My toshiba MES60VK wont turn ON

The gigabeat was playing normally then suddenly turned off and stopped working. Ive tried to turn it back on but nothing happens. I've flipped the battery switch but there is no response. When i plug it in with the AC adapter nothing happens just a blank screen same for USB plugged in. It seems like it is permanently turned off and wont turn back on. Any solutions to this problem. What should i do?

I have a mes 60 gb Gigabeat and I've had the same problem. There is a very small slide switch on the bottom if the gigabeat. Use a pen or the end of a paper clip to slide it to the left (off) wait a few seconds and slide it back to the right (on). It should allow you to turn it back on with the power button. You may have to repeat the procedure leaving it off a little longer each time.

I am having the exact same problem with my Mp3 player. I have the same model as u. i believe it is the model and there is no wa of fixing it. Your best bet would be exchanging it for a new one or buying a totally different Mp3.

MES60VK Gigabeat - Dead


There is a switch on the bottom left side of the dock connector of the player. Flick the switch to the right and it should work. The switch is the battery cutoff switch. It is there so it will charge only. I have no idea why Toshiba though this was a good idea, but they put it there.

USB Connection Problem


I have the same problem. If you have a large library try letting it stay hooked up for a long time. It seems like it is taking inventory of device then it should work after a while. Sometimes this works. Sometimes I have to unplug then try again in a few minutes.

Battery is dead


Identical problem - working only with power cord.
Wont power on battery or usb cable.

I actually opened player and check every single option.
(I am experienced electronic - tech.)
Result: battery is fully charged (768 mA/ 3.97V on bench)
Battery switch on bottom fully functional. (switching on/off 3.97V
comming from battery)
USB supply 5.0 V in perfect order.
Conclusion:
There is no "EASY" fix for this problem.
It is either problem with firmware (low possibility)
or semiconductor on logic board (practically not fixable on DIY basis)

I bought my Gigabeat 60Gb for $ 70.00 used on Ebay so
I will live with this problem.

Doesn't work without cord! Battery switch is not responding at all.


There's a "hidden" switch on the lower part that makes it not use the battery. You can switch it with a pencil or pen.

Toshiba gigabeat MES60VK (60 GB) stopped working


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.
