Battery refuses to hold a charge

The battery in this MP3 player won't hold the charge I put on it. I turn it on and it plays for a few seconds and then shuts off. I have let it charge over night twice (once for 12 hours, once for over 12), used the "reset" button which seemed to help it work for a week or so and then it started doing the exact same behavior. I tried hitting reset again and it's on the charger now (switch is turned to off) but I don't know what else to do. I've checked their website for any recall information or firmware updates but I can't find anything. Thoughts?

    I have the same problem; I have charged my Coby MP3 player overnight; but when I try to listen to the tracks I've saved on it, it only plays for a few seconds (30 seconds at the most) and then shuts itself off. This is concerns me because I bought it less than two months ago. Any suggestions would be helpful.

I have a very similar problem with my coby... ever since I purvhased it, it refuses to hold a charge. I have tried leaving it obernight and it just plays a few songs (max 10) before dying. Try charging it with it on the "on" position. I think it's strange that we're all having the same problem-- there just cheap! you get what you pay for... You think a wall adapter would make a difference? ...maybe it's not charging quick enough... idk.

I put a sdcard in the mp3 player & it still won't hold a charge or save pictures that I take, why?


If you charge the MP3 player using the USB cable and the battery will not charge up then the battery is worn out and needs replacing.

Swagger MP3 audio player does not hold a charge. I plugged it in overnight and could bearly play a song in the morning.


Most likely you have a full charge but the problem is FALSE Advertising! Swagger MP3 players only support MP3's downloaded from Amazon.com, any other MP3's will only play for a matter of seconds before shutting off. These players are a total rip off.

Will not turn on.


It's likely your battery is flat. These devices are designed to run only from their internal battery. If the battery is flat, it won't turn on. To charge the battery connect your charging source (USB port or wall charger). Turn the player on with the mechanical swich. Next hold down the play button for more than 4 seconds. The player will turn off and begin to charge. After about 6 hrs the battery will be full and you can use the player.

Even when the battery is fully charged(3.6v) the player turns off by itself in a few seconds. However, when connected to a PC, it continues playing normally.

Networking Trouble?


Make sure you are using the USB cable that originally came with the Walkman. Make sure the hold switch is not turned on.
Reset the player.
Try charging using another USB port on your computer - if that fails, try charging on another computer completely (but make sure it has the same OS or you will experience formatting- related issues).
My general info sheet: 1.       “My Mp3 player won’t turn on” or “My Mp3 player won’t hold a charge.” (POWER SUPPLY ISSUE)
The tricky part about these issues is that there are several possible causes – it could be software or it could be hardware.  Before you try anything else, make sure the mp3 player’s “hold” or “lock” switch is not engaged.  See your user’s manual for location of switch/ instructions (available from manufacturer’s website).  If the hold is engaged, the mp3 player will not charge, and it will not turn on.  Then, make sure the player is plugged into a compatible computer with a USB 2.0 port.  Many laptops and older desktops lack sufficient power resources to properly power/charge/utilize an mp3 player.  Next, try resetting your mp3 player.  If that still fails, try your device’s “recovery” button.  There is a specific button that triggers the recovery mode – volume + for most players, REC button for others, play for others, and skip forward for still others.  The general formula goes something like this, although you may have to substitute another button for “volume +”: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off even if you have to reset the player to turn it off (if it is dead, this won’t be a problem), 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 (even if it is completely dead) - it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
Make sure that your mp3 player is not designed for a country other than your own – this information can be obtained from the manufacturer in most cases.  European and some Asian current systems are different than in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.  If you plug a United States mp3 player into a European wall outlet, you will fry the player.  If you plug a German mp3 player into a US outlet, it will have insufficient power to power the player.  There are transformers available that can correct for this issue.
If you have lost the original charger for your mp3 player, try to obtain the original charger.  If the original is no longer available, check your product specs to get EXACTLY the correct voltage.  It may seem harmless to use a 5V charger on a 4.5V mp3 player, but in many cases you will damage the mp3 player by doing this.
Also, never unplug an mp3 player while it is transferring music/files/performing a firmware upgrade (and also, never perform these activities when your player is not at least 75% charged).  This is a sure way to kill most mp3 players.  As a safety rule, always check and use the “safely remove hardware” option if it is available on your computer – lower right hand corner (green arrow pointing to chip) in most Windows taskbars.  If it is not available, wait one full minute after your last file transfer to unplug the mp3 player – even if your mp3 player says “OK to disconnect.”
If your mp3 player uses AA, AAA, or any type of user-removable battery, you must take extra steps to prevent equipment damage when replacing batteries (most product manufacturers do not know this tip).  Before removing the batteries, power the player off and let it sit for one minute or longer.  Run your hand along the side of your computer tower to dissipate static electricity (or use any other method available to dissipate static electricity).  Use only and exactly the replacement battery recommended by the manufacturer.  Carefully remove the old battery.  Hold and gently squeeze the new battery for a few seconds to dissipate static.  Hold the mp3 player case in one hand, and carefully insert the new battery.  One single static spark, and your mp3 player could be history.  Also, check your product documentation beforehand to see if removing the battery will result in your song’s being erased/data being lost.  Many, if not most, mp3 players do not have replaceable batteries – the manufacturers do not have them, and popping open your mp3 player more often than not causes damage to additional components.
If the solutions above do not work, and you have gone through troubleshooting with the manufacturer, you may have hardware damage and the player will need to be replaced.

Coby MP-C582 Will not turn on


Check on the side of the player and make sure it is not locked that was why ours would not turn on. Once I unlocked it worked fine

Battery doesn't hold charge


It is just like that because it isn't done recharging. After a while it will turn back to what it's real power level is. You should let your MP3 player recharge for over an hour at least to have it fully recharged.
