Fix for eMatic MP3 Players (EM Series) Tuesday 12/28/10

For Chistmas I got an eMatic EM102VIDB MP3 player. When I plugged it in to my computer, it crashed, and then refused to activate, even if I used the reset button.

The solution, not guaranteed to work, is to plug it into another computer.  With any luck, it will re-activate.  Do not push any buttons for several minutes. It needs some time to charge.  After a while, you can try to plug it into your own computer.  If it fails again, I’m afraid I can’t help you further, for it worked for me.

Good luck!

Rather unrelated note:  The video player only plays MTV video files, a format so obscure even VLC can’t play it.  Luckily, the package comes with a conversion program on CD.

I’ve found a comprehensive site for MP4 Players at http://mympxplayer.org/. It has firmware, and other methods of fixing MP4 players. Good luck!

Thank you for the offer, but the e-Matic player is working just fine. I had to edit the comment because I’m sure you don’t want your phone number available online.

Thanks again!

Yeah, but that only works for THOSE eMatic MP3 players. Mine is the eMatic EM164VIDP and it’s a 4GB. The problem I have is the reset button won’t work, and I need to be able to do that, like NOW!!! I can’t find anything that helps, sooo if you have ANY advice or solutions, let me know. Either email me at hotblondie224@gmail.com, or reply to my comment. Thank you.

I’m sorry, I don’t have that model. However, there is a forum where you could ask for help: http://mympx.org/forum/

Actually, I discovered an easier solution a few weeks ago: Use the reset button. Gee, I feel kinda dumb now.
