Question about SanDisk Sansa e140 MP3 Player
My MP3 player has been working just fine since i bought it less than a month ago, and I've taken really good care of it. Tragically it refused to turn on today, and my attempt to revive it by connecting it USB style to the computer failed, as it didn't even register anything as connected. I don't have the packaging or the warranty anymore, and I don't know what happened, or what to do with it. Help?
Let's try this: take the battery out of the player and wait for a full 5 minutes. While the battery is out, please hold the power-on button for 10 seconds. After that, connect it to your computer (without the battery). Does it work when it's connected to the computer? Regardless of that result, disconnect it from the computer, then put a brand new alkaline battery back in, and see if it will turn on.

I had 2 of these e140's, both less than 2 months old with the same problem. ie, would not turn on, and could not be seen by the PC. Removing the battery and holding down the power button as recommended worked for both machines. Thanks for this solution
