Same problem. The light is on but nobody's home. My PC doesn't recognise the device. Reset 100 times, but makes no difference. Any other way to reset, perhaps?

Re: SANSA CLIP JUST STOPPED WORKING

same happened here...

it just stopped working.

than i have tried connecting on my pc and the windows wasnt recognizing;

than, i tried the wall charger -- nothing.

i tried the reset thing -- it's not turning on.

 

but now windows has recognized as a "4mb mass storage device that needs to be formated". but it is not turning on.

 

what now?

Re: SANSA CLIP JUST STOPPED WORKING

That meanst he firmware is corrupted, unless you were trying to modify the firmware right before it happened, its probably due to a bad memory chip.  RMA it.

Re: SANSA CLIP JUST STOPPED WORKING

I've had mine for about 3 months and think it's great - in particular the "hold recollection" - remembering where you are on whatever you are playing across several tracks, and the very quick fast forward - both useful if all you listen to are 2 or 3 hours podcasts.....

 

Anyway, it just stopped as the battery was low (during the Beatles "For Noone" on the radio show I listen to), and the screen was completely blank when I attached the player to the computer. I thought it was all over. But.... I read this thread, plugged it in again and held the Power Button for at least a minute (whilst I read some more of this), and when I looked again it was back on. It didn't come on after 30 seconds, so I'd suggest people hold the power button down for at lleast a minute or more before they give up on it (or  leave it to power overnight).

Thanks for the info.  A minute or more--wow!

Re: SANSA CLIP JUST STOPPED WORKING

A minute or more holding down the power button in my case - maybe because the battery was very low as well. So I'd suggest not stopping after twenty seconds if it hasn't worked by then.

Re: SANSA CLIP JUST STOPPED WORKING

If this happens a lot, then maybe Sandisk should think maybe there's a problem with the product.  YA THINK???
