Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

I can't see anything

The screen of my sansa is broken, when I turn it on, only a big black spot appears on it. I can't see the menu or anything else. I tried to reppair it, I just opened it and I saw the screen broken in half from top to bottom but I realized that it'll need a new screen, and then, I assembled it back again. I would like to know if it can be repaired? what can i do? will it work again?

Re: i can't see anything

No it is not the ipod screen is a bit to big my cousin tryed that and it would not fit that and the screws are to big for the whole of the mp3 screen your best bet is to buy a new mp3 player if I where you I would stey away from ipods though they tend to make you pay for the songs you put on them so I would stick to an mp3 I tryed to contact sansa and they are working on these repair kit type things they are going to try and sell them.

Re: i can't see anything

I have a broken screen as well and have contacted Sandisk with questions as how to fix it. They do not have any authorized repair contacts as of yet, I have tried to find a replacement screen but do not know if the Ipod version of screen is compatible with the one in the e260. It says the screen is 1.8in on the Sandisk site and the Nano is 1.5in diagonal, which seems smaller to me, but if it's compatible I'd be willing to use it as long as it works. That's all I got, best bet is probably to buy a new one. Good luck.

Can my screen be fixed

Now let's get real.
This is not a warranty repair which SANDISK would likely repair.
It would never be worth it to get it fixed.
Invest in an IPOD, and don't drop or set on that or mother will be mad.

My sansa view wont let me view pictures

Is it on NTSC Display? In order for mine to play videos, It has to be on this setting. To change it to that, Go to settings, in the "more" category on the menu, then go to"system settings", then to "display"and it will be the second one listed. click on that spot and when it asks if you want NTSC or PAL, choose NTSC. Hope that helps!! ^_^

Blank White Screen - No Menu Showing

My Sansa has a similar problem. Sometimes when the Sansa turns on (after the Sandisk logo) the screen will either turn black, blue, or black and white stripes. The player still works, but it is hard to navigate without the screen, obviously. What I end up doing is letting the backlight turn off and then pressing any button. Sometimes when the screen comes back, the display is allright again. But sometimes it takes more than a few tries. Turning it off and on again seems to work a little better, but it is more time consuming.
