Turn off the player after turning it off. Perform recovery mode ( Enable hold switch + Press Record button + Power/Menu button ) until it says welcome to recovery mode and perform the update for the player. Then after doing that you may have to format the player. :D

Was working fine until today and now the consle flashes and if its not flashing the screen is just all pixeled pimk and green

Sounds like the connector pins are dirty,Try opening the front and giving it a blast of compressed air.or a good heavy blow with your breath.

Jumbled screen on LG CU515

Your phone has a LCD (liquid crystal display) and if it is dropped or gets a chemical or even water on it it can damage the fragile insides of your phone. Is there a gas at the shelter that could be affecting it? Barring that, take it to your provider and have them analyze the problem. That is a free service. Good luck.

It just died and the instructions worked until a certain point

Our player had died after we re-formatted it and forgot to update. oops. =) but this worked. Thanks much for the post.

the follwing link supports these sansa devices.
Devices supported:

( I did exactly what was posted, new link if you don't already have this on your pc. )

  1. Turn the switch on the top of the player to 'Hold'
  2. Press the Record button and Menu buttons at the same time until it the player boots (this took a few seconds)

  3. sansa e200 should tell you to move the switch to unlock,
  4. connect it to your pc and it will update the firmware.
