    I did check the battery terminals and they are ok. I can't see any way to remove the case and I don't know how to clean the board. Any further help you can offer?

Hi, have you checked the battery terminals are not corroded.
If they are ok then it could be that it has either over heated or got damp being in your pocket if this is the case then you will need to remove the case and clean the board to make sure its free from corosion.
If this still dont solve your problem then the most likely cause is going to be a part failing on the board the problem with this is that you cant get them repaired and you cant buy the parts for the board.
Also the cost of repair would be more than the price of a new one so its not financially worth it.

If you have any questions give me a shout back and ill be glad to assist you further ok

    Hi, sorry its been a while but ive been away for the bank holiday and im back online now.
    If the terminals are ok then the chances are their is an internal problem with the board itself the problem is knowbody repairs these as they just cost more than the price of a new one to repair as your problem is internal fault then the best option would beto replace the mp3 player.
    Have you had it long incase you can take it back and get refund or exchange.

Try letting the unit reset by leaving the batteries out at least overnight, then putting in new batteries and powering on the unit.

Most likely cheaper to replace than repair. The labor cost for such a fiddly repair would be more than a new unit.

What does abrupt mean ?


Well, if I shouted at you "what the hell do you want here" at our first meeting, I would be being abrupt (and rude).

If I took you for a car journey and said "look at the pretty birds" and then slammed on the brakes, I would have stopped abruptly.




1.sudden and unexpected:
"I was surprised by the abrupt change of subject".
2.brief to the point of rudeness; curt:
"you were rather abrupt with that young man".
3.steep; precipitous:
"the abrupt double peak of the mountain"

Stopped abruptly won't restart


tThe flywheel is indexed to the crankshaft with a soft aluminum "shear" key, when the blade is stopped suddenly the key is broken instead of the crankshaft. The flywheel will need to be removed and a new key installed. Make sure to clean the shaft and flywheel mating surfaces so they fit tightly or the new key won't last too long.

I was playing cd's in my portable player it stopped and read NO DISC what is wrong with it?


Have you tried different discs andare you geting the same problem? If so sounds like the laser eye is mis-aligned from a abrupt jar or drop or no longer good and needs to be replaced. If its mis-alligned it can be realligned by taking it to a repair shop but may cost more than replacing the unit itself.

My blower motor stopped working, front and back of van.


My rear blower motor stopped working and my Brother took the unit apart. He found out that the fan blade had seized up the unit. After he took out blade and sanded down blades, it worked fine. However, I am not sure about your front unit. Good luck.

My Zen Sleek Photo is a victim of a soda spill


Impurities in the soda (sugars, salt, etc...) can mess up both the electronics and the controls in an electronic device.  Getting the impurities out of the unit is the problem.  One solution I have used successfully with my cellphone (contaminated by sweat):

Remove the battery if possible (definitely turn the unit off!).  Soak the unit in CLEAN (no soap or other additives), warm (not hot) water, swishing it around gently from time to time, for a couple of hours.  If the water turns at all cloudy, replace it with clean water.  Then let the unit dry completely before turning it back on.  This may take several days, putting the unit in front of a dry air source such as a fan, shaking the unit gently from time to time (to move any water pockets around so they dry faster).

It worked on my phone, but my phone has no disk drive.  If it's not working anyway, this may be worth a try.  Good luck!
