Re: won't recharge

The first step is to change the battery. It's not too hard. If you know what generation iPod you have, go to Newertech dot com & order a battery. They have video walk throughs on their site as well. If that doesn't work, It probably means the iPod is dead.

SwimP3 not holding a charge

Possible that the device was in shelf for sometime and the battery had developed reverse emf. The best thing as a last resort is to drain out totally and recharge for a long time, discharge again and repeat this recharging process for some time. Sometimes it might change the cells to live. I hope my advise will be useful . Good Day

It won't turn on

If you can turn your Player while being plugged into your computer then the issue is your rechargeable battery (otherwise it may be electonically dead).
All MP3 player with inbuilt rechargeable battery do eventually need to have the battery replaced, at a often un-economical cost, after some 18 months or 500 charge cycles.

After down loading music player went off won,t recharge

This player is effectively destroyed by using it on a computer that runs either Windows Media Player 11 or Vista. You can try doing a repair in Philips Device Manager, but this is very nearly an obsolete mp3 player.

Usb recharging does not work

I have seen this many times. Your battery is most likely depleted to the point that it is incapable of sending a signal to the computer. You will more than likely need to have you battery replaced. You can jump start your iPod with a wall charger, but you lost yours. A simple charger can be bought off of eBay for less than ten dollars. If you get a wall charger and nothing happens, your iPod is dead but it sounds like a battery issue.

Nothing happens when ON switch is pressed.

Have you tried recharging the MP3 player? I too have a Sansa Clip which I play in the car so I don't often see the "battery low' message, but when I recharge it the MP3 player works again. I understand it takes longer to recharge from the computer so I bought a recharger I plug into the wall.
