Can not turn off. Screen stuck on "SanDisk" logo


Take the back cover off and remove the battery. If there's a memory card in it, remove it also. Let it sit for a minute and put the battery back in and turn it on. If it still doesn't turn on and locks up, then take the battery out and plug it into your computer with the battery out. Copy everything from the device and format it. Unplug it from the computer and put the battery back in and see if it turns on.

Reformatting help


Here's a new tip from another user - let me knwo if it works, b/c I have loads more advice:
ok so i called 1-866-sandisk and she told me how to fix it. you just flip the key lock at the top so you see orange, then hold down the record button. then you should get some sort of message on the screen. then you plug it in and under my computer a file should show up. you open it and make a folder in it called sansa.fwm (i think thats the right folder name, if not, try sansa.tmp or email me). then you unplug it and it should say formatting or something like that. once its done it should work.

Sansa MP3 player has frozen screen


With the Sandisk you can just open up the battery compartment and pop the battery out for a second, then if you put it back in and turn the mp3 player on, it should work just fine. This is easier to do with the older ones that take AAA's, but unfortunately with the e250 you need a little screwdriver to remove the battery. (But the other day I used the flat part of a piece of jewelry; you can use whatever you have :D )

Sansa e250 MP3 Player starting problem


Do a Firmware upgrade first - http://www.sandisk.com/sansa/#/support-0/
Enter Sansa e200 series

If this does not work, try the other methods I suggest in my Sansa player "Tips and Tricks" - click on My Profile if you do not see the article in the solutions section (no offense to Fixya, but your website is not yet user-friendly - needs some work).
