    I Have the Coby MP-C7085 and there's something wrong with it. I turn it on but it freezes on the loading screen and I can never get to the menu. Also the only way to turn it off is to use the reset button. I try to recharge it but that doesn't work. What should I do?

    My friend took my mp3 player home.

    She came back and said it wouldnt turn on.

    I asked her what she did.

    She said nothing.

    If you know nothing about mp3 players.

    Try taking the back off and experimenting with it.

My coby 7085 didnt power on w/ button..if you take it apart you might see the power button in the board itself is coming loose..if you know anyone that knows about dad took some wires..soldered them onto where the power button was (on the "motherboard") we can turn it on by connecting the two wires..i know it sounds ghetto...but if you have no options it and have no $$ helps :)

My coby mp705 wont turn on but when i plug it to my computer it works.. what kind of assistance shall i do to make my coby back to normal? any kind of answer would be wonderful

sounds like the battery is the problem if it wont start wothout a power source

Check the system requirements for the MP3 player.

Most Coby players require Windows XP or higher and at least 1 GB of RAM to function correctly.

Check your Coby owner's manual to ensure that your machine meets all the required specifications before proceeding.

Charge the MP3 player fully.

Often, a player will act unexpectedly if it has a low charge.

A charge can also help reset the MP3 player if it has frozen or locked up.

Once the player has finished charging to 100%, see if the problem persists.

Re-sync your player.

Plug the MP3 player back in to the computer and then remove all the files.

If you have not done so already, make sure they are backed up to your hard drive.

Unplug your MP3 player and then re-load all of your files.

Check for corrupted and wrong format files.

Most Coby MP3 players only play back MP3 files, and will perform unexpected operations

if files of other formats are uploaded to the device.

Go through your uploaded files and check the extensions.

Anything that does not say ".mp3" or is not listed in your owner's manual needs to be deleted from the device.

hope this helps

Coby mp3 is frozen

Try to hold the turn on button for one minute.
If its still froze, try to charge it or connect it to the PC to see if there's any difference on the screen.

Coby MP-C7095 Won't turn on

On my Colby player there is a small reset hole in the back. Mine has sometimes just stopped playing and shuts off. If you use a small wire (paperclip works well) push it in and reset it.
