Same problem I plugged mine in overnight into the USB. Stated it was charging and then nothing. Can't seem to solve this and it has been over 4 months. Still won't work. THere is a battery inside and I need to check that. May have gone bad. YOu might try that.

    I wish that is what it was but I am very careful with it. It worked fine until about 4 months ago.

  • kelly593 Jul 24, 2009

    It won't even stay on with the USB cord plugged in

  • kelly593 Jul 24, 2009

    the computer won't recognize it when I plug it in. THe device says charging and then it turns off

  • kelly593 Jul 24, 2009

    yep, looked at the K3 manual and everything. Samsung Media Studio will not recognize it when plugged in either

Well if you dropped your mp3 in the water or simply droped it that could have mangle the inside mother board or your chips so all that is going threw it is the information that is directly linked to it it will not be able to function on its own that is why you needed the third party the computer to make it light up. take it to a specialist so he can open it up and fix what is wrong with it

good luck

Charging battery

Sometimes if charged too long or your not around when the light does go off, after awhile the battery looses its charge. when that happens the charger will start to charge again and it will seem that it isn't working right or charging. in your instruction booklet it should tell you how long it should take to charge. some say 45 min some say hours. set a timer once you find the time recommended for your device, once it goes off unplug if light is off. good luck

Why do you send usb connection to charge jwin jb-th130, why not receptical plug. do i plug into computer and how long to charge?

The standard connection is a USB plug (mini or micro USB style). You can plug it into your computer or any wall plug that has a USB connector on it (the bigger rectangle shaped plug like your computer has). The USB standard is 5 volts so if it comes from your computer or a wall adapter or your car charger - as long as it is a USB connector and likely says 5 volts, they will all work the same way.

Every headset I have worked with seems to charge about 50 to 75% in 2 hours (it is ok to do a quick, partial charge). Leave it plugged in overnight for full charge (8 to 12 hours).

Flashing orange triangle on usb when charging. No charging taking place New battery inserted and used successfully When battery flat, problem repeated itself. Don`t know if problem is the plug charger,...

Mine did this too. It's a warning to say that your battery is faulty and needs replacing , I replaced mine and It now works fine , charges fine and operates ok. You just need to replace the SLB-10A for another battery of this kind and It should be okay. Charge it overnight and in the morning iot might be ok , if not then you have another malfuntion , so take it to the camera shop for them to check or send away to samsung for repairs.

Sansa clip sandisk 2gb won't charge. Thought it was low and after plugging it in to computer overnight it wasn't fully charged but worked the next morning but suddenly died. Now it won't charge. Sansa...

I had the same problem this morning, albeit with my 8G Clip. Nothing worked -- the thing seemed dead as roadkill -- until I found a link about "forcing MSC mode." Basically, it told me to hold down the center button while plugging my Clip into my computer using my USB cable. Suddenly, boom! It's awake and alive and happy again. I'm unsure how that works, but that did it for me.

Using USB in car as external power

the unit uses power EQUAL to what it is being charged with, when plugged into the USB.
you need to leave it on the DC (cigarette lighter) charger overnight to charge it fully, or use an AC plug for the Motorola Razor (min-USB) to charge it in the house

Charging time

I called Garmin re this question. They said about 4 hrs in the car, about 6-8 on the computer. I left mine plugged to the USB port overnight and have a full charge. BTW Radioshack sells an AC adapter for about 30 bucks. If if also works for the latest iPod I think I will go with it. 4hrs.. says Garmin

Zen Touch

Plug the Zen into a self powered USB hub that is not connected to a PC and leave overnight. You may also use other devices such as a printer USB port etc.

It recharges very slowly over USB but it will recharge.
