Mp3 turns off/on wont charge

Hi

I have a scandsik e280 mp3 player and it will turn on, go t the scan disk screen then it goes whiter and does the same thing over and over again. i plug it in to my computer, but the computer will net register it, nor can i charge it anymore. I just added music from napster right before this happened, so i am not sure if this had something to do with it. any help would be great.

thanks

2 connect your sansa to your comp via usb cable a box should show up saying the firmware version
3 close the window and disconnect your sansa (it will restart)

it may be a loose battry connection. try opening the player and reseating the battery. if that does not work, you may have to get a return from sandisk if your warrenty is still valid.

The screen wont come on


try resetting the player by holding the power button. your player may be "bricked" in which case you may have to get a return from sandisk.

Restart


try doing this and let me know if it goes into recovery mode
1. with mp3 off slide the hold button to on so it locks
2.hold down record button on left hand side and keep held down
3. whilst holding record turn mp3 on still hold down record it should now be in recovery mode if your mp3 player gets this far then it can be fixed.
Once in recovery mode goto sandisk site and you need to goto downloads and download latest firmware for your make and model once downloaded it will talk you through how to istall this onto your mp3 player if you have any problems let me know ok

Have you tried recharging the battery? If it is not showing when you connect it to your computer, try holding down the Menu/On-Off button for 15 - 30 seconds and see if it goes on. 
If you need a new battery this is a good place to get one:
