My Sansa Fuze won't turn on, even when connected to the computer.

My Fuze does not turn on. I charged it the other day and it was on. Today I wanted to listen to music and I turned it on and nothing. I called and they told me to try to reset it, connect it to the computer, nothing happen. I just bought it in Sept and took very good care of it. Has this happen to anyone else? It sucks now bc I have to listen to the radio when I drive and they play crap on the radio

Add me to the list.  I got a Fuze over Thanksgiving and it just died while trying to FF to the next song.  Power doesn't work.  I tried connecting with the USB cord and it won't work.

 

This is really lame.  What do we do to fix this???

I found the solution in another thread.  Hold the power switch in the on position for 15 seconds.  This resets the player.  Then power up like normal.

 

This would be good addition to the FAQ on the support site.

OK First off How do these problems relate to Sansa Firmwire Updates? I dont think it does, So You should have posted in the Fuze Forum. Secondly For those of you who have tried the reset and not had success, Plug it in and Let it charge for a while. And If that doesnt work, Move To the right forum, there you will get more results and help.

Okay final solution if the fuze wont turn on after you have charged it. And u know that u didnt soak it in water or throw it at a wall.    hold the power switch like you would turn it on,release after exactly 30 seconds then turn on normally.   I had the same problem and did this and it works Smiley Happy

Thank you, Soooo Much.  I got my Sansa around this time last year.  And it's my only escape from these so and so's at work.  So imagine in the midst of some childish jealous crap, I went to turn on my sansa, and it was just dead.  In just that 10 minutes I panicked about all the material that was lost, how I would recover. You save me- thank you soooo much.  I was just about to take out my 2 gb memory card, and smash it!!!Woman Very Happy
