My Jukebox will not take the charge

IF you remove the battery does it function the same way? that would indicate that the battery is not connected into the circuit.. loose connection or broken wire.

My Sony Walkman MP3 player will not power on. I thought that it was because the charger was broken, so I bought a new one. To my surprise, it was not the charger.

If the battery was completely dead you may need to leave it plugged in for a few minutes for the battery to be charged enough to turn the unit on. Also sometimes the battery can be so bad that it will no longer take a charge. The charging mechanism inside your GPS may not be charging the battery properly either.

Archos not charging

You don't say how old the device/battery is. Does it fail right out of the box new? This behavior can be common with an older failing battery. If this occurs in a new device then it is faulty and needs be sent back on warranty.

Not charging

Try connecting directly to USB port on your computer, NOT a hub. It needs power to charge.

ZVM won't charge

Usually this problem is due to the firmware. If you upgrade the firmware to version 1.62.02, this problem usually will disappear. The older firmwares have problems in recognizing the battery and allowing the battery to power the unit.

Here is what you'll need to do to save your Zen: you will need a charger for the operation. I recommend buying a brand new charger from the Creative Labs website or a used one here, instead of getting an aftermarket one off Ebay. Aftermarket ones tend to cause problems or fail to work altogether.

Plug in the wall charger and USB cable at the same time. Your Zen should power on when connected the charger. Once it is powered on, connect the USB cable to your computer.

If your Zen does not power on when connected to the charger, your unit is dead and its time to replace it or get the motherboard replaced via one of the Repair services offered on this website.
Download the firmware to your PC, then reboot your PC and connect the Zen via USB cable. Open the firmware icon to begin the download.


If the upgrade button on the firmware window is not available, it is also time to replace your motherboard due to corruption of a chip on the board.

New Battery Charge?

This means your unit does not see the battery and is running on AC power only. You need to check and make sure that your battery polarity is correct making sure that positive goes to positive, and negative to negative. If you can attach some photos, that might help also.

Zen Vision M battery not charging

The problem was partially solved in that I put my old battery back in and at least it charged properly. I did receive a new battery from BatteryMill and I fitted it and left it charging for 5 hours. However, when I unplugged it to see if it had charged at all it did the low battery thing and then when I tried to recharge it the battery fully charged symbol ame up. I suspect that had I left the new battery charging for say 24 hours it might have charged fully. However, I have decided to send my batteries back and get a refund. The problem must be something to do with a battery memory problem.
