My Dell MP3 Player Won't Charge

My battery is pretty much dead and I keep trying to recharge the battery, but it won't charge. When I plug it it to either the computer or to an outlet, all it does is turn on. Can someone please help me?

    same issue with it not charging all I can get it to do is flash, tried finding a replacement but no one seems to offer a 660 mAh LP battery anymore, it is a creative labs battery, BA20203R60700, Dell dosen't support this unit and I let them know that it is bull.

    I have the Dell Pocket DJ MP3 Player, the battery wont take a charge. That wouldn't be a problem if I could find out how to open it and replace the battery. Called DELL and found out, they do not have a battery and wont service it either! Which leaves me with a USELESS MP3 player unless I have it plugged into the AC adapter! Does anyone have any suggestions, other than throw it away?

I had the same problem for weeks. Very frustrating. Try the following as it brought my pocket dj back to life. I found that (while plugged into an AC adapter) by inserting a paper clip in the hole on the bottom (reset button) and holding it there for 5 secs it would power cycle the dj then the charging icon would appear in the top left corner, however it did go away after 5 icon flashes. I did this repeatedly. I noticed that every time I pwr cycled it , I got more icon flashes and it would charge for a bit longer. Finally it charged completely. Weird but this is what worked for my player.

Buy a mini USB cable at your local dollar store and break off the mini end. Take out the battery and then take pins 1 & 4 (Red & Black) and apply to battery directly for a while ( about 15 - 20 minutes should do it). Then take a non-broken mini USB cable and plug it in then turn off DJ. Some DJs for some reason will only charge on USB 2.0. If the DJ falls under 5% charge ( I think 5%) it will not charge so this approach would solve that problem.

DC2017 PORTABLE DVD PLAYER WILL NOT CHARGE

If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.
