How do i reset my mp3 player its just frozen?

How Do I Fix My Sony MP3 Player That Froze & Won't Turn On?

Sony Walkman MP3 players, like most MP3 players, can occasionally freeze up and stop working properly. Fortunately, there are two simple ways of resetting the Walkman system. The first method takes only 10 to 15 seconds to complete and is an effective way to troubleshoot most technical problems you may have with your Walkman. The second method, unfortunately, may take several hours; it requires you to allow the battery to drain completely. Whatever the problem is that's causing your MP3 player to freeze, one or both of these methods should clear it up.


Things You'll Need:

* Paperclip
* Walkman MP3 player charger

Reset Button

Straighten the paperclip and set it aside for now.
Locate the reset button on your Sony MP3 player. On most models, it can be found near the volume control mechanism.
Insert the end of the paperclip into the reset button and hold it down for three to five seconds. When the screen flickers, you'll know that the MP3 player's system has been reset.
Remove the paperclip and wait for the system to reboot.

Battery Drain

Turn on your MP3 player.
Let the battery's life deplete. Since the system is frozen and no music is being played, this will take longer than usual.
Check that the battery is completely depleted. Sometimes the screen just goes dark during this process, but the battery is not actually drained. You can check this by pushing buttons or trying to power up the system.
Connect your MP3 player to its charger and plug it in to a power source. Allow the MP3 player to fully recharge.

Power on the MP3 player. The system should be operating normally again.

My zen V plus is stuck in recovery mode. i cannot select an option or shut it off. how do i reset it?

try this: Find the reset hole on the side of the player just below the power/hold switch. Please do not mistake it for the microphone hole at the top. Then push a paper clip or something similar in the hole, and the player should automatically shut off. If your player does not shut off, you will have to wait for the battery to run out and die, but usually the reset hole works.

Hold the power button and the menu button simultanously for about 20 seconds. Wait at least another 10 seconds, and then turn it on again.

My friends iPod is freezing only when he scrolls through files too quickly...What should I do?

This isn't really a fix, but this is better than waiting for the battery to die. Try toggling the hold switch off and then back on and then press and hold the center button and the menu button simultaneously for about 6-10 seconds. This should reboot the ipod without having to wait for the battery to die.
