Try putting it into recovery mode. you can do this by putting the hold sign to where it shows orange, then holding the record button down while holding the power button down and continue to hold them at the same time. make sure your sansa is plugged into the computer while you put it into recovery mode. for more information here is a link to the forums where they tell you how to put it in recovery mode http://forums.sandisk.com/sansa/board?board.id=e200

My sansa mp3 will not charge on my computer it just drains the battery instead. I have tried rebooting my computer but it still will not charge.....help I miss my music !!


Not all computer USB ports put out enough current to charge the battery. If you're plugging the Sansa into a USB hub, try plugging it in directly. If there's another USB port available, try that.

If that doesn't work, you may have to get a separate USB charger, as used for some cell phones.

Also, bear in mind that when the Sansa is connected to a computer, you can't listen to your music on it.

HI, MY NAME IS ANGELA. I PURCHSED A SANSA MODEL


The Sansa charges via the USB cable. Fully charged, it should be good for 12-15 hours of playing. Be aware that not all computer USB ports put out enough current to charge external devices. If your computer doesn't charge the Sansa, try a different computer. You can also charge the Sansa using other USB charges, such as you'll see for charging cell phones from a wall outlet or a car cigarette lighter.

Will my mp3 player (sandisk sansa m230) charge


Assuming the computer puts out enough juice, yes. Not all USB ports do.

Plug it in, and the Sansa should say "Charging" if it is charging. If it doesn't, try a different USB port if possible. If your computer has ports on the front/side and on the back, the back ones are more likely to put out sufficient power.

How do i charge my sansa mp3?


  • Step 1:Plug the appropriate end of the USB link cable that came with your SanDisk MP3 player into the MP3 player itself. The port for this cable can be found on the right side of most models of SanDisk MP3 players.
  • Step 2:Plug the other end of the USB link cable into a free USB port on your computer. This will effectively connect your SanDisk MP3 player to your computer.
  • Step 3:Turn your computer on. This will cause your SanDisk MP3 player to automatically begin drawing power from the computer and charging its battery. On the screen, an indicator light will flash yellow while the player is charging.
  • Step 4:Disconnect the cable from both your MP3 player and your computer when the device has finished charging. You will be able to tell when the charge is complete when the indicator light that previously was flashing yellow appears as solid green.

    Will not take a charge. took two charges prior but has now stopped


    I found this online at www.sandisk.com under warranty and manuals link.
    I believe they have an excellent Return Authorization system, that if you truly have trouble with your disk player and it's still under warranty, gather your receipts and get on line to get an RMA. I have successfully returned to disc players that were infact faulty (FAT problems) and received two replacement players. Get on it right away. Look at the manaul online too. IT can be very helpful. I've included the Battery info, and the link for the manual at the end.

    adapter (not included) USB port.
    Charging
    To charge the battery, please follow these steps:
    1. Connect the larger end of the USB cable into an available USB port on the
    computer.
    2. Connect the smaller end of the USB cable into the Sansa
    ®
    Clip player.
    3. The computer must be on for most USB ports to charge your battery. Your
    Sansa
    ®
    will show connected and the yellow charging indicator will appear.
    The battery level indicator will blink while charging. You will not be able to
    play while connected to the computer USB.
    4. To stop recharging, simply disconnect the cable.
    The battery can also be charged using an AC adapter (not included) or a car adapter

    My sanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player will not charge anymore. At least not on the computer I'm on. I have had it hooked up to charge for 2 days now and nothing. Why is this and how can I charge it?


    This is direct from the sansa FAQs at http://www.sansa.com/support/sansa_clip/faqs 02. Why won’t my Sansa Clip charge when I connect it to my computer? USB Cable
    Make sure that the USB cable is properly plugged in and use the original cable.

    Computer in Hibernation mode
    Make sure that the computer isn’t entering hibernate 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 your player is connected USB 2.0 port (1.1 occasionally causes charging problems).

    USB Port location
    Try plugging in different USB port (i.e. USB port in the back of the computer); sometimes the front USB ports have problem charging up the device.

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

    Latest firmware
    Make sure to update firmware by downloading and installing the Sansa Firmware Updater.

    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/
