One day, as I turned it on the device showed 0% battery and shut off despite the fact that the previous day it was at least on half life.

Probably best to call SanDisk Tech Support. If it's defective, they can arrange a warranty replacement (provided it is still within the warranty period).

Did you, by some unlikely chance, get it wet. I once heard of someone's car doing something similar, appearently because some computer chip was wet.
Tired of the Sansa Media Converter? Try Video4Fuze! It can create smaller videos than SMC, and is WAY more reliable!!!!

Well, too bad no one has responded further in the past 5 months. My player is now having the same exact problem as described by the original poster. Mine started while I was running - had the fuze in the rubber sleeve around my arm, and I was sweating, so perhaps there is something to the "getting wet" theory. No other answers???

If you think it may have gotten wet, turning it on and off could short it out. Don't do that any more.
Be patient and leave it alone to dry out.. Put it in a jar with some uncooked rice, to draw out the moisture, and forget about it for 3 or 4 days. Then try to turn it on again, connect it, recharge it, etc.

I doubt very much you're going to sweat enough (and on your arm especially) to short anything out inside a silicone or rubber protective case and the hard plastic casing of the Fuse itself.

I had this problem for a while, and tried wiping the switch with electical contact cleaner (Radio Shack) on a Q-Tip. That worked briefly, but the problem kept coming bck. Eventually, before I sent it to landfill, I tried squirting the stuff directly into the top of the switch slider. The stuff blew around a bit (cleaned up with a paper towel), but it fixed the problem.
