Re: My Sansa clip+ won't turn on what so ever

Leaving it plugged for 2 days didn't help Smiley Indifferent I have to throw it away.

Leave it alone for a few days, as Saratoga suggested. Believe it or not, this sometimes works.

And sometimes leaving it plugged in and not in use for a few days (2-3) can help--the trickle charge gets the player up and running again.

Re: My Sansa clip+ won't turn on what so ever

Dude. I don't know if I've ever been so relieved. At first I held it for a minute I'm like "it's not working.." so I let go of the button and sat there. And I decided to try again and it turned on right away!

So it will take 3-4 hours to fully charge? Man. But thank you SOO much for helping me!!!!!!!! I've NEVER been happier!

About 3 hours to charge it--the battery icon on the player's screen will show as full.

 

Congratulations!   Smiley Happy

Re: My Sansa clip+ won't turn on what so ever

I am having the same problem.  Was playing it earlier, turned it off, now it won't come back on.  Tried the reset options multiple times and nada.   This seems like a recurring problem for this device.

just wanted to add that my player would not reset until I removed the micro sd card. It reboots then put card back in no problem.

Re: My Sansa clip+ won't turn on what so ever

Oh, thank goodness. I've had it for a year or two with no problems. I charged it overnight, then my kids messed with the computer, and it wouldn't turn it on anymore. After I held the power button down, I had to do it again a couple times. It seems good now.
