Question about Coby MP828 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Before I purchased my Coby M28 I went to a website where it said that particular MP3 player would hold a charge and play up to 25 hours. Hah! I'm lucky if I get 3 hours.

I just think I should get more than 3 hours per charge. I'm just playing subliminal background music, nothing loud or intense, so why is it draining so fast and is there anything I can do to improve the length of time in between charges?

If you are stopping it, adjusting it (volume up and down), or shuffling through songs it will drain it quicker - setup playlist so you don't shuffle through music find a good volume and leave it there and if you need to pause the music just take out your headphones instead of pausing the unit

SOURCE: CAN'T HEAR MUSIC ON MP3 PLAYER

I had this problem and it is actually a two fold problem. If anyone comes here and finds this before tossing their player. It is the same for the older 256 mg Coby players as well.
The first problem I solved after much todo. Here is the problem. The players DO NOT recognize MP3 files for playing. Yes for real. Coby screwed up big time here. I can't find any way to reprogram the player to recognize mp3's for playing but it will store them fine. I can load all the wave and WMA files I want it runs fine but will not play any actual mp3's. I have XP media Pro platform and if you open media player, highlight the music file and convert it to a wma it will play. Do not be alarmed by the warnings about corrupting the files. save them in a different folder and your existing mp3's will still be there.
Now the second problem is not as easy to solve. Why? Licenses. If you do not have the license for a song ot the original cd with the license to copy songs from it it will load the song but will not play it. I found this out by loading songs one at a time and checking the properties of each . I there was no license, no works.
Here's how it goes. If you load an mp3 and it is mixed with wma or wav files when the player hits those songs it either stops flashing and playing or the light goes out and it may look as though the battery is dead. Restart and it runs to the same spot and stops.
Put the player in a usb then go to explore files. remove any mp3 files or wma that needs a license. one at a time. Yea it stinks and take forever, mine took 3 hours for 15 songs till I knew what to look for and how to do it. Yours should go faster. Pass this around or a lot of people are going toss alot of $$$ for nothing.
If these are your symptoms I bet this is the solution.
Hey COBY pass this on in a FAQS, I did all the work now make it happen forr those who bought these players

My coby mp 550 mp3 player is not turing on i chared ir all night bet when i pres play( tunr on ) butin nothing hepens


Please check and make sure that the HOLD switch is in the corresponding position.
Then try to charge it via the USB cable connected to your computer for about half an hour and after press play.
If the problem persists connect it to the pc and format the drive that is named as removable disk.
Unfortunately in this case your media files will be disappeared after it.
I hope this can help you because if the battery of the device is good then you should make firmware recover or upgrade but no files are accessible on the coby website to do it up to now.
If none of these help you can carry it to service center.
Good luck!

How do I recharge Coby MP3 player? I plugged into USB port for over an hour but it stopped playing after about 20 minutes. Do I need to replace the battery or charge it longer or both? Thanks. Claudia


Coby MPC7085 requires a 12 hours charge when used for the first time.
Always use a direct connection to the computer when charging with the USB cable: a hub or cardreader should be self-powered.
See page 12 of the manual:

Coby MP550 MP3 player problem


1. Make sure the hold switch is in the "off" position.
2. If the light comes on but your media doesn't play, it could be that you've load files which have DRM applied. The player does not support DRM, and thus can't play the files.Try playing a file that you are 100% certain does not have DRM applied.
3. If the light does not come on, the battery is fried (if LiPo batteries discharge past a certain point, they have a tendency not to recharge, no matter how long you leave it on charge). Return the player to the store where you purchased it.

Coby MP-C7095 Won't turn on


On my Colby player there is a small reset hole in the back. Mine has sometimes just stopped playing and shuts off. If you use a small wire (paperclip works well) push it in and reset it.

Player is not turning on


Sometimes I must hold the play button down for over 7 seconds on my unit to get it to turn on. See also the answer to the question on properly charging the unit; i.e, have the slide switch in the "off" position.
If you are using a USB hub to charge the mp3 player then the hub must be powered.

Coby MP-C582 Will not turn on


Check on the side of the player and make sure it is not locked that was why ours would not turn on. Once I unlocked it worked fine
