My sansa just stopped working one day & would not charge. As nothing had happened to the unit to damage it I just assumed the battery was gone. I ordered a replacement battery and installed it - it...

Buy it a new cable. Get one marked as USB 2.0
I have a ebook reader that was not charging via USB, the cable not fitting snugly.
I works fine with another cable, and, yes, it is a nice, snug fit.
The socket on the unit might be damaged or there may be a fault on the circuit board, but a loose connector is more likely.

The iPod USB Charger

<p>The USB cable that came with all iPod has two purposes: to your device to your computer so you can update and add music, and iPod to charge. All iPods have a lithium ion battery stops charging when the battery is full, the total life of your battery is not affected if you leave the iPod is connected to a power source. It usually takes four hours to recharge most iPods. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Connect the USB connector into an available high-power USB 2.0 port on your computer. Low-power USB ports, such as those in external keyboards and hubs do not work. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the 30-pin connector at the other end of the USB cable 30-pin connector on your iPod. If you charge an iPod shuffle, there is no dock connector port. Instead, use the connector on the other end of USB cable that fits in the headset. Set the iPod down and let it recharge. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Unplug the USB cable when the iPod battery indicator is full. If you charge an iPod shuffle, the green light will appear. <br />

Yea my sansa 1g mp3 player wont turn on at all


how long id you charge the battery?. You can charge for longer hour and see if it will power it.If it does no power,the battery might be dead and need a replacement.

Test the battery with the same type of the mp3 to comfirm if the battery is the functioning.If the battery is OK, that means it needs to be flashed to restored the lost memory of the mp3.

Good luck.

Ipod will fully charge but only lasts a short time. whats wrong?

My little brother gave me his ipod shuffle for the same reason, saying the battery was dying and would only play for half an hour after a full night's charge. However, I went ahead and gave it a shot anyway and it always lasts for several hours (long enough that it's never died, so I don't know an actual time).

Anyway, it turned out to be a usb hardware problem. His old computer wasn't built to charge via usb, so the ipod would take what little it could and flop five songs later. I don't know what kind of hardware you're running, but perhaps you could try plugging it into a different computer and seeing if that chnges things?

I would also recommend looking into wall chargers, if that is the case. Otherwise the convenience factor kinda goes out the window.

Sansa c150 will not turn on

IF it displays the logo, it seems to be a very common problem with this player.

I spent hours last night trying to solve this same issue.
Becuase the problem is SO common, and the information is so scattered, I decided to write up my discoveries on a wiki

Hope this helps!

Can an ipod and a sansa live in the same home?

If your itunes music is saved in mp3 format, you can upload the music to your Sansa with no trouble.
