Re: Battery

I'm having the same problem! I've had my Sansa e130 for exactly one year today. I loaded new music on it last night and when I tried to turn it on, it said "searching internal memory for new music." I left it on and this morning it wouldn't come back on with new batteries or even when hooked to a computer! I sent an e-mail to the company for help since there is no reset button. I haven't heard anything yet. I suggest you contact SanDisk too. They may have a problem. And I can't believe someone actually suggested as a solution to put a new battery in it or hook it up! No duh! We're looking for real help here, not the obvious things to try.

Re: Battery

I had the same problem, stuck in a "searching for new music" cycle and tried resetting, etc. but did not work until I deleted two files on my sansa... Music.lib and Music.sec Once I deleted these, it created two new files and worked again. I believe that by deleting a file manually, it was trying to find it and couldn't. The "Music.lib and Music.sec" files regenerate and straighten out the problem.

SanDisk e130 - died after firmware upgrade failed

Try re-formatting the player (FAT) , run the upgrade, and format your 2gb card to FAT as well. Should work.

Get out the battery and let the device "calm down" without any source of power for 5-10 minutes. After that push the menu/start button, hold down for 30 or more seconds and holding down, insert the battery. It has to reset the power circuitry and should help.

My e130 wont turn on

Try taking the battery out, let it sit for a couple minutes, and put a fresh battery in the player. This is the equivalent to a hard boot and this is what was suggested to me when I had the same problem. Hopefully this will fix your problem.

Sansa e130

Does the battery need replacing? My screen is cracked and it appears the battery discharges quicker than normally. For now, I check the voltage on my rechargeables before installing them so that I know they are good. Try putting one song on to see if that will play?
