If you're using the AA battery pack, try this.

Use a small screwdriver or other such tool to pry up the metal spring on the back of the battery pack as seen here:

This will give you access to the two small metal prongs underneath. Pry these up as well, as far as you can (see below).

Finally, push the metal spring back down just enough so that a little bump of it appears above the battery pack, like so.

Now power it up and test it out!

Using the soundlink wireless music system. was working fine. suddenly, both aux light and wireless light are on. not getting sound output from PC. how do I turn 'aux' off? pressing the 'sux' button...


Hi,

Simply plug the small USB key into your computer, turn on the SoundLink system and select your music--iTunes, Pandora®, whatever you like. That's it. No networks to configure, no cables to run. And you can control your music using the handy remote.

Remove the battery in the machine and put back. Also, remove the battery in the remote and insert a good battery.

To turn off youe aux simply press the aux botton on your phone i am sure it will work.

Thanks for contacting Fixya

Camera wont turn on/off


I went to another problem, knowing my camera was stepped on, I messed around with moving the lens part around, barley moving it, and then I tried holding the on/off button and the button to take the pics with, and then put in new batteries and it turned on. I would suggest doing that.
