Probably just need to reset it. Press and hold the power button for 20-30 secs. (if you have your earphones in, you can hear a very faint click when it resets). Release and see if it will start up normally.
Normally from a completely depleted battery state, it will take 3-4 hours to fully charge, but unless you slept an awfully long time, it shouldn't run down overnight. You should get 10-13 hours use depending on the type of files you're listening to.

Wow, thank you. That just worked.
I was so mad today when I went to ride and it wouldn't turn on at all.
Thought I'd check the internet and see what they said.
Thanks again for the help.

Thank you all for "Resetting" ! But I think the main problem here is why is that happening? Like some others said, there was no physical damage to the player. It's just been 1 week since I got my player and this is annoying.
I reset my player for this time. What about the frequency? How many times should I ve to reset this player in a week?
There must be an explanation for this problem and I'm obsessed with finding it.
I'm going to share the problem. Be back Soon

It can be corrupted and/or bad files. Sometimes a file becomes corrupted when it's transfered to the player. Or the player is just acting up for no apparent reason.

Okay so ive had my mp3 for a few years now and it decided to stop working but not exactly. The only time it turns on is when i plug it up to the usb wire on my computer, but once i remove the wire it wont turn on at all. So how will i be able to reset if it wont turn on?

Try deleting all the songs on your player(make sure you have copies of them on your pc first). Give it a long charge, or even better, try charging it with a cell phone charger or other AC usb charger. See if the player will turn on when empty. If not, then either the battery wire detached(did you drop the player recently?) or the battery is worn out(has battery life been very short lately?).

OMG! I was so scared. My player would not turn. I came to this website and found it very helpful.
Holding down the turn on button for 20-30 secs, did the trick. For a moment there I was really depressed....lol
