    I have the same problem. The battery is getting hot. It seems like there is a short somewhere.

All of these sound like hardware problem which will require replacing the player. Some problems with mp3 players are hardware-related. The problem with hardware issues is that they cannot generally be fixed. Examples of common hardware issues are screen issues (white lines, green lines, no/bad display), battery/power supply issues, and headphone jack issues. The reason they can’t be fixed is because the manufacturers will not sell you the parts. There are several reasons they do not sell you the parts – 1)it is not cost-effective to do so; 2) they do not want people copying their designs; 3) you can injure yourself trying to fix such parts; 3) you generally have to be an electrician or engineer to be able to fix them; 4)you void your warranty performing such operations. Many, many people ask about fixing cracked screens. There are videos on YouTube that show you how to do so on some players. The problem with replacing a screen is two-fold: 1) the manufacturer does not generally sell you the screen – you would have to buy a broken unit to get a screen; 2) it is not a simple matter in most cases of replacing a screen – the LCD controller in the mp3 player’s circuitry is also usually bad – and few people are capable of fixing a broken circuit. Headphone jack issues generally cannot be performed for the same reasons – it is not a simple matter of replacing a headphone jack (which the manufacturer won’t sell you), since the headphone jack controller on the circuit is usually the source of the problem. Some batteries can be replaced, and other cannot – you user’s manual will tell you if your battery is replaceable or not. For replaceable-battery players, you can buy the battery from the manufacturer. For any who want to ignore my good advice, here is a YouTube link that examines the guts of a Sansa mp3 player:

Sansa clip won't charge fully

If you have a phone charger with the same connector, plug in you Clip and leave it overnight. This will fully charge the battery. There is not enough power from the USB port.

I pod problems

I think your battery may be going bad or you need to purchase a wall charger to fully charge your battery. Charging your iPod on your computer works fine for a while, but as the battery gets older, it needs more charging and often it doesn't get enough from the computer. Try a wall charger first. Charge it all the way up until it stops charging. If it still shows a low battery you need to have a new battery. There are a lot of places that can do it. Hope that helps.
