Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the manufacturer?s website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings. http://www.sandisk.com/e200series/fwupgrade

My sansa when its connected to my computer comes on works syncs and everything so as i disconnect it from my computer it' s dead and wont turn on


Three possibilities;
1) You have a dead battery because the battery is no good.
2) You have a dead battery because your Sansa is no longer charging the battery.
3) You have a dead battery because you didn't leave your Sansa tethered long enough to charge it up.

When you have the Sansa c250 tethered to the computer, you should see a tiny yellow lightning bolt flashing, and a battery icon that shows the amount of charge on the battery.

If you see the lightning bolt, but the battery does not charge after being tethered to a working computer or charger for 24 hours, you may need a new battery. You can get one on Amazon.com. Here's a link:
http://www.amazon.com/HQRP-Replacement-Battery-Universal-Protector/dp/B001NZ981S

If you see the lightning bolt, and the battery charges after 24 hours, AND your player works when unplugged--Problem solved! You just need to let it charge for a longer time.

If you do not see the lightning bolt when the player is tethered, and the battery indicator shows "empty," It's likely that the internal plug to your Sansa c250 has broken. Your Sansa is no longer able to charge the battery.

If you happen to be an electrical engineer, or otherwise have a shop full of electronics equipment (including signal injector, volt-ohm meter, needle-tip soldering iron, and stereo magnifying goggles with work lamps) you may be able to fix it yourself. Otherwise, forget it-- your Sansa is dead.

If it's still under warranty, try to get it replaced. Failing that, it's time to get a new MP3 player.

Hope that helps! Please post a message to let others know what happened to your Sansa player.

If i plug my player to pc it shows charging and full charge but if i disconnect it will appear lowbat in the screen. and my pc doesn't dettect my unit


Try turning off the player and then back on again. The battery status should update and show full charge. Restart your PC and reconnect the player and it should appear again.
Simply pulling out the USB cable can cause a communication error, so it's always best to use the 'Eject USB device' option. When you want to disconnect, the player will be listed as an external hard drive when you open up 'My Computer', right click on the drive and select 'Eject'.

My SanDisk clip mp3 won't turn on at all.it only charges when plugged up to a computer


Disconnect the player from the Computer then press and hold the Reset button on it for 30 seconds to reset all the settings to the factory default.

Then, connect the player to a computer to charge it completely. Once the player is charged sufficiently then try turning it ON.

If the MP3 player still doesn't turn ON then the LCD screen is required to be replaced.

Cannot tell when sansa mp3 player is fully charged.


Make sure the hold switch is not engaged - it will interfere with the charging process. Here is a link to the full user's manual:

Left connected when shutdown


This happens to me every other time I connect to charge the battery. I remove the screws on the back and remove and reinstall the battery then back to normal but still without a full charge.

Sansa e260 problem


It might just need to be reformatted. If you don't care about deleting and redownloading everything with songs and videos and pictures, too, then reformat it. Just plug the mp3 player into your computer and right click on the icon in the MY COMPUTER window, and click on FORMAT. It should come to a new window and click on start format. If this doesn't work, then call me to help you any further. Ask for Maxwell at 1-(239)-945-0583.
