Re: My mp3 lock is stuck. Please Help!

I contacted RCA and they said to make sure that the switch on the side is in the unlock position. If that does not work resest it by taking the battery out for one minute. That did not work for mine so she said it was defective. Since I did not have a receipt or an exact date of purchase, they will only refund me $42.55, and I think it only has a one year warranty, after that your on your own. Hope this helps.

Re: My mp3 lock is stuck. Please Help!

My daughter's player had this problem. Would not unlock. The lock switch on the pc board was worn out, loose, or just plain defective. To fix, I opened the player's case, clipped the inside tabs on the plastic lock lever and made sure the pc switch was in the unlock position, then reassembled. Lock function is now disabled permanently, but the buttons are stiff enough. Still haven't fixed the broken batt cover, but at least she can use it now. RCA S1000A

Well I guess I'll be using it too on the new Zunes because I think they are going to be a lot more sensitive with the touchpad

My 30gig zune is froze and unresponsive. Please help

there is a "lock" button on the top on the left side make sure this switch is turned to off.
Try one or more of these solutions to resolve this problem:
  • The Zune may be locked. Move the hold switch to the unlocked position. It may help to move the switch back and forth. Then press the play/pause button for a second.
  • The battery may be drained.try recharging it
  • To reset your Zune, press and hold the back button while pressing up on the Zune pad. Resetting turns Zune off and on again.

Lock problem (zune 30)

If it's a zune 30, it's just a glitch in the software timing and so you have to flick it back and forth until it works.
My zune does the same exact thing, it always has. So just bare with them (:
hoprfully microsoft will create a software or firmware update that help itt. (:
