Broken power button

The button to power up my unit broke. It just sunk in when I pressed it to power it on. It is still in there. It still turns on when I plug it in the usb port. I opened up the unit, but I really don't know what to do. Any suggestions???

How do you turn it on


The power switch is at the bottom of the unit. However you must follow this combination to get the unit to power up

To power the player on, set the power switch to the ON position, then press and hold the PLAY button for 5 seconds

To power the player off - first press and hold the PLAY button for 5 seconds, then set the power switch to the OFF position.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

Hello can you help me??

pull it apart. carefully lever off the cover from the power switch, and remove the small broken bit of black plastic. (it's that broken bit that is your problem.) BE CAREFULL not to disturb the small round metal contact.
now when you poke the small round metal contact you should hear it click as it turns on and off.
to be able to do this when you've put the covers back on, drill a small hole in the back cover above where the contact is. Then you can turn on/off the player by poking a paper clip through the hole.

Slide control broken on Creative Zen

If the slider is physically broken it should be able to be fixed.

If “broken” means the slider is frozen, the unit may just need to be reset.

To reset your Zen, gently press a pen head, pin, paper clip, etc into the hole under the power button for 20 seconds. This should reset the unit.

Thank you,

Pixxo mp3 player can not find disk on pc when conected to USB port.

El Passo 77.. TO play MUSIC... on a PD-A288 PIXXO MP3 player (this works on my 4GB unit):
1) turn on pixxo player (press and HOLD then BIG >| button for 4 seconds).
2) use the left-right button to highlight the MSC (MUSIC) icon
3. press the left-right button into the pixxo (avoid making it go left or right when you do this!!!)
4) Now use the left-right button to select a song.
5) now press the BIG >| button on top to begin playing the song that you selected.
6) you will see in the upper right corner numbers like 00:00 (secs into song) and a MM:SS total length.
7) To pause the song, press the BIG >| button. So >| acts as a toggle between PAUSE and PLAY.

My coby mp3 player will not turn on

I had the same issue with mine. Upon opening the unit, I found that one of the solders for the power switch was broken. A touch of solder fixed the problem.

My player won't turn on!!!

The m25 will not power on if LOCK/UNLOCK is in the locked position. If you press the POWER button, a padlock will appear on the LCD to remind you that the unit is locked. Confirm that the LOCK/UNLOCK switch is not in the locked position and press POWER to turn it on. If nothing happens after pressing the POWER button, the battery is probably discharged.
