If you have a phone charger with the same connector, plug in you Clip and leave it overnight. This will fully charge the battery. There is not enough power from the USB port.

Battery life draining overnight


Try disabling everything you can through the software, if not possible, unplug them. Then plug one in at a time and leave it overnight. If its OK in the morning, plug in the next item, and so on. Make sure battery is fully charged between each test. When the unit discharges overnight again, the last item you reconnected befroe it discharged is the one causing the voltage drain.

Sound works for radio not for music volume is up music is playing no sound from any headphones


Did you try plugging in a different set of headphones? If other headphones work, maybe you need new headphones.

Try playing music from your Sansa through the computer, while it is tethered. If you can do this, it may mean that the audio amplifier part of the Sansa is broken-- Usually this means, 'get another Sansa.'

Also, try gently wiggling the headphone plug to the left and right, while it is plugged in. If you get music on and off, its possible that the headphone connector on your Sansa has a broken connection. This is a VERY difficult problem to fix (without breaking or melting something else inside the case) and also usually means it is time to get another MP3 player.

How long does it take to charge the battery


  • The battery takes roughly two or three hours depending if it is pretty much dead or has a little charge left in it or not. It's not very long considering the use they get put through. It won't hurt to leave it plugged in overnight either as it has an auto shutoff.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Sansa clip mp3 when switching on show the following message "not enough space for music DB please free 30Mb"


You don't mention what type of PC you manage your clip on .. but if it is a MAC

Plug the Clip in via USB

Click on the Sansa Clip listing on the left
- Not the disk itself, the DEVICE.
Click the 'Partition' tab
Under Volume Scheme, choose '1 Partition'
Click the 'Options...' button
Choose 'Master Boot Record', then click ok
Click the drop down next to 'Format:' and choose "MS-DOS (FAT)"
Click Apply
(Thanks to Pardsbane over at the anythingbutipod forum)

When this is complete, you can eject the disk if needed, and your clip should be back to normal.
You will probaly lose all music files when you do this.. but at least you will have your Clip back to a functioning device

If you have a Windows based PC
I suggest you first have the Sansa Updater installed or become familiar with how to manually update
Plug in the Clip via USB
Go to My computer
Delete one of the music files within the Music Folder
Close all
Test the clip
If this doesn't fix it..

You should reformat the drive
You will lose ALL music audio books stored on the drive
In My Computer Right Clik on the Sansa
Clik Format
Clik OK
When Complete run the Updater
Now try to place a album or song via WMP on the Clip
Test the clip before putting more music on it

Hope this helps

With a Sansa Clip+ only work with Rhapsody? I don't want to have to pay for an account and then also pay for the songs as well.


No, Sansa players work with many types of music files and computers.
You may want to post details about your computer-- Mac, Windows, or Linux?
Also, what computer software do you use for music-- MediaMonkey? Windows Media Player?
Assuming you are using Windows XP--
You may already have songs on your Win XP computer, in Windows Media Player. If so, you can synchronize your player with Win Media Player-- This will load all the songs from your computer onto the Sansa, space permitting.

You can also copy files directly to the Sansa player, just as you copy files to a flash drive:

1) Configure the Sansa Player as a removable drive.
With player unplugged, go to Settings > System Settings > USB Mode
Select MSC

2) Plug the Sansa player into your computer.
The computer will recognize it as a flash drive, and will assign a drive letter.

3) Open Windows Explorer.
Find the directory on your computer that contains music files.
Copy and paste music files into the Music directory on your Sansa player.

4) Using the green arrow, bottom left on the system tray, safely shut down the Sansa player.

5) When you unplug it, the player will spend a minute or two updating its files.

6) Your music should be available to play.

If you are running things on a system other than Win XP, please post more details--
Someone may give you a more exact solution.

Best of luck!

My Sansa Clip lost all the music I had stored. It


You go to Settings, check System Info, check number of songs in there. If they are existing, you should change to MTP or MSC to play it. Or go to Settings, Reset All, Yes. Try it.
If you accidentally formatted it, can't restore them.
Good luck

Sansa clip sandisk 2gb won't charge. Thought it was low and after plugging it in to computer overnight it wasn't fully charged but worked the next morning but suddenly died. Now it won't charge. Sansa...


I had the same problem this morning, albeit with my 8G Clip. Nothing worked -- the thing seemed dead as roadkill -- until I found a link about "forcing MSC mode." Basically, it told me to hold down the center button while plugging my Clip into my computer using my USB cable. Suddenly, boom! It's awake and alive and happy again. I'm unsure how that works, but that did it for me.
