6.2 Frequently Asked Questions
Question 1. I find new file names and folder names that I never created before or they
have strange gibberish names.
Answer:
Most likely, the player’s file allocation table (FAT) has been corrupted. This might be due to the
player shutting down (due to low battery power) while reading or writing to your computer by
the USB connection. Windows and Macintosh often write extra files to the hard disk such as
finder.def or System volume info. These are normal and will not do any harm to the player.
Question 2. My files have disappeared from the player.
Answer:
Make sure that you browse your files via the correct browser mode which means correct
filtered views such as Photos, Music, or Movies.
Question 3. During power on, why does the TV will have a short flashing, blue screen or
screensaver?
Answer:
This is normal, when the system initializes, it will setup the corresponding parameters so it can
output the correct video signal to the TV, during the initializing time, the TV will receive
incorrect signals or the signals will not be stable and will cause the TV screen to flash, some
TV’s will treat this as no signal, and will display a blue screen or screensaver.
Question 4. Why when I switch to Y/Pb/Pr 480p, 576p, 720p, 1080i, and 1080p, does the
TV screen display an unwatchable picture?
Answer:
Please check if your TV supports Y/Pb/Pr 480p, 576p, 720p, 1080i, and 1080p output, if your
TV does not support, please use the A/V signal display instead, press the TV SYSYEM button
on the remote control, then switch the TV’s video input to NTSC or PAL.
Question 5. Why is there no sound on movie or music playback when using Y/Pb/Pr
component output?
Answer:
Y/Pb/Pr output is a video output only, and does not include sound signals. When using Y/Pb/Pr
output, please plug the A/V OUT or the S/PDIF jack to output sound.
Question 6. I cannot get SSID name, the screen always displays: ‘Can’t get any SSID!!’
Answer:
When the WLAN USB Adapter is connected to the player, it needs some time to get initialized.
Please wait for about 1~2 minutes and try refreshing the SSID list again.
Question 7. I cannot see files shared on my computer via Browser->Network menu.
Answer:
Please check following items:
34 / 36
1) Connect the player to network and obtain an IP address first;
2) Please enable NetBIOS of TCP/IP on computer;
3) Please check your PC’s firewall settings;
4) Please enable your PC’s ‘Guest’ account;
5) Please share the folders which you wish to browse on your PC, and make sure that
‘Everyone’ or ‘Guest’ has the right to access.
Question 8. I configured everything correctly, but still cannot get the wireless network
or UPnP function to work.
Answer:
Are you using a firewall such as Norton Internet Security, McAfee Personal Firewall, Zone
Alarm, etc. or even the built-in firewall of Windows XP? (Don’t forget that Service Pack 2 for
Windows XP automatically upgrades your firewall and turn it on by default)
If you have a firewall, it may need to be configured or have exceptions created to allow you to
see and communicate with the player on the network. To test if your firewall is preventing
network communication (including PING and access shared folders), try disabling it to see if
you can connect. If you can connect with the firewall disabled, you may need to add the player
to the ‘Trusted’ list or configure the firewall for local intranet access. Worst-case, disable your
firewall long enough to use the player, then enable it again when done.
Question 9. I am using the 802.11n Wi-Fi dongle with an 802.11n wireless router, why
the speed is still 802.11g 54Mbps rather than 300Mbps?
Answer:
The IEEE 802.11n Draft standard prohibits using high throughput with WEP or TKIP as the
unicast cipher. If you use these encryption methods (e.g. WEP, WPA-TKIP), your data rate will
drop to 54 Mbps. You may contact the Access Point or router manufacturer to download the
latest firmware, or try other encryption methods (WPA2-AES or WPA2-TKIP), or choose to
configure an unsecured profile, but this option is not recommended.
