My clip will not turn on after i disconnect it from my comp. It will not reset, but when it is hooked up to my comp, it shows the screen with the battery charging. As soon as i disconnect it, the screen goes blank instead of automatically beginning to play. i need help!
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.)

did it recently die? If so plug it into your comp and hold the power button up for 20s then let go and slide up to turn it on. Its like an internal reset that does NOT lose your music. It worked for me hope it does for you.

Slide the Clip's power switch to the "lock" position, then hold down the rewind button (looks like "<<") while plugging your Clip into the computer. You should then see your Clip show up in Window Explorer as a "removable disk". Right-click on the Clip in Windows Explorer and select "Format". Don't select "Quick Format", and be SURE you're doing this to your Clip, not one of your computer's disks.
After the format is done, unplug the Clip, plug it back in and verify that you no longer get the "not enough free space" message.
just figured mine out. turn your clip off. put the slider in the hold or lock position. press and hold the center button on your clip. continue to hold while attaching the usb to your clip. keep holding the center button as clip powers up. after appox. 12-15 seconds, your computer should read the clip. i am running windows xp and this is the ONLY way my comp. will read the clip. but it works great!! good luck!
What you need to do is first make sure that you are safely disconnecting your sansa clip and not just taking it off the computer. Second you may have a virus in your sansa clip I would prefer you call Technical Support for Sansa clips, the number is 1-866-726-3475, they are open 4am-10pm PST or 7am-1am EST. Hope this helps
