Question about SanDisk Sansa Fuze MP3 Player

1 Answer

MP3 player frozen

Battery was almost drained and after playing for an hour or so, no more charge was left. Turned player off and got the chord and attached player to charge it up.
Display is frozen and none of the controls work and it won't shut off.

Plan is to leave as is and let battery drain completely and when display goes blank to re-attach to computer and pray.

What else can I do ?

IT AS FROZEN


Hi,Use the below instruction.

Flip the MP3 player's "Hold" switch to "Off" if the switch is on. Depending on the MP3 player you own, this switch is likely located at the side or top of the player. Once the switch is off, try to turn the player on.

Let the battery of the MP3 player die. A frozen MP3 player is technically still running, and thus the battery for that player is being drained. Wait until the battery is fully dead before moving to Step 3.

Charge the MP3 player using either a computer (that's turned on) or an electronic MP3 charger. Charging the player's battery may "jolt" the player out of its frozen state. Connect the player to the computer or charger via the player's USB cable. Charge the player for 30 minutes before attempting to turn it on.

Sync the player with the appropriate software program (for example, Windows Media Player) for the MP3 player. Connect the player to the computer as described in the previous step. Open the software program and click the "Sync" tab at the top or side of the program. If necessary, click "Start Sync" underneath the tab. The name of the player appears under the "Sync" tab if the player has synced successfully. Try turning the player on once it has synced with the program.

Press the small "Reset" button on the MP3 player. This hard reset shuts the player down completely. Use a pin, tack or thin nail to press down the very small "Reset" button on the side or back of the MP3 player to reset the player. Then, try to turn the player on.

Tips & Warnings

Take the player to an electronics store if none of the steps above unfreeze the player, as there is likely a serious problem with the MP3 player's hard drive.

Also take out the batteries, if holding the play button for like 5 minutes doesn't work.

Hope that helped.

Have a nice day..

Hi there

You computer is probably frozen but this is how to solve the problem

Dear sir, my zen creative i pod is freezes on zen screen, it also does't connecting with my pc. so plz guide me how to solve my problem.


Hello

Flip the "Hold" switch that's on either one of the sides or the top of the MP3 player to "OFF." Press "Play" or any other button to try to unfreeze the player.

Leave the MP3 player on in its frozen state until the player's battery completely dies. Depending on the amount of life left on the battery, this could take several hours.

Connect the MP3 player (using the universal serial bus or USB cord) to an MP3 charger or a computer. Turn the computer on. Leave the MP3 player charging for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Connect the MP3 player to a computer using the USB cord. Open the software media program that syncs with that particular MP3 player. Then, click on the "Sync Player" or "Sync" link or tab, depending on the program you're using. Wait ten seconds, and then try to use the MP3 player. Disconnect the player from the computer if it's still frozen.

Press "Reset" on the MP3 player. Depending on the MP3 player you own, the button may be easy to find or incredibly small. With tiny buttons, a tack, needle or similar item is needed for pushing. Press and hold the "Reset" button for approximately seven to ten seconds. The player should unfreeze and reset. Some data, such as music, may be removed from the MP3 player during this process.

Sansa frozen


Reset the player - see manual or the Sandisk website for details - usually holding power in for 15 seconds or more
You are going to have to charge it for 3-4 hours before trying any additional fixes, because you let the battery drain

Frozen on.


Problem resolved. I just let it sit until battery went down far enough for "Battery" alert to come on screen.
From there I put a charge on it and everything works fine now. Probably I should have kept it charged up.
