Re: not again wont turn on

I had the same situation this happens when you dont turn off your t20 after you disconnet it from your pc IRIVERS T2O PROBLEM IS THAT IT AUTOMATICALY TURNS ON EVERY TIME YOU DISCONNET IT FROM PC AND IF YOU DONT TURN IT OFF AFTER THIS - IT FROZES it wont connect to pc after this happens so you have to wait ussualy (~12 hours) until the battery runs low, so after this has happened wait and then after some time try to press play button (to turn it on) and if the battery is dead - it will show LOW BATTERY sign and then you can connect it to your pc again normaly! hope this will help

Shutdown problem

How long have you had this item? Did this situation happen over time or just suddenly? Does it happen as soon as you turn on after charging or does it take a short while? If this has happened after owning and using for a while, I would suspect that the battery is worn, or just not holding a charge for whatever reason (not important). The fix for this problem would be to find out of battery is replaceable and then to get a new battery if it is. Also, don't buy a used battery as this problem will just happen again sooner than it will with a new one. I've owned many music/video players and some batteries are just duds from the get-go and don't last anywhere near what they should! Hope this helps! ;)-~ If the battery isn't replaceable then you'll just have to spring for a new player.

Opinion #2 Check and see if manufacturer website offers a firmware update for your product, sometimes this can fix certain problems as I had a battery problem for a digital item that was fixed this way, but my item was new and I was sure that it wasn't an old battery problem.

Motorola, M25, orange-Won't play

Likely not new but worth the try. Had reviewed various other POSTS, and suggestion to take out battery and let sit for a while. Often cures unknown ills. Took out the new battery that did not work, let it sit overnight, put battery in again next morning and it booted up. This was done after, changing three batteries, after taking in/out the SD card (no real reason, but figured why not) and, after a subtle BANG on each of the corners of the unit......

Samsung YP-Z5F MP3 player malfunction

I have that kind of Mp3 Player too... that happened to me, but the PC was able to read mine. However, the reason why the message: "Low Battery USB Disabled" appears, is that you still have remaining battery life, but will only last for less than an hour (indicated by low light and red empty battery sign) you have to make sure the Mp3 is completely discharged. (you'll be notified when you turn on the device while it says: "Low Battery") once that it is completely discharged, you can now plug in the USB cable with the device to the PC... if problem persists, check your PC.. can it read the device? Check if a notification balloon appears at the bottom right corner of the monitor screen. It should say, "Found New Hardware... Samsung YP-Z5F..." if it did not appear, try to INSTALL using the Installation CD given when you bought the product. Just insert the disk into the PC and continue on, then when it is already installed and ready for use, plug in the device! This may be a little hard, but this is the only way I know. Feel free to ask me! I am no technician but I know a lot on devices and fine mechanics. Good luck!

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off 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.
