On my old Sansa clip with version .01, when I charged the battery the display showed the little battery simulated charge in the right hand upper corner of the screen as it appeared to “pump” up the charge graphically, letting me know the charger was working
Eventually, the display went black, but alas after a while the little battery would show full and all was well.
Now I have another Sansa clip with version 35 on it.
Let me add I am using a DC wall charger, not the computer.
When I attempt to charge it, it goes in to this MORONIC connected, writing LOOP and eventually appears to cut off, but It can charge all night and when I turn it on the next morning it has actually DISCHARGED and is now DEAD.
Sometimes I can get it to charge like the first described unit, by yanking the charger cord out and filpping it on and off and it will not enter the MORONIC loop and will charge by the little battery pumping on the dsplay and it will actually CHARGE. This is “hit and miss” though. Sometimes it will charge a while and the MORONIC loop will start back so I have to do the yank and insert and flp the on/off switch to get it back charging again. Is the old version available still? Can you shoot the person responsible for screwing up the charging program? I don’t think there is anyway to fix this but if you know where I can get the old software and revert back to it I’ll use it forever. Thanks!
