Re: it wont do it

If your mp3 player came with a cd be sure you installed whatever was on it onto your computer it may have had drivers for your mp3 player to run properly. Read the instructions you got with to see if you can figure anything out. Make sure you have the latest update of windows media player. If this doesnt work check to make sure that the battery is charged or if you look in the manual that came with it see if you can find a support number.

make sure its charge for at least 3-4 hours, if that doesnt work, or it doesnt hold a charge, battery is bad, which means defective unit.

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.

Your batteries may be dead, the coil that it (the battery) attaches to sometimes gets bent out of the way, so try turning that back.

I had this problem, too. To fix it, I deleted all the files and folders, then loaded one small mp3 file, and that got it back to normal.
