Question about Sony NW-E507 MP3 Player

Mp3 player stuck on hold

During a workout it got wet w/ sweat, I removed the plastic outer case to allow it to dry out. At that time nothing seemed to function. I did a "reset" and plugged it in the laptop, It did not recognize it. It let it dry overnight, It now is reconized & I can see all the music on "sonic stage". But it is still stuck on hold. No matter how many times I move the mechanisim out of hold & try to advance either a song or a group , no luck. I am currently charging it to see if that does anything different. Any ideas out there? I guess the next stop is back to the Sony store for a fix.

I am having the exact same problem. During a workout it got wet while sweating, I removed the plastic outer case to allow it to dry out but it is still on hold and stuck there. Did anyone figure this out? Sony will exchange it for a refurbished one for $121 or repair it for $101. I only paid $90 for it. I guess I will buy on Ipod next time.

I forgot to insert pot in cooker, fluid ran through the bottom, what do I do?

Just to get this straight-the food to be cooked went directly into the outer body? Liquid ran out of the bottom?

Firstly, be aware that the outer body may be damaged beyond fixing. Assuming that it isn't, the residues of the liquid need to be flushed out or they'll go off and stink your kitchen out. All you can really do is to allow warm water, in fairly small amounts, to flood through the outer body. Hopefully washing out the food contaminants as it goes. When you're happy with the flushing you need to dry the body out. Put it somewhere reasonably warm and be patient, drying out will take a long time. When you're satisfied that it's completely dry, it's time to try using it. Put the pot into the casing and switch on the power. Watch out for any sparks /smoke which would indicate that it's still wet/ dirty and it needs cleaning further.

How to dry a wet cell phone

If a cellphone ever gets wet usually its thought that the cell phone is dead but its not the case if you follow the bellow instruction in case your cell got wet:

Dry out a wet cell phone by taking out the battery and SIM card and placing all of the parts in a zip locked bag or any other plastic bag with uncooked rice for 24 to 48 hours. Avoid putting wet cell phones in the oven, as it may melt the plastic. Remember never turn your phone on before that time or if your phone is wet and its still on then remove the battery immediately that will save your phone.

My kenmore 417 wahser making too much noise, it looks like the inner tub hitting the outer plastic housing. How can I fix it?

Have you tried moving the clothes around in the drum to balance the drum BEFORE you was them? If that works, you have solved the problem! Most people forget that when cloth gets wet it gets heavy so leaving the clothes unevenly placed in the drum dry will make a real problem when they get wet!

I have Bose in-ear headphones with remote. I use them during my workouts and I think the sweat has damaged the remote that's on these headphones. The remote has stopped working and it erratically...

Ayish DX,

If you just want to get rid of the remote control functionality, you could simply replace the cord for your headphones. This may be a little difficult to do, but it is possible. Do keep in mind though that you have purchased a Bose product, and unless they have changed lately, they provide a lifetime warranty on almost all of their products. you may be able to send off for a replacement pair! if this is the case, don't make any modifications at all, as you will void the warranty.

I have a RS 300. I am having problems getting it to read my pulse at the start of a workout. It will pick up others in the workout room. Than about 1/2hr into the workout it starts to work. i replaced...

Please visit my tips and tricks page for reasons why you are not getting a signal. if it takes that long, the number 1 thing to look at is conductivity - so you are either not getting the strap wet enough and takes enough sweat to build up to get a god signal, or it is out of position and takes till you get the strap really wet to make the signal strong enough.

Another thing is turn the watch on, away from other input sources so the watch will key on you, if it is receiving signals from others at the start it will have a hard time knowing which signal to use.

My phone has been switched off for time, and it turned on but for some reason the joy stick isnt working

Hi, if your track ball is not working, it might be because of a buildup of dirt, which obscures the sensor wheels. Cleaning the trackball will fix the problem, and can be done without any special tools or knowledge. After cleaning the trackball, your BlackBerry 8310 should be returned to a good working condition.

  • Lift off the plastic ring around the trackball using the screwdriver. Place the screwdriver under the outer edge of the ring and carefully lift it out. You do not need to use a lot of pressure, as the ring should click out easily.
  • Lift the trackball out of the Blackberry. Raise the white tabs with the screwdriver to lift the ball component out of the trackball. Be sure to keep all pieces safe during this process, as losing one may render the trackball unusable.
  • First, wipe the trackball with a dry cloth to remove the larger particles of dirt. Then, dip the cloth in the cleaning fluid and rub the ball with it. This should lift off any ground-in dirt that has accumulated.
  • Leave to dry for a minute or two, then reverse the removal process. Ensure that the ball lines up with the sensors on the component, marked by the white guides. Click the trackball and the ring back into place. Your trackball should now function properly.
  • Repeat the process once a month, or every time the trackball's performance begins to falter. Trackballs easily pick up dirt and sweat from fingers, which cause them to become clogged. Regular maintenance will help prevent any major damage

My shuffle stopped working when i sweat all over it

Based on your detailed post, I think it's toast. Liquid + electronics + power (repeatedly and attempting to charge it too in this case) usually = toast.
Sorry, you can try to let it dry out (without attempting to charge or power on in a dry environment) for an extended period (a week or so in this case) and then try to charge and power it on again, but it's recommended to do this (and remove the battery when possible) as soon as the liquid contamination is realized.

Motorola S9

Whenever I workout, I sweat from head to toe, and have the same issue, track changing on their own, volume adjusts to minimum by its self. Once this occurs, you can't "re-adjust" the volume, (until they dry out). Other controls don't seem to work either, (pause, forward / reverse tracks). Bottom line, if you workout, if you are like 99% of humans, you will sweat, and if you do, the same thing will happen. I am on my 2nd pair, about to be on my 3rd. Sadly, Motorola was way off when they said these were sweat and water resistant!

Inaccurate/intermittent heart rate info?

Here are the things I have noticed that help:
- enough moisture between the HR monitor and your chest. Apply water right before your workout to make sure it isn't all dry between the time you put on your monitor and when you actually started your workout.
- Make sure the strap is tight enough. Mine gets loose over time and the bouncing of running will give me inaccurate readings until I tighten it up again. You can test if this is the problem by using your hands to press the monitor more tightly against your chest - if that seems to fix the problem that a loose strap could be it.
- Use a "conductive gel" instead of water between the monitor and your chest. Conductive gels are pretty cheap.
