That battery wasn't meant to be replaced. 90% of the time, I have seen battery replacements fail to resolve the issue. Do yourself a favor - don't be like the other idiots here - skip the DIY stuff, call Philips, and get an in-warranty replacement if you purchased it in the last year. As far as getting the back off the player - you have to use a tiny screwdriver - what else can we tell you? Taking apart your mp3 player will void any warranty you have, so don't even try it.

If the MP3 player battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time.

Recharging mp3


Whenever the PD-6070 is connected to a PC, it will charge. The battery indicator on the OLED screen will slowly fill over and over as it is charging. When the charging is complete, the battery indicator will stay filled.
