Could be electrical/interior - need to be replaced; but try this first: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

When i plug my mp3 into the computer it won't even charge


Re-seat the battery. You can pull the battery and re-seat it in place.
Have you tried all the normal stuff? Hook up the player on the rear of the computer these ports on the rear are more suited for power requirements of charging devices. Next do you have the right USB cable for the player, many may fit but they are not all alike. Have you tried to reseat the battery?
  • Then try all this.
Reset the device.
  • 1. Press and hold the Power/Menu button for approximately 20 seconds.
  • 2. Release the Power/Menu button.
  • 3. Press the Power/Menu button again to turn on the player.
Then you can do what is called a power cycle.

  • Remove the battery.
  • 1. Connect the device to the PC.
  • 2. Leave the device connected for about 2 minutes.
Turn on the device
  • 1. Disconnect the player from the PC. and Quickly
  • 2. Insert a fresh AAA battery into the player.
  • 3. Turn on the player.

Charging mp3 player


If your MP3 has an inbuilt Li-Ion battery (e.g. no compartment for a standard/Ni-MH AAA battery), then connecting the player to your computer will normally charge it - this is the case for the PD-6070 'stick' player. Your player will also indicate that it is being charged (or not charged!) via the battery level/power indicator which is located on the top RHS.
Hope it helps!

How to reset the Sandisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player:

Hold down the Power/Resetbutton for about 15 seconds to perform a normal reset.

Otherwise, drain the battery completely by forcing it on until the rechargeable battery is completely drained: this will reset the unit completely.

Mp3 player won't cut on


when you plug a charger to your mp3 it plays, because you power from a charger, part of current goes to aset and make it play and also charge your battery.
when you unplug it from charger than battery does not manage to provide power to set.
get a meter and set at amps dc. and check your battery current out side.
i suspect that your battery is not holding charge.

Computer Freezes


Make sure you have installed Philips Device Manager from the product CD.

With the player powered off:

Press and hold VOL+ whilst connecting to the PC.

PC will show drive as Recovery Device (or similar) and device manager will start and show "Your device has an error...."

Click repair and follow the on-screen prompts.

When prompted, disconnect the player and power on.

Player will show "Loading" and then shut down.

Power on again.

Player will show "Updating" and then shut down again.

Player can now be powered up as normal.
