My sansa clip is frozen on the blue flower


One issue that people experience with the Sansa Fuze player is that the screen turns white when they are trying to use it. If you experience this common Sansa Fuze MP3 player repair issue, you need to reset your player. Hold down the "Play" and "Power" buttons for about 20 seconds. The player should automatically reset.
MP3 Player Freezes

Another issue is that the player freezes. You may see lights on the player, but it won't do anything. Follow the below steps to correct this issue:

1. Use the above steps to perform a hard reset.

2. Turn the player back on, and slide the "Power" button upward.

3. Use the USB cord that came with your player, and connect it to your computer. Only connect your player directly to the computer. Don't connect it to a USB hub.

4. See if your computer recognizes that a device was connected to it. Or, look in "Devices and Printers" folder, and see if the device shows up in it.

If your device doesn't reset, and the computer doesn't recognize it, contact SanDisk for additional assistance. Or, you can attempt to repair the device yourself.
Repairing Internal Components

If your Sansa Fuze player is out of warranty, you can attempt to repair internal components. This is an "enter at your own risk" solution, but you may be able to fix the issue. If it doesn't work, or if you damage another component, you will most likely need to get a new player.

1. Shut off the device.

2. If you don't have one, purchase a case opener tool. This is a tool with an extremely small head that is used specifically for opening up small devices.

3. Place the head of the tool in the seam of the device, and rise up the faceplate. Do not do this forcibly, or you'll break the ribbon cable connected to it.

4. Remove the ribbon cable from the faceplate.

5. Examine the battery cable. If this connection is loose, your Fuze player won't turn on. Plug the connection firmly into the port.

6. Check the LCD screen connection. A loose connection here means that you can't see anything on your screen. Disconnect the cable from the port, and reconnect it.

7. Reattach the cable to the faceplate, and reattach the faceplate. Turn the device back on.

These Sansa Fuze MP3 player repair suggestions may not fix all issues. If your player is still not working properly, either take it back to the place where you bought it, or contact SanDisk for additional help.

I just got a SDmicro 2G to 'add on' to my MP3 player Sansa e200. I have inserted the card and got the reading: "Refresh Database". I do not have the owners manual anymore so I am not sure how to do...


You don't have to do anything. Just wait and let the Sansa refresh its database. It shows a progress bar to indicate progress.

The whole center turner doesn`t work anymore ,i think i need to buy a whole new middle button


If the dial doesn't spin, then unfortunately your Fuze is physically damaged, and will need to be repaired.

If the dial stopped working on its on, versus not working due to physical damage inflicted by being dropped, abuse etc., and your player is less than one year old, it is covered under SanDisk's warranty service. Email support@sandisk.com to ask about this. They will probably want you to provide proof of purchase (showing date and place of purchase and name of the reseller).

Ipod touch got ran over need to repair or get new one. Have a 2 year service plan and i've had it for a year


Is you service plan from Apple or is it from a store like bestbuy? If it you only have apple care then they will not do anything for you, they only cover defects, and rarely even cover that. If you have a warranty from say bestbuy you will be able to bring it in and get a new one free of charge.

Sansa clip for MP3 music only, cheap & lightweight with great sound- better than the bigger Sansa 250 I bought. I love my 30GB Zune, but it isn't available anymore- I lucked out and got one of the last ones for $99

Generally I don't like players that are tied to a subscription or 3rd party affiliations like the Sansas I bought from Bestbuy. But then I have about 1,000 rare vinyl records from my old school DJing days- so I don't care to buy the tunes I already have and use a hardware device to convert my tunes to MP3 and load them from my pc or burn them to play on a MP3 disc player.

Most players seem to have subscription shovelware installed, so there's no getting around that. but some are worse than others
such as the Sansa 250 2GB from BestBuy that I ended up removing the BestBuy version and reinstalling a clean Sansa firmware. If I would have bought the same unit with out all the promotional **** on it I would have enjoyed it and used it more and not wasted my time uninstalling and reinstalling the firmware.

It was a mess- the "radio" downloaded a bunch of **** that nearly filled up the whole memory so there was no room for the MP3s I actually wanted to load. The 'free' subscription only lasted a short while and I was unable to delete from the menu without being connected to the pc (this was restored by uninstalling the promotional version). I didn't use it everyday and found myself unable to listen to the MP3s without "renewing their licenses" on the days I decided to listen to it. After uninstalling and reinstalling the clean firmware I regained functionality.

My recommendation is to get a name brand player after you try them at a retailer to decide which suits your need best for screen, weight, size, capacity & budget. Look for one that is expandable with a microSD card since the cards are swappable and capacity is getting cheaper everyday- much cheaper than buying a new player with more GB. Then shop for price and the subscription bloatware on the units you look at. Don't overlook online retailers like NewEgg etc.

Please-Don't waste your money on a GPX anything or some other off brand that will fail within a week if you ever can get them to work at all. You know the saying "you get what you pay for?" - well, wiith GPX you get much less than you pay for.

Sansa Fuze wont work with home stereo


The Sansa doesn't play music through the USB port. You can connect the Sansa to your stereo via the Sansa's headphone jack.

Sandisk "fuze" mp3, plays but the screen is blank.... yes would be covered by warranty


is it still covered by warranty? do you see anything on the screen for example if you place it under a lamp, do you see anything on the screen? that would mean the backlight is faulty.

you may have a faulty backlight or loose connector. If you got warranty that will cover the fix.

Sansa SanDisk c150 won't turn on!


My Sansa also failed to turn on. But what happened to me was that I unplugged the USB while it's connecting. After that I cannot sync with my computer anymore, so I tried turning it off and on couple times and at the end the whole thing won't turn on anymore. I talked to the SanDisk tech. You can try what he told me: take out the battery; press and hold the power button for 45 sec (this will drain the power in the capacitor...they call it "soft reset"); then put the battery back in and try to turn on the mp3 player. That didn't work for me. I just bought this a month ago so i guess because of the warranty, they will send me a brand new one. I hope this help.
