Re: help needed

Here is a fix I got from Sandisk support: Let's try this: take the battery out of the player and wait for a full 5 minutes. While the battery is out, please hold the power-on button for 10 seconds. After that, connect it to your computer (without the battery). Does it work when it's connected to the computer? Regardless of that result, disconnect it from the computer, then put a brand new alkaline battery back in, and see if it will turn on. Now, another thing I found that worked once, was to remove the battery, hold the power button for 5 seconds, then replace battery. The unit powered up after that.

Screen froze on a song

I have the exact mp3 player and this has happened to me many times. Try holding the power button for a minute or two and if that doesn't work you will need to take the screws off of the back cover. In there the battery will be right on top. Pull it out for a few seconds and put it back in. That will fix your problem.

My display doesnt work

My son had the same problem. I think he let it get too hot, left it setting in the sun too long. We tried everything. Unfortunately, he had to reformat, and lost everything. But he had all his date backed up on an external harddrive. Sorry....

Try to reset your device by holding the power button down for 15-20 seconds or until it resets....If that doesnt help you get the latest firmware upgrade for your device...that should solve the problems you are having...
