It's likely your battery is flat. These devices are designed to run only from their internal battery. If the battery is flat, it won't turn on. To charge the battery connect your charging source (USB port or wall charger). Turn the player on with the mechanical swich. Next hold down the play button for more than 4 seconds. The player will turn off and begin to charge. After about 6 hrs the battery will be full and you can use the player.
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off,
hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer
while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button
for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into
recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says
Found New Hardware Wizard.
If it fails to charge after 3-4 hrs, or fails to keep charge once unplugged, get the mp3 player replaced.
Sometimes I must hold the play button down for over 7 seconds on my unit to get it to turn on. See also the answer to the question on properly charging the unit; i.e, have the slide switch in the "off" position.
If you are using a USB hub to charge the mp3 player then the hub must be powered.
