligned) and put the screws and cover back in place.

It's an easy process but if you're unsure don't attempt it.

I had the same problem and I tried many things to fix it. Mine started working again when I took an old speaker and turned it face down, then put the mp3 player face up on the magnet (face of MP3 away from magnet). I checked back a few days later and it was working with all (or maybe most I haven't really checked) of the files intact. I thought it might wipe out all of my files but figured that if I could get it to work again it would be worth it. This might be extreme but I tried running it out of battery which didn't work and pushing different buttons in different sequences which didn't work either. I tried pressing buttons simultaneously and for extended periods looking for some sort of reinitialization process but nothing just kept coming up with the corrupted message. I think it got corrupted when I removed it from my PC without doing the "SAFELY REMOVE HARDWARE" process on my PC. I won't be doing that again. I am really glad I didn't throw the thing away!

Sansa e250 won't turn on

Worked for me too.

I just plugged connected my e260 via synch cord to my PC and imdiately changed my mind, unplugging it. Froze it with green connecting arrows, but no "connecting" title at the top. Upon pressing the power button, the device screen went blank as if off (but I could just barely see that it was still on).

Pulling the battery worked to reset it. It restarted when I turned it on again and is now synching.
