Question about Philips SA3125\02 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Battery not charging

The battery starts to charge then the 3 lights on the display flash and the battery shows full. The reality- when unplugged from the USB is that its empty. Tried resetting. Tried different USB ports and different PCs- to no avail.

If you know a solution please let me know.

My main PC is an AMD K6-2 450 with 256mb ram, Win XP home edition.

Change battery sansa ciip

If the MP3 player battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Under a full charge the mp3 shows only 1/2 charge3d

I have over 10 years experience in electronic tech support.

How long is the charge lasting? If you're only getting half of the battery life you use to get, then the unit needs to be repaired. I can do more research into your model, but normally there isn't a way to change the battery charge display. Please let me know if you're still getting full battery life even though the display is only showing half.

I'll use the information you provide to assist you further. I look forward to hearing from you.

Battery on Sony Walkman NWZ-E436F

ok, just tried something with maybe a solution....

I was connected via an usb hub to my laptop, then it said battery is full, it apparently didn't charge.

When i connect my usb cable directly to my laptop it started to charge again!!.

My usb hub is not connected to a adapter so all power comes from the USB port, this may be not strong enough to charge your walkman.

Try this (so directly connect to your desk / laptop) it may work!

Coby MP-C7095 Won't turn on

On my Colby player there is a small reset hole in the back. Mine has sometimes just stopped playing and shuts off. If you use a small wire (paperclip works well) push it in and reset it.
