Question about Rio Sport S30S MP3 Player

1 Answer

Stuck It is stuck on a display screen that says upgrader, and it will not respond to anything that I push on it. I have tried connecting it to the computer and trying to upgrade. I have also tried replacing batteries, taking them out and putting them back in, and taking out and putting the memory card back in. Also I have tried holding down the menu and enter buttons seperatly and together in order for it to go back. Since there is no reset button, I can not just simply reset the device. Please give me some help

The following steps will reset your remote. If this does not fix it, then it's probable a hjardware related problem.

My problem is a bit complex... When I tried to add a song to my device (I had 1.4 GB still remaining) it took a ridiculously long time "synchronizing" so I selected the "stop synch" option on my windows...

One thing you could try is plug it into the computer. Check one of your hard drive letters that is plugged into. It would be either c,d,e,f whatever. Right click it will give you the properties. Used space ect. If you do a quick format it will erase all the songs including corrupted ones and empty out the files. Often works.

Harmony 550 is locked on safe mode

Try this:

  1. Remove the batteries from your remote
  2. Press and hold down the 2 button while connecting the remote to your computer
  3. The Harmony Remote LCD screen should display Upgrade Success
That should do it. If it doesn't work try pressing all the keys and make sure none are stuck in the down position and then retry the above steps.

When I connect Storejet 2.5 through USB the explorer does not respond and when clicked my Computer icon the explorer screen does not display anything

Sounds like virus problems or the hard drive contains bad sectors and is stalling system when system tries accessing it. use a disk surface scanning tool.

Display screen does not work

First of all, try a restart with the monitor attached.
Secondly try going to the system preferences panel- It should be in the dock - the icon with the apple and the light switch.
Try to "detect displays" and see if it comes up in the menu and if the screen responds..

Let me know what you find out.

Stuck on Scyn screen!

It is normal for it to display the "Do Not Disconnect" screen.
It is not normal for the Windows Media Player not to recognize it.
If you have Windows Media Player 11, update the firmware.
If the PC is not recognizing the device:
Make sure the hold/lock is not engaged
Try another USB port
Reset the player

If that fails:
Download the newest version of the Philips Device Manager: - change your country/language as needed
Enter in your exact model #
Click on the link for your exact model #
Click on the Software & Drivers section
Click on "Firmware Upgrade Software"
Install the new Device Manager
Open and run the "Repair" tab

If still nothing:
Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns off. Hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.

After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.

If these methods fail, call Philips to see if you are still in-warranty.

Laptop Display flashs then screen locks up

I wouldn't suspect its anything other than your lcd or inverter. Connecting it to an external monitor cements it. If it was the video card or motherboard it would have certainly done it again. For it to appear locked up would just mean the picture you are watching was the last in its memory to post. Meaning, if the inverter or lcd start having problems, the last thing it was told to display would appear to be frozen to whoever is watching but in actuality its the display not machine that is frozen. Try ejecting the cd tray. Better yet set your power button shut down when pushed. Then have it have another lock up watching a video then push the power button or eject to see if it responds. Then you will know forsure. Hope that helps.

The screen says "Upgrader"

Have you upgraded the software if not try that. Check your battery voltage if it reads around the 2. something voltage then you need to get that battery to its orginal capacity. I dont think you'll get your songs back. Does it have a reset button if so reset it.
