    Also only can see COBY when I turn the thing on and if I hook it up to my computer it just has a hourglass where the COBY has been. My computer doesn't pick it up either! I have to take the new batt. out just to shut it off.

Coby mp815 mp3 player comes on but menu screen does not say usb device has malfunctioned

Good Day!

For the menu screen to come out, your Coby MP815 must be reset.

How to reset?

Make sure the MP3 player is not connected to your PC. Make sure it is turned on.
Straighten a paper clip. Insert the end of the paper clip to a small hole located at the bottom of your Coby player and gently press the reset button (at the image below the reset button is numbered 9). Your Coby player will restart.

Root menu zapped

To fix this problem I found a fix at the coby website. I downloaded this zip file. Unzipped it and did a drag and drop of the font file onto my coby when it was plugged into my usb port. Now I can read my menus again. Yippee!!

Ok i bought a coby mp4 player and it just wont turn on for someapperent reasonand its a mp605-4g

Sometimes the factory accidently catched the hold button , try to turn this off first and then fully charge the unit or while attached to the computer scroll throught the menu to see what your settings are. In the end you may have to return it as there may be something wrong with it. Hope this helps.

I can't play

The controls are underneath the Coby sign - check the user manual for how to work it.  There's no menu screen unfortunately if that's what you mean.

I had this problem, too. To fix it, I deleted all the files and folders, then loaded one small mp3 file, and that got it back to normal.
