Re: display is not coming when i switch on the player

Seetha - Call Sansa to get THEIR price. View eBay to find a reasonable price. It is definitely NOT cost-effective to repair it. Ask your local Geek Squad if they are willing - probably no - minimum $250. If you live in Philadelphia or another major metro, see if they have Mp3 repair servicemen - most places do not because the actual builders/info is in Korean, Japanese, etc, and b/c it is less expensive to replace than to repair.

other guests -
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out:

Cannot turn the player on

Your hold button slide has slipped from underneath the switch or the switch itself has come desoldered. If you are out of warranty, try removing the srews that hold the case on and carefully attempt to realign the switch slde with the tip if the switch. If this dosen't work you may have a soldering problem and this job is really tiny. Good luck.
