Probably a hardware/power supply issue (would require a replacement), but you can try my soft fixes:
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.

Can't get sandisk sansa fuze+ to turn on, what do I do


Hold the on/off slider for 30-40 seconds and then release to reset the device. Then try turning it on. Also, sometimes if the battery is low/dead it will take longer than 3 hours to charge up. If it does not turn on after the reset you might try letting it charge for a day or so and try again. If it doesn't work after all of this, it should be returned to where ever you bought it for a replacement.

Sansa Fuze went dead after charging; dropped about 18'' onto carpet earlier, but saw no problem until after charging.


sansa fuze mp3 players are notoriously pieces of ****. they malfunction randomly, and most of the time, unfortunately, cannot be fixed. i have experienced this first hand. even though it's actually a problem with their software, or the hardware in it. my advice is seek third party repair help.

Sansa fuze 2gb wont turn on or charge


Mine did the exact same thing, (Even the going to bed thing) I'm glad you posted your question. Incidentally enough after trying to turn-off and on for ten minutes, I pressed all the buttons a whole bunch to show it my frustration.....then it worked. (?) I don't know why, but I think that the computer going into hibernation or shutting off affected it.

My sansa screen went white


Try resetting the device by holding teh power switch in the ON position for about 15 seconds, then while it's OFF, slide the power switch DOWN to the HOLD position. Now for the tricky part, let's force a manual MSC connection. Press and hold the center button while plugging in to the USB port. Let us know if the screen lights, and the battery begins charging in this mode. If it's charging, let her charge for a while to give the battery a chance. Then, open a Windows Explorer window. I like to use [Windows key] + E, or go to My Computer. See if the Fuze appears under "devices with removable storage". If it's communicating, you have the options of formatting the device and reloading the firmware.
