Ok I think I just dont know what I'm doing. I have tried for 10 hours now to fix this. I have the player to where it works and when first connected to the computer it is reconized and shows up as f: drive in explorer. I can also turn the player off by holding down the play button like always so it is working. Just still have this plain blue screen and no text or anything. I think my problem is that I dont know how or where to put these firmware files after downlaoding from this site. I use firefox browser and when I click download from the site here it puts the files onto my desktop. Some files end in .rar some end in .php and alot others. I am not puter techy so I'm lost here. This is what I think will work if someone is willing to help me. I found this firmware here http://www.mympxplayer.com/dload.php...le&file_id=152 this is what I think I need. If anyone can make a guide or can just tell me how to extract and where to put these files on my computer so it would be easier for less techy people as myself to access when puting them into the firmware upgrade utilities software. Basically I can follow instructions but really dont know where to start. Thanks for all your help so far.

Pocket_Nano,
The file types you mentioned, RAR files are like ZIP files you need to download a program like Winrar or 7zip to open then and extract the files. PHP are image files for Adobe Photoshop, usually for themes.

To load your firmware you should extract your firmware to your desktop they will be .bin or .fw files. Connect your player to your PC then open MP3 Upgrade Tool. Click on the "Select Firmware" button and navigate to the firmware you want to upgrade. The version of the firmware you have chosen will appear on the right. then press the "Begin Upgrade" button to upload your firmware to your player.

If you get an error message you may need to repair the firmware so download a program called s1fwx from the download section and unzip to your desktop. Copy your firmware into the s1fwx folder and if you need to rename to "dump.bin" then run the repair.bat, now you should be able to upload the firmware.
You may also need to format your player.

Tadad1 I know how to use the utilities as to clicking choose firmware and then begin upgrading and all that.. I know that when I click on download button on this website for the firmware I choosen it puts it on my desktop. Now I have downloaded the 7-zip file manager is that correct?. But what I'm saying is I dont know how to go from there. After the firmware is on my desktop I need to know the steps to open with firmware with 7zip and where to put it and how to find it for when I open the mp3 utilities to choose the firmware. I hope that makes it easier to understand what I'm asking.

Pocket_Nano, If you have installed 7zip then you should be able to right click on the file you want to open and find a 7zip entry in the context menu. When you move your mouse to the 7zip entry a menu will pop out giving you options on opening the file. If you select Extract Here it will extract the file to wherever the original file is stored. So if say, Dump.rar is on your desktop and you right click on it and choose Extract here in the 7zip menu it will be extracted to your desktop.

When you open MP3 Update Tool and use the "Select new Firmware file" button you will be presented with an Open Dialogue which is like a miny version of Explorer. If you click on the little arrow at the top of the window in the area marked "Look in" you will see a directory tree of your computer, choose Desktop and find the file you just extracted using 7zip (dump.bin or 3.5.37.fw, whatever it is called) then select it and it will load into MP3 Update Utilities. Now all you need to do is click the "Begin Upgrade" button.

Pocket_Nano,

Best to probably open a new post with your enquiry. However, let's see if I can answer it for you.

Firstly, you need the program "7-Zip" to open .7z files. Much like .zip files but better compression and FREEWARE (no more nagging Winzip boxes all the time).

You can download 7-Zip from here.


The second part is updating the firmware on your player. There is a Knowledge Base on this too - How to: Update the firmware for your MP3/MP4 player which can be located here.

Hopefully this helps answer your questions.

Have added a link to another full version firmware, this one is a 3.5.35 version and restored my poor test player with one flash instead of two. Those that have restored there players and find that they no longer have TelBook, Text and Games may also find this fixes the issue as well.
