    My balls rotate freely and don't stick. lol  That's how they should be I presume.
    If you have computer screen or lens cleaner try giving them a good clean and polish (with the unit off of course) and dry.  The manual says you can use Windex but that sounds a bit harsh (I'm protective of all my electronics).
    If you still find they're sticky I think you should get it serviced or replaced.  You don't want the volume up ball to stick and blow out some nice earphones.

    Thanks.  I used window cleaner on a cloth and now they're moving much more freely.

    Is it normal that the volume down ball doesn't rotate as easily a the other balls?
    Also, on the outside of the balls, it looks like there's dirt on it or something. Is this normal?
  4. Mojo ideas
    Some time some foriegn material might get into the gap surrounding the ball. Try rotating the ball for a few minutes the ball should become free.

    Is there anything underneath the ball to restrict debris from getting in the internals?

    With the included micro usb cable it's loose at the Mojo side and loses connection with my phone if the cable is nudged slightly up or down, only a gentle nudge is required to make it lose connection.  
    I connected a couple of other micro usb cables which seem a bit better and require more of a nudge to break the connection but it still happens. 
    Not ideal if strapping it to my phone.  Is anybody else experiencing this? Do I have a defective unit?
  7. Mojo ideas
    The switches are sealed to IP67 standard

    Awesome! Thanks for the reply.

    GreenBow: Interesting that you pointed out the 0.5 second mute isn't consistent. While I didn't notice that while using Mojo + iPhone during my week long audition period, I do find the same inconsistency in applying the 0.5 second mute applies to the Soundaware Esther DAP I just reviewed. The 0.5 second mute should only happen in that DAP when switching between resolution, but it sometimes occurs between songs with the same resolution. Not sure why. I just mention it because it sounds similar. Sorry if it's too OT.

    Mine does, but it's coax jack on the Mojo, the port is not loose (no play) when the 3.5mm is plugged in, but still same thing happens as in your video when i judge the cable

    My factory cable did the same, however I didn't experience any problem with other usb cables. So in my case the factory cable was defective.

    Hey there,
    I am planing to get rid of the smartphone as primary source, therefore I am going to build a Raspberry Pi 2 Streamer running Music Demon Player.
    Has somebody tried this combination with mojo before?

    I charged it overnight using a charger that is 1A 5V charger, per what I was informed. It was solid white light last night, checking multiple times before bed, but was blinking as of this morning when I woke up.
    I am using another charger (3rd different one, 1A 5V rated per my understanding) and it's solid light again, and has been like that for the past hour. 
    I also purchased another charger and cable, and will revert to that as a "final option" if this doesn't work. The store rep said it's solid quality. I will have tried 4 different chargers and 4 different cables including the newest one, at that point. All of the chargers used (except the one I just purchased) have charged other devices without issue. I understand that the Mojo has particular charging device/power requirements, so I am doing my best to adhere to them.

    I've been using the Mojo with a Raspberry Pi 2 (using RuneAudio, which is based on the Music Player Daemon), the Banana Pro (using MPD and the Gnome Music Player Client), and a Cubietruck (with RuneAudio), and the Mojo sounded great with all of them. I been trying these low power boards because I can attach USB (on the Raspberry Pi) or SATA drives (on the Banana Pro and the Cubietruck) to them for more storage than I can get on a phone.

    Shuffles off to check out these low power Linux-based thingies. You might be getting a PM soon Staxton for stirring up my curiosity.
