    I have the same problem! For the past month, when I'd try to sync files, most of them would come up as "Bad Files or Corrupt Files" when I tried to play the songs. So I tried to reformat it, but that didn't help. And then, one day I tried turning it on, and it did the normal SanDisk startup...but then the screen faded to all white and then all black. What do I do!? I tried the option of resetting it with holding the record button on the side for 10 seconds and having the lock on...nothing happened... :(

1. Download recover.rar from here
2. unpack the libusb-win32-device-bin-20060827.tar.gz to (example) c:libusb
3 find e200tool.zip and unpack it to (example) c:e200tool

lots of archives isnt it )))

DRIVER:
1. connect using manufacturing mode (hold button on + center button while connecting)
2. In device manager find unknown device under USB and update the driver. Select driver manually. Navigate to 0781-0720.inf (came with the archive) (c:e200tool)
3. When windows promt you to install "libusb0.sys" direct it to с:libusblibusb-win32-device-bin-20060827in
4. Start-> run -> cmd
5 type:
cd
cd e200tool
e200tool recover BL_SD_boardSupportSD.rom
6. windows will find another usb device so instead of "0781-0720.inf" choose 0666-E200.inf
7 disconnect player and restart it

STEP 3 (recover bootloader)
1. connect player in manufacruring mode
2. Start-> run -> cmd
3 type:
cd
cd e200tool
e200tool recover BL_SD_boardSupportSD.rom
but before you hit enter press and hold record button (very important)

Step $ (firmware update)

1. connect player in recovery mode
2. copy PP5022.mi4 to 16 mb partition
3 restart player


OK and now If you screw it up - it is not my fault ))

Just the blue ring, screen does not turn on


Hello,

Blue ring faillure could be solved, trying to reset the e250.
How to reset:
1. Press and hold the Power/Menu button for approximately 20 seconds.
2. Release the Power/Menu button.
3. Press the Power/Menu button again to turn on the player.


Only if the reset action above did not help,
reload and update to the latest firmware.

Installing firmware will erase all data from the player !

  • Step 1: Switch to MSC mode.

How to switch to MSC mode:
1. Turn device OFF.
2. Slide the hold switch to the direction of the headphone jack so an orange color would show putting the device on Hold.
3. Press and hold the ( |<< ) button while connecting the device to the PC.

I was watching a Blu-Ray movie this morning and my PS3 just shut off and proceeded to have a red blinking light. I pressed the power button and a solid red light appeared. I pressed the power button...


You have major problems I'm afraid. You need to contact Sony about fixing it/replacing it. Just pray it's under warranty. You could equate this problem with the 360's Red Ring of Death.

Squeaky belt and battery light on now


+++ been told to fix blue smoke...piston rings gone .

Piston rings, valve seals are a good guess for cause of blue smoke. Engin oil additives for high-mileage engines can help the blue smoke problem... Pep Boys and the like -- many different products -- just make sure it's for stopping smoke, not cleaning engines...

+++ squealin....fan belt gone.

Has the alternator belt been tightened? If not, this could be causing both symptoms: dead battery & squealing

+++ battery light on...alternator gone.

Again, this could just be a loose belt, and most likely is the problem...
