Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player
I charged my sansa e260 overnight, and when I unplugged it an turnedit on in the morning, only the blue light on teh scroll wheel lit up. i couldn't turn it off ( no, not even holding it for 20 seconds) so i let it sit there and shut it'self off. I've tryed re-syncing it, resetting it, doing the whole thing with the hold and record buttons,and even going so far as to cursing and yelling at it, but nothing works!! any suggestions?
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
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: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx
