Death of the Sandisk

My MP3 player has been working just fine since i bought it less than a month ago, and I've taken really good care of it. Tragically it refused to turn on today, and my attempt to revive it by connecting it USB style to the computer failed, as it didn't even register anything as connected. I don't have the packaging or the warranty anymore, and I don't know what happened, or what to do with it. Help?

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? Regardless of that result, disconnect it from the computer, then put a brand new alkaline battery back in, and see if it will turn on.

I had 2 of these e140's, both less than 2 months old with the same problem. ie, would not turn on, and could not be seen by the PC. Removing the battery and holding down the power button as recommended worked for both machines. Thanks for this solution

Hi, I bought a pair of sony bubble ear buds less than a month ago and was really enjoying them, but the left earbud has gone completely silent. I take good care of them and don't ever play my music...

its probably not the earbuds just that it seems all sony mp3 players have a problem in which the left side contact in the jack (the hole that the earbuds plug into) goes bad had this happen on the third player so far .

Why won't it turn on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Recovery Mode:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Doesnt work

If you bought your mp3 player less than a year ago or if you bought a warranty then just contact sandisk and they will fix if for you if they can and if they cant then i think they will just replace it for you.
