I know it sounds simple and you didn't say what if anything you have tried but a battery pull (while the phone is on) is chicken soup for the blackberry.

"Media can't be played while alert is active" Solution!
I finally found what was the problem; you are getting this message because you left your camara on, either because you were watching your pics or trying to get a picture and didn't close it!
So, go back to you camara and close the application and then try to listen to your media! it should work! it worked for me!

I second the camera idea! Even if you haven't used the camera, open it and turn it off.
I was using the BB media player while my timer was set as I baked some pies. After the timer went off, I kept getting the "cannot play media while alert is active". Even after closing the clock app, it wouldn't play. My camera wasn't open, but I tried it anyway.
I opened my camera and then closed it again. And then voila!

This is crazy. First thing this morning I go to play my music and got this message. My phone resets every night; I hadn't opened anything else. Sure enough...opened the camera and closed it and things work fine again. WTF. hope this isn't a reoccurring thing.

I think this problem is caused by using BlackBerry Messenger with the Barcode Scanner feature. I had the same problem too, and I recall that I used the barcode scanner to install new apps but because the AppWorld is not supported in my country, an error appeared and I had to cancelled the installation. Perhaps this caused that issue.
Either turn on and off the camera or reboot the phone would work.

how can that happen with the camera on??? don't get it.
and, when I first got my storm 2 9550, I had this problem after a few days I got the new phone, everytime I had this problem, I had to pulled the battery off to fix it, and what was sucks was that I missed a few important calls, and almost got fired by that, and I had call the verizon tech support, and they didn't even know what the problem was, and after that I had to play some music to check if the phone was fine in every few hours every day, after a few months I bought a iphone, and threw the trash phone away. I never thought that was the camera on problem, and I even tried this out with my friend who has a 9550, but it is impossible to have the camera on when that happens, I can't make that problem happens.
