Possibly hardware, but:

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.

Can someone help me on turning the device back on. it was working before i drain the battery but before that it dindt detect the keyboard or the mouse, how can i get it to power on?


Charge the battery to full first; for at least 10 hour. then check. Do not switch On the system till the battery has charged to full condition.
It will be alright thereafter. If the battery do not last for long, reparable it. it will be weak. No reason to worry.

Shuffle not working


If an iPod appears not to turn on, check the hold switch on the device.


If this switch is activated while the device is off, it will not power on again until the hold switch is turned off.


If that is determined not to be the problem, the battery's charge should be checked.

When the battery is no longer holding a charge, the device will not power on, but will show a battery icon on the screen for a few seconds.


If you see this icon while trying to boot up the iPod, just connect it to the USB cable and allow the battery to charge, which can sometimes take up to 30 minutes before the iPod becomes operable again.


If no battery icon appears when trying to turn on the device, try resetting the iPod.

Once reset, the device should turn on, but if it does not, the battery may need to be drained first (by leaving the iPod disconnected from power for up to 24 hours), and the reset procedure tried again.

hope this helps

No problem just bought a mpd-1760 from someone its brand new never even been used ,but no instructions/need to know how long to charge battery for first time or at all //charging time for battery to watch...


Hello,
To charge the battery back you want to
  1. Turn the power off the DVD player first as the battery pack will not charge with the power on.
  2. Attach the battery pack to the player.
  3. Connect the AC power adapter and the power cord to the player.
  4. Charging will now start and the Power/Charge indicator should now be orange.
  5. Do not unhook either cord until the Power/Charge turns off.
  6. Time of charging is approximately 4 1/2 hours.
  7. The battery pack will more than likely get warm while charging. This is normal. Keep it as much in the open as you can for the best ventilation possible.
  8. You will get a low power indicator on the screen when the battery has a low charge.

As for playback time you will get about 2 1/3 hours of actual playback and about 4 hours of standby with the DVD player actually on.
Regards, Tony

Charging


USB Cable Make sure that the USB cable is properly plugged in and use the original cable that came with your player. Try a USB plug o the back of the computer. These plugs have more power available.
Computer in Hibernation mode Make sure the computer isn't entering hibernation or sleep mode while the device is connected. The computer must be ON in order to charge your player. Check you screensaver and power settings.
USB Port 2.0 Make sure the player is connected to a USB 2.0 port (1.1 occasionally causes charging problems).
Battery Make sure the battery is fully charged. It takes approximately 3 hours to fully charge the battery.
Latest firmware Depending on what Sansa player you have, make sure it's up to date with the latest firmware.
AC charger (optional) AC chargers (sold separately) have a 500-1000 milliamp max output, which provides much better charging ability than a USB port. These accessories are available on our online store.
Next try and reset the player. Resetting the player: 1. Slide and hold the Power switch up for approximately 20 seconds. 2. Release the Power switch. 3. To turn the player on, slide the Power switch up then release instantly.
Once it is back working, go to the SanDisk support site and get the updater program and update your firmware.

My sansa fuze i plug it in to the computer and it doesn't recognize the device and i have tried all usb options on the device. What do i do it wont charge at all.????


Hello,

When the Fuze can be switched on:
1. slide the power on switch shortly upwards to put the player on
2. hold the power on switch upwards for 15-20 seconds
3. release the power switch
Next try to switch the player on and see if it reacts normally.
Switch the player off again and try charging again, making connection to a computer.

When charging still doesn't start, disconnect the player from the computer:
4. slide the power switch downwards into the lock position,
forcing MSC mode
5. connect the player to the computer for charging in MSC mode
for a about 3 hours.
6. while charging use the Sansa Firmware Updater to check for
updates. When not installed already download the Sansa Updater
and run this execute file.
Updates for the player can only be performed in MSC mode.
The updater only works when you're logged in to the computer having administrator's rights and running Windows operating system.

MSC mode means that the computer sees the player as a removable disk. When in MSC mode, always disconnect through the icon "safely remove hardware" in the right corner below of the computer screen.


When the display of the player doesn't react at all after the reset and charging procedure, the battery of the player can:
a. be too far empty or
b. have a fast power loss.
The load of the power supply from the USB ports might be to weak to get the player charged.
When point a. is the case, an extra power adapter connected to a wall socket, providing more power, could help.
When the battery has had many loads it can be at its end of duty cycle. Then battery replacement will be required.

Need more help ? Just post a comment.
