If it is in warranty, call Sansa and get a replacement. If not, get a new player, b/c no one will repair it - it is not cost-effective to repair an mp3 player with damage that extensive.

How do I re-charge the C200 battery?


I have both C240 & C250 players so I shall assume that your C200 uses the same method:
there is the cable included with the C240 player that has a USB connector that goes from the PC or laptop USB port to the player's multi-pin connector. This supplies power to the player to charge the battery. When you plug in the cable to both ports, the player's display will light up and you will see a little "battery" icon symbol in the upper right corner of the display that indicates the charging action and status. It's tiny and hard to see, but the green on the battery icon will get a steady green color when charging is complete.
Also, after-market re-sellers (Dealextreme, et al) have both car outlet and house wall outlet adapters specific for this model, as well as generic models with USB ports. However, I cannot vouch for the safety or quality of these merchants or their products.

Sansa c200 series – Computer/OS Not Recognizing
Connect the device to the PC in MSC Mode
View/c200: Turn on then press and hold the rewind button while plugging to the PC
If that fails, unplug the Sansa from the computer. Uninstall all the Sansa software in the add/remove programs section of Control Panel. Reinstall the clean version of the software from Sandisk’s website – make sure you get the files for the c200 series. Then replug the Sansa and try again. The root of the problem is that Sansa has one set of drivers and Windows has another. If you plug the mp3 player into the computer before installing the Sansa drivers, the Windows drivers will trump the Sansa’s.
Here is a helpful link from Sandisk on the problem with extra information on Vista operating systems:

Charger


Your USB port must be repaired. In the meantime, hopefully, your computer has another USB port that you can use. Battery is a replaceable lithium ion rechargeable battery. There are battery chargers that you can connect to wall outlets - the type that plug into the computer would probably require that you plug it into the USB port, which you said is broken - so that's a no-go. There are multiple vendors for battery chargers - one possibility is http://www.greenbatteries.com/

SanDisk Sansa c200 2Gb won't turn on


Some recent Windows updates have caused problems as severe as this on many mp3 players regardles of manufacturer (the iPod has been immune because it is not Windows-based). If you have either Windows Vista or Windows Media Player 11, which are the latest versions, then perform a firmware update on your Sansa player by going to the Sansa website and getting the firmware updater:

Dock connector port


Hello,

Try going to repair your iPod at apple.
I don't think they will accept it because it is a old version.
You can try.

Hope this helps!

One earphone works


i had the same exact problem with mine. Reading around it seems to be a common problem with the Sansa line. I opened mine up and found that one of the solder points that holds the ear phone jack to the main board had come loose. I soldered it back and it works like a charm. Pretty easy too. If you have a soldering iron, just open it up and resolder the solder point that has broken off. You can read instructions for disassembly here: http://www.anythingbutipod.com/archives/2006/11/sandisk-sansa-c200-disassembled.php When you have it apart, looking at it from the side, with the jack to the right, the broken point should be the rear (closest to the circuitry) point. You will see a very small, not sure what to call it, chip on the board you have to solder a connection to. here is a diagram: http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e321/fuzzygoat/sansa-c200-disassembley-8.jpg Hope this helps.
