wheel wont spin

I have a Sansa Fuze 8GB and I am having problems with the wheel getting stuck - there is nothing blocking it from spinning

Unless you got some ‘gunk’ underneath of the wheel like pocket lint and/or spilled Coke or something, I’d call SanDisk Tech Support about getting it replaced under the 1-year warranty.

These Fuzes aren’t designed to be taken apart so you can clean or otherwise repair the wheel assembly like their predecessors, the e200 series were.
