Sansa e250 PLEASE HELP!

A while ago, my sansa was drained of all its charge (accidentally). Now, every time I try to plug it into my computer to recharge it and try to turn it on, the screen (on the sansa) just says "Battery is too low. System Shutdown".
What should I do???

The battery has come disconnected from the charging contacts in the back.

Remove the 4 screws, remove the battery from the back and re-insert it.

Best of Luck.

I need help on my Sansa e250, if I plug it to a computer or if i charge and even just merely turning it on, it just turn's on and off, my cousin who gave me my sansa told me that the battery was just...

Remove the back and check and see if the battery isn't fully connected
I put a folded peace of paper and put it on top of the battery and put the back on.

Usb mode is in settings push center button choose between msc or mtp....

MSC will allow you to see the expansion card mtp won't.....MTP shows you your music2_bing.gif folder in the media folder thats where you put your music plus expansion.....If no usb mode the player is manufactored to be in msc mode make sure your usb 2.0 driver is installedMSC is best reate a music1 folder and put music in there then there is no switching back and forth to mtp msc

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. :)

Sandisk sansa e200

I had this same problem on my sansa and tryed the previous solution with no luck. Out of frustration i email the sansa technical support. Try these steps to format the player: -Turn on the player and access MENU > SETTINGS > USB > MSC - Once the player is set to MSC mode, reconnect it to the computer and open the My Computer window. - Once you see the Sansa icon in the My Computer window, right-click it and choose FORMAT - In the Format window, choose FAT 32 and make sure that Quick Format is NOT selected, then choose START -Once the format has completed, disconnect the player from the computer to allow it to refresh. If you plan on using Windows Media Player to transfer files, return to the USB menu and set the player to MTP mode. Otherwise, leave the player in MSC mode and you can now resume transferring files. Formatting your player will deleate all files but you can putt them back on!!! Best of luck!

I need help with my sansa e250 mp3 player

Hi. Seems like your player may be encountering some corruption. Try this and see if it would help: Switch your Sansa E250 to its Recovery Mode: 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: Use this link to download the firmware for your Sansa E250 (for better results, please save this file on your "Desktop": Step 2: Double left-click on the downloaded file, and follow the on-screen prompts. The file will automatically re-flash your player and format it as well, thereby clearing all possible file/system corruptions that may have occurred. Step 3: When the process is complete, unplug your E250 from your computer, and please make sure you disable the "Hold" switch Step 4: Power up your E250 and 90-99% of the time, it would boot up successfully. Let me know if this helped :)

Sansa e250

i know i have to charge my sansa for at least 7-8 hours before the battery will show it is full. about your other problem, i believe there is an option under the settings menu to automatically shut your sansa off. If not then you can turn off the backlight and that will save alot of battery life.
