Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player
All i get is an hour glass on a black screen wont turn off or on
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. :)

the problem is when the computer freezes it sometimes can wipe the hard drive and can damage the mp3 player for good thus freezing it from turning it on and clearing the memory and thats it

press-down on the power on/off button for 20 seconds. that should force it to turn it off. however, should that fail, you can use small screwdriver to remove the four screws on the back... then lift-out the battery, and then put battery back in place.

I held it in the off position while at the same time pressing the menu button....it shut off, then I restarted it. It will repair the media itself.
