I just turned on my sansa to go for a jog and the friggin screen froze up! for the 3rd time! the light was stuck on so i decided to just wait for the battery to die but that didnt work so i took ur advice and pressed the power button. It did turn off and now its workin fine. Just sucks that this shit happens all the time!!

the bottom button turns of the screen as does the side top button but when pressed together and held for a time it reboots the unit
if it is not the same the do what I did
go google on another computer and type in ---how to unfreeze 7" rca tablet --- and read forums and other sites that may give you a clue as to how to do it

My sony Ereader froze. how do i unfreeze it?

Try holding the power switch down for 30 seconds and see if it shuts down. Hopefully after that it will just turn on again. If not, try leaving it until the battery runs down. Recharge and then start it up again.

Best of luck

Camcorder froze

Me, too. Flip Video support suggests removing the batteries for 48-72 hours to drain the camcorder of any "residuals."

No, sounds like your internet connection or DVD drive. Mostlikely the DVD drive. Check you disk too.

I had this problem a few days ago and now my sony nwzs18f has different problems, the way i got it to charge back up was by using a usb charger that plugs into a socket rather than into your computer this should hopfully charge it back up and also it should unfreeze the screen.
