This may be a little weird but sometimes to fix the problem you have to try and cause the problem again
sometimes when u drop it something may go out of place
but if u drop it again it may knock it back into place

a more simple solution is to wipe the blue lense on the inside of the disc tray down with a cloth. or try changing the way the system reads the disc instead of standard select Fast and Smooth

White screen on ipod, 2 beeps on restart

I just had this problem as well, i tried everything, so i let it sit here for like a month, while deciding what to do with it. I just found a response today that said if you don't care about losing it try dropping it on the floor a few times, I'm not kidding you that it worked lol. After i dropped it twice I restarted it and the apple logo showed up and works fine now, anyways hope this helps, although i don't know that I'd recommend it for everything it did work for me.

My zen 30 gb player says hard disc problem. reset,re-boot tried all nothing works .have you got any idea to fix problem

With severe Disk problem, put your media player in USB disk mode and use Windows Explorer to attempt to repair it:
Open Windows Explorer -> drive 'Properties' -> Tools -> Error-Cheking -> Check now -> Tick all options -> Start
If errors are detected and repaired, some of the files will now be corrupted and you may need to re-install the firmware or do a 'hard reset'.
ps. If too many errors are detected, I would strongly suggest that you backup your player files to your PCLaptop if possible and re-FORMAT your player hard disk.

Installation ended prematurely because of an error >> office 2003

Firstly is this a copy or original and were you online during install. A copy i cant help with.

However, cd's have the problem of grease or dirty surfaces. and although the underside needs to be clean its the top that you should protect from damage as this is where the data is held. Try taking the cd to the sink and washing it with a drop of washing up liquid and drops of water. wash entire disk and swill with wram not hot tap water. when desoapped, drip dry and dabb onto a clean kitchen cloth. never rub towel onto disk surface. hold disk by finger in centre hole and on disk edges only. ensure entire disk is dry before insertion. Check cd rom drive head is free of hairs fluff etc.

Friend's Durabrand CD566 CD player will NOT load discs whatsoever. When it is turned on, it does the '--' symbol then reads out 'Disc.' Have tried store-bought CDs, still won't work. Have tried EVERYTHING,...

Honestly, here is what I did.

Your cheap-***, WalMart, DuraBrand, cd player will not work...correct? Trust me I know, I bought one for $2 at a gargage sale and realized when I got it home it would not work on ANY cd...not even with fresh batteries.

So.....I carried that beloved POS upstairs to the balcony of my and and dropped it flat on the ground from about 20 FT up. Of course it was dropped on carpet, but it was a good enough jolt to re-align the laser back up so it would read the disk.

My point is, is that the laser is not correctly aligned to read the disk. If a 20 foot drop does not fix it, palm it in your hand and slam it on a book that is laying on the counter. Don't slam it so hard that the poor thing flies to peices, but enough to make it think that "damn...that dude just dropped me off a balcony, what is next? Oh no...not the book slamming thing!".

Either way, the CD is not working. You can jimmy the laser back into somewhat of alignment, but if not, it sure is fun as hell beating it to death.

My ipod has a sad face icon and the famous 5 r's did not take care of my problem.

Unfortunately, it means your iPod's hard drive is severely damaged. Try putting it into disk mode and formatting it with windows, sometimes that'll take care of bad sectors on the drive and MIGHT make it usable again. It's either that or take it back to Apple to have them fix it.
