My m3904-a wont turn on i charged it ,on plug and computer, and nothing tryed the reset many times and nothing so what do i do


I had the same problem and I found a solution to make it work but do this ONLY as a last resort because this ERASES all of your files and you will have to download them again. Plug your mp3 into the computer. If your mp3 doesn't register on the computer then hold down the start button on the mp3 and hit the RESET button on the back of the mp3 with a toothpick. Once it registers on the computer, hit the start button on the computer, click on Computer, then go to the drive that is associated with your mp3. Right click on that drive. Click on Restore Device Defaults. I am not a pro but this worked for me. Good luck!

Every time i turn on my mp3 player it tells me format error. Ive formatted it a couple different times now to try and fix it, but nothing works. What am i doing wrong or what should i do?


If your mp3 is flash card based, you may need to just replace the card. If your mp3 player is hard-drive based, the hard drive may be bad. Usually those can be replaced by the consumer as well.

Mp3 player won't connect to PC


These problems sound to me like its time to format your hard drive. To format the hard drive, put your Zen into Recovery Mode. Put a paperclip in the reset hole and hold the on/off button in the "on" position. Then release the paperclip and continue to hold the on button until you see the screen change to Recovery Mode.

Select the Format option, then Reboot. If your Zen still isn't recognized by your computer, this likely means there is a chip failure on the motherboard. Click here for more troubleshooting advice.

Computer not detecting


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.

THEN, do the "Repair" in the Philips Device Manager

Mp3 is really screwed :S


Don't play basketball with your MP3 player on board. Your MP3 player is ruined. Buy a new one.
