Will not power up, bad on/off switch?

My daughter's player will not power up. I have been reading from other posts that the switches can go bad. Also, when I plugged the USB cord in, my computer did not react and nothing came on the players screen. Has anyone had this problem?

Re: Will not power up, bad on/off switch?

Same problem - won't power on and nothing happens when I plug into the computer. Strange thing is, that this happened not long after I purchased the player, but then it started working again after I picked it up a couple weeks later. Now it won't do anything. Since I purchased it almost a year ago, I'm sure I am out of luck, but will try to call customer service. Sounds like there is a flaw in the workmanship fo the switch??? They should make good on these problems if they are widespread. I wouldn't buy ILO again.........

Same problem regarding the on/off switch. They offered very little support. I wrote to the email address at least 4 times. Have a receipt and serial number ready. Here is the contact information found on the website. Received a live human before 6 p.m. (est). Hope this is helpful and good luck - out of warranty - out of luck!!!

Yes, my daughters is having the same problem. Wal Mart says I have to contact the manufacturer. The problem is I can't find the Owner's Manual nor their site on the web. Have you had any luck?

Us-europe fm frequencies switch

Hi, i don't understand what you mean by us-europe fm frequencies switch because you did not post your question correctly.

Let me give you a brief history...
It's a device for connecting a personal audio/video player to a vehicle equiped with a FM radio. The device connects to the lighter/DC connector of the vehicle with a power block 1 to provide a source of power for the player and recharge the internal battery of the player. the device also connects to docking receptacles of a personal audio player with a recieve port 6 allowing unattenuated sound and recharging connection. A wire serves as an antenna for FM transmitter 3 to make wireless connection to the vehicle radio......

Please re-post your question to get your problem solved..

Take care

My sansa fuze i plug it in to the computer and it doesn't recognize the device and i have tried all usb options on the device. What do i do it wont charge at all.????


When the Fuze can be switched on:
1. slide the power on switch shortly upwards to put the player on
2. hold the power on switch upwards for 15-20 seconds
3. release the power switch
Next try to switch the player on and see if it reacts normally.
Switch the player off again and try charging again, making connection to a computer.

When charging still doesn't start, disconnect the player from the computer:
4. slide the power switch downwards into the lock position,
forcing MSC mode
5. connect the player to the computer for charging in MSC mode
for a about 3 hours.
6. while charging use the Sansa Firmware Updater to check for
updates. When not installed already download the Sansa Updater
and run this execute file.
Updates for the player can only be performed in MSC mode.
The updater only works when you're logged in to the computer having administrator's rights and running Windows operating system.

MSC mode means that the computer sees the player as a removable disk. When in MSC mode, always disconnect through the icon "safely remove hardware" in the right corner below of the computer screen.

When the display of the player doesn't react at all after the reset and charging procedure, the battery of the player can:
a. be too far empty or
b. have a fast power loss.
The load of the power supply from the USB ports might be to weak to get the player charged.
When point a. is the case, an extra power adapter connected to a wall socket, providing more power, could help.
When the battery has had many loads it can be at its end of duty cycle. Then battery replacement will be required.

Need more help ? Just post a comment.

Ensure the key lock is not activated by sliding
"Power on/off ( )/Hold" towards the center
position. If your player isn’t already on, turn it on by
sliding "Power on/off ( )/Hold" to the left
and holding until the player turns on.

I have a sansa e260 and it connects and charges on computer and program can be located but computer is not reading that it is connected so can't sync it. Can you help? Thanks. Michele

I found another complaint similar to mine and someone had posted a solution, which also worked on my daughter's Sansa e 260.
I went to settings, then usb mode and selected MSC instead of MTP and computer instantly recognized the hardware and I could sync her music for her! Can't remember name of person who'd posted solution, but thanks heaps!

My 1 GB ilo player's power button is pushed in but it still works when plugged into the computer. I was wondering if the music player would work if it is plugged into a radio with a radio cord. If so,...

The tiny power switch soldered on the circuit board has broken loose, my daughter's did the same exact thing. The only other way to activate it is with the usb-computer connection. Return it for a new one if you can
