I need an mp3 player that would play when you turn the power on without having to press any key or button, as old tape players did when you left the play button pushed, disconnected them form the power outlet and connected them again. Does that exist? I would appreciate your help, thanks!!!

Re: mp3 that would play when power turned on
That is going to be very hard to find - I hope I am not offending anyone, but I think mp3 players are too complicated now for most people to handle. You want to find one, such as a Sansa Clip, that has a "Resume" feature that allows you to leave off where you last started - the only problem is you have to go into the player's menu initially to set the player to Resume. The Apple iPod Nano is another candidate - if you turn it off when you are listening to music, it will resume when you turn it back on. Of course, anything can go wrong - if you have to reset the player for any reason, you will need to get back to your songs manually. If you are looking for a really, super-simple mp3 player that will just work without problems - I can't think of any.

Many Mp3 players often times have no power button, or a On/Off button. Although they probably should, many companies allow buttons to play multi tasks in the ever increasing need to save space.
Most times, pressing the play button, or holding the play button (signified by a right facing triangle) is used to start the mp3 player.
Ipod's do not have a "on?off" button either, you can simply press any button to make it start. holding the play button will allow it to go into a power save mode and "shut down" as well.
There is often a "lock" button you may have to slide or press in order to get it to turn on. This button is there so to no accidentally turn on the mp3 player when you dont need it, and waste battery life.
You have probably turned on the sleep timer.This function sets a time delay to automatically power OFF regardless of playback status.In the SETTINGS menu, use <<and>> to select “Sleep Timer” then press Z and then press the play/pause button.Then use the + or - keys to highlight disable and then press the play pause button again. Let me know if it worked. Sai.
When you power on your MP3 player it will go to the FM radio. 1. Press menu.
2. Go down once and you'll be on "Mode". Press the right button to access the mode menu.
3. You either press the enter button after accessing the menu or go down to select Playback mode (I forget which one it is).
It seems like your E250R is experiencing a temporary system error due to a corrupted song, and needs to be reset.
Try to "Soft Reset" your player, press and hold the "Menu" button until the LCD light and scroll wheel light turn off.
Since the player was probably left on for more than 7 hours (as you indicated), you would need to re-charge the player before proceeding further. Charge it for at least 2-3 hours.
Next, try to format the player to rid of any corruption then re-transfer the songs. If you have subscription songs, then I would suggest to delete the song you last played which caused the error.
I hope this helps. There is another solution for the player, but for now this might actually resolve the issue. Let me know the results. :)
Most things with "Hold" button don't turn off the device. So I surspect there might be a deeper problem.
You could try to check the battery see if it's still good.
As last resourt, you could try to open it up and see if some how buttons are permanently pressed. You could even try to power it on without the switches.
Most of this MP3 players (the small 1 that uses only 1 battery) are pretty much self contain so there shouldn't be anything wrong.
