    if i do the needle reset, i can get the player to turn on, but all i get is the welcome screen before it turns off. The device/firmware manager cannot see the device when i connect to the computer. i have tried the volume control+ while connecting to the computer with no success. there are still signs of life, but it is looking pretty grim. mine is the sa3245 type.

    My mp3 playern wont turn on or charge and the computer cant recognize it how do i fix it

  • fantazkid May 18, 2009

    my mp3 player has been freezing up and rebooting for a while but if i were to press the reset button it would be ok and go on buisness as usual, so i paid no attention to it. One day it shut off but when i pressed reset it didnt come on. when i plugged it up, it didnt register. So i figured i simply caught a virus. A few weeks later i plugged it into the usb and it registered but imediately shut off and this repeated over and over again. what can i do for my mp3 player. i feel my problem is simular but not the same. what can i do? do i simply have to go out and buy a new one or can it be fixed?

Make sure the hold/lock is not engaged

then: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.

Ive had my player do this 3 times i tried all kinds of stuff the first 2 times that at the end I had no idea what made it work. I finally figured it out on the third time.... Get a small needle and hit reset it will turn on the player. then just plug it back into your computer and it will start charging =)

Had the same issue. The batteries were dead, and the usb cable that i plugged in to the computer was junk, changed the cable and windows recognized it right away.

SOURCE: wont charge

Have you tried to reset? The reset button is right by the lock switch. It's small so use a pin or something small like that.
