Question about Toshiba Gigabeat MEGF40S MP3 Player

1 Answer

Battery Problem My Gigabeat suffered a minor impact and now will not hold a charge (it turns on if plugged in, but the battery charging signal does not appear onscreen and it won't turn on if unplugged). I would rather risk breaking it and have to buy a new one(or more likely something else) trying to repair it than drop $140 to their service department to do it.

The gigabyte doesn't turn on when i press or hold the on button?

Check the power adapter for DC out with a voltmeter - it's suppose to charge the battery. If it's not producing the voltage, then it won't charge the battery.

Frozen screen on Gigabeat S30

I left the Gigabeat on until the battery ran out. It then turned itself off automatically and allowed me to re-charge the battery. When I turned the Gigabeat on, it again worked perfectly,

Gigabeat Will Not Turn On - Battery Flashes Then Goes Dead

have you only been charging it with the usb cable?
try plugging it into a ac adaptor, (make sure the button is in the off position at the bottom)
and it should hopefully restart, then turn it to the on when it's loaded, and leave it plugged in till it's completely charged

that might work

There is a little battery cut of switch at the bottom of the device. You can unbend a paper clip and switch it off. Then switch it back on after a few seconds. Plug it back into the usb cable to charge it. It should work ok now.

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.

Gigabeat frozen!

Hi Lorna, Yeah I found my Gigabeat froze a few different times when I was getting used to it. Solution: at the bottom of player there is a little battery on/off switch - its tiny and black but you would have needed to switch it on to first use it. Well turn it off here for 10 seconds and the on again. This removes all power from the hard drive and circuits which occassionally freeze. Hope that helps
