I have a similar problem, as well. How can the batteries go out if the screen is blank and there is no indication the player is on?

alick has been making lots of suggestions about firmware recovery here, but as yet no one has responded to say if it worked or not. maybe you should try it and give some feedback?

Like I said, I tried every solution I could find.
Tried number 1. What the hell is #2 supposed to mean? As for #3, how am I supposed to update firmware if the player is dead, and doesn't come up as coonected via the USB port?

if it is still under warranty, then return it to your supplier, or RMA it through MSI

2.After firmware installing will show some files, please cover driver installing files(C:\Program Files\MSI\MS-5515)

3.Please plug your mega player 515 in your PC

Yes, it is still under warranty, i bought it less than 3 weeks ago. I might just have to send it back:(
I have tried everything, even pressing the play key while it is plugged in. I also tried holding the play key for a longer period of time. The player still does not respond or is recognized by the computer.
If any of you have more suggestiong, please help.
Anything but sending it back for repare under warranty:p
Thanks

have you tried removing the battery and connecting it to your PC?


if it is three weeks old and you still have the receipt, you should be able to take it back where you purchased it from for a replacement / refund

The battery is built-in and not removable, I'm afraid...
I guess I will have to find the receipt and wait around for weeks:(

OMG. I FIXED IT. BY ACCIDENT.
1. Hold down the power button and keep doing so
2. Plug it into your computer via the USB cable (while holding the power button)
3. The computer should recognize the player and start installing drivers called "mp3 player recovery" or something like that (you may need to  download drivers via windows update)
4. Once the installation of the recovery drivers is complete, run the Firmware update software that came with the MP3 player and update the firmware normally...

ALL DONE! FINALLY!
;)

You may want to change the subject so it is a bit more informative. Something like "Bad Flash Mega 515 - Solved".

Have Fun
