Question about SanDisk Sansa E280 MP3 Player
When trying to recharge the computer doesn't recognize that I have even hooked anything up. The screen is completely black on the MP3 player. It's pretty much just dead! What can I do? I have hardly used this and when I did it worked fine.
The instruction manual doesn't have any troubleshooting or contact info.
Make sure the hold/lock is not engaged first.
Here is a friendly tip posted from another user - let me know if it works:
ok so i called 1-866-sandisk and she told me how to fix it. you just flip the key lock at the top so you see orange, then hold down the record button. then you should get some sort of message on the screen. then you plug it in and under my computer a file should show up. you open it and make a folder in it called sansa.fwm (i think thats the right folder name, if not, try sansa.tmp or email me). then you unplug it and it should say formatting or something like that. once its done it should work.
