When i turn my sansa e260 on the screen says key locked and under that it says system shutdown

There's a slide switch on the top of the unit, near the headphone jack. Slide the switch away from the jack to unlock the unit.

If that doesn't do it, then the plasic piece under the switch is broken, and you'll have to open the unit to fix it.

Formatting my Sansa e260

Insert your ( memory card , flash disk , cellphone , .... ) into your computer.
Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

I have a sandisk sansa e260 and it keeps saying key locked system is shutdown how do i unlock it

On the top of the sansa, there is a piece that slides back and forth. slide it so that you don't see orange. If you see the orange, that means that it is locked and it can't do anything.
