Question about SanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player

1 Answer

When I fully charge my clip and then store it for 2-3 days without even using it, when I turn it on again to use it, the battery is nearly dead even thought I never played any songs. I even "Lock" the unit in the off position.

    I can charge it fully with it unlocked and then lock it after it is completely charged to protect it from accidental activation, and even then it will lose the charge after two or three days.

    Oh 2-3 days - that is very normal, whether you are using it or not. I know it sounds funny, but your player is not defective. You can try an iPod Nano under the same circumstances and you will find that it will do exactly the same thing. These newer mp3 players never really turn off - they just go into power saver mode, and will drain in about 2-3 days.

My mp3 goes dead about once a week even though it


How long have you had it and how long has it been doing this?
What sort of batteries does it take?
Sounds like a battery connection fault, or a faulty battery to me.
Does it work from a mains connection (power supply)?
Do you mean that by leaving it sitting idle for 3 days after the fault appeared, it suddenly starts to work again? Without the charger connected? Sounds like a definite connection problem. Do you have a spare battery you can try in it? That woud be the most likely thing you can do for it. If that doesn't fix it, it will have a fault that a technician will have to repair. Sorry, can't help more than that.

Sansa Clip Won't take a charge...


Are you sure the cable you are using provides both data and power to the device? Some cables are data only and will not charge the device despite appearing so.

Has it held a charge before? If this is a new device and has not yet ran down then charged fully again yet, then I would return it.

Sansa Clip not holding charge


Locking the player will not allow the player to charge properly, no matter how long you have it plugged in.

Sansa 1g clip wont turn on.


did you try holding the power button on for ten seconds (the reset) after trying to charge it again? does it even power up when you plug it into the usb. if it powers on when connected to the usb and then shuts off immediately when you take it off the usb (rather than "refreshing database") then your battery is either 1)disconnected inside 2)dead or there may be issues with power management. Same thing happened to me (disconnected) but I soldered the loose connection and it only worked for two days, even checking the connections again. Now I don't know what's going on. It's more likely the battery has reached the end of its life.

Samsung YP K3 only lasts for 2 hours


1. totally discharge the battery so it wont come on.

2. Charge the battery fully

3. Reset the player

Now check how long the battery lasts. If it is still 2 hours there is a problem with the battey and you will need to return the player.
