Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Sandisk e250 My sandisk was working fine until today. When I went to turn it on the screen said sandisk as normal, but then the screen jumbled up and stayed like that, it was frozen i could not get it to do anything. I tried taking out the battery but that did not work. What should I do?

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

My Sandisk e260

press and hold the menu/power button until the player shuts off then wait for 10 seconds then turn the player on. This is usually cause by bad files in the device.

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.
