Question about Finis Swi MP3 Player

1 Answer

The computer is not recognizing swim mp3

When I first plugged in my swim mp3 player the green light came on and it charged. The second time I plugged in the mp3 player to the same usp port no green light is comming on. Could I have damaged it already. I am so annoyed. I don't have the patience for this and I don't have the money to waste. Is there a warranty on this device.

After I have used my swimp3 (fully charged) once it is no longer charged the next day and I have to recharge it. why does it die after only one use - am I not turning it off properly? Thanks Suzi


Depending on which model Swimp3 you have, the battery life may vary. At the most you should expect about 6 hours of play time before it needs to recharge.

One mistake we have had customers make is they plug it in to the computer to recharge, but then cut off the power to the computer. If you are using the computer to recharge your Swimp3 Player you will have to leave the computer power on.

Once you disconnect it you will have to press and hold the power button for 3 seconds, the green light will flash fast 3 times and then turn off. If the light is still on, the player is not off.

An alternative option would be to use a USB Wall Charger to charge the Swimp3. If you swim daily, its an easy thing to just pop it in the charger before you go to sleep (just make sure it is dry before you plug it in).

If you find this solution doesn't work, you may want to try resetting the player by pressing and holding the RESET button.

I hope this helps with your Swimp3.

Good Luck

It could be a few things.

1, The Charger is bad
2. The battery is completely dead
3. There is an internal malfunction that would require factory service.

While this may not help try plugging the charger into another computers USB port and dock it to see if anything happens.

I have the same problem just bought the thing yesterday and it won't charge I downloaded music yesterday and charged it, now it isn't recognized by the computer.

Went thru the whole troubleshooting chart and nothing happened, I did email techsupport but haven't heard anything. I guess I'll take the thing back and get it replaced.
