I bought a Sansa Clip 4Gb in February 2012. It has been working perfectly until yesterday when it died on me during a workout at the gym, with about 75% battery remaining. I plugged it into the wall to recharge it but noticed that the screen didn’t come on, like it does normally, when i plug it in. I tried swtiching the plug, and the USB connector, to no avail.
I left it overnight and nothing. I’ve just tried plugging it in via the USB to my computer, and my computer has come up with an error Code 43 on the devce. I have tried holding down the power button for 1 minute on teh Sansa, holding down the ‘enter’ (middle) button for 30 seconds, I have even tried holding down the middle button whilst simultaneously plugging the USB into my computer (all various tips from other forums). All have no luck.
I have even attempted to reformat the device (through my computer) but when it comes to it, my computer tells me it’s unable to format.
Is this the end for my Sansa? I can’t believe that it would die after just over 2 years…I don’t have any of the paper work anymore so can’t tell whether it’s even still in warranty??
Thanks in advance for any thoughts…
