It won't turn on

Hello all. Has anyone else had the same problem, my mp3 dropped out of my hand a week ago, and wont turn on since. The only way it turns on is when I have it plugged in to charge and to put music from my laptop onto it. Anyone have any ideas or is it a dead duck?

Thanks a mill!

Could be corrupt firmware.

Install and run the Philips Device Manager form the product CD.

Press and hold the [PLAY/PAUSE] button on the player whilst connecting to the PC.

Continue to hold until Device Manager say to release, then follow the on-screen prompts.

This will format the player, deleting all tracks, and re-load the firmware.

When the process has finished, switch on the player, and it should go through the initialisation process, then switch off.

Switch on again, and the player should show "Updating", then go into the main menu.

If the player still won't switch on, you have probably damaged the player, and there's not much else to try.

This problem is a known fault, so you may be able to change the player if it is still under warranty. Could just be coincidence when you dropped it.

If not under warranty, check out E-Bay. cheapest_electrical sell them very cheaply, with 12 months warranty.

My ipod screen is cracked and and a couple weeks ago it got dropped while it was raining now the screen won't react to my touch

Your Ipod needs repairing. Take it to an Apple repairer and get a quote. If the repair is too high then put your money towards a new Ipod.

This is my final cry: My mp3 sansa wont turn on, i made the mistake of dropping it a week ago and it wont turn on. Ive tried the reset the method(15-30secs) but it doesnt work...... at all. it wont turn...

You could try the Updater program and see if you can un-brick the chip. Go to the SanDisk site and download the Updater program, follow all instructions. That is the only thing that might work, as it may have broken an internal circuit.

Ipod Nano doesnt turn on AT ALL

plug it to your computer, load up itunes, if your ipod owners link comes up, find your factory reset button, you won't lose any music or info, it will just reset itself to the settings when you first bought, i had the same problem.

Mp3 playr yp-k3 wont turn on after being charged, we only brought it a week ago and has never worked. Weve tryed resettin the player but still wont turn on.

take it back. it is not worth the trouble if you've only bought it for a week.
if it is a lion battery like the creative mp3s, then charge it for at least a day to begin with.
