When the e200 is taken out of the package ensure the "Hold" switch is not in the lock position.

When looking at the front of the player, the "Hold" button on the top should be pushed all the way to the left.

After pushing the "Hold" button to the left, then press the "menu" button to power on the device.

Also, plug it in for a few hours to charge the battery.

Toshiba a 350 will not charge while open

Do one thing, if possible of course. Download any Linux distro and create a bootable USB or DVD/CD with the distro, Once that is all set, have your laptop to boot from the USB port, reboot the laptop with the USB already connected. Once booted, click on Live disk or Try before installing, this won't change anything the HDD so there is nothing to worry about. While testing the live disk, connect the charger or power supply to the laptop with the lid open to see if it charges. If it does, then it's a problem with Windows it self. Right now is kind of hard to explain since I'm not on a Windows machines now. But do try it.

HD6330 GoGear seems to have a virus

Chris, The reason the gogear shuts down is the battery needs charging. The lead that was supplied when new, was fitted with three plugs on it, one went into a power outlet (AC) one plugged into the base of the player, the last one (USB) into your P.C.
You should also have a CD with Philips device manager on, this needs downloading to your laptop, Windows media player version 10. is the only version Philips recomend for up / downloading music to the player.

Sandisk 240 1.0 gb

I had this same problem. What I ended up doing was going into My Computer into the device itself and seeing what showed up. It appears a few new songs I popped on there the day after were appearing but nothing else. I deleted all the files, unplugged it from the computer and let the library update, old songs were still playing. Plugged it back into the machine and voila they showed up.

No power,not charging


It is most likely that there was nothing wrong with the original adapter/charger. What I suspect is there could very well be a loose connection more aptly a cold solder among the pins of the power jack that is soldered to the motherboard. Normally, this jack would have two (2) pins and your description "...unless the cord was in a certain position..." indicates that one or both pins are not connecting right to the motherboard solder points.

It is relatively easy to resolder the said pins. What would be more challenging would be opening the laptop and exposing the motherboard's to be able to do solder work underneath.

Should you venture a DIY, then you would be needing a set of jeweler's screwdrivers and a soldering iron and a little lead. Should you be uncomfortable and unfamiliar with electronic works, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Sansa won't charge or load.

Plug it into the computer (the cord you would use to charge it and transfer files), and hold down the power button for at least 15 seconds. The Sansa should then begin to turn on and start charging. :)
