Insignia Pilot 80G MP3 player battery life

The spec's for my Insignia Pilot 80G MP3 player has the a battery life of up to 25 hours and I can't even get 8 hours out of it before I have to charge it. Do I have a defective battery? I do have a warranty on the Insignia Pilot. Why doesn't my player last more than 5 or less hours?

Frustrated customer,

    Oops! I meant "Why doesn't my player last 25 hours instead of less then 5 hours".

    I can't get more than 7 hours out of the battery. Do I need a new battery? Does the warranty cover this? Any suggestions?

Hey General Chao,

Unfortunately, battery life can largely depend on how any given device is used - the louder the speakers or the brighter the LCD screen, the shorter a battery will maintain its charge. The 25-hour battery life quoted by the manufacturer may simply be an estimate based on the lowest possible settings for player volume, backlight and display settings. This means that the average user will probably encounter a significantly shorter battery life, especially when using maximum volume settings to compensate for ambient noise or other interference.

If you're still concerned, remember that you can always contact the manufacturer for further assistance at their toll-free hotline: 877-467-4289. Should your MP3 player be suffering from an actual hardware failure, Insignia may be able to provide you with additional trouble-shooting support or repairs if necessary.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

My insignia sport MP3 player froze so i turned it off and now it won't turn on, i tried to charge it thinking it was low baterry but it doesn't charge either


Hello,

I had the same problem. The reason is because you have not charged your player, in a while.

First of all, try this.

Reset the Insignia Pilot if it freezes during normal use. To reset the device, press and hold the "Power/Hold" switch to the right for approximately 10 seconds until the screen turns off. The "Power/Hold" switch is located on the top of the player.

If that does not work, you need to remove the battery and then put it back.

Here's how to do it.

Then plug your cable and wait until it comes back to life. Be patient, it may even take a couple of days, until a full charge is accomplished.

Good luck!

When I plug in my mp3 player it will not stay on


Sounds like your battery is SHOT. If using a Internal battery, let the computer charge it and just leave it alone for a FEW Hours. Possibly a full 24 hours. If that doesnt work try returning it. Or get a used one for parts to repair.

RCA TH1101 MP3 Player short battery life


Are you using the cheap AAA batteries? If you are, that's your problem. Try getting some more expensive batteries or even better get some rechargeable. That's what I did with my RCA Pearl. Bought the batteries yesterday and it's still working on the same battery almost 24 hours later. hope this helps. Good luck my friend.

Short battery life


Get a replacement from Philips if it seems abnormal and you are still under warranty. 8-9 hours is normal battery life for this unit - the product specs are "ideal" - not relaistic. No way to dim this unit.
