Sansa USB and Charger Problem

I purchased a new USB cable and a new charger for my SanDisk Sansa e260. I plug it in to the USB cable, and nothing happened. Then I plugged it into the charger, and again nothing happened. Since my SanDisk Sansa e260 is now out of power, I can't listen to any of my music now.

    Ok, I replaced the battery on the SanDisk Sansa e260. I turned it on and it worked, but when i tried to plug it into the computer, nothing happened. That goes the same thing with my charger.

SANSA FUZE CHARGER


The Fuze charges through its USB connector. You can plug it into a powered USB port on a computer or a USB charger plugged into a wall outlet. You may already have one of these for your cell phone.
If you need a connector cable, you may order one here. One AC adapter is here.

Where do i get a charger for this i can't find the charge can i buy one at a store like walmart or do i have to buy it on the internet.


You can use any AC-to-USB charger. For my Sansa, I use one that came with a cell phone.

Alternatively, you can plug the Sansa into a computer's powered USB port.

Charger


Your USB port must be repaired. In the meantime, hopefully, your computer has another USB port that you can use. Battery is a replaceable lithium ion rechargeable battery. There are battery chargers that you can connect to wall outlets - the type that plug into the computer would probably require that you plug it into the USB port, which you said is broken - so that's a no-go. There are multiple vendors for battery chargers - one possibility is http://www.greenbatteries.com/

SanDisk e260 Problem


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

Ipod charger


1 question: how did you do that? i thought the Ipod and the sansa have different adapter types? anyway, i'd suggest getting a new battery. and it's probably because the sansa and ipod use don't use the same amount of energy (volts, etc.) that this happened.
