Hello janin906,

The battery for this unit (like many MP3 players) does not appear to be end user replaceable. A quick websearch shows that there are several companies offering after market batteries and battery installation services. If you are comfortable repairing electronics devices you might be able to sucessfully replace the battery yourself. However repairing a modern electronic device should not be undertaken lightly. If you don't have experience working with electronics I would recommend contacting SanDisk to arrange battery replacement.

Best Regards

How do you connect the sandisk to a bose radio?

Hi, Does the radio have any connections on the back. Perferably RCA or a mini jack
Now you still need a patch cord one with your Ipod jack on and an rca connection on the other which you can get at any electroic stores (radio shack or audio/ video stores). GOOD LUCK.

Will not charge

This is very common with all of SanDisks products. I myself have expereienced this issue with various SanDisk devices. You battery will only allow you to charge it so many times, (approximately 1,000) and then it start to loose the ability to charge and a new battery is required. All SanDisk MP3/4 players have the same issue.

After charging my sansa clip the unit will not turn on and I believe the battery must have died. How do I change the battery and where do I buy a battery

you should have some electronics experience before attempting a repair like this
rip off the black rubber back
if yours has screw righty tighty lefty loosey
if not cram a small screwdriver in very very carefully and break the back off without injuring yourself
than locate battery pack [looks like watch batteries
take battery pack to radio shack [might as well get good ones]
now do the above steps backwards
super glue or black electrical tape [i used that]
or if you really want to impress gray duct tape maybe you could even bedazzle the project?
really its a throw away product i got out the magnifying glass and read the very not-so helpful owners manual that came with my Sansa view
hope this helps please vote

Not charging

Try connecting directly to USB port on your computer, NOT a hub. It needs power to charge.

Sansa sandisk mp3 player 1 gig

Theoretically, you should be able to use this one forever, if you keep charging it. The battery isn't replaceable, so hopefully it will last you a good 3 years or more. The #1 threat to Mp3 players isn't the battery, but keeping up with software/computer environment changes. Most mp3 players introduced to date only last 1-2 years - much shorter than everyone had originally thought.

SanDisk - Battery issue

In that case I would recommend you to upgrade the firmware on the device...usually that solve the problems you are having...if you still having the same problem, try to see if sandisk can send you a different device....

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.
