Re: sticky play button

*always make sure your grounded when working with electronics

you can carefully pop the casing at where the usb port connects to the case. carefully take out the pcb and look where the play button is, if you inspect the button, one of the prongs on the very end may be broken.. (mine looks like an S with the button in the middle).
i super glued mine on the ends where the button connects to the case and it works just great now.

Re: sticky play button

If you mean the push button got push down into the case then youll have to probably replace the case as these buttons are most of the time attached right to the outer housing and are not available by them selfs. if you wanna take a chance then open the unit and take out the pcb chassis and see if you can push back the s,mmall button but its something I would not recommend as there are lots of problems you can cause if you dont know the right procedture on disassembly.

Can you please tell me how to stop my Coby player from playing the same song over and over without my manually advancing to the next song? I must have selected a repeat option.

Are you playing files from a playlist, or are you selecting by Artist/Song?

If in a playlist, it should advance to the next song automatically. If you choose a particular song, it will just play that one song over and over. If you choose an Artist, it will play all the songs of that artist over and over.

How do i skip to the next cong quickly

According to the manual, which can be found online here:, once you start a song using the Play button, you can immediately press the Next button to skip to the next song. It appears that the next button is the right button on the control pad.
Here is the layout of the control pad, from what I can determine online: Play/Pause Previous Next Volume

Songs wont change

It is stuck on "Repeat One" - refer to p.23 of your user's manual -
You can set your player to play music tracks randomly (Shuffle All ) or repeatedly (Repeat One or
Repeat All ).
1. From the main menu, select Settings > Play mode.
2. Use the VERTICAL TOUCH STRIP to scroll up or down the options.
3. Press § to select an option.
4. Press § again to deselect an option.
While you are playing music you can see the following active play mode screen.

Music will not play, just cycles through songs without playing

I just had the same problem with my 2GB silver nano. I had to restore the factory settings through iTunes and reload all of my music. There was also an update for the nano that I downloaded yesterday (Jan. 29, 2006) and installed when I restored the factory settings. My nano appears to be running fine for the moment,but we'll see if this actually took care of the problem.
