    Same problem. When I connect my sansa clip to the pc it displays the "connected" message. When I unplug it from my pc, the sansa clip wont turn on. Before this happened it would turn off if I removed the earphones from the sansa clip.

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.)

    Wont turn on, plug it into comp reads...not enough free space for music DB please free 30MD. my computer does not recognize there is even anything pluged in. the clip says its connected and charged. how do...

    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.

    I have a refridge maytag model mff2557hes i replaced the comp board now it lights up but cannot change temps i have no comp i have no fan how can i reset board

    The board should have a small reset switch on it which you will need to press and hold for 10 seconds while the power is on. If not turn off the mains power and disconnect the board from all devices and power for at least 60 minutes then reconnect it and all should be OK. If not then it sounds as though you may be unfortunate enough to have a faulty board. It does happen!

    Won't turn on

    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
