Question about SanDisk Sansa m240 MP3 Player

1 Answer

My charging port seems to not work

My battery is bad and I can't get my unit to charge or sync with the computer. I have a friend that has the same unit and I have swapped batteries and know my battery is bad. Because it works fine with his battery and mine wont work in his unit. Even when his battery is in my unit, I still can't get the unit to sync with the computer. I have also tried his cable and that doesn't help. I think the port may have some problem. I am a little accident prone and have been a little rough on my unit.

My advise to you is if you have Sandisk Sansa m240 it does not come with a chargeable battery so you cannot charge it,replace it and your problem will go away. I replaced my unit with a rechargeable battery and I have no more battery problems. I charge my batter in a charger when needed.

Telecom r100 battery

It could be one of these three things.
1. Bad port. Often in laptops these ports become loose.
2. Bad battery.
3. Bad charger.

Borrowing either a universal power charger, or the charger from someone with a similar laptop, can eliminate some of the possibilities unless it is indeed your charging port.

If after plugging it in, the battery charges you know you had a bad charger. If the battery fails to charge, you know its time for a new battery. Again this only if the port itself is not bad.

Universal chargers can be expensive. You can find batteries and chargers on Ebay for a decent price.

My acer 5920 wont charge or wont work on ac adaptor but the ac adaptor works fine on my friends laptop

Either the AC port on the back of your laptop has a lose connection - if operation without battery is an issue, or if battery charge only is issue - then battery may have to be reseated or it is at end of life. Test by removing battery and running AC alone. if connection port is bad, laptop will power off immediately/unexpectedly. Good luck! btw - batteries for this unit are around $40 on ebay

I plugged my iphone to the computer but it wont charge or sync

Try turning it off and then back on, if turning it on and off doesn't work, restoring it might work. Also try to remove the SIM card and put it back into the phone. I recommend simply exchanging the phone at the Apple store if it is still under warranty.

My tom tom 300 won't charge in the car and seems to drain quickly when on the mount. Do the charging mounts go bad?

Every piece of equipment fails at one point or another. Wear and Tear. The problem may be the battery or the charger. Try charging it at a USB port of a computer if you have the cable.
As to draining, you can enact battery power saving features on your unit.

My computer does not recharge any more... i think the problem is to do with something inside the charging port...

you may have a bad battery or a bad charging unit. if the pc still works when plugged into the charger, it's probably a bad battery.

The sidekick 3 has an issue with thte charging port. If you have a friend with a sidekick 3 or sidekick ID, try one of their batteries. If your unit powers on, the charging port has gone bad.

the repair for a charginf port runs about 80-100 dollars. A cheaper work around is to get a charging cradle that has a spare battery charger slot. They run about 30 dollars on ebay and it will allow you to charge the bettery seperate from the phone.

C330 will not charge using supplied cable

It should function now. If you have any further problems, try charging from the computer for about 10 hours. This sometimes solves problems like yours.

USB Sync Cable

I dont' think so. No other PDA does - it would be quite a drain on the USB port. It isn't like powering the tiny LED in an optical mouse.
