Slide the power button on your SanDisk Sansa MP3 player up.

  • 2 Hold the power button on your Sansa in the up position for about 15 seconds. This action serves as a powering down of the Sansa device.
  • 3 Wait for your Sansa MP3 player to restart and let go of the power button. Actions taken during your last operation since powering down normally have been deleted and your player is now reset.

    Sansa m240 player plays maybe one song with new batteries


    Mine's a clip, but same problem. When I plugged it in, we compared it against my sisters, and a file was missing. See if anyone you know has the same player, and try to transfer the file if this is the same problem as mine

    Regarding sansa battery


    Battery is rechargeable by plugging into computer. 19 hours is probably not right - more like 8 or 9.

    Sansa's website has manuals, faq's and more at:

    make sure you pick Sansa "Fuze" for the m240 series

    Frozen screen


    Hold down the power button for 20 or more seconds; when you release the power button, the Sansa Connect will restart on its own. If it doesn't restart, you did not hold down the power button long enough -- try again.

     

    Make sure there's a battery in the player. This doesn't work when it is plugged into the USB port.

    try removing the battery of the player for around an hour then put the battery back in. If it still freezes on that part maybe your songs are corrupted try reformatting the player.
