Mine was doing this. It may have been because I pulled it out of my computer USB port without safely ejecting procedure. BUT it also could have been because I accidently hit the HOLD button. Who uses a hold button? I think it is a design error. Hold the thing under a light and you will see that one slider says hold. Shift it down and you will be "un-held" Duh. Wish I had known this yesterday when I was doing my 4 mile run in a musicless vacuum of just listening to my lungs panting and sneakers slapping the concrete.

My Coby MP828-8G MP3 player is stuck on a blue screen sensitivity test that reads "Touch the Center of the target and hold for one second.Repeat as the target moves." I've already tried...

I cannot go back to calibrate. Even after using reset button on back of player it turns off the player but then when you turn it back on it goes right back to the blue screen again. Cannot get out of blue screen.

Screen is stuck on hold.

Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the Samsung’s website( Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings.

How can i turn on my zen

The reset button cap on the lower left side of the unit may be jammed, causing the reset switch it activates to be come stuck.

This will put the unit into a loop in which it continually restarts.

You'll never see any sign of life if this occurs.

Be sure you see the "RESET" stencil or that may not be the reset button.

I've seen people poke paper clips their devices' microphone or speaker openings!

Be very careful when pushing the reset so that the button cap goes straight down.

If yours is stuck, unstick it, then it should come on if the battery is charged.

Then be sure to give it a FULL charge before using it, because while the button was stuck, power was being consumed.

Be sure to remove the rubber boot / skin before trying to reset the unit.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Triple Reset for Philips’ GoGear:

Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns off. Hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.

After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.
