If you've been having problems getting your Sansa Clip MP3 player to power on, chances are that the battery is dead. Since this battery isn't readily accessible, replacement will require disassembly of the unit. The good news is that you can open your Sansa Clip and replace the battery in a few minutes.

  1. 1

    Power off your Sansa Clip and insert the tip of your case-opener tool in the gap where the front half of the unit meets the back half.

  2. 2

    Work around the sides of the unit until the two halves separate. Set the back half of the unit aside. The silver battery is visible sitting on top of the motherboard.

  3. 3

    Lift the battery from the bottom to expose the thin battery cable connected to a port on the side of the green motherboard. Unplug the battery cable.

  4. 4

    Lift the battery out of the unit and set it aside.
