Question about SanDisk Sansa c140 MP3 Player

1 Answer

When I turn on my Sansa c140 it shows the Sandisk screen and then it Flickers to black and the back to the Sandisk screen. none of the buttons work when the player is turned on. You have to pull the battery out to turn it off. This Happened about 1 year ago. It happened when I dragged and dropped music to it manually from my computer? I used the Rhapsody program before i dragged and dropped. All I want to do is get the music off the player to my computer. I dont care about the functionality.

My Sandisk Sansa C140 only display sandisk logo


You can update the firmware. This will return your device to factory settings and fix any internal errors. All your current content will be deleted.

Download this file:

This is the firmware update utility for Sanca c140 (c100 series) devices.

There is a howto.txt file included, follow the instructions.I am posting the instructions here for convenience.


1. Download the attached file and save it on the desktop.
(the player should not be attached to the computer at this point)
2. Double click the file to run it.
3. Accept the license agreement.
4. Remove the battery from the mp3 player.
5. Press and hold the center (select) button and connect it to the computer (keep holding the button, this is the firmware update mode).
6. If the New Hardware Wizard appears (now you can let go of the select button), do the following: (if asked, choose not to connect to the internet for updates), then choose to install the device automatically, then follow the prompts to finish the installation.
7. When the wizard comes up, or when the Update button becomes active (whichever happens first), you may release the select button.
8. Click the Update button, and then click OK to the message that comes up.
9. Wait until the upgrade finishes, then unplug the device.
10. Put the battery back in, and turn on the player.
11. Hopefully the update will be performed, then choose English for the language when prompted.
12. Check if the issue is resolved.

Sansa c140 screen frozen


Try a "hard reset". Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds to shut off. With the device off, press and hold the vol + and the center select button. Power it back on, see if that works. You can add to the question if you have more questions. Best of Luck.

Hello, having trouble with my mp3 player SanDisk c140.


Solution is pretty simple.

Go to Settings on your device -> USB -> Change it to MSC.

When you connect it to your computer on Win2000 it will show as a drive. Open the drive you should see the folders. Drag and drop your mp3's into Music* folder. Or your videos into Video folder and your Photos to Photos folder.
