I'm new to this forum but I have read the srting on Sansa Clip+ not turning on. I bought my Clip+ a couple of weeks ago and had it shipped to me in Dubai. After some initial frustration with loading playlists I got to using it and have found the unit very easy to manage.
However today my clip+ turned itself off during my workout (so I didn't get to see if the screen said anything) I don't know if the unit gives any "low battery" warning so I assumed that it had just run out of charge. I have had the unit on charge for about 2 hours now and it still will not turn on even while still plugged into my PC. I have tried re-setting it without any luck. I am not sure how I can send it back to the States under warranty so I am hoping someone out there will have some further suggestions.

Remember, after holding the power button for 20-30 secs, you must release the button . . . then press it agian momentarily to turn it on.

Thanks for the advise on how to re-start the Clip. Mine just turned off by itself in the middle of a song. I held down the power button for 30 seconds and it came back on once I hit the button again.

I had also read where others had said walk away for a few days. I was sceptical but now I am a believer. My Sansa was down and out for a week. I ordered another one. I picked up the old one and flipped the switch and it lit up. Amazing, after a week. Of course, it needed a charge but that worked as well. i now have a backup. Don't toss it yet.

I had the same experience however did not buy a new one. It stopped and seemed completely dead and not rechargeable using the usb connection. Pressing the on/of button for at least 30 seconds made it come alive again albeit with a lo battery, but immediately capable of charging on my laptop or in my car.
By the way I start to use it more and more as a car audio source.
Question: the audio quality with the original earphones is just great. How t bring that quality into the car audio system? The car audio system itself is a good one and not a limiting factor.

So in playing through your car's stereo system, it must have a clean and direct connection to where the stereo's amplification system will help it out. A USB port is best, an AUX IN jack second and FM transmitter or cassette adaptor distant thrid and fourth.
