    Same problem. Replaced battery and have exactly the same behavior as with old battery. When plugged in the charging icon flashes a couple times, then disappears.

Does it show the charge icon?
maybe you should replace your batteries.

My Toshiba Gigabeat won't work!


This happens when the Gigabeat battery is run down too far. The only hope is to charge it with the AC charger.

If you don't have one, you can probably get something adequate. The standard adaptor is p/n ADP-15HH, 5V 3A output, center positive, take the unit with you and match the connector - I don't have a useful ruler handy.

If you do not have or cannot get an adaptor, try plugging the device into a USB port and wait at least a day, no kidding. If you can get the port to kick in fir high current, it may come back to life. My Ubuntu box has done it once, as a test.

You can only avoid this by charging the Gigabeat before it runs down too much. This is the real weakness of the Gigabeat, IMHO. That and the problems they get losing the firmware, but that's another topic.

You can sometimes find chargers on eBay, but you will have to pay a little...

MES60V suddenly stopped charging.


Download, and install the firmware. It should work after that. It might of formatted the storage partition of the device, but you can resync it after you update the firmware on the device. You can get the firmware here: Gigabeat S Firmware.

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.

Gigageat charging


I have a couple of Sansa sandisk 2gb (Purchased at BestBuy after Thanksgiving 2007) and they seem to use the same connector as the met400. Try looking at those for an adapter.
