Question about SanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player
When your player is connected to the car stereo it is simply acting like any USB source.. your car stereo is not writing to it or exchanging information.
When the player is hooked to the laptop or any pc it is acting like an external read write drive.. data is being exchanged.. so the buttons are disabled on the device.
Chances are the rechargeable battery has failed. This unit does not allow for replacement of this battery. It can still function the way you are using it.. but not on it's own. When you attach it to either car stereo or laptop the unit is getting power via the USB connection.
You can try a reset to see if that helps.. Slide the power button up and hold it for 20 seconds.. release.. and try to power on again.
Update the firmware..
I hope your battery has not died..they last a long time.. but not forever.
Best of luck
