Question about SanDisk Sansa m260 MP3 Player

1 Answer

'No Files' on display

Hi,

I bought my m260 a few months ago, it was reconditioned but seemed as good as new, and although without instructions it was mostly working fine.

From the beginning I had a niggling little problem, which was small enough to ignore.

Now, however, the player has become useless.

A few weeks ago it started not being recognised by the computer when I plugged it in. Occasionally it IS recognised, but any music files I add do not function properly on the player.

Last night I tried again to try to add a new album. The computer on this occasion DID recognise the player, I transferred the album, but since I unplugged the player, every time I switch it on it shows ‘No files’ on the display!

Have I lost all my files?
Does anyone know if there is there something I can download to remedy this problem or is time to get another player?

If at all helpful- the problem I used to get was that certain albums would seem to ‘freeze’ the player. For example, if I selected ‘Amy Winehouse’ from the menu, it wouldn’t play, and whichever button I would press the only thing appearing on the display was ‘Amy Winehouse’.

I’d be grateful for all suggestions, but please bear in mind I’m not all that technically-minded!

Thanks,

Rebecca

Your files should still be there, if you connect the m260 to your pc with the usb cable, you should see them in Windows explorer.

The worry with reconditioned devices that utilise flash memory is that sometimes the flash memory can be corrupted. You should fully format the m260 glash memory and try again. I think they only did a quick format for you in the shop which wasn't enough.

I had to replace the battery in my 08 mustang three months ago and after a few weeks is died. Took the car battery to Auto Zone and was told that the new battery was not good. Now this morning my ca


I suspect either a bad voltage regulator (should show up on the alternator test) or something is draining the battery when off. Draining a battery below 12V can cause un-repairable damage to a battery although if only a few weeks old you might try to recondition it with a reconditioning charger.

I would love to have the PDF of the Correcting Selectric II instruction manual. Thanks so much for offering this as a free service. You are great!


Ebay is your best bet for this one! I've found manuals for many older devices there, including a 100 year old cash register. You may have to add it as al "alert" it there's not one listed now, but I guarantee there will be eventually, and if you utilize the alert system Ebay offers, you'll be notified when one is listed for sale. Good luck!

plastic with a rubber boot. unless these connections are clean you may get all sorts of malfunctions with switches,lights and electric
motors. Symptoms are similar to a failing battery, something to start with..

I bought a TI-30XA months ago. I liked it so much


Hello,
I do not know what to say. Since you seem to have a problem seeing the decimal mark, it may reduce the guessing if you use the scientific display format, which is always one digit, decimal mark, additional decimal digits, exponent. With this format the decimal mark is always at the second position (if there is no - sign) and at the third (if ther is a - sign). But if you are reluctant to use it there is no solution.

Hope it helps.

Hi there. it sounds like the blue ray drive has failed on your ps3.I take it that sony repaired your old one or sent out a reconditioned unit? If it is still under warranty get them to replace it again and insist on a 12 month warranty. i am on my 3rd unit now and because its a 40 gig model which they dont make anymore i am having to do with yet another reconditioned unit. hope this helps.

Phone keeps dropping calls


Same issue here. Have you checked the battery? I found out that on mine the battery was leaking and corroding the contacts. Need to call Panasonic to find out if they can do something (about 5 month old phone)

You may have accidentally dropped water into the grinders. Email me your email address and I'll send you grinder cleaning instructions.

 

If the grinder cleaning does not work.. You may have to have to machine serviced.

 

Please include the model of machine and that you would like the grinder cleaning instructions.
