Sansa View shuts off without warning

My Sansa View 8GB has started shutting down automatically after only an hour of play, even with a full battery. I thought at first it had something to do with the cold weather, but it occurs indoors as well. Updating the firmware appears to cut down on the number of automatic shutdowns, but does not eliminate the problem.

Additionally, it is prone to lockups.

I've had the same problem but it wasn't with the battery, when it kept shutting itself down it was due to static electricty. Every time i took of my jacket and had my headphones on, I would hear a small click and then my sansa woud be turned off. I just kept it away from things that might cause some sort of electircal interference. I'm also not sure what kind of screen apperas on this lockup or shutdown but the screen goes black for me while the blue ring stays lit, and everything is discfunctional. I have to reset it each time.

I am sorry to hear that..it sounds like your battery is defective..Unfortunately the only way you can get the problem fix is to contact sandisk so they can replace the battery for you...There isnt any shop out there that will be able to replace the battery for you..I hope that helps.
Please rate accordingly
Thank you

My sansa wouldn't recharge - thought the battery was dead - replaced it - it worked for a couple of hours, then was dead again and wouldn't take a charge. Think it's fixable?


slide the switch in the on position and hold for 20 seconds , release and then flick the switch to on position and it should start.
This will happen anytime the battery runs down.

I have a Sansa View 8gb and the battery would die like within like 3-5 hours but when I connect it to my computer and go to properties I found that it was charged 84% what should I do about it?


What you need to do is let your player die. Then after it is dead keep turning it off and turning it on till it stops responding. This will run the player out of all battery charge. Then you will keep turning it on so that you can deplete the battery charge that your player sets up as a backup power. Then you need to plug it into your computer and let it charge all night. This will reset the player battery memory so that you can have full charge again. If this does not work your battery might be going out and you should look into either replacing it or investing into another mp3 player.

Archos 605 shut down


Does it have power? If the battery is drained, it will NOT boot straight up when you plug it into your pc or docking station.
You need to plug it in for a good hour before trying to boot it up.
Once you've managed to boot it up, give it a full reboot by pushing a pin in the tiny hole at the bottom.

SanDisk Sansa View Slim 8gb Screen Cracked


I broke the screen on my e200 series 6gb so I asked Sansa tech support about it and I was told that Sansa does not own any repair or support facilities whatsover. This means that you really can't get it fixed without either buying a new one or getting it replaced altogther.
