Keeps repeating


You can simply "set the repeat mode" to OFF:

1. Play the song.
2. Tap the now playing screen.
3. On the Now Playing screen, you will now see play and volume controls at the bottom of the screen. At the top is track information. Under the album title is a scrubbing bar that indicates the time remaining in the song.
4. A small icon that looks like two circular arrows is on the left side below the scrubbing bar. Tap this icon once to repeat the album. The icon will turn blue when repeat is activated.
5. Tap the icon again to repeat the current song. The icon will change to show the number 1 inside a blue circle.
6. Touch the icon a third time to cancel any repeat. The icon will turn white when it's deactivated.

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.

My ipod touch wont turn on, it shows the little pple symbol on the screen, then flashes white, blacks out, and the apple appears again. I've pressed all the buttons to try to get it to work, but it keeps...


try holding the menu button and the power button for about 20 secs. this will cause it reset, if this method doesn't work, then hold down the menu button, connect it to a PC then hold down the power button, if you have Itunes installed on your computer, it will alert you that it detects an Ipod in recovery mode, basically after that it'll attempt to fix your problem, and it will be able to turn on again.

3rd generation wont turn on


Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step. Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.


Hope this helps :)
