Details: Sansa Fuze 8GB black v2, purchased maybe 2 years ago or so.
What is happening? It keeps turning off, then back on, then off, then on, then off, then on. I’ve updated firmware, I’ve formatted, I’ve went with old firmware and newer firmware, I got lucky (where it stayed on for about 15 seconds) and was able to quickly reset it via the Fuze itself. Nothing! It turns on, and off, and on, and off, and on, and off.
When I plug it into my computer it stays on…most of the time. Occasionally it will just shut off, but it usually does a good job of staying connected for a good 5 to 10 minutes before refreshing itself.
I think the battery is just dead, I mean it says it’s fully charged but when I take it out and browse it for the 10 seconds I have (before it shuts off), my battery reads as half-full.
So trash it?
