Unable to charge battery on Audiophase MP3, model KZ111

I plug the MP3 player into the computer via the USB port. The MP3 player initially shows full yellow in the charging status icon, but it only indicates charging for a minute or so and then indicates a full charge (white). Even though I leave it plugged into the computer (with the computer on) for hours, it dies on me when I use it. This was a Christmas (2007) gift and has not charged properly since new.

Unable to charge unit (brand new)


Hello,

Are you on a laptop? Only possible issue is that with laptops, most have a feature which disables the power on the USB ports if not used frequently..besides that, if you plug the unit into the USB port, it should charge, if not, you have a faulty battery.

Coby accepts gifts for warranty, they just need a letter head showing you received it as a gift and they will replace the unit, see below for requirements:

What you need to send:

$6 Money Order -Made out to 'Coby Electronics' 'return shipping fee'
Letterhead showing you received unit as a gift
Note with your name, address, phone#, description of issue
Unit with all the accessories

Send to:
Coby Electronics

Charging


If it just has a usb cable for charging then yes you would. The charging time varies but it generally shouldn't take longer than 3 hours to fully charge. Check your manual if you have one, it will give you more information.

Audiophase MP3 player


I had the same problem, so I got fed up and threw it against the wall...... Just kidding. I have a Motorola phone that uses a mini-USB plug-in charger. So I connected it to the mp3 player and plugged it in, looking for smoke. And Wala! it started to charge. The mp3 player has to be on. When you see a battery icon and it simulating being filled up, then you know that it is charging. Once it stops filling up, it's done. Good luck!

Also, if you use the USB cable in you computer, make sure that the mp3 player is on. I had absolutely no luck on charging this way, but maybe you can.

Mp3 Player Won't Charge


wiggle your usb cord - I had to wiggle mine a bit where it plugs into the usb port in the computer before it was recognized and listed as a device in 'my computer'. only then did it actually start charging; if your computer is not recognizing it is plugged in, it may not charge.. when i finally figured this out, the actual charging of my 4 gig audiophase mps only took 10 minutes- previously i was trying to charge it for hours without any luck.

Ilo mp3 player won't turn on


Ok, SOME MP3/4 Players indeed charge from the USB port, albeit slowly... usually tho there comes a charger that plugs into the "Mains" and then plugs into the USB socket on the Player.. Sometimes if the Battery goes really "Flat" the USB port is unable to supplu enough "Current" sucessfully charge it up. (Hence the need for wall charger) IF it was entirely Via USB it would take many hours, I would at least think overnite. Hope that hepls.
