My SanDisk 4.0 will not turn on. I plugged it into the computer to add music and the blue circle light is on but nothing else works. The light will not turn off either.

Try to reset your SanDisk Sansa as follows:
1. Press and hold the Power/Menu button for about 20 seconds. 2. Release the button. 3. Press the button again to try to turn it on.

I had this same problem. What I ended up doing was going into My Computer into the device itself and seeing what showed up. It appears a few new songs I popped on there the day after were appearing but nothing else. I deleted all the files, unplugged it from the computer and let the library update, old songs were still playing. Plugged it back into the machine and voila they showed up.

Very hot = not good - replace the player

For laughs, 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.

Press and hold the power button for 20 seconds to "reset" the device. If that doesn't work, you can call Technical Support to resolve your issue.

Mp3 player wont play songs or anything


Only 2 suggestions here: 1) Make sure your HOLD switch is not enabled. 2) Try to update the firmware If neither of these work, time to send the unit back to Sandisk

Mp3 sandisk big problem


Try to press the menu button until it turns off and then try to update your firmware to the latest one.If you can go to settings try to go to MSC and format your device using My Computer(it might be that the songs your transferring are not of good quality). If you cannot change to msc do this steps that work for a friend of mine, Slide the hold switch so it will be showing the red color (dunno if its red or orange) then press the record button then the power button until you see on the screen welcome to recovery mode. Go to the sandisk website and download and install it to your computer, when it has been installed and it is saying connect a device hooked your player to the computer and see if there are any updates available for the device.

I hate blue


goes off because the backlight is on a timer. after 20 seconds or so it turns off if no buttons are pushed. if the player will still play music but nothing shows on the screen, then the display is shot. The screen is not replaceable on these players. sorry, but it's most likely junk now. You could use it as a data storage device still. Best bet is to buy a used player off ebay or amazon.
