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?
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.
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.

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!! ^_^
u have to wait till the screen will be black. I had the same problem with my sansa. it can lasts 1 or 2 days. after screen is black and then do following:
2. change lock switch to orange position
3. Press and hold rec button (at left side)
4. while pressing the rec button, turn the player on
5. it will appear the boot menu. connect the USB cable and try to continue the firmware
6. if it doesn't work, do a firmware downgrade. download this file:
7. execute the application while in boot mode
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.
