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.

Mic won't work at auxiliary mode


On the remote control, there is a blue "Magic Mic" button. Press on that your mic will turn on in any mode.
Just joking but I've been mad about how bad this LG home theater system is. It can only play extremely limited video files and turn off the mic in AUX mode. So the answer is you really can't do that. Buy a mixer instead.

When you say the CMOS is set to reset, this should not be the case for normal usage. and maybe the problem if left in the on position the system will not start (which sounds like your problem).

Env Phone wont start up


Well, in my experinece, one of two issues. You said your charger port is bad. Thats not good. It will give you enough juice to barely turn the phone on and it goes out. MOST phones will do that. IF you know your charger port works, try a new battery, if it doesnt you have to get the charger port fixed as it will just constantly act as if the phone is dead, even if you put a new battery in it, it will blink on, touch a button eats up the battery bars and dies. craigslist.org usually has alot of cell phone repair people on it. depends on your community.

My sansa e260 wont turn on or charge


I had the same problem. Place the device into hold and press the menu and mic buttons at the same time. The first time I tried it, I had no response and then I pressed the same buttons again and my e260 came back to life.
After getting my e260 to come on, I updated the firmware and everything has been working.
