Question about SanDisk Sansa m240 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Volumn problem I love my m240 MP3. It has worked very well for months even though I use it while working every day for many hours. Just the other day the volumn dropped off to where the high end is only audible with zero background noise. Does anyone have any ideas? I have not tried anything because eletronics are over my head.

Re: volumn problem

The first thing I would try is reseting it by taking out the batteries and placing them back in. Let me know if it helped. D.

My sandisk mp3 player /FM is not working

you did not explain exactly what is happening with your sansa m240 mp3 player.

have you recently gotten it wet. ie did it fall in the sink, did you wear it in the pouring rain? if you have i have some very bad news for you. My sansa died after it got wet, the radio refuses to turn in it just continuosly climbs through the available frequencies. it takes lots of playing around with it manually some times i lucked out and got a radio station to work if that happened the would all work. sometimes i could not get one station to work on days ike that it never worked at all...

If the m240 flash and chipset gets wet, even if correctly dried they never seem to work right again. at this point it is best to replace the mp3 player. with how cheap many models are at walmart i am advising many people to replace the sansa with a new model perhaps one of the sansa fuse with the micro sd expansion slot

4 gb sansa plus upto 32 gb more on expansion... works great and holds a small ton of music/ browse for your new one now.

Mp3 player shows that battery is dead even though its charged and the screen only works if i hold the on off switch the whole time

try inserting the charger to a different socket until it works. if not you might be having problem with the charger. not the mp3 player and if you already triedto change the charger you might be having problem with the battery of your mp3 player ok send me a message for more concerns.

go to my computer and select removable disc (thats your mp3 player) then click and drag songs to the music file in the removable disc icon. This is how my friend does it with most of his mp3 players.

Thank you for contacting SanDisk Technical Support. It is our goal to make sure you have all the resources you need to get the most from your product through your recent inquiry into our product line. We do apologize for any kind inconvenience this issue is causing you. For verification, does your computer have Windows XP as its operating system? This issue may be due to some sort of corruption on the Sansa m240 itself. We should try formatting the Sansa m240 as a possible solution. Caution: Formatting will erase all information on the Sansa mp3 player. Please be sure to have a back up of all the information before proceeding. If your Sansa m240 is currently frozen, please remove the battery (to unfreeze it), then put it back in, and connect it to your Windows XP computer. Since you cannot access your Sansa m240 to convert to MSC mode, please have the ?HOLD? button ?ON? so that you can have your Sansa m240 in MSC mode before plugging to your computer. To format the Sansa m240 on your PC, let us connect the Sansa m240 to your computer on an USB port preferably located near the power hub or to an external self powered USB hub, go to ?My Computer?, single right click on the ?Removable Disk? associated with your Sansa m240, and select ?Format?. Let us please make sure that, under FILE SYSTEM, we change FAT to FAT32, and then single left click ?Start?. This will erase all data off the Sansa m240 and correct errors on it, which should make the Sansa m240 usable again. We also recommend formatting the Sansa m240 another way. Please be advised again that formatting will erase all data. Please right click on my computer and select ?Manage?. When ?Computer Management? comes up, please click on ?Disk Management? on the left hand side. After clicking on ?Disk Management? you should now have a list of drives in the right side panel. On the right, look for the Sansa m240, it may show up as Disk 1, 2, 3? Removable Disk. Right click on the larger "Volume" rectangular icon to the right of the Removable disk and select ?Format? choosing FAT32. If you do not have the format option, please select "New Partition" and just keep clicking next through the Wizard that appears. After formatting the Sansa m240, please do try your Sansa m240. If applicable, please go the link below to download the firmware update for your Sansa m240. The link is: or If formatting and firmware update in your computer is not possible, please do try the process again on another Windows XP computer. NOTE: Please be aware that formatting is a normal and necessary method of drive maintenance and repair, and simply NOT formatting periodically can cause a drive to slip into failure due to the backup, and clutter of residual data.

My sansa M240 WonT turn on all the way

Jan 21, 07 I called and spoke with a Sandisk rep on Jan 16 about the "Sansa m240 startup screen" freeze-up problem that so many are experiencing. He said a bad batch was sent out in early December and on those m240's there is "NO POSSIBLE FIX" for that problem, but no plans for a recall. He said he could not discuss what the problem was, but I guess it would be a hardware issue, since a firmware issue could easily be resolved. He said anyone with this problem is requested to call Sandisk and get a MRA number, then return the m240 to Sandisk for a replacement. If you have one that's frozen on the Sansa m240 startup screen (all other freeze-ups can probably be corrected) take it back to your place of purchase or call Sandisk immediately.

Sandisk m240 freezes halfway through playlist....

When you disconnect be sure to use windows' disconnect device safely  thing on the bottom right part of the screen by the clock. Even though the player says it's not writing it probably still is even after a long period of time so if you just unplug it it will mess up whatever mp3 it was transferring at the time.
