Battery doesn't hold charge

This is my sons MP3 player, and he says that when he hooks up the player to recharge the battery, it will charge for a few seconds, but then the display says that the battery is fully charged. It runs out of juice after playing a few songs. I downloaded and reinstalled the firmware and don't know if that will help yet. Anyone else have this problem and know of a solution?

Re: Battery doesn't hold charge

It is just like that because it isn't done recharging. After a while it will turn back to what it's real power level is. You should let your MP3 player recharge for over an hour at least to have it fully recharged.

Battery not holding charge

If the rechargeable 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 and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Battery not charging

Possibly the batter may have gone dead. How long have you had the MP3 player? If maybe it hasn't been used in a while how was it stored? Cold? Heat? Lots of moisture. But really if it is old most likely then it can't hold a charge anymore. Thing to try is just buying another battery and see if it will work and if that doesn't work well, say goodbye to the MP3 maybe unless you know of a place that can fix the internals.
