Probles with formatting and resync sansa e270

hi! you can try reformatting by activating the keylock and then press and hold the record key while turning the power on. it will go to the recovery mode.

plug the mp3 usb to your pc.

open a notepad apllication and create a new blank file.
save as sansa.fmt and change save as type, it should be All Files. it will create a file with 0 bytes.

you can now disconnect the usb and wait til the mp3 displays formatting.. it will reformat by itself.

My songs were deleted, then my screen turned black.

if you're using limewire to get songs you probably downloaded a corrupted file in which case the best you can do is back up the songs you know arent corrupted and then format the device

My Screen fades away!!

I might know how to finish that problem

I think you might have to go to settings in the sansa and go to backlight. Then choose On.

If this isn't what i'm talking about, try looking for another person that helps.
Hope i helped!
