Question about Toshiba gigabeat MES60VK Digital Media Player

1 Answer

MES60V suddenly stopped charging.

I didn't use it much, but one day before a trip, I plugged in the factory charger and it showed the deep blue "Gigabeat" screen for about ten seconds and then a yellow triangle with number 5 in it came up and it said to "Contact manufacturer for repair" message. I've tried contacting Toshiba and they don't even list the model any more on the Gigabeat site. I don't know what the Error 5 is for. I have managed to get a blank screen and the battery symbol on it by putting charger on it and hitting the top button ( I forgot what it does now) on the side after resetting it with the battery on/off switch with a paper clip. It showed about 60% charge when the symbol showed. It looks like it's charging, but I can't tell.

If it charges, I'll let you know, otherwise, what is error 5 and why return it to manufacturer?

Download, and install the firmware. It should work after that. It might of formatted the storage partition of the device, but you can resync it after you update the firmware on the device. You can get the firmware here: Gigabeat S Firmware.

I cannot charge both my dysons. Working perfectly yesterday but not today. I think it maybe the battery charger


The manual for the DC27 can be found here (
https://www.dyson.co.uk/medialibrary/Files/Dyson/Support/downloads/UK/floorcare/Manuals/dc27_uk_manual_alf_120710%20pdf.pdf ) but is not so helpful in deep troubleshooting outside of looking for blockages.

I'm a little confused since you're talking about battery chargers, but this is posting under Dyson DC27/DC28 assemblies, which are both plug into the wall uprights. Are you possibly in the not-quite-right section? If so, reply with your model numbers and that may make things go a bit easier.

In general though, if you have dyson rechargables that both suddenly stop working, the charger is likely the issue. Look at the electrical contacts for both the batteries and the charger, and make sure they are clean (unplug cherger before touching anything, start, if possible, with compressed air to blow lint and such out). Check that the cord for the charger is not damaged, and that your wall outlet hasn't tripped a breaker or a GFI reset.

Good Luck!

Red blinking light


Hi, Ephraim. The flashing red light indicates that the device is showing "low battery". It could be that the LG phone charger fits the charging port on your bluetooth headset but it is not compatible with your device. In order for you to know that it is charging, the device should show a steady red light(means charging).
Please take a look at the table reference below.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
•With the Charger Plugged In

Steady red ---------------------------------Attempting to connect

Note: After 20 minutes on a call or of inactivity, the light stops flashing to conserve power, but the headset remains on

Hope that'll help you in some way.

The charge adapter maybe faulty.
If your cell phone is a few months old, then it would be still under warranty. Take it back to the place where you purchased it and have it repaired or replaced under warranty.

The green light on your charger indicates a full charge but you know thats not right since you didn't charge the batteries when they were in storage they have dropped so low the charger cannot detect them and provide a charge. The batteries will need to be replaced with new ones. Charge before use and charge for at least 20 days to get them operating at 100% now you will have to use it for those 20 days to get the batteries used to charging charge every night when you go to bed and unplug when you get up in the morning. If you do have to leave the chair for a week or so put up fully charged and charge once a week overnight. If you put the chair in storage again disconnect the batteries from the chair and store with a full charge. Hope this helps you

Kind of vague. It could be the port on your laptop where the charger plugs into. It could be bad, or could have a bad connection to the motherboard due to use or manufacturing defect. When the charger stops charging then it has to use the battery power. This morning the battery may have had a low charge causing the laptop to shut down. Did you notice the battery's power level before it shut down? If you are wiggling the end of the charger that is plugged into your laptop to get it to start charging again, then that is most likely your problem. Do not wiggle it , for it could fry your motherboard. If that is the case then that port needs to be re-soldered.

Hi,

If you have multimeter then check the output voltage of the charger, if charger is not working then replace it, if charger is working then there must be a problem with mother board, try to contact some reliable repairing engineer.

Ds lite suddenly stopped working


The orange light goes off when the battery has been charged to its highest capacity. After every charge, the batteries capacity is decreased. Get a new battery, that should do it.
