Question about SanDisk Sansa m230 MP3 Player

1 Answer

My SanDisk Sansa m230 will not turn on at all

I've had this MP3 for a few years and now it will not turn on, even when I place fresh batteries in it. What I would like to know is if there is some way I could fix this at home, or if it would be wise just to buy a new one?

    Exactly the same here, and it makes me frustrated because sometimes if I try it will turn on, but most times it won't.

My sansa mp3 only begins to turn on when i connect it to the pc but then freezes when it says 'Sansa m250 2.0 Gb' please help


Look further than the batteries. Take the whole thing apart. That's what I do, and I've fixed a lot of things. And keep looking on the internet. A few hours of looking can result in years of listening.

My son can't get his sansa mp3 player to turn on.


Try this:
1.First, remove the battery. Then press and hold the "Menu" button for 30 seconds. This would cause the excess static electricity to be discharged from the player.

Insert a fresh battery and try to power it on. If it still doesn't power on, try the procedure again, but this time, press and hold the "Menu" button for 1 minute. Insert a fresh battery again and see if it would work.
2.
Plug your player in your computer and your Operating system should recognize it as a "Removable Disk" and it will have a drive letter. Right click on the M230 drive letter and select "Format". When the Format window appears, just make sure to set the File System type to "FAT" and make sure that the "Quick Format" option on the bottom section of the window remains un-checked. Click start to format the player. Follow the on-screen prompts.

Will my mp3 player (sandisk sansa m230) charge


Assuming the computer puts out enough juice, yes. Not all USB ports do.

Plug it in, and the Sansa should say "Charging" if it is charging. If it doesn't, try a different USB port if possible. If your computer has ports on the front/side and on the back, the back ones are more likely to put out sufficient power.

Will not turn on


Your question is sort of incomplete. It could be a few things. dead battery, damaged battery, corrupt system file(s), missing system file(s) or maybe it has water damage. it could just be old anyway GOOD LUCK

M230


Try deleting files to get at least 4mb of free space. Unplug any speakers or headpones (some speakers cause it to shut down when played at higher volume levels, probably due to impedence incompatibilities). Make certain you have an absolutely fresh battery in it. When it comes on after being connected to a usb port or after a battery has been replaced it uses probably more battery energy during its database initialization than at any other time. Even if the battery meter reads full, the draw might be more than a used battery can deliver. Once it does show you the regular song screen shut it down so it can save the initialization results.
