I tried to turn on my mps player today, but it won't come on, holding down the switch on the front isn't doing anything. it worked a few weeks ago. I received it last christmas as a present and haven't used it much.

My sansa mp3 player will not turn on


This happened to me today, which was what brought me here. Also, when I plugged it in to recharge, my computer didn't even recognize it. The SanDisk troubleshooting said to hold up a power switch, which I didn't have, for 20 seconds. So I held the power button down for 20 seconds. (Much longer than the usual amount of time required to turn on). At first I thought it didn't do anything, but then when I pressed the power button again briefly, my SansaClip woke up, was recognized by my computer again, and in every way behaved normally.

I plugged in my i pod and came back a hour later and the screen was black and was frozen and none of the buttons would work


you will need to reset your ipod this will not delete songs. 1 Toggle the Hold switch on and off (slide it to HOLD and then back again).
2 Press and hold Menu and the Center button for at least 6 seconds, until the
Apple logo appears.
If iPod nano won’t turn on or respond
â Make sure the Hold switch isn’t set to HOLD.
â The iPod nano battery might need to be recharged. Connect iPod nano to your
computer or to an Apple USB Power Adapter and let the battery recharge. Look for
the lightning bolt icon on the iPod nano screen to verify that iPod nano is receiving
a charge.
To charge the battery, connect iPod nano to a USB 2.0 port on your computer.

WHEN I PLUG IN MY SA3245 NOTHING SHOWS UP ON THE COMPUTER MONITOR


OK to Disconnect just means ur battery is full and no files are in transfer to the device. After changing battery, the device will update fora minute, if after a decent ammount of time goes by and nuthing happens, use a pin and hold down the reset button, forcing the device to power down, turn it back on and try to let it update again

I can get my mps player to work opn my coputer and i tried my old mp3 player and it worked idk why its not working


Some Philips mp3 players are not compatible with Vista
go to www.usasupport.philips.com to see if yours is compatible

If you have XP:
1) Make sure you have installed the cd that came with the new player
2) Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware.
Wizard.

Why won`t my mp3 take itself off hold?


Power & Hold switch
Slide and hold in the opposite direction
of the arrow for power on/off.
Slide in the direction of the arrow to
lock the button functions.

If that fails,
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
