Re: craig mp3 player

I found if I turned the unit on and let the battery drain completely, then plug it into the the computer and let it recharge for 12 hours, the player works fine.

It is apparently a charging issue...

Hope this helps.

Re: craig mp3 player

Hi there,

I bought- like the rest of you an mp3/mp4 player”no name” at a reasonable prise which was 390, - Danish crones which approx equals 33 UK. £. The player is equipped with 8 GB of solid state flash disk.

At the beginning at delivery it contained a video with UK. Football stating that they believed to win the upcoming world cup In football (soccer) and this song I at thee beginning found quiet funny – I don´t want a hear it ever more.

After having added several videofilms and approx 100 mp3 music favourite hits I was looking forward to take it to Greece on the upcoming vacation.

At the first glance all looked well – but as soon as I was going to go to select another directory (map) the fuc…. Time glass came on. The player restarted and my confusion began to rise would this glamorous player go to work or what?

Several hours later I realised I had to reformat it.
So I did so.
The power went down in the middle and my confusion began ton rice.
Again I found out (not stated in the short manual that I received along with it) that the computer input power via the sub wasn’t enough for the whole process.

So I powered it with the live mains adaptor fort 2 hours and..

After several attempt I succeeded and started again – my conclusion to make this story short –
Add only the music you want hears and that goes for the video as well!
If ever the time glass should appear try to select another function switch it of by pressing the off button don’t use the switch it your mp4 player has one.
Then try select some games and finally select the area function that caused the player tor restart or show the time glass if it should happen maybe you have to reformat the player (mother fu….) and at a several times to make it work - mine is finally working at the time writing this.

Have a nice summer
Looking forward to see video photos hear music reed text as my upcoming summer in Greece is

Best regards

My mp4 player (craig model#CMP616F)will only flash an hour glass, what do i do?

Mine did the same thing. I talked with a guy at the company and he told me it was frozen. What you need to do is let it run till the entire battery is dead. Than recharge it completely. For 4 hours at least. That should reset it. Now my player works fine.
Good luck.

I have a craig mp4 player model CMP616F and i just bought it, charged it, loaded songs and used it 1 time. now when i turn it on a hour glass comes on the screen and blinks and cant do anything else

i had the same problem with mine searched online and found that someone said to let the battery run completely dead, (turn it on and leave it on til the screen stops blinking) that resets it, and then you charge it for 4 (i think) hours. Worked for mine and I hope it works for you too

Craig mp4 players

try hookin up to the computer USB Port, and see if there is a charging Icon On The MP4 Player. leave it hooked up to the computer for 2-3 hours, then try it.
if non of this works, the internal batterys dead.
you can get replacements for these if you need 1.
theres a lot of chinese companys, that supply replacement batterys as spares.

My craig 256mb mp3 player wont work.

Quite frankly, my Craig MP4 is new and broken. It is a piece of garbage...Just get rid of it, don't put any more money into it. I just bought a used Creative Zen for $65 on Amazon....It is 500% bertter and there is no disappointment.
