Question about SanDisk Sansa E280 MP3 Player

1 Answer

I have a Sansa E280 v1. The Battery seems to just stop working sometimes when the player gets squashed in my pockets. Is this a problem with the player or the battery? Could I replace the battery to solve the problem?

    One thing I've failed to mention is that it will work again once its been plugged into the wall but the moment i put it in my pockets it just shuts down and wont turn on.

How can you tell if it is a version 1 or 2?


Sansa e200 series has 3 not interchangeable versions of firmware:
  • version 1: e200, firmware starts with v1.xx.xxx
  • version 2: e200v2, firmware starts with v3.xx.xxx
  • version rhapsody: e200r, firmware starts with v1.xx.xxx
Site for the difference between these versions:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/193


The exact type should be on the back of the player: model e280R.
For the rhapsody there is only 1 firmware available.
The zip file can be downloaded here:
http://mp3support.sandisk.com/firmware/rhapsody-1.0.2.165.zip

When another firmware is needed, go to the download firmware wizard on next page and select your model:

Sansa E250R doesn't recognize a 8GB card nor does my computer


Is you E280 V1 or V2? The V1 will only recognize up to 2GB. You can find this by going to settings, info. If the firmware number starts with 1 it's a V1. V2's start with 3.

If you have a V2 place the card in a card reader to format. Format card to FAT32. If not recognized by a card reader the card may be defective.

If the player is a V1 the micro SDHC can still be used by loading RockBox firmware. But note when running RockBox the sync port will be disabled. To use port the player can still be started in the Sansa firmware but a SDHC card will not be accessible.

Sansa e280


getting warm is normal I've never seen one get HOT, you can pull out the battery from these players very easey by removing 4 screws from the back of the player take it out for a minute and this should reset the player, if not you may need a new battery these are on Amazon for short money.

E280 and my computer do not connect


These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
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/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.
