Re: mp4

The same thing happens to mine! it sucks
until, i phoned up samsung..they said put it in the freezer. i know it sounds silly but by putting it in the freezer the cold air allows the electrical particles to become free due to the negative charge present. (i researched a lot) do it for 24 hours-25hours no more than the reset button afterwards! mine totally worked normally again.

According to an earlier fixya post by spoil5, it's a common problem with Transcend mp3 players usually because of a defective battery and/or the operating firmware.
Transcend MP 860 Review

His tips:
  • Keep the battery charged, don't let it go flat
  • Try the trick with the volume control
  • Replace the battery

Here's his temporary fix to make charging work:
  • Turn on player.
  • In main menu press and hold the rocker button in up position.
  • You should see volume adjustment indicator.
  • While volume indicator is increasing, plug USB cable connected to turned on power supply.

Important: the volume must keep changing at the moment of plugging the cable (cannot be stopped at max position). If necessary set volume to 0 first and then start from 2.

The mp4 player will be fully charged and when i take it off the charger and i want to listen to it. It will pause and freeze then will turn off right away. I will try to turn it back on and it wont turn...

i think in 3 possible solutions: 1- try to charge it with another charger 2- connect your mp4 to a computer and run a virus scan, after this try it. if don't, format your mp4 and try to charge it again. 3- the charge system of your mp4 is damaged, so take it to the technical support for to repair it.

I have a rca M4304 mp4 and it will not turn on unless i plug it to the charder and when i unplug it it truns right back off

Ifthe MP3 player battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.

Craig mp4 players

try hookin up to the computer USB Port, and see if there is a charging Icon On The MP4 Player. leave it hooked up to the computer for 2-3 hours, then try it.
if non of this works, the internal batterys dead.
you can get replacements for these if you need 1.
theres a lot of chinese companys, that supply replacement batterys as spares.
