    When we first received the mix clip player we charged it with the USB port on the computer and my daughter LOVED listening to her clips, but when the battery ran down and we tried to re-charge the battery NOTHING happens when we plug it into the USB port.

    I have the same problem with mine, although with mine I don't see any way to unplug the battery from the board to charge the battery. Any help is appreciated!!

I have seen this problem before with these units. It is generally caused by not following instructions when disconnecting the unit from the usb cable. The software interrupts the charge port signal between the battery and the dci processor. The unit will function just fine and nothing will seem wrong until the battery runs out completely. There is a simple fix for this but it is not necessarily an easy one.

1. Take apart the case of the unit. The easiest approach to this is to carefully pry apart the case at the sd card port with a small prying tool or butterknife. Take care with the large clips at the ends and corners of the unit that hold it together. You will most likely break every one of the smaller case clips on the sides when the case comes open. This is fine. The case will still hold together very strong with only the larger end clips. Remove any broken side clip pieces before putting the case back together so the case will close snug and tight.

2. With the case apart, note where the battery connects to the board and unlug it. Find a small ac adapter of about 5.5 volts to 9 volts but with no more than 600 milliamps output voltage. This will need to have a recessed tip on the male adapter prong like the one pictured in this url--- http://www.elderly.com/images/accessories/ACC/PS200R.jpg --- If you have technical knowledge in electronics and the right equipment then you can use an adjustable power supply with stinger tips to penetrate the battery plug. Note on the picture that the back of the adapter tells whether the positive or negative is located inside or outside the tip. BE SURE NOT TO CROSS THE LEADS WHEN TAPPING INTO THIS CONNECTION TO CHARGE THE BATTERY!!! Once the battery has died completely and the system becomes unresponsive the dci processor and charge port resets automattically but will not charge with out some power on the battery and since the battery is completely dead you must charge it for a moment in order to get the unit to acknowledge the reset and start taking a charge on it's own. on the battery red is positive. Connect the battery leads to the adapter using small wire leads for 30 secs. Replug the battery into the units board and turn on. the unit will power up and a message will come on screen stating that the battery is low and to recharge it.

3. Immediately reassebmle units case carefully and plug in the unit to a charger/usb cord. When unit fully charges ...unplug. That's it! (NOTE: IF YOU CHARGE THE UNIT USING A USB CABLE YOU MUST CLICK THE ICON IN THE SYSTEM TRAY THAT ALLOWS YOU TO SAFELY REMOVE THE UNIT AND THEN DISCONNECT OR YOU WILL SOON BE REPEATING THE ABOVE STEPS!!!)

I had the same problem with my mix max. I used the solution posted here by coreyjroman, except I just used a 9volt battery for my power source. I hooked up wire to the pos and neg sides of the battery and then plugged the other ends into thier respective sides of the mix max units battery pack plug. I charged it for 30 seconds and hooked it all back up like he said and it works just great! Thanks for the help! I hope my suggestion works for others too.

What are the "wire leads" you guys are talking about?

**"Connect the battery leads to the adapter using small wire leads for 30 secs"
**"I hooked up wire to the pos and neg sides of the battery"

what type of wire is that? where can I buy it? If you know, please be super specific because I'm am almost completely useless when it comes to stuff like this, but my daughter really loved her Disney Mp3 player and she's really sad it doesn't work anymore.

Thanks so much!

Wow thanks very much for the tips. I went with 9volt battery as well and it worked great. I was just about ready to scrap this player as the manufacture DigiBlue had advised it was out of warranty and there was nothing they could do and they offered no service. This was a great tip and saved my daughters player. Thank you very much!!!

Purchased with paypal through credit card Android charge cables. CC statement shows "DOMINANTMED" with phone 402-935-7733. Not received. No word. Who are they?


probably--- but fortunately you used paypal to do the purchase
ring paypal direct and find out how to get your money back, and tell them what you have done to contact the seller and the lack of response from them
I cannot see how a current would flow through a magnet as the fields of the magnet would affect the current flow
any way it is part of the paypal policy to help you to recover from ripoff merchants

Marantz how to connect 6005 amplifier to ipod


There are many solutions, I show two. The tip photo, shows a more expansive one. the lower photo the cheaper one. But both have two tulip plugs on the side for the amplifier and one 3,5 mm stereo telephone plug to the other side.
I tried both on a good stereo set, and could not hear different quality in sound. My guess, the quality comping from my iPods, iPhone and iPad is not the same as from my CD player. On the CD player, a better cable proved to give a better sound.

It wont turn on, it shows 'push power protect' when you turn it on, or disconnect it and reconnect, i already attempted to disconnect the Sony Stereo MCH-EC909iP Mini Hi-Fi and it shows 'Push Power, P


The only thing I can think of is its goin into protection mode like an amplifier would, you maxed the volume out and it's protecting your speakers or you don't have the right voltage going to it, I can see you don't have it on a straight 120v plug and you might have the wiring wrong on the speakers to it might be too low of a ohm or too high

My ipod is just playing without the sound carrying through to the speakers. I dont know how to make it work?


Verify there is nothing plugged into the headset port, including headsets, headphones, or adapters.
Original iPhone only: While on the Home screen, adjust the volume buttons. If you see the icon below, indicating that headphones are attached, there may be debris in the headset port:



To remove debris in the headset port, try connecting a pair of headphones to the headset port and then remove the headphones. Repeat this several times.
If you have paired with a Bluetooth headset that is nearby, either use the headset or turn Bluetooth off (choose Settings > General > Bluetooth).
If that doesn't work, try restarting the iPhone. Hold the Sleep/Wake button until "slide to power off" appears. Slide to power off your device. When it is off, press the Sleep/Wake button to turn it back on.
If restarting the iPhone doesn't resolve the issue, try restoring the device.
