Question about Nextar MA71520R Digital Media Player

Open Question

Unable to Turn on

Just a hour ago I was listening to my Nextar MA71520R 2 GB Digital Media Player (I believe that's the right version, though it's blue; not red), and just randomly it shut off. I tried holding the power button to turn it on and that wouldn't work. I also tried using a combination of holding the power button while it's plugged into the computer in hopes it would turn on then, but that didn't work either. It's irritating me and I can't find my manual for troubleshooting problems like this, nor can I figure out any other way of getting the MP3 player to turn back on. Please -- someone help me. It's driving me insane!

SOURCE: Nextar ma570 mp3 player wont turn on

I had the same problem happened on my MA570. I finally find that it is easy to be fixed.
The problem is the lost of the Drive software in the MP3 unit for whatever reason. Use the mini CD that comes with your MA570 when you buy the player in the package. Put this mini CD into the PC. PLug your MA570 through the USB with the PC as a removeable device. Clikc the install software on the mini CD and install it into your MP3 player (for example device F:). After you have the new driver installed, you will be able to turn on the MA570 again. Let me know, if this still not work. It works for me.

1. push down the button slider that you see on the side of the mp3 player labeled <mode>. that unlocks it.2. then plug it into the computer, select my computer from the start menu, and click removable disk drive (its usually labeled [E:].) 3. then delete what you need to by right clicking them and selecting delete.

My mp3 player had the same problem - used a better quality usb cable and was instantly recognized by Linux, Windows 98 and Windows XP. Sound quality improves with better ear buds as well.

I have the same problem with mine. Recently I tried plugging in one of those portable, AA Battery cell phone chargers in the USB port and I was able to see the player work as it had before. This as convinced me that the rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery may be the culprit of this problem. I have not figured out if I can find a replacement yet.
