Question about Mercury Electronics MP250 (128 MB) MP3 Player

1 Answer

Little manual does not indicate to charge unit before using

I bought a MP3 player (Karbon) today and it does not indicate in the booklet whether to charge the unit first before trying to use it. Does the flashing green light go solid when fully charged? I would like to download some music to it but don't know when I can do it.

Iphone 6 wont charge when docked on lightning dock

iPhone 6 has circuitry that tests whether the device you are connecting to is approved by Apple. There is a chip in the chargers, synch leads and adapters of approved accessories. Charging is bad enough, but synching from device to phone, or phone to device is even more sensitive. I bought one adapter lead that didn't work at all and came up with an error message 'this is not an apple approved device'. Then I bough an adapter from eBay, it said it would synch and charge, but in fact it would only charge. Fortunately, that is what I wanted to do. I bought an iPhone 4 charger for the boat, so the adapter worked for me to charge to my iPhone 6.

How do i charge my mp3? and for how long?

Hello adrien37,

You don't mention which model of Nextar MP3 player you have but most MP3 players are charged by connecting them to the USB port on your computer using the supplied programming cable. Actual charge time can vary depending on the player and may be as quick as 2 hours or as long as 8 hours. If the MP3 player in question has a battery indicator you can use that to gauge whether or not the unit is done charging.

Best Regards,
"Go Ahead. Use Us."

I recently had the same problem with the MP-845 but I managed to figure it out. If you use the AMV converter (download at:

or use the software provided, you can convert all your video files to AMV files and add them to the device that way. Step by step instructions for how to convert to AMV files can be found at:

I hope this helps you. It's actually really cool once you get it working :)
