My Dell MP3 Player Won't Charge

My battery is pretty much dead and I keep trying to recharge the battery, but it won't charge. When I plug it it to either the computer or to an outlet, all it does is turn on. Can someone please help me?

    same issue with it not charging all I can get it to do is flash, tried finding a replacement but no one seems to offer a 660 mAh LP battery anymore, it is a creative labs battery, BA20203R60700, Dell dosen't support this unit and I let them know that it is bull.

    I have the Dell Pocket DJ MP3 Player, the battery wont take a charge. That wouldn't be a problem if I could find out how to open it and replace the battery. Called DELL and found out, they do not have a battery and wont service it either! Which leaves me with a USELESS MP3 player unless I have it plugged into the AC adapter! Does anyone have any suggestions, other than throw it away?

I had the same problem for weeks. Very frustrating. Try the following as it brought my pocket dj back to life. I found that (while plugged into an AC adapter) by inserting a paper clip in the hole on the bottom (reset button) and holding it there for 5 secs it would power cycle the dj then the charging icon would appear in the top left corner, however it did go away after 5 icon flashes. I did this repeatedly. I noticed that every time I pwr cycled it , I got more icon flashes and it would charge for a bit longer. Finally it charged completely. Weird but this is what worked for my player.

Buy a mini USB cable at your local dollar store and break off the mini end. Take out the battery and then take pins 1 & 4 (Red & Black) and apply to battery directly for a while ( about 15 - 20 minutes should do it). Then take a non-broken mini USB cable and plug it in then turn off DJ. Some DJs for some reason will only charge on USB 2.0. If the DJ falls under 5% charge ( I think 5%) it will not charge so this approach would solve that problem.

Batteries r not charging What could be the problem and could it be repaired


Hello

First, make sure your batteries are rechargeable. But even rechargeable batteries have a lifespan, try charging it into another charger. If it is charging on another charger, then that means your charger is faulty. If it won't charge on another charger, then the batteries are dead, and you need to buy new set of batteries.

Assuming that you've tried a different electrical outlet, it may have a defective charger or a totally dead rechargeable battery.

Battery not recharging


All batteries die sooner or later. I believe you have a dead cell.

1) Find another machine that uses the same battery and try it or
2) try another battery or
3) Give up and buy a new battery.

Good luck.
