Mp3 Player freaking out

  willyv 11:06 14 Sep 2007

Hi all,
My old mp3 player has started switching itself off when i plug it into a usb port. It plays ok otherwise.
Its only a cheapy but would be handy if it could be fixed. Any ideas?

Some units have a reset switch normally requiring the use of a pin or the point of a pen to activate the reset.

A model number might elicit more suggestions.

you should plug it in with it in the switched off mode. Once plugged in switch it on.

There's no model number on it (just s/n), its just one of those generic milky way sized players with a small rectangular screen. when its plugged in to the the usb it switches off and tries to start up (by displaying 'starting...') then switches off and the process repeats.
