How would I lock and unlock the mp3 player. I have the Coby MP610-4G player.

The power switch on the side doubles as the lock. Slide it down (away from the "HOLD" position) to unlock it.

You did everything that could be done - the internal switch that lets the device know that the hold is not in the hold position is obviously broken - call Radio Shack and find out if you are still in warranty.

Mp3 player says key locked system shut down

I had this same problem on another RCA player.. with no instructions manual it was hard to figure out what keys locked meant. Then I noticed a little slider on the side of the player, it has a little icon of a pad lock on it. Once I slid this back, the keys lock problem went away and I was able to listen to my music once again.

My best guess of what keys locked means.. you don't want you mp3 player to turn on when you put it in your pocket with your keys, so you change the slider to be locked, when your sit down and your keys are pressing against your on button, the mp3 player will shut off... as we all have experienced in frustration.. saving your battery.

Perhaps RCA should make this slider bright orange so it pops out and does not blend in so much, or they should put it right next to the on button.

Messed Up.

hi what you need to do is put the mp3 into recovery mode to do this follow these instructions
1 with mp3 player off push hold/lock button to lock position(this is what you press to stop you pressing buttons when its playing it locks the buttons out) switch this to lock
2 press and hold rec button on left hand side keep holding down
3 whilst holding rec switch mp3 player on keep holding rec button untill it comes on it should now say recovery mode.

Dont do this whilst plugged into computer and dont plug into computer after its in recovery mode untill told to

once its in recovery mode got sandisk website and download the latest firmware once you have downloaded it onto your computer then open the file on your computer it will then talk you through the rest of the procedure this will solve your problem.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

My mp3 lock is stuck. Please Help!

I contacted RCA and they said to make sure that the switch on the side is in the unlock position. If that does not work resest it by taking the battery out for one minute. That did not work for mine so she said it was defective. Since I did not have a receipt or an exact date of purchase, they will only refund me $42.55, and I think it only has a one year warranty, after that your on your own. Hope this helps.
