Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

Navigation ring not working

The navigation button is not working correctly, when you go to turn volume up, it turns it down, when you turn it down, it turns it down - when plugged into the computer, it froze on the SanDisk start-up screen. Tried 20 second reset - got it off the start-up screen but button still not working - defective?? Had it for about 2 months only!

My sansa e260's navigation wheel lights up but the screen is blank. what do I do . It may be the battery is completely dead. Bob L.

Your battery is not dead because if it was, then navigation wheel would not be lighting up. Your screen is blank because when you touch the navigation wheel, you probably decrease the brightness of the screen. Turn the wheel counterclockwise, as this will brighten up the screen display. Press the center button when done. Reply back if this solution does not help.

Navigation ring came off

The scroll wheel should click into place if you push on it. There are small plastic ridges around the inner hole of the scroll ring that act as clips. If these ridges are worn down, it will no longer click in. The DR-1 is a good recorder, but cheaply constructed.

Rizone 32gb. Only charging to 3 bars instead of 4 and this takes hours and hours. Can't find shuffle setting and can't drag and drop music. On screen it shows as gone in but when i check player music has...

To charge your player, with the player on OFF, connect it to a computer or other charging device. Then, after everyting is connected, then turn your player to ON. (For some reason, my player doesn't charge if it is already ON while being connected to the computer or other device.) It will charge.
This is the solution that I use for the music. Connect you player to the computer. Turn it ON after being connected. Go to FILE NAVIGATIONN. Copy your music there. (not in any forler, but as a separate entry in FILE NAVIGATION) Next, disconnect your player from the computer. (Use the SAFELY REMOVE HARDWARE feature for this.)

On the player, there is a PLAY button (NOT THE ONE MARKED "M", BUT THE ONE WITH THE RIGHT FACING ARROW WITH THE TWO BARS) next to the volumn button. After going into the FILE NAVIGATION menue, scroll down to the song(s) and/or music you want to move. Click the song using PLAY. You will see three options: MOVE, COPY, and DELETE. Scroll down to the MOVE option. In the main menue of FILE NAVIGATION, scroll down to MUSIC. Now click the "M" button (the one next to the button with two arrows and one bar). A screen will come up that says that the file is being moved. The song will now be in the MUSIC folder.

You could use the COPY or DELETE features for their respected funtions if you want to when these functions appear.

This is as complete as I can make it.

I cant turn volume up on my sandisk clip

My problem seems to be a damaged volume button. Once I tour the volume down (the down button is fine) I could not increase back de volume.
This is a palliative sollution. You need to reset you Sansa clip to get the volume set to the "middle" of the range. To steps are:
1) clique in the "home" button.
2) navigate to "settings"
3) select the "Reset All" option and confirm it.
