Try pressing the Play button. On the Element 811/812/820 MP3 players, the On/Off and the Play button are the same. To turn off the unit, press and hold the Play button. For more information, see the manual at ManualsLib: .

I hope this helps.

You an do hat, but it will work. There is no phono input on unit.You can buy a stand alone phono preamp and raise to line level, and use line input.

  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

Hi, there
Since your unit has a CD player, the problem with both the turntable and cassette deck is probably due to the rubber belts that turn both mechanisms losing elasticity or have broken over time (or in the worst case scenario, turned to goo). I don't know your model manufacturer, but turntables often have a clip, or some sort of apparatus, that you can remove to lift the turntable platter up and off. If you can do that, you will be able to see what shape the turntable belt is in. For the cassette deck, more intricate disassembly is required. Replacement belts for both can often be found on eBay or other online sources.I found a video for an ion turntable that might have a similar belt system.

They do not in my honest opinion. You can here the difference caused by the sampling rate on high end systems. Usually higher frequencies aren't as crisp.

They are a counterfeit copy of the patented Apple Ear Pods. If you have an iPhone, Apple have found a way to recognise them and only allow you to hear them in one ear or the other, not both. I had a pair and looked at all the instruction videos, but nothing worked. Eventually, I just gave up. They will work on Android, but not on iPhone.

Hello John, before changing the belt, clean the surfaces where the belt will work?
You should clean the belt, with a little alcohol, on the plate, then clean the motor pulley, also with alcohol, if you can remove the plate, check that the axis of rotation does not generate jumps or hardening
I hope the information has been useful
Greetings Franco Dosil

Hola John, antes de cambiar la correa, limpio las superficies donde va a trabajar la correa?
Debe limpiar en el plato, el sector donde trabaja la correa, con un poca de alcohol , luego limpie la polea del motor, tambien con alcohol, si puede retirar el plato, compruebe que el eje de rotacion no genere saltos o endurecimientos
Espero que le haya servido la informacion
Saludos Franco Dosil
