    I got my daughter a mp3 player for Christmas 2007. It says it has a low battery. I have seen no where on the thing a place for a battery. I hooked up the usb cable & connected it to the computer. It looks like it is charging. When I take it off the computer (8-24 hours later), and try to play it, it still says low battery. Also, we can't transfer anything from our computer to the player. What is the solution to both the problems.

You will probably have to perform a Repair, but start simple:
1) Reset your GoGear - paperclip into reset hole while player is turned on
2) Restart your computer
3) go to www.usasupport.philips.com and follow the frequently asked question for your SA5125 - My player is not recognized by PC
4) Repair the device: (WARNING: this will delete all files off your GoGear)
1) Backup all files on the GoGear
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new.

SOURCE: Nextar MA 166 MP3 Won't Charge

You have to install the software for the mp3 player BEFORE connecting the mp3 player to the computer, or else Windows XP will override the native drivers. That particular Nextar is not compatible with Windows Vista, so you may have a problem if you have a newer computer.

SOURCE: mp3 will not connect with my computer

I'm pretty sure I fixed a similar problem. Go to your device manager on your PC and uninstall the walkman driver. After this is complete just plug the walkman back into you Pc and the plug and play will download the driver again. This worked for me. My operating system is Windows vista.

SOURCE: my mp3 doesnt connect into my usb it just disconnects and starts to charge can you help me

I assume from your description that either you are running a version of Windows older than XP/2000 or you need a special driver. Here is a link for the driver(s) you will need. Just enter your model number and select your version of Windows. Download and run the file and you should be up and running shortly.

SOURCE: Eclipse MP3 Player- Wont charge. I plug it in and

People on other posts said to get a wall charger and that'll work. We looked for one, but couldn't find one. We ended up using a usb camera upload cord that had the same connector. It charged just fine after that. We have a 180 Eclipse mp3 player...I'm guessing the cord connectors are pretty universal.

I am trying to charge my Garmin GPS on my computer, but it only shows me a plugin at the bottom what is wrong?


That's normal. The connection is meant for putting new software into the Garmin. It probably charges at the same time, but there's no indication of the state of charge.

My camera will notdownload to my laptop anymore


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

I plug into the computer and i also tried to charge it with my ihome. both times i unplugged it, it just shut off and i couldnt turn it back on without plugging it back into the comeputer! Please help.


Seems to be a charging/discharging issue for the battery. Try using the wall adapter only for charging and wait for it to fully charge before connecting to the computer or any other devices.

Why won't my computer charge


the battery might be going bad on it, try taking the battery out and running the computer just off of the plug. that series of HP has overheating issues and are prone to randomly shutting down. if you have a bad battery, it can overstress the powersupply trying to charge a bad battery. Also, the solder joints tend to go bad on the motherboard where the power jack is connected to it, so try holding your power wire at a bit of an angle while turning it on and see if that does the trick (the sideways force can temporarily connect those broken joints.. There was also a class action settlement on these computers i believe, so google class action zd7000 and see if you qualify. The power plug jack was part of this, so you might get it fixed free of charge.

I had a similar problem. My Sansa c250 would charge, when plugged into the computer. It would read that it was writing but the computer did not recognized that the Sansa c250 was connected. I switched to a different USB port and got the same results. I then realized that the two ports I was using were 1.0 port and idmedeatly when inserted in the 2.0 port it began charging and the computer recongized the Sansa c250. I know this won't solve every charging problem one may have. Changing the battery would be easier in some cases. Especially if they were sold like the AA or AAA.

The i pod is not showing that it is charging


Since it has been sitting for so long, try doing this: Connect the ipod to your computer and let it sit for about fifteen minutes. Then it should show up in your computer and under itunes. Usually, if your ipod dies completely, when you try to charge it using a wall or car charger, it will do that, just flashing the apple logo and going back off. Leaving it plugged up to the computer will allow the battery to charge just enough so that it can sync with itunes. While it is plugged into the computer and charging, it should say something like, battery very low, charging. It should work after letting it sit plugged up to the computer.

Usually, if your ipod dies completely, when you try to charge it using a wall or car charger, it will do that, just flashing the apple logo and going back off. Leaving it plugged up to the computer will allow the battery to charge normally, just enough so that it can come on and sync with itunes. While it is plugged into the computer and charging, it should say something like, battery very low, wait few minutes, charging. It should work after letting it sit plugged up to the computer.

MP3 will not stop charging


It could be the usb cable,so shop around for another usb cable for it, if that doesn't work take it (The mp3 player) back to best buy and tell/show them what happened.

Audiophase KZ111 MP3 players won't charge


One thing that I have found that works is that you slide the switch to the "ON" position, but don't press play to turn it on all the way. Do this BEFORE plugging it into your computer. I have had the mp3 player fro a year or two and I have charged it about 15-20 times.
