I've tried to get a replacement LCD for my SANSA, impossible so far.

There are some PARTS/REPAIR SANSA's on ebay, but must of them with the same problem. There was also a working LCD, I just fail on bidding.

If you can get a working LCD, the replacement is possible with a blower, directing heat to the specifyc connectors area, you can remove the broken one while the glue (some kind of silicon) is warm and flexible, you have to be careful when putting the new one, pins must be aligned, also you should do that whith both (broken and wkring) at the same time, so then you can use the glue still on the pins (golden connectors) area.

I got to remove the broken one and noticed (with my fingers) that the silicon can be used again, but since I didn't use a blower some of the pins (connectors) where damaged. Only halve of the process is confirmed.

Good luck, we'll wait 4 your results if you get a working LCD somewhere..

You guys are insane of course you can replace the screen thats not the problem the problem is getting the OEM to sell you one screen which of course they won't so you find a really cheap one on ebay or some other aution site that the screen works but some other part is broken and you use that one. this stuff is not Rocket Science guys!!!1

Buy the same player. Unscrew the back cover.there should be more but yet smaller screws at the edge after you remove the cover, remove them as well.now pop off front cover.lcd screen should be exposed pop off screen as well.repeat steps on the new player switch screens. return new player with broken screen.

My screen is cracked too. I notice that this is just a cheap plastic layer above the actual LCD. So I am just going to carefully cut it away and get a good snap-on cover from amazon. Here is an example:

Don't bother trying to replace the screen. I just opened up my Sansa E270R and the screen is not removable. It is attached permanently via flexible cable. If anyone knows differently please let me know.

It is nearly impossible to remove one from one sansa and be able to use it on another. I agree, the only way would be to get new screen from sansa but they most likely will not sell any. Also, the sync connector, if damaged, might be able to be transferred from one sansa to another but micro soldering would be the technique necessary. I have been soldering for over 30 years, can remove dip components from boards and reuse them else where. the computer stuff is way too fine to do by hand.
just my 2 cents

Well, if it still works then just go by that protective screen stuff for digital camera screens and you should be fine. I doubt you can actually replace the LCD screen on the player...might as well buyer a new player then.

It's not rocket science that these things aren't built like tanks. "I dropped mine while skateboarding", "I was rock climbing and the harness bent and twisted the player and broke the screen", "I sat on mine and broke the screen", "I stepped on mine", etc, etc, etc. No Kidding. The larger the screen - the larger the flex area. You can push in on these with your thumb quite easily. Not much protection. Of course, Sansa won't want you to replace a component easily and cheaply. I took my son's apart after he broke his (Parkour). You will have to have a very steady hand at micro-soldiering to replace the screen. Easier to pay attention to what you're doing and not break it to begin with. Rocket science? No - just common sense and another (expensive) lesson learned on his part.

Connection issue where snsa dies and restarts


I had this problem a few months ago, what is wrong is, you have a bad driver, something that you can do is switch the USB mode, this should work. If you have tried to the driver and switch the USB mode and it still doesn't work, then let me know.

Good Luck,

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 )

Cracked screen LCD


Hello shaffycat,

Sorry to hear about the screen on your Sansa E250 MP3 player. It sounds like the Liquid Crystal Display screen has broken. It's possible that the damage is repairable but to be honest due to the high cost of electronic repair it may not actually be cost effective to do so.

You can contact SanDisk to get service information. They can give you a basic idea of what it would cost to get an estimate on repairs and the average cost. Their webite is http://www.sandisk.com.

Best Regards,
Ken

Cracked screen


if you have a warranty in the store that you bought your sansa from you can change it or replace it. but if you don't have the warranty you just have to take it to a small store that fix the screens.

WMP won't detect my MP3


See if this helps: -Close all programmes on your computer. -Turn off your Sansa e250. -Attach the cable into the USB port of your computer before attaching it into the actual e250. -The scroll wheel on the Sansa should have turned on by now. -Then it's just a matter of waiting for a few seconds. -Try opening Windows Media Player to see if it detects your device. Otherwise, be patient. Goodluck.
