At the bottom of the unit there is a reset push this button once and it should start up.

Re: I cant get it to even turn on

Hold the power button down and then rapidy plug and unplug the ac power until you see the screen flash. Then remove the ac and try to power up. If it doesn't work try to remove and reinsert the battery several times while holding the power button down. It took me a while to figure that out, but it works for me.

Remove battery and use it off A/C power adapter, mine only works this way, maybe shorted battery.

Ativa Mobil IT PT15. Won't turn on.

I had the same problem with these. I charged it overnight on the computer and got nothing. I hooked them up to a wall charger about 5 mins (until they turned on for a second), then I hooked them up to the computer and they worked fine. This worked on all 3 of the ones my kids got for Christmas.

Purchase a usb power plug to plug your device into the wall if it charges then your computer just needs to re install the device driver

My ipod nano wont do anything

  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.

Hope this helps

My Ipod Nano Wont Charge on the wall Charger.

Hello Kawase,

I would suggest you try charging the unit this one time by connecting it to the computer. I suspect that the charger may be defective if plugging the wall charger into the iPod has no effect on the low battery warning. If the iPod is able to be charged from the USB port on your computer that would tend to confirm that the charger is not working. If the iPod does not charge when connected to either the computer or the wall charger then you may very well have a another defective iPod.

Best Regards

No space for db error message

I have the same issue on my Samsung YP-T7JZ player. Nowhere has a solution. Search on web for days, nothing found. Only solution is, throw it against the wall. Collect the pieces and send them back to the manufacturer because these tech supporters don't know what this issue is.
