I get nothing from my player.

The unit will not turn on and nothing happens when connected via USB to my computer. I've had it for 1 yr and it has not worked for a couple months.

I just had this problem again this morning and solved it in about a minute. For my player all I do is hold the "on" button down for about one minute (maybe a minute and a half) then try to turn it on normally a few seconds later. It has always solved my problem!

Can't turn on my mp3 player. I have tried to hold the volume buttom but it does not turn on at all.


what type of mp3 player ?

Charge your MP3 player.

The battery might just be dead, in which case letting it charge for a few hours corrects the problem.


Plug the USB data cable into the USB port on the MP3 player and insert the other end into one of the USB ports on your computer.


In a moment, the computer states that it has detected the removable device.

Sometimes the MP3 player needs to update itself, and it can only do so while connected to a computer.


When the MP3 player detects the computer, it attempts to connect to the Internet and retrieve any system updates available for the device.

Replace the battery.


The battery is usually the first part of the MP3 player to go (especially after excessive use). Although you can manually change the battery on most MP3 players, you need to send your


Apple products (iPod, iPod Nano, iPod Touch, iPhone) into the company so they can change the battery for you.


Purchase a new MP3 player.

If your MP3 player has received any sort ofwater damage, it is not going to turn on at all and there is nothing you can do to fix the issue.


hope this helps

Unit will not turn on


Your battery is recharged when connected to your computer. Turn the player off and connect it to your computer via the USB cord. The computer must be turned on. Initial charge should be for 10 hours with subsequent charges 3 to 4 hours for a full charge. A quick charge of 1-1/2 hours will give you a 70 percent charge. A fully charged battery will last up to 15 hours under normal use.

MWZ-S615F will not charge or connect


I'm sure it's the cable that's not functioning properly. Mine started doing the same thing and after wiggling and adjusting the cable inside the MP3 itself, the computer finally recognized it and I was free to charge and add music. Also you can try to connect it to a different USB port on your computer. The beeps however are news to me, unless I just never noticed. One piece of advice is to never let the MP3 battery die, because after I let it happen mine began to experience more severe problems.

Try adjust the USB cable and/or switch which USB port it's connected to on your computer. Also just patiently let the player sit and try not to perform any other actions on the computer. When mine did this, I opened Media Player, wiggled the USB cable and waited. Eventually it connected and worked correctly.

Hi my yp-t10 2GB can't be switched on


There is one last ditch method, but this is most likely a hardware issue that cannot be resolved without replacement:
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.

This is the worst mp3 player ever invented - i have to tell you this up front. There is no driver, the company does not support the product anymore - I would return it now while you still can.

Either the device is bad, the pc port is bad, or the software is faulty. Try connecting to different usb port, then a usb port on a different pc with a compatible os. If still not recognized, then there is physical damage to player.

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.
