Water brings minerals in with it, so you have some mineral short-circuiting going on; just take it apart and soak it again in DI water, perhaps scrubbing a bit with a toothbrush and working the switches, and seeing if you can't treat or replace the battery separately. Then you get to dry it thoroughly (e.g. under the sun and a layer of cotton) and see if things have improved, and reassemble if it has. Don't forget to remove any micro-SD flash media in disassembling, that interface can sap power too.
The works are all solid state and the display module sealed pretty well, so you should be fine. Not to say you shouldn't grab a Zune 2 as well...

Yeah, water damage = irreversible; everyone on this forum who has ever dried out their mp3 player failed to get a player that worked 100% of the time - call the manufacturer, Sandisk, and see if you are eligible to get a replacement - don't mention the water damage

Can I use my Sandisk Sansa C240 while it is charging?


This is normal when the Sansa is connected to a computer. You can use it while charging if you connect it to something else. For example, you might have a cell phone with a USB charger that plugs into a wall outlet. You could connect the Sansa to it, and it would let you listen while charging.

Not charging


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

How to I start the c240 up it My computer doesnt


On Windows XP, when you open My Computer, the Sansa C240 shows up at the bottom, under "Other". Because of DRM restrictions, you cannot copy media files to the C240 using Windows Explorer. You have to use Windows Media Player to sync playlists to the C240 (WinAmp can do it also).
I also suggest that you check out RockBox. It's an alternative operating system for portable media players and they have a version for the Sansa C240. It will give you some additional functionality.
As far as I can tell, to copy files to the microSD card (if you're using one) you have to use a media card reader, then insert the card into the C240.

Sansa c240 battery issue


Does it indicate that it is fully charged? If it does, I would return it or have it replaced. You have a 1 year warranty from SanDisk. SanDisk Technical Support 1-866-726-3475 If not, try using a different USB port on the computer, preferably one in the back. Best of Luck.
