My son's Sandisk Sansa Clip MP3 2 gb is not working properly. The volume button is stuck on low and now he cannot hear the volume which makes the MP3 useless. He got it back in April 2008. Please please help. If it cannot be fixed I'm out money.

Found this in one of the other posted problems, and it worked for me.

My 8Gb Clip did the same after a firmware update. Apparently it's due to new EU regs about MP3player volume limiting. To fix select 'reset all' (note any settings you want to re-set later), after reset, select your language and then set region to 'Rest of World'. Sorted!
I'm having the same problem after I dropped it. I can feel the click when I press the down button, but there is no click when I press the up button. I have enclosed a link to the sandisk forums which discuss the issue and a possible solution (but it involves opening up the device and doing some soldering). The original post was removed so I had to use Google's cached version.
Use the volume + (somtimes you can use REC instead) method to force the computer to recognize the device. Sometimes requires a restart of computer after your initial attempt.
Substitute "volume +" for "REC" if need be: Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off,hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
