Try this: 1.First,
remove the battery. Then press and hold the "Menu" button for 30
seconds. This would cause the excess static electricity to be discharged
from the player.
Insert a fresh battery and try to power it on.
If it still doesn't power on, try the procedure again, but this time,
press and hold the "Menu" button for 1 minute. Insert a fresh battery
again and see if it would work. 2.Plug
your player in your computer and your Operating system should recognize
it as a "Removable Disk" and it will have a drive letter. Right click
on the M230 drive letter and select "Format". When the Format window
appears, just make sure to set the File System type to "FAT" and make
sure that the "Quick Format" option on the bottom section of the window
remains un-checked. Click start to format the player. Follow the
on-screen prompts. 3.Use this link from the SanDisk website to download the Sansa Firmware updater: http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/156/kw/firmware/r_id/101834
I fixed mine! I removed the four screws on the back with an eyeglasses repair kit and then took out the battery and waited a few seconds then put it back in and now it turns on and i didnt lose any songs or anything!
Try this, I bet it might work. And the battery is the big white thing that looks like, well, a battery. its really obvious.
Mine has froze a few times also, Remove the four screws on back cover and take out battery. wait just a little while and replace.... works for me ! Wish they would have put a reset button somewhere on player ( hummmm to easy..................
Try a hard reset.
Press and hold vol + and select for 20 seconds.
If that doesnt work, you can try holding the power button for 30 seconds.
Try to restart after either trial.
If that doesnt work, you can call support and they can troubleshoot it for you.

Best of Luck.
perform this step, press and hold the menu button for at least 30-45 seconds then wait for aroun 10-15 seconds before turning on the player. If it did not work, remove the battery from the player and adjust its position/connectors to the player. If again it did not work try using a different battery for the player it maybe your battery died out.
