SOURCE: the device freezes after the welcome screen, updater won't work.

It may have the latest firmware already on it. To reset your Sansa Mp3 player2_bing.gif.1. Slide and hold the Power switch up for approximately 20 seconds. 2. Release the Power switch. 3. To turn the player on, slide the Power switch up then release instantly.
If that does not get your player working again, try and Format to clear any corrupt files that may be present.
You will lose all your music - sorry. For the Sansa Clip: 1. From the Main Menu, in the player -> select Settings -> Format. 2. Select Yes.
You can also format using Media Player2_bing.gif if you have unfrozen your player.1. ->start Media PlayerIf you have Media Player 10 --- Connect the Sansa player to the PC in MTP (See next step to change to MTP mode) .
1. Turn the player OFF. 2. Slide the Hold switch down to Lock (orange color showing). 3. Press and hold the center button while connecting the player to the PC with the USB cable. once you have done that...
Click on the Sync tab.(be sure your player shows in the pull down menu2_bing.gif)Click the pencil icon on the upper right corner of the window.Click OK to start formatting. Now if you have Media Player 11---Click the Sync tab.On the left panel, look for the device. It is usually the last device listed.Right-click on the device and select FormatClick OK to format.

Hi pimmi31,

Sounds like you could benefit from performing a firmware update on your unit. Instructions are listed below, and you can also visit http://ow.ly/64ye8 for more information like FAQ's, manuals, software, etc.

Your player is controlled by an internal program called the firmware. Newer versions of the

firmware may have been released after you have purchased your player.


A software program called Philips Device Manager enables you to update the firmware on

your device if a new firmware is available on your PC. Install Philips Device Manager from the supplied CD or download the latest version from www.philips.com/support (see above link for product specific page).


5.1 Manually verify whether your firmware is up

to date


1 Connect your player to the computer.

2 Launch Philips Device Manager from Start > Programs > Philips Digital Audio

Player > SA31XX > Philips SA31XX Device Manager.

3 Make sure you are connected to the internet.

4 Click Update.

> Philips SA31XX Device Manager will check whether a new firmware is available on the

Internet and install it on your player.

5 When Update completed appears on the screen, click OK and disconnect the player.

> A message Updating firmware will be displayed.


The player will automatically restart after the firmware has been completely updated. Your player
is now ready for use again.

My sansa e260 goes black after showing sandisk start up screen and does the same when plugged into a pc. it starts to refresh database and then the screen goes black.


Hi there

When you say the screen goes black even after disconnecting the device from computer it could be an issue with the firmware.
It might need to have updated firmware. To get the updated firmware please go www.sandisk.com.

Where you can get the latest firmware for your model.
*** Make sure when you update the firmware keep the device in MSC mode.

Here is the link for updating the firmware:

Philips GoGear Firmware Upgrade
You need to get the latest firmware upgrade from the Philips website:
1. Go to www.philips.com/support
2. Enter your country/language
3. Enter your model # SA1333 or whatever
4. Click on the link for your exact model # (the one w/o the "B" in it)
5. Click on "Software & Drivers"
6. Download the updated "Device/Firmware Manager"
7. Once installed, open the Philips Device Manager
8. Click on the "Update" tab, then the "Update" button (with your mp3 player connected to the computer, of course)
9. Your Mp3 players firmware will update automatically
If you do not have the latest version of the Philips Device Manager installed (the latest is the version from the Philips website), then clicking the "Update" button will give you a false positive saying "The firmware on your device is already up to date."

I need help


Once you format your device it wipes out most of the information on your archos including the Firmware. You need to connect your archos to your computer and download the firmware from the main Archos site. Copy the firmware to your device. Diconnect the device from your computer using the safe disconnect feature. When your archos restarts it will either automatically recognize the new firmware and update itself or it will bring up the repair screen. One version of this screen has the options "do nothing", "repair device", or "format". Choose repair device. This will start the update sequence.
The other version of the white screen will say your system is damaged and show the options "done" or "repair device". Again select repair device and the update sequence will start. You may have to do this more than once in a repair session.
I have had to do this to my own device several times so save a copy of the firmware and your plugins on your computer to download back to the device if you have to do this again. Hopefully the next Archos update will take care of these annoying issues
I hope this helps!
