Battery won't recharge on my sandisk clip anymore

How do I get my sandisk to recharge? I plugged it into the computer as I always do and this time the 'Conneted' bar doesn't show that it is recharging. There is no charge left in my unit at all. Do I have to get a new lithium battery?

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.

I believe the mp3 player's charge to last for 15 hours. It is only holding a charge for about 5 hours


Ifthe recharageable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.

How to reset the Sandisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player:

Hold down the Power/Resetbutton for about 15 seconds to perform a normal reset.

Otherwise, drain the battery completely by forcing it on until the rechargeable battery is completely drained: this will reset the unit completely.

Sansa clip mp3 player has problem with recharging. now dead.


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.

My sanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player will not charge anymore. At least not on the computer I'm on. I have had it hooked up to charge for 2 days now and nothing. Why is this and how can I charge it?


This is direct from the sansa FAQs at http://www.sansa.com/support/sansa_clip/faqs 02. Why won’t my Sansa Clip charge when I connect it to my computer? USB Cable
Make sure that the USB cable is properly plugged in and use the original cable.

Computer in Hibernation mode
Make sure that the computer isn’t entering hibernate or sleep mode while the device is connected. The computer must be on in order to charge your player.

USB Port 2.0
Make sure your player is connected USB 2.0 port (1.1 occasionally causes charging problems).

USB Port location
Try plugging in different USB port (i.e. USB port in the back of the computer); sometimes the front USB ports have problem charging up the device.

Battery
Make sure the battery is fully charged. It takes approximately 3 hours to fully charge the battery.

Latest firmware
Make sure to update firmware by downloading and installing the Sansa Firmware Updater.

I hope this helps, and don't forget to rate the answer.

Sandisk clip won't recharge


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).

Your Clip never turns on at all? Even when you plug it into the computer?

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.
