Re: blinking on & off

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 have a craig mp4 player model CMP616F and i just bought it, charged it, loaded songs and used it 1 time. now when i turn it on a hour glass comes on the screen and blinks and cant do anything else.

i had the same problem with mine searched online and found that someone said to let the battery run completely dead,(turn it on and leave it on til the screen stops blinking) that resets it, and then you charge it for 4 (i think) hours. Worked for mine and I hope it works for you too

Shuffle not working, blinking green-yellow led.

If the status light blinks orange when you press a button, the iPod shuffle buttons are
disabled. Press and hold Play/Pause (’) for about three seconds, until the status light
blinks green.

I cant even really turn it on!

   alright i think i have your solution, mine was doing the same thing! i went to my set up disk that came with my player and it suggested to reformate with either FAT or FAT32, let me walk you through this 1) plug it in (note it might continue to blink but when the file comes up delete the information that is there as fast as you can, whatever music files are there just get rid of them) 
     2) once it stops blinking; wich it will.  go to my computer find out wich drive it is on, right click, go down to format and format it as a FAR or a FAT32
    it worked for me, i hope it works for you
