Re: Broken screen and usb won't open but i can charged...

Just a screen replacement would probably cost as much as another e260 - I see e260's for sale for $80-100 or you can get refurbished e250's for $40 (just got one from

It doesnt turn on and charge

If you charge off USB and the device won't turn on you could try charging it with a wall charge as some devices need to be on to charge from USB .

I am trying to recharge the battery, but it doesn't want to charge. I have plugged in to my laptop but it is still not charging. What do I do next??

I have the same one but the silver model.. On Sunday I opened mine to try to remove the dust on the screen from the inside, How does that happen? While trying to open it and move the computer like board inside to get to the screen to blow the dust off, it accidently broke off the wires to battery to the board. Now only plays when hooked up to the computer.

I also had a sansa clip mp3 player and used to charge it overnight and remove it in the morning to use but after a while it quit qorking and would only work if connected to a computer, the people at sansa said i probably burned out the battery because I would charge it for too long of time which it only needed 2-4 hours for complete charge not overnight which I always did. I also opened that one Sunday for first time to clean the screen and noticed oe wire from battery to board was broke off, that might have been the problem instead of the battery being burned out.

Open your's up and check the wires from the battery to the board maybe one is broken.

When you hook it up to your laptop open up my computer, and is it even being recognized by the laptop? In my computer under devices with removable devices it will say:
Since my computer is old mine say but will be similar for you:
3 1/2 Floppy(A:) (D:) CD-Rom Drive on back of computer- Left USB Port Removable Device (E:)
Right USB Port Removable Device (F:)

If the computer is not recognizing the device it will not charge. Also you'll know the computer is recognizing it because when I hook mine up a screen will pop up asking me what i would like to do with the mp3 player such as open with media player, take no action at all, etc.

Ipod screen says connected eject before disconnecting shows picture of charger but won,t do anything the time is stuck the battery isn,t charging help

I had a temp problem like this too! I found that by purchasing the plug adaptor, it got around to charging the battery on the iPod eventually. Check that the points of the USB cord at either ends haven't been bent or are at least clean.

Recharging mp3

Whenever the PD-6070 is connected to a PC, it will charge. The battery indicator on the OLED screen will slowly fill over and over as it is charging. When the charging is complete, the battery indicator will stay filled.

Ilo mp3 player won't turn on

Ok, SOME MP3/4 Players indeed charge from the USB port, albeit slowly... usually tho there comes a charger that plugs into the "Mains" and then plugs into the USB socket on the Player.. Sometimes if the Battery goes really "Flat" the USB port is unable to supplu enough "Current" sucessfully charge it up. (Hence the need for wall charger) IF it was entirely Via USB it would take many hours, I would at least think overnite. Hope that hepls.
