I’ve been enjoying this Sansa Fuze that I bought off a friend, which has better battery life than the 1st one I initially purchased (used)
Anyhow, the scroll wheel is working fine, but the buttons are becoming less responsive and now sometimes if I just want to navigate to a different folder I have to press and HOLD the button down until it finally responds or keep tapping it and hope it takes me where I want it.
As you can imagine, this is very annoying. I have started using it in my car through an FM transmitter and aux cable. When it won’t respond well in the car that’s just a bad situation to mess with. I’m 17 myself and I can’t believe people SERIOUSLY text and drive. I always try to keep my eyes on the road.
So, what is the verdict here? The connection getting dusted up/worn? My last issue was the battery which apparently is near impossible to replace without damaging the entire player itself. Go figure. But that was my last player.
Any chance I could take it apart and try to clean it out? I don’t really know how to safely take it apart so I could do with some help there.
I don’t want to have to purchase another player. Though I like the fuze’s design, I feel like even then these things don’t have good battery life and if it dies like mine probably will within a year or two, it’s useless. Seems the life is very slowly decreasing on this one as well.
Just an annoying defect and I don’t want to end up braking it because I can’t navigate to anything.
