Re: my philips mp3

Cable or connector faulty? Or your current usb port cannot supply the current needed to charge the player. You could try a externally powered usb hub to see if it will charge. Or borrow a car usb charging adapter with cable and plug that in the player to see if it will charge. It might even be a dead player/battery.

Wont charge

Have you tried to reset? The reset button is right by the lock switch. It's small so use a pin or something small like that.

Could be corrupt firmware:

Press and hold [PLAY/PAUSE] on the player whilst connecting to the PC.

Follow the on-screen prompts.

This will format the player and replace the firmware.

This model doesn't charge through the USB port. It needs charging with the external power supply.

Not working.

I have no charge in my philips hdd82 player. Usually I just plug it into my computer via usb and a screen shows up on the player showing its connected and it charges. Usually it comes up as an MTP device on the computer so I can add mp3s as well. Now for no reason at all, when I plug it in, it doesn't charge and the computer doesn't recognize it. The screen shows an outlet when I plug it in so I know the cord works. It just won't let me do anything. When I press the on button with the cord unplugged, I can't do anything either b/c no charge. HELP. plz.
