Re: wont turn on

Get this. The instruction manual, at least the one that came with my MP3 player, has INCORRECT instructions for how to charge it. It says you just plug it in, but you actually have to plug it in and double-click the power button. Don't click and hold, and you DO have to press it twice, quickly. You'll see the charge bar start to fill.
You may also want to try resetting it, use a paper clip and poke it into the little tiny hole on the top next to the headphone plug in. That should reset it and be good to go. If that doesn't work, try reformatting.

Re: wont turn on

I had the same trouble. Your MMP8565 is not actually being charged by your USB connection from your computer. Mine worked for a couple of days and then went dead. However - I also have a Motorola PDA (cell phone) and the wall-wart charger for that plugs right in to my MMP (same mini-USB plug) and charges it up fine. I just use my phone charger for the MMP8565.

Re: wont turn on

Can anyone help??? I bought a MMP8561 for my daughter for Christmas and we have lost the installation software CD, is it possible to get a copy from someone who has this same MP3 player.

When i shut down the com. my zen wont start up anymore

When you let the battery totally run down on these, it has to sit and charge, looking quite dead, for a little while before it has enough of a charge to boot-up again.

Touch screen mp4 player wont turn on.

How about when it's connected to the computer or mains? If it powers when it is but not once you disconnect, then the battery is dead and needs replacing. This is soldered onto the main board so needs to be done by a competent person but is fairly inexpensive.

If it doesn't power up when you connect to a PC or mains then it is a connection problem (check the cable, iPod and USB sockets) or a logic board problem.

I hope it is something simple for you. Otherwise I would find an iPod repair specialist near you (I'm too far away).

All the best

MP3 player

I think it over charged. I left it on all day. When I returned home it was turned off. Before when I tried to turn it off it wouldn't. I turned it back on and it was fine, but the battery was very low. I charged it for a smaller amount of time. It is now fine and working like normal!

Thank you,

On the very bottom of your Walkman, next to where you'd normally put the USB cable on the left side (when the screen is facing you) is a reset button. Hit it with a pin, that should do it :)

Mp3 playr yp-k3 wont turn on after being charged, we only brought it a week ago and has never worked. Weve tryed resettin the player but still wont turn on.

take it back. it is not worth the trouble if you've only bought it for a week.
if it is a lion battery like the creative mp3s, then charge it for at least a day to begin with.

It won't turn on

Don't flip the switch to on. Just leave it in the down position and hold the middle button and it will turn on.

Mp3 player wont play songs or anything

Only 2 suggestions here: 1) Make sure your HOLD switch is not enabled. 2) Try to update the firmware If neither of these work, time to send the unit back to Sandisk
