Re: wont turn on
These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.
Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced. Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website. Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything. Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp If these fail, then: Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version). You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer. -Tha Mp3 Doctor

Fully charge the battery to maximize playing time. However, it
is not necessary to fully charge or completely discharge the battery
each time. You can charge the battery by connecting the jukebox either
to the AC power adapter (fastest) or to a USB port on the computer. The
battery icon in the upper right corner of the screen indicates the
remaining battery charge.
Connect the USB combo cable to the AC power adapter,
and then plug the power adapter into an AC power outlet. Or, you can
connect the USB combo cable to a USB port on the computer.
Plug the combo cable into the jukebox. Make sure that the
top of the plug (the side with the arrows) is facing the same direction
as the front of the jukebox. View Picture
If you are charging your jukebox from the computer's USB
cable, turn your jukebox off. If your jukebox is on, it cannot charge
from the computer's USB cable.
Note: If you are charging your jukebox
from the AC power adapter, you can leave your jukebox on as it charges,
but it will take longer to charge.
If the jukebox is on, the power cord icon appears in the
upper right corner of the display. The keypad's backlight turns on while
the battery charges, and then turns off when the battery is fully
When your jukebox battery is finished charging, pinch the
two side buttons on the plug, and then pull the plug out of the jukebox.
If you follow these instructions which I think you know how to, it will recharge. If not the rechargeable battery needs to be replaced
To charge the battery, simply follow the steps below:
Gently pull back the rubber cover to gain access to the mini-USB port located at the bottom of the SkyCaddie. Insert the mini-USB connector of the supplied wall charger into the mini-USB slot.
Plug the wall charger into the AC wall outlet. While charging, the charging indicator in the upper left-hand side of the SkyCaddie will show red. The charging indicator will switch to green when fully charged. You may also notice the unit's screen turn on and off periodically.
The battery will charge, even with the SkyCaddie turned off. A full battery charge may take 4 hours. Once fully charged, expect 36 holes of continuous play.
Warning!Always connect the cable to the SkyCaddie first before connecting to AC power or PC USB.
Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time you are viewing this solution post. Thank you for choosing FixYa to solve your problem. So you have connected your Nanomax iPod to the computer and it's not charging like it's supposed to, and you want to know how you should charge it properly? There are two ways you can charge the battery - charging via your Dock Connector to USB Cable, or the Apple USB Power Adapter (which is sold separately). Here are the step by step instructions to charging your and Nanomax.
Using the Dock Connector to USB Cable
Using your Dock Connector to USB Cable, plug the dock connector end to your iPod and plug the USB end to your computer. Make sure the computer you are using has a USB 2.0 port (check your computer's technical specifications to see if it's USB 2.0 certified). Most USB ports on the keyboards of laptops do not provide enough power to perform charging activities. If you have a Docking Station, plug the docking connector into the station and placed the iPod in the station as well.
Make sure your computer is fully awake and not asleep (meaning in sleep mode).
A fully charged battery takes 3 hours to complete. An 80% charged battery takes an hour and 30 minutes. The battery is charging when it shows the charging icon (a battery not fully shaded in green, with a lightning bolt).The battery is done charging when the "fully charged" icon shows (a green-shaded battery with a 2-prong plug showing).
When you are done, disconnect the cable from your computer.
Using the Apple USB Power Adapter
Connect the Alternating Current (AC) Plug Adapter with the power adapter (if connected already, skip this step).
Using your Dock Connector to USB Cable, connect the dock connector end to your iPod and the USB end to the power adapter.
Plug the power adapter into a polarized wall outlet or surge protector outlet.
I think you connected everything correctly, but the USB port on your computer did not have enough power to charge your battery. If that's the case, you will have to find a computer that has a USB 2.0 port on it (like a desktop PC or MAC, or a car adapter charging device) and connect to it, or use the USB Power Adapter (sold seperately). I think this pretty much answers your question. I hope this benefits you the best way possible. Once again, thank you for choosing Fixya as your one-stop solution spot for your problems. Have a good day, evening or night; whatever time you are viewing this, and visit us again the next you need assistance troubleshooting.
The battery will not charge when the device is turned on. Make sure that when you connect it to your computer via its usb that you do not turn it on otherwise it wont charge.
The annoying thing about this device is that when you connect it to your computer and turn it on, on the LCD it will say "connecting via usb" and the memory bar will show that it is fully charged, however the battery is not. This must just be a design flaw as the battery won't be charged.
Just remember to plug it in and leave it, do not turn it on!

1. Connect the player to the PC.
2. Make sure the computer detects the player.

Have you tried replacing the battery. Wont charge? Sometimes if the battery is totally depleted even the charge light will not go on until the battery reaches a certain level of fill. Are you sure it isnt charging? A new battery will confirm its viability to be able to deliver service in future.
Hallow Dear, As your explanation about Battery issue simply I’m advising you to replace your battery with original one. But before that there is one thing that you can try it out. ---Use your laptop until battery goes down & shutdown automatically then remove the battery and try to discharge it completely with small bulb manually When it’s on completely discharge (0 Volt) keep it on Outdoor Sunlight about 12 hours. After that connect it to your laptop & recharge it completely (until Computer LEDs showing you as Fully Charged) ****** REMEMBER DO NOT TURN ON YOUR LAPTOP****** Until its Showing you as fully charged That will be nice if you can check Battery Voltage & Amperage manually as it is charged fully before turn on your laptop. (if not you can give more charging time accordingly) This will not solve your any component (thermal fuse, vRegulate) problems inside your battery but will increase your battery Cells Life and most vStoraging problems on Cells inside your battery Thank you & Best Regards Dinu….
Well, it needs to charge via USB on your computer, so plug in your zen into the computer with the creative usb cord, and let it recharge. It may not necessarily turn on if it's really out of battery, but you can tell its charging when the switch you use to turn on and off, and hold, the light is blinking. After sometime, your Zen screen on the upper righthand corner should show a little battery and be blinking green what stage it's at in its charging. When its done charging the battery icon with be fully green, not blinking, and have a little plug icon inside of the battery icon to indicate that it is fully charged--takes a couple of hours to charge.
If that does not work, check your USB cord to make sure it's not damaged in any way. If it is, you may need to purchase a new one for better connection. And if that doesn't work, then you might need to replace the battery altogether, which I'm sure, if you are still in your manufactuer's warranty, they can do for you. After it is replaced, your zen should be good as new and ready to operate.
Possible failed battery showing fully charged but actually not -or even charger.No reset]
Disconnect from the wall socket- re connect and tell us if the battery is now charging.
If show full- replace battery.
Also tell Sony customer support
