Didn't get any instructions. i need a manual

This device should appear as a USB mass storage device when you plug it into a computer (windows, mac or linux should work).

Once it's visible, simply drag (or otherwise copy) your music into it. Then unmount it (eg. "remove safely" on Windows). Removing files is basically the same process: just delete the tracks you see on it as required.

When it has music loaded into it, set the switch on the side to the "on" position. It should start playing immediately. The main button panel should be self-explanatory: there's a play button in the middle, skip forward and back on either side, and volume up/down above and below. There's no way to mess it up, so just play with it until you get the hang of it.

Tracks are played in the order in which they were loaded onto the device, unless you use a utility to sort them. Unlike the iPod Shuffle (which this appears to be a clone of) this device does NOT play in random order. Your friendly neighbourhood hacker will be able to use a utility (such as "fatsort") to reorganize the playing order.

This device sometimes loses track of where it's supposed to be, and just starts at the first track again. Annoying, but what do you expect for cheap?

Jensen SMPV-2GBUB wont turn on or charge

How to get the Jensen mp3 to charge - model smpv-2gbub,

transparent-pixel._v42752373_.gifIgnore instructions that came with it - they don't work.

Here's how to charge - I discovered this with mine:
1.When computer is on and at windows screen, attach cable from computerto mp3player with mp3 turned player off. It will immediately show you aconnect screen on the mp3 player.

2. pressed the left side middle button twice - this will turn it on and go into music like you're playing a song.

3.Now turn the mp3 player on by switching the button on the right side ofthe device to the on position. It will suddenly show you it's charging- the battery on the front of the mp3 player will have a signal pulsingthrough it.

4. It will turn off after one minute. It's literallyhalf charged now. Strange I know. Repeat from step 1 and it will fullycharged.

If it doesn't fully charge after it turns itself offafter 1 minute the 2nd time, then repeat steps from 1, one more time,but this time when it turns itself off after a minute, still leave itconnected to the computer for 10 mins even though it looks like it'soff. Then disconnect it physically from computer, turn it on with theon button on the right side, press the left side middle button twiceand look at the battery on the screen - it should be fully charged now.

Polaris 280 - tank track keeps coming off

I battled with the track falling off for over a season. The pool guys said they fixed it. Tried the previous solution to adjust middle wheel but no luck. My solution was to remove the left wheel and the tank (to get to the screws). The wheel mount allows for minor adjustment but it is also reversible. Turn the mount around and this will extend the wheel base much more. Mine ran for several hours after doing this and so far the track stays on.

I'm in the same boat. We had the rear window replaced by the shop a couple of months ago, but the driver side window is doing the same thing. I don't want to spend another $250 if I can do it myself.
