MP3 player/s no sound or control of device

Hi. i have had this player for a while. For some reason, every time i turn the thing on, it says error 2 (ERR 2 as stated on the device display) on the screen instead of MEM 16, like usual, when the track starts, there is no sound. i can not control the sound volume level, nor can i use any of the functions of the player (like changing the track, using the mode and tone buttons or the stop button). what happened and how can i fix it so i can enjoy this player?

Every 4 weeks my mp3 player gives me a message saying " File System Error". It doesn't go away for at least 2 months. How do I fix this problem?

Hi There

I can understand your issue. This issue might occur due to two reasons,
1) May be the songs which you have might now supported or corrupted
2) If this is happen for all songs, then its problem with MP3 player itself.

If its first reason, then try deleting the song and play it
If its second reason, then please format the device.

Please revert if any clarifications.

My mp3 keeps saying file system error when i turn it on.

Hi There.

I can understand the issue.
When you say getting file system error while you turn on the device, Possible cause would be device was not formatted properly or may be you would have unplugged the device in improper way (i.e) SAFELY REMOVE HARDWARE.

Do one thing. Please connect the device to the computer and check whether do u see green color arrow on the system tray.
If u see the arrow mark, right click on the icon and choose the option properties.
Then update the MTP drivers..Then try turning ON the device..
If still you face the same issue kindly revert..

Player Problem, Connect to PC, Start Device Manager

Sounds like one or more system files have been deleted or corrupted on the player, possibly by formatting the player from windows.

Install and run the Philips Device Manager and select the Repair / Restore option. Follow the on-screen prompts.

This will format the device and re-load the system files.

ALL FILES WILL BE DELETED FROM THE DEVICE. Back up files before restoring.

My Ali mp3 player is not recognized

(windows xp) Open the Device Manager in the Control Panel, locate the Audio Player/MTP Device (should be under Portable Devices).
Right click it and select Update Driver and select the option to browse manually, press Next and select Choose Manually from a list.
Once there you should have two lists (one with manufacturers and one with devices).
The ALiCorp manufacturer should be chosen by default, if not try to locate it (if it does not exist you need the drivers!)
Important! select USB MASS STORAGE DEVICE from the Device list and NOT AUDIO PLAYER / MTP DEVICE!
Press next/install and let it finish, now you should be able to transfer mp3 files to you audio player using your favorite sync software or manually dragging the files in to the correct device in the my computer folder.

The names for the buttons etc may not the correct as my OS language is not english and I assume you have some basic understanding of computers, this solutuion worked for me and some friends who also bought ALiCorp mp3 players (they are really cheap)
This may also work with other storage devices.

A problem I have also had is the FILE SYSTEM error when trying to play songs, I fixed this by changing the battery to an older one (my mp3 player hates new batteries for some reason)

The best thing you can do to avoid things like this is get a proper mp3 player and dont buy this cheap ****, save up cash for a proper one with USB rechargnig as it will save you money in the long run, stay away from alicorp since everything they make is total **** and incompatible with everything (personal experience).

Hope this helps people and sorry for the english but it is my third language.

Synching problems....someone please help

Hi Nikki. Seems like the Operating System (is it Windows XP?) may have encountered errors loading the native drivers for your player when in MTP mode, or the Windows Media Player version on the PC your plugging your player in is Windows 9 or below. The minimum requirements of the M240 is Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Windows Media Player 10 or above. Falling short of this minimum requirement may cause your player not to be properly recognized. But assuming that the PC you're using the player with meets all the requirements, try to re-load the native driver by plugging your player to the PC and doing the following: Step 1: Right-click on the "My Computer" icon, then select "Manage". This will open the "Computer Management" window. Step 2: Left-click on "Device Manager" If your player is currently in MTP mode, then try this: (1) Left-click in "Windows Portable Device". You should find your M240 indicated there. Check for an error indicator on the left side of that icon. The error indicator would be yellow-colored icons displayed as "!" or "?" (2): Right-click on the M240 and select "Scan for hardware changes" or "uninstall". Both would have the same effect If your player is currently in MSC mode, then try this: (1): Left-click in "Universal Serial Bus Controller". You should find a "Mass Storage Device" there (make sure that the M240 is the only device plugged in to your PC at this time). Check for an error indicator on the left side of that icon. The error indicator would be yellow-colored icons displayed as "!" or "?" (2): Right-click on the "Mass Storage" and select "Scan for hardware changes" or "uninstall". Both would have the same effect Step 3: Unplug your M240 and plug it back in. This would force Windows to re-load the driver. 90-99% of the time, it would re-load the native drivers correctly. I hope this works.
