Question about SanDisk Sansa e200 MP3 Player
It's broke. No question about it. You can either upgrade, or if you're not scared of hacking into the mp3 you can use my solution for when I break the screen on my e280. Disclaimer, this can easily cause damage, nothing is guaranteed when you do this and it in in no way risk free. I am not responsible. When I break my screen ( which I've done 4 times now) I get a used mp3 off ebay ( I've found that any e200 series will work. However, if you get/have an R version the end result- which I will from now on call frankenp3- may/ may not be an R version, but this should not affect anything else.) Once I have the new one I make sure the screen works and that it is mainly functional ( the hardware in the frankenp3 will be mainly from the Ebay one so it still has to have some functionality even though it doen't need everything to work). Once I confirm that it works I take the backs off (remove the 4 screws and pry with your fingernail), the fronts off (remove the 4 screws and pry with your fingernail- just pry more gently) and pull the boards out of their plastic carrier by- after pressing the middle screw on a outlet plate- gently tilting the bottom end of the board( the one with the USB port) and pulling the board completely out. Flip the boards over. In the top right corner there is a second board floating on top of the main board. This is the memory module take the memory module from the old mp3 and put it in place of the memory module on the ebay board. You now have all the data from the old mp3 on your new mp3 and have probably fixed any problems it had. now just reassemble and it should be ready to use.
