Re: freezing

I felt like an idiot when I couldn't fix this problem. Take out the battery and put it back in.

SanDisk Sansa froze on song screen, wont unfreeze

Make sure the player is fully charged. 1. Connect the player to your computer. 2. Make sure the computer detects the player.
NOTE: If needed, switch the player to MSC mode, 1. Turn device OFF. 2. Slide the Hold switch down to Lock (orange color showing). 3. Press and hold the center button while connecting the device to the PC.then connect it to the PC. Next Be sure the battery is charged 1. Leave the player connected for approximately 2 hours to charge. 2. Disconnect the player from the PC. 3. Verify if you can turn on the player. 4. Reset the player if necessary.
To reset the player: 1. Press and hold the Power/Menu button for approximately 20 seconds. 2. Release the Power/Menu button. 3. Press the Power/Menu button again to turn on the player.
If that does not do it, re-seat the battery: Then try and see if it will come on with out the battery hooked to your computer, which I see you have done but did you change modes MSC to MTP . next delete the song it keeps hanging on and re-copy it back on to the player from a different folder or re-rip it from the CD and copy it into a new folder then re-copy to the player.

The best thing to do wuld be to first, back up all of the stuff on your ipod, and the restore it back to factory setting through itunes. After that, you can put all of your files back on the ipod and it should function normally.

There is a reset button.
If it freezes again after reset, go to Philips website, get the upgraded version of the Philips Device Manager and run the Update tab in Philips Device Manager.

MP3 Player is frozen

It sounds like you have a corrupted file. The solution would be to either locate the file that your MP3 Player is freezing on and delete it or format your mp3 players drive.

After listening to the first song, i flipped to the next and it froze!

There should be a reset button at the back try this, or hold the power button for several seconds and see if it does anything.

If it's just frozen in on mode you can also wait for the battery to die and then try again.

Good luck.

My Sansa e250R, 2 gigs, froze. Help!

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. :)

System locking up, I can't do a thing

Try taking a toothpick, and at the bottom of your mp3 player, there is the usb insert port thing, but then there is this little hole to the's the reset button. After you hit the reset button, just let it charge.
