The write on the site : 5. I'm
sure my THUMP is fully charged, so why doesn't it play music?
Make sure the volume is not set too low to hear.
Make sure there are song files stored on THUMP.
Connect THUMP to your computer
and open the
folder that shows the contents
of the THUMP
Make sure you have the correct music file formats
loaded into the THUMP memory.
plays MP3, WMA and WAV file
formats. No other
music file formats are supported
at this time.
Make sure the WMA music files you are trying
to play are not protected by
DRM. (See below
for more information on DRM.)
If the song files
are protected by DRM, you need
to download the
DRM Enabled Utility found at www.oakley.com/thump.
6. Why can't I get a full six hours of song
play time out of THUMP?
Many things affect play time, including the
volume level, file compression and
format. Also, lithium ion polymer
lose their charge while not in use.
are also susceptible to temperature.
though they represent the best
lithium ion batteries do not
in high heat.
7. Is it best to completely drain the THUMP
battery before recharging?
makes no difference. Lithium ion
have no "memory effect" like older
technologies such as nickel cadmium,
so you can
charge them at any time - even when
not fully discharged.
Make sure they're fulling charged up (at least 3 hours), then if they still won't start up reset them: press the play and rewind buttons at the same time then release. Those are the middle and aft/backbuttons on the right temple. Try starting them up again (hold the play button until you get the Thump-Thump sound). If none of that works, call their customer support line ... they're still under warranty.
RESETTING OAKLEY THUMP
Most problems can be solved by resetting OAKLEY THUMP:
• To reset OAKLEY THUMP, hold down the Play / Pause button and the Previous Song / Rewind
button at the same time. Resetting OAKLEY THUMP will not erase the songs or files stored
• If the reset procedure does not work, you may need to restore the internal software.
Have you tried to drag individual music files to your Thump? ITumes needs to be set to import in MP3 mode so that the music exports in MP3 mode. My original Thumps will not play AAC format music files. Also, do your Thumps fully charge using the wall charger? Hope this helps.
Plug the Oakley Thump into the computer to let it charge for 3 hours - a connector cable should have been provided. Double-click on My Computer - your computer should have assigned it a drive letter. Double click on the right drive letter - most computers will actually label it an Oakley. Look for a folder called Music. Now you must find songs in mp3 format only that are already downloaded on your computer. Drag the music files from the folder where your music files are stored into the music folder of the Oakley.
Not the easiest unit for beginners, but a neat concept.
create a playlist in itunes then put the songs you want to add to your Oakleys in that playlist. Then, burn that playlist to a cd. after you burn it eject it then re-insert it and transfer the songs from the cd to your itunes...i typically just add them as a new playlist called for my Oakley. once you do that you can drag those songs to your oakleys...all you are doing is changing the format from m4p which are basically songs you purchase via itunes that are protected for apple products; ipod, etc., to m4a format...you don't have to go thru all that if you didn't purchase the songs via itunes...hope this helps..
