Dell Pocket DJ does not charge using USB Cord

I have had my pocket DJ for some time now. The USB cord worked fine. Lately I am unable to charge the MP3 Player and as such have not been able to listen to it because I can't turn it on.

    I just got this product and can't figure out how to charge it, as it doesn't seem to charge using the usb cable.

    Once the battery is drained these units will only charge using the ac adaptor, once you have charged it with the adaptor it will accept a charge from a USB cable unless it is fully discharged, then you will have to use the ac adaptor again. Strange but true

The Dell Pocket DJ needs a firmware update to be recognized by Windows Vista to Windows 10 but you will need a Windows XP computer to upgrade the firmware. The firmware upgrade will not run on Windows 7 or above. I will try to run the firmware update in a Win XP virtual machine and get back to this forum with the results. I own 2 used PDJ's and have converted one to solid state drive using a CF to SD adapter and a 16 GB 90MB/s SD card. No issues so far

If you find none of this has worked you need to try some other decvie in the same usb port. If it is plugged in and operates correctly, you have narrowed it down to the dj unit. Since the chord has tested good, we should go to the unit itself. Four tiny screws located on the outside of the case need to be removed in order to open it. Carefully remove the hard drive, then the battery.

Now with the cable hooked up to the usb port you will use a meter to check some voltages. Perhaps you have a friend who can help. The batteries should read 3.6 VDC. Measured like that its not a true indication of the state of the batteries, but tell us that the charging circuit is probably working okay.

Put it back together carefully, making sure every connection is properly seated and there is no damage. Try it again, making sure you hold down the button for 3-4 seconds. If you have done all of this, the problem is electronic and at a component level. Suggest you take it or send it to the repair shop dell has.

You need the AC adaptor, once it has a partial charge it will charge from USB but once it is completely dead the only way back is the AC adaptor. Strange but true

Dell Dj 5 will not hold a charge

FYI, replacing the battery did not solve the problem of the battery refusing to charge. Instead, I've spent $30 at batteryship.com and since I've opened the battery I can't return it. There must be a software or hardware failure that's preventing the unit from charging the battery.
