Here is a fix I got from Sandisk support: 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. Now, another thing I found that worked once, was to remove the battery, hold the power button for 5 seconds, then replace battery. The unit powered up after that.

no need to fear, this is a common problem. all you need to do is turn the key to the on position, push the pedal three times, then turn key to the off lock position. this is a typo in the manual. not sure why they have not corrected this issue. hope this helps.

I have the exact mp3 player and this has happened to me many times. Try holding the power button for a minute or two and if that doesn't work you will need to take the screws off of the back cover. In there the battery will be right on top. Pull it out for a few seconds and put it back in. That will fix your problem.

My sansa e250 mp3 player is unable to connect to computer nor recognized to use .It won`t turn on change the modes


turning on to change modes is your problem. If it's completely dead you may need to replace it or refurbish it. Or if the battery is completely dead plug it in all day until you can get it to turn on. ONCE ON then you can worry about getting it to connect. Try this:
There are two connection settings in USB: MTP and MSC. For some reason MTP is the default, but it doesn't connect properly on all computers. Select MSC and plug the player in again, the computer will recognize sansa e250 but not show the driver just yet. It is installing recognition software (just basic drivers - nothing heavy) and it doesnt tell you what its doing until its complete. WAIT FOR IT. Once it is complete you will see both the sansa e250 and the removable memory slot in your "my computer" now you're good to go.

My display doesnt work


My son had the same problem. I think he let it get too hot, left it setting in the sun too long. We tried everything. Unfortunately, he had to reformat, and lost everything. But he had all his date backed up on an external harddrive. Sorry....

Try changing the MODE on the device thru Settings>Mode or USB Mode.

Then try connecting to the PC again.

If that doesnt work, add to the question and ill try something else.
