I ahve a no name mpe player and try to sart it and it just comes up with the loading symbol but will not go any further


Hi there

Flip the MP3 player's "Hold" switch to "Off" if the switch is on. Depending on the MP3 player you own, this switch is likely located at the side or top of the player. Once the switch is off, try to turn the player on.

Let the battery of the MP3 player die. A frozen MP3 player is technically still running, and thus the battery for that player is being drained. Wait until the battery is fully dead before moving to Step 3.

Charge the MP3 player using either a computer (that's turned on) or an electronic MP3 charger. Charging the player's battery may "jolt" the player out of its frozen state. Connect the player to the computer or charger via the player's USB cable. Charge the player for 30 minutes before attempting to turn it on.

Sync the player with the appropriate software program (for example, Windows Media Player) for the MP3 player. Connect the player to the computer as described in the previous step. Open the software program and click the "Sync" tab at the top or side of the program. If necessary, click "Start Sync" underneath the tab. The name of the player appears under the "Sync" tab if the player has synced successfully. Try turning the player on once it has synced with the program.

Press the small "Reset" button on the MP3 player. This hard reset shuts the player down completely. Use a pin, tack or thin nail to press down the very small "Reset" button on the side or back of the MP3 player to reset the player. Then, try to turn the player on.

How to turn off nwz-a826 becuse its not turn off jut standby


To turn the portable player on, press the Play/Pause button until the screen appears. To turn the portable player off, press and hold the Play/Pause button until POWER OFF appears.

To save the battery consumption, the player will do the following:
After turning on the power, if there is no operation or playback performed for about 1 minute, the power of the player turns off.
If there is no operation for a certain period of time while in stop mode, the display turns off automatically and the player enters standby status. If there is no operation for the next 30 minutes, the power of the player turns off.

Cant find intructions?


To turn on the player
Press the >|| (center round button) button to turn on the player. The player resumes the operation from the point where you last turned off.

If “HOLD” appears in the display, slide the HOLD switch in the opposite direction of the arrow (--->) to release the HOLD function.

To turn off the player
Press and hold the >|| (center round button) button to turn off the player. “POWER OFF” appears.

Hints
If there is no operation for a certain period of time while in stop mode, the display turns off automatically to save the battery power. If there is no operation for an extended period, the player turns off completely. The batteries are consumed a little in this status.

You cannot operate the player when it is connected to a computer. Disconnect the player before operating the player.

Washed? Water damage is irreversible - that player needs to be replaced. Call Sansa and say your player won't turn on - don't mention water. See what they say.
