Question about SanDisk Sansa E280 MP3 Player

1 Answer

I plugged my sansa e280 into a ipod speaker system and now battery is not working. Did I burn it out or hurt the player? It got real hot and I couldn't turn the player off after I unplugged it from the ipod speaker doc, and took the battery out as fast as I could find a small screw driver. Now the battery won't charge. Did I wreck my mp3 player or just the battery?? Ugh!

You could have fried it if it overheated. If you have a friend with this same mp3 player, try to swap batteries and see if the battery is the problem or if it is the mp3 player itself.

Hello i'm venkat.. i have a problem in my sansa 8gb ipod ..its got shut down due to low battery and when i was recharging it, it's not getting on.... could u please tell me the address where it can be...


You could send in the Sansa E280 to here: http://www.pdasmart.com/pda-battery-center/battery_SANDISK_SanDisk-Sansa-e280_battery_center.htm

They will replace your battery for you.

You could also purchase the battery here: http://www.amazon.com/Sandisk-Sansa-Battery-E200-E250/dp/B003E4WL6K and install it yourself.

How do I replace the battery on the Sansa e200 player?
1. Remove the back on the e200 by removing the 4 screws.
2. Lift off the back by using a finger nail or a small flat head screw driver. It will not take a lot of force to remove. NOTE: When replacing the e200 battery be sure that the contacts on the battery line up with the contacts on the player.
3. The battery has three gold contacts on one end of the battery, which is near the words SanDisk Sansa. Be sure these contacts match up with the three gold contacts on the back of the player.
4. Lightly push the lined up battery up against the contacts of the player until the bottom end of the battery can be pushed into place.
5. Replace the lid to the back of the player and then plug the player into the computer using the Sansa cable.
6. Once the player has connected to the computer and is ready to be used or says "Connected", unplug the device. NOTE: If the device goes directly to a black screen after unplugging it, then the battery has been replaced incorrectly. Take the back off the player once again and flip the battery around and the e200 device should work properly.

Is there a way to have my 2009 Challenger recognize my Sansa e280 via the UCI cord? My car owner's manual says only an ipod has the capability. Is there a driver or software download I can add to my Sansa...


The connector on the bottom of the Sansa is NOT compatible with the connector on the iPod. Sansa does not provide any hardware or software to make their devices emulate another manufacturer's device.

If your car has the appropriate connector, you can connect the Sansa via the headphone jack so you can hear your music through the car's speakers.

Sansa plugged into Ipod music player - won't work now


Yep - it's a sad thing. iPod docks have ruined many a good mp3 player. Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from Sandisk's website (make sure the Sansa is not plugged into the computer yet). Once the Recovery Tool is downloaded, connect the Sansa to the computer while holding in the REC button and continue to hold it even after th player is plugged in. It should go into Recovery Mode in 10-15 seconds or so.

My sansa e280 will not play on the docking station or computer.


Two problems:
1) Your Sansa (and just about any other mp3 player) will not play while it is connected to the computer - it is only supposed to play once it is disconnected from the computer
2) Your docking station might be for brand-name iPod's only - using an incompatible docking station is one possible way to ruin your player

Get a simpler external speaker system with an audio jack that runs from the headphone jack of Sansa to the input jack of the docking station.

getting warm is normal I've never seen one get HOT, you can pull out the battery from these players very easey by removing 4 screws from the back of the player take it out for a minute and this should reset the player, if not you may need a new battery these are on Amazon for short money.

Sansa e280 "frozen" won't turn off or respond to buttons pushed


I had the same freeze problem and after doing everything I could think of I read the downloaded user manual and found the answer was to hold down the menu button for 15 seconds. It acts as a power off button and cancels out the last operation thereby unfreezing the offending action.
