You can buy a new USB female connector and solder it on the PCB of your MP3 player.
You will need a female Mini-USB Type B connector, a soldering iron with a fine tip, flux and some solder wire.
1. Open the case of the MP3 player and look for the spot the lost USB connector was soldered on. 2. Clean the pads with a cotton swab and some clear alcohol. 3. Clean the female USB connector using the same method. 4. Heat up the soldering iron to a moderate temparature. 5. Put some flux on the solder pads. 6. Place the female USB connector on the pads and solder it on by touching the soldering iron and the solder wire on the pads until a tiny drop of solder makes the connection. The solder should flow on the pads because of the flux. 7. Re-assemble the MP3 player.
You can then test the connection using a multimeter.
Good luck!

Why isnt my ipod charging?


iPod's battery doesn't charge


Several things could keep your iPod's battery from charging. The major causes are listed below in logical order. Check each one to see if it's what's keeping your battery from charging.


Low-powered USB port

iPods that connect to USB ports require a high-power USB port.

Keyboards and some USB hubs will not charge iPod. Connect iPod directly to the computer or to a USB AC power adapter. Click here for more information.

Connect directly to computer

If you connect iPod to something that connects to the computer (like a USB hub or FireWire drive), connect iPod directly to the USB or

FireWire port on the computer.

FireWire port on a Windows PC

The FireWire (IEEE 1394) ports on some Windows-compatible computers may not be powered, and consequently won't charge iPod when you plug it in. Check here to see if the FireWire port on your PC can charge iPod.

Your computer goes to sleep

Your computer can only charge iPod when it's turned on and not asleep. Make sure your computer is on and not set to go to sleep when you want to charge iPod. Tip:

Some Macintosh computers can charge iPod even though they're asleep.
If your sleeping computer doesn't charge iPod, don't worry, just wake it and let iPod charge.


hope this helps

My mp3 player wont charge but will turn on when pouted in


connect the Sansa (via the player's USB cord) to different USB ports on the computer until the Sansa starts to charge. A weak or non-working USB port won't charge the Sansa.

  • Reset the Sansa MP3 player. Slide the player's "Power" switch all the way up to the "On" position. Hold the switch in that position for 20 seconds. The Sansa resets. Try to charge the player.
  • Install the latest firmware onto the Sansa MP3 player. Download the Sansa Firmware Updated (link in References), and then click the link in Resources for the specific model of Sansa you own to learn how to update the player's firmware.

    When you plug the reader in to recharge is a red light supposed to come on until charged? How do you know when it is fully charged?


    Yes, the red light should be turned ON after connecting the Reader to te Computer. That means the Reader is taking charge. After getting it fully charged, the red light will be turned ON. If those things will not happen to your reader, perform the below mentioned stepos::
    1. Connect the Reader to a different USB port of the Computer. 2. Connect the Reader directly to the USB port of the Computer; dont use any USB hub or adaptor to connect the Readr to the Comp. 3. Disconnect the Reader and then press the RESET button. 4. Try connecting the Reader to a different Computer to check whether the USB port of the Computer is working properly. 5. If the issue still persists, service may be required. Follow the below link to initiate the repair: http://eservice.sony.com/

    No charge...


    Hello mandag78,

    The error message you are talking about occurs when a device tries to draw more power from the USB port then the port can provide,

    Make sure you are connecting the MP3 player directly to a USB port on the computer or a USB hub that has an independent power source (one that you plug into an electrical outlet). If you are plugging your MP3 player into a USB keyboard or a non-powered hub the port may not have enough ower to charge it.

    I am assuming tha tthe Zen was working before? And that you are sing the exact same USB port and cord that you were using to charge the item previously? If so, then what you are experiencing might be a sign that the unit has failed and is in need of repair.

    Best Regards,
    Ken

    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/
