Got the sansa clip+ 8GB today. Tomorrow it’s being sent back to Amazon for a replacement. Unless there is a magic fix anyone knows of.
I’m pretty sure it’s a catastrophic failure.
What I did…
Charged it, turned it on, investigated menus, set the date and time, lowered the display brightness a touch. Turned it off.
10mins later plugged in headphones turned it on, found a few pre-loaded audio tracks, played 10 seconds of the first, skipped to the second one played 10 seconds of that, skipped to the next track and the unit immediately died. No sound, screen blank, button pushes did nothing, would not turn on, re-charge did nothing PC didn’t react to plugging it in (not recognised as USB device) Very very dead as far as I can tell.
I haven’t tried a reset. I only found out about the method to do this after I’d packed it up ready to go back to Amazon.
Highly disappointed, any thoughts?
