Re: Will not turn on.

I read of the following fix for the nomad II, you could try and see if it works for you: 1. Turn unit to "locked" position. 2. Hold down the "stop" button. 3. Continue to hold the "stop" button, take the battery out of the unit. 4. Still holding down the "stop" button, put the battery back in. 5. Continue holding down the "stop" button until a screen comes up with "backup code", wait a few minutes and then switch unit to unlock and take out a battery. 6. Put the battery back in and you should have a working unit. There have also been reports of loose terminals within the unit causing the batteries to not make good contact. Be sure the batteries are in tight. Does it turn on when connected to PC? if so you could try updating the firmware. Good luck

My ipod nano 2gb won't completely turn on, the screen flashes the apple sign and it lights up for about 7 seconds than turns off. what is goin on?

It sounds like the battery is bad. This is very common for these units - even brand new. Does it work while it is being charged?

Mine wont even turn on had it on loaded music and it has frozen and now it wont come on or is brand new.

Replacing the firmware in your mp3 player should have it working like new again. Please try these steps to fix your Coby MP-610 MP3 Player.

Not using battery

Sounds like a bad battery or the circuitry that charges up the battery is not working properly. Give the manufacturer a call if it's under warranty for a fix or replacement.

Mine was the same, it solved using the methods below that written by ThaMp3Doctor:

"Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure"

Won't play

I put in a NiMH AAA battery in it, and it turned on. I tested it with new alkaline and copper top batteries and it would not turn on. Must not like the 1.5 volts only 1.4 volts.

Help needed

Here is a fix I got from Sandisk support: Let's try this: take the battery out of the player and wait for a full 5 minutes. While the battery is out, please hold the power-on button for 10 seconds. After that, connect it to your computer (without the battery). Does it work when it's connected to the computer? Regardless of that result, disconnect it from the computer, then put a brand new alkaline battery back in, and see if it will turn on. Now, another thing I found that worked once, was to remove the battery, hold the power button for 5 seconds, then replace battery. The unit powered up after that.
