Magnavox MSA2025 Problem

Whenever I turn on my player, the words "MAGNAVOX" appears, like always, but that's all it does, and then turns off. It does this no matter what I do, and turns off after several minutes or seconds.
I tried battery replacing, but it doesnt work.
It is not even recognized by my computer, and I've tried firmware and holding it for 10-15 seconds with the back button and +volume.
Nothing works still.
So is there any way to fix this?
Or am I screwed...
I thought I'd try leaving it alone for a few days, but I dobut that'll do anything...

    Go to this link and Downlod the firmware from here. When I ran the firmware download , it repaired the Mangnavox device manager. I uninstalled the mass storage usb device driver from my PC first in device manager. Then the instructions from chandramukhi worked! I thought it was weird to keep the battery out but it worked.

Just to clarify for those of you who are confused easily like me:

When you connect the mp3 player into your USB port, you need to hold the button down AS you are plugging it in, not after it is in the port. THen the device manager will recognize it. ^_^

What is the purpose or function of the FUN-LINK(HDMI CEC)?

The fun-Link option means that the Magnavox TV remote would control other Magnavox (and possibly other Funai manufactured) products (DVD or Blu-ray player) that also have the fun-Link protocol and are connected to the TV on the HDMI port. You can set the function to always turn on or off the accessory when you turn on or off the TV. Alternatively, turning on the accessory will turn on the TV.

Usually the model number is on the back of the TV. Many Magnavox manuals are available from the manufacturer's support page: .
One Magnavox TV with the fun-Link option is the 40ME313V. The manual describes enabling the feature on page 29. The direct link to the manual is .

I hope this helps.

Magnavox mp3 player unable to charge via usb

Go to and download the firmware and driver upgrades. Then do a launch device manager from your programs. Make sure and hold the return button on the top of the player until the magnavox device manager recognizes the player. The repair program will fix it. We just had the same problem and we fixed it. At first all it would say was magnavox and then turn off. It resets the mp3 player. You will have to reload your songs. Y

I just had the same problem. Here's what I did. Un-install the Device manger and then go to this websight:
Now download Device/Firmware Manager, Version: 0101001006 English (US) and instill it. Then download Firmware Upgrade - Software, Version: 002.022.005 English (US) and run it. Now open the Device manger and click the repair tab. Now hold the back button on the mp3 player and plug it in to the computer until the computer screen says that it has reported an error. Now click repare. This worked for mine I hope it works for yours.

2 GB Magnavox

The MSA2025 is a neat little player - you just pop off the cap, and the usb connecter is directly attached to the device. So, no more cords.   The reset is simply to remove and reinsert the batteries.  It can work with Windows XP or Vista, and it is compatible with Windows Media Player 11. I would go ahead and upgrade the firmware at the first sign of trouble, because my friend, who is a Magnavox tech, had her share of problems with this one before upgrading the firmware. The only drawback of this player is that it is not compatible with DRM-protected WMA files - so it won't be compatible with Napster, Bearshare, Leap Frog, and many others. It is not compatible with iTunes.  Rhapsody's Mp3-Only service will work, as will Mp3's from Limewire, Morpheus, etc. I would only use mp3 files with this device.
I would reccomend using Windows Media Player 11 to Sync songs to your Mp3 player, but you can also drag and drop using Windows Explorer - just drop  the files in the Music folder of the Magnavox.

The manual can be found at:

The Magnavox website also has the "Magnavox Device Manager" - which is the same as a Philips Device Manager but with a different logo.

Just to follow up on the post by Blu2aRox If you don't have the software you can download it here: The "Back" button is the arrow button next to the volume control (took me a while to figure that out). You hold down the back button when you plug it into the pc, and windows will recognize it, and the magnavox software will ask if you want to repair it. I had to do it twice - the first time the software said it failed to repair. But I think that was because Windows was still installing the device - if I had waited for that to finish it might have worked the first time. Thanks Blu2aRox! Works great again.
