I’m going on a trip tomorrow on a plane, and I realized that all electronics have to be off during take-off and landing, but the problem is that I think the power button/slide on my Sansa is broken. I can slide it back and forth, but nothing happens. The only way I can turn it on is to connect the Fuze to my laptop and it only turns off during a specific amount of time. And now, there’s this red dot on top of the slide. I don’t plan on taking my laptop onto the plane since my mom won’t let me anyway.
I took a picture from my webcam (I apologize about the poor quality) to explain what I mean by the red dot; [link]
I’m not certain what caused this, but I remember there was this one time when the Sansa fell out of my pocket, and the slide didn’t work anymore.
It’s going to be a long trip and I’d really like to listen to music to pass the time, but I don’t want to make the plane crash or anything from leaving my Sansa on. I was thinking it didn’t matter since I always have my digital watch and Tamagotchis on, but I searched around Google, and I don’t want to risk anything.
I was wondering if there’s possibly a way to fix it manually or the only way to fix it would be to take it to the place where I purchased it and have them fix it.
