Re: frozen

Battery is too low for player to charge. There is a firmware fix for this at

Fix cannot be applied until player is working again.

If you know someone who has the same player, put their battery in your unit to power up and apply firmware update to fix problem. Then swap batteries back again

Another way to get the player working is to remove the side panel to disconnect battery. Plug in the mains charger and reconnect the battery. You may need to do this several times before the player springs into life.
If this doesn't work try disconnecting the charger and battery alternately and wait 5 secs between attempts.

My Eclipse MP3 180 is frozen and it just won't evn turn on anymore. It used to be frozen on the Blue logo screen until I just let the battery die. Now even when I charge it for like 15 mins it won't turn...

Ensure to charge the unit completely before turning it back on. If you have waited a few hours before using it and the problem persist, then your battery is bad.

If the light around the spinning wheel is blue and the screen is black, then Hold the on/off button up for about 10-20 seconds and it should turn off. then you can just turn it on again. I fit doesn't work, then just wait for the battery to die and charge it back up.

Creative Zen Micro (6gb) is frozen

Take your battery out of the back, turn it back on and let it reboot.

Frozen on the loading screen

press the menu button on the bottommostlft side,,,and also anyone of the other buttons (say forward button) for quite sometime around 2 minutes (probably less than that)............

then the blue light would be turned off and sansa starts rocking again..


or as you thought u can let the sansa discharge all its power.

dont open at any cost ,because if its found opened then warranty may be cancelled.
