    My Sandisk Sansa Clip 2GB just had this exact same problem. I have no idea why. But I just used your tip to hold it "on" for 10 sec's and it worked! Turned on immediately!

Have you tried resetting it? You can reset it by sliding the power switch to the ON position for 10 seconds and then letting go.

If that does not work, your battery or a circuit could be fried, and it might be time for a replacement.

Unit wont turn on??? was charging unit overnight,now wont turn on tried holding all buttons for 15,30 seconds


It sounds like it's time for a new battery. Here is your battery:

If replacing the battery doesn't get this player up and running, you will need to contact Sandisk for repair or replacement of your player.

My sansa wont turn on, I took out battery to reset and blue ring


Try resetting your firmware via Sandisk's support site. If it still doesn't work, your sansa's mainboard might be busted. The cost of replacing it will be more than a refurbished one (under $40 online).

My sansa turns on then off


Do a firmware upgrade, but it sounds like the hardware is probably faulty. The firmware upgrade is available from Sandisks' website. Unfortunately, if that fails it may be repalcement time.

Here is some addl info:
Connect the device to the PC in MSC Mode
View/c200: Turn on then press and hold the rewind button while plugging to the PC
If that fails, unplug the Sansa from the computer. Uninstall all the Sansa software in the add/remove programs section of Control Panel. Reinstall the clean version of the software from Sandisk’s website – make sure you get the files for the c200 series. Then replug the Sansa and try again. The root of the problem is that Sansa has one set of drivers and Windows has another. If you plug the mp3 player into the computer before installing the Sansa drivers, the Windows drivers will trump the Sansa’s.
Here is a helpful link from Sandisk on the problem with extra information on Vista operating systems:

My sansa wont boot up


The best results that I have had were to hold the power button for about 15 seconds. ( if you only hold it for 3 seconds it goes into sleep mode). This shuts the device off. Then restart it.
