Won't charge when plugged in to USB


Often the problem is the USB cable or the plug.

Make sure the USB cable is plugged in firmly, all the way on both ends. If it still does not charge, try using a different USB port on the computer or laptop. If that fails to solve the problem then get a new USB cable.

If none of the above solves your problem then your device is defective.

My sansa when its connected to my computer comes on works syncs and everything so as i disconnect it from my computer it' s dead and wont turn on


Three possibilities;
1) You have a dead battery because the battery is no good.
2) You have a dead battery because your Sansa is no longer charging the battery.
3) You have a dead battery because you didn't leave your Sansa tethered long enough to charge it up.

When you have the Sansa c250 tethered to the computer, you should see a tiny yellow lightning bolt flashing, and a battery icon that shows the amount of charge on the battery.

If you see the lightning bolt, but the battery does not charge after being tethered to a working computer or charger for 24 hours, you may need a new battery. You can get one on Amazon.com. Here's a link:
http://www.amazon.com/HQRP-Replacement-Battery-Universal-Protector/dp/B001NZ981S

If you see the lightning bolt, and the battery charges after 24 hours, AND your player works when unplugged--Problem solved! You just need to let it charge for a longer time.

If you do not see the lightning bolt when the player is tethered, and the battery indicator shows "empty," It's likely that the internal plug to your Sansa c250 has broken. Your Sansa is no longer able to charge the battery.

If you happen to be an electrical engineer, or otherwise have a shop full of electronics equipment (including signal injector, volt-ohm meter, needle-tip soldering iron, and stereo magnifying goggles with work lamps) you may be able to fix it yourself. Otherwise, forget it-- your Sansa is dead.

If it's still under warranty, try to get it replaced. Failing that, it's time to get a new MP3 player.

Hope that helps! Please post a message to let others know what happened to your Sansa player.

How long does it take to charge the battery


  • The battery takes roughly two or three hours depending if it is pretty much dead or has a little charge left in it or not. It's not very long considering the use they get put through. It won't hurt to leave it plugged in overnight either as it has an auto shutoff.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

I plug my sansa clip 2gig into a ps2 to charge with a usb cord and it looks like its charging but when i take it off the usb cord the battery is still dead


The internal rechargeable is obviously not retaining the current: if the device is around 18months or has been in heavy use (around 500 charges), the Li-Ion/Li-Polymer battery is well past its useful life and needs to be replaced. It may of course be really defective! Unless you can perform this delicate operation yourself, the cost to replace the internal battery may not be justifiable.

SanDisk, 2 GB Sansa mp3 player won't charge


I was having the same problem with my Sansa e250. My wife has the e200, and we didn't have any problems with that. I saw that someone on here suggested to lock the mp3 player with the tiny metal switch on top, so I did, and the battery charging icon on the bottom of the screen came on and stayed on, and the mp3 player worked. thanks!
Because of this I would suggest checking to see if it's locked or unlocked and then change it to charge it.

Dead e280


remove the battery from the player this will not void the warranty of the player. Readjust the battery position and hook it back up to you player and turn it on. If it turns on connect the player back to the computer and charge it for 4 hours.

Sansa e250 - Won't power up unless connected via USB


Sounds like the battery may have come loose. Remove the 4 screws on the back, remove and reinsert the battery. Charge the device for a few hours. Best of Luck.
