More information needed. Why do you want to change the battery. The batteries in the mp3 players last a very long time. If you need to change it, do in quickly, don't take it out and wait days to change it. The songs etc are on the hard drive, no you will not loose anything. Is this a Sansa 2GB e250?

You can go to for more information about the battery. You can also contact support 1-866-726-3475

    Once you install the battery, charge it totally. About 3-4 hours, because the battery will be new and will have no charge. Again, you will not loose your music etc. because it is on the hard drive of the Sansa. Also, if you have a SD card in the Sansa, remove it, before you take the battery out.

    FYI When you remove the battery of a small device with a hard drive or laptop computer, you do not loose data because it is stored in the hard drive. Unless you tamper with the hard drive you will be fine.

    Best of luck. You need any further help, let me know.

Ifthe rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.

What do i o if my phis mp3 wont turn o i tried therest buttonand evrything, and it diddnt work.

The battery is probably at fault and they may have been a problem when you were charging the mp3 player or something. There are 2 options when there is a problem with the battery but first you must have the battery checked by someone who is certified to service phillips products.
One option is that you replace the battery but this may be hard to. You will keep your music but in many situations it may not be viable as buying a new battery may be more than buying a new mp3 player.
The other option is to buy another mp3 player but of course you will lose the music that was on your previous mp3
Unfortunately this may be the reality if the battery is to blame but just to be on the safe side get a second opinion
Good luck

C150 as not working what's solution?


Check the orange "Hold" switch on the left side of the Sansa C150, if you cannot turn on the MP3 player or if none of the buttons is working. When the "Hold" switch is up, the buttons are disabled. Slide the "Hold" switch down to activate the buttons again.

Press and hold the "Power" button until the LCD screen lights up when turning on the MP3 player. Pressing the button quickly does not turn on the device. The "Power" button is located on the front of the device, under all the other control buttons.

Replace the AAA battery, if you cannot power on your MP3 player. To replace the battery, remove the battery cover from the back of the device by pressing in on its tab and pulling it off. Remove the old battery, insert the new battery and replace the cover. One AAA battery provides approximately 15 hours of power for your Sansa C150.

Change the backlight settings to conserve battery life. This is useful if you find the battery loses power quickly during normal use of your Sansa C150. To change the backlight settings, choose "Settings" to bring up the "Settings" menu. Select "Display," "Backlight" and then a shorter backlight time. The backlight will shut off after a period of inactivity that matches your backlight setting.

Review your music purchases to understand what rights you've purchased to the content, if you are unable to play a track back on your Sansa C150. When you purchase music, it comes with certain rules for how you can store and play it. You may not have paid for the right to transfer the song to a portable media player.

Reset the Sansa C150 if it acts erratically or if you have other problems. To reset the device, open the "Settings" menu and choose "Reset All." Choose "Save" to finish restoring the MP3 player to its factory default settings. If you decide not to reset the device during this process, select "Cancel" instead of "Save."

I plugged it in to charge and after hours of it being attached to my computer, I turned it on and nothing--did I lose all my music?

Does the computer recognize that it's attached? If the battery is dead you could have lost your music. But it should be on your computer so I wouldn't worry.

My battery only plays music for around 8 hours, not the 20 as per the owner's manual. Can the battery be replaced without losing all the downloaded music?

Without knowing the make/model of the MP3 device its hard to give 100% answer.

However most MP3 devices will allow you to backup the data stored on the device to a PC to be restored back to the device whenever you please. Also if the battery to the deivce is removeable, this will not effect the data on the device and a simple battery replacement will solve the problem.
