Well, i'm having problems with my Sansa c140 also, but with this problem I think I can help, hook your mp3 player into your computer, than delete all the songs, and simply put them all back on, and if that doesn't work, than repost.

Could my battery be frozen? Do I need a new battery?

Your battery is not frozen. In cold weather, a weak battery--one that needs to be replaced--may not work. The cold makes an already weak battery even weaker.

Check your battery with a volt meter. When it gets cold, the plates inside the battery restrict the amperage needed on your car. Get a fresh battery to avoid the hassle. When the current doesn't flow thru the battery due to cold weather, not even a jump will help because its still almost an open circuit. Keep the new battery warm and install it in your jag. start it immediately to get it warmed up. Check your antifreeze level also. If you need it, only put DexCool in concentrated form during your climate chill. It will mix with the diluted antifreeze in the system anyways. Good luck.

Hi there - I wonder if you can help us, with the heavey snow today our 2 year old Kia Sportage wont move at all. After not using it all day our battery seems to be dead. I would appreciate any help or...

An good battery is not going to die from 1 day of not being used. And one cold day is not going to kill it either. Something drained it, I think you need to charge the battery and take it somewhere and have someone figure out what is draining the battery while the ignition is OFF. this usually turns out to be an anti-theft circuit malfunction which keeps locking/unlocking the doors.

1992 GMC Sierra Won't turn over

You either need to charge the battery, or you've got a bad battery. It's easy to power lights and radios, but turning an engine over, especially in cold weather, takes a lot of cold cranking amps (in other words, a fully charged and good battery.).

How cold is too cold for the S730?

Take the camera inside and let it warm up to room temperature. Get another set of brand new batteries. But first take out the batteries and let it sit for an hour. Without any power it can reset itself. The mini cpu inside is thinking its too cold and won't let it come on. After the one hour of sitting, put the new batteries in it and try to power it up. Cold weather can kill a brand new set of batteries in a matter of minutes. You should try not using your camera when its below freezing.

Olypus sp-500z Lens won't come out

If the batteries are cold or the camera senses condensation then it may malfunction. Let it stand in the warm room for 1 hour prior to booting up. cold batteries dont put out the same voltage.
