I have had my clip for a while now, not sure how long but certianly a year.
Well i have never been that happy with it. It seemed to decharge a lot and a couple of times it just stopped dead and would need the USB cable to be reset.
Well yesterday it finally stopped working alltogether and i can’t say that i am surprised.
I have tried to hold the power button for 20 secs, 1 minute, 5 minute and what seemed like forever. I plugged it into a computer and an AC usb and left it for hours but still no joy.
The only thing that is good about it is that it is still functioning as a usb stick but it won’t switch on and thus can’t work as an MP3 player.
I have read elsewhere that 0people have had issues with them and i am afraid that the sound quality and price do not outweight the poor reliability of this device. I will not be buying another Sansa as a result. Oh well i moved away from an ipod but that worked for 5yrs without any failure, it is a shame that the clip wasn’t nearly as reliable!
