    Unhappy How to get rid of locked sound?

    I can't hear my Songbird MP3 player louder than volume 10. When I try to increase the volume, it locks. How can I get rid of that?

    The manual that came with the songbird is whimsy and doesn't explain a lot if anything.

    Hi Oscar,

    Thanks for your reply. The link doesn't help me much.

    The very inadequate attached guide says:

    Phillips GoGear MP3 player SA3RGA02, SA3RGA04, SA3RG4008

    Once I want to hear something louder than 10, it locks, by showing me a crossed out sign or loudspeaker. The scale goes up to 20 or so, but it blacks half way up.

    Please advice. I have still warranty on the product, is there a technical support line that a customer can call?

    Hi there again This is to comply with the A12 safety requirement on the portable products.

    To unlock the volume 20 limit: 1. Switch on device. 2. Play any songs. 3. Press vol + till the level 20. 4. Press return button. Then you will see “long hours & high volume damage hearing” to pop up. 5. Press and hold the vol+ when see this message. 6. After 2 seconds, it will be back to the ‘now playing’ screen. 7. Press Vol+ again and if all goes well then you will be able to adjust volume over 20

    Would this apply to the SA060?

    I can't find any return button.

    At the bottom of the volume slider I have a padlock. Presumably if I can get rid of the padlock the player would go louder (max isn't loud enough at present).

    I have an SA3ARA08K, i don't know whether it will work for your one, but I'll tell you what I did:
    Sound settings->SafeSound->SafeSound settings->Volume limit-> set the volume limit to maximum so when the option enables itself, you'll still be able to play it without limits.

    Hope this works on your device!

    Thanks for the help, but I don't have those options. When I go to Home then settings I just have the following:

    Set Power-saving mode
    Sleep timer
    Display settings
    Language
    Information
    Format device
    Factory settings

    Nothing about Safesound

    is there any pop up message to hint you what you can do abt this?
    usually it s either you have safesound control like wt wilma said or it's really the A12 thing.

    (but A12 is a new amendment of EU standards which implemented just Jan 2013. Not sure if your SA060 has it or not)

    If that is the A12 thing, try to press n hold the vol button when you see the lock sign.

    .
    Pop up on the player screen? Or am I missing something, am I looking at settings on the player itself, or on my PC?

    I don't think the player has pop ups.

    I'm really disappointed with the player. It was recommended as having clear sound, but unfortunately I can't tell if it's clear or not as I can't hear it.
