Re: MP3 Player

What is the model number of your unit? If your unit is a K5 MP3 player, basically there are no other way to change the battery of your device the only way to fix it is to send it back to SAMSUNG.

I have an iq sound 4700 that i bought two days ago but it seems that its taking longer to charge.whenever i take the plug out, i cant switch it on. need help ASAP?

dear, you do not mentioned that how long stand by your battery gives you after charging.
and if your mp3 every showed battery full after charging.
well since your mp3 player is new, it must not have any problem in battery, i think your charges has some fault. Go to the shop where you purchased your mobile.
they may make it for free.
if your battery shows charged full, and gives a long stand by, then your battery is 100%good.
you need to change your charges, or an integrated circuit which help to keep charging you mp3 player., this circuit defines how long it have to take to charge you mp3 player.

best of luck!

My nextar will not turn on and it is straight out of the packaging. When the usb is plugged in, the two default songs are listed, and they are able to be played. Please help me with this issue, as I...

I think you have a new device and you wanted to use it at first and the battery wasn't charged.
The player has a built-in lithium-icon rechargeable battery. It is charged via USB connection. You
are required to charge it when you use it for the first time. It takes about 3 hours to fully charge the
battery. Connect the larger end of the USB cable to the USB interface of PC, and connect the
other smaller end of the USB cable to the USB interface of this player. The device is connected to
PC and being charged.
For maximum performance, lithium-ion batteries need to be used often. If you don't use
the device often, be sure to recharge the battery at least once per month.
I hope your item will work fine after the battery is charged.

I cant charge my zenv mp3 so i need someone to help!!!!!!!

Hello there,

Apparently your battery is dead.. Just install a replacement battery and it will be alright. If I am not wrong this player uses 3V, 1200mAH battery. Please verify before buying the replacement. It should cost you around 15-20$

My ipod wont recharge

If you are using the same charging cable, you might check the cable. Borrow a friends cable to see if you can charge and if you can charge with someone elses cable, buy a new one for yourself.

Iriver H10 20GB

They don't make a battery for the player. My experience with iriver is that they only replace your player with another refurbished one if it's under warranty. Contact and go to support, they will help you to a certain point. Sounds like some music files are corrupted, did you download them from Limewire? Lots of nasty stuff out there. Remember your player is a Hard Drive just like your PC and can be damaged by improper disconnect from your PC. Regards, John H.
