Just telephone SanDisk Customer Service and they should be able to help you.  And if the player can’t be repaired, it’s covered by warranty and SanDisk likely will send you a replacement (there’s a 1-year warranty in the U.S. on the Clip).

Here’s the contact information I found on the web:

1(866) SAN.DISK (North America)

7 days a week:
4:00 am. - 10:00 pm. (PST)
7:00 am - 1:00 am (EST)

Let us know how it turns out!

Have you tried resetting the device as decribed on page 7 in the Clip User’s Guide?
