As best I can tell and recall, SanDisk announced the Clip+ just under a year ago, on August 31, 2009.
For those of you who might be having a problem with your Clip+ but don’t still have your purchase receipt, you should be covered under the original at least 1-year (in the U.S.) warranty even without a receipt, at least until the 1-year anniversary of the player.
If you need warranty assistance, best to telephone SanDisk about it this week, as soon as possible and before August 31. In the U.S.: 1-866-SANDISK (726-3475). And other SanDisk contact information: http://www.sandisk.com/sandisk-support/contact-us.
