HI. This unit has internal memory(1gb) that can become unstable, thus, causing start up issues. With that said; This will most likely be a dead cell(battery). I would replace the battery with a new one if it is over 1 years old. This lithium cell may be defective. Once you have purchased a new battery, be sure to charge it fully before using the player. It takes three whole hours to set a newly purchased lithium cell. Once that is done, power up the player and update your firmware. Use the steps below to update properly:

1. Download the updated firmware at www.memorexelectronics.com.

2. Unzip the file, then double click setup.exe in the Desktop folder to install the software to your computer.

3. Connect the player to the computer using the supplied USB cable and the installation screen will appear. (If the installation screen does not appear, unplug the USB cable and turn off the unit). Connect to the computer again and press and hold the Power On/Off/Stop button until the installation screen appears.

4. Follow the on-screen instructions to install the driver.

5. When finished, click START and locate the newly installed software “Deco” andselect “Firmware Download”.

Now, after the update, you will need to reformat the player. Use the steps below to achieve this:

1. Use the USB cable to connect the player and the computer.

2. Double click on My Computer, then right click "MPT Player", "MMP8565"or "Removable Disk" and left click on"Format".

3a. For "MPT Player" or "MMP8565", at the "Format" window, click OK to confirm and the player will start to format . When
finished, click "OK" to close the Format window.

3b. For "Removable Disk", at the "Format" window, select "FAT 32" from the file system pull-down menu, then click "Start" to format the unit

  • NOTE: Make sure you have selected "FAT 32" at the file system pull down menu; otherwise, after formatting, the player will not work properly.Then, click OK to confirm and the player will start to format. When finished, click "Close" to close the Format window.

  • NOTE; If for some reason you cannot update your firmware, you will need to reformat the player first, then, update the firmware after the reformatting process.

    HI again; if the unit continues to no power up even after replacing the battery, that will indicate that the internal hardware is damaged. A new unit will be more cost affective. Replacing the micro hardware will be more expensive than a new unit.

Memorex=3M. Like the video tapes, it's guaranteed for life. There's probably nothing you can do yourself if it uses MTP as opposed to UMS, otherwise you could just format it on your PC and start over.

Charging the battery by the computer


Reformat the player - the instructions are in your user's manual, which can also be obtained off the internet at: http://www.memorexelectronics.com/html/product_detail.php?PID=650#

If that fails, get the firmware upgrade from the above-mentioned website

Boot Error, Shutting Down


Go download the firmware from the memorex site. Hole the power and left buttons as you plug it into your computer. It'll be detected as a recoveryclass device, the firmware program should be able to reflash the device and fix it. If not, hold the power and left the entire time that the firmware detector scans, then let it flash the device (including formatting the data area) and you should be good to go.
