    i bought a battery for my insignia pilot and it still wouldn't charge

  • Johnny Gunn Jun 28, 2008

    Hi; It seems as if I have the same problem as you. There seems (so far) to be not an easy solution. Very shortly it will be a trip back to Best Buy. My question is... Have you found a solution yet?? Please let me know if you have inza@comcast.net. I am starting to think it has to do with virus protection in some way. I say this because if I plug the unit into my wife's PC, it sees the Insignia player as a drive, just as it should. However, with my PC...nothing.

When you first got it, did you let it charge for, three to four hours before turning it on?

On some systems, the usb does not supply enough power for battery charging, so it briefly comes on, then goes off. Also there are power adapters with a USB plug on them for charging things that use the USB for power. You may have to end up buying one. Though they are very usefull now that more and more devices use the USB for battery charging power.

Why isnt my ipod charging?


iPod's battery doesn't charge


Several things could keep your iPod's battery from charging. The major causes are listed below in logical order. Check each one to see if it's what's keeping your battery from charging.


Low-powered USB port

iPods that connect to USB ports require a high-power USB port.

Keyboards and some USB hubs will not charge iPod. Connect iPod directly to the computer or to a USB AC power adapter. Click here for more information.

Connect directly to computer

If you connect iPod to something that connects to the computer (like a USB hub or FireWire drive), connect iPod directly to the USB or

FireWire port on the computer.

FireWire port on a Windows PC

The FireWire (IEEE 1394) ports on some Windows-compatible computers may not be powered, and consequently won't charge iPod when you plug it in. Check here to see if the FireWire port on your PC can charge iPod.

Your computer goes to sleep

Your computer can only charge iPod when it's turned on and not asleep. Make sure your computer is on and not set to go to sleep when you want to charge iPod. Tip:

Some Macintosh computers can charge iPod even though they're asleep.
If your sleeping computer doesn't charge iPod, don't worry, just wake it and let iPod charge.


hope this helps

My Go gear vibe 4gb MP3 battery is flat and won't recharge.


If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Why won't my mp3 coby player won't charge


Your coby is not charging anymore..The battery probably needs to be replaced with a new one..Please check your connection when you charge it..There should be an icon that shows your battery is charging. If it does so that means your coby is charging but your battery cant store the energy anymore.

Won't come on after charging in usb hub


Depending on how long you've had the player, the batteries may need replacing.

I have seen a problem where the computer would not recognize the player and would not charge it, however.

First, I recommend trying to charge it directly from the computer USB port (not the hub) if possible. If that doesn't help, try reinstalling the software for the player to see if the computer will then recognize it and allow charging.

If neither of these fix the problem, it's probably time to replace the batteries.

Good luck!

I plug into the computer and i also tried to charge it with my ihome. both times i unplugged it, it just shut off and i couldnt turn it back on without plugging it back into the comeputer! Please help.


Seems to be a charging/discharging issue for the battery. Try using the wall adapter only for charging and wait for it to fully charge before connecting to the computer or any other devices.

If your Zen V is dead, wont respond to anything, try this, plug it in to the computer, hold the power switch in the on position, THEN trigger the reset button, worked like a charm for mine, I had thought it a lost cause."

Recharging mp3


Whenever the PD-6070 is connected to a PC, it will charge. The battery indicator on the OLED screen will slowly fill over and over as it is charging. When the charging is complete, the battery indicator will stay filled.
