Question about Toshiba gigabeat S MP3 Player
My Gigabeat has been working fine. But all of a sudden it will not turn on. When I press the power button the battery indicator flashes (and looks empty). This would typically tell you the battery is dead and needs to be recharged. I then try plugging it into my laptop via USB cable to charge, but the same thing happens. The battery flashes for a few seconds and then the unit turns off. I cannot get the unit to charge anymore. I tried switching the hold on and off - nothing. I tried switching the master slide thing at the bottom and still nothing. please help.
I called and they told me,i have the same problem, to just turn the battery switch ( bottom thing) off and charge it over night via wall outlet. hope it helps im trying it as i type so i wouldn't know...

The battery has discharged to far for it to be charged via the USB cable. Use the included power supply to plug it into a wall outlet and let it charge there for a few hours.
