Kumyoung – Where to get PIC Chips?
I bought my Kumyoung Vivaus Mini last February 2012 and the only update I had so far was for the March 2012 songs. I only managed to update it to the latest songs when I paid a visit to the Kumyoung Service Center in Pasig.
When you update the kumyoung machines, you need to go through each PIC chip and you cannot skip. Each PIC Chip can hold three months of songs. So in my case, I bought 3 PIC chips (e.g 1 for APR-MAY-JUNE, 2 for JULY-AUG-SEPT, 3 for OCT-NOV-DEC) in order to get the latest songs. Next year, I need to get a new PIC chip for January 2013.
This is the address of their service center.
3rd Floor, Frankfort Bldg., 146 Pasig Boulevard 1600
When I went there, the building looks abandoned because there’s no tenant in the 1st and 2nd floor but don’t let that discourage you from going up to the third floor. Once you reach there, a technician will assist you. When you buy a PIC chip, they offer free installation as long as you brought your player there and they will also give you new pages (new song lists) for your song book (big or small).
If there are a lot of customers, prepare to wait a lot because in my case, I waited for nearly two hours for only a handful of customers. But don’t let this discourage you because some of the customers brought a lot of units to be updated and there was only one technician at that time.
So I hope this helps on the question on where to get PIC chips. You can either buy them online or go directly to the Kumyoung Service Center; whichever is more convenient to you.
Till next time,
