Surprisingly the solution was quite simple after I stopped panicking. The Sansa Updater Setup Maintenance Program, I don't know where I got it from, probably off the web site for Sansa. I clicked it, followed themessage to delete current files and update new material. It told me to plug in my "dead" Sansa Clip (which was full of audio books I did not want to loose) and like magic it came to life. I sure hope this information helps someone. I have the silver 4g SanDisk and LOVE it

Make sure it is the right thing.
I tried to use an extension cable for
mine and It won't work with it.
I don't understand it!

No ext fine, use ext no fine.

It could be the wrong cable/connector.

Wondering how long it takes to charge the Sansa Clip MP3?


I have had the same problem. It seems the radio never turns off and keeps drawing power. Solution: before charging, go to a song, start it playing, then pause it, then turn off the sanza clip. Plug it in and it should charge up fine.

My sandisk sansa 2g wont turn on with out being plugged in at tha computer n seems to be fine when its plugged in but when its unplugged it wont work! the battery is on a full battery but wont turn on at...


The battery may show "full' but still not hold a charge, so that when you unplug it from your computer, it goes dead. I assume you hold down the power button for several seconds and it still doesn't power up? Most likely, you battery is defective.

Won't start--No Sandisk display.


Download and install the firmware updater.
If that doesn't resolve, your player may really have a hardware issue. The battery is not replaceable by the consumer. My reccomendation is to exchange it with the store. If that fails, redeem your warranty through Sandisk (hope you saved your receipt).

Was fine now dead


Hello jessisme,

What you describe sounds like either a battery problem or a hardware failure. I would recommend trying to charge the unit following the normal charging procedure listed in the manual.

If the unit will not turn on at all after charging then most likely the battery has failed or the or unit has some other hardware problem that will require service. If this is the case, I'd recommend contacting the manufacturer via their website at http://www.sandisk.com/techsupport for additional support.

Best regards,
Ken

Battery


I called sandisk. You have to have service pack 2 on your windows XP and you have to have Windows Media Player version 10 or 11. One one of my laptops I had version 9 and it wouldn't work, I changed laptops and it works just fine.

Player will not turn on


I had the same exact problem too. Hold the botton down for at least thirty seconds. After press the botton as if you were turning it on. If it does it worl try it a couple of times. That's to me too and I was upset. I hope this helps.

My Sansa E260's screen is white and it won't turn off


After leaving it on all night and running the battery down I plugged it back in, it charged and everything is working fine. The morale of this story is, don't unplug it from the computer while it is in use.
