Possibly the batter may have gone dead. How long have you had the MP3 player? If maybe it hasn't been used in a while how was it stored? Cold? Heat? Lots of moisture. But really if it is old most likely then it can't hold a charge anymore. Thing to try is just buying another battery and see if it will work and if that doesn't work well, say goodbye to the MP3 maybe unless you know of a place that can fix the internals.

The mp3 player won't turn on when i press play/pause


I had the same exact problem as you, and the only way to fix this is to return your Polaroid. I figured out that something goes wrong on the charging system and it dosent charge the battery at all, that explains why when you plug you player into you computer it starts working. You would be better off buying a high quality mp3 player.

I am trying to recharge the battery, but it doesn't want to charge. I have plugged in to my laptop but it is still not charging. What do I do next??


I have the same one but the silver model.. On Sunday I opened mine to try to remove the dust on the screen from the inside, How does that happen? While trying to open it and move the computer like board inside to get to the screen to blow the dust off, it accidently broke off the wires to battery to the board. Now only plays when hooked up to the computer.


I also had a sansa clip mp3 player and used to charge it overnight and remove it in the morning to use but after a while it quit qorking and would only work if connected to a computer, the people at sansa said i probably burned out the battery because I would charge it for too long of time which it only needed 2-4 hours for complete charge not overnight which I always did. I also opened that one Sunday for first time to clean the screen and noticed oe wire from battery to board was broke off, that might have been the problem instead of the battery being burned out.

Open your's up and check the wires from the battery to the board maybe one is broken.

When you hook it up to your laptop open up my computer, and is it even being recognized by the laptop? In my computer under devices with removable devices it will say:
Since my computer is old mine say but will be similar for you:
3 1/2 Floppy(A:) (D:) CD-Rom Drive on back of computer- Left USB Port Removable Device (E:)
Right USB Port Removable Device (F:)

If the computer is not recognizing the device it will not charge. Also you'll know the computer is recognizing it because when I hook mine up a screen will pop up asking me what i would like to do with the mp3 player such as open with media player, take no action at all, etc.

The player won't turn on.


Hey illinifansx5,

Have you tried plugging in the unit to your PC and then pressing the reset button for 5 seconds?

Also, try removing the battery for 30 seconds, then replace and attempt to charge.

If these options don't work, it may be a hardware or battery failure and you should try to return it.
