I don't know if this applies to the Sansa for sure or not but many MP3 devices and smartphones if completely dischard will not charge back up via usb to computer, you have to use a wall jack charger. This is true for the Motorola Q and other smart phones I know for a fact, also the Apple Ipod Gen 5 has had some issues with charging after complete discharge of the battery. Try a wall charger if possible. I don't know much about the sansas.

Why wont my zeepad turn on


Check the battery is charged - it may be duff and nee replaced if it is not charging or your power adaptor may not be charging it - check it with a multimeter - the power socket on laptops andf tablets are very susceptible to damage - if that fails then plug it into a pc using the usb port - it will charge very slowly as usb only has a very low charge current but be patient and if it charges up after 12 hours using the usb method you will know one way or another whether its the battery or the power socket or charger.

The battery or charger might be bad and need replacing. Do you have a different USB port available? It's possible the port you are trying to charge from is not powered.

NEED INSTRUCTION FOR Apple iPod shuffle 3rd Generation Silver


Connect the iPod shuffle USB cable connector into a high-power USB port on your computer.
Note: To charge an iPod shuffle battery, connect the device to a high-power USB port.


Please be aware that USB keyboards and non-powered USB hubs generally do not have high-power USB ports.


If you connect to a low or non-powered port, iPod shuffle will not charge.

The computer must be turned on and set to not go to sleep.


Plug the other end of the iPod shuffle USB Cable into the headphone port on the iPod shuffle.

Verify the iPod shuffle is connected securely.


Once the iPod shuffle is plugged in, it will take about 2 hours to charge the battery to 80% capacity and about 3 hours to charge it to 100%.

hope this helps

I just bought a garim nuvi 1360 and i forgot to ask how to charge the unit . first to plug it in the car lighter, what about the usb, could i tapp it in my laptop thru usb. pls explain better oscar...


There are 3 ways to charge your satnav. You can charge it with the car cigarette lighter socket or an optional mains charger both of which take around 4 hours. You can charge it through the USB port of your computer which takes about 8 hours. If charging with the computer both the satnav and computer should be turned on.

If charging with the car be sure that there's power going to the cigarette lighter socket. Some cars need to be running for power to reach it.

My fuse wont charge at all. i bought a new charger and still get no charge


Make sure that the USB cable is properly plugged in and use the original cable that came with your player.

Computer in Hibernation mode
Make sure the computer isn't entering hibernation or sleep mode while the device is connected. The computer must be ON in order to charge your player.

USB Port 2.0
Make sure the player is connected to a USB 2.0 port (1.1 occasionally causes charging problems).

USB Port location
Try plugging into different USB ports (i.e. USB port in the back of the computer); occasionally the front USB ports have limited power to charge up the device.

Battery
Make sure the battery is fully charged. It takes approximately 3 hours to fully charge the battery.


Latest firmware
Depending on what Sansa player you have, make sure it's up to date with the latest Firmware.

AC charger (optional)
AC chargers (sold separately) have a 500-1000 milliamp max output, which provides much better charging ability than a USB port. These accessories are available at SanDisk web site.

Can you charge a lap top thru usb port on a desk top


Hi guest, you cannot charge the laptop thru usb, it will be solely on the AC adaptor port. USB's are functioned for multi-media devices such as cameras, MP3 players, etc..

MY Zen WONT TURN ON. It also wont charge.


Connect the player to a USB port on the back of a desktop PC.. Check the display for the charging icon . As the display times out after a few seconds, press any button on the player to reactivate the display. If the battery is fully depleted, the charging icon may not be displayed. Cup the player in your hands to check that the blue power LED behind the Play/Pause and Options buttons is blinking on and off repeatedly. This indicates that the player is successfully charging. After 1 hour of charging, power on the unit to activate the display. The charging icon should be displayed. Allow the player to charge for at least 6 hours. During this time, if charging from a USB port, please ensure your PC does not enter a power conservation mode (Standby, Sleep, or Hibernate) as this will interrupt charging. If the player does not indicate a charge, or will not power on after at least 6 hours of charging, please contact Customer Support.
You might try updating your ZEN V or ZEN V Plus firmware to take advantage of new features and functionality.

My camera is not charging


I got this camera from my friend's daughter. She told me she only used it a few times and won't charge. At first, I tried to charge it thru the USB port, got a brief green light then 3 red blinks just like others. So, I tried to charge it thru a powered USB hub and it charges. Once it fully charged, I took some pictures and tried to charge it again thru a regular USB (not the powered USB hub I used earlier) and it is charging right now. This is also true for a certain cell phones. If you let the battery drained its power completely all the way, you must charge it with a high current charger to wake up the battery before you can charge thru USB port.
