Can't turn on my mp3 player. I have tried to hold the volume buttom but it does not turn on at all.


what type of mp3 player ?

Charge your MP3 player.

The battery might just be dead, in which case letting it charge for a few hours corrects the problem.


Plug the USB data cable into the USB port on the MP3 player and insert the other end into one of the USB ports on your computer.


In a moment, the computer states that it has detected the removable device.

Sometimes the MP3 player needs to update itself, and it can only do so while connected to a computer.


When the MP3 player detects the computer, it attempts to connect to the Internet and retrieve any system updates available for the device.

Replace the battery.


The battery is usually the first part of the MP3 player to go (especially after excessive use). Although you can manually change the battery on most MP3 players, you need to send your


Apple products (iPod, iPod Nano, iPod Touch, iPhone) into the company so they can change the battery for you.


Purchase a new MP3 player.

If your MP3 player has received any sort ofwater damage, it is not going to turn on at all and there is nothing you can do to fix the issue.


hope this helps

How dont know how to charge my mp3 player


Some things to check for when your player does not act like its taking a charge. USB Cable Make sure that the USB cable is properly plugged in and use the original cable that came with your player. Computer in Hibernation mode Make sure the computer isn't entering hibernation or sleep mode while the device is connected. The computer must be ON in order to charge your player. USB Port 2.0 Make sure the player is connected to a USB 2.0 port (1.1 occasionally causes charging problems). USB Port location Try plugging into different USB ports (i.e. USB port in the back of the computer); occasionally the front USB ports have limited power to charge up the device. Battery Make sure the battery is fully charged. It takes approximately 3 hours to fully charge the battery. Latest firmware Depending on what player you have, make sure it's up to date with the latest firmware. AC charger (optional) AC chargers (sold separately) have a 500-1000 milliamp max output, which provides much better charging ability than a USB port.

How do I charge my 1808L mp3 8gb portable media player


You should have received a short USB cord with your 1808.
First, turn the mp3 player OFF.
Next plug the small end of the cord into the bottom of the 1808.
Then plug the other end into any USB port of your computer.
You should get a popup message saying that your computer has found a new device, if not, after one minute, turn on the 1808.
The mp3 player charges any time it is plugged into the USB port,

How do i charge my sansa mp3?


  • Step 1:Plug the appropriate end of the USB link cable that came with your SanDisk MP3 player into the MP3 player itself. The port for this cable can be found on the right side of most models of SanDisk MP3 players.
  • Step 2:Plug the other end of the USB link cable into a free USB port on your computer. This will effectively connect your SanDisk MP3 player to your computer.
  • Step 3:Turn your computer on. This will cause your SanDisk MP3 player to automatically begin drawing power from the computer and charging its battery. On the screen, an indicator light will flash yellow while the player is charging.
  • Step 4:Disconnect the cable from both your MP3 player and your computer when the device has finished charging. You will be able to tell when the charge is complete when the indicator light that previously was flashing yellow appears as solid green.

    Files will not load


    Try reformatting the drive to factory defaults. I would also try this unit on other PCs to verify that the USB port will not work correctly. Does the USB port on your Sony Walkman MP3 player have any damage or broken pins/connectors on the USB port?

    This model doesn't charge through the USB port. It needs charging with the external power supply.
