Re: will not power up
The battery is probably shot. Check voltage. if it is 0.0 then the battery has shut down internally and either needs to be charged for 48 hours, or replaced. Seems these batteries will shut themselves down to protect themselves and sometimes are never able to revive. You can try and charge it from the USB, but I dont think it does that, you need a 5.0V 2A power supply with the proper tip. I think it is a 3mm + center post. You can also remove the battery and check the pins when it is charging, It shoould show some voltage. Also, I dont think you can run it while charging.

check that you are trying to charge the right batteries for the charger. Alkaline batteries will not charge and nic hydroxide need a special charger. Every possibility you got alkaline batteries to start with. make sure your batteries are rechargeable.

MP3 players come with USB cables to charge the battery while the computer.
However, wall chargers for these items are missing, damaged or undelivered. If
so, you can use a USB wall charger, USB cables, adapters and because all have

<p>3. Connect the charger to the USB cable. Then connect it to

<p>iPod Battery <br />

two ends before inserting it into the iPod. If you do not, you can damage the

contact apple and see what they say. if they cant fix it or something, then look for instructions on how to change the battery. if you dont wanna do that, then get a new one, but recycle that one first so you can get some money to pay for the second one
Hi have you got your power supply plugged into the charging platform??, It would appear you have insufficient charge in the batteries on the 605.
If you have the USB lead plugged into the charging cradle this would normally ask you to select either charge or usb.
What does the CHG. light on top of the 605 do when you plug the unit into the cradle ?? (steady green-- charging. flashing green-- fully charged)
It's probably too late for your nees but for future users, push a pin into the rest hole on the bottom of the player while AT THE SAME TIME holding down the play and power buttons. Yes, I know you need three hands to do this. That should bring up a recovery screen Try "Clean-up" on that screen.
