    Mine too. I disassembled it and there was a wire that had broken loose on the volume knob. I resoldered it but it still doesn't work. :(

You may try resoldering all of the connections on the volume knob circuit board. If one of the potentiometer (volume control) connections has broken free of the board, it may not be noticeable, but may hold the component off the board just enough to cause the problem you're having. If that doesn't help, the problem is most likely in the potentiometer itself, and you won't be able to replace it easily.

(If you are going to replace the whole player, I've heard that the sweetpea 3 is a better device. My Blue Hat is still working after making some repairs, so I haven't tried the Sweetpea yet...)

I bought blue hat teach and talk laptop but its volume doesnot work and its on/off button was broken and this teach and talk laptop can not be reund


The On button on mine worked, the clock could be set, it was functional, but we still had no sound. So I removed the screws off the bottom of the laptop and saw that the yellow line to the sound speaker had completely detached and needed to be soldered back on. After that it worked perfect.

Blue Hat toy company mp3 player won't turn on


This solution may not make you any happier, but I had the same problem. The issue is that the batteries are not sending power to the player. Before reading any further, check that the batteries are installed correctly. Anywhere there's a spring in the battery box, the negative end of the battery should be touching the spring (negative is the flat end of the battery, not the end with the bump).

If that doesn't help, what I did was to take apart the toy. Yes, this voids warranties, but I'm not willing to spend time chasing down this company for warranty service when I didn't keep my receipt. The small rubber circles on the back of the player cover the screw holes. Just get something under them and pry up until you have uncovered all 9 screws. Carefully open the case. Inspect the wires that go from the battery case to the circuit board, and from the circuit board to the on/off switch. One of these wires has probably come off because it was badly soldered. Either that, or a wire was pinched until it broke inside the insulation. You can usually see where a wire was pinched. Have someone who knows how to solder replace the suspect wires. Once I did this, my player started working again, and now I know the solder joints will all hold for the life of the device!

*WARNING! Only disconnect and reconnect one wire at a time. If you get wires reversed, not only can you break the device, but the wires the company originally used are too thin and can overheat and melt, potentially causing a fire. This is also a reason to be sure the batteries are removed when soldering...
