SOURCE: MP3 Player won't work

I had the same problem too. What worked for me was rolling the battery while it is in the battery compartment and holding the play button at the same time.

I do not know about your warranty - call or e-mail support. If your computer no longer recognizes it it is dead - sorry.

It sounds like it's time for a new battery. Here is your battery:

If replacing the battery doesn't get this player up and running, you will need to contact Sandisk for repair or replacement of your player.

My coby mp826 mp3 wont turn on when i try to turn it on and when i plug it in to charge my cp wont decdect it and it wont charge it doesn't even turn on when i plug it in


Sorry to say it but it sounds like it is dead. You could try to leave it alone for at least a day to potentially kill off the battery in case of a firmware crash, then try charging again, or press and hold the power switch for 15-35 seconds. Other than that, I have had similar issues with rather cheaply built mp3 players, which are fragile to drops, faulty firmware, and of course, water.

I charged my 2GB SENSEI mp3 player for more than 4 hrs...but still its not working even for 10 to 15 mins......so wat is d time required for full charging....


Depending on the age of the mp3 player, the battery may be shot and you may need a new one. mp3 players tend to get heavy usage and the batteries can die and get burnt out quickly especially if they are not charged properly. Try draining the battery until it can no longer turn on. Then charge your battery for 6 hours. Good luck.

I cant put music in my zen mp3


Does it turn on at all? If it doesn't than the battery needs replacing. If it does turn on and it just doesn't play, than it either has a virus or there is an error in firmware and will have to be replaced or sent in for firmware upgrade.

My gpx mp3 works fine and turns on when it is plugged into my pc, but when I take it out (even fully charged) I cant get it to turn on anymore.......... any suggestions??


I think maybe your battery is relying on the USB connection for most of its power while connected to
your PC, but doesn't really hold a charge, and needs to be replaced.
