    I have the same problem. It has yet to be used since it only works when on the charger, and that is not all of the time. Not a very good gift for my 12 year old son for Christmas. I am very disappointed.

Plug it in to computer, then turn player on. It has to be turned on to charge for some reason.

The power switch is fragile - if you break it then you cannot turn on the player. plugging in the charger will turn it on but only while the is power coming from the charger.

Contact Coby. See what they suggest and if it can't be fixed, see if they can send you a replacement.

Maybe you should see if you need a new battery.

SOURCE: coby mp3 (2g) wont charge

That happened to me to. It means when you were charging it on your computer you just unplugged it. What you should have done is click "safly remove hardware" on the bottom right screen appearing when there is another system plugged into the computer. it wont work anymore now on that computer. next time you get a computer it will work but before unplugging it press "safly remove hardware".

The most common cause is a flat battery. There is a trick to charging the battery in these small mp3 players. It wont charge if it is turned on, and it won't charges if it's turned off. Here what to do...
1. plug the payer into your USB port. or wall charger
2. switch thje palyer on using the mechanical switch (on the side)
3. turn it off by either holding down the play button, or selecting "System" from the menu
4. The screen will go black and the battery will begin charging.

My mp3 player only works when it is pluged in to the charger.

Have you let the battery charge? You are supposed to charge it at least four hours the first time, or until it is full. You just need to leave it connected to the computer for it to charge.
