Can't get sandisk sansa fuze+ to turn on, what do I do


Hold the on/off slider for 30-40 seconds and then release to reset the device. Then try turning it on. Also, sometimes if the battery is low/dead it will take longer than 3 hours to charge up. If it does not turn on after the reset you might try letting it charge for a day or so and try again. If it doesn't work after all of this, it should be returned to where ever you bought it for a replacement.

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.

After charging my MP3 player it appears fully charged but it will only play for about an hour and the battery runs down. i have recharged it again, same thing. now what?


The very first time you charge your battery YOU MUST CHARGE IT FULLY!!! If you didn't, that is probably the problem.

Also, even if you charge the player for just a couple of minutes it will APPEAR to have a fully charged battery when it actually doesn't.

Most portable media devices require at least 20 minutes to an hour to fully charge whether the screen shows that it is fully charged or not.

Battery doesn't hold a charge - 1 hr play from the start - even thought I have charged up to 5 hours


How old is it ?? Try and charge it over night-- It should operate longer than 1 hr. Maybe bring it back for exchange.. ?

Mp3 player wont stay charged for longer than 4 hours


if it says that it's charged fully after you charge it then it sounds klike the battery may be almost dead, contact sandisk on their website to see if these are replacable because many are not. www.sandisk.com

Sansa c240 battery issue


Does it indicate that it is fully charged? If it does, I would return it or have it replaced. You have a 1 year warranty from SanDisk. SanDisk Technical Support 1-866-726-3475 If not, try using a different USB port on the computer, preferably one in the back. Best of Luck.

How Long to Charge??


sandisk recommends 3+ hours for the initial charge and then about 1.5 - 2 hours for after the battery is drained. More information is needed to diagnose this problem. but here is some info. After 45 minutes on the phone with sandisk to get them to send a new battery, they ran me through these troubleshooting steps, hope they help. do one at a time and see if you get a result -Reset device take out battery hold power button for 30 count put battery back in turn device on. -Upgrade firmware Go to website, download firmware update This was the URL at the time of writing this http://sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1376 or try http://sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx Install according to instructions. let the device reboot. -Format memory. turn hold switch on, orange should be visible hold pause/play button and press power. click forward button when the screen comes up. let this run. after reboot flip the hold switch off. then they put me on hold for 10 minutes...
