This is my first message and this unfortunately already an SOS.
Last week, i have found out my old sansa clip v1 from 2008 with, of course, no more battery, with native sansa firmware*. After a week end, i reached the conclusion that i could use it in my car wish has an usb port for external usb stick.
At home, plugged on my smartphone charger, it was working like a charm !!!
Then i decided to install rockbox on it. I restarted it and could see the wonderful logo of rockbox. Let me remind you that my sansa clip has no more battery; i mean absolutely no juice. I was searching through the menu to change the language, when suddenly sansa clip switched off (~20 seconds after rebooting).
I restarted it with the power button, but again, after 20 seconds, sansa clip switched off.
Absolutely no way to maintain it switched on.
1st solution : Staying with my sansa under rockbox firmware >> Is ther a special setting I could activate to fix my problem ?
2nd solution : Migrating back to native Sansa firmware >> So I tried to remove the bootloader with rockbox utility, but after 20 seconds sansa clip is automatically ejected and disappear from windows explorer.
*as there is no more battery, only solution to record new settings (radio station, language ...) was to activate the timer (10 minutes); without this trick, brutal unplugging device made all my settings lost at the next boot
