Re: My Sansa turns off by itself...Help?

This happens to me to but only when Im listening to a long playlist and I haven't switched anything in a while, but if you go to "settings" and the to "auto shut-off" you can set the time you want it to auto shut off, usually it is on 5mins, so when the 5 minutes are up that you haven't touched it, it will shut off, i belive you sett it all the way up to 125 minutes, hope this helps!

Completely Wacky 'Sansa e260'

Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the manufacturer?s website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings. That will be the only way

Mp3 player restarts whenever i skip a song

try using recovery mode with the sansa.fmt file and update the firmware. this will erase all your music from the device so you will have to reload all your songs but it will probably fix the issue.

My songs show up in music folder on the drive, but not on the actual player.

Backup the songs on the player, delete them from it and load them back on. This should build the song lists back up.

Stuck in language mode

Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out:

hold down the on button on the bottom left hand side, keep holding it till the sansa turns itself off.  After its turned off switch it back on, ive had the same message up many times

hmm, sounds like the hold button may have a faulty connection. have you checked that it's fully pushed to the left (ie unlocked)?
