Re: Sansa Clip Not Turn On

If this is one of the orginal Clips (round scroll wheel, no SD card slot), they were prone to faulty solder connection on the battery leads. If your player fires up when connected to your computer or a power source, but shuts off instantly when you unplug it, it sounds as if this is what might have happened.

If the lead to the battery has come undone, it is possible to carefully pry open the case and either re-solder the lead back or use conductive glue to glue it back.

Still sounds like a disconnected battery lead (see above), if it works fine when connected to a PC or power, and then powers off immediately when disconnected.

Just proceed slowly and carefully, to avoid any damage to the case (a guitar pick or credit card can be used to pry the case apart) or the internal wiring, which can be very delîcate.
