Re: 8gb mp3/mp4 player
If your iPod is frozen or won't turn on, your iPod may be paused or on "hold."
Slide the Hold switch and check the screen.
If your iPod is frozen or won't turn on, connect your iPod to your computer, then press and hold the "Menu" and "Select" buttons simultaneously for 10 seconds to reset the iPod. Resetting an iPod will not affect your files or preferences.
If your iPod fails to hold a charge and it's more than a year old, you may need a new battery.
If all else fails, file a complaint with ebay stating you were sold something that was not properly described - unless the seller made it clear there were issues with the unit.
- If you need clarification, ask it in the comment box above.

Well there may be a setting on the MP3/4 player that you can change the delay on the screen backlight staying lit for. Rummage around the settings for such a thing. If you can't find anything, some more information on what type of MP3/MP4 player it is would be helpful.
About your recent purchase of 16GB 4th Gen Slim MP3 MP4 Media Player with FM radio
You have been sold a fake sized player. it is hacked to show 16GB actual size may be around 1GB to 8GB. test your player with "H2TESTW 1.4" you will find it the first hit on www.google.com let other people know and open a dispute on paypal, you have been sold a fake item. Do not return the item for refund as sellers address is very likely wrong, useless to wait for a replacement player because they all are hacked. Get a partial refund. I paid 35usd, got 20usd refunded just now.
About your problem. The player doesn't require anything works with vista and xp /etc just by plugging it into your computer and then turn it on, it will show up on your my computer as a removeable disk.

Get a partial refund if still possible and leave negative feedback.
about the other problem your having, I don't know about that. I'll let you know if mine breaks up. its a 16GB version that actually has only 4GB. got 20usd refunded from the original 35usd, so not a big problem.
still I think its a crime yes? to sell counterfeit products / manipulated to show incorrect size of memory etc.
all you need to do is push and hold the ^ (up) key on the front and the Volume + key on the side for a few seconds. This will force the hddto reset and turn off. Now you can turn it back on and continue using it. Please note this doesn’t erase the data or music off the MP3 player.
My Mp4 player will not start. When I turn it on an hour glass just pops up. I loaded music on to it no problem and it worked fine. Turned it off one day and the next day nothing but an hour glass...computer won't even receognize the player...Gereric MP4 player bought off ebay and made in China...Any ideas how I can reset the player??
