Question about Toshiba gigabeat S MP3 Player
My toshiba s will not turn on or off. It reads contact manufacturer for repair with a yield sign with the number 5 reading inside the yield sign. Is there any solutions you can offer.
The hard drive became disconnected. I took out all of the screws to the outer case (5), gently slid cover down until the small ribbon connector for the power buttons is exposed, unclip and remove. Set aside back of unit (at this point the hard drive might come with it if the ribbon has come out of the back) at the top there is a two screw metal bracket that covers the ribbon connection for the hard drive. Remove the ribbon from the main unit and gently force it back into the hard drive ribbon connector. once fully seated you can reinsert the other end, replace the two screw bracket in a way that holds the ribbon down. Slide the backing back far enough to reinsert the power buttons ribbon connector and then test it before you throw in those last 5 screws.

Hey i got that same message when i dropped it from my hand yesterday while getting in my car. it said the same thing with a yield sign... i really thought that the hard drive was prolly damaged cuz of hitting the cement floor hard from 2 meters up. then i took it in my hand n give it a hard shake and hit it in my hand and then it started working fine :D
now mine works good.
hope that helps!
