Re: sansa mp3 problems

It seems that there is a design problem with the battery and the battery cover. I had the same problem w/ no charging.

So, after looking at it over and over. I took a 3m sticky note and cut it. I folded the the sticky side out and the rest of the paper was folded 3-4 times. I removed the battery cover. I matched the length and width of the battery placed the sticky side on top of the battery. I then replace the cover. It worked.

It seems the the cover does not place enough pressure on the battery to seat it properly. That screws up the charging and syncing mechanism. There you go!

Mine wont turn on i think i left mine in my pocket for 30 mins and now it wont charge turn on or be regonized by my computer ive tried reseting it nothing worked :'(

Leaving an mP3 player in your pocket won't hurt it.
Direct sunlight for 30 min might kill it.
A pass through the washer certainly will damage it.
Moisture, such as with heavy exercise, with the unit in your pocket may cause it to fail. Moisture is a problem.

My sansa wont turn on

Its usually because it gets over heated. I had the same problem with my old one. Just leave it alone unplugged for about 5-10 minutes and it should cool down enough to be turned on and used!

Try prerssing all the buttons on the Sansa's face at the same time holding it down for a few seconds until the screen shuts down then turn it on again. This should work
