I have a strange problem.
My Sansa Clip 2GB felt on the ground. It was nothing to me, it wasn't the first time. It was turned OFF. Few hours later, I decided to turn it on - I couldn't.
I thought that, the battery was out, so when I came home, I plugged it to my PC. I got the connection without any problems. It started to charge - "It's OK" - I thought. But few hours later - I unplugged it. And I still can't turn it on.
It works, even play music, when it's plugged to any source of electricity, I can transfer files without any problems, but I can't turn it on, when it's unplugged.
Any suggestions? Maybe someone know how to open the cover and get to battery?
Sorry for my English - It's in poor condition, but I do my best/

Unfortunatelly, I've tried it - it doesn't work.
The funny thing is that - the "reset" works, when player is plugged, but it doesn't when it's not.
Thanks for trying to help me

As you probably know, the case is not made to be opened. However, people have done it--you may want to do a search in the Clip forum at anythingbutipod.com for posts where people have done so.

Fortunatelly, I've opened it, without any damage, probably I am the first
But, as we thought, the black wire is unplugged. Any ideas? The solder is necessary?

Any chance that it's just the on/off switch that's broken?

No, the switch works when the player is plugged. Now, I have disassembled player (without damaging it - "I am the mastah") - two of the wires - black and red aren't on their places. I mean the wires between the battery and the player. I am afraid that the solder would be needed - what would be very hard, because the wires and the places for them are VERY small. Am I right?
