The flickering screen would indicate that the unit is not faulty. Nor is the battery. This happens when the battery is fully discharged. The player does not recognise that the battery is there. Philips released a firmware update to fix this.

Download the update from here:

https://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?slg=ENG&mid=Link_Software&cat=MP3_PLAYERS_CA&sct=HDD_AUDIO_JUKEBOX_SU&session=20080726040453_86.146.31.127&grp=PORTABLE_ENTERTAINMENT_GR&ctn=HDD070/05&dct=FUS&did=ENG&file=/files/h/hdd070_05/hdd070_05_fur_eng.htm

Ideally you need a spare battery so the player can be started up to update the firmware. To remove the battery, undo the screw at the top right of the player and unclick the end cap. The battery plugs into the PCB so is easy to remove.

If you don't have a battery, sometimes unplugging / plugging in the charger & battery can get the player started. Alternatively, you can obtain a battery to update the firmware from www.cheapestelectrical.co.uk

Although they are not on the website, they have a compatible battery (for an HDD1620) which can be used to power up the player to perform the update to v5.2. Then you can switch back to the original.

Go to the "about us" page and contact them directly. I know they have them in stock.

Ask for a HDD1620 battery.

My LN40C530F1FXZA give a massage that the USB 1/2 power overload, new device not found. also none of the HDMI are working. All other components work.


Just do a reset to this set, and then check. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.

Also be careful of jewelry (heavy watches/rings) in between your Bluetooth headphones and phone. They can often interfere and will result in the condition described. As well try ensuring the headphones are fully charged as lack of power can also result in conditions described

I didn,t get instructions with plantronics 230 blue tooth. how do you operate it?


First, make sure it is fully charged, then once it is charged, hold the button down until the light flashes fast, and it may stay on after that. Go into your phone, and Bluetooth menu. New device, or whichever your phone says. Have it search for your bluetooth in range, and once it does, the pass code should be 0000. After that click pair, and it should match them up.
Good Luck, hope this helps.
