My Screen fades away!!

I turn on the mp3 player and go to my songs. As the song starts to play, the screen fades away and then i can't do anything! The blue circle is still lit up but nothing on the screen. This only happens when i go to play songs. Anything else i do on my mp3 player is fine, no fading screen. Does anybody have a clue what's going on??? I need some help!

Re: 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!

You will need to format your mp3 player, either using the software that was provided when you brought it or using thy simple processudre through my computer.

If you don't know how to do is using the software do it the other way.

Follow these steps. Click "start" - "My Computer" - look for you mp3 player usually called "Removable Disk" right-click on it and click on "Format".

Allow your Mp3 player to format and upload songs on it again and see if the problems been fixed.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful.

Mp3 player wont play songs or anything

Only 2 suggestions here: 1) Make sure your HOLD switch is not enabled. 2) Try to update the firmware If neither of these work, time to send the unit back to Sandisk

it sounds like you need to get a new battery. Your current battery might be strong enough to light the screen but not strong enough to launch the song. Thats only thing i can think of. Hope this helps! :-) please tell me if it does!

Computer does not show MP3 player as connected and how to stop a song playing

If you installed the firmware update, you might have forgotten to change the device to MSC mode.. try going to settings>USB mode>MSC This should probably work.. to stop a song while its playing, click the |<< button while you have the screen with the current song. (you can pause a song on this same screen with the >|| button) If you have gone back to any of the menu screens, wait for a couple seconds and the player will automatically go back tot he song display screen so you can stop the song.
