Wont Play unless hooked to charger

My Philips HDD082 MP3 Player stoped in the middle of a song and would not play anynmore music. I count even turn it off, so I had to wait for the battery to die. I recharged the player, but it wont turn on unless its hooked to the charger and plugged into the outlet. As soon as I disconnect it, it tunrns off. Any idead on why this could be happending.

Player can be reset from a lock up by pressing and holding "PLAY/PAUSE" and "Vol +"

Try updating the firmware with Device Manager on the product CD.

Having problem syncrinizing music to mp3 player

if u used window media player its will mess up your mp3 by duplicating songs and not leting u play songs. What i do is connect it to the computer and it should pop up. DONT open window media player. Open the files and add your music by dragging them into your mp3 from another folder. This only works if you have a different folder of music. It should work. If all your music is in Widows media player it wont work. Also try deleting all your music from ur mp3 but copy your musice onto your computer first. Good luck i hope i helped.

This player will be ruined by using Windows Media Player 11 to transfer songs. It may work fine for a while, but eventually it will fail. You already ran the Repair and it didn't solve the issue, so if it is a Windows Media Player-related issue, that player may be toast.
Alternatively, you may be trying to load a song that had a fixed-term DRM license. The license could now be expired, requiring you to refresh the download through the music service from which it was purchased.

My ipod shuffle wont play music

It won't play music while connected to computer, that's for sure. It only plays when it's disconnected from the wall charger and computer.

The songs could be in the wrong format
AAC is iTunes native format
Mp3 generally works
WMA is iffy - only unprotected (non-DRM) files will work
Streaming songs won't work

Wont play music

The songs are in the wrong format - they are probably DRM-encrypted WMA files that you are trying to transfer, and the license on those files are wrong; they are either "fixed-term" or lack "transfer rights"

To resolve, either upgrade your music svc subscription, or convert the songs to Mps format

Songs wont change

It is stuck on "Repeat One" - refer to p.23 of your user's manual -
You can set your player to play music tracks randomly (Shuffle All ) or repeatedly (Repeat One or
Repeat All ).
1. From the main menu, select Settings > Play mode.
2. Use the VERTICAL TOUCH STRIP to scroll up or down the options.
3. Press § to select an option.
4. Press § again to deselect an option.
While you are playing music you can see the following active play mode screen.
