Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

Won't turn on

Well i got a sansa e260r for christmas and it was all good until i think i might have disconnected it improperly from my pc and when i did only the thumbwheel was lit up and it did nothing, usually it says "refreshing database" and continues to stay on. now i can't turn it on and whenever i push the power button or plug it in nothing happens but the thumbwheel lights up. i've tried resetting it and ive tried taking the battery out but nothing happens. i think i'll call up tech support, but i hope somebody can please help because i've put my whole music library on here and deleted it all off my pc.

Same things here. If you can't power down, Try holding in the center button or the rec. button that has worked for me. Now if I could only get my e260 to power up I will be back in business. -Mac

I've had nothing but problems with my e260 since I bought it. It's been freezing, showing corrupted album art, etc. I installed the firmware updater yesterday and today after repeately trying to get it to boot into MTC mode I got the "glowing thumbwheel, no screen" problem. I opened the back and popped the battery out for a second and put it back, and the unit started up for me. Based on past performance, I can't see it running for long, though.

The software on my sansa e260r is completely gone, when i start it up it reads" load main image failed, switch to recovery mode


Hello,

Firmware on the player can be reinstalled in 2 METHODS.
In both methods the player should be in USB connection mode MSC = recovery mode.
How to switch the player into MSC mode:
0. Player not connected to a computer.
1. When the e260R is not OFF, on the player press and hold the
Power/Menu button for 15 seconds to turn the device completely off.
2. Slide the Hold switch, so the orange portion shows.
3. On your PC, double-click My Computer
4. On your Sansa player, press and hold the REC button while connecting it to the PC.
5. Release the REC button when a 16MB-FORMAT drive partition appears under My Computer.

On a computer running Windows, you can use the Sansa Firmware Updater to get an automatic download of the firmware for the e260R.
How to use the Sansa Firmware Updater [METHOD 1]:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/306
If not installed yet, get the Sansa Firmware Updater to download:
http://mp3support.sandisk.com/sansa/Application/SansaUpdaterInstall.exe
Right click the link above and Save target as... ; save the Installer to a location on your computer, install and run the updater on your computer. Select Firmware in the updater and Download Now, to start downloading the software for the player.

When you prefer to download manually or if you have another operating system, the firmware can be downloaded from the forums site [METHOD 2]:
