Re: MP 3 player and noise

Try different headphones and/or new battery. buzzing is usually a short/bad/dirty connection somewhere.

Hiss between songs and during quieter passages of songs. Tried different headphones - still same problem. Checked quality of downloaded songs - no hiss on other players.

Noise is one of the paramaters describing any audio device.
They are usually designed for the noise to be as low as possible, most certainly not audible.

If you have got it only recently, and it's still under warranty you could try returning it and asking for a replacement. It should not be that way out of the box.
The very worst thing that could happen is that they give you one that is just as noisy.

If it is the same on different headphones (thank you for checking that) then it is not an unusually sensitive set of earphones causing the problem. But the problem might be reduced by using a pair of earphones with an online volume control.
Set the volume on the player too high and reduce it using the headphones volume control.
That should reduce the noise below the level of the music.
Perhaps try that first. If it does not help they really made a mess of designing or building it.

The only other options are listening to loud music only or to buy a new one, they are solutions, but i do not wish them on you.

My Sports mp3 player-RCA S2204 froze. Was listening to music and engaged stop watch. It Foze on stop watch mode. Push menu, hold to power down & nothing happens. Stuck on stop watch...

  • Try resetting the device it’s usually a small pinhole on the back or side of the device try holding that in for about 10 seconds.
  • Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the manufacturer’s website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings.

The radio on my Coby 610 turns off after 3 minutes of play

I don't think I am actually solving this, but I think I may have a reason why it is happening. I am having the same problem with the radio turning off after about three minutes (I, too, had to reinstall the firmware).
I think the system sees the player as "inactive" when in radio mode and shuts down after a few minutes of "inactivity" -- even though you are, in reality, listening to the radio. The exact same thing happens when you pause an MP3 you are listening to; the system will see the player as inactive (because the music is paused) and shut down after a few minutes.
Maybe there isn't anything in the system (firmware?) that can differentiate the inactivity of just listening to music coming in through an antenna and the inactivity of paused digital music?
Feel free to send this to Coby tech support and see what comes back.

Copy recorded music on Apple Mac and listen to it using iTunes

make sure that the actual file is saved on to your jvc first of all , so it can be transferred , because like some camcorders you have to finalize the video before it can be used on another equipment , then if that does not work , just download audacity or any mac recorder for free of the web and play the fm radio live via av leads in to your mac and record it live coming from your jvc make sure you save it as an acc( cd quality ) file for best quality or mp3

Audiobook from netlibrary

ebooks are usually copyrighted or another type of audio format, you have to make sure the ebooks your trying to listen to are MP3 or Unprotected Windows Media Audio files, that is all this device will recognize.

Help with copying music to my mp3

I have the same player. Are you just dragging and dropping songs on to the player? I use Windows Media Player 10 to put music on the player. It has a function called SYNC. What that does is take your music from WMA 10 (WMA, MP3 files, etc...) and transfers them to your mp3 player. You might give that a shot. Also, WMA 10 should recognize your player and let you connect with it.

Buzzing noise

If this happens all the time you may check the headphone jack for any corrosion, rust, etc. by taking a handy flashlight and shining it into that jack. Also, try another pair of headphones, if this happens all the time. If this problem occurs only while listening to that one audio track, you can check that the file plays nicely on your computer, and if it doesn't you may wanna download a new copy of that track. If those simple steps fail to result in solution, you can take an alcohol quetip into the headphone jack and clean inside, just make sure its dry when you plug your headphones back in. All in all, however, it sounds like you are having some issues either with a tuner or audio decoder chip inside the MP3 player. Typically, that results in simply the purchase of a new one. If you do get a new one, purchase a warranty - small electronics are more liable for damage than larger ones and it usually pays to invest in warranties when it comes to such things.

San Disk 230 (512 MB) MP-3 Player

If you have ripped the songs using windows media player 9 then you may want to rerip then again using windows media player 10 ( provided that you disable Copy Protect Music in The RIP tab ) and windows media player 11. If the songs came from music stores (napster,Rhapsody etc.. ) you can resync them using their software. You may want to reformat your player then retransfer the songs. This is normal if you purchase the songs. It dont mean the player is faulry its just the songs.

Very loud noise / Corrupt files on PNY Vibe

According to page 15 of the Vibe manual, "When formatting in Windows XP, if File System is FAT32 or NTFS, VIBE does not work." Step 2 under "Formatting VIBE" states: "After setting File system to FAT, press Start button to format." Don't know if this helps, but, if so, you might want to download the manual from support at Sanddollar
