I don't know that this will solve your particular problem but I just answered another similar Coby issue less than an hour ago, so I'm going to copy my recommendation here.

It sounds like the Coby operating system is corrupted.

I'm going to recommend you try the following procedure with one catch; I'm assuming you can turn the unit on and at least get a menu. If not this procedure isn't going to work.

NOTE: The following procedure will erase everything on your Coby so be aware!

Essentially, we're going to reformat the unit using Coby's own format routine.

1. Power Unit On
2. Scroll through your main menu going to your right. From "Music" ---> to "Settings"
3. Under "Settings" you will have another menu. Look at the bottom choice called "Sys Tools"
4. Select "Sys Tools" and you will have a series of options, choose the second option "Format"
5. Select "Format" and follow the prompts
6. Wait for the routine to complete
7. Power unit down
8. Power unit back up and reconnect to PC
9. Use Windows Explorer or My Computer to see if the unit is recognized, and it should be at this point.
10. You should be set

For some reason, the operating system for the Coby gets corrupted and this is the only way I know to fix it short of sending the unit in for repair, which isn't an option really. (Cheaper to buy a new one)

Hope this helps you or anyone else that has unexplainable problems connecting to the Coby MP-610 / MP-620.

    Keep in mind that this WILL ERASE everything that you had stored on your Coby, but it really doesn't do you any good if you can't use the player.

The best thing to do wuld be to first, back up all of the stuff on your ipod, and the restore it back to factory setting through itunes. After that, you can put all of your files back on the ipod and it should function normally.

Whenever I have a phone or an MP3 player that hangs like you have described, I update the firmware and this fixes the problem. You would not believe how common this problem is.

Unfortunately, there is no firmware available for your model at

There is a RESET button you can push and hold with a paperclip on the bottom of the unit, next to the miniSD card slot, so go ahead and try that - it may get its attention back.

If you have an sd card in there, I recommend taking it out.

Also, I have seen some players (like the sansa fuze) literally take hours to process new mp3 and video files when restarted once they are loaded.

If waiting for hours and the reset button do not fix the unit, please contact coby customer support at 1-800-727-3592 or [email protected]

I hope that helps.

My Coby MP605-2G is not turning on

I cant on my COBY MP-C7085

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.

Coby MP-C582 Will not turn on

These players are notorious for battery problems. Charge it all night and you just might get 30 minutes of use out of it before the battery dies. Make sure the slider switch next to the power button on top isn't in the "lock" position as the unit will not power up if it is. I recommend getting a 12 volt car charging plug for it and getting real aquainted with the tiny reset button on the battery side of it. You can get a plug for about $6 that will charge it through the usb cable that came with the player.
