I had the same problem, hold down the power button for 30 seconds (even if it turns off in the meantime) then let it sit for a bit. Everything should be find after that.

  2. Release the Power button once the device is powered down.
  3. Turn the device back on.
STEP 2 – Download and Install the Sansa Firmware Updater

If that does not fix it, please post a comment with an update to your problem.

Deleting videos off Sansa e200R

There is no such thing as a stupid question. Plug Sansa as you normally do. Go to My Computer, and click on the removable drive that holds your Sansa's data. If you don't see the video folder that means it's invisible. To make your invisible folder visible click on Tools on the top of your window. From there select Folder Options... A new window should open up and click on the View tab on new window. Look for Hidden Files and Folders on this list and select Show Hidden Files and Folders. You should be able to see your Video folder now, and the rest is up to you. Good Luck!!!

Help! my sansa wont turn on.. but the blue ring is still glowing

My sansa 260 has had the blue ring glowing and no screen for a while and I tried all the repair software and none of it worked because my sansa would not connect to my computer. I used the 15 second trick to turn it off, put it on hold then opened the back. Above the battery in the back is a black rectangle which was out a little so I pushed it back in took the battery out and put it back in and when i closed it and turned it on the screen was back! Works perfectly now
