That's better . . .
Internal disconnected battery lead (or something very similar). Un-repairable. Take it back or contact SanDisk directly about a replacement if it's less than 1 year old.
Which btw, is what I suggested in your other duplicate post here.

If you're outside the warranty period to get a replacement from SanDisk, you could try prying the Clip apart and then resoldering the loose battery lead back to the battery or gluing it back with conductive epoxy. Others have reported success with this. Note: you have to be careful in prying the 2 halves of the Clip apart; a thin piece of plastic could help, starting to pry apart at the on switch--there have been various posts on this (you might want to do a search, using the box at the upper left).

I also have a Sansa Clip. It would be an excellent choice for audiobooks if it charged correctly. I have 6 PCs including the one at work. it only charges on one of them. On that one, plug it in, connected shows up on display and stays up. Unplug it an hour or so later and you have have a charge that will last a couple of days. If I plug it into any other machine, connected shows up on the display and goes off a few minutes later. When I unplug it the clip is dead. I can plug it in with a partial charge and when I unplug it an hour later, the battery is dead. This is repeatable on any of 5 of my PC's. Needless to say I just use the PC that charges it. I feel for people who do not have a wide variety of PC's to try.

I don't seem to be able to charge my sansa clip. Could I get some help? I have hook it to my PC with the sansa clop power on and off. I don't know much about technical stuff so please help.

What's the "sansa clop" and what does "sansa clop power on and off" mean?
Try a different USB cable and try a different USB port; if you have a laptop, try a port at the back of the computer rather than the front. Plug directly into your computer, not through a USB hub.
And you can try charging via a wall outlet, with a USB AC adapter.
Does you player still play when not attached to your computer?
