    when your elbow touched it, did it snap and put a static charge in the device?
    If so you may have fried your device.
    here is what I would try.
    remove the battery and let the device sit for an hour.
    reinstall the battery and see if it comes on. the sansa device should
    have a removable battery.
    Also, I would suggest not playing it on a dock, sometimes the docks will fry your main board without warning.

Did you try the lock on, rec button and the on button as you plugged it into the usb?

SOURCE: how do i delete pics from my sandisc sansa e260.

what you need to do is this. i cant help you if you have a mac but i can help you if you have a pc. for pcs, you need to plug in your player.once its connected, double click "my computer".in it, the player should have registered and their should be an icon that says "sandisk sansa e260" ( or something like that, i couldnt exsactly tell you considering my player is completely busted at the moment.)then you should see a bunch of files.the files will include album art,songs,and folders for videos or pictures.in the pictures folder you can access your pictures,and right click on the files you wish to delte, and simply just...hit delete.

SOURCE: Sansa e260 says connected but device not recognized

I agree with the above suggestion. Try setting the USB Mode under "Settings" on "MSC" on the Sansa. My computer would not recognize the e260 when the mode was set to "MTP"; works fine on "MSC".

This MIGHT fix the problem: Make sure that Windows Explorer is set to show hidden files and folders. In Windows XP, click TOOLS, FOLDER OPTIONS, VIEW and make sure you have selected "Show hidden files and folders".

Sansa shorted out from an ipod dock


that wasnt the best idea to start out with,
but it was a good heads up for me.

uhm,,,, i'd check with sansa to see if you have a warranty available,
otherwise you may have to replace your mp3 player.
not the best news, but its the truth.

Apparently there is a known problem with older firmware with some MP3 files having info in the ID part of the file that makes the player go crazy. So update your firmware or listen to different music :-)

"Bugs Fixed: Stability· Hanging at Refresh Database with certain ID3 tag genres."

This info from page below. Also shows you how to update to latest firmware which may fix your problem

Hmmm...the MP3 parts shouldn't have lined up with the iPod dock. Check that area for damage in case your son accidentally forced it. Otherwise, hold the power button for 15 seconds. That can occasionally jump-start my player, and it turns the player off even if it is frozen.
