Check the battery connection(s) in the back. Remove the 4 screws, remove the battery an re-connect it. Charge the device for a few hours. Best of Luck.

I connect my sansa e250 into my computer and the mp3 player says connected but i see no sansa hardrive and the computer doesnt respond .

Turn Sansa off. Unplug USB and make sure its clean. Plug back in as normal. If no hardrive comes up go to My Computer and look for it and troubleshoot if necessary.

Finally, repeat this action above accept when you turn MP3 off, hold button for 15 seconds - release and then turn back on.

You need to try hooking this back up to the computer then saftly remove it with the icon on your desktop so it sends a down signal to the unit if that does not work a hard reset is in order.

My Sansa e250 won't charge all the way!! Help me!

Sounds like the battery may have come loose in the back, so its not charging.

Take the 4 screws out, remove the battery. The put the battery back in and try charging it.

Best of Luck.

Sansa MP3 player charges, plays while plugged into wall, but not unplugged.

When you plug it into the wall make sure you turn it off and let it charge all the way before you start using it again. see if that helps
