Mine did the same thing.

Just now literally.

What I did to fix it was I put hold on and tried turning it on. It brought me to the black screen tellin you to turn off hold after the mp3 player turns itself off. Afterwards, it turned on just like normal.

I had a totally dead e260 and after looking around for a bit, I found this solution. Place the device into hold (orange showing) and hold the menu and mic buttons.
This started recovery mode. To get out of recovery mode, I had to attach the device to my computer. After getting my e260 up and running, I updated the firmware and haven't had a problem since.

Wow, i dunno wtf I just did... I came onto this page because my sansa e280 wouldn't turn on, even if it was charging it wouldn't start. Someone said to hold the power button for 15-20 secs, so I held it for 20 secs. nothing. I then held it for about a minute (all of this was with my sansa plugged into my computer). still nothing happened, so I turned the hold on(I had already tried this once before).. but this time it turned on... so... I guess just play around with it for a bit and it will work again.. xD

Hold on the menu/power icon for 15-20 seconds, it doesn't matter if the hold icon is on, this will reset your sandisk e200. if this doesn't work, then you might want to take it back to the store you bought it from.

Clucking sound when riding

Neil, I do not have a solution, but however have the same exact problem. Son got an E300 for Christmas. My daughter also received an E200. The E200 works fine, but the E300 makes a clunking noise when the throttle is engaged. Also the E200 can make it easily up the drive way, but the larger and more powerful E300 can not. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Ron -

E280 wont turn on, wheel only glows


For the e200 series player you can first try to RESET the player as next (solution 1):
1. Press and hold the Power/Menu button for approximately 20 seconds.
2. Release the Power/Menu button. ( now the player should be off )
3. Press the Power/Menu button again to turn on the player, to see if the device is working normally again.

If the player still freezes after that, you can reload and update the lastest firmware (solution 2).

I am considering purchasing a Sandisc Micro SDHC 8Gb card for my Sandisc E260 MP3 Player. Will this be OK?


Highest capacity memory card for the e200 series depends on the firmware version.

Consulting the Sandisk page gives next information:
Sansa e200 - verify the version of the player. To check, go to Settings > Info.

For 01.xx.xx firmware (e200 version 1) - up to 2GB microSD cards
For 03.xx.xx firmware (e200 version 2) - up to 16GB microSDHC cards
NOTE: Firmware is not interchangeable.
