Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player
Is there a way i can just reset it or to get the screen back on???.. i took it back to here i got it from (yesterday) and they told me they wouldnt take it back i soo i need help fixing it pronto!! im still charging it and still noo screen
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

I was told to hold the menu/power button for 15 to 20 seconds and it should switch off. Then you can use it as normal. Try this.

AWESOME. I thought my Sansa e250 was "bricked" and totally useless, but this solution worked like a charm. Rose it from the dead & brought it back to life. I have every file back and in tact. Thanks a lot.

I just purchase and sansa250 and I was unable to add songs on it but i was able to do it on another computer that detected it. But when i tried it again on the computer that didnt detect the screen went white. So I came online to get some solution on how to get it back running and i used the 15 to 20 sec hold on the power button and it worked thank god for computers where we can communicate with people with out having to call a suppoet line

The following is not a solution:
I tried holding down the power button for 15 to 20 seconds, but this did nothing, except give me the message: "Battery is too low System shutdown." Once the e250 turned off, I plugged it into the USB cable. Unfortunately, instead of going through the process of turning on and connecting to my computer, it merely gave the black and white SanDisk logo screen, dimmed, got white at the top and bottom, went completely white, and then started at the black and white SanDisk logo screen all over again. I began having this problem yesterday after lightly sitting down on it. I would be rather disappointed if that was the cause of the problem, in knowledge of my weight (only 150 lb) and of the total abuse it has had in its year of use in my posession (I bought it new).
One of the first things I did when trying to fix this problem was deassembling, cleaning, and reassembling the device. In the past, I had taken the player apart to clean it, and I always successfully reassembled it.
I'll keep this page bookmarked, just in case some one adds something. (I know, I know, it's been a year since anyone posted anything.)
