Troubleshooting Guide & Maintenance
Troubleshooting Guide
Troubleshooting Guide & Maintenance (contd.)
Voice Recording is not possible
z Check if the HOLD key is switched OFF.
Many potential problems can be resolved without calling a service technician.
If something seems to be wrong with this product, check the following before
calling us.
The player cannot be switched on
z Check if the AC adapter is disconnected.
z Check if the built-in battery is exhausted.
z Check if the HOLD key is switched OFF.
No sound or the sound quality is poor
z Check if the volume is set too low.
z Check if the earphone is plugged in properly.
System crash when the unit is in operation
z This may occur within a strong magnetic field. Take the unit away from the
magnetic field. Perform a hard reset, gently poke a paper clip or a pin (not a
pencil) into the RESET Hole on the top (near by the HOLD switch) of the unit to
reboot the system.
Maintenance
Moisture condensation
If condensation forms inside the unit the unit may not function properly.
Sound skips during playback
z Check if the built-in battery is exhausted.
z Check if the music file is bad encoded.
z If there are any bad sectors on the hard disk the sound will skip during playback.
The battery runs out fast
z The built-in battery is probably dead. It will need replacement.
Replacement should be carried out by qualified personnel only.
NEVER disassemble the product for this purpose.
In the following cases, condensation may form inside the unit.
z Shortly after turning on a heater.
z When the unit is placed in a room where there is excessive steam or moisture.
z When the unit is moved from a cool place to a warm place.
To remove condensation:
Leave the unit for approximately 1 hour. The condensation should evaporate and
unit will work properly.
Cleaning
The unit does not play for 10 hours
z 10 hours of playback is based on MP3 files encoded at a bit rate of 128 kbps.
Power consumption is minimised under this condition since the unit accesses the
hard disk only once every 28 minutes. Higher bit rate increase the access and
power consumption leading to less playback time.
When the unit becomes dirty
Clean it with a soft cloth. When the unit is excessively dirty, use a soft cloth
dampened in water (external surfaces only).
Clean the plugs and the connecting sockets
If the plugs or sockets are dirty, noise may be heard. Cleaning will prevent noise.
Recorded voice files cannot be seen from display (after renaming them)
z The file names of recorded music/voice files are automatically generated by the
player and are managed separately from downloaded music. Whilst renaming
them you have to move them to the VOICE folder, under the ROOT FOLDER.
- 23 -
Caution! Do not use chemicals for cleaning (petrol, paint thinner and etc.). It may
damage the cabinet finish. Do not apply oil to the inside of the unit. It may cause the
unit to malfunction.
