There is a very small hole on the bottom of the device where your unit would connect to a DVR base. Just to the left of the USB looking inputs, push a toothpick into the hole and that will reset the device.

My ipod is disabled


Step 1:
Attach a USB connector to the iPod and plug it into a USB connection on a computer for power, or into a stand alone USB charger plugged into a power strip for electrical power. Pick up the iPod. Move the "Hold" switch at the top of the iPod to the "Locked" position so that an orange color appears by the switch. Return the switch to the "Unlocked" position. Repeat this process. Press and hold the "Home" button and the button at the top right corner together if using a fifth generation iPod, iPod Nano, iPod Mini or iPod with a click wheel. Press and hold the "Menu" button and the "Play/Pause" button together if using an iPod Touch. Press and hold the "Menu" button and the "OK" button together if using an older iPod. Continue holding the buttons together until the screen flashes and then displays the iPod name and the Apple logo. Release the buttons. Wait as the iPod resets itself and turns itself back on. Leave the iPod connected to the USB connector so that it can fully charge the battery. Remove the iPod from the USB connector. Navigate to a song using the menu selection and play some music

Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of your iPod. Plug the other end of the iPod USB cable into a free USB port on your Mac or PC. Open the iTunes application by using the dock icon on a Mac or the start menu on a PC. Click on the name of your iPod under the "Devices" list in the main iTunes window. Click on the "Sync" button to create a connection between the computer and the iPod. Click on the eject symbol after the syncing process is complete, and then unplug your iPod from the computer. The lock code has been reset; when you go to disable the iPod again, you will be prompted to choose a new four-digit code. hope this helps

I have a Sansa c200 that will not turn on, although the light ring is on. When I plug it into the usb port on my computer it does not recognize it either. Thanks!


First try and reset the player: 1. Press and hold the Power/Menu button for approximately 20 seconds. 2. Release the Power/Menu button. 3. Press the Power/Menu button again to turn on the player.
If that does not do it, re-seat the battery: Here is how to get to the battery, 1. Press the battery compartment in while sliding to the right. 2. Remove old battery. 3. Insert new battery or reset the old battery. 4. Close the battery compartment. Then try and see if it will come on with out the battery hooked to your computer. 1. Remove the battery. 2. Connect the player to the PC to verify if it turns on. 3. Re-seat the battery to ensure proper connection. 4. Verify if the player turns on.

Battery went dead. replaced battery and now it


Last night I replaced my battery and my unit would not go any further than the Pearl logo. So this morning I downloaded the firmware upgrade from http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2243/related/1, and followed all the troubleshooting instructions that popup when you start the program:

start the program,
remove the battery,
hold the play button while plugging into usb,
release the play button the the term "initalizing" replaces "searching",
check the box that says "format data",
click the start button to replace the firmware.

After I did this, my pearl started normally, and my computer recognized it again. It also fixed my aac-error problem.

Nwz-e438f will not play, or connect to computer


Please try connecting the Walkman to a different USB port on the Computer and check if that helps.

Please make sure that there is no other USB devices connected to the Computer at the same time.

If there was no change after the player was reset, connect it to the computer and reset it again, leaving it connected.

Keep the Walkman connected to the Computer for 4 hours to fully charge the battery. Then, check whether the Walkman is working properly.

Ensure that the HOLD switch is not activated.

If the issue still persists after performing the steps provided above service of the Walkman is required.

* When the white option screen comes up pick the format disk
* Wait until all done do not pick any option on archos after format is done Pc should recognize your archos in 5 seconds 

* Put the firmware in root section of the archos not in any folder.
* Safely remove the usb for Archos from your pc first and then unplug the cable.
* Do not pick any option on the Archos screen
* Just turn it off from the power button by holding it until it turns off
* Wait about 5 minutes and plug it back to pc

Make sure the hold switch if off. Reset the player. Try a different USB port on same computer. Try a different computer with the same OS (to prevent formatting-related errors)  Here's some general info about the problem:  “My Mp3 player won’t turn on” or “My Mp3 player won’t hold a charge.” (POWER SUPPLY ISSUE) The tricky part about these issues is that there are several possible causes – it could be software or it could be hardware.  Before you try anything else, make sure the mp3 player’s “hold” or “lock” switch is not engaged.  See your user’s manual for location of switch/ instructions (available from manufacturer’s website).  If the hold is engaged, the mp3 player will not charge, and it will not turn on.  Then, make sure the player is plugged into a compatible computer with a USB 2.0 port.  Manylaptops and older desktops lack sufficient power resources to properly power/charge/utilize an mp3 player.  Next, try resetting your mp3 player.  If that still fails, try your device’s “recovery” button. There is a specific button that triggers the recovery mode – volume + for most players, REC button for others, play for others, and skip forward for still others.  The general formula goes something like this, although you may have to substitute another button for “volume +”: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off even if you have to reset the player to turn it off (if it is dead, this won’t be a problem), hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player (even if it is completely dead) - it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. Make sure that your mp3 player is not designed for a country other than your own – this information can be obtained from the manufacturer in most cases.  European and some Asian current systems are different than in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.  If you plug a United States mp3 player into a European wall outlet, you will fry the player.  If you plug a German mp3 player into a US outlet, it will have insufficient power to power the player.  There are transformers available that can correct for this issue. If you have lost the original charger for your mp3 player, try to obtain the original charger.  If the original is no longer available, check your product specs to get EXACTLY the correct voltage.  It may seem harmless to use a 5V charger on a 4.5V mp3 player, but in many cases you will damage the mp3 player by doing this. Also, never unplug an mp3 player while it is transferring music/files/performing a firmware upgrade (and also, never perform these activities when your player is not at least 75% charged).  This is a sure way to kill most mp3 players.  As a safety rule, always check and use the “safely remove hardware” option if it is available on your computer – lower right hand corner (green arrow pointing to chip) in most Windows taskbars.  If it is not available, wait one full minute after your last file transfer to unplug the mp3 player – even if your mp3 player says “OK to disconnect.” If your mp3 player uses AA, AAA, or any type of user-removable battery, you must take extra steps to prevent equipment damage when replacing batteries (most product manufacturers do not know this tip).  Before removing the batteries, power the player off and let it sit for one minute or longer.  Run your hand along the side of your computer tower to dissipate static electricity (or use any other method available to dissipate static electricity).  Use only and exactly the replacement battery recommended by the manufacturer.  Carefully remove the old battery.  Hold and gently squeeze the new battery for a few seconds to dissipate static.  Hold the mp3 player case in one hand, and carefully insert the new battery.  One single static spark, and your mp3 player could be history.  Also, check your product documentation beforehand to see if removing the battery will result in your song’s being erased/data being lost.  Many, if not most, mp3 players do not have replaceable batteries – the manufacturers do not have them, and popping open your mp3 player more often than not causes damage to additional components. If the solutions above do not work, and you have gone through troubleshooting with the manufacturer, you may have hardware damage and the player will need to be replaced. -Tha Mp3 Doctor
