Thanks in advance, Ms M. P.S I've also removed the battery

Re: Frozen screen

Hi there! I've got a brand-new solution to this dead-end problem. BUT, the downside is that you'll need another similar player. Here's what I've done to unfreeze my Sansa m230. 1. I've opened the cases of both our Sansa m230s. 2. Connected the healthy one to the computer via USB. 3. After it was connected I've hot-swapped the "Samsung k9k4g08u0m-pcb0" memory chip with the one, which was causing the problem. 4. Finally, I've formatted it through WMP10. Only synchronizing in MTP mode using WMP11 since. Hope that helps. Amakorkos

Frozen screen


When the Sansa e260 is frozen, first try to reset the player.

How to reset the e200 series 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.
When resetting does not solve the problem, a reinstallation of the
firmware should be performed.

IPod click wheel frozen

Try to restart the Ipod.

Hold the select button and the menu at the same time until you see the screen go off.

If still does not work then try to enter disk mode and see if it works.

Disk Mode:
Reboot the ipod via Select and menu, right away hold the select and play button and hold until disk mode comes on. Does the wheel work?

If still does not work then reboot the ipod again and let it reboot normal to go back in apple firmware. If all buttons are working and none of the above works, I would assume it is not software related.

let the battery run out then restart/reboot. if this does not work, you may just want to get another one because the problem could be your motherboard. connie
