Unhappy Clip + died

My clip+ died. It was playing and quit. I didn't have it locked but I never do. Anyway I hope to find my receipts to get a refund. I have'nt the faintest idea why it just up and quit, I plugged it into the puter and nothing, screen off and it's like it's permanantly off. Anyway since I still don't know what to get for a permanent player so I went to the sandisk site and ordered a Zip with that neat carrying case. Normally I'd give up on Clips but from all the threads on here I assume my situation is unusual. If anyone has had any similar experiences and figured out a fix, let me know as I can always give the plus away or keep it for backup.

Try leaving it plugged in for a while.....I had a player once I thought was bricked and a couple of days later I plugged it in for a while and eventually it came to life. No guarantees it will work for you but it's worth a try.

When it went off did you try to reset the player by pressing the power button and hold it for approximately 15 seconds? Also what marvin said, I left one of mine alone for a few hours and was able to connect to replace fw & rb later.

Thanks Walkgood. Held the power button and it came back on with a message to resynch with Rhapsody. Anyway it works. The bad news is I ordered the Zip already, the good news is I'm getting a Zip. Once I get the Zip in the mail I have a friend who might buy the plus off of me.Also I appreciate your reply Marvin, I had it on the charger all night and all day while I was at work. Who knows? It might've helped.

Hey, if money's not too tight, keep them both.

I'm considering that, money's not tight but don't know if leaving a player unused too long is a good idea. Besides if I decide to have two players, should have one with more features and keep the clip for riding. Still considering Ipod Touch, but by the time I make up my mind maybe Sandisk will replace or fix the Fuze+.I really want a player like the Nano a couple of years ago, the one with a camera. If Sandisk comes out with something like that to replace the fuze +, that'd be great. I could be wrong but I think new Clips come out in the fall and the Fuze+ came out in the spring so maybe my wait won't be long to see what Sandisk does.

Great to hear you got it working
If you friend doesn’t buy it, you should post it into our Classified forum, it should get some action there …
