Question about SanDisk Sansa c250 (2 GB) MP3 Player (SDMX7-2048)

1 Answer

Sansa c250 won't stay turned on...

Getting it to turn on is a miracle sometimes. it just doesn't seem to work that well. almost always, if i plug in my headphones after it's turned on, it immediately shuts off. it is more sensitive to movement than it should be - it shuts off after moving just a little. other times it will shut off after i press any button, whether it is my volume key or a button to navigate thru menus. I haven't dropped it on a hard surface or anything, so i don't know what it could be...

thanks for any help

    i've looked at the cnet site before, but that was no help. i was wondering if there was anything that i could do to fix it, or is it a goner?

    thanks

Does not detect


Windows Media player should detect it. Try firing up WMP and then plug in your player. If that doesn't work, try updating WMP while the players connected? If that doesn't work. Do you have the updater installed? Might help.

I ned software


I just got a sansa c250 mp3 player. I loaded mp3 music onto it and it played but I couldn't control it. The buttons wouldn't respond. It would always just start from the first track but I couldn't stop it without turning it off. So I tried to format and reinstall the music but I lost the basic files/software initially on it, Can I get the software anywhere. Do I have a bad unit? The buttons don't seem to work. Thanks!

Invalid image on sansa c250


hold the record button
plug in the usb jack
release the record button
this should put it in the right mode.
then you need to reinstall the correct firmware.
since sansa doesnt post this on their website, check out the anythingbutipod forums

My c250 turns on, but not in the way I would like it.


Try a hard RESET by holding the POWER and the MENU for about 15 to 20 seconds. That may reset the player back to the factory settings.

Sansa


I had the "Refresh Database" problem with my C250, it just sat there after turning it on! However, the GOOD NEWS is, I corrected it! First I connected it to my PC, then FORMATTED the unit. This gave me an empty player that at least would turn on. Then I downloaded the Sansa "Updater" from the SanDisk website. After setting up the updater software, I connected the C250. It automatically checked for any new firmware, and loaded it into the player. After that I restarted the C250 and it again came up OK without any music loaded. The last thing I did was to load only 1.8 GB worth of music files. My take on the problem is that if you overload the memory, or interupt a file while loading, then the "datbase" function never gets done. I've had mine running for about a week now without problems! Hope it works for you too! <Good Luck> David

HELP ME PLZ


That's a pretty weird problem. The only suggestion I can give you is to check to make sure the music you put on was 1) in mp3 or wav format and 2) if this is music you have purchased, to ensure you have the rights properly set to play the music

Sansa c250 not working at all!


2 Suggestions: 1) It may be that the battery isnt charged, let the unit charge fully 2) If that doesnt work, its probably time to send the unit back to sandisk
