The mp3 player wont charge. plug into computer and it shows charging but as soon as it is disconnected it shuts off and wont turn on.


Some mp3's don't expressly charge on the computer, that why when you connect it, the computer only sees it as a flash but is not actually charging it all this while and the battery is completely down. So try and get an external charger for it, the battery may be completely dead.Or probably you need to change the battery. Hope that puts a smile on your face.

How do I charge my daughters amt mp3 hello kitty clip on. when I plug it into my computer do I turn the player on to charge or keep it off. she was kind enough to lose the directions.


G'Day To charge your AMT mp3 player you must first plug it into your PC USB port using the supplied cable. Next turn on the player using the sliding switch on its side.The indicator shows the battery is charging, but it is not. To make it charge you have to turn the player off. To do this, hold down the "play" button until you get the "Bye-Bye" message. The screen will go black and the battery will now charge. Do not use the slide swich to turn off!...woozie. Australia

Won't turn on after trying to download songs


Your battery might be dead.

Connect the player to a computer with the usb cable.

You should see a progress bar indicating the the battery is charged. Wait until it's fully charged.

Barbie mp3 quit working


You have to change the battery. To do that you have to take that thing off on the back of the MP3 player and unscrew it to change the battery.

It will not play music


I was having trouble with my daughter's MP3. The RCA website said to download Pearl Firmware (Version 2.) (http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/downloads.aspx?product=25). I did, several times, but it would not work. Finally, I cheked the box "Format Data Area" under Download options. Once I did this my computer immedialty saw the Pearl and I was able to re-load all my daughter's songs in Media Player.

I hope this helps. I was so worried that I was going to have to buy her a new player.

The player won't turn on.


Hey illinifansx5,

Have you tried plugging in the unit to your PC and then pressing the reset button for 5 seconds?

Also, try removing the battery for 30 seconds, then replace and attempt to charge.

If these options don't work, it may be a hardware or battery failure and you should try to return it.

4)Right click, then click format, window will pop up, on file format, choose FAT
