I have a Clip’s that I play through a built-in car stereo with an Aux input adapter. I also have a USB charger to keep the Clip charged. For a few months it was working great. When I started the car, the presence of power on the USB port of the Clip caused it to turn on and start playing. I had Sleep mode set to 30 seconds, so 30 seconds after I turned to car off, the Clip would shut down.
I have not changed anything as far as I know, but now, when I turn on the car, the Sansa says “Connected” and won’t play until I disconnect the USB connection. There is no computer on the USB, just power (+5V and ground). Of course without the USB connection, the Clip is not getting re-charged.
Why is this happening, and how can I get it to play when power is applied to the USB jack?
