Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

E250 keeps restarting when turned on

Ok, I don't know if anyone else has had this problem, I haven't read all the posts. But just the other day, after turning on my Sansa e250, the thing just kept on restarting-it would get to the screen where it says, "SanDisk, " and then restart. And it keeps doing that until the battery runs out. Plugging it into the computer doesn't help at all. I've tried monkeying around with the, "Hold, " switch on top of the player to no avail as well. Any ideas? I've only had this thing since Christmas and have never had a problem with it, in fact I had just been listening to it a few hours beforehand. Help! Thanks, Brian laryalx@yahoo.com

    my sansa is doing exactly the same thing! it keeps restarting til the battery runs out. and when i plug it in, the comp doesn't even recognize it.

    Mine does the exact same thing--and you can't update anything because it doesn't recognize that the device is connected to the computer (yet it DOES charge the battery).



    Was anyone else's device acting funny before that happened? I had problems beforehand as well--it'd say that I had virtually no space left on the device after I'd removed all my music.

Formatting


Hi,

If for some reason the Format option is gone, then perhaps some of the firmware or settings have been drastically changed or worst, corrupted.

A couple of things you can try:
a. do a soft reset - press on the Power/Menu for 15 seconds;
b. do a full settings reset - Main Menu/Settings/Reset All;
c. do a Format - Main Menu/Settings/Format but all in the internal memory will be erased;

If the above will not work, you can also try:
1. download and run in your PC Sansa Connect Recovery Tool
2. read the How to use the Sansa Connect Recovery Tool and follow the instructions carefully;
3. doing #1 will erase the corrupted files, unfortunately so with everything else. It will then restore the device software to an uncorrupted state.

Hope this be of help/ Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

I can't turn on my sansa e250


try removing the battery of the player and put it back in then try to power on the player. If it will not power on try removing the battery and connect the player to the computer without the battery if it would turn on then i guess its the battery causing the issue. You can purchase any battery from any local electronic shops out there like best buy, wal-mart.

Plz help =(::::::::::


Hi Blkmage. It seems that your E250 is experiencing some system errors due after the format due to some bad tracks on the player. Try this solution, but this solution is only meant for the "Standard" E200 players (there are 2 types of E200 players -- the Standard E200 and the "Rhapsody" players, indicated with an "r" after the E200 such as "E250r". I'm hoping you have the standard E250. Switch your Sansa E250 to its Recovery Mode: 1. Make sure the player is powered off 2. Enable the "Hold" switch (located on the top of the player). You would know it's enabled when you see the "orange-colored" surface 3. Press the "Record" button. Make sure you keep it pressed while pressing on the "Menu" button. 4. keep your fingers pressed on these 2 buttons until the E250 LCD screen displays "Welcome to Recovery Mode" 5. Connect your E250 to your computer. (Just a reminder: The minimum Operating System requirements for a Sansa E200 player is Windows XP and above) 6. Double-click on "My Computer" and you would see your Sansa E250 appear as a "16 MB" drive. Note: If you do not see that "16 MB" drive/partition, please repeat steps 1-6. Next, Apply the firmware for the E250 (your player should be connected to your PC at this time): Step 1: Use this link to download the firmware for your Sansa E250 (for better results, please save this file on your "Desktop": http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downl... Step 2: Double left-click on the downloaded file, and follow the on-screen prompts. The file will automatically re-flash your player and format it as well, thereby clearing all possible file/system corruptions that may have occurred which caused the "Load Main Image Failed" notification in the first place. Step 3: When the process is complete, unplug your E250 from your computer, and please make sure you disable the "Hold" switch Step 4: Power up your E250 and 90-99% of the time, it would boot up successfully. Hoping it works out for your player. Syd :)
