Player won't power on no matter what

So, I've tried all the suggestions that the site gives for low power issues. I've unplugged it from the TV and then back in again, plugged it into a power strip, a power bank, and even the wall, and my device still won't power on again. It just continues giving insufficient power lights. I have no idea what I should do now, none of what I've done has worked.

Re: Player won't power on no matter what

I have a couple of devices that regularly have the low power problem.  I don't think there's a fix.  If it's no longer under warranty then you're pretty much on your own.  I don't know what happens to these devices after a couple of years, but every one of them works if I connect it to a quality bench supply.  All I can suggest is to try different USB power adapters and different USB cables.  For me, I can sometimes get them to work after unplugging the power and reconnecting it several times or swapping one for another.  Sometime I'll do some more experimenting to see if I can get to the bottom of why or how they fail.  I prefer the devices that don't use a USB power adapter.  I haven't had one of them suffer from the problem (knock on wood).
