I have the same problem. If you turn the unit over, you can see a small hole on th bottom right hang side - (next to USB symbol) - The RESET button is located inside. If you insert a small paper clip and press the button for approx 20 seconds it should function again.
Works for me

This solution only relates to the Windows Operating System.
You have to plug it in to a USB port preferably one at back off computer and you must have Administrative privileges because a normal user can't access system settings. Now right click on the "My Computer" icon. Next click "Properties", then "Hardware" and finally "Device Manager". Once in "Device Manager" scroll down to "Other Devices". Right click on the icon with the yellow exclamation mark or question mark. Then click "Update Driver". This should pop up a "Hardware Update Wizard" window. Instead of clicking "Install The Software Automatically" click the "Install From A List Or Specific Location". Hit "Next", then click "Don't Search. I Will Choose The Driver To Install". After mark sure "Show All Devices" is highlighted which it should be, click "Next". Now finally click something along the lines of USB Media Player or around that. Ok click "Next" once again and wait a little while. What this is doing is installing the driver(s) for your device. Your done click "Finish" to exit.
If your MP3/4 player still isn't seen by Windows it could be your computer or your device's "Firmware". Usually this solution is successful since I use it for any device that is not read by PC.
I know my iMac with Mac OS 9.2 reads this MP3 player fine. 
Anyways if you can't fix the device this way then I don't know what else to say.
Like I said though sometimes it might be the drivers for your device. 
I hope this helps anyone who needs it.

How do I delete music off of a coby mp829 player

I don't have this particular device. Although some players will let you delete files from the device alone, some won't. But an mp3 player should show up on your desktop computer as an external memory storage device when connected via USB. You can open it and delete music files by dragging to trash, or by right-clicking and selecting Delete. (Windows, but probably similar on Mac).

How to reset my combination lock number on ipod A1236

Hi William
If you have forgotten the code or put the wrong code in your ipod, you can unlock the Ipod by doing the following:
Connect your IPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one Ipod synced with), and open iTunes.
When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.
If you can't unlock Ipod using either (the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage its songs). . . you can restore your ipod to factory settings using ipod Updater.
Please note that this will erase all data on your ipod.
Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your ipod.
If you want to change the primary computer that your Ipod is associated with, do this:
1. Restore your iPod. WARNING: The restore process cannot be undone.
All of your songs and files will be deleted.
Always make a backup of your important data.
2. Connect your ipod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer.
3. Open iTunes and synchronize.
If you can't unlock your ipod and you don't have access to the primary computer, your only option is to restore the Ipod, which will erase all music and data.
Please take time to rate me

My ipod is just playing without the sound carrying through to the speakers. I dont know how to make it work?

Verify there is nothing plugged into the headset port, including headsets, headphones, or adapters.
Original iPhone only: While on the Home screen, adjust the volume buttons. If you see the icon below, indicating that headphones are attached, there may be debris in the headset port:

To remove debris in the headset port, try connecting a pair of headphones to the headset port and then remove the headphones. Repeat this several times.
If you have paired with a Bluetooth headset that is nearby, either use the headset or turn Bluetooth off (choose Settings > General > Bluetooth).
If that doesn't work, try restarting the iPhone. Hold the Sleep/Wake button until "slide to power off" appears. Slide to power off your device. When it is off, press the Sleep/Wake button to turn it back on.
If restarting the iPhone doesn't resolve the issue, try restoring the device.

Just one button wont work

That could be a software glitch with the Ipod not recognizing the button when in use.

Here is a clause on Motorolas website about it:

This device supports Bluetooth Advanced Audio Delivery, Audio Video Remote Control, Hands-free, and Headset profiles. In order for Bluetooth devices to communicate with one another, they must utilize the same Bluetooth profile. To determine the profiles supported by other Motorola devices, visit For other devices, contact their respective manufacturer.
Certain Bluetooth features including those listed may not be supported by all compatible Bluetooth-enabled devices, and/or the functionality of such features may be limited in certain devices, or by certain wireless carriers. Contact your wireless carrier about feature availability and functionality.
