Plug your SanDisk into the USB with NO Battery. After you take it out, install battery and it should work.

    This method didn't work. USB sees it and the files on it are visible on the desktop. But interestingly, Win10 fails to eject the device, just had to unplug it. So I tried the other solution I've seen, took out the battery and let it sit about 10-15 minutes, then put in a new battery - and it booted.

Alright heres what i tried. I took out the battery and pluggend it into my usb cable and apparently it turned on but when i first put it in it flashed the light once then went off so im thinking that the battery had something to do with it. Before i put it into the usb port, without the battery, i tried just taking out the battery and puting it back in later. Hope this helps.

Take out the battery for 5 minutes to reset it. Straight the guy at technical support that I spoke to at SanDisk.

I don't think it is your battery. I had the same problem and it took me all day to solve it. I had to attach the player to my computer and reformat it. After that it worked fine.

Another thing I could suggest is to check the 'Hold' switch on the bottom, if it's in the locked position you won't be able to turn it on, it'll just pop up with a message saying 'Locked' and go back off again, this message only lasts a fraction of a second but if you see it you just need to move the Hold switch the other way. (The body actually doesn't say which side is 'lock', but when it's locked there will be red instead of the normal gray behind the switch, also the 'Locked' message described above when you press a button.) This might not be your problem, but I know that a lot of people go through their player being unresponsive only to find the lock switch is set to 'locked', and that 'Locked' screen really is easy to miss, especially if you're not looking for it (which happens with a player whose buttons you know by heart). Hope this works for ya! :)

Well it depends where you are, are you in New Zealand? Try reseting the player if it has one other wise take it to an electronic shop to get it fix.

New battery and new alternator,you are looking for a open fusable link,If all are good you maynot be looking at a charging system, start the vehicle at idle, leave it running turn on the light and use the battery gauge on the car and turn the lights step on the brakes (vehicle in park) does it stall then, If it does then you are looking at a charging system can you exhange the battery and can you get the alternator tested from an outside source or better yet uses a voltmeter and read the charging system the battery at charging will need to be 2 volts above battery

Does the Verizon logo flash when you plug it in? I had this same problem. Take the battery off. Plug the phone in. Observe the flashing logo. Put the battery back in. Observe "Charging..." screen. Power on. Unplug. Good to go.

Ipod died

Depends how adventurous you want to be. It's most probably needs a new battery but could be a number of things. It's a matter of trail and error to work out what the error is. I would advise trying a new battery and if that doesn't work sending it or taking it to a repair center.

Battery draining fast

I would check the alternator again, it apparently isn't charging the battery with engine running. You need a volt meter or amp meter to test this. Also does the battery discharge when the car is not running?

Camera won't turn on with new batteries or power cord

I heard from another posting on here and the answer, that someone took fine sandpaper and cleaned off the terminal ends of both battery and camera and blew out the dust particles from that before replacing the battery, then then camera worked. I have yet to try it with my Kodak camera that is 2 years old and suddenly died too! The batteries are fine and work in other cameras.
