So, I don't know what happened to it, really. All I know is that it's broken. The screen on the left hand side is cracked with black... something coming out of it. When I turn it on, it shows up white. I can still play music just fine, I simply can't see what I'm doing. I'm assuming that with some luck, I can find a screen and replace it. What my question is is /where/ to find that screen, and /how/ to put it on again. Maybe a price estimate. I'm going to guess that I just unscrew the metal part from the back and replace the screen. Is any of the electronic memory stuff going to... I don't know, fall apart if I do that? I'm pretty technologically unexperienced, but I'm not inadept so I figure I'll be okay.

It is pretty easy. If running Windows just download the Sansa Updater (see link below) and install it.
Then, use the Mac/Linux instructions (even if running windows!) to put the e260 into MSC mode- turn e260 on, switch e260 hold switch to on, press and hold the e260s LEFT button "<<" while you plug the USB cable into the e260.
For me (running Windows XP) the Sansa updater automatically detected the e260 then and updated the e260's firmware.
Links to the updater, and alternative complete instructions for Mac/Linux are here http://forums.sandisk.com/sansa/board/message?board.id=e200&thread.id=10357
you have to hold down the power button for 13 whole seconds. I have had the same thing happen to mine and I dont know if there is a permanent way of fixing it but that should turn it off so you can turn it on again.
Hi you can get it fixed but the only place that do this is the makers as you cant take them apart you need special tools to do this and you cant buy them i know loads of people that have tried repairing these thamselves and end up destroying them so its not worth trying youl never get the cases off try going to sandisk site have a look on their site and get the customer support number or email give them a call or send them an email then they will tell you where their local repair center is to you its the only option you have but it will be cheaper than buying a new one so give them a call. Also depending on how long you have had it you might have some warranty left if not you will have to pay for repair but it can be fixed just might take few weeks for them to repair it as they repair thousands every week so contact them via their site ok let me know how you get on ok
