Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting
This section provides answers to some common problems that you may encounter
while installing or using the ASUS O!PLAY Mini Plus HD media player. These
problems require simple troubleshooting that you can perform by yourself. Contact
ASUS Technical Support if you encounter problems not mentioned in this section.
Display
Q1. The media player does not work. You think that the problem
might be with the media player’s power adapter.
• The media player’s power adapter may have performed the overload
protection function — automatic shutdown during improper working
conditions, such as too much current and voltage, or exposure to extreme
temperatures.
• Disconnect the media player’s power adapter and wait a few minutes
before you reinsert the player’s power adapter directly into an outlet. Turn
on the media player again.
• If the problem still exists, contact your retailer.
Q2. The TV screen is blank and the media player power LED remains
off.
• Ensure that the TV is turned on.
• Ensure that the media player’s power adapter and power outlet are
functional.
• Ensure that the media player’s power adapter plug is firmly attached to the
rear panel of the player and to the power outlet.
Q3. I cannot see the Setup Wizard when I turn on the player for the
first time. The TV screen is blank and the media player power
LED is on.
• Ensure that the TV is turned on.
• Ensure that the AV/HDMI cable is properly connected to the correct
terminals on both the TV and the media player.
4-1
•Ensure that your TV is switched to the appropriate video source (AV IN
or HDMI). You may need to use your TV Remote control to change video
sources.
•Turn off your media player and wait for a few minutes before turning it on
again or press the reset button at the back panel.
•Ensure that the HDMI resolution of your TV supports 720p, 1080i, or
1080p.
•When you turn off your media player, wait until it is completely turned off.
DO NOT press the remote control repeatedly when the remote control
is in the power-off process. Doing so will cause your media player to
malfunction. If this occurs, disconnect and then connect the power adapter
to the media player.
Q4. The TV screen is blinking and fuzzy.
•Ensure that the AV/HDMI cable is properly connected to the correct
terminals on both the TV and the media player.
• Ensure that the media player power LED is on.
•Ensure that the TV system setting matches the system used in your
country.
• Ensure that the correct video resolution option is selected.
Q5. I cannot find any of my music, movie, or photo files.
•Ensure that your media server (such as a USB storage device) or your
computer is switched on and that the device is not on standby mode.
•If you are on a wired network, check that the Ethernet cable is properly
attached to the media player and to a network router. Check that the router
is switched on.
•Check that the media server (your computer) has shared the media player
as a client and that the files are also shared.
•If you are using a static IP address, check that the IP address is in the
same range as other addresses on your network. Verify that the address is
not already used by another PC or device.
•Ensure that the files are supported file formats and are not damaged.
Q6. Certain files cannot be played on the media player.
The media player may not support the video or audio format used in the file.
For information on what media formats the media player supports, refer to
Specifications summary in Chapter 1.
4-2
Chapter 4: Troubleshooting
Q7. Only one video/music/photo is played when I selected it. How do
I play the entire list?
When selecting a video/music/photo to play, pressing the OK button on the
remote control plays just the selected file while pressing the PLAY/PAUSE
button plays the entire list of files.
Q8. T he LEDs on the Ethernet port do not blink and my wired
connection does not work.
•Ensure that the LAN cable plug is firmly connected to the Ethernet port of
the media player’s rear panel.
• Replace the LAN cable.
• Reconnect the LAN cable to the media player to keep the network
connection active.
Audio
Q1. There is no sound.
•
•
Ensure the volume on the entertainment unit is not on mute mode.
Go to Setup > Audio and ensure that you have enabled the correct Digital
Output setting.
For more details, refer to the section Configuring the audio playback
settings.
•
If you are watching a video that supports multiple audio channels, press
the Option key
on the remote control and select Audio to ensure that
the required audio channel is displayed.
Q2. I cannot hear any sound when I am playing music files.
• Ensure that the audio cables are properly connected.
•If the audio cables are connected to your TV, the TV must be turned on to
play any music files.
•If the audio cables are connected to your stereo, ensure that the stereo is
on and you have the correct stereo input selected. If you are having trouble
selecting the correct audio source, refer to the instructions that came with
your stereo.

Q3. A few of my Music files do not appear.
The media player supports the most common music file formats. However,
there are almost an infinite variety of bit rates and sample rates. If a file is not
displayed on the screen, it most likely uses an unsupported bit rate or sample
rate. Only use files with supported formats, bit rates, and sample rates.
USB storage device
Q1. I cannot find any of my music, movie, or photo files.
•Ensure that your USB storage device (USB Flash/USB HDD ) is not on
standby mode.
•Ensure that the files are supported file formats.
Q2. The media player does not recognize my USB storage device.
Problems with USB storage devices are caused by the USB driver or USB
cable. The media player may also need more time to detect the USB storage
device. Disconnect and reconnect the USB storage device, use a new USB
cable, or use another USB storage device.
Remote Control
Q1. The media player remote control is not working.
• Ensure that the batteries are properly inserted.
•The batteries may already be drained out. Replace the batteries with new
ones.
•Ensure that the path between the remote control and the media player is
not blocked.
•High-definition movies that are streamed via the network may not play
smoothly. You may also encounter some problems with using your remote
control such as lag and no response.

Wired, Wi-Fi, and Internet connection
Q1. I cannot connect to the Wi-Fi network.
•Ensure that you have properly configured your Wi-Fi settings.
•Check the documentation that came with your router for the correct
wireless settings.
•The network you are trying to access may be protected, secured, or
encrypted.
If you are trying to connect to a wireless local area network (WLAN), contact
your network administrator for the security and encryption settings.
Q2. When I searched for a Wi-Fi network, I found several networks,
some of which are encrypted. How do I connect to an encrypted
network?
Contact your network administrator for the correct SSID (network name) and

Mask, and DNS server’s IP address. For more details, refer to the section
Wired connection on the User Manual.
Q5. How do I share folders on the network?

bandwidth for your network connection.
Q7. Why do I encounter network lag when I use Internet media
services such as Internet radio and TV stations?

Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license
document, but changing it is not allowed.
Preamble
The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to
share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended
to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software-to make sure the
software is free for all its users. This General Public License applies to most of the
Free Software Foundation’s software and to any other program whose authors
commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered
by the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to your
programs, too.
A-2
Appendices
When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our
General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to
distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish), that you
receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or
use pieces of it in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny
you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. These restrictions translate
to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the software, or if you
modify it.
For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a
fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. You must make sure
that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them these
terms so they know their rights.
We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you
this license which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the
software.
Also, for each author’s protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone
understands that there is no warranty for this free software. If the software is
modified by someone else and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what
they have is not the original, so that any problems introduced by others will not
reflect on the original authors’ reputations.
Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish to
avoid the danger that redistributors of a free program will individually obtain patent
licenses, in effect making the program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it
clear that any patent must be licensed for everyone’s free use or not licensed at all.
The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow.
Terms & conditions for copying, distribution, & modification
0.
This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice
placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the terms
of this General Public License. The “Program”, below, refers to any such
program or work, and a “work based on the Program” means either the
Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work
containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications
and/or translated into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is included
without limitation in the term “modification”.) Each licensee is addressed as
“you”.

Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered
by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of running the Program is
not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if its contents
constitute a work based on the Program (independent of having been made
by running the Program). Whether that is true depends on what the Program
does.
1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program’s source code
as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and
appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and
disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to this License
and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of the
Program a copy of this License along with the Program.
2.
A-4
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and you may
at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of it,
thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and distribute such
modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that you
also meet all of these conditions:
a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or
in part contains or is derived from the Program or any part thereof, to be
licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties under the terms of this
License.
c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when run,
you must cause it, when started running for such interactive use in the most
ordinary way, to print or display an announcement including an appropriate
copyright notice and a notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that
you provide a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this License.
(Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but does not normally print such
an announcement, your work based on the Program is not required to print
an announcement.)
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable
sections of that work are not derived from the Program, and can be
reasonably considered independent and separate works in themselves,
then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those sections when you
distribute them as separate works. But when you distribute the same sections
as part of a whole which is a work based on the Program, the distribution
of the whole must be on the terms of this License, whose permissions for
other licensees extend to the entire whole, and thus to each and every part
regardless of who wrote it.

Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your rights to
work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to exercise the right to control
the distribution of derivative or collective works based on the Program.
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program with
the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of a storage
or distribution medium does not bring the other work under the scope of this
License.
You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, under
Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of Sections 1
and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source
code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above
on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to give
any third party, for a charge no more than your cost of physically performing
source distribution, a complete machine-readable copy of the corresponding
source code, to be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on
a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to
distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is allowed only for
noncommercial distribution and only if you received the program in object
code or executable form with such an offer, in accord with Subsection b
above.)
The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making
modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source code means
all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated interface
definition files, plus the scripts used to control compilation and installation of
the executable. However, as a special exception, the source code distributed
need not include anything that is normally distributed (in either source or
binary form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component itself
accompanies the executable.
If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access to
copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy the
source code from the same place counts as distribution of the source code,
even though third parties are not compelled to copy the source along with the
object code.
You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except as
expressly provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify,
sublicense or distribute the Program is void, and will automatically terminate
your rights under this License. However, parties who have received copies, or
rights, from you under this License will not have their licenses terminated so
long as such parties remain in full compliance.

You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it.
However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or distribute the
Program or its derivative works. These actions are prohibited by law if you do
not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or distributing the Program
(or any work based on the Program), you indicate your acceptance of this
License to do so, and all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or
modifying the Program or works based on it.
Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the Program),
the recipient automatically receives a license from the original licensor to
copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to these terms and conditions.
You may not impose any further restrictions on the recipients’ exercise of the
rights granted herein. You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by
third parties to this License.
If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement
or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues), conditions are imposed
on you (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict
the conditions of this License, they do not excuse you from the conditions
of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your
obligations under this License and any other pertinent obligations, then as
a consequence you may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a
patent license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then the only
way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to refrain entirely from
distribution of the Program.
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any
particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to apply and
the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances.
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any patents
or other property right claims or to contest validity of any such claims; this
section has the sole purpose of protecting the integrity of the free software
distribution system, which is implemented by public license practices. Many
people have made generous contributions to the wide range of software
distributed through that system in reliance on consistent application of
that system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing to
distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot impose
that choice.
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be a
consequence of the rest of this License.
If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain countries
either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the original copyright holder
who places the Program under this License may add an explicit geographical
distribution limitation excluding those countries, so that distribution is
permitted only in or among countries not thus excluded. In such case, this
License incorporates the limitation as if written in the body of this License.

The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
of the General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will be
similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to address new
problems or concerns.
Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program
specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and “any
later version”, you have the option of following the terms and conditions
either of that version or of any later version published by the Free Software
Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of this
License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
Foundation.
10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free programs
whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author to ask
for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free Software
Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes make
exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals of preserving
the free status of all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the
sharing and reuse of software generally.
NO WARRANTY
11
BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS
NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY
APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING
THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE
THE PROGRAM “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER
EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE
IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR
A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY
AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE
PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL
NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
12 IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED
TO IN WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER
PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS
PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING
ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES
ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM
(INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING
RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD
PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY
OTHER PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS
BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
