First, try a soft reset. Do this by pressing the center button and the up volume button simultaneously and try turning it on. If that does not work for you, you will need to get a micro sd card (it can be a dummy) and insert it into the slot on the side of the mp3 player. If you do not have one, you can use one of the round edges of a paper clip (be careful) to get it to come on. When you put either in, it should come on automatically, but if not, just press the power button. This should work.
If it does not work, you may need to get a firmware update from this web site: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1376
Remember that you need to back up all of your information before doing the update.

My mp3 player will not charge. I have tried


Hello,

it should be the battery. Maybe its very weak.

Plug it to your laptop and allow it to charge for a long time. Make sure its turned off and even if it does not show any sign of charging, just leave it, it might come up itself.

But if this does not work, you will have to find a way to change the battery or get another player.

Take care.

Will not power up


Mine did that too. Don't know if it was the problem but I pulled out the headphone jack and it started up, when I plugged the headphones back in, it went off again, but when I pulled it out it started up again. I plugged the headphones back in and it worked this time. Maybe there's a flaw in mine, I was playing with the headphones before it died, not pulling it out or anything but twisting it (yes, I know that could probably tear that up but I only did it once because the jack was slipping out.)

SANSA EXPRESS


Not sure but it could be dead, but dont worry till you do a hard reset by pressing and holding down the "select(Square button)"and "volume up" buttons.

I just got mine today and been looking through the sandisk forum.

Hope that helps bye :)
