Hi, did you make sure that your computer does not hibernate or go into sleep mode during those several hours?

If the computer is not in hibernate or sleep mode, the battery may be reaching its life. If the unit is still in warranty, I recommend getting a replacement. Otherwise, I know FINIS offer an upgrade program for out of warranty products.

I got a problem with the battery of my zte warp..how can i keep it charged at less one day?..it takes 2 hour to stay uncharged


If the battery is new take it back because it is faulty. If not you will have to replace it. When you get a new battery it is advisable to run it completely flat 3 times (ensuring you fully charge it each time) this will give the phone battery a memory and it will last a lot longer. Also go into the menu and turn some of the lighting and time outs down, and if you have battery saver turn it on. Hope this helps you

What's your problem?i got a problem with the battery of my zte warp..how can i keep it charged at less one day?..it takes 2 hour to stay uncharged


If the cell phone battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and graduallythe charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The batteryshows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops offto zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptablecharge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

SwimP3 not holding a charge


Possible that the device was in shelf for sometime and the battery had developed reverse emf. The best thing as a last resort is to drain out totally and recharge for a long time, discharge again and repeat this recharging process for some time. Sometimes it might change the cells to live. I hope my advise will be useful . Good Day

One earpiece is sounding scratchy


Typically the Swimp3 player sounds great right out of the package. In fact we've had many customers who have used it successfully for years. Like all electronics though, sometimes there is simply a problem.

Your new player is backed by the manufacturer's 90 day warranty. You can contact the store or website for an exchange or contact Finis directly to get a warranty replacement. http://www.finisinc.com/Contact/

I charged my swimP3 but it won't turn on when disconnected from the computer.


The Swimp3 Player does need to be charged for at least 3 hours for the best experience. Here are some tips that could help solve your problem:

Problem: The player doesn't turn on.

Suggestion: Charge the battery in the player for at least three hours, this will allow it to fully charge. You can charge it by plugging it into the USB port on your computer or by using a USB wall charger (sold separately). If you do choose to use a computer to charge it, be sure your computer is turned on. If there is no power to the computer, then no power is going to the USB port to charge the Swimp3 player.

Additional Tip: The charging answers are in the Green Indicator Light.

If the green light is flashing off and on, then your SwiMP3 player is charging

If the light is solid green, the SwiMP3 player is fully charged

If you have no green light - then it is not receiving a charge - check the connection, make sure its plugged in properly, or check to see that there is power from the computer or USB wall charger.



Problem: I have charged my player, the light is solid green, but no music plays.


Suggestion 1: Have you loaded music onto the player? Try adding a few mp3 or wma files and test it again.

Suggestion 2: If the power is on, you loaded music, clicked the Play button and no music comes out, press and hold the RESET button for 4 seconds. It's kind of like rebooting your computer when it crashes. Many times a simple reset clears up any challenges.



If that doesn't work, then it could be the

* volume

* incompatible files or

* folders




Volume: On some units the factory volume setting is very low.

Solution: Try turning up the volume by pressing and holding the "+" PLUS button. If you click the "+" button it changes the song, pressing and holding the button will actually control the volume. And if its too loud, press and hold the "-" MINUS button to bring the volume back down.





Incompatible Music Files: If you have loaded a music file that is not compatible, it simply won't play. The SwiMP3 player works with mp3 or wma files, but not aac (like from iTunes).

Solution: Remove the incompatible files. Convert your other music files to mp3 or wma, and if you are importing your songs direct from itunes, you'll need to convert them to mp3s first.



Incompatible NON-Music Files: An MP3 player is similar to a Thumb Drive or Flash Drive because it can hold any kind of file that will fit in the drive's capacity. However, if you have loaded an incompatible file - including JPEGs, Cover Art, Word Docs, anything that is not an MP3 or WMA file, the player simply can't translate it into music.

Solution: Remove the incompatible files, leaving only your mp3 or wma files in your root directory.



Folders: The mp3 player is not able to open folders and play music files stored inside, to the Swimp3 player the folder is simply an un-playable file.

Solution: Open the folders, move or copy the music files into the root directory (remember, mp3 or wma - not aac), then delete the folders.

After I have used my swimp3 (fully charged) once it is no longer charged the next day and I have to recharge it. why does it die after only one use - am I not turning it off properly? Thanks Suzi


Suzi,

Depending on which model Swimp3 you have, the battery life may vary. At the most you should expect about 6 hours of play time before it needs to recharge.

One mistake we have had customers make is they plug it in to the computer to recharge, but then cut off the power to the computer. If you are using the computer to recharge your Swimp3 Player you will have to leave the computer power on.

Once you disconnect it you will have to press and hold the power button for 3 seconds, the green light will flash fast 3 times and then turn off. If the light is still on, the player is not off.

An alternative option would be to use a USB Wall Charger to charge the Swimp3. If you swim daily, its an easy thing to just pop it in the charger before you go to sleep (just make sure it is dry before you plug it in).

If you find this solution doesn't work, you may want to try resetting the player by pressing and holding the RESET button.

I hope this helps with your Swimp3.

Good Luck

USB connector problem


It shouldn't be a problem. Check the SwimP3 V2 FAQ website. It says:

Q: The cap that covers the USB port on my SwiMP3 came off during my swim, will this damage my player? A: No, the SwiMP3's USB port is completely waterproof, the cap is there to keep the USB port generally dry so you wont have to dry it by hand before connecting it to your computer.
