Looks on but nothing happens

Hi I connected my MP3 To my pc to charge and slowly the light started going off,and now it looks like it's stuck, as if it's lite but nothing happens. I can see it's on only if I look at it from the side. Any suggestions as what to do or what happened here? Never happened before

    Hi thanks for your suggestion. I tried holding and playing with buttons but nothing. Eventually the battery died and it turned off.

    Then I tried to start charging and got heated and it eventually turned itself off. Was ready to go back to the shopI bought it from and see what's the matter. Then I decided to plug it in agian this morning and so far it's charging and is also working properly. Have no idea what was all this about.

    Hope this doesn't happen again.
    Thanks again for trying

    I'm glad that my problem and posting helped someone.

    In my case nothing helped, even holding the button for the 20 secs.

    Anyway, hopefully won't have more problems.

I've put mp3 files on, but nothing's playing

Simply the player is dead! If you connected player to the pc with no problem it means NO ERROR messages and the driver for the player is ok, you have copied all the mp3 files in ONE directory to the player and nothing happened there are only two possibilities either the PLAY button is stucked or the mp3 player is dead!

I charged a small sony pocket e reader, and tried to turn it on, it was slow, not really knowing what was going on I kept trying. teh light going from green to red, to amber to now nothing and I can't...

Hi nellvandenel,

Looks like the reader is missing charge. You can try these steps:

1. Connect the reader to the computer
2. While Reader is connected, hit the "Reset" button at the bottom of the reader
3. Check if a red steady light comes on, if not, try the reset again
4. Leave the reader connected for 15-30 minutes to allow it to charge
5. Disconnect the reader and check if is operational now

Problems with my MP3 A3000 20 Gb sony


I had the exact same problem. It was just after I pretty much filled all the memory up with music too. Nothing would happen even when I connected it up to the power supply.

It's possibly because it has crashed trying to shut down or start up as I could hear internal whirring when I put it to my ear and moved it around. Try using a paperclip or thin nail in the small reset hole at the bottom of the player and that should reset whatever it is stuck doing. Mine started up again after this and all the songs were still intact.

How to charge my creative zen mp3 player

Just connect your Zen onto your PC (NOT LAP TOP) on a USB.
If does not start charging (you´ll see arrow and pause/ play buttons flashing slowly) then you need to RESET your ZEN.
How to reset: You´ll find a tiny little hole by on/off button on the side. With ZEN connected to the PC USB or onto wall charger try turning ZEN on, it doesen´t matter if it turns on or not. Then insert a sowing pin or office paper clip end in this reset hole for a few seconds and release. Give it a couple of seconds and see the lights go off onto charging mode. LEAVE IT CHARGING for 24 hours. Make sure your PC will NOT turn itself on safe mode or hibernates in this period, it has to be ON for charging, at all times.
This is it.
