Sansa MP3 player has frozen screen

With the Sandisk you can just open up the battery compartment and pop the battery out for a second, then if you put it back in and turn the mp3 player on, it should work just fine. This is easier to do with the older ones that take AAA's, but unfortunately with the e250 you need a little screwdriver to remove the battery. (But the other day I used the flat part of a piece of jewelry; you can use whatever you have :D )

Sansa disk e 260

I had the same problem with mine freezing. It happened when I kept pressing the back track button (on left side) to go back to an earlier song. It then froze in the middle of a song, couldn't hear the song, the time of the song was frozen, etc., and the unit stayed lit, despite pressing all the buttons. I tried holding down power but nothing happened. I read another person's post that you need to hold it down 15-30 seconds. I did this and it worked, you just have to hold it down until it shuts down, which was about 15 seconds as suggested, could be longer for others.
For me, next time I wont keep clicking the tracks repeatedly, I'll simply go out of the song and back to the song I want through the menu.
Thank you for the good posts. Glad I didn't have to mess with the battery like others....

Sansa completely frozen

Try removing the batteries to force it to shut down. Wait about 30 seconds, then put the battery back in. This will force the Sansa to restart, after which it should work.

No power

Sounds like it may be frozen.

Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds, then try turning it on.

If that doesnt work, remove the 4 screws on the back and take out the battery. Leave it out for a minute or two, then put it back in place and try powering it on.

Best of Luck.
