Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

My Sansa Sandisk MP3 will not turn on

I started college the other day, and to entertain myself in my free time, I brought my mp3 with me. I've had it in my purse mostly, and I did listen to it once three days ago. I had time to kill today, and was studying, but there was a tv show on and it was distracting me from my work. So I got my mp3 out, but it would not turn on. I tried my normal trick to get it working; pulling out the battery and putting it back in, and it usually does work. But it still would not turn on... I shuck my mp3 a little to hear if there was anything odd about the sound. My sister has the same mp3, and hers has less of a rattle in hers. So I looked on the back without the cover, and decided to check the components of the mp3. But I didn't want to harm anything inside, so I abandoned that idea. Not knowing what to do, I googled, and found this website. I did try the methods that were said with the other Sansa Disk MP3 question, but they didn't work. Does anyone know what I need to do to get my mp3 working?
My mp3 is a e250 model. I think it has less gbs on it compared to the e260 mentioned in the other sansa mp3 question. But I believed that both have the same basic shape.
Thank you

Tried this? 1.Push the hold switch towards the headphone jack so you see orange
2.Press and hold record on the left of the player
3.With record still being held down, plug into the computer
4.Once you see welcome to recovery mode on the screen of the player, let go of record
At this point you can reload the manual firmware by copying the firmware files to the detected removable disk.
Firmwares- Version 1 Version 2
Download the correct version or else it will render your device useless.Version can be found on the back plate at botton right.. Extract the downloaded file and transfer the contents to removable disk detected.After transferring,disconnect the player and let it upgrade the firmware

My sansa fuze is stuck - it is on but will not turn off, play music or anything.


It can be reset; here is the directions:

kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/188


Simply hold the power slide in the up position for 20 seconds or so, and viola, it resets itself. After letting go of the power slide, just turn it on like normal; it should start working again.

I've had to do it a couple of times in the few years I've owned it, myself. It is easy if you know about the procedure.


Have a nice day..

How do i take some memory off the sandisk sanse mp3 player?


1. Connect the USB cable to your Sansa MP3 player, then hook the other end to a free USB port on your computer. 2. Give the computer time to recognize the Sansa MP3 player. Once it has, double-click on the MP3 player?s icon to view the music files stored to memory. 3. Scroll through the list of audio files until you find the ones that you wish to delete from the Sansa MP3 player. 4. Click on single items or click and lasso multiple files. 5. Right-click on the highlighted files to pull down an action list and from there select Delete. The computer will ask if you really want to throw the file away. Select OK. 6. Exit from the window, then disconnect the USB cable from the Sansa MP3 player. The player will automatically turn off. The memory will update the first time you turn the player on after deleting songs.

Hello!


Hmm well I don't know what to tell you about any of that since I am having problems myself with my own Sansa Mp3 player, but for the restarting song problem, did you check to make sure your mp3 player wasn't on repeat or hold? because if either of those operations were on then you would not be able to change the song with the skip button! Hope this helps!
