    Same here! My wheel won't turn at all. I have to spit in it (around the outside of the wheel) to oil it up so it'll turn and it's annoying, not to mention really really gross/disgusting/revolting! I hate myself for doing so every time, but it's the only way to make it work "properly." Please, someone answer! Is there anything we can do? Is there anyone who can lift that little wheel out and fix what's wrong without breaking the sansa or having to buy a new one?! HELP!!

How do I set time on a 4Gb Sansa Fuze?

Press the MENU button to bring up the main menu. "Turn" the command wheel to select "Settings" and press the central button. "Turn" the command wheel to select "System Settings" and press the central button. "Turn" the command wheel to select "Date & Time" (it's not initially on the screen, the screen will scroll when you hit the bottom) and press the central button.

Select the desired field by "turning" the command wheel and either press the central button or click the right side of the command wheel. Change the field by "turning" the command wheel. When you have the field set properly, click the left side of the command wheel and you can then select another field.

When done, repeatedly click the left side of the command wheel to back out of the menu system.

The newly purchased deck belt turning the blades is extremely loose

If idler is in tact and spring attached, it is likely that the belt isn't routed properly. If you try to route the rear-most portion of the belt around the idler, it will be loose. You must route the front-most portion of the belt around the center blade pully and then around the idler. Just Google "MTD 46 inch deck diagram" and you will go to a Parts Tree site with the proper diagram showing routing.

Sansa E250 Black screen lighted wheel, wont do nothing else.

These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out:
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

My sansa e260

This is a strange error indeed, if there's nothin' important on it your best option is to format it and see what happens then.

Also it might help by doing some updates just to see if this is a known bug which Sansa have spotted and fixed by sending out updates for this bug.

It is well known that using mp3 players incorrectly you can loose memory on them but it's very unlikley you would loose all of your space.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful.

you could have downloaded a bug, your motherboard could be damaged. you are going to have to get a new one, but with what you paid for the sansa, it may not be worth it. thank you, connie

My Sansa e280 forze

First, you should see if it can be plugged into the computer properly. If it can then its's really no big deal, just a firmware bug. If not, the only thing I can suggest is performing the master reset be pressing and holding the power button for approx. 15 sec.
