This is not a problem. you may have removed the device before the data transfer was over.
i think you will have to reinstall the firmware to fix this

Hi, I was trying to update the Nokia E71's software (300...). At the last second, Software Updater said USB is disconnected and asked me to try again. Actually USB was still connected. I removed...


the battery need not be removed . the problem might have been due to slight voltage fluctuation on line . The system should be flashed now via hardware reset , for which ull have to giv it to an authorized repair centre for sure . The flashing software and softwares to be installed and all cables are not available fr others.

Music won't download it shows up on the computer but once it's unplugged from the computer it's no longer there...


Hello,

Media players have certain folders for holding the data in the player.
Most players (not all) will accept 2 ways of files transfers and depends on the USB connection mode.
Some players switch automatically into the operating connection mode when connecting the USB cable.
Other players can be switched through specific key operation on the player or using the menu in the player.
Consult your manual or use internet support for information about your player's functions. See if you have to install software and maybe updates as well.

1. USB cable connect mode MSC = Mass Storage Class.
Using the explorer in "My Computer", seeing the player as an external flash drive:
When the files are not put into the correct destination folder, the content will not be kept in the memory of the player.
Before disconnecting in MSC mode always go through "safely remove hardware", the icon in the right corner of the computer screen: disconnect the player's flash drive in the icon "safely remove hardware", before pulling out the USB cable.

2. USB cable connect mode MTP = Media Transfer Protocol.
Using a software program like Windows Media Player 10 or 11, the player should be recognized as a media device:
Files must be put in a playlist on the computer first: create a playlist.
After that, synchronizing of the playlist onto the player has to be done.

When needing more help, just add a comment in this thread.

We have a tomtom GO510 and we called and the person said our software needs upgrading and she said there would be no charge for this


You need to go to the TomTom web site and register, then you can download the necessary software install that and THEN & only then connect up your GPS, with the USB cable, & turn on. Then you will be able to update it. Via the internet.

There is an hourglass on the screen and the phone will not work.


Remove the back cover and remove and reseat the battery. Allow a few minutes for it to boot back to your main screen.

Then, download and install the latest version of BlackBerry Desktop Manager software from: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/contactFormPreload.do?code=A8BAA56554F96369AB93E4F3BB068C22&dl=DA5FB46338C8C0DCB1039F7898184FC5

Once installed, connect your BlackBerry to your computer via the USB sync cable. Open Desktop Manager, and click the Application Loader. On the right, you will see Update your device software. Click the Start Button, and if your BlackBerry is not on the latest Handheld Software, an update will appear. Select the update, and run the install. Be sure to select the option that backs up and restores your data. Once started, do not shut down your computer, or disconnect the USB sync cable as this could damage the device.

Once completed, your BlackBerry will restart and you will have the latest version available. This version has been known to correct various issues.

If the issue is still present, then it could be hardware related, and may need to be repaired or replaced. I would then suggest contacting your Provider for Hardware Support.

Have blank screen, but remote works. Harmony 890


If the screen is still blank after you update the firmware in safe mode, then it is a hardware issue and you should contact Logitech's wonderful support team, given that the remote is still under warranty.


Hope that helps :)

LCD Screen is blank


Had the same thing:
Step 1 - remove the battery for about 60 minutes. There seems to be a little energy store in the unit and just taking out the battery, counting to 10, and reinstalling it does not work.

Step 2- Do a software update upgrade from the Logitech site. The new firmware level seems to have fixed the base problem.

If you just take the battery out and put it in, it does not work.
If you take the battery out and just hook it up to do a software upgrade, it does not work becuase the remote gets power from the USB commenction so it remains "hung"

The most disturbing thing about the whole event for me was the number of people that had the problem occur about 12 months and 1 day after purchase....ie when it was out of warranty!!!
