Charging the c250

Hi, I was wondering if there is a way to charge my c250 without the display light constantly on. I remember doing it once by accident, but I can not re-call what I did.

If someone knows how to do this it'd be greatly appreciated if you could share your knowledge with me.

Re: Charging the c250

Plug the MP3 player into your computer with the USB cord. Press and hold the power (menu) button for about 5 or 6 seconds. The screen should turn off.

My Sansa c250 won't charge properly. Initially when I bought it, I used it with a Windows XP PC, no sweat. That computer died and I began charging it with an OSX instead. It worked for a while, but after a...

I had a similar problem. My Sansa c250 would charge, when plugged into the computer. It would read that it was writing but the computer did not recognized that the Sansa c250 was connected. I switched to a different USB port and got the same results. I then realized that the two ports I was using were 1.0 port and idmedeatly when inserted in the 2.0 port it began charging and the computer recongized the Sansa c250. I know this won't solve every charging problem one may have. Changing the battery would be easier in some cases. Especially if they were sold like the AA or AAA.

How do I re-charge the C200 battery?

I have both C240 & C250 players so I shall assume that your C200 uses the same method:
there is the cable included with the C240 player that has a USB connector that goes from the PC or laptop USB port to the player's multi-pin connector. This supplies power to the player to charge the battery. When you plug in the cable to both ports, the player's display will light up and you will see a little "battery" icon symbol in the upper right corner of the display that indicates the charging action and status. It's tiny and hard to see, but the green on the battery icon will get a steady green color when charging is complete.
Also, after-market re-sellers (Dealextreme, et al) have both car outlet and house wall outlet adapters specific for this model, as well as generic models with USB ports. However, I cannot vouch for the safety or quality of these merchants or their products.

Philips mp3 player sa6045

This player shows the "Do not disconnect" message when it is doing something critical such as transferring tracks or updating firmware, which could corrupt the player if disconnected part way through.

The player shows the "OK to disconnect" when it is idle. As the message says, it's ok to disconnect, as the player will not corrupt if disconnected when it is idle.

These messages mean that the player does not need the "Safe to remove" procedure.

It is ok to disconnect part way through charging. Also the player will condition the battery once it is fully charged, so it's ok to leave it charging.

Occassionally batteries can "memorise" when constantly disconnect and reconnected without fully charging and discharging. To help prevent this, fully discharge the player (leave on until dead) and fully charge and condition (leave charging for about 12 hours) every couple of weeks or so.
