I haven't looked in the manual for this one, but it seems to me that you can
make it boot differently with holding both the power button and either the
up arrow or down arrow together.
I would think that even if the battery was toast, it would power up from the
USB cable.

Subject: Sansa Clip+ won't turn on

Hello folks

I'm having a bit of trouble with my dear sansa clip+. I found RockBox 2
years
ago and immediately loaded this wonderful firmware and been using and loving
it
since then.

Two weeks ago, while I was listening to an audiobook it turned off
automatically. No worries, sometimes it does that with some buggy mp3s. I
started it again, heard the normal click when it starts up and nothing, no
image
no sound.

I tried reseting it by pressing the power button for 30 seconds and nothing,
not
even a click. I connect it to my computer, and it doesn't show on dmesg, not
even on lsusb.

I left it for two weeks, unplugged. Yesterday I tried starting up again and
nothing. So I
left it plugged in to the computer for 2 hours, still nothing.

Now that I have some time to spare I tried opening the case. The battery
shows
3.51 V between the red and blue wires, and 3.78 V between the red and black
wires. While plugged with USB the voltage between red and black goes to 3.83
V.

Connecting a microSD card doesn't seem to change anything, it doesn't show
the
any paritions/disks with fdisk -l

Anyone had a similar issue? Should I try to desolder the battery? Is there
anything I could try to diagnose or recover? I really miss my clip.

I've been listening the audiobooks on my wife's kindle but it's not really
the
same, and I can't find any stores that sell Sansa Clips.

Thanks for any help and everyone have a nice weekend.

Pablo
