Question about Neuros (40215 00) (256 MB) MP3 Player

Open Question

Neuros II will not charge

I replaced the battery and had a tech look at the player - he found the center post on the power receptacle (where the barrel from the wall wart plugs into the unit) loose and soldered it. He verified that the power jack was good - power is getting to the board 
but somewhere after that it's failing and not getting to the battery.

The battery is not charging

You can try and reset the player. resetting a Clip player: 1. Slide and hold the Power switch up for approximately 20 seconds. 2. Release the Power switch. 3. To turn the player on, slide the Power switch up then release instantly.
Some things to check for when your player does not act like its taking a charge.
USB Cable Make sure that the USB cable is properly plugged in and use the original cable that came with your player.
Computer in Hibernation mode Make sure the computer isn't entering hibernation or sleep mode while the device is connected. The computer must be ON in order to charge your player.
USB Port 2.0 Make sure the player is connected to a USB 2.0 port (1.1 occasionally causes charging problems).
USB Port location Try plugging into different USB ports (i.e. USB port in the back of the computer); occasionally the front USB ports have limited power to charge up the device.
Battery Make sure the battery is fully charged. It takes approximately 3 hours to fully charge the battery.
Latest firmware Depending on what Sansa player you have, make sure it's up to date with the latest firmware.
AC charger (optional) AC chargers (sold separately) have a 500-1000 milliamp max output, which provides much better charging ability than a USB port.

I have a Sansa View 8gb and the battery would die like within like 3-5 hours but when I connect it to my computer and go to properties I found that it was charged 84% what should I do about it?

What you need to do is let your player die. Then after it is dead keep turning it off and turning it on till it stops responding. This will run the player out of all battery charge. Then you will keep turning it on so that you can deplete the battery charge that your player sets up as a backup power. Then you need to plug it into your computer and let it charge all night. This will reset the player battery memory so that you can have full charge again. If this does not work your battery might be going out and you should look into either replacing it or investing into another mp3 player.

Ipod will not turn on

Did the iPod power on before the screen replacement? Most likely you do need a new battery. You can go to to view free videos on iPod repair and suggestions

Do I Have the Correct Battery?? What do the mAh numbers REALLY mean?

Yes, your playtime will be reduced using the 750mAh. It won't hurt to get a larger mAh rating as long as the voltage is the same. Of couse it needs to fit.

Will not power up

The battery is probably shot. Check voltage. if it is 0.0 then the battery has shut down internally and either needs to be charged for 48 hours, or replaced. Seems these batteries will shut themselves down to protect themselves and sometimes are never able to revive. You can try and charge it from the USB, but I dont think it does that, you need a 5.0V 2A power supply with the proper tip. I think it is a 3mm + center post. You can also remove the battery and check the pins when it is charging, It shoould show some voltage. Also, I dont think you can run it while charging.

Well, charging the battery alot may cause it to malfunction. So you have to charge your battery only when in is near zero (empty), and for no more than 8 hours depending on what device you use. Now your battery is dead, so you got to replace it. Goodluck
