Got wet. Still works? ... Hand me my screwdriver please?
It got wet. Randomly the screen will go on it but it still works. Or sometimes it's just dead, but I plug it into a computer for a while and then it all comes back on. There's no rhyme or reason to it either! Ugh!! I figure something in there is all crusty so I'm going in! Any tips or advice before I do??

You should not opened it up unless you have experience in that field you may accildently ruin something. best bet is to send it back to manufacture to have them fix the ruin parts from water damage. If they refuse try to have target electronics take a look at it they help me out alot. you my also have a dead battery if its rechargable.

Hi, not a solution but that is exactly what is happening to my T10 as well. It just started working this way yesterday and I don't know how to fix it. When I want to change a song, I have to slide the power switch so that I'm nearly turning it off to change a song. As well as that, I can see the 'lock' symbol on my screen even when I don't put my T10 on hold. Someone please help?
hi, this is a very common problem the problem you are having is with the contact between the screen and the circuit board it usually goes like this after it has been dropped or got wet or damp, now the bad news is that the screen will need either replacing or taking out and putting back in correctly.
you could try hitting the mp3 into the palm of you hand to try and shock it back into place how ever if this dont work then the chances are the screen needs replacing due to damaged contact.
now if you have done this type of work before then you can try and repair it yourself if you can get hold of a new screen ( you could try the well known auction site for this part) but if you have never done this before then please leave it to someone who knows as its not the easiest of parts to replace and you could damage the circuit board further by getting it wrong.
the thing you have to work out is if the cost of repair is going to cost more than a new one then is it worth fixing or not, the chances are you could get a decent second hand one for the same price as paying to have this repaired
you may be able to take apart the player and use a hair dryer to completely dry out screen, diodes, and capacitors. if this does not work it will have to be replaced or repaired by tech who will have to replace screen
To remove the LCD screens ribbon cable, the thin black line to the right of the screwdriver tip is the cable clamp, this needs to be gently hinged upwards using a very fine flat blade screwdriver to about 40 degrees, full across the top of the connector working from the ribbon cable side, you will find the cable becomes very loose, and easily removed or reinserted. BUT please take care its delicate !!
