Question about Samsung SGH-X830 Cellular Phone

Picture and mp3 problem

My phone wouldn't display my pictures and wouldn't play mp3 music. I can't even take pictures or record videos anymore. It says unsupported file. I saw a solution on this site but it would wipe all music and images. What causes this problem? Any other solutions which would save the existing files?

Oh i see what you have to do is type this password in on the home screen not when it asks you for the password... just type in your fone *2767*6263# and your fone will turn off, leave it for a minuite and turn it back on and there you go problem solved =]

Problem solver code for "multimedia blind" SGH-X830 is: *2767*6263#

Wish you luck and full backup before you try it...

Yes I tried to connect through Samsung PC but it keeps saying "server is busy", I think due the above mentioned problem, I guess nothing will connect or work until I use the "master reset"

You might need to do a master reset or software reinstall on your phone. YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR DATA. so you need to backup everthing from the phone to PC via USB data cable and samsung PC SYNC.

or simply copy the contacts from PHONE to SIM if they are the only important thing you need from the phone (sim capacity supports 200 numbers max)

Unsupported media format or bit rate over

Unsupported media format - we generally get this error on playing the media files like music or video.
This is because the format is not supported by the phone.
See the phone specification or the manual for supported formats.

MP3, AAC, AAC+, e-AAC+, WMA, AMR, WAV these are the formats supported by your phone for music
you can download a free converter and convert the format to above mentioned and keep the bit rate at 128kbps for a descent quality and you wouldn't get the bit-rate error.

MPEG4/H.263/H.264/WMV are the videos format supported by your phone.

I have a UTStarcom Shuttle. I am trying to play to play music

Put a microSD memory card (limit 4GB) in the phone. Take a few pictures and make a short video .Use the phone menu to transfer the pictures an video to the external memory card. Use the media player to watch your recorded video. Try to play music and you will get a no content found message. Now, turn off the phone, remove the memory card and place it into an adapter that will connect to a computer by usb port. Windows should recognize it as a removable drive. If you look at that drive in Explorer you will see 3 folders. Pictures are in my_pix. Videos are in my_flix. Transfer .mp3 files to the my_music folder. When you put the card back into the phone you can play the mp3 files with the media player. Yes, I did this and it works.

Krave Camera Not Working

mine had the same problem.
go into memory under settings and (if you have a card) move some pictures/videos/music/sounds to the card from the phone memory.
if you don't have a card, try deleting a few pictures/videos/music/sounds from your phone memory.

hope this helps!

i) u download either videos, mp3 music and games from internet and save it to ur computer, then u copy them on to  memory card of your phone....

Unable to playback downloaded music on the cellular phone


The reason why it doesn't play is probably related to the file format of your music files. Make sure they are 128-192 kbps MP3 files.

Razr Music From Comp to Phone

The cell come with music convertor. You can drag & drop with the softwate mp3 file into the phone. Another option is to copy directly mp3 file into the phone as a file, try to play it.
