Hi, I experienced the same problem this morning, my sansa player (e280, 8Gb) froze in the middle of a song, the screen went blank but the wheel still had its blue light on and i didn't know how to fix it bur then i figured how. If that's the case with your player too, then the solution will be to press and hold the power button till the blue light goes off (abt 8-10sec) and then just restart the player. It should work.
Try restoring the firmware, WARNING, this will wipe everything
Press and hold the power button to boot off the ipod, when it's off, press and hold both the home button and the power button for 10sec and release only the power button while continuing to hold the home button, this will put it into restore mode. Connect it to itunes and i tunes will restore the firmware wiping all data and that passcode.
try reseting it. then resyncing your ipod. to reset it, simply push the middle button down, and the menu button at the same time. a few seconds later and the ipod should reset. then sync the song that had the problem onto the ipod and see if it works. (no point in syncing all your songs becuase if reseting it doesnt work you wasted alot of time syncing songs for nothing)
mp3 players have to uncompess digital sound in other words you can get 300 mp3 songs on a 700 meg cd or just 11 to 16 on a regular uncompressed music cd like you buy at the store.
screen turning blue might mean a failure of some kind...consult your manual. the player if like Ipod has a hard drive in it that constantly fails what i heard if not its more like a memory card like sandisk and that should work great but take it out and clean contacts with rubbing acohol.
all else fails it might be built to throw-away like most of this cheap crap.
