Doesnt turn on?

Does it say "low battery system shutdown" - If so, the battery may have come loose from the charging contacts. remove the 4 screws on the back and take the battery out and press it back in firmly.

Is the screen blank and does not light up - If so, press and hold the POWER button for 30 seconds to RESET the device. If that doesnt work, try it again.

Otherwise, you can try this generic fix;

Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted.

You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool.

- Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds)
- Slide the hold switch into "hold" position.
- Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer.

Then run the recovery tool. Select format when prompted.



Best of Luck.

Sansa media converter!! please help!


Besides the Media Converter, you will need other software which is available for download on the Sansa website - the media converter is just one part of the total package.

If that still fails,
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, 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.

Code 10 means it cannot find the correct Driver for the device.

You PC needs to have XP / SP 2 and Windows Media Player 10 or higher.

If you do not have these programs then the driver is not on your PC.

Update these components and try connecting the device again.




Best of Luck.
