Hey Kayla,

I had the same problem. What happened is i left mine in my car while i was working. This was not the first time either and when i got out of work in the late afternoon i noticed my sansa's wheel was incredibly hard to turn. I went home and searched for solutions and found your very same problem. I went downstairs and found that my dad had a pressurized can of Super Lubricant. 1 small, quick shot directly onto the wheel top and button got the spray lubricant on there good and i just wiped the excess lubricant into the wheel seams. Immediately start turning the wheel in either direction (try to switch back and forth) and it'll start to spin freely. The Heat of an enclosure like your purse or my car in the sun dries out lubricants just like the lube sansa applies in their factories to these products so just try this and tell me how it worked for ya if you still have it.

Sincerely,
Ben (belmont1@gmail.com) ( :

P.S. stop applying alcohol. That's more of a cleaner and all it will do is temporarily fix the glide sticking problem while simutaneously drying it out. Bad method...go with your every-day spray-lube.

Keeps restarting itself


Sadly, some batteries will wear-out within a certain amount of months, and some may go even greater lengths until they will require replacement. This is one thing many people may not know when they are charging their device: Devices that use internal rechargeable batteries also use extra memory to know the charge limit point. So if you charge your the battery the device must know when to stop so the battery wont over heat and be damaged. This memory used to charge your battery can also be confused and malfunction, so that the device wont get proper power supply from the battery. This malfunction will usually occur when you plug in your device and use it at the same time or if you charge your device at random moments instead of letting it get to it's lowest power point then charging it again. I suggest that you let the device die fully, then let it rest for a few days, then while you charge it, have it off instead of on, that way the charge wont interfere with the screen info and let it charge as long as it is said to take on the manual that came with the device. If this fails, try 2 more times,if no luck after, have the company change your battery, dont try to change it yourself if it's bulit in, because some batteries require soldering a similar technique to welding something together, you can do this your self if trained, but you may also void a warranty if you have one with the device. If you'd like anymore info on your device leave a message for us at Game-Shabang official on Facebook, thank you

Why does my iPod keeps turning itself on when I lock it?


iPods have no traditional on/ff switch. They power up with the slightest touch, which makes turning the iPod on as simple as touching the menu. Turning the iPod off, however, can be more tricky. Waiting for automatic shut off wastes battery life, and surfing the menus yields no way to stop the device from running. Turning off the iPod Nano, though, is almost as simple as turning it on.

Locate the "hold" or "lock" switch at the top of your iPod Nano. It will be located on the top of your device on the left side. Make sure the device is unlocked. When the device is locked, an orange bar is visible. When it is unlocked, that bar is not visible. The iPod needs to be unlocked in order to power off. Locate the "play/pause" buttons. These are located at the bottom of the control wheel. Press at the "play/pause" section of the wheel and hold for a few seconds. Your iPod will power off. Do not touch the wheel again after powering off, as this will power the device back on. Locate the "hold" or "lock" switch again. Slide the bar to the locked position so that the orange bar is visible. This will prevent your iPod from powering on in your purse or pocket and wasting battery time.

"your subscription tracks have ended" but i paid my monthly fee and plugged it in!


It seems that the music store only accepts certain kind of mp3 players but also some accounts are closed down if there is no activity on that account for a certain time. I am pretty sure its more than a month though. I would give them a call.

Sorry my solution could not be much help.

Rio forge 512mb problem.


When this happens to me (it does every few months), I re-flash the software following the instructions that come with it. Then the annoying "upgrader" message goes away for another few month. I use version 1.33 in my 512 forge.
