"Firmware Upgrade" (provided by jwmgotee):
I just repaired/reformatted my 1.0 GB Ilo following the instructions below with no problems:
Please connect the player to a rear USB port on the computer. The display should show “USB Connected”. (If not, please press the power button.)
Please make sure that all unused programs and applications are closed. You can close the applications by closing as many of the icons in the lower right hand corner (by the clock) as possible.
Download the correct Firmware
Click here (https://system.netsuite.com/core/media/media.nl?id=16076&c=432868&h=b25618a8ea7ead5c9573&_xt=.zip) to download the ILO 116 Firmware
Click Open to initiate the download
Double click on the ILO or Siren folder icon. There will be 14 icons.
There will be a Setup icon that looks like a box with a blue line on it; please double click on this.
Then click Run - this will open the Install Wizard.
The Install Wizard has the instructions on the screen as you go through it.
Once the firmware has installed, please click the Start menu, then Programs.
Look for the icon that says ILO or Siren, and then double click the Firmware Update to install to the player. Depending on how severe the corruption to the firmware on the player is, you might have to do this step 2 or 3 times in order for it to completely repair the firmware.
It will now search for the ilo. This may take a while depending on how corrupted the firmware is, so be patient.
After it has found the ilo, it will say, "A device has been detected in recovery mode and is being initialized. Please wait."
The ilo should come back to life and start showing it's glorious "USB Connected" screen.
The "Firmware Update" window should appear. Select "Format Data Area" to rid the player of corrupted firmware data. And click "Start".
It can take anywhere from 2 to 4 minutes to re-flash the ilo and the program might appear to have locked up, but it hasn't. So don't close the program or disconnect the ilo!
If the program fails to find the ilo and gives you an error like, "Device Timeout" or something similar, you need to reinstall the ilo drivers. This can be done by inserting the ilo cable into a USB port it has never been plugged into before. Or you can reinstall the drivers by reinstalling the Rave-MP program. (Remove it, restart the computer, and then install it again).
Although, plugging it into a new USB port is the fastest and easiest option.
If your player won't even turn on, follow these instructions first and then those above:
First, remove the battery. While this isn't necessary to get the player into recovery mode, it insures the unit will not power on before the cable is inserted.
On the ilo, hold the "Power" button down while inserting the USB cable. Continue holding the power button down for 5 seconds more after the cable is inserted. The backlight on the ilo will remain off during this time, making the screen appear to be blank.
An hourglass should appear on your computer and Windows should say,
"Found new Hardware 'SMTP3500".

Wont turn on unless its on charge


you can try to see if there is a bug fix for it go online put the manufacturs name and the model # of your player in the search bar if there is a fix for it their web page will tell you how to install it.if not? it sounds like th battery could actually be dying..just because the icon shows it at full charge doesn't actually mean that it is..the only way to know that for sure would be to have the battery tested but that would req taking the player apart and that's not a job for beginners..my advice? back up all of your tunes and buy a new one..your best/cheapest bet

My mp4 player just wont turn on


The battery life must be ended , so you need to have a new one . Batteries got life time . Life time of battery depends on the content of the battery . The content is made from special chemical materials that can not activate themselves after certain time .
good luck .

MP3 Player won't work


I had the same problem too. What worked for me was rolling the battery while it is in the battery compartment and holding the play button at the same time.

Coby mp3 mpc7095 wont turn on


I work for Coby technical support. Our customer service phone number is 1-800-727-3592.

Thanks for using FixYa.

If the unit is no longer turning on after being adequately charged, unfortunately, it needs to be replaced. The unit can not be fixed. The warranty is 90 days from the date of purchase. The only option available to you through the manufacturer would be an out of warranty replacement for $31.

If you feel this solution doesn't deserve a good rating, please let me know why so that I may better assist you. If there is anything more I can do to help, I will!

Dying battery


I would recommend running the battery till it is flat, by playing it for as long as possible, at full volume. Then charge it up for ages, maybe all night. To minimize battery wastage change the brightness to minimum and the display to 15 seconds. The reason the battery dies is because of excessive pressing of buttons. If this fails take your player to one of the specialist Sony Places that will fix it. I believe these are listed in the warranty or the manual that came with the player.

Won't play any songs.


I had this problem with my player (th 1101) when I was transferring songs from iMesh. After awhile I found out that even though I could listen to the files on the computer some wouldn't go on the mp3 player. Looked it up and there is an encoding on some tracks (preimium tracks they call it) that unless you pay for them they won't transfer off the computer (CD, MP3 players ect.). They also had free tracks that works just fine. Hope that helps
