Won't turn off/on

I'm not sure what exactly happened to it - i turned it off, and set it down, 30 minutes later I went to turn it on, and the screen did not light up, though the blue light on the "dial" did. It will not turn off, nor relight the screen. No music is playing, and I'm not sure what happened ._. Help? Oh, and btw, the HOLD button IS off :3

Press and hold the power or menu button for around 30-45 seconds then wait for a few seconds before turning on the player.

My Sansa Fuze Wont Turn On or Charge

Hold down the power button for 30 secconds to a minute, then let go and turn it on again as per normal. This is a built-in reset function.

It seems to happen for me when certain mp3's are played, i think they might be corrupt and the palyer doesnt like them, and so crashes.

Hope this helps!

Zen V Plus locked up, will not shut off

After 3 1/2 hours, the battery went dead. I waited a couple of minutes, then plugged it into my computer to see if the battery would charge. It started charging. A few hours later I went back to check on it, and it showed a full battery. I disconnected it from my computer, and turned it on. It came on, but the screen just said "Low Battery". I then plugged it back into my computer, and the screen said "Rebuilding Library". I left it for about a 1/2 hour, and it was done. I unplugged it from my computer, turned it on, and it works now!! Hope this helps out everyone else who has the same problem.

My zen won't turn on. only the blue light flashes when its plugged in. the screen doesnt turn on. what does this mean thanks

Well you can try this if you still got the zen, press the reste button, dont hold just press it then hold down the power button and it will start up but mine just kept on going black fter a while so i had to put it into recovery mode by doing the following.
Hold down play untill the end
Press the reset button
Hold down the power button
Makes sure you releas the play button last
after that do Reload Firmware i think
then it will delete the firmware make sure you have this downloaded on your computer
its the newest firmware
when you downloaded this plug in your zen into the computer and it should turn on your zen and then say Firmware problem and if it doesnt just put it into recovery mode then plug it in.
Then make sure all application are turned off like Mozzila or the Internet Explorer, then just double click on the firmware and it should fix

The ipod won't turn on or do anything?

This happened to me to. I was listening to it when I arrived at my destination, and I thought I turned it off and I put it in my pocket. Later that day when I went to listen to it, it wouldn't turn on at all. Aparently, it had stayed on. Hold the pause button for five to ten seconds. The apple symbol will appear on your ipod. Immeadility put it in your docking station before it goes away. Your ipod will turn on, and itwill start charging.

I hope this helps. Please rate my solution.

I had exactly the same problem and solved it myself yesterday after months of phoning/emailing Archos "customer support" - with my set up anyway it was my WEP password on my BT wireless router was wrong, I changed it on my pc to the one that was on the bottom of my hub, made sure that the exact same password was entered on my Archos and I could not believe my eyes when it worked. You need to make sure of course that all the other settings match too, IP address, Gateway and all that other stuff I dont really understand, (nor want to !) Good luck Ulstergirl
