I have a sansa mp3 e280 and when i turn it on it says load image failed

i am assuming the image file means the boot loader, the problem is a bad flash can cause this mostly. also note that if you tried to update the firmware you will have to either re flash it. or send to factory for repair. better to not update new components.firmware if this is the case, they often become bricked units.

Plz help...

A firmware update. Same happens to my friend's unit yp-u2(x) a 512 mb model.


1. Download and install firmware updater.(manufacturer's support site)just key in model number and type.

2. Run updater, press and hold play button until its been detected fully by the updater.

3. Check the format box(My friend's unit firmware ver is to something when updated).

4. Hit the update button or something like that. do not detached the unit until its done. Unmount the unit using unmount method "Safely remove hardware".

5. Turn on the unit it should pass the 20 percent mark. When its good it has no file yet coz of format option. Just load your song.

I think it happens when too much file is upload in the unit. 60 percent of its capacity may be enough.

Hope it helps............

If this happened after updating your firmware, the Sansa FAQ from here says try this -

03. "Load image failed" appears after updating e200 firmware Applies to the following Operating Systems:
  1. Windows XP, Vista
This error may be caused by the firmware failing to load or the file system is corrupted.
STEP 1 – Reset the player
  1. Press and hold the Power button for approximately 30 seconds.
  2. Turn the player back on.
If the error persists, proceed to steps 2 and 3.

  1. Turn off the player.
  2. Slide the Hold/Lock switch on top of the player so an orange color is showing.
  3. Press and hold the REC button and connect the device to the computer.
  4. A message will appear on the device display screen confirming the connection and a 16MB partition will be viewable in My Computer.
  5. Release the REC button.

System fail

I had the same problem with a YP-U3 and was able to fix it by installing upgrades from the Samsung website. First I downloaded an firmware upgrade from ver. 1.11 to ver. 1.13. The upgrade consists of two winzip files that need to be copied to the system folder on the YP-U3. After the two files were copied, the firmware upgraded itself when the MP3 player was turned on, but I still got a "system fail" message. Then I downloaded the latest version of Samsung Media Studio 5.2 from The Media Studio menu has a function for reformatting the MP3 player, which clears all data files but leaves the operating system intact. After that was done, the MP3 player worked properly.

Failed to Load Files

I was able to access the play list using Windows Media Player. I was trying to get the computer to recognize the player, and it wouldn't do it. I even downloaded the Lyra Personal Audio Player updater... that didn't work or recognize the player.
Try the programs that are on your computer for playing MP3's.

Cannot turn on

You can reset your Lyra player at any time by depressing and continually holding the power button for a minimum of 10 seconds. Upon releasing of the power button, the unit should reset. If it does not, we recommend that you try again by depressing and holding the power button for up to 20 seconds. Constant pressure is required to depress the button for this duration. Second, download the latest firmware for your player. As for the unit freezing I figured out that it has to do with WMA files. try to re-coded your WMA's to MP3. I think it just has to do with the firmware not liking WMA very much. Use MP3 format only and I think you will be fine.
