Battery not holding charge

Have owned Accurain MP3 player for about 6 months and it originally held a charge for about 12 hours. It now will only hold a charge for less than 2 hours. Can this be fixed or can the battery be replaced?

Hi,
Sounds like your battery is going. Many Mp3 players can have their batteries replaced, the problem is finding someone with the parts or who is willing to do it. I have found that the batteries are usually the same as the iPod shuffles use. The battery is probably soldered onto the circuit board so the shop will need to be able to solder. You may be able to get service from the factory. Hope that helps.

Batterylife,GoGear Vibe 4GB how long between each charge, getting 5 to 6 hours.


The battery life is rated at 25 hours for audio and 4 hours for video. If the charge is not holding you can try ensuring device is secured while charging. If this does not work the battery is bad and should be replaced. This is not horrible news, batteries for the GoGear Vibe 4GB are only $10.00.

Hold down on the center button while hold down on the menu button. The apple logo will appear. Your Ipod is now rebooted.

Is the new battery fully charged? Usually it takes 6 hours on a new battery.

Battery wont charge correctly


Probably a hardware issue that requires replacment, but:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
