Hello, You should check on EBAY as there are people selling non functioning broken units cheap and usually in lots (multiple pieces). Get the necessary replacement parts you need there and do a part swap on your unit.

if there are no visible marks or cracks on the plastic case itself then it sounds like the LCD screen behind the plastic protective screen is cracked or damaged (especially if its been dropped, or had a lot of pressure put on it e.g. left in a pocket when sitting down, heavy object on it), if its new i would consider taking it back with the receipt for a replacement.
otherwise it will need someone with some repair skills to replace the screen.
If the interior screen is cracked, get the player replaced. You can go to YouTube and see the videos of how other peopel have tried to repair their screens, but the methods usually fail/cause more damage.
Sorry to hear about the screen on your Sansa E250 MP3 player. It sounds like the Liquid Crystal Display screen has broken. It's possible that the damage is repairable but to be honest due to the high cost of electronic repair it may not actually be cost effective to do so.
You can contact SanDisk to get service information. They can give you a basic idea of what it would cost to get an estimate on repairs and the average cost. Their webite is http://www.sandisk.com.
While the LCD display for many MP3 players may be replaceable, in some cases the availability and cost of doing so might make repairs uneconomical.
I would first suggest checking with the manufacturer of the MP3 player (SanDisk) to see if the screen is sold as an individual component or as part of an assembly - this can often give you a good idea of how much repairs may cost, before any labor charges are factored in. Keep in mind that not all manufacturers may offer replacement parts for their LCD screens if the model has been discontinued or is currently subject to a recall.
Once you've gotten a good idea how much replacement parts may cost, you may wish to then speak with your local repair facility for more information regarding any potential installation charges.
If you are still unsure how to proceed, remember that you can always bring your MP3 player into a Geek Squad® agent at your local Best Buy™ store for further assistance.
My best advice is to get a junk player from ebay or other source,one that has a good screen. There are only 4 screws that hold the screen on,once you remove the back. With a small phillips screwdriver and about 10 minutes you can replace the screen.
If it's just the faceplate (and not the underlying actual LCD) you could replace it with the intact faceplate from an otherwise defective unit. Any of the e200 series should fit. Try that online auction site to see if you can find a cheap defective one, just make sure the faceplate isn't cracked before you bid.
These mp3 players should *always* be placed in one of those clear protective cases. I have mine not only in a clear plastic case, but also in a leather case with a belt clip. Never just stick it in your pocket as that will surely lead to a damaged headphone jack.
I've tried to get a replacement LCD for my SANSA, impossible so far.
There are some PARTS/REPAIR SANSA's on ebay, but must of them with the same problem. There was also a working LCD, I just fail on bidding.
If you can get a working LCD, the replacement is possible with a blower, directing heat to the specifyc connectors area, you can remove the broken one while the glue (some kind of silicon) is warm and flexible, you have to be careful when putting the new one, pins must be aligned, also you should do that whith both (broken and wkring) at the same time, so then you can use the glue still on the pins (golden connectors) area.
I got to remove the broken one and noticed (with my fingers) that the silicon can be used again, but since I didn't use a blower some of the pins (connectors) where damaged. Only halve of the process is confirmed.
Good luck, we'll wait 4 your results if you get a working LCD somewhere..
