This happened to me today, which was what brought me here. Also, when I plugged it in to recharge, my computer didn't even recognize it. The SanDisk troubleshooting said to hold up a power switch, which I didn't have, for 20 seconds. So I held the power button down for 20 seconds. (Much longer than the usual amount of time required to turn on). At first I thought it didn't do anything, but then when I pressed the power button again briefly, my SansaClip woke up, was recognized by my computer again, and in every way behaved normally.

I had the same problem and sent an email to Sony. Here's the answer (it worked) :
Go to page 53 of Operating Instructions Manual and reset the player as indicated.
If you do not have the manual, here's what to do : Press Power On button. Power On light will come up. Now, Looking at front panel you have (at right side) 5 switches : Play, Pause, Stop, Rewind, and Fast Forward. Stop is the center switch.
Now, with Power On light on (it lasts only about 30 seconds), HOLD DOWN the STOP button and PRESS POWER ON button (the power on light has to be ON). This will reset the player. It worked with mine one.

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in
the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while
