Re: Brand New Sansa Clip+ ? ... 1st Step: Remove Protective Strip Covering Screen

Smiley Mad   This is unbelievable!!!  I have spent the last 24 hours trying to figure out why the display on my new Sansa Clip doesn't work. I am in process of sending it back to Amazon, NOW I READ THIS!!!  

HOW CAN SANDISK BE SO NEGLIGENT AND LEAVE OUT THIS SMALL STEP IN START UP DIRECTIONS.

I am sure you are not alone.....  Going public with this on Amazon .

Thank you sooo much.   BN San Diego

With the greatest of respect:

 

I understand your frustration.  At the same time, it is not at all uncommon for a display of some type to have a clear protective film/plastic placed over it.  I guess that this thread indicates the wisdom, to SanDisk, of noting the protective screen protector in the user manual.  But I rarely have seen any manufacturer do so.

Thanks, Finkster. I had the same stupid thing. Would be an idea for the SanDisk people ro put it in the manual. Would have saved me a lot of time.

I thought the idea of the sticker was to show you what happens when the inevitable real freeze occurs!

I am so glad for your post.  I was going nuts trying to figure out what was wrong with my new Sansa Clip, and after I read your post and took off the plastic cover, it was all good.  I was ready to return the stupid thing. Thanks again!
