Black screen blue ring

I got my e260 a couple months ago and around a week after i got it, it froze. when you try to turn it on the screen stays black and the ring lights up blue. The blue ring doesnt go off until the e260 turns itself off. i've tried taking off the battery but that doesnt seem to help.does anyone have anyother things that i could try?

    i've had this happen to me to. this can happen if it gets to cold, then it will not respond at all. try pressing and holding the power button, or breathe on it to warm it up, or try plugging it in

Mp3 player wont play songs or anything

Only 2 suggestions here: 1) Make sure your HOLD switch is not enabled. 2) Try to update the firmware If neither of these work, time to send the unit back to Sandisk
