My Sansa automatically turns off when its turned on

Whenever I turn my sansa on its just turns right back off.  Its fully charged, when I plug it into the computer it will turn on then turn off then the computer will turn it back on and just off, on, off, on and so forth

You could try resetting the player by holding the power slider in the up position for at least 30 seconds. If that doesn't help, then I guess the next step to try would be to format the player using the player's menu)settings, system settings, format) which deletes all the songs on the player, then copy the songs to the player again. Before copying the songs to the player again, you should run chkdsk/r on them to find corrupted files.

I wonder if you might have a stuck/damaged power switch?
