    my mp3 player froze up while I was playing music. actually I was advancing through songs when it locked up.I couldn't turn it off or advance to the next song. I thought I could reset it by hooking it up to the I have a blank blue screen and still can't turn it off. I'm looking for a solution.

Well I had the same problem. I connected my e250 to my comuter (plugging it in on the mp3 player end slightly, not all the way) and it turned on. :)

I have had a jvc GZ-MG130U for a while. The kids have recorded a whole bunch of things and I finally downloaded it to the PC in order to empty the camcorder. But when I started deleting all the files,...

That's a bummer. I have the same camcorder and yesterday 10-3-2010 mine did the same thing. I deleted some files from the file folder located on my camcorder from my computer (which I learned not to do), went to the disconnect device on the computer and it said "safe to disconnect" so I did. The screen on the camcorder said "connecting to device" the whole time I was transferring files to my computer and after my computer said it was safe to disconnect. After it was safe to remove my camcorder, I unplugged the usb cable and tried to turn off the camcorder and nothing happened. I removed the wall charger and battery which finally turned off the camcorder. I then tried to turn the camera on and same thing as you, Everio sign came on and then the screen went blank. Nothing was accessible after turning the power on. One time an error sign appeared saying something like disc broken, need to restore disc to record video. I tried everything, turning on with wall charger and no battery, pushing buttons while it was turning on, holding down buttons, etc. Finally I tried something that made it work. Don't know exactly what I did, but it started working.
Solution: With the power in off position and the battery removed, as well as the wall charger cable removed, I flipped open the screen, opened the lens, connected the wall charger, turned switch to on position and let it run its coarse. It was on for 5 mins or less then shut itself off. I then flipped the switch to off, let it sit for a few minutes and turned it back on, while it was booting up (this part has no logic behind it) I pushed the "plastic" lock buttons for the battery and a screen appeared asking me if I wanted to restore the hard drive. I quickly clicked yes and all is well. The camcorder is back to factory settings but it at least works. Luckily I copied everything before it crashed. The key for the future is to not delete files from the camcorder while it's connected to your computer.
Sorry for the long post, but hopefully it helps.

My Audovox ARWH Bluetooth Mini Bridge got wet with sweat during a long run and I could see moisture inside the over where the display is. I kept it near a small fan to dry for the day. However, since then...

You have to give you device more time to dry out... First off, don't apply any more power to it until you check it again. Salt increases conductivity in liquids so you sweat is worse than dropping it in plain ol water....
You would have to get some non-residual electrical cleaner to clean it up really good (But I would wait till after the first step).

Next, open it up as much as you safely dare. I think I found that the device has a battery built in. [ I would suggest to remove that for now too, but you may not be able to. ] If you know how to discharge a battery with an external drain, I would do that first thing.

Now get a seal-able bag of rice or desiccant (those little white packs that say "DO NOT EAT" found inside of many packaging). Put your device inside the bag and seal it.

Now it is just a massive exercise in patience. I would like to suggest, leave it in there at least a week. I have had what seems to be quicker luck by putting the bag on a window sill. You can give it a few days and replace the rice. That could help speed it up too.

After you can't see any more liquid on the screen, and you have given it a few more days, try it out. Don't give it power at first. If it don't work, it may need a few more days... then try it again. Maybe after that you can try giving it power and trying it again.

If it still don't work, you can try the whole cycle again a few times.
Sad thing is, it MAY be done for already... but, I'm not an easy guys to give up on stuff that easy.

My technica mp3 256mb has stopped working can it be repaired I may have diconnected it from my CP without using safely remove usb device

By not using the Safely Remove option you have done one of two things from the way this sounds. First, you have made the drive a read only and can not write any files to it. Second, the drive is actually broken now and you cant access it at all. I have done this to a few drives myself in the early days. Unfortunately for you, the drive can not be repaired.

N900 freezing and turning off

My advice is to download the latest firmware from Nokia website (which is version PR1.2) and install it through the USB cable provided to you. If this is something you can not personally do, please go to an authorised nokia service point and have this done for you. They should NOT charge you but ask about that before. For the battery removal issue, there is a way to bypass this process. Please press the power on/off switch for about 10 seconds. normally the device will unfreeze and go off without having to remove the battery. wait a few seconds and then you should be able to switch it on again.

thank you :-)

Lacie 1TB External USB Drive tells me to format when I plug it in

I finally found a solution. I used GetDataBack, it was easy to get, I used the usual torrent sites to get it, and it recovers your files from your hard drive if you have problems with it (i.e. can't access it, etc.). I think my problem was caused by pulling out the usb cord without Safely Removing the hardware,
