Doesn't power up replaced batteries

I had the player plugged into the computer and was transferring files to the player. I unhooked the player and the screen went blank. I tried powering it up and the ilo screen would flash "ilo" and that goes blank. I changed the batteries twice.

Re: doesn't power up replaced batteries

This is the worst mp3 player ever invented - i have to tell you this up front. There is no driver, the company does not support the product anymore - I would return it now while you still can.

Either the device is bad, the pc port is bad, or the software is faulty. Try connecting to different usb port, then a usb port on a different pc with a compatible os. If still not recognized, then there is physical damage to player.

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

I want to download an album from my computer to my Insignia mp3. When I plug the player into my computer all I get is the charging screen. I want to get the album from media player.Jerry

When the player connects only with the charging display, there are 3 points that need to be checked:

Battery and cable connection
1. Connecting the player to the computer, the charging symbol should start loading; battery "green" or "partly green" indication. The player should respond with "OK to disconnect" = connection established correctly.
For proper charging and connection put the USB cable plug directly to the computer preferred at the back side: not through a hub or card reader.

MSC mode
2. The player is switched to MSC mode. MSC = Mass Storage Class. In this mode the device is seen as a flash drive also called removable disk, that can be accessed using Windows Explorer.
The Hold switch was in hold position on the top side, before connecting to the computer.

Disconnect the player and release the hold switch. Next the player should be in standard MTP mode. MTP = Media Transfer Protocol used for transferring files with media software.

MTP mode
3. The media software on the computer for transferring files is not installed or not working properly. Update or reinstall the media software.

Manual for Insignia NS-DV2G:

When this didn't help the firmware on the player needs to be reinstalled.

I plugged my 1GB sylvania mp3 player into the computer wrong and now it won't cut on. what do i do?

Plugging in the player the wrong way on the computer may have fried it. If your computer can recognize and identify the files stored on the player when it is plugged in properly, copy the files to your hard drive for transferal on a new replacement mp3 player.

Mp3 file transfer

When you plug an mp3 into a Vista computer, it formats the player in a specific way - you will have to reformat the mp3 player on the new computer, which will end up erasing all of your songs - so, no, there is not exactly a way to do what you are trying to do - sorry

Hello This is Bill MacLean See my earlier post on same problem of dead yp-f and also my reply to member wanting to replace battery. As you can see I had tried pretty well everything when I stumbled on a solution that worked for mine. Follow my directions in other post to remove Battery. Reassemble without
battery and hook up to usb/miniplug to computer.Unit is now powered only by computer usp and the battery is not interfering with
computer now recoginizing the unit. Reformat and reload the O/S
that came with the unit or download the firmware upgrader from Samsung. When you have access transfer some songs and unhook from compuer (remeber o use usb tray icon to stop unit as I think this is what crashed mine) Dissamble unit and replace battery and turn on. E-mail me if this works for yours of if it was a one time fluke with mine.

I have Sanso m250 2.0gb mobel. Logo screen is appearing when i power on after that i am unable to play the mp3 songs or play FM Radio etc..

Try doing a hard reset on a Sansa m250:
  1. Turn off the Sansa. Just pull the battery out for a second.
  2. Plug the Sansa into a computer4.gif, and open "My Documents" in the computer.
  3. Open the Sansa file as if it were a drive, then go to the "MUSIC4.gif Specific storage" file.
  4. Right click the "MUSIC Specific storage" file, and press "Format."
This should hard reset the Sansa m250. I do not know if this will work on other Sansa m200 type .mp3 players. You can start over with your playlists. This has worked for me.

Sansa won't charge or load.

Plug it into the computer (the cord you would use to charge it and transfer files), and hold down the power button for at least 15 seconds. The Sansa should then begin to turn on and start charging. :)

No response, no turn-on, dead player! help!

Same thing just happened to my M260, did you ever get an answer? Thanks, Jeff. Problem: No response, no turn-on, dead player! help!by mtx410 on Aug 28, 2006 I was loading files, when the transfer locked up, and the computer threw an error. i couldn't do anything but unplug the player! After I did this, i tried plugging it back in, and half of the world "initializing" popped up on the screen, the first half was missing! it did not do anything more. so i unplugged it again. Now when I plug it in, nothing happens. The computer recognizes that new hardware is plugged in, but cannot recognize what it is. Nothing comes on the mp3 player's screen. It will not power up when i hit the power button. It has no response, it acts like there is no battery in it. I have taken the battery out, and put it back in. Nothing happens when any of the buttons are pressed, or when it is plugged into the computer. Is there anything I can do to get this thing working again! It is the M260 if that matters.

Unable to clear non music files from mp3?

I'm a bit confused by your description, but you ARE talking about non music files... Is it possible at all that you deleted system files from your player? If so it really wouldn't respond. Try going into Recovery Mode; remove battery, hold power switch to ON, replace battery, release power switch when the Recovery Mode screen appears on the screen. Run Option 1 CleanUP, after it completes run Option 4 Restart. You will get a Rebuilding Library screen when it reboots, that's normal, then it should go back to your startup screen. Another thing to try is recovering you system files through a firware upgrade/install. I'm not sure it will work, but would you mind being a guinea pig? let us know how it turned out. Good luck
