Cannot make it turn on, or do anything

I've only had my sansa MP3 player about 2 weeks. It's battery was low, and it has the rechargable kind, so I pluged it in. Now, When I try to turn it on, it says SanDisk then goes black again, and nothing happens.

Re: Cannot make it turn on, or do anything

Yea I had the same problem. Do you have one of those "Music Power Duet" thingies that you plug into the wall? You can also charge the Mp3 player off of that and it sometimes works. If not, just use a screw driver to take the back off and get the battery out for a few seconds and put it back in, unless you don't have a narrow screw driver in the first place.

Charge the battery-- AFAIK, it won't charge via USB.

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.

Charging the battery on a sansa mp3 player

recharge it by plugging it in to the USB port. your sansa should have come with a USB cable and the ports are pretty easy to find.
almost all types of earbuds or earphones are compatible with the sansa system, so if you just go out and buy some you should be fine.
