Re: The device does not start

Try to reset the device by holding the power button for about 15-20 seconds...that should power the device..if that doesnt do it i would recommend that you connect the device to the computer and leave it for a couple hours...then try to do a firmware upgrade on the device...and let me know whats the outcome,....

My device will not start. I can't use it.

Hi there

I can understand your issue..

Well when you say that the device is not start then it could be an issue with the corrupted file. I'd kindly suggest you to format the device.

In order to format the device i want you to keep the device mode in to MTP and connect it to the computer.

Open Windows Media Player (WMP 10) and you can see the device in the right hand side.

Highlight the device and up above that you could see an icon that look like pencil.

Click on that, it will format the device.

Then try to turn on the sansa it should work
NOTE : If you format the device the data will be wiped off.

Please revert if any clarification or still the issue persists..

What I would recommend you to do is to make sure that your device is under MTP mode instead of do that go under menu,setting, usb and then there should the two mode listed there...then you want to plug your device in the back of your computer..not in the front..tghat is very important....once you do up your windows media on your start thee sync panel..if your device is recognize properly it will be showing there on the right side..and if its not listed properly, it will say connect a device..if thats the on your start menu right click on computer and then click on propetties, click under hardware and then device manager..your device should be showing there...check under disk drives to see if your device is showing there and if it doesnt you want to right click and hit uninstall...we dont want your device to be under disk drive ..we want it to be under windows portable device...once you uninstall it...go to and find the driver for your device..and then connecct the device on the back of your should work properly..if you are still having any problems..let me know..i would be more than happy to assist you..
Please rate accordingly
Thank you
