Xonix MP3 watch- Ideas to reset if frozen?


#1

To any out there that are much more technoligically advanced than I…My Xonix watch began working just fine, but then, while transferring music, it appears to have frozen. I have found on the Xonix site a suggestion for trying the “Hold” and “+” for three seconds to possibly reset, but with no luck. For a few minutes this thing was rocking, but not it is frozen. Let me know how yours is working and any ideas you might have.

I might know.

Well please spread the “Word” Rev so that we can all rejoice with our new fangled wrist music!!

Ok, open her up. And do a battery removal. Boot it again. See if that resets it.

It’s not my fault if it breaks yada, yada.


#5

Ok instead of drastic surgery like the Rev recommended, I decided to wait it out. Basically I went to bed with the frozen indicator lights still frozen, hoping that it would run itself down and reset, or, it would turn itself off (sleep) after two minutes and reset. Today I checked and apparently it ran itself down and then off. After a good bit of recharging, it is now good as new…er…used…again! U get my point! Really great piece of crap for the price! Thanks Woot.

I pushed all 5 buttons at once to get it to reset.

Mine has never worked. Neither of my computers (win XP) nor the firmware upgrade installed on them can sense it’s presence. Actually, that’s not completely true. It installs as “unknown device” on one computer, but has no functionality. I emailed Xonix, and a very nice lady by the name of Susan replied with tips. When none of those panned out, we began talking about return for replacement/repair. It will cost me $6 handling plus shipping (both ways). That can’t be too much on so small a package, but they ARE in Hong Kong.

$31! That’s how much they want to reapir it and ship it back.

My way was better.
