Upgrader too :O(

I had the same problem, it just started doing it yesterday. It only turns on to show the word upgrader! It wont charge or do anything. I had it for 2 years with no problems, but I am really sad to see it die. If anyone can help, it would be great!

Re: upgrader too :O(

Have you tried the tiny little reset button (push with a paperclip) or re-flashing the firmware?

How do you charge the MP620 MP3 Player?

It will show you you it. The screen depends on where you are charging it. If you charge it on a computer it will say connected. When you charge in an outlet it will say charging. If you have more question ask me.

My Samsung YP-T9 MP3 Player wont turn on!!

I think holding down menu and the record button at the same time should fix it. I read the best solution and it just turned on. I was having the same problem, mine would not turn on either but just try pressing and holding down the record and menu button for about 5 seconds.

Zen wont work

it sounds like a possible back light problem. those are not something you can fix at home. if you are hearing music etc, mean definetly the back light is gone.
It's like a laptop computer, when the back light gone, you are still able to use the computer on an external monitor but not on the laptop lcd.

Samsung digital audio player won't turn on.

I have the samsung digital audio player YP-U1. I was charging it on the computer yesterday and I realized that for some real it stopped charging and i did not get a message saying that it disconnected. So I took it out and tried to put it in the usb port on the computer and it would not start charging. After that, I took it out and tried to turn it on, and it would not turn on. It hasn't turned on since yesterday afternoon.

Zen m wont turn on

Well, it needs to charge via USB on your computer, so plug in your zen into the computer with the creative usb cord, and let it recharge. It may not necessarily turn on if it's really out of battery, but you can tell its charging when the switch you use to turn on and off, and hold, the light is blinking. After sometime, your Zen screen on the upper righthand corner should show a little battery and be blinking green what stage it's at in its charging. When its done charging the battery icon with be fully green, not blinking, and have a little plug icon inside of the battery icon to indicate that it is fully charged--takes a couple of hours to charge.

If that does not work, check your USB cord to make sure it's not damaged in any way. If it is, you may need to purchase a new one for better connection. And if that doesn't work, then you might need to replace the battery altogether, which I'm sure, if you are still in your manufactuer's warranty, they can do for you. After it is replaced, your zen should be good as new and ready to operate.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

My ipod nano wont do anything

I think your ipod is dead. This happened to me to. I was listening to it when I arrived at my destination, and I thought I turned it off and I put it in my pocket. Later that day when I went to listen to it, it wouldn't turn on at all. Aparently, it had stayed on. Hold the pause button for five to ten seconds. The apple symbol will appear on your ipod. Immeadility put it in your docking station before it goes away. Your ipod will turn on, and itwill start charging.

I hope this helps. Please rate my solution.

Sansa won't charge or load.

Plug it into the computer (the cord you would use to charge it and transfer files), and hold down the power button for at least 15 seconds. The Sansa should then begin to turn on and start charging. :)
