Question about SanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player
I bought a Sansa 8GB mp3 player last year. It worked great and had a long battery life. However, I left it in my bookbag for a few months without using it. I know it was turned off - it has an automatic off anyhow if you aren't using it. The problem is that now it isn't holding a charge very well. Do you think the battery went bad from not being used? If so, can I replace the battery? (I am not amused because I haven't used it that much yet and you have to charge it by hooking it up to the computer). I don't want to tear it apart if I can't replace the battery anyhow.
Let me put it this way - you are not supposed to replace your battery - it will void your warranty. Call sansa and find out if you can get an in-warranty replacement. If you want to be a DIY daredevil, you can twist the clip until the area behind the clip pops out - read the battery specs and order a battery online. But really, I would get an in-warrnty replacement or buy a new one - the price has dropped from 60-70 last year to about $25-30 this year.
