clip failure


I have a Sansa Clip for 1,5 years now and it worked perfectly, but these days I have some problems with it.

The problem is that no PC recognizes the player.

When i connect it, the player turns on, showing: Connected, but the battery sign is not running, so it doesn’t charges the battery. I have tried it in MSC mode too, nothing. I’ve tried with several USB cables and several PC-s, nothing.

When the battery ran out, I connected it to an AC-socket with a charger of a Motorola Phone (it fits the player’s socket). It began to charge, the battery sign on the display started to show charging, but just for a few minutes, then it stopped again.

So I would like to ask for some help in this case.
