Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Screen won't work.

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

Blue screen


Remove your back plate and slip the battery out for a second. Should clear it right up no problem. Next time make sure to close programs that might be using the device before unplugging it.

WON'T TURN ON


I just got an e260 today and had the same problem. When I originally turned it on the Hold was in the 'locked' position. From there on out the screen has been black. When it was plugged in nothing happened either. The Solution? Hold the power button for about 20 or so seconds. The manual doesn't tell you about it, but that's how you completely shut the sansa down altogether. Yes, the manual says it's also a reset button but it isn't mentioned how you actually use it. Once you hold that button down long enough it should completely shut down and restart.
