1. Make sure the hold switch is in the "off" position.
2. If the light comes on but your media doesn't play, it could be that you've load files which have DRM applied. The player does not support DRM, and thus can't play the files.Try playing a file that you are 100% certain does not have DRM applied.
3. If the light does not come on, the battery is fried (if LiPo batteries discharge past a certain point, they have a tendency not to recharge, no matter how long you leave it on charge). Return the player to the store where you purchased it.

My coby mp705 wont turn on but when i plug it to my computer it works.. what kind of assistance shall i do to make my coby back to normal? any kind of answer would be wonderful

sounds like the battery is the problem if it wont start wothout a power source

Check the system requirements for the MP3 player.

Most Coby players require Windows XP or higher and at least 1 GB of RAM to function correctly.

Check your Coby owner's manual to ensure that your machine meets all the required specifications before proceeding.

Charge the MP3 player fully.

Often, a player will act unexpectedly if it has a low charge.

A charge can also help reset the MP3 player if it has frozen or locked up.

Once the player has finished charging to 100%, see if the problem persists.

Re-sync your player.

Plug the MP3 player back in to the computer and then remove all the files.

If you have not done so already, make sure they are backed up to your hard drive.

Unplug your MP3 player and then re-load all of your files.

Check for corrupted and wrong format files.

Most Coby MP3 players only play back MP3 files, and will perform unexpected operations

if files of other formats are uploaded to the device.

Go through your uploaded files and check the extensions.

Anything that does not say ".mp3" or is not listed in your owner's manual needs to be deleted from the device.

hope this helps

I dont know how to use my coby mp550 mp3 player

Read. The. Manual. I'm sorry if this sounds rude, but it really should go without saying. If you've lost the manual, Look for it at the Manufacturer's Website.
But essentially (and generically): To turn on: Press (and maybe hold down) Power Button (sometimes play button) until turns on. Ditto to turn off. To Charge: Plug it into the Computer (Make sure the computer is on). To sync Music. Plug it into the side of the computer, open WMP. Look for device in Library. Drag songs/playlist across.
And in future. Read. The. Manual. Thank You.
