Sansa SanDisk c150 won't turn on!

My Sansa has always worked decently. This morning I was listening to the radio, and then turned the player off for about 20 minutes. When I went to turn it on, it just would not turn on. I even put a new battery in it, but no sign of ANY activity. It is really weird. I have been trying every few hours to see if it will turn on or show any activity and it has not. Any suggestions?

Re: Sansa SanDisk c150 won't turn on!

My Sansa also failed to turn on. But what happened to me was that I unplugged the USB while it's connecting. After that I cannot sync with my computer anymore, so I tried turning it off and on couple times and at the end the whole thing won't turn on anymore. I talked to the SanDisk tech. You can try what he told me: take out the battery; press and hold the power button for 45 sec (this will drain the power in the capacitor...they call it "soft reset"); then put the battery back in and try to turn on the mp3 player. That didn't work for me. I just bought this a month ago so i guess because of the warranty, they will send me a brand new one. I hope this help.

MY Sandisk c150 keeps blinking when turned on.

You have probably corrupted it. Plug it back into the computer- reformat if you must and do it properly as you know you should. You may wind up buying another
