Re: Battery for GoGear HDD065/05

Hi, you can get a battery on ebay, there is another solution if you know someone with the same player. The player will not charge or start up if the battery gets too low. Borrow a friends player HDD 065 / 075. Remove their fully charged battery (make sure their player is off) and place it in your player. Switch on the player (should work now) and plug in the mains charger. Without turning the player off or unplugging the mains charger remove your friends battery and replace yours. Leave the player to charge the battery until full. This should solve your problem provided your battery is flat and not damaged. Do not place the flat battery in your friends player as this can cause problems if they have upgraded firmware.

It would probably be cheaper to buy a new one from ebay

Should I let the battery on my SanDisk Clip MP3 player run out completely before recharging for longer battery life? I've heard different answers. Some say it doesn't make a difference; others say...

It does not make any difference with these lithium batteries.
In the older Nickle cadium batteries, it does. It gets a memory effect, if you charge them from a half charges state.

No power on ipod nano a 1320 and it dosnt want to charge

This is what happens after a prolonged or extended use of any electronic device.
It is a very normal thing for your device to lose charge and require charging. After continuous activities like this, the battery eventually overcomes it life-span. In other words, the device's battery have become so low that it may have to be replaced if the device is not in anyway damaged.
Also, if you leave your device without usage for a very long time, the battery is prone to go dead automatically and if it not charged within a short period to time, this could permanently damage the battery.
All you have to do is to change the battery and if it still doesn't work, it is then advised you see a technician as the device could be experiencing any other form of error or damage.

Try resetting the device it?s usually a small pinhole on the back or side of the device try holding that in for about 10 seconds IF THIS DOES NOT WORK TRY THIS: Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the Coby's website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings.

When I changed computers I forgot to back up my iTunes library. Then my old iPod died and it seems I have no way of accessing the songs on my old library OR my old iPod. It is probably that my battery...

If you have your new computer with itunes you should be able to charge your ipod on the new computer. Once it is charged you should be able to backup your ipod using itunes and retreive your music.
In general ipods are what we call FLASH devices.  Which means that just removing the power source (in this case the internal battery) would not wipe the memory.  It has to be purposely erased. However, I would not advise removing the battery as this would most likely result in damage to the unit.

Coby MP-C582 Will not turn on

These players are notorious for battery problems. Charge it all night and you just might get 30 minutes of use out of it before the battery dies. Make sure the slider switch next to the power button on top isn't in the "lock" position as the unit will not power up if it is. I recommend getting a 12 volt car charging plug for it and getting real aquainted with the tiny reset button on the battery side of it. You can get a plug for about $6 that will charge it through the usb cable that came with the player.

Creative Zen M won't turn back on

There is a major bug in Firmware version 1.40.xx related to battery charging, and it will exhibit this behavior if there is not enough battery power available for your device to power up. You will need to upgrade your firmware to fix this.

There is a catch, however - your player will not power up on USB power alone, which poses a problem for firmware updating. You must obtain a DC wall charger, plug it into the player via the dongle. This will allow the device to turn on. Then you must plug into your computer's USB port. Do not worry - having both a wall charger and USB cable plugged in at the same time will not harm your player or your computer. This will allow your ZVM to remain powered up so you can update the firmwar
