Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

It just died and the instructions worked until a certain point

Today out of no where my screen turned blue & the light of the wheel thing didnt turn off the whole time. I just left it until it died. Then I got home, put it to charge & it worked for a little bit. Then it just turned off on me completely. After I went online looking for a solution & found the instructions under me ( there's more but I only copied where I got up to). Everything was working just fine until when I entered the sansa program it said something that it couldn't read because it needed to be in msc mode, & mine says its in msd mode. What do I do?



1. Make sure the player is powered off
2. Enable the "Hold" switch (located on the top of the player). You would know it's enabled when you see the "orange-colored" surface
3. Press the "Record" button. Make sure you keep it pressed while pressing on the "Menu" button.
4. keep your fingers pressed on these 2 buttons until the E250 LCD screen displays "Welcome to Recovery Mode"
5. Connect your E250 to your computer. (Just a reminder: The minimum Operating System requirements for a Sansa E200 player is Windows XP and above)
6. Double-click on "My Computer" and you would see your Sansa E250 appear as a "16 MB" drive. Note: If you do not see that "16 MB" drive/partition, please repeat steps 1-6.

Next, Apply the firmware for the E250 (your player should be connected to your PC at this time):

Step 1:

( I did exactly what was posted, new link if you don't already have this on your pc. http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1376 )

  1. Turn the switch on the top of the player to 'Hold'
  2. Press the Record button and Menu buttons at the same time until it the player boots (this took a few seconds)

  3. sansa e200 should tell you to move the switch to unlock,
  4. connect it to your pc and it will update the firmware.

Toshiba Portege r200 was working normal (up until yesterday). Today, when I first turned it on, the fan was on and it sounded full blast, but screen remained dark (blank). I held power button until it shut...


The part that supplies the power to the screen is gone. I recall is is called the 'exciter'. They can be replaced, so take it to a computer repair shop. Same thing happened to my Toshiba.

Blue Screen


One of two things happened. The light engine died, or if that unit uses a single lamp, it died. Most Mitsubishi's used three lamps leading to the light engine. I am trying to fix my neighbors now and was lucky enough to find an engine for under $300. Dealers will charge between $800 and $1500 to fix this. Confirmation can only be done by a tech inspection. If the power button blinks a specific color or pattern repost with that information.

Hope a solution comes your way, but to start looking for a new one as repairs are = and or more than a new television. Good Luck Rkaler24

Blue light blinking, tank full, water not heating up

You need to prime the machine with water. Fill the water tank. Plug the machine in and turn the power on. Instructions state the lights will flash, but they won't. Blue water drop will illuminate indicating the machine is empty (the water tank is full, but the pipes in the machine are empty until you do the following). Place a cup under the steam wand, and rotate the steam knob fully to the "on" position (fully clockwise as you view it from the side until you hit the hard stop). No need to use force, just rotate until you hear the pump turn on. At this point, you'll hear a pump running, and after 10-30 seconds, water will be ejected from the wand. Continue until the blue light goes out and you're ready to brew. At this point, I think the lights flash and it comes up to temp. One more thing, when using the steam wand, always turn the knob until the pump engages, or you run the risk of emptying the water line. Hope this helps and enjoy!

When I turned on my Toshiba tv today, it has no


Sounds like the speakers have died, it's muted at the source (cable box / satellite box if you have one) or that the cable for audio is loose. Check those three things starting with the last one and you will be able to pin point it.

My 1986 buick century limited will just die in the middle of my driving it. It caught me by complete suprise when I was driving along and all the sudden my service lights are on, the ones that light up...


Sound's like your on the way to fixing the problem, if the drive belt is not working properly it could cause all kind's of problem's, including service light's coming on while driving. i'm guessing when your idle there's no problem, until you start to accelerate the belt is probably slipping on the pulley's. The drive-belt drive's the alternator which charge's the battery, the stalling may be coming from the alternator not charging the battery.

Screen is blank - blue whee in lit


I just encountered the exact same problem with my mp3 player. It is the 2nd time that this has happened to me. I have taken it back to the store both times and they have given me a new one. They keep telling me that illegally downloaded music will cause it to crash but i only had CDs on there. I guess i dont have a real solution other than taking it back and hoping for one that works.
