Locked Out of MP3 Player

Help!!! I am locked out of my MP3 Player and I can't get the player to work. Each time I try and turn it on, I get the message "KEY HOLD!" and it immediately shuts off. I've tried repeatedly to slide the HOLD button toward the PLAY/STOP button as recommended in the manual, but to no avail. I can't get the player open. Is there something (anything) else "I" can do to get the player to work? Thx, Jack

    TTM77,

    Ok, I've tried all of the suggestions you've made and .....nothing. I removed the cover (not suggested if it voids your warranty)and found that the buttons were operating fine. I connected it to my computer with the USB cable and it still doing the same thing - the hourglass appears and just stays there until I disconnect the cable. Any other ideas out there???

    I got rid of the SanDisk player over a year ago and moved on to a bigger and better player. I have a Philips 2Gb player that has pics and music. It is a much better player and has a wonderful sound quality. Thanks for the reply, but I since moved on.

Most things with "Hold" button don't turn off the device. So I surspect there might be a deeper problem. You could try to check the battery see if it's still good. As last resourt, you could try to open it up and see if some how buttons are permanently pressed. You could even try to power it on without the switches. Most of this MP3 players (the small 1 that uses only 1 battery) are pretty much self contain so there shouldn't be anything wrong.

Key locked system shut down

On the top of the player there is a slider. When it is showing orange next to it your player is "Locked" so accidental button pushing wont mess up your tunes. Slide it over so it shows only white instead of orange and your player should be just fine.

Locked up sansa

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

Locked up

Look at the top of it, there is a switch saying 'hold' switch it in the opposite direction. The button is used so it does not turn on automaticly. When you have switched it, turn it on. It will work!
Good luck!
