    Old MP3 player won’t charge

    Old MP3 player won’t charge 11th Jul 18 at 8:30 PM
    I have an ancient Creative Zen Vision M, MP3 player

    The battery in doesn’t hold its charge very long, approx 1 hour after a full nights charge so I bought a new battery off eBay.

    The new battery won’t charge at all though. When I connect the charging cable it says the battery is fully charged but as soon as I disconnected the battery warning light comes in and says it needs charging.

    Any ideas how I might solve this?

    Ordered a new battery from an alternate source to try and see if the battery’s defective but is there anything else I could try?
