Question about iLO (2 GB) MP3 Player

1 Answer

Charging I am not sure how to charge the MP3 player. I have it connected to my computer and it says on the screen that its connected. However when I disconnect it from the computer (after 3 hours) it does not turn on. I did this on different computers as well. Even though I just bought this, does it need a new battery already? If so, how do I locate and remove the battery?

Re: Charging

It runs on a AAA battery for power. Hooking it up to your computer is for adding songs only. Remove the back cover to replace the battery.

I plugged my mp3 player into my computer and how can I tell if it is charging and when it is done charging?

Go to "my computer" (or whatever it's called in your operating system) and right click on the MP3 icon, pick properties it will show a battery with the percent of charging.

I have Sony NW-E503 (256 MB) MP3 Player. I have a problem when am charging my walkman I get a message "CHARGE ERROR". Can someone help me solving this problem? I am charging my player with...

I'm sorry that the Player is not charging as expected. It is possible that the usage of non-original cable will give the Charge Error. Please follow the below troubleshooting steps and check the operation before purchasing the original cable to make sure that the issue is not with the player or the connectivity.

  1. Please make sure that the USB connection to the Computer is secure and firm.
  2. Try connecting the player to a different USB port on the Computer.
  3. Avoid connecting to USB hubs.
  4. Try removing other USB devices otherthan keyboard and mouse.
  5. Restart the Computer and try again.
  6. Try connecting to a different Computer to confirm the issue is not with the Computer.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarifications.

The battery is not charging

You can try and reset the player. resetting a Clip player: 1. Slide and hold the Power switch up for approximately 20 seconds. 2. Release the Power switch. 3. To turn the player on, slide the Power switch up then release instantly.
Some things to check for when your player does not act like its taking a charge.
USB Cable Make sure that the USB cable is properly plugged in and use the original cable that came with your player.
Computer in Hibernation mode Make sure the computer isn't entering hibernation or sleep mode while the device is connected. The computer must be ON in order to charge your player.
USB Port 2.0 Make sure the player is connected to a USB 2.0 port (1.1 occasionally causes charging problems).
USB Port location Try plugging into different USB ports (i.e. USB port in the back of the computer); occasionally the front USB ports have limited power to charge up the device.
Battery Make sure the battery is fully charged. It takes approximately 3 hours to fully charge the battery.
Latest firmware Depending on what Sansa player you have, make sure it's up to date with the latest firmware.
AC charger (optional) AC chargers (sold separately) have a 500-1000 milliamp max output, which provides much better charging ability than a USB port.

I shut down the computer while charging my mp3

Try plugging in the USB connection again. If that doesn't work, unplug it and then press and hold the on button for ten seconds.

Not sure if player is charging

Can you see it in "My Computer"? It will show under "Removable Drive/Storage"

Double click the removable drive to open the folders. Can you see your music, photo and movie folders?

Can you see the player in Coby Manager - under the "DEVICE" tab?

When disconnected from the computer, how long can you listen to the Coby player before it goes off?

If not present in My Computer or in Coby Manager/Device Tab, then it is not plugged in correctly.
a. Disconnect the player from the computer.
b. Wait for it to cycle through "Please Wait" and "Updating Library" screens.
c. Make sure the player is TURNED OFF
d. With player TURNED OFF, reconnect wire to the player then to the computer.
e. You will see a USB connector icon on the player screen and the player charging.

It will appear to be charging all the while it is connected to the computer.
After it has been plugged into the computer for an hour, it should be well charged unless the battery is completely run down. In that case, you need to do an initial 8 hour charge - with the coby player OFF - through the computer. (This one got me when I first got my player!)

f. Use the Coby Manager to disconnect the player (Found HERE CobyMedia Manager fix for MP822 (Windows XP/2000/Vista)

1. Open Coby Manager
2. Go to the DEVICE TAB
3. CLICK on EJECT Button in lower right hand corner.
4. It will have a pop-up screen to ask "Do you want to eject?" Click YES.
5. The second pop-up screen will tell you "The device can now be safely removed from the system."
6. Disconnect the player from the computer.
7. The Coby will now show "Please Wait..."
8. It will take the Coby about 10 minutes on the "Please Wait" screen and then on the "UPDATE the Library" screen - Be PATIENT

You should now have enough battery power to use it. To check the battery level,

1. Turn on the player
2. The battery icon is in the upper right hand corner of the screen - it is ALWAYS RED until it starts to go down... I've not had mine down very far, but believe the red line gets shorter as the battery is wearing down.

Hope this helps.

How do i charge my sansa mp3?

  • Step 1:Plug the appropriate end of the USB link cable that came with your SanDisk MP3 player into the MP3 player itself. The port for this cable can be found on the right side of most models of SanDisk MP3 players.
  • Step 2:Plug the other end of the USB link cable into a free USB port on your computer. This will effectively connect your SanDisk MP3 player to your computer.
  • Step 3:Turn your computer on. This will cause your SanDisk MP3 player to automatically begin drawing power from the computer and charging its battery. On the screen, an indicator light will flash yellow while the player is charging.
  • Step 4:Disconnect the cable from both your MP3 player and your computer when the device has finished charging. You will be able to tell when the charge is complete when the indicator light that previously was flashing yellow appears as solid green.
