Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Won't come on

MP3 was recently dropped in a cup of beer for a second (no kidding), worked for a moment and then went completely out. MP3 is about 6 months old - it's a Sony Walkman.

I've pushed the reset button etc, but dead.

Sorry this unit is more than likely dead
it is shorted out
you might try to replace the battery but truely from experiance is really not worth the agrivation
more than likely its dead

1 thing to try is letting it dry on your heater for a day
if that does not work its gone sorry

How to complete engine replacement on a Dixon are mower, model number DM 3068671 13 up

Hi Denny:
Seriously, this can be a fun project if you have patience, time, a camera, and a secure place to work.
It will be a learning process.
1) Remove battery
2) Methodically dismantle... stay organized.... take pictures.
3) Reverse process with new motor.
4) Install battery.
5) Test run.
6) Have a beer.
I'm really not kidding. Trying to do a step by step, bolt by bolt procedure would not be relevant.
Like a kid with a wind up alarm clock, you take it apart, and put it back together.
Enlisting the aid of an experienced mechanic friend never hurts.
It's really just a sort of jig-saw puzzle that you have to take apart and then put back together.
Have fun.

My laptop is completely dead

Does the power cord not work? Did your laptop battery completely die and won't hold a charge? Anything happen to it recently like hardware/memory installation or did it get dropped? No power outages or lightening strikes?

I dropped my in the toilet and it was working fine until about 20 minutes later the screen just went completly white. What do I do?

Hi Lizzy,
There is probably some water still in your ipod causing your problem.
Firstly, switch your ipod off. This can help prevent any more damage being caused.
Then, leave your ipod in a warm dry place, an airing cupboard or near a radiator (not on top!) for 6-8 hours.
After 6-8 hours try turning your ipod on to see if it is working again.
If it still isn't working turn your ipod off again.
Fill a small bowl with rice and submerge your ipod completely in it over night. It sounds a bit strange, but the rice draws out any of the remaining moisture in the ipod.
In the morning take the ipod out and get the rice out of anywhere it may have got stuck and try again.
Regards, sjstore2

Try to restore the general settings of the ipod by going to General Settings>Reset>Reset All Settings. On The iPod. If This Doesnt Work I Would Take It Back To The Apple Store And Consult One Of The Technicians

Computer & itunes wont recognize i-touch

Sounds like a firmware problem, you can try and ask the same store to "fix their fix".

Sansa won't turn on. I charged it, then it worked for 1 song - went off and now it is not turning on

Did you recently buy this item? Sometimes you must completely charge your mp3 player. Usually takes about 5 hours.

You are an *******....Just to be blunt....This person is asking how to cook the rice to water ration in the rival 6 cup rice cooker and that ratio is like other ways to cook rice, which you are completely wrong about maybe you should take some lessons on how to cook. Its 1 PART RICE TO 2 PARTS WATER....NOT EQUAL, and in the cooker its 2 cups rice and 4 cups water makes a perfect pot!
