SanDisk, 2 GB Sansa mp3 player won't charge

I plugged it into my puter with the cord that came with it, does not charge that way. it did charge when plugged into my son's stereo--once, but now is completely dead----how do I fix it? what do I do? I plug my Sandisk Sansa 4GB mp3 player into the computer with the cord that came with it, and it wouldn't charge. I once plugged it in on a wall charger, and it charged once. Now it is completely dead and it won't charge on either one of the two.

    I just got this and I can't get it to charge at all. I wonder if it has something to do with my USB ports as I've had similiar problems with other devices. So is there a power setup I need to do for my USB? I"m running WinXP

You MAY have a power glich. In which case, hold the power/menu botton down for 20 seconds or more, then connect it to the computer.It's best if you use a USB input that's NOT part of a Multi-USB base, as those DO cause power gliches.

If you have an outlet charger (like for a cellphone) that connects to your MP3, use it. It works for mine. My sansa clip will NOT charge when connected to my computer, but it will when its connected to an outlet (although veeery slowly).

I just found out (after changing to a new harddrive) that my Sansa won't charge on the new OS load, I assume because I've not loaded the software\drivers. I re-installed old harddrives (still fully functional) and the unit charged again. Put the new drive back in, unit will not charge.

Also cannot access drive without software. That's stupid. I'd not buy one of these ever again.

Plug it into your computer via the usb cord and bring up the players contents on My Computer>Player and delete the contents within the folders you want, most likely the Music Folder.

Problems with charging my mp3 player!


Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

SanDisk, 2 GB Sansa mp3 player won't charge


I was having the same problem with my Sansa e250. My wife has the e200, and we didn't have any problems with that. I saw that someone on here suggested to lock the mp3 player with the tiny metal switch on top, so I did, and the battery charging icon on the bottom of the screen came on and stayed on, and the mp3 player worked. thanks!
Because of this I would suggest checking to see if it's locked or unlocked and then change it to charge it.

Sansa c250 not working at all!


2 Suggestions: 1) It may be that the battery isnt charged, let the unit charge fully 2) If that doesnt work, its probably time to send the unit back to sandisk
