Above is the link for an AGPTEK player I purchased about four years ago.
It has performed flawlessly until the other day when it wouldn\'t come
on at all. On this model, the way to reset is to press and hold the
play/ pause button for 30 seconds, but does not work. It has USB port
along the side for hooking up to the PC. Tried that and nothing, drive
doesn\'t show nor anything about being recognized by USB. Trouble is
that I have a lot of songs on it and before I trash it and start with a
new one, I wondered if there was any way to at least salvage the songs?
I did disassemble it. There is a 3.7V battery the same size as the LCD
display. I disconnected the battery, then tried to hook to the PC,
still nothing. Then, I connected a fresh 3.7V battery and still no go.
Unfortunately, upon disassembly, the ribbon cable to the display is so
fragile that I broke it so even if I got it going again, it would be to
only salvage the songs. Thanks in advance for any help. Just want to
get its drive recognized by the PC if possible.

OK I think pending any other better suggestions you\'ve only got two DIY
things left to try, cold and hot. Its never going to work properly again
anyway (sounds like flash memory gone). So just in case its only a
temperature stressed connection...
Go cold first, you already have the battery out, so put in fridge for an
hour or two, connect to PC while cold and see.
If no joy go hot, heat oven to 80 C, one hour, try, if no joy try 110
C. You just might get lucky! After that - bin! C+

Check any moving parts - switches and connector. Leave battery in,
when trying to read.

My sympathies, but don\'t use anything on flash for permanent storage.
