Toshiba Gigabeat MES30V won't charge

Toshiba Gigabeat MES30V will not charge. When the power button is pressed, the screen flashes white and an empty battery symbol shows briefly in the bottom right corner. I have let it charge overnight more than once, and I have turned the battery off for a while and then turned it back on.

There is a little battery cut of switch at the bottom of the device. You can unbend a paper clip and switch it off. Then switch it back on after a few seconds. Plug it back into the usb cable to charge it. It should work ok now.

Help! 30 GB Gigabeat won't hold a charge and seems to be wiped :(


Sounds like a built in glitch ... You might want to take it back under manufacturer's warranty and get a completely different MP3 Player/iPod, because it sounds like a scamming item - for $400 I'd demand answers.

It may sound a bit cheeky, but I find reputable models, like Goodmans, JVC and Sony work without a problem, and buying cheaper models with mass GB space would seem a bit too good to be true.

Gigabeat Will Not Turn On - Battery Flashes Then Goes Dead


have you only been charging it with the usb cable?
try plugging it into a ac adaptor, (make sure the button is in the off position at the bottom)
and it should hopefully restart, then turn it to the on when it's loaded, and leave it plugged in till it's completely charged

that might work

Gigabeat has froze completely


Turn off the battery with a toothpick or pencil then turn it back on. You can do this on the bottom side.

Problem with TOSHIBA gigabeat model MEGX30


When you attempt to charge the player does they screen display the image of the charging plug? If not the battery may have died, in which case it needs to be replaced.
