The MP3 player is charged by connecting the supplied USB cable to the
MP3 player and then plugging the other end of the USB cable into the USB
port of a working computer. You can also purchase a 5 volt mains USB adapter. Connect the MP3 player and USB cable to this 5 volt mains USB adapter to charge the MP3 player.
MP3 players are usually charged by the supplied USB cable when it is connected to a computer's USB port. You can purchase an USB mains adapter and you can then connect the MP3 player with the USB cable into this USB mains adapter.
Try to charge it via a battery charger. Change a USB cable to connect PC to make sure the USB cable is good. And change PC to charge the mp4 player. Compare the results, you will know where the problem is.
I had the same problem! Went on Sony trouble shooter found this - Cause:
Battery is 100% discharged. Therefore, PC's USB with 5V/500mA set up has not enough power to start up the charging process because loading current is greater than the set up, therefore USB is disabled immediately due to sudden current load. Remedy:
Battery must not be discharged 100%
If it happens then the supplied AC adaptor must be used firstly because it is providing 5V/800mA power. After a couple of minutes the unit can be connected to PC without problem then it can continue the charging during file transfer, etc.
Basically when the battery is totally flat the computer power is not strong enough to charge the battery and run the mp3 player! I bought a usb adapter charger and charged it up and now it works!
HOPE IT WORKS FOR YOU!
The user guide (p 7) mentions pressing the Power On/Off/Stop button (presumably only once, but see below) to charge the battery if the charging does not start automatically when the uncharged player is connected via USB.
The following is from Memorex online FAQs. Hope it might be helpful:
Connect the player with the supplied USB cable. After the cable is connected, press the power button twice. The battery icon in the upper right corner will start filling with bars as it charges.
