My mp4 player only turns on when connected to USB or power

Postby LOLUMAD » Tue Jul 10, 2007 6:18 pm

I have a mp4 player that looks like http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0120802647

Well at first I could use it without connected and the battery seemed fine, but now the mp4 player only turns on when it's connected to computer via USB or power supply. What should I do? Is the batter dead? How can I fix this please help.

Try to charge it out of player, using another power suply. If it works, charger circuit of player is bad.

If battery dont work after that, battery is bad. Replace it.

You need open the player and use a soldering iron to remove the battery. If you dont have the skill to it, ask to a friend.

You can buy the replacement battery through *bay, but make sure the battery included in your player is defective and the charging circuit works.

If you have money to buy a mp4 player, you should have money to fix it.

If you want to fix it yourself, you have to have a soldering iron, testers and eletronic knowhow. If you dont have any of them, take it to a fixing company.

listen what schopf said - go to service..
maybe is battery just disconnect from main board bacause vibrations or else..
don't buy battery thru net because they maybe won't pass in your player... even on picture look like your.. maybe will new one be few mm to big and will not fit in.. ¤

My MP4 player does not hold a charge...it used to.I don't know what happened.I have charged over night,I have charged it for shorter periods nothing works.I used to be able to listen to it for a couple of hours at least and now I am lucky if it gets thru a song before the hourglass comes on and shuts off.ARRGGH!!It's very frustrating.It sounds great when it's working,it just does not hold a charge.If it is plugged in with charger and turned on it plays fine. Although when charging the green light seems to come on with red light and then the green light turns off right away.When connected to Computer it works fine.I can download music ,videos and pics no problem.It just won't let me listen to my music when I am out and about.This is when I would like to have it the most.Please somebody help me! I am wondering if it is a problem with the battery or the charger...or is it something else? It is 1 GB MP4 Player.It is supposed to have a samsung battery(not sure which one).I have not opened it up to find out.It is from Wilson Co. Ltd. Firmware is B806G2V3.0 9 (Dated 12\14\06)the core version is 9.0.50 (Dated 11\2\06) If anyone knows anything about this please let me know.Also...just curious,if it is the battery or the charger can it be replaced? If so...where? :? Thank You
