Question about SanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player

Sandisk clip won't recharge

I got my sandisk clip last April and use it often. Now when I plug it into the computer to recharge it nothing happens in the battery insignia and it won't recharge.
Do I need to replace the battery? If so, how would I do that and what kind of battery would it take?
Thanks.

Make sure the lock switch is not engaged first.
Try another USB port on your computer.
If it still won't take, try this:
disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).

Can I recharge the battery of my Sandisk Sansa Clip MP3 player without using my computer?


Yes. AC to USB adapters are available anywhere cell phone chargers are sold. One end plugs into a wall outlet and you can plug the USB cord from your Sansa into the other end. I use such a device every night to charge my Sansa.

My computer is not recognizing the sansa clip, I am unable to recharge the device anymore, and it does not appear in my drivers. I have retried loading the disk and nothing happens...please help!


Have you tried going to settings, then system settings and changing the usb mode? I have had some computers not recognize my device and this has helped. MSC should be he default mode and your device should show as a drive. The MTP is for DRM management. I have also had a clip that did this and my usb cable was bad.

I've had the same problem as you. It probably just doesn't work on that computer. Try plugging it into another one, see if it charges.

Nothing happens when ON switch is pressed.


Have you tried recharging the MP3 player? I too have a Sansa Clip which I play in the car so I don't often see the "battery low' message, but when I recharge it the MP3 player works again. I understand it takes longer to recharge from the computer so I bought a recharger I plug into the wall.
