I have a clipzip with a (Sandisk) 32GB memory card, bought for me by my wife in October. It usually works great and I listen to a lot of audiobooks on it and I’m generally very happy. Today, however, I tried to turn it on, and after showing the Sansa logo for ages, it decided to go back to sleep. I didn’t think anything of it - plugged it in and left it to charge, but nothing happened.
I’ve tried various power sources, reset with the menu/on button trick and nothing’s worked.
Now, I’ve removed the microSD card and plugged it into my PC, which doesn’t recognise it. Holding down the power button for about 20 or 30 seconds will show a screen which reminds me of tartan - a lot of multicoloured vertical and horizontal lines which vanish the second that I let go of the power button. This will only work if plugged into my PC, otherwise nothing happens.
Any thoughts, oh wise people of the Sansa community?
