    Have you plugged your Clip in and let it charge fully? I have noticed that on a new or bad battery, the Clip will not start unless it has been plugged into the USB port in your computer. The port supplies 5 volts to the battery, which may be enough to get it started while it is plugged in. However, the case may be that the battery either cannot hold a charge any longer or has not been charged yet.

Ive researched it a whole lot, and what ive gathered is that this is a common problem, and all that there is to be done is call sandisk and ask for a replacement if your still under warranty. its most probably a lose wire in the battery, and as that cant be fixed, a new one is in order

My Sansa Clip won't work. When I turn it on it says: Not enough space for music DB Please free 30 MB. But when i connect it to my computer it doesn't register. PLEASE HELP ME


Because you drag 7 drop songs or files too much into the sansa clip in MSC mode, it causes like that.
Turn it on, it will show " Not enough.....free 30 MB", and then automatically turn off. Plug it into pc, open my computer, it will be under name "Sansa clip..." or "removable disk ". If your pc does not recognize it, unplug again and replug it.
Open Sansa Clip..., or removable disk, and delete some songs.
Good luck

Hey my sandisk sansa 2gb mp3 player will not charge and it is bran new how do i fix this


1) Try plugging it into a USB port on the BACK panel of your PC, and leave it there for a few hours.

2) Try plugging it into an AC adapter, and leave it there for a few hours.

3) There was a manufacturing problem with many Sansa Clips where the battery leads would detach from the battery. This would result in the Clip not being chargeable, and eventually it would only turn on when connected to a PC (which bypasses the battery). If this is the case with yours, you'll need to return it for a replacement.

I left my Sansa Clip MP3 Player plugged in while putting my laptop into hibernation. Now player does not response, I can't turn it on, and laptop doesn't recognize it at all.


    Complete Reset of Sansa Clip
  1. Step 1 Turn Sansa Clip on. Press the "Menu" (Home) button on the Sansa Clip.
  2. Step 2 Press the bottom of the scroll wheel until you reach the "Settings" screen. Push the center button to choose "Settings."
  3. Step 3 Scroll down to "Reset All," and select. You will be asked to confirm the reset. Select "Yes." This option will simply allow you to reset the language and location settings on your Sansa Clip. It will not erase data from the clip. To do a complete factory restore, follow steps 4 and 5.
  4. Step 4 In the "Settings" menu, scroll down until you reach "Format" and then select. You will be asked to confirm if you wish to format. Select "Yes."
  5. Step 5 Wait for the screen to say "Formatting Complete." You have now cleared all the files from your Sansa Clip and reset it to factory settings.
  6. Resetting a Frozen Sansa Clip
  7. Step 1 Unfreeze a frozen Sansa Clip by pushing the power button up and holding it for 20 seconds. Release it, and then turn it on again.
  8. Step 2 Go to the Sansa website and download the "Sansa Firmware Updater."
  9. Step 3 Select "Run" when the updater installs. (Installation will take less than two minutes.)
  10. Step 4 Wait for the Sansa Firmware Updater to run through its system test. It will ask you to connect the Sansa Clip to the computer to update your Sansa's software.
  11. Step 5 Connect the Sansa Clip and then remove it from the computer when instructed. If this process does not unfreeze your Sansa Clip, contact Sansa support at the Sansa Firmware Updater website.

My computer cant open the file in my e250


1. Plug the sansa into your PC. If Windows does not recognize the clip, unplug it, turn it off, and then put the clip in "hold" mode by placing the on/off switch into the hold position. Hold down the middle button on the Clip while you plug the clip back into your PC. It should recognize it.

2. From "My Computer", find the sansa icon and choose format. Note: this will delete all your music files on the device...

3. Download the firmware updater for the sansa
http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1376

4. Follow the instructions to update your firmware.

5. If you need additional assistance try calling Sandisk's tech support:

Hellllp


when you plug it in to the usb cord charger, and then plug it out, it turns because it maybe does not have enough energy to keep it running to your standard. so, when plugging it into the computer, if charging, leave it plugged in, and too find out the amount of energy left in it, go to start, then my computer, left click on where it says sansa clip 2GB, and click propoerties, and it will state the amount of percent charged, then thats tell s you to keep it in longer
