Question about SanDisk Sansa e140 MP3 Player
Hello, Yesterday, I went to turn my e140 on and it stayed on for a little while and then shut off, so I replaced the battery and pressed the Power button, it turns on, the back light on the LCD works, but no text or anything shows up on the screen, but it still plays MP3's, its so frustrating I cant see what Im playing. Also I updated the firmware and it does the same thing, but this time it wont play music. I want to exhaust all my options before I give up on my Sandisk e140? Is there anything else I can do?
It seems like your E250R is experiencing a temporary system error due to a corrupted song, and needs to be reset. Try to "Soft Reset" your player, press and hold the "Menu" button until the LCD light and scroll wheel light turn off. Since the player was probably left on for more than 7 hours (as you indicated), you would need to re-charge the player before proceeding further. Charge it for at least 2-3 hours. Next, try to format the player to rid of any corruption then re-transfer the songs. If you have subscription songs, then I would suggest to delete the song you last played which caused the error. I hope this helps. There is another solution for the player, but for now this might actually resolve the issue. Let me know the results. :)

To reset the player hold in the power button for at least 20 seconds, when you release the button the player should restart on it's own. If it doesn't then try again holding the power button for a little longer. If for some reason the player becomes unstable and resetting doesn?t resolve the issue, then try the Sansa Connect Recovery Tool which will clean up your player and restore it to factory settings. You can download this tool & get instructions on it's use on the following link: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1532 Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

You have a corrupt file - bad file...
Corrupt files for sansa -
Plug your player in, in MSC mode.
Right-click on it.
Click "Error Checking"
Check both the boxes on the error checking window that pops up, and click start.
After it finishes, check your player to make sure your player is normal.
If that don't work then format = http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.as...

Solution is pretty simple.
Go to Settings on your device -> USB -> Change it to MSC.
When you connect it to your computer on Win2000 it will show as a drive. Open the drive you should see the folders. Drag and drop your mp3's into Music* folder. Or your videos into Video folder and your Photos to Photos folder.
