The reason it turns on when you take the battery out is that it is expecting you to upgrade the firmware from www.sandisk.com

The player is probably bad, but either the device is bad, the pc port is bad, or the software is faulty. Try connecting to different usb port, then a usb port on a different pc with a compatible os. If still not recognized, then there is physical damage to player.

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.

Hello there!

Please make sure that your battery is full or it is connected to ac adapter properly. Try to remove and install back your battery, then turn it on, then observe. If you face the same problem, you have to recheck the power button that might causing it.

If you need further assistance, please let me know.

My hp pavillion laptop won't start at all whats wrong?. It hasn't been dropped.


Remove the battery and the AC adapter then press and hold the power button for 30 secs. Put back battery and plug back AC then power ON as normal.------

Also try with ONLY battery (AC removed) and vice-versa.--

Basically I would check output of my AC adapter first. If everything is OK with that, I will check the power button.
---- This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Camera doesnt work, got as a gift about 6 months ago and took out


1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. 2. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera. Please make sure that you are installing a fresh/ fully charged battery c. Without the memory card, turn your camera on. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty) 3. Please test with the a different battery If you do not have access to another battery Try these steps instead: Please take the battery out of the camera. b. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the battery. If you camera doesn?t switch on you will need to order a No power repair or a new cable. This camera has an auto lens. Which means it will focus automatically every second, which makes this clicking sound. You can turn this option off: 1: Go into the menu 2: Chose option Cam Settings 3: Switch AUTO focus to single lens and click OK.

My Acer Aspire 9300 laptop wont turn on......light indicators are on (motherboard light blinks once, light bulb and battery lights on) but no power to fans so no start up. have had this happen before but...


Very possible that something has short circuited on the motherboard. I would also try re-seating the memory located on the bottom of the laptop(which could be loose explaining the intermittent nature of the issue). On an IBM I once fixed that had the same issue I took out the CMOS battery and battery for one week and then re-installed and that fixed the issue. But good luck to you!

My sony cybershot dcs-s700, it has new batteries, but the power button flashes green and camera will not stay on, and you are unable to magnify. Whats wrong


Hi!

Remove the Battery from the Camera and clean the battery compartment using a soft cloth. Then, press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Then, reinsert the Battery pack and turn ON the Camera. Please make sure that the Battery is fully charged. If the issue persists then the issue may be related to mechanical failure and service will be required.

Charging problem.. Wont charge battery


The instructions for installing a new alternator usually read to fully charge the battery (12.3 - 12.8 volt range). Otherwise, the alternator will be damaged when it initializes. I have seen some extreme damage result from installing a new alternator with a low-charge battery. The torque required to turn an alternator when damaged in this scenario is unbelieveable!

Screen dont turn on.


Try with the battery disconnected from the laptop. This happens sometimes due to a bad battery or a bad battery charging circuit.
