Batery problem? Hi,I bought the Motorola M500 MP3 player a long time ago,and for some unknown reason I cant have the batery charging anymore with the power cord. Could it be that the battery is almost out? I heard that Motorola M500 has no spare parts and I dont know where to get a new battery.
Should I wait till the batery is out?Or does M500 is capable of recharging itself??I don t understand why the battery isnt responding anymore....

that happened when i first got my mp4. i just left it on charge for a few hours and eventually it turned on. it should tell you when its fully charged.
theres two ways mine can turn on; (its most likely very different to yours though) theres a little switch on the top of the player and you flick that to the left side. or if its been turned on recently, you can hold the play button. does the instructions say to press the ok button?
Finally I got it working again, after a lot of try's (just put the plug in for a few hours) the led was red again for a brief moment, then it starting to flash orange again.
I looked it up on a lot of forums, the problem is that the (old) bios doesn't charge the batery anymore when it is deeply discharged.
So I put the plug in and out for about 10-15 times , and the brief moment it is not flashing it's still charging. Until it is not deeply discharged anymore and then it is charging the batery like it did before.
But I still don't understand why it is not working without the batery inserted ??
Men you really got a problem! ok Try Ebay, if not www.alibaba.com sure you can find the batery there. Other ways: the batery its not charging at all? you can buy a Universal Batery Cell phone carger, these ones got the ability of charge some times baterys whit thiis kind of problem. Make an adaptation from other batery (just look details as Voltage, amps) sometimes its require soldering directly to your phone :S (pretty extreme)
check its polarity...if it is correct,then your mp3 player is broken...this can be occur when the usage for a memory or a device(see 'bath-tub curve' concept-search wikipedia if u want know more) is already at its end..nothing u can do,unless u buy new...
I had a similar problem with a MPMan. It seems the mains charger supplied with it simply does not work. Try charging the player by connnecting it to a USB port of a running computer and leaving it there for several hours. It may then work!
