Question about SanDisk Sansa m250 MP3 Player

4 Answers

Auto power and/or sleep

I cannot figure out how to change the auto power from off to on.I want the player to shut off after the selected time is over.
Also when I set the "sleep" feature so that it turns off after a certain amount of time, it does not shutdown.
I did try using both of these by following the manuel. Do you have any answers or suggestion

    My question was regarding a Sansa SanDisk model m250. It has a Auto Power (which is off) and a Sleep feature. I am assuming the Auto Power means it turns itself off after a certain amount time and the Sleep feature puts the device in a sleep mode after the desired set time is up.

    The problem is I have not been able to use the Auto Power or the Sleep features. I have followed the manual instructions, however, neither seems to work. Each time I thought I had it figured out, it does not turn off automatically Do you have any answers or suggestions?

Hi!

While using auto power off and sleep feature, the hold button should be in unhold position and you can also see the manual for SANSA MP3 player from the link---

Hi there
I have to agree with CRTN on this one, i also had the same Sandisk player and ran into the same problem. I got rid of it for that reason!
I was later told there was a bug in the firmware which couldn't be fixed, and that it was only power saving!!!
You can try a firmware update, it may work for you!!!!

Good luck

My dolphin inexplicably shuts off for no apparent reason. It's been happening since I charged it last - about 4 uses ago. It'll be playing for 5 to 10 minutes, even 15, then just shuts down. ...


Have you checked the settings? There's one in there for auto-shutoff. I had this happen and it turned out I had accidentally changed this setting.

It keeps turning off


Hello

Try recharging the battery if the MP3 player is not turning on. To recharge the battery, connect one end of the USB cable to the USB port on the MP3 player and the other end to an open USB port on your computer.

Press the "Menu" button if the player keeps turning off periodically. Select the "Settings" option in the Menu and select "Power."

Select "Auto Power Off" and turn off the sleep settings.

Try turning the player back on. If it does not turn on, perform a reset. To do this, press and hold the "Power/Menu" button for at least 15 seconds.

Ipod in sleep mode


How to Enable Sleep Mode :
1. Access the main menu on your iPod
2. Go to the extras menu > clock
3. Select your current time ensuring that your timezone settings are correct
4. Select the Sleep Timer options
5. Select the time that you want your iPod to shut down

And if your iPod goes into Deep Sleep Mode then here is the answer to that :
Right "Deep Sleep" is a battery saving mode if the iPod is not touched in say a 18-24 hour period I think. It reboots (resets) coming out of this mode.

1) There are people reporting that they must always reset their iPod to turn it back on after shutting it off, they don't really mention deep sleep at all, search for "must always reset" or something along those lines

2) I'm not sure if this is documented anywhere specifically. It is a normal function of the iPod that we discovered somewhere along the line. Not sure where the first talk about it came from, you may find information on this searching "deep sleep" there was a hack to force the iPod immediately into deep sleep once upon a time.

3) Not exactly. If an iPod has gone into deep sleep, plugging it into the power will automatically start the reboot. In the case of buttons you should be able to touch a button and it will start to reboot, I have found with my 3G iPod it takes a very deliberate touch or two or three touches to the touch sensitive buttons to get it to wake up, but you shouldn't HAVE to do the reset command (i.e. menu/select button held down), if you do you may be looking at more of the original problemin #1

My Stilletto 10 doesn't reliably record programmed talk shows. I leave it on and plugged into my car kit (yes, it is powered by a plug that stays on when the car is off) and when I come back it is...


Is it set for auto shut down? It took me months to properly record with this thing, frustrating at best. Now it's almost flawless. Go in to menu then settings then dock. In that menu you will see "Auto Shutdown". If this is on, your receiver will shut off after 4 hours only when plugged into the car dock. When on a home dock it will stay on. Turn this off and it will stay on until you shut down. Auto shutdown is the default setting. If for some reason you receiver is reset, you will need to check this setting again, because it will turn auto shutdown on again. Hope this helps.

Auto shutoff


Go to "Settings" -> "Auto Shut-Off" - there i set a time like 5 or 10 minutes, and press the "enter"

The auto shut off is if the device is left idle for that amount of time.

It does not function as a sleep timer, per say.

I hope this helps

Thank you

Just shut down


The player has a sleep timer - change the auto shut-off option 180 minutes or so - it will only shut off every 3 hours in that instance - read your manual for more specifics
