Re: Picture of a padlock?

The HOLD switch is activated. This is a feature that allows you to lock all the buttons, so you don't switch it on & off accidentally.

Flick the switch on the side!

When I try to turn it on, a padlock icon comes up and says "hold". I cannot get into my mp3 player.

Look for a little tab that shows an arrow or padlock symbol...slide in the opposte direction

The pictures will not show up on the MP3 Player

Open the picture in Paint under windows accessories, then go to the file menu and click "save as" and save the picture as a jpg. Then pick a folder to save it in and copy that onto your player into the image folder. that should do it.

No name mp4 player with 1.8 screen 8gb keeps showing a picture of a padlock...owners manual does not mention it at all!!! Can anyone please help... Thanks in advance!!!

Do not know the brand? But you can find some informations from the package. And then seach some keywords to find what you want to know via google or yahoo. But i think the padlock display that the mp4 player has lock the keypress as the result of no actions to it for several minute. So you can set the time to lock your keypress.
The final method is to contact the seller where you buy it.

My ematic Mp3 player is frozen. When I turn it on it just shows the picture of the river. At one point it just showed some wierd lines. Is it possible to take it apart and then put it back together.

there is a small hole on the back small enough for a medium sized pin, just turn it on and put the pin in the hole and it will reset the mp3 player manually, that means it will clear the onboard memory and most likely fix your problems but it will not delete your songs or anything, hope that helps

Stuck on hold

I bought my mp3 unit yesterday and I encountered the SAME problem.

The "hold" button is turned on. Slide it "off" and everything should be OK.
