Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Hi, Recently bought a Jensen smpv 4gbs and it wont charge or turn on. I have read the posts relating to this issue on this forum and have tried all suggestions, but no matter which buttons I push, the device wont turn on. When I connect the device to my pc, the computer and usb cord picture will show however it doesnt indicate that the device is charging nor will it turn on after being plugged into the pc after 3hrs. Can someone please let me know if I am meant to be seeing a charging symbol on the device when connected to the pc? Thanks
I tlooks as if possibly you might have a defective unit. I did some research and you wouldn't be the only one. Either that or maybe try a diffrent USB port, maybe even a usb to wall outlet charger....see if that works. If not I would say its defective.

How to charge the Jensen MP3 player - Model smpg-v2bub
Ignore instructions that came with it - they don't work.
Here's how to charge - I discovered this with mine:
1. When computer is on and at windows screen, attach cable from computer to mp3player with mp3 turned player off. It will immediately show you a connect screen on the mp3 player.
2. pressed the left side middle button twice - this will turn it on and go into music like you're playing a song.
3. Now turn the mp3 player on by switching the button on the right side of the device to the on position. It will suddenly show you it's charging - the battery on the front of the mp3 player will have a signal pulsing through it.
4. It will turn off after one minute. It's literally half charged now. Strange I know. Repeat from step 1 and it will fully charged.
If it doesn't fully charge after it turns itself off after 1 minute the 2nd time, then repeat steps from 1, one more time, but this time when it turns itself off after a minute, still leave it connected to the computer for 10 mins even though it looks like it's off. Then disconnect it physically from computer, turn it on with the on button on the right side, press the left side middle button twice and look at the battery on the screen - it should be fully charged now.

Testimonial: "Thank you very much, that would have been very helpful. Truth is, it was my fault, I was pushing the ON button instead of sliding it. DUH Peggy!!!"

If the rechargable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.
