Sorry to say but they are not with the features with the Ipod and becuase of that there's no option to reset this device if there's no power on it, this player is already dead.....

Sansa clip went dead

Slide the power button on your SanDisk Sansa MP3 player up.

  • 2 Hold the power button on your Sansa in the up position for about 15 seconds. This action serves as a powering down of the Sansa device.
  • 3 Wait for your Sansa MP3 player to restart and let go of the power button. Actions taken during your last operation since powering down normally have been deleted and your player is now reset.

    Why wont my mp3 player turn on even when i charge it?

    It most likely is dead. This sometimes happens to old mp3 players. It happened to my iPod Shuffle and it wouldn't charge and therefore wouldn't turn on. You are probably going to just have to get a new one. Sorry :(

    Sansa plugged into Ipod music player - won't work now

    Yep - it's a sad thing. iPod docks have ruined many a good mp3 player. Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from Sandisk's website (make sure the Sansa is not plugged into the computer yet). Once the Recovery Tool is downloaded, connect the Sansa to the computer while holding in the REC button and continue to hold it even after th player is plugged in. It should go into Recovery Mode in 10-15 seconds or so.

    Sansa won't turn on after using an ipod "road trip" fm transmitter

    Kinda the same thing happened to me. I tried to plug my sansa into my friends iHome and it blew out one of his speakers and screwed up my sansa, which was an e270.

    Dead Player

    Hmmm...the MP3 parts shouldn't have lined up with the iPod dock. Check that area for damage in case your son accidentally forced it. Otherwise, hold the power button for 15 seconds. That can occasionally jump-start my player, and it turns the player off even if it is frozen.

    Ipod charger

    1 question: how did you do that? i thought the Ipod and the sansa have different adapter types? anyway, i'd suggest getting a new battery. and it's probably because the sansa and ipod use don't use the same amount of energy (volts, etc.) that this happened.
