I have a Craig jukebox Bluetooth model CHT935BT-BLS..after turning on it plays music for 15 minutes than shuts off,I power it back on than it shuts off again

Sounds like its either low on power or the memory in it is to full to operate. To check the power issue does the unit run on built in batteries that need charged or is it a fixed ac power unit that plugs into the wall? If it plugs into the wall ensure the plug os securly connected both to the unit and inyo the wall receptacle too. If its a built in re-chargeable unit plug your charger into it for at least 6 hours and then try using the unit again if it doesnt shut down this time it was a low battery; however if it still shuts down try removing 3 -4 of the longer or bigger music files from it and then try using it again and see if it shuts down. Hopefully this will help somehow.

My ipod will not turn on. what do i do?

If your ipod is plugged up to the computer, try hooking the unit up to a wall socket. Once it is plugged into the wall give it a few seconds, and then you have to reset the ipod. This can be done by holding down the top button and the center button. Hold them both down for several seconds and your ipod should boot up. If this still does not fix the problem then the battery or the motherboard is going to have to be replaced. Check with Apple to see if the unit is still under warranty with this site:

Take out the battery. Plug it in. Does it play reliably?

Yes: That's a bad battery.

No: reset the device, and try above again.

I plugged my creative mp3 into a docking meant for an i-pod and since then it wont work unless its plugged into the wall, my other half has now wiped everything off it but his computer wont recignise it :(...

Hello bitchstress,

Unfortunately not all accessories are interchangeable. It sounds like the iPod dock may have damaged your Creative MP3 player. If the unit only functions when it is plugged into AC power, I'd guess that the battery or charging circuitry was damaged somehow.

You don't say what model the Creative MP3 player is so I don't know if the battery on this particular unit is replaceable or not. If it is, you might start there. Otherwise the unit may require service which you can obtain by contacting the manufacturer or through a local consumer electronics store (such as Best Buy).

Best regards
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Dead Creative Zen M

Usually this problem is due to the firmware. When the firmware is updated to version 1.62.02, this problem usually will be corrected. The older firmwares have problems in recognizing the battery and allowing the battery to power the unit.

You will need a wall/AC charger for the operation. Plug in the wall charger and USB cable at the same time. Your Zen should power on when connected to direct AC power via the wall charger. Once it is powered on, connect the USB cable to your computer. Then begin the firmware download.

If your Zen does not power on when connected to the wall charger, your unit is dead and its time to replace it or get the motherboard replaced via one of the Repair services offered on this website.

If the upgrade button on the firmware window is not available, it is also time to replace your motherboard due to corruption of a chip on the board.
