This problem is a mix of these following -wheel lights up but not screen -freezes -and........once it gets in this stage it cannot be able to load up music and the computer cannot read the sansa and will not show up on computer now heres the problem many people have run into the problem about the wheel lighting up but not the screen and they have solved it by turning it off (holding on button 30 sec) but.... this time if the sansa won't be fixed after u restart it well... u got yurself a master problem..... oh! and don gimme that lame ass idea about leaving the sansa runing and on and on.....because it won't be fixed after u recharge it..... i guess thats all the problems....... oh well ummm the last resort to do is to return your sansa DO NOT!! I REPEAT DO NOT!!!!!! return your sansa in your first thought thank you for listening METALLICA RULEZ!!!!!!

How do you make the scroll wheel turn again?

Your wheel may be stuck because dirt has worked its way into the wheel.
I have 3 ideas--
1) Get a can of computer duster, and try blowing the dirt out from around the wheel, outside and inside edge.

2) Sansa Fuze user 'tenzip' suggests dipping the player, while turned off, in DISTILLED water, if you believe the wheel has something sticky and water-soluble-- THEN let it drain, THEN put the player in a bag of uncooked rice for up to a week. The rice will pull the rest of the water out of the player.
Full discussion may be found here;

3) If 1) and 2) fail, you may want to try opening the player, disassembling and cleaning it, and then putting it back together. Directions with pictures can be found here;

Top Load Ultimate Care 2 Just below the lid in

This problem is commonly caused by a water inlet valve (also known as a mixing valve) leaking by. If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, sediment, rust or calcified deposits can accumulate in the inlet valve and cause it not to close properly. Usually when they start leaking, you need to replace them. The following link explains how to access and replace the valve:

If the model number is correct, the part number for a replacement valve is 285805.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Song tracks are mixed up on My Sansa Fuse.

What you should do is open the music in windows media player and check the tags and make sure that are all the same. Because SanDisk Organizes by those tags (ie: Artist, album)
