Re: my sansa e250 wont charge all the way

Well ... i will show you different way to recharge any plear with USB recharge options...

Now... first sorry for my english but... iam from Bulgaria ...
second: you'll need a adaptor from GSM mobile with 5 or equivalent voltage output.Next step: remove part of cover cable on USB cable on mp3/4 and search for red cable it is "+" split with plus on the adaptor of GSM, next ... "-" it must be arround all cables on mp3's USB cable, split with "-" on GSM adaptor. Isolate fine and when you connect GSM adaptor into contact and USB cable into mp3 .. the mp3 will charge fine! Its possible and in manual of SANSA is writen! :) I try and successed!

congratulations - spellsingero, Bulgaria

My mp3 sansa won't turn on or charge.

If it freezes up, wont charge or just wont turn on... slide the power button up for 15-20 seconds then turn it on. That should work everytime. good luck

Mp3 player wont play songs or anything

Only 2 suggestions here: 1) Make sure your HOLD switch is not enabled. 2) Try to update the firmware If neither of these work, time to send the unit back to Sandisk

Sansa won't charge or load.

Plug it into the computer (the cord you would use to charge it and transfer files), and hold down the power button for at least 15 seconds. The Sansa should then begin to turn on and start charging. :)
