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

    Record voice to file
    Once the Recorder screen appears, you can record to your voice. Follow these steps:
    1. Press the Power/Menu Button once. The SanDisk logo will appear onscreen after a moment then disappear. (Can’t find the Power/Menu Button on your player? See The Basic Controls section on page 3.)
    2. Press the Power/Menu Button on the right side of your player. The software Menu will appear. Use the Repeat/AB/Down Button to scroll and highlight Recorder Modes. Press the Select Button to Recorder Modes
    3. Press the Play/Pause/Up Button to start recording.
    4. During the recording, If the Play/Pause/Down Button is pressed, the recording will be pause, and if the Play/Pause/Down Button is pressed again, the recording will be started again.
    5. For stop recording, you have two choices:
    􀂄 Press the Repeat/AB/Down Button.
    􀂄 Press the Power/Menu Button.

Deep sleep mode


You didn't post the Acer Model or the OS you are using? Here is a Windows 7 solution. Open the Control Panel, select Power Options, select High Performance, select Change Plan Settings, under Plugged In, set Display time, set SLEEP to Never, select Change Advanced Power Settings, scroll through the settings and set SLEEP and Hibernate to NEVER, set others to your preference. Always Shut down your laptop when not in use to prevent damage due to power surges and a reboot/reset of the laptop is a good thing.

How do i set the timer? i use it for my alarm.


Which timer do you want to use? To use the On/Off Timer, press Menu and use the navigation arrows to select Time. Press Enter and navigate (up/down arrows) to select either On Time or Off Time. Press Enter and then use the up/dwon arrows to select Repeat. Select the frequency for the timer function (off, once, everyday etc.) with the left/right arrows. Use both the up/down and left/right arrows to set the time (hour or minute). Press Return to return to the previous menu and Menu to leave the OSD menus. For the On Time, you can also select the input source that will be shown when the TV comes on. (Select Input similarly to the above directions and set the desired channel if the source is TV.) The time must be for this to work (select Time and then Clock then Auto (gets the time from a digital channel) or Manual) and the TV must be in Standby mode for the On Timer to work. The TV will go into standby in two hours after coming on unless a button is pressed on the remote or the TV. The Off timer will override the TV On if they are set for the same time.

The Sleep timer is set in the same Time area or in the Q.menu (from the remote). Select Sleep time and then the length of time you want the tv to stay on before going to sleep. This is reset when the TV goes off.

The Shut-off time is set in the Time menu as well; select Auto Sleep. When this is on (on/off options), the TV will shut off after 10 minutes without a signal.

I 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

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
