Music outside the iPod

You can't because you can't. It is not a speaker that is meant for music, last time i checked it was pseudo something but forgot the exact name, its not able to make audio, just ticking sounds. Its sort of like the 'beep' that happens when your computer starts, you can't make that speaker play music it just beeps..

Shut off and wont trun back on

Hmm, this seems to have happened to me as well. Only, the screen is dimly lit, though black, so mine is not officially off; just not operating.

Stuck Screen

It seems as thought the player itself has actually frozen. I have the same player and it has never done this to me. If you havent allready try leaving it alone in a quiet place for a day or two until it runs out of battery. Then plug it in to your PC to charge and it should be okay. As this has happend to me with other players. If it isnt however, try to resolve the issue by somehow updating the firmware. Try googling "SanDisk Sansa e260 Firmware Upgrade" and see what you can find. If there is something which looks hopeful try it, but if it doesnt work, the perhaps the only option is to return or exchange the player at its place of purchase. P.S Check the USB modes.

My sansa e260 isnt turning on

Well for starters, clear some memory. It sounds like the player is trying to turn on but failing as there is not enough free flash memory for it to use in a RAM like fashion. If youre using windows enable the view of hidden files folders. [Start> Control Panel> Appearence and Themes>Folder Options then browse through the tabs until you find a list which has the option "show hidden files and folders". Then plug in your e260 and go into the larger removeable drive. Then go into the folder "VIDEO" or "PICTURES" or "MUSIC and delete some files. Then once you have deleted at least 100MB, unplug and restart the player. This should fix your problem if it doesnt. Consider formatting the removeable disc, or updating the firmware. [However take extreme caution with formatting the disk to ensure that it does not contain the program files needed to run the player.

Ticking noise

The ticking noise is the arm inside the hard drive swinging back and forth in an effort to find the first sector of the drive. Best guess is a stuck spindle on which the platters ride. Another common name for this condition is called "stiction." If you feel comfortable, you can take the hard drive out and remove the cover off of it. Then, gently take your index finger and touch the edge of the platter and attempt to turn it. DO NOT touch the surface of the platter or play with the servo arm. You must do this in a dust free environment and as quickly as possible. Otherwise, you can take it to someone who is familiar with hard drive repair. Once it is working, you will need to a backup of the drive. Also, you will need to replace the drive because it will stick again. Good luck.

If you open the Sansa as normal Win file directory, can you see them? Is "Show Hidden Files" enabled in the file options?
