Question about Archos Gmini XS202 MP3 Player

1 Answer

I went to turn on my mp3 player, and it has just frozen on the welcome greeting screen. what do I do, as there is no power on or off button, only a pause and play button, which is used, when held, to power on or off. Also, plugging it into the computer, did not cause an reaction with the mp3 player.

SOURCE: mp3 player has no music

Hi - I have the same problem. The tech support folks at Exmprex say you need to reset the firmware with a utility called fwisp.exe - which is on the CD that came with the player - except there was no CD. I've asked them if they can provide a downloadable version. Email [email protected] with your device details and see what you get.
Good luck!

SOURCE: unit will turn on to welcome screen but will not

Hi,
Welcome to Fixya. If the device is freezing, recovery screen won't work and the computer will not recognize it. It's obvious that the player is bad. It is very common to a bad usb device that if the computer will not be able to detect it. If you can check the warranty of the device and contact Archos fro possible repair or replacement so that it would be free.
Thanks

Hi,

Please follow the below steps and check if that resolves the issue:

  1. Press down on and hold the "Power" button on your Philips GoGear MP3 player.
  2. Press down on and hold the "Volume Up" button on your Philips GoGear MP3 player. Continue to hold both of these buttons down for three consecutive seconds. The MP3 player will turn itself off.
  3. Press and hold "Power" until your Philips GoGear MP3 player turns itself back on. Your GoGear will no longer be frozen and you can use it as normal.
If you require further assistance then please revert back.

Regards

My mp3 frozen on the welcome screen and restart and freeze again


First reset the Sansa e260. The way you do this is you hold down the power (menu) button for 15-25 seconds. This usually solves it.

Good Luck,

Turn off the player after turning it off. Perform recovery mode ( Enable hold switch + Press Record button + Power/Menu button ) until it says welcome to recovery mode and perform the update for the player. Then after doing that you may have to format the player. :D
