It won't charge

Today, after use, it only had one bar of battery. I plug it into my computer's USB drive and it has not gotten any more battery than it had-in 3 hours time.
Help!

Why isnt my ipod charging?


iPod's battery doesn't charge


Several things could keep your iPod's battery from charging. The major causes are listed below in logical order. Check each one to see if it's what's keeping your battery from charging.


Low-powered USB port

iPods that connect to USB ports require a high-power USB port.

Keyboards and some USB hubs will not charge iPod. Connect iPod directly to the computer or to a USB AC power adapter. Click here for more information.

Connect directly to computer

If you connect iPod to something that connects to the computer (like a USB hub or FireWire drive), connect iPod directly to the USB or

FireWire port on the computer.

FireWire port on a Windows PC

The FireWire (IEEE 1394) ports on some Windows-compatible computers may not be powered, and consequently won't charge iPod when you plug it in. Check here to see if the FireWire port on your PC can charge iPod.

Your computer goes to sleep

Your computer can only charge iPod when it's turned on and not asleep. Make sure your computer is on and not set to go to sleep when you want to charge iPod. Tip:

Some Macintosh computers can charge iPod even though they're asleep.
If your sleeping computer doesn't charge iPod, don't worry, just wake it and let iPod charge.


hope this helps

My onxy mp3 player won't charge despite being plugged into my USB port for hours


If the MP3 player battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

I have a polaroid pmp350-4 it doe not seem to charge. after 4 to 5 hours on charge the display shows minimal charge.


The answer is easy. Your computer USB is too weak to supply it juice needed. The best answer is to get yourself a wall power supply to usb that will give it more juice. You will know it is working when the battery that pops up on the screen actually MOVES from bottom to top more quickly than Sonic the Hedgehog moves versus the steady 'stay in place' or a snail's pace upward as I like to call it when plugged into the computer. You'll get your player charged in 2 hours versus 15 hours plugged into the computer and you have the bonus of the battery holding the charge better than the PC way where I've seen the battery be at the top and then you watch 1 video and it drops 4-5 bars. Use the faster, better charging method and it'll stay up there the whole time.

How do u charge battery


You should have gotten a cord with the unit. One end plugs into the slot at the bottom of the unit (with the logo facing up) and the other end plugs into a powered USB slot, such as on your computer. This is also the same connection you use to transfer music and videos to the unit.

How do i change the battery




  1. Remove the cap over the USB plug and insert the unit into the USB port of a desktop or laptop computer. The computer will recognize the Sansa Express as a new hard disk drive.


  2. Locate the battery icon on the upper right of the screen. The battery icon will fill in with color as the unit charges. When the icon is filled in, the charge is complete. The unit will fully charge in about 3 hours as long as the desktop computer or laptop is powered on.

  3. Plug the unit into the USB port of a car or AC adapter and then plug the adapter into an AC outlet or an auto cigarette lighter socket, as the case may be. The Sansa Express will charge in about 3 hours.

My sanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player will not charge anymore. At least not on the computer I'm on. I have had it hooked up to charge for 2 days now and nothing. Why is this and how can I charge it?


This is direct from the sansa FAQs at http://www.sansa.com/support/sansa_clip/faqs 02. Why won’t my Sansa Clip charge when I connect it to my computer? USB Cable
Make sure that the USB cable is properly plugged in and use the original cable.

Computer in Hibernation mode
Make sure that the computer isn’t entering hibernate or sleep mode while the device is connected. The computer must be on in order to charge your player.

USB Port 2.0
Make sure your player is connected USB 2.0 port (1.1 occasionally causes charging problems).

USB Port location
Try plugging in different USB port (i.e. USB port in the back of the computer); sometimes the front USB ports have problem charging up the device.

Battery
Make sure the battery is fully charged. It takes approximately 3 hours to fully charge the battery.

Latest firmware
Make sure to update firmware by downloading and installing the Sansa Firmware Updater.

Recharging mp3


Whenever the PD-6070 is connected to a PC, it will charge. The battery indicator on the OLED screen will slowly fill over and over as it is charging. When the charging is complete, the battery indicator will stay filled.

Audiophase MP3 player


I had the same problem, so I got fed up and threw it against the wall...... Just kidding. I have a Motorola phone that uses a mini-USB plug-in charger. So I connected it to the mp3 player and plugged it in, looking for smoke. And Wala! it started to charge. The mp3 player has to be on. When you see a battery icon and it simulating being filled up, then you know that it is charging. Once it stops filling up, it's done. Good luck!

Also, if you use the USB cable in you computer, make sure that the mp3 player is on. I had absolutely no luck on charging this way, but maybe you can.
