sansa clip + 2gb will not switch off!

working fine then today i switched it on and now it will not switch off, tried reset, nothing, tried holding button for thirty seconds nothing. is it going in the bin?

Wll, just let it run down, and then after it shuts down, recharge it (and I’d reset it for good measure).  Hopefully, it’s a 1-time issue.

I’ve never heard of that before. Usually when you hold down the power button, eventually it will shut off resetting in the process.

If you have a memory card in it, try popping it out and see if that makes a difference.
