Default Clip+ 4Gb won't start, stuck at logo

When I try to start my Clip+ the flower logo appears, but nothing happens after that. I can reset by holding the power button, but after starting again, I still have the same problem.

When I connect it to my computer it either does not recognize it at all, or sometimes tell me "You need to format the disk in drive H: before you can use it". I cannot run chkdsk on the drive, windows tells me I need to format it first. Formatting the drive does not work.

That last time I was able to start the player, the titles of the audio files looked corrupt(some of the characters were replaced by randomly). When I tried to turn it off, it froze on the "goodbye" screen. I haven't been able to start it since then.

Searching google and this forum hasn't turned up any solution. I am out of ideas, is there anything left I could try?

I had this happened to me yesterday and was able to fix it.

1)Turn On.
2)If it freezes, turn off by pressing power button and home button simultaneously for 20 seconds or until it turns off.
3)connect to usb and see if it gets recognized. Hard-turnoff and retry again if not.

I was able to get it recognized and reinstalled Rockbox. I could turn-on and turn-off and use the player normally but sometimes it's not recognized has Sansa Disk Players, shows up as unrecognized device. We'll see how long until it craps out.

Thank you for the reply.

Unfortunately this does not seem to work for my device. I tried it multiple times for several days, my PC just wont recognize the player.

I have since given up and bought a used clip+ on ebay as replacement. Such a shame that the series was discontinued.

Mine got stuck again, gave up. Was able to save the batteries for other projects and am now in the market for another Clip+.
