Music player plays the same track over & over!

Music player plays the same track over & over!

For about a week now, the 'Walkman' music player on my Sony Xperia S just gets stuck on the same track; whatever track I put it on, it just plays the same one over & over, and refuses to move on to the next track on the album! I've tried switching the phone off & on - nothing - I've tried clicking on 'Shuffle songs in album' - this just makes it pick a song randomly & then play that one song over & over again. There is nothing at all in the 'settings' that could have made it do this, nor that can make this stop. In fact there is nothing in 'settings' at all other than some kind of audio enhancement. 

Help please - it's driving me crazy, I have no idea how or why this started nor how to make it go back to playing every track in turn.

You will get repeat only when listening to one song and tapping on the album art for that one song.

Do you have Repeat one enabled - There's a U type image lying on it's side in the bottom right and if you keep tapping it, It will say Repeat off then Repeat all then Repeat one then back to Repeat off

Re: Music player plays the same track over & over!

Thanks both

Alexdon - do you mean that this will totally wipe ALL of my music off? Otherwise I don't have any 'playlists' as such - only albums.

Thommo - thanks but I cannot see this icon at all? There is just a little thing in the bottom right that shows the length of the track.

It will not delete the music. But first,check out what Thommo suggested. The option for repeat can be found if you tap once on album art.

Re: Music player plays the same track over & over!

Thanks, but sorry I'm still not getting this little icon in the corner?

If I tap on the 'album art' it simply brings up the track list on the album; there is nothing in the corner. I assume by 'album art' you mean the album cover itself, in 'album' view? If I tap on an individual track this is the only time something appears in the bottom right hand corner, but it's just a thing that shows the length of the track. Whatever I tap on, I cannot see anything in the corner; are you able to send me a screenshot please?

Many thanks

PS: this is a screenshot of what I see when I click on an album cover - just the track titles; nothing in the corner!

See this image - The right one - Look in the bottom right corner at the U on it's side with an arrow, This icon controls Repeat

'You will get repeat only when listening to one song and tapping on the album art for that one song.''

FINALLY! Thank you - this was all you needed to say; nothing was clear before! I was tapping on everything I could see, but not on the album  art for an individual song! I have never , ever seen those icons before, so I have no idea how the repeat even got switched on... Thank you both very much for your patience & sticking with me on this! Slightly smiling Face
