My sansa fuze won’t turn on or off. To turn it on, I tried holding the switch in the up position for 15 seconds, then a minute, and even longer. When I connect it to a computer, it turns on and works. When I disconnect it from a computer, it stays on and works, but I can’t turn it off by pushing the switch up. When I push the switch down, it locks like it’s supposed to and shows the lock graphic. It’s like the switch up position isn’t working. I installed the latest firmware but that didn’t help.
Hate to say it, but it sounds like the switch has worn out. Might be time to find a new player.
