So my son has a Sansa Clip Zip. He's not the most reliable (what 10 year old is). he "lost" his zip for a while and we recently found it. It will not turn on, nor will it show that it is charging. I forced it into MSC mode and that is when I was finally able to view what files are on it on my pc. Maybe the display is bad, but does anyone know if there is any way to make this playable when not connected to the pc (it won't play when connected, it just shows the files). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I have two Clip+ mp3 players. One of them appeared to be dead.
I had to hold down the power button for 1 minute, 3 different times before I could get it to power up. That was several years ago and it is now still working properly.

So don't give up it the first time doesn't succeed. Try it again in a few hours.

Also, if a computer USB port doesn't power it up, try an external charger similar to this to try and charge the battery.

It's dead. Thanks all. Hope the kids learns this lesson. My wallet sure did.

Let him buy the next one. He'll take better care of it by making sure he knows where it is and doesn't let the battery go completely dead/flat so it can't be revived.
