Question about Toshiba Gigabeat S30 MP3 Player

1 Answer

WON'T CHARGE OR POWER ON

I HAVE A GIGABEAT S30 THAT I LET SIT IN MY CLOSET FOR ABOUT 3 MONTHS. I PULLED IT OUT THE OTHER DAY AND IT WAS DEAD SO I PLUGGED IT IN TO MY USB PORT ON MY COMPUTER AND IT WONT CHARGE. THE BATTERY SYMBOL AT THE BOTTOM JUST COMES ON AND OFF ABOUT EVERY MINUTE OR SO. I ALSO TRIED MY RAZOR CELL PHONE CHARGER BECAUSE IT IS USB ALSO AND STILL NOTHING. I HAVE MIS-PLACED THE WALL CHARGER SO I WAS TRYING TO GET AWAY WITH NOT HAVING TO BUY ONE. WILL IT ONLY CHARGE WITH THE WALL CHARGER? OR IS THE BATTERY POSSIBLY BAD? I WOULDN'T THINK IT WOULD GO BAD JUST SITTING IN A DARK CLOSET THOUGH. PLEASE HELP ME SALVAGE IT.

The gyropter will not charge when I plug it in

Hi,
Check the charger adaptor if it has any output power. If no power comes out replace the adaptor.
Check also the battery terminal, it might already corrode and needs clean up.
If all does not work, the battery in the helicopter is already malfunctioning.

hope that helps you out!

MES60VK Gigabeat - Dead

There is a switch on the bottom left side of the dock connector of the player. Flick the switch to the right and it should work. The switch is the battery cutoff switch. It is there so it will charge only. I have no idea why Toshiba though this was a good idea, but they put it there.

New battery and still wont work...

There is a little switch on the bottom of the Gigabeat (just to the left of the mini usb port on it).

Put a pin into the little dimple in the switch and make sure its pushed all the way over towards the USB port.

Cannot view Gigabeat s30 as a drive letter (e.g. D,E etc)

Hey JayMac, Your s30 is not possible to map it to a drive letter. The reason ? cause your s30 and the other brothers of your mp3 are MTP class mp3's. Meaning that they are Media Transfer Protocol mp3's, so you can only transfer media files. If your mp3 player would be a USB Mass Storage Device, like alot of other mp3's, well you would've been able to recover you're files. But until now, the answer is no you can't recover the files just becauses of that stupid invention of Microsoft, the MTP.
