SOURCE: sony walkman won't turn off

That's what all Walkmans do. They only seem to go into standby when they say power off. Batteries drain anyway, but maybe it is being switched back on accidentally, so you need to turn the hold switch on. Even then, it is not properly switched off, it just stops things happening like music starting to play. I find this very annoying too.

I have a SanDisk Clip 2GB that is about 2 years old. When it is not plugged into a power source I cannot turn on the player. When it is plugged into the car adapter, it will turn on and play. While it is...


When your player is connected to the car stereo it is simply acting like any USB source.. your car stereo is not writing to it or exchanging information.

When the player is hooked to the laptop or any pc it is acting like an external read write drive.. data is being exchanged.. so the buttons are disabled on the device.

Chances are the rechargeable battery has failed. This unit does not allow for replacement of this battery. It can still function the way you are using it.. but not on it's own. When you attach it to either car stereo or laptop the unit is getting power via the USB connection.

You can try a reset to see if that helps.. Slide the power button up and hold it for 20 seconds.. release.. and try to power on again.

Update the firmware..

I hope your battery has not died..they last a long time.. but not forever.

Best of luck

C150 as not working what's solution?


1

Check the orange "Hold" switch on the left side of the Sansa C150, if you cannot turn on the MP3 player or if none of the buttons is working. When the "Hold" switch is up, the buttons are disabled. Slide the "Hold" switch down to activate the buttons again.
2

Press and hold the "Power" button until the LCD screen lights up when turning on the MP3 player. Pressing the button quickly does not turn on the device. The "Power" button is located on the front of the device, under all the other control buttons.
3

Replace the AAA battery, if you cannot power on your MP3 player. To replace the battery, remove the battery cover from the back of the device by pressing in on its tab and pulling it off. Remove the old battery, insert the new battery and replace the cover. One AAA battery provides approximately 15 hours of power for your Sansa C150.
4

Change the backlight settings to conserve battery life. This is useful if you find the battery loses power quickly during normal use of your Sansa C150. To change the backlight settings, choose "Settings" to bring up the "Settings" menu. Select "Display," "Backlight" and then a shorter backlight time. The backlight will shut off after a period of inactivity that matches your backlight setting.
5

Review your music purchases to understand what rights you've purchased to the content, if you are unable to play a track back on your Sansa C150. When you purchase music, it comes with certain rules for how you can store and play it. You may not have paid for the right to transfer the song to a portable media player.
6

Reset the Sansa C150 if it acts erratically or if you have other problems. To reset the device, open the "Settings" menu and choose "Reset All." Choose "Save" to finish restoring the MP3 player to its factory default settings. If you decide not to reset the device during this process, select "Cancel" instead of "Save."

It shut off.


Turn it on by holding in the power button - it is normal for that model to go to sleep while it is playing, as a powersaving feature - but it shouldn't stop playing the music, the screen should just go away. Usually pressing any key will wake it back up.

Player shuts itself off


There could be a damage or corrupted file in the sansa clip. I suggest to reformat the player. To reformat the player. First turn off the player. Then slide the power switch down it will be showing red, now press and hold the center or the middle button on the player while connecting the player to the computer. It will be detected as a drive on your computer, now right click on it and choose FORMAT, make sure the file system is FAT32 then click start to continue formatting the player. This will erase or remove all the songs on your player but this will fix the problem that you are having

My scandisk sansa clip mp3 player is fozen at the refresh database screen


I actually called the 800 sandisk number and the guy was helpful (after some annoying personal questions).
Unplug from your computer
Turn off the device.
Push the button down to be in the "Hold" position
Press down on the "center" button (inside the circle)
While still pressing on the center, plug in the device.
Now you should be able to see the device under "My Computer"
Right click on it and FORMAT --YOU WILL LOSE ANYTHING THAT WAS ON IT! But you will be able to use it again. I was assuming all my stuff was gone, it was just copies from my computer anyway.

This worked for me and now I just have put my music back on it.

Hope this helps everyone else! And don't hook it up to a MAC!! Even just to charge it!
