Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Will turn on and go turn song but once you hit a button it freezes.

My mp3 player turns on and does all the startup stuff and then goes into the music like it normally would, but then once you hit play it freezes. Hold is off, it won't play music, and you can't turn it off. I had this problem about a week ago and I figured it was a one-time thing so I brought it back and used my warranty to get a new one. It happened again on the new one and I don't feel like having to get a new mp3 player every week. P.S- Both times this occurred it was plugged into a speaker system that is made for any product, so I don't think that's the problem but I just thought you should know. Thanks

Hello format your player to remove any corrupt or bad files in your player. Then after that make sure you are using the latest firmware which is .18A and also make sure that the speaker system you are using is compatible with the device or made for sansa accessories, ensuring you that the device will properly work on it. If not it may work but it will may harm your device and voiding the warranty of it.

I am trying to delete music from my mp3 player and can't figure it out.

once you initialize the mp3 mode and you show a song you want to delete hit the mode button again and it should give you the option to delete a file(song) or delete the folder(all the music).You just have to scroll to the option you want and hit ok(or you center button)

My songs are shuffled

Since you cannot see what you are doing on the screen, I will tell you what buttons to push to un-shuffle your songs. Press the buttons in the exact order I tell you. Ok. Turn off the mp3 player, then turn it back on. Press the little menu button. Push the left arrow button once. Press the play button 3 times slowly. You are now in the menu that gives you the following options to unshuffle your music:
1. Off
2. Repeat single Track
3. Shuffle/No Repeat
4. Repeat all Tracks
5. Repeat all With Shuffle

I'm guessing that you may have to push the down arrow once or the up arrow once. This should select the Repeat all Tracks option. After scrolling up or down one time, press the play button once, then the menu button twice. Now push play to start your music. If this does not work, you can set your player back to the default settings by pushing the menu button once, pushing left arrow once, hit the play button. Scroll down 5 times, hit the play button, and push down 3 times. Be careful, because if you do not push the down arrow THREE times, you might accidentally select the option of erasing the memory.Once you push down 3 times and hit the play button, push down once more to select Yes of reseting your player back to it's original settings. This should help you out.
