Question about Toshiba gigabeat MES60VK Digital Media Player
I had my 60gb gigabeat plugged into the computer (when I plugged it in it wasn't on the main menu (not sure if that matters or not) ) and then when I disconnected it (and I am sure that it said it was 'Connected' when I unplugged it) it turned itself off.
When I tried to turn it on again it only flashed white for a split second, then went black with only the empty battery symbol in the bottom right corner. This only lasts maybe a second or less than, but after the symbol has been shown for a fraction of a second it then goes completely black.
I have tried plugging it in to the computer but it still does nothing! I have even tried turning the battery on and off again but to no avail.
Can someone please help me! I really really don't wont it to be dead!! Is there anyway I can fix it?
This happens when the Gigabeat battery is run down too far. The only hope is to charge it with the AC charger.
If you don't have one, you can probably get something adequate. The standard adaptor is p/n ADP-15HH, 5V 3A output, center positive, take the unit with you and match the connector - I don't have a useful ruler handy.
If you do not have or cannot get an adaptor, try plugging the device into a USB port and wait at least a day, no kidding. If you can get the port to kick in fir high current, it may come back to life. My Ubuntu box has done it once, as a test.
You can only avoid this by charging the Gigabeat before it runs down too much. This is the real weakness of the Gigabeat, IMHO. That and the problems they get losing the firmware, but that's another topic.
You can sometimes find chargers on eBay, but you will have to pay a little...
