First, try a soft reset. Do this by pressing the center button and the up volume button simultaneously and try turning it on. If that does not work for you, you will need to get a micro sd card (it can be a dummy) and insert it into the slot on the side of the mp3 player. If you do not have one, you can use one of the round edges of a paper clip (be careful) to get it to come on. When you put either in, it should come on automatically, but if not, just press the power button. This should work.

My sandisk sansa wont charge or turn on after plugging in to charge


Does the computer recognize it at all? These mp3 players have a problem with the power button which you push up to turn on,,,, the switch some times become dislogged and require the consumer to either open it or replace it... you can try to reset the device by holding the power button in on position for 10-20 seconds

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted. http://sandisk.com/assets/file/downloads/firmware/e200fw01.00.12.exe You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool. - Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds) - slide the hold switch into "hold" position. - Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer. Then run the recovery tool. Again, select format when prompted. Best of Luck.
