Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

It turns off as soon as you unplug it from charging.

I brought a E250 for my sister for xmas from America. (We are in the UK). When we plugged it into the usb on my PC it started to charge. After about 6 hours we took it out but the screen immediatly turns off and you can't turn it back on again. It does this every time you try and unplug it from the PC. I have also tried using a wall plug socket charger, the screen turns on and you can play the songs throught it but as soon as you unplug it from the mains it turns off again and you cant turn it back on. It seems to be having trouble holding a charge. Any help? Thanks

My daughter's RCA tablet will not turn on. what can i do?

Two possibilities:
1.- Be sure the battery is charged. There has to be some indication that the tablet is being charged.
If you can turn on the table when plugged in to the charger, and it dies soon after unplugging it, the tablet's battery may need replacement.
2.- The other possibility is that the tablet is dead...

My e250 will not turn off & will not turn on-Screen is gray w/vert. lines in it

You need to remove the battery and let the system power down completely. I have had this problem and the others I have seen on this site. Removing and reinstalling the battery solves many problems. Just letting the battery drain is not good for it and may take a really long time.

Installing a sony xplod in to my girlfriends fiat punto

If I were in your shoes I would hardwire it, Run the red wire directly to fuse box or battery, run yellow wire to switched circuit in fuse panel, and isolate the black ground wire somewhere inside the dash, I'm in America and have not wrenched on any FIAT's, but in my expirence some manufactures doe things proprietary, give this a shot.

Sansa MP3 player charges, plays while plugged into wall, but not unplugged.

When you plug it into the wall make sure you turn it off and let it charge all the way before you start using it again. see if that helps
