Wet Sansa...Motherboard replacement price and procedure?
I saw that you said in answer to someone's post that your company could replace the motherboard in a sansa that had gotten wet. I'm wondering how much this costs. Mine is a model e250 that got completely soaked in water by my visually-impaired relative.
The motherboard is not an orderable part. Unless you are an expert electrician, I would replace the whole player. Here is a link to the video on the insides (about 10 minutes long): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zgz8h8aHUDU

Hai, i have sansa clip 2gb with the same problem.
one ultimate answer i got is Sansa clip uses Media Transfer Protocol(MTP). Sandisk(maker of salsa clip) know about the problem which cannot be solved(the earlier sansa products are to be avoided).
There is no solution with the company.
you did not explain exactly what is happening with your sansa m240 mp3 player.
have you recently gotten it wet. ie did it fall in the sink, did you wear it in the pouring rain? if you have i have some very bad news for you. My sansa died after it got wet, the radio refuses to turn in it just continuosly climbs through the available frequencies. it takes lots of playing around with it manually some times i lucked out and got a radio station to work if that happened the would all work. sometimes i could not get one station to work on days ike that it never worked at all...
If the m240 flash and chipset gets wet, even if correctly dried they never seem to work right again. at this point it is best to replace the mp3 player. with how cheap many models are at walmart i am advising many people to replace the sansa with a new model perhaps one of the sansa fuse with the micro sd expansion slot
4 gb sansa plus upto 32 gb more on expansion... works great and holds a small ton of music/ browse for your new one now.
There is no such service. A private user said that he had found a way, but he did not post pictures, and I am quite skeptical. It's not just a simple matter of replacing a screen, because usually the circuit that controls the screen is bad. I'm afraid the player will need to be replaced.
You need to call Sandisk to find this answer - we are a third-party/neutral tech support service. Generally, they will not honor any coupons, and you will find your best deals from online stores rather than physical stores.
I would find out if you're in warranty. One headphone working is a hardware issue - if you were to insert another headphone set into your player, you would find that the next headset would only get sound out of one ear. Unless you live in Philadelphia, I would go ahead and call Sandisk to see if you are eligible to get that player replaced. I work for another large consumer electronics company, and we definitely give out replacements for the one- headphone-only issue. Sorry to hear that the player went out on you - good luck on the replacement.
If it is still in-warranty, you can try calling Sansa - they will give you THEIR price. It is definitely NOT cost-effective to repair an Mp3 player. Go to eBay and pick one up second hand if it was very expensive initially.
