Question about Cowon System iAUDIO X5 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Gets stuck at the loading screen, also a lack of battery life.

Hi there, so i have the 60GB X5. and first things first.
It was working PERFECTLY yesterday, nothing wrong with it at all, it hasnt been dropped, or whacked or anything what so ever.
I got back in my dorm room from my easter holiday, and now the thing just wont do anything.
It loads up
and it gets stuck at the "Digital Pride COWON" screen straight after the little water wavey type scene.
But yet, if i connect it to my laptop, then i can mess around with all of the files and do what i want . . . . hmmm interesting?
although I will say that the screen goes white when connected to my laptop, as opposed togoing to the "connected" screen.
and last but not least, my battery life is appaling.
I broke the charger sometime ago so i now have to charge through one of them USB plug socket things, but i have always had a short battery life with this, if im lucky i will get 2 hours out of it.
Whats the problem guys? I dont want to lose 40gig of music for the second time in my life, i think i would actually cry.
thanks in advance people

I had the same problem, try to reset it or, if you got rockbox built in try to turn it on and off, i don't know if you might have 2 sides to your mp3 player but try that out, and definitely buy a new battery, they sell it most likely at any electronic store...the wires should be plugged in inside and if not try to connect them inside: connect them as this red, black, and red if you do that it should solve your problem

Welcome to Fixya.

I see that you're having boot issues, here are some other things that you can try :
  • Ensure that the computer is turned off
  • Unplug/disconnect all USB connections
  • Unplug the ac adapter cable
  • Carefully remove the battery
  • Press and hold down on the power button for at least 10 seconds
  • Connect the ac adapter without the battery
  • Turn on the computer
If the above procedure works,then you may reconnect all devices once the computer is up and running. Otherwise, I am recommending a full operating system re install.

I hope this helps, Thanks for using Fixya.

Is there a battery life indicator in canon sd700is


I had a look at a review of the camera and also could not find the battery life indicator.
Even with all the icons present on the screen there is no battery icon.
It thus looks if the SD700 lacks a battery indicator.

Kind regards!!

Life fitness recumbent bike problem

We had exactly the same thing. If you take the covers off you will find a black battery pack in the bottom. It is about the same size as a cordless drill battery. We got a replacement from Maplins - cost about £10. It works perfectly now.

I believe that the hard drive has been damaged. replace it with a new one ( I did it with a 60Gb) and get the os files from the br website. Connect drive to your computer via usb or other means and copy files after extracting on your pc. Should be good to go.

What I need is a burner for mine.

Frozen Screen

I had this problem and the only way to solve a frozen screen is to let the unit run out of battery and bring it back to life. Battery will die out on you for 6~8 hours. Once battery is dead you must do the following.

Waking up your c330...

If you left your Garmin c330 on running the battery will have 1% life left. If you turn c330 back on again, it will flash screen for 3 seconds then die, even charging it at this point will not wake it back up. TO BRING IT BACK TO LIFE... plug in the power home or car into Garmin c330. There is a tab in the front Garmin gray frame of your screen. You must take like your fingernails and under the logo "GARMIN" pull the whole gray plastic frame off. Underneath the plastic frame to the right hand side. There is a "RESET" button. Make sure power is plugged in while hitting reset. Your battery should come back to life. Cheers

How long dose it take

it don't take long, it depends on the file size you are putting into it, otherwise it might take a while based on that, or the amount of file you have in it, if it takes a while scrolling and you get a hour glass on your computer screen wait until it all loads up and it should work perfectly for you
