    Windows had an error writing to my Sansa c140 player yesterday, and windows shut down the folder window for it and sent an rerror report. Now the player boots to a blank screen with a checkmark in a checkbox. I can press play to see blank song 0/0 which never starts.

    I think the operating system was damaged when windows had the error, the player soon dimmed and then when I rebooted it said low battery and shut itself down again.

    I think I could copy files to it again now, windows detects it and offers me a folder window for it with no files in it. I need to reload the operating system/frimware, it seems to have them incomplete now. I might try some other system on it if it is easy and might work,

    Could anyone post their system files?

It won't turn on


These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

Screen is blank on my Sansa c140


Hi I can see the icons for music, radio, microphone etc. but there is not text to read what is going on. When I hook it up to the computer1.gif, there is not text on the mp31.gif player, only a white screen. I would like to format the player, but it does not show up in "My Computer" I tried removing the battery for hours, someone suggested that hold the menu button down for 30 seconds but it still does not work. Any thoughts? Thanks
