This MP3 belongs to a friend who asked me to put music on it. I was able to do so, but now when I try to turn it on the screen says HOLD, the BYE and then shuts off. How do I get it to stay on?

It must have a problem either from the switch or the power source which is the battery. it must be a power shortage. try to charge it around 10-30 minutes and see if your mp3 will work.

My zipy coyote mp4 wont play the musics!

You probably have the Hold on! (: It's the button on the side of the mp4 that says HOLD. If it's down, it's locked. Try pushing it up and turning on your mp4. If the lock still appears, try switching the button again down and up, that happens sometimes with my zipy too. Hope I helped in some way!

My RCA TH1161-A mp3 player wont work at all

Ensure the key lock is not activated by sliding
"Power on/off ( )/Hold" towards the center
position. If your player isn’t already on, turn it on by
sliding "Power on/off ( )/Hold" to the left
and holding until the player turns on.

Slick mp3 player

When you try to play it the screen should say locked. Push the bottom button that says hold and the screen should say unlocked. Hope that helps. I just bought the same MP3 player and am liking it so far.

It won't turn on

Don't flip the switch to on. Just leave it in the down position and hold the middle button and it will turn on.

Freezing at "refresh database!

I had the same problem once with my NEW one as well. You have to reinstall the firmware then erase all your music if you can't find any corrupt files on it. to get the new firmware, you must dowload it from somewhere (can't remember exactly) and then start your mp3 in recovery mode (turn "hold" on and hold "record button" until recovery mode shows up and asks you to put files on 16 meg removable disk.) the firmware to be exact. once you have the firmware files, put them on that 16 meg removable disc then disconnect mp3 and it will reset. it shouldn't want to refresh database. at that point you should delete all your music and start from scratch. I know it sucks!:(
