Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Static on the Screen (please help)

When I turn my sansa e250 on, about 90% of the time the screen malfunctions and only shows static. Normally I'd assume that the screen was broken, but every now and then I'll turn the player on and the screen will work perfectly However, chances are that when the screen is working perfectly, if i turn the player off and restart it, I'll be stuck with static for the rest of the day Is this a software issue? A loose connection? Please help Note: Whatever state the screen is initially in when I turn the player on is the state that it remains in until I turn it off or restart it. So if the screen is working, it will stay working until I turn the player off. Same goes if its full of static Also: the player itself works perfectly regardless of the state of the screen. its just a pain manuvering around the menu blindly

These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

It is common if you have a static charge for the cursor to flick all over the screen as the static build up causes a malfunction with the screen. If you have nylon carpets or fabric on your chairs which builds a static charge this will make things worse. Try using the screen on a wooden table where there is a wooden floor and sit on a wooden chair. Before you do anything touch your hands onto something nearby and hold them there for a few seconds to get rid of the static charge. Then turn the power on to the screen while holding on to it. If it all works OK then you can be sure it was a static build up. Then try walking away for a minute or two and then try it again. If the cursor flicks all over the screen, you have got a static build up on your body. This is surprisingly common with laptops or similar devices when people use them on their laps while sitting on couches.

When I turn on the TV the screen has static


Static usually means that the tuner is not working. Chack all of your cable connections first. As a quick test of the tuner itself, remove the cable from the exterior antenna connection and insert a small paper clip. That will act like an antenna and if you scan for channels, something should be seen. If not, then you probably have a bad tuner or have lost the source power for the tuner.

Static screen


Push the reset button along with the power button. That resets all memory in it and tends to fix the static fuzz.
FYI: The static show on the screen after putting the batteries in backward.

Static on screen and then turns itself off then on


My first aproach will be to see if the tv reacts to tap on the sides if you see a reaccion when you do it most likely you have a loose conection and need to call someone to find it and resoldered it.Dont do it yourself if you dont know how.
