Use volume + method:
These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
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.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

Liebert gxt2-10000t230 low batt,bypass light flashing,no output,shutdown after a minute

Test outlet power by switching the unit to manual bypass and breakers off.
If power is supplied OK and the filter board repaired OK then restart the unit starting with the breakers supply to unit,battery confirm the display is on and static bypass led also on then switch back the bypass knob to normal and press the on button to switch the unit to normal.
Give the batteries time to charge 12hours then you can test the unit on backup mode.

Battery

If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Not charging when it says charging

I was going to suggest a recalibrate might do this

with some machines run the battery to flat then fully charge at full charge shutdown and reboot windows.

With some machines the same thing is done as follows:
Enter the bios and disable the automatic shutdown for low battery. Disable the automatic shutdown for low battery in Windows. Run the laptop until it just dies from the battery going dead.
Charge the battery. Re-enable the automatic shutdowns.


And I believe some even have options in the Bios to recalibrate.

If this doesnt work then could be a voltage issue in the charger (is it universal with voltage settings?)
if it is this and no settings that could have been moved to wrong voltage etc, then maybe need testing and replacing.

Hope this helps

"Battery Is Too Low System Shutdown"

The battery has come loose from the contacts on the inside.

Remove the back (4 screws), remove the battery and put it back in securely.

Then charge it for a couple hours.





Best of Luck.
