Re: I can not charge the battery
Try using a port on the back of your computer. The Universal Serial Bus (USB) can only provide 500 Milliamps of power and in most cases the ports on the front are a shared bus so they can only provide 250 Milliamps of power. This may not be enough to charge the player. In most cases each USB connection on the back of your computer is a seperate bus and can provide the full 500 Milliamps necessary to charge the player. If that doesn't correct the issue you can try flashing the firmware and see if that makes a difference. Below is a link for the instructions for flashing the firmware. If that doesn't correct the issue you may need to contact their customer service and find out what you need to qualify for a warranty replacement.

When I switch the MP3 player on on the screen appear TELEFUNKEN and then it automatically switch off again. I checked the battery and it is fully loaded. When I connect the MP3 to the socket with the USB cord to charge the battery on the screen appears the following: IDLE and some kind of symbol. Can you please help?
If the iPod will not turn off, try to reset it. Press and hold the
Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten
seconds, until either the Apple logo or battery symbol appears. If the
battery symbol appears, continue to charge iPod touch until it is fully
that does not work reset the ipod while it is connected to the power.
You do this by pressing and holding the sleep/wake button and the home
button at the same tme for at least 10 seconds, until either the apple logo or battery symbol appears. If the battery symbol appears, charge the ipod until it is fully charged.
I had the same problem! Went on Sony trouble shooter found this - Cause:
Battery is 100% discharged. Therefore, PC's USB with 5V/500mA set up has not enough power to start up the charging process because loading current is greater than the set up, therefore USB is disabled immediately due to sudden current load. Remedy:
Battery must not be discharged 100%
If it happens then the supplied AC adaptor must be used firstly because it is providing 5V/800mA power. After a couple of minutes the unit can be connected to PC without problem then it can continue the charging during file transfer, etc.
Basically when the battery is totally flat the computer power is not strong enough to charge the battery and run the mp3 player! I bought a usb adapter charger and charged it up and now it works!
HOPE IT WORKS FOR YOU!
After 3 1/2 hours, the battery went dead. I waited a couple of minutes, then plugged it into my computer to see if the battery would charge. It started charging. A few hours later I went back to check on it, and it showed a full battery. I disconnected it from my computer, and turned it on. It came on, but the screen just said "Low Battery". I then plugged it back into my computer, and the screen said "Rebuilding Library". I left it for about a 1/2 hour, and it was done. I unplugged it from my computer, turned it on, and it works now!! Hope this helps out everyone else who has the same problem.
Hello Kawase, I would suggest you try charging the unit this one time by connecting it to the computer. I suspect that the charger may be defective if plugging the wall charger into the iPod has no effect on the low battery warning. If the iPod is able to be charged from the USB port on your computer that would tend to confirm that the charger is not working. If the iPod does not charge when connected to either the computer or the wall charger then you may very well have a another defective iPod. Best Regards Ken "Go Ahead. Use Us."
The usb message has nothing to do with the ability of the unit to charge. It just means that the port on your computer is recognised as a USB 1.1 port.
It is more likely that the battery no longer holds a charge. The battery can be replaced but it is difficult to open up the unit without damaging the casing. There are instructions on opening up the unit on youtube. Other than buying a faulty unit with a working battery I don't know how to get hold of the batteries. Be careful when replacing the battery. If it is connected the wrong way you will fry your unit.
