i was using my SanDisk yestrday and suddenly it shut off. I replaced teh batteries just to make sure but it wont work. I also tried connecting the the USB but my PC wont show any connection to the SanDisk.
I fond no reason for it to simply "die". (kept it in a safe place).
Here is information I used from another user of this product who had this issue
Here is a fix I got from Sandisk support:
Let's try this: take
the battery out of the player and wait for a full 5 minutes. While the
battery is out, please hold the power-on button for 10 seconds. After
that, connect it to your computer (without the battery). Does it work when it's connected to the computer?
of that result, disconnect it from the computer, then put a brand new
alkaline battery back in, and see if it will turn on.
another thing I found that worked once, was to remove the battery, hold
the power button for 5 seconds, then replace battery. The unit powered
up after that.

hi, i believe the Nokia phone is not dead but the battery of the Nokia phone is dead. you have to replace the battery of the phone with a new working battery. just open the back of the phone remove the old battery and replace it with another battery. then after doing this, switch the phone on. thanks. for using fixya
Hi there.. I believe that you are one of those very active and busy type people who are always on the move. The general reason I believe that you fone is behaving this way is because you do not allow your fone to charge properly, therefore limiting the lifespan of the battery.
My advice: -try and drain you battery dead until you are unable to turn it on at all.
- secondly,charge your fone till it says fully charged.
-thirdly, when using your fone you can either 1). repeat the previous steps and this time drain it by playin music or 2). try using it with caution..
-lastly, next time you decide to charge your fone make sure it is dead/off till you charge it.It should last you a good 2days if all goes well.
These steps can help you prolong the life of your battery and save you $50 to buy a new one..
There are few reasons your SanDisk Player is acting up. Here are some things to try out.
Make sure the HOLD switch is turned off before you power up your player. This will sometimes cause errors in booting.
If that doesn't work you can try a soft-reset by holding the power button down for 15 seconds then try turning the player on normally again.
Finally, if you are brave enough, you can take the battery out of the player to force a complete reset of the player and battery. This is done by taking the four screws out of the back of the player and removing the battery. After 30 seconds, put the battery back (be sure the it is seated properly) and replace the screws.
It could be just a coincidence...but lets try a few things...
Remove the battery and unplug from the wall. Hold the power button on...and then plug back into power...after 8 seconds release the power button. Once your computer boots to desktop...shut down...and replace the battery.
Changing the harddrive should have anything to do with teh battery...
See if your battery starts charging after this trick.
