yesterday i was listening to music as usual when suddenly my 'brain' turned off. Battery was something about 80%.
Now it wont turn on again. Even PC does not recognize the clip ( there is a bling sound when connecting but thats all. clip remains off - screen doesnt show connected icon ). I tried reseting at least 60 times in different time spares, holding power button 10 secs, 60sec and even more but nothing happened. Also connecting it to the PC in MSC mode (spelled well?) didnt work ( i held middle button and connected, also did multiple combinations). So i did everything + i checked that battery is well connected inside.
Please help me i cant imagine saturday without my brain

The only thing I can think of is to let the player sit for a week or more so that the battery drains completely. It may seem dead but it's probably just in a frozen state with a dark screen. Kind of like in a coma. Then plug it into a power source and leave it connected for a couple of days and then see if it'll start up again.
How long have you had the player? If you bought it new, you may be able to get a warranty replacement from Sandisk if you can't get it to working again.

try installing the firmware.
I have had other players go deaad and revive when I reinsalled the firmware.
Might be worth a try:
Turn on the player with the power switch and hold the menu button firmly for 10 to 15 secs.I don't know why but that worked on mine!
