View Full Version : MCD712/12 Pause function not working on MP3 files

03-30-2012, 12:22 PM
I have a problem with Micro Theather.
When playing other than the first mp3 file and I want to pause it the button "Pause" does not work correctly.
Instead of pausing the file it starts to play the first one. :mad:
Is there any solution to this error? Or should I just should I call the service?

Just to make sure you are pressing the button 8, instead of button 9 right?
For the button 9, it may means to start all over again.

If you correctly press button 8 and it starts from the first track, it does not sound right.
Do you have this issue since day 1, or you have this issue after a period of use?

if it's the latter, i recommend to go service as this sounds like a HW issue.

Thank you kwinnie for your answer!
Yes, I press the button 8.
The problem appears only when listening mp3 files. When I listen audio CD it works OK.
I have found that "Pause/Play" function during playing the FIRST mp3 file works like it should.
What's more - when playing file number N, and first I press the button Down to be on position N then "Pause/Play" works. Unfortunately it is not mentioned in the manual.
In the case of audio CD - it works exactly like in the manual.
It seems that it is not a HW issue but rather SW or firmware.

So, looks like this stupid behaviour is a feature not a bug? Or maybe there is a way to upgrade the fimware of this Micro Theather?
Anybody from Philips on this forum? ;-)
