My Sansa Fuse + won't turn on at all

Today is my birthday and I got a Sansa Fuze +. I connected the player to my computer to charge. No problem. My computer reconizes it. I can sync as well. And it says “connected” on my players screen. Once I disconect the player from my computer, it goes black. I press on the power button for 15 secs - nothing. I press on it even longer then that - nothing. What am I doing wrong that this thing isn’t turning on? Please help! :mansad:

If it is connected to your computer OK, unplugging ti should not turn it off; it should remain on and (sometimes) go into database refresh mode.

If yours is shutting off when removed from a power source (your computer) there is a disconnect in the battery system. You need to return it for another one.
