What, like it's gonna get a charge from proximity to coal or radionucleides? You could either make a new charge port by finding the appropriate contacts inside the unit and wiring them to a new jack (from Jameco or Goldmine Electronics or some sacrificial old USB thing,) or you could attempt to unsolder the old port and solder on a replacement (from similar sources, or broken eBayed e250 replacements with low shipping fees.)

Wireless charger? Seriously...like just hooking up the car exhaust to some turbine port on it? Somehow there's an obvious way that makes sense, but I haven't latched onto your meaning....

No - I know you may rate me poorly for this. But there is definitely not a wireless charger for this - i'm not guessing - it's a fact.

yes, plugging it into a usb port (either through a wall charger or a computer) will start to charge the mp3 player. an indicator that it is charging should show up on the screen.

The battery is not charging


You can try and reset the player. resetting a Clip 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.
Some things to check for when your player does not act like its taking a charge.
USB Cable Make sure that the USB cable is properly plugged in and use the original cable that came with your player.
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.
USB Port 2.0 Make sure the player is connected to a USB 2.0 port (1.1 occasionally causes charging problems).
USB Port location Try plugging into different USB ports (i.e. USB port in the back of the computer); occasionally the front USB ports have limited power to charge up the device.
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.

No power mp5 i use a cell phone charger in my mp5


What you will need to do when mp3 player does not charge. First use another charger to test if it's the charger is working properly.

And secondly After testing for charger, and still it does not charge, that means the charging port on the mp3 player where the charger is been plugged in is not working properly. You will need to replace the charging port.
Alternately you can charge it from your computer by using USB cable. It automatically charges when connected to a USB port

Charging the mp3mp4 player


  1. Get a USB wall charger. These are AC adapters that plug directly into the outlet. You then plug the USB from your MP3 into the port on the adapter.
  2. Charge your MP3 player on the go. There are also charging kits that plug into the cigarette lighter or power plug in your car. These kits come with a DC power adapter that has a port on the end for you to plug in your MP3.
  3. Acquire Apple iPod specific chargers. When you need to charge your iPod music player through an outlet, look for the Universal USB car charger or the Universal USB travel charger made specifically for Apple products.
Make sure that you have your player on a power strip or surge protector so that if you get a surge you wont fry your player.

Creative Zen MP3 won't charge with mains adaptor


Don't worry that doesn't mean that your mp3 player is faulty, if there is any fault it is from the charger but since the usb charges it well, just continue to use it. It doesn't mean the player is faulty, IT HAPPENS.

My mp3 will not charge


Eh, probably keep the needles well stowed in the future, and a silicone plug (if you have some spare all-silicone caulk...) in the port at the Sansa's base. You can of course repair or replace the socket; the easiest way is to find the wiring correspondence on the charger cable to the USB port (using a DVM in continuity test mode...and needles, but little force) and concentrate on restoring the position of those contacts so it recharges, epoxying things into place.
Try posting a (link to a) photo of the port, if that's easy for you.

Using a charger for the battery that has you unscrewing it often sounds unsettling, but of course you can. Interstate Battery and such can probably let you on to what they use (it's probably what I see on eBay for $40ish when I search for Li Polymer battery charger .
The low-cost way is to look at the charger descriptions at linear.com (e.g. http://www.linear.com/pc/productDetail.jsp?navId=H0,C1,C1003,C1037,C1078,P9551 or http://para.maxim-ic.com/search.mvp?fam=batt_chrg&hs=1 ) and buy that or a similar product and support components from an components vendor like Jameco.com or Electronics Goldmine, or a local store that has those things, building it to plug onto a spare USB header or port on a computer. You just want to match the charger type to the battery chemistry (LiMH or Li____ will be on the battery as a hint) and rely on the chip to handle all the charging current the smallish battery can take on.

Charger


Your USB port must be repaired. In the meantime, hopefully, your computer has another USB port that you can use. Battery is a replaceable lithium ion rechargeable battery. There are battery chargers that you can connect to wall outlets - the type that plug into the computer would probably require that you plug it into the USB port, which you said is broken - so that's a no-go. There are multiple vendors for battery chargers - one possibility is http://www.greenbatteries.com/

My mp3 player port


Ohhh - you broke the port on the mp3 player itself - must be replaced - cannot be repaired for less than the cost of a new Mp3 player.

The battery can also be charged using an AC adapter (not included) or a car
adapter (not included) and you will be able to play your device while
charging with one of the adapters. The battery will reach approximately 70%
charge in 2.5 hours and full charge in about 3.5 hours.
