Re: wont turn on

Make sure the button on the left side that says on-hold-off is in the off position, then try turning it on by pressing and holding down the play/pause circle button on the front of the mp3 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!

Hi, Try this out...

1) Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
2) Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

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

My ipod nano wont do anything

  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.

Hope this helps

Cant switch it on!

This could be a hardware issue (requiring repalcement), but try the "soft" fixes first:

Make sure the lock slider is not in lock position, and then try turning the player on again. Connect to the computer, and see if you get any activity. If all else 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.

This Sounds Stupid =(

faulty power switch on the play button? Try reflashing the firmware most MP3 player companies will post firmware updates on their websites usually under "support" once you reflash the player try it again. If it still doesn't work i have one other idea although it may sound stupid. Did you put batteries in it or is it an internal battery?
