OLED always on when charging

Hello Everyone,

I apologize if these are dumb questions, but in reading these forums, I’ve come to discover the relatively short life span of the OLEDs on the Clip.

Whenever I charge my clip through my computer’s USB, the device displays the “connected” screen and the “SanDisk” screen alternatingly. My questions are as follows:

  1. Is there any way to charge the Clip without the OLED being on, and if so, how?

  2. If there is no means by which to charge the device without the OLED being on via USB, would a wall charger charge the device without the OLED being on?

Many thanks,

If you charge the Clip with an AC adapter the LEDs will be off. There are many posts about AC chargers in this forum.

Sansa may want the LEDs on when connected so you are sure no data is being transferred when you unplug the Clip.
