LG Optimus S Default Music Player Does Not Work!Support

    The default music player will read all the tag information and album art off of my SD card, but it will not play the music. It plays a fraction of a second, skips to the next song, and repeats until I have to "force close" the app. Is anyone else having this problem? I have not found much on the Internet about it at all. I have tried multiple SD cards, and I have also tried completely formatting the cards in a computer and in the phone itself. A different player like doubleTwist is able to play the music just fine, however...

    Yes, I am aware there are other apps that have more features than the default player, but it has everything I need. I guess nobody else is having a problem with this?

    Never heard of that problem. If you're that insistent on using that player, since it's an app that comes with the phone take it in to a Sprint store. Worst case they'll give you a new phone. Me personally I'm not a fan of the stock player so I'd just get another player, specifically PowerAMP.

    Just curious but have you tried pulling the battery and rebooting the phone?

    Yeah, I tried resetting the phone a few times, but still no luck. I am reluctant to hard-reset the phone just because I don't want to have to set everything up again, but I might try that a little farther down the road. I will try to stop by a Sprint store on Monday to see what they say.

    THey are just gonna do a hard reset. Your best to Back up with Titanium then do it. Export your contacts too, to be on the safe side. :)

    Do you have Last.fm installed? Or any other "scrobbling" app? Last.fm caused this exact issue on my Optimus V, and deleting last.fm fixed it.

    Not OP, but uninstalling Last.fm completely fixed my problem, thanks!

    ya I had the same exact problem. it happened just after i downloaded some music. I dont know if this had anything to really do with it, but it seems a little too coincidental. It worked perfectly fine after I unistalled last.fm too. Strange why it would matter.
    It would start to play, maybe miliseconds and then try to skip to a new song until I either used task killer or force closed it.
    BUt yeah unistalling last.fm fixed it.

    I had the same problem and couldn't find an answer. it had something to do with Last FM. As soon as I deleted that app it was working again.

    Cumptrnrd: I have that same problem with some (but not all) of my WMA audio files because Android doesn't natively support WMA. So I uses BoomBoxoid (free) to play my WMA files. PowerAmp ($5) will also play WMA files, but the output volume is too low for me.

    I had this same problem with my Optimus V, but I fixed it. It happened to be because of a 'Live Wallpaper' app thing that I downloaded. After I uninstalled it, my phone was back to normal:)
