I have a sansa MP3 player, 4g of mem and tonight I was putting some new music on it and deleting some of the old, and after removing the cord from it, it began the "refresh database" as usual, but barely got far when it becme frozen, and won't respond to anything, the clock hasn't even changed with the time. I can't do anything with it.

Push in the middle select button and hold it in. as you are holding it in push the menu/power button and hold it in. you should have to hold them both for about 10 sec. or so then the screen black out and you can release it. that should work. it happened to me once and thats how i unfroze it

My sansa mp3 has frozen nothing moves,it is on , how can i dislock it


Hi,the Sansa is a portable media player made by SanDisk. As with all portable media players, there may come a time when your Sansa freezes up for one reason or another. This can be incredibly frustrating. Fortunately, there are a handful of different methods you can use to unfreeze the player.

Instructions

Wait for the battery in the Sansa to die completely. Once the battery is dead, you can plug the Sansa into your computer and download a firmware update for your particular model (see Resources below). You can also remove the battery from the Sansa if you want to speed up the process.


Plug the Sansa back into your computer. If the computer recognizes the device, the player should begin charging right away. This will unfreeze your Sansa.


Hold the power button down for roughly 10-20 seconds. The Sansa should turn off. Wait a few seconds and then turn the player back on.


Hold down the center button and the menu button at the same time. Do this for up to 30 seconds while watching the display screen.


Hope it helped.

Thanks for using fixya.

Its just frozen


Hi there,

Well first of all you can try the following steps -
1. Unfreeze a frozen Sansa Clip by pushing the power button up and holding it for 20 seconds. Release it, and then turn it on again.
2. Go to the Sansa website and download the "Sansa Firmware Updater."
3. Select "Run" when the updater installs. (Installation will take less than two minutes.)
4. Wait for the Sansa Firmware Updater to run through its system test. It will ask you to connect the Sansa Clip to the computer to update your Sansa's software.
5. Connect the Sansa Clip and then remove it from the computer when instructed. If this process does not unfreeze your Sansa Clip, contact Sansa support at the Sansa Firmware Updater website.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Hellp !


Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

New sansa e280 frozen!


Press the Menu button for about 20 seconds and it will turn off. Try restarting it.

If that doesn't work, download the firmware from Sandisk's site. Flick the hold switch over, press the record button, and plug it into your computer. That will start recovery mode. Open the firmware and install it.

Sansa m250 freeses on power up


throw it against the wall because sandisk is aware of this problem and does nothing about it... they should replace them for free but they don't... race condition in that firmware screws the player up...
