MP3 Won'T TurN on PLZ HELP!

So I droped the MP3 and when i tried to turn it on, it wouldn't turn on. The blue ring doesn't even turn on. Nothing does. But when i hook the USB wire to the MP3 and the computer, it turn on...but it says "refresh database" and loads...then it the screed switches and says "connecting"...and i can't get anywhere with the USB wire connected because its charging...(i think)...My computer recognizes it and everything, it's when i disconnect the USB fromt the computer and MP3, it won't turn on...and it doesn't give a sign...It's jus plain out dead. What do i do???

Re: MP3 Won'T TurN on PLZ HELP!

When you dropped it, the batter became loose from the contacts inside, therefore it doesnt charge, but lights up when you connect it to the computer. Remove the 4 screws on the back, then take out the battery and then press it in firmly. Charge the device for about 2 hours. Please add to the question for additional assistance. Best of Luck.

Sounds like you may have a dodgy power button, you have a 1 year warranty I would call or e-mail sum vision, I have one of these systems and there not bad I've not had a power button problem though. Hope this helps!

Nothing happens when it turns on

What I did for mine was just reset it. Hold down the big round center button and the start button at the same time for at least 20 seconds. It will turn off, then try turning it back on and see what it does. Mine is working fine again (the "key locked" message just meant that I had the hold button on! woops.)

My Sansa e260 4gb player wont turn on at all nothing is happening with the blue ring or when pluged in to the computer it just stopped working after I pluged into the computer to charge

It's dead. Throw it out and buy an i-pod. My e280 did the
same thing. One day: fine, the next day: Blue Ring of Death.
I have tried everything on the internet, even downloaded Ubuntu and typed in all the e200tool Nuclearscriping BOARDSUPPORTSD and Manufacturing Mode commands. Nothing. It's dead 2months out of warranty. Piece of %$#@!!

Why won`t my mp3 take itself off hold?

Power & Hold switch
Slide and hold in the opposite direction
of the arrow for power on/off.
Slide in the direction of the arrow to
lock the button functions.

If that fails,
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, 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.

No recovery no firmware... nothing works with my ipod

me too! The only thing that the Sansa left is the blue ring. I formatted the e250 and the software all gone not even in recovery mode. Is anybody know how to re-install it from the bottom?
