Nokia: 5800 Xpress Music V50.0005 Upgrade Killed The Music Player
May 4, 2010
I have upgraded the firmware from v31.0.101 to v50.0.005 and I had the unpleasent surprise to find that the music player is no longer working. It plays only the files stored in the phone memory and is unable to update the library. It shows music files on the memory card that were deleted longtime ago and refresh library does not change anything: always shows refresh complete 0 files added. When I connect the phone to the PC, the Ovi Player doesn't see the phone and even the device manager shows that there is a problem with the portable device (conneced in PC Suite or Media Transfer modes). Done even a hard reset but nothing has changed except that it has lost the applications it had in the phone memory.
I just bought a new Nokia 5800 Xpress music, i updated it to V40 and just after that updated my ovi maps application, while transfering maps using maps uploader, nokia pc suite appears and i got a message "another accurance of maps is opened" i closed it.
Now everything works, nokia maps opens normally but when i do a zoom out it closes and i must reopen it, i downloaded the latest version as a sis file and installed it, i also installed added the maps again but i got the same result, i'm not able to use nokia maps at all.
I have had my Nokia 500 music Xpress for approx 8 mths now and i love it but about a month ago it turned itself off and i thought it was just a one off, it happened a few times, I would remove battery and sim and put them back in and turn phone back on. I will a get few days when i have no problems and then it will do it again sometimes 5 or 6 times a day.
Yesterday It happened and i really thought it was not going to come back on. Eventually got it back on but i havent a clue why it should keep doing this and don't have a clue what to do to rissolve it... is it the software/battery or the phone?
im trying to get in the IM chat for msn, but when i touch to run IM, it just load a bit and then it does nothing, it doesn't even get to the menu or some kind of loading bar, just like the application doesnt works, i even tried to put back to store settings, deleting everything i got, and still nothing
i've just updated the firmware (v. 52.0.007) for my nokia 5800 xm, but when i tried to open the music player application, it tells me that there is a system error. i've tried re-installing the phone update but music player still shows me a general system error. this is making me quite sad. i want my music! heck, it's an 'xpressmusic' phone.
been a bit disappointed with nokia lately. first the Internet failure and now this... don't make a nokia loyalist switch to apple!
this is my first Nokia having converted from Motorola and I was wandering if it's possible to edit my imported tunes to create a ringtone from just parts of a track such as the intro etc; I cannot find anything in the instructions what so ever on how to do this, as it's possible with Motorola i'm sure it must be with Nokia ?
i bought a Nokia 5800 xm last may. wanna know is it supports TV out? but there is no TV cable included. they said it may supported. but the box doesn't have the sticker about the TV Out components being removed, the handset hasn't been affected. so shall i connect it? if it not supported what will happen?
Recently got a new 5800 xpress music and have entered all contacts into mobile. When contacts are calling me it is not displaying their number just saying call calling. Having noticed some people have been having same problems,I have checked that I do not have any duplicate numbers stored, and have also tried saving only to sim or only to phone but neither are allowing the number to be displayed. I run my own business so this is getting annoying as if I miss a call I don't have a clue who it is and can not return any calls!! Can anybody help!
I have Nokia 5800 and can't update the firmware, i tried using both NSU (latest version) and Ovi Suite (Latest version) on a Windows XP SPĚ OS, the problem seems to be that the OS don't recognize the phone when the phone shuts off in te middle of the update process, a bubble shows "new hardware found" an then "problem occurred trying to instal new hardware", it seems to be a driver issue but i have the latest installed and.
My phone decided to break last night. Literally, one minute it worked and the next minute it didn't. I have lost all my photos and videos as well as all the songs I had stored on the memory card, which is leading me to believe that the problem is to do with the memory. The memory was nowhere near full capacity however.
When the phone broke, randomly (hadn't been dropped, wet or knocked!!) the phone froze, I had problems turning it on and off, it was very slow and unresponsive. It wouldn't recognise the keylock being used. At one stage it didn't recognise my Sim. Also when I looked to see what Applications are open, there is a 'contacts' symbol open but it is labeled as "PBK2serverApp" as opposed to "Contacts". When I select this, it just takes me to the home screen.....
I have a 5800 and recently wanted to play a song. When I started the player, I got an error - something to do with the music library being corrupted. I left it to try and sort the problem for a while and then pressed STOP. When I tried later, the library was empty.I have upgraded the Music player but that also did not help. I removed the memory card where the MUSIC diretory is located and re-installed it. I have also re-booted the phone several times.From my PC I can see the directroy with all my music. All attempts to REFRESH the library on the phone fail with a message saying that 0 songs have been added. I have left it for long periods of time but still have no songs.If I locate a song with the file manager I can play it.Is there some way to delete/reset the library database and force it to re-create it?
I have a virus on my memory card which has de-stabilised my phone, has it seems to be frezzing, shutting down and just mis behaving. the problem i have with re formatting the card is that it came with some system files. if i reformat through the phone , will it replace all the system files on the memeory card...
I have a Nokia 5800 XpressMusic and am currently using the Contacts Bar Home Screen Theme, which I find very useful.
However, I would also like to have my calendar visible on the home screen, as is possible on the Shortcuts Bar Theme. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find a way to have both the Contacts Bar and the Calendar visible on the Home Screen.
I have a Nokia 5800 xpressmusic mobile and its about 7 months old , I charge up the phone and the batery lasts between 6-8 hours with very little use ? the phone is just draining the power from the batery . At first I thought batery dyeing so I put another one in , charged it up and the same happened again,About a 2 weeks ago it did get wet fell in the sink and I dried it out and waited a few days befor I switched it on and it worked perfect no problems until a couple of days ago. I can put batery in and charge it switch phone on with no problems , I even took the batery out to see if the batery was dyeing on its own with no problems put it in my friends phone and it lasted as it should , so is this a software problem in the phone or is it earthing or something to cause a drain?
Some time ago I changed the place where my SMS were stored from the phone memory to the memory card, and for some time everything worked smoothly. Now, suddenly, some of my messages have disappeared and the default memory location has become the phone again.Now, if I try to select memory card from the messages settings, the application crashes and I'm sent back to the home screen.
Just got a new 5800 XpressMusic, and it works wonderfully, except for one problem - there's no form of alert for text messages, giving me no way to tell if I've received a message apart from actually going into my inbox and looking. I have a message tone and vibration set and still there's no notification, not even an icon at the top of the screen.
Since Ovi updated the maps I've had trouble using it. I have version 40 firmware which was installed by Vodafone when my device expired. Despite the update, Ovi maps just crashes the phone when I try to use it. The screen goes blank and I get all coloured lines flashing down one side and the phone reluctantly restarts.
I've just recently used the Voice recorder on my 5800 XpressMusic (FW 31.0.101) phone & I've notice something weird. If you select Options > Settings > Choose memory location > recording Quality > High Then record something, then select 'Options' > 'Go To Gallery'
No mp4 files (the format 'high' is recorded in) are shown. Yet it's fine if you set Recording quality to 'Standard' (WAV) or ' MMS compatible' (AMR).
I have had the Nokia XpressMusic for almost a year now. I have been experiencing several problemswith it recently; the first problem shown was that it would call my contactswithout my intention to do so and also without me touching the phone. Often it will send a text half way through me typing it and recentlyit has been switching off by itself.
I have also been experiencing the fuzzy screen due to the coldand this morning the phone's touch screen buttons would not respond however thetoolbar with the music, gallery, connectivity etc... on the right hand side of thescreen would pull down instead. The phone has been dropped a few times, however I do not thinkthis contributes to the faults. Could the phone be repaired as it is still underwarranty or will they not accept it?
I updated my phone firmware from v40 to v50 over the air. The download package was around 9MB in size. After the upgrade, I realised that my phone did not have all the features of v50 firmware update. For example, features like "Quick Office v4.2 integrated", "Rihanna service launcher in web browser" are missing. Then I decided to reinstall the v50 update through my laptop. So when I connected my phone with my laptop and opened the "Nokia Software Updater" it said that the update package is around 138MB. Now I face a problem. After clicking on Re-Install option in "Nokia Software Updater" the download does not stop at 138MB. Infact it does not stop at all. It goes on like 2MB of 138MB.. 4MB of 138MB.. 60MB of 138MB.. and then 200MB of 200MB... 300MB of 300MB and so on. I decided at that time to wait for some time. But it reached 350 MB and still it did not stop.
So any idea if this is expected behavior or is there a problem with my phone or the "Nokia Software Updater" software. Please note that I have the latest version of "Nokia Software Updater" installed on my laptop. Fortunately, I don't have any serious problems with my phone except that when I click on "applications" icon, it takes some time to respond.
I try to access my music player on my phone it tells me aknnfysrv: Feature Not Supported. This has been going on for about a week now ever since I updated the apps on my phone. I dont even know what this means! does anyone know how i can fix this error?
