This is driving me crazy.

I just bought a new Motorola Defy Plus (MB526) this week and plugged in a 16 GB SD card to it. Like the features it offered like Moto-Blur and all that.

So after 2 days of use I dumped some songs to listen while traveling to office. I started the playlist (in Connected Music Player,i.e., the stock music player provided in defy plus) to listen to music. But after 30 seconds or so phone goes to standby and song continues. But before song duration is complete, the sound shuts off. If I check the phone there is no app running. I tried listening to radio, and it was same thing with radio as well. I thought it was some sleep timer problem in music player, but I did not find any settings to do so. I browsed for solution in many places in Internet. But could not find solution. I found similar problem for Android v2.2. But my phone has Android v2.3.6. In between I tried using other apps such as Live 365 and Remote for VLC. Live 365 felt like it ran for little longer but even that closed too. Same problem persisted for Remote for VLC also, i.e., it's active for a while. After 5-7 minutes or so the app has closed completely.

Can I solve this problem by enabling Factory Reset? If I reset using that, I know that apps I installed will go away, and that is not a problem with me. But will the stock apps provided by Motorola go away too?

Sometimes I found the irritating Voice Command(I dont know what is called exactly, maybe - Listen app) window popping up. How should I turn that off?

    Are you using any task killers or "RAM free-up" type of apps? Those may be interfering with Android's built-in memory management. Also, if I remember correctly, MotoBLUR has its own version of a task killer (forget its name) which may be set too aggressively and is causing the phone to end active tasks.

  • Yes there is stock app - Task Manager. In that Connected Music Player, Live 365, Remote for VLC along with other apps were in auto-end-task list. I removed them from that list. In Live 365 there is delay in playing for every 2 minutes or so. Remote for VLC is ok now. But problem still persists for Connected Music Player Commented Apr 6, 2012 at 17:25
  • Installed MixZing Media Player just now. It is playing fine in stand-by mode (played 3 songs in standby mode, thats around 10 minutes). Now I think, I should use this third party player only. Even for FM Radio should I depend on third-party app? Commented Apr 6, 2012 at 17:58

Go to task manager icon from round lighted main icon at bottom center of phone. Once task manger is running , click on auto end list and remove your connect music app or any other app that plays music. Thats it.

Also notice before you do the operatino above that musics would stops playing after about 2 minutes. Because that is the default setting for the auto end list in the task manager app.

  • Yup you are right. I did that long time back. And its working. I almost forgot about this post thanks for the answer. Commented Aug 14, 2012 at 6:42
