My Sansa Clip 1G's screen has completely gone out &
In the beginning it was ok. I bought it frm walmart and ity played fine. About 2 1/2 weeks later i noticed the screen darker on one side and brighter on the other. It gradually got worse until i could see nothing and i desperately want to use my sound recorder and radio but cannot b/c i can't see anything. If anyone can help me not let $50 go to waste on what i still believe is a good mp3, i would greatly appreciate it.
(Note: my sansa issued headphones were defected and only the right plug worked; this was a gradual issue also.)

Re: My Sansa Clip 1G's screen has completely gone out &
It is not a good mp3 player - you have more than one hardware issue. The replacement headphone jacks are not available, and would require major electrical work to install anyways (bootleg DIY fixes, such as those shown on YouTube, only succeed about half of the time). That issue alone would justify getting an in-warranty exchange.
But, due to your screen problem, the LCD controller circuit is also bad. Mp3 repair for such issues is not cost-effective AT ALL, even in areas where such services are available - you could buy 6 of these for the cost of repair.
That player has a 1-year warranty - go ahead and call Sansa and get it replaced.

After that, you should update your new firmware from sandisk forum, you should check Sansa Clip or Sansa Clip+ from the following web, http://forums.sandisk.com/sansa/

I have had the same problem. It seems the radio never turns off and keeps drawing power. Solution: before charging, go to a song, start it playing, then pause it, then turn off the sanza clip. Plug it in and it should charge up fine.
Sounds like you have two problems here. First my guess is your files bought from walmart are corrupted some how. just delete the ones that are giving you fits and call it a day. Second you mentioned it wont even sync music,,,, Are you saying none of your music or just the walmart ones ?
